When ABC’s CASTLE ended its seventh season this spring, it looked as though the series might be wrapping up. After all, our hero Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) had not only married the love of his life, NYPD homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), he’d also confronted and solved the haunting childhood memory that set him on the path to becoming a famous mystery writer in the first place. Beckett had aced her police captain’s exam and had been approached about running for political office. Castle’s daughter Alexis (Molly C. Quinn) was excelling in college, Beckett’s colleagues Esposito (Jon Huertas) and […]Read On »

When last we saw Nathan Fillion’s best-selling novelist Richard Castle in the Season 6 finale of ABC’s CASTLE, he was forced off the road and into a fiery crash while on the way to his own wedding. Much of the audience was almost as aghast as Castle’s bride-to-be, NYPD homicide detective Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic. CASTLE begins its seventh season Monday, September 29 at 10 PM. Series creator Andrew W. Marlowe and his fellow executive producer, show runner David Amann, are at a party thrown by ABC for its show runners and the Television Critics Association, where they […]Read On »

Actress Penny Johnson Jerald has spent the last three years playing NYPD Captain Victoria Gates on ABC’s CASTLE, Mondays at 10 PM. Gates is the mostly no-nonsense boss of homicide detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and, although the captain isn’t technically the boss of Beckett’s fiancé Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), the top cop has no trouble telling him what to do, either. As CASTLE fans will recall, Gates came in after the murder of her well-loved predecessor, Captain Roy Montgomery, played by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, which was a major plot point. Jerald is used to series with big story twists – […]Read On »

Wright Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: September 30, 2013 If you  have ever watched a TV show or movie that dealt with a topic you know particularly well, and groaned repeatedly when the writers messed up details that if they’d only bothered to do a modicum of research wouldn’t have been messed up, then you’ll understand how I reacted to the “Dreamworld” episode of CASTLE. You see, some years ago, I co-wrote a book on poisons for […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Rob Hanning Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: September 23, 2013 So we were left hanging at the end of last season, with Castle (Nathan Fillion) down on one knee, proposing marriage. Fade in on “Valkyrie” with Beckett (Stana Katic) thrilled that he proposed. It’s CASTLE, of course it’s not clear cut. Turns out she was afraid he was trying to break up. But here’s where it gets good. Instead of being a jerk about her new job and insisting […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Andrew W. Marlowe Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 13, 2013 I simply do not understand why the producers of CASTLE seem to feel the need to jerk their viewers around with this constant will they/won’t they game between Castle (Nathan Filion) and Beckett (Stana Katic). They spent four season playing with getting the two together – not only taking a miserably long time, but doing it in the most excrutiating way. Then they spent a good chunk of last season […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “The Wild Rover”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Terencce Paul Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 1o p.m. Original Telecast: March 25, 2013 “The Wild Rover” starts out as your standard CASTLE episode, with light-hearted banter between Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic), a weirdly positioned stiff and the usual odd clues. But it quickly turns into something really extraordinary – namely CASTLE at it’s best. The victim is a cupcake baker found shot to death in a mixing bowl of his batter. But, lo, there’s a magic briefcase filled with $50,000 […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 5 – “Scared to Death”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Shalisha Francis Director: Ron Underwood Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: March 18, 2013 Let’s be real. CASTLE is never going get it right regarding police procedure. The writers routinely screw up the real world facts in favor of a cool connection, and most of the time we don’t really mind because we know going in this is not about accuracy, it’s about fun. In “Scared to Death,” we get plenty of the amusement factor – which is why this didn’t get a lower […]Read On »

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer:  Andrew W. Marlowe Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 25, 2013 Did we or did we not call in last week’s episode of CASTLE, “Target?” Now, in “Hunt,” we are vindicated – Alexis (Molly Quinn) was, indeed, the target in the double kidnapping. Yes! Better yet, the circumstances were totally unexpected and there was only one loose end left dangling. Okay, it may have gotten picked up, but I didn’t hear that part. So just as the Feds were telling […]Read On »
