Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Terri Edda Miller & Andrew W. Marlowe Director: Rob Bowman Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: May 7, 2012 It’s not enough, apparently, that the producers of CASTLE spent most of Season Three teasing us with the will they/won’t they relationship between author and dilettante crime fighter Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett. It’s not enough that they spent this entire season doing the same. They had to spend the entire season finale needlessly and ridiculously teasing us with “Always.” We do […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Undead Again”

Stana Katic as Beckett and Nathan Fillion as Castle on CASTLE Undead Again | (c) 2012 ABC/RICHARD CARTWRIGHT

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Alexi Hawley Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 30, 2012 Those of us CASTLE fans who have been waiting none too patiently for Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) to get their game on, so to speak, get some hope in “Undead Again.” The episode is for the most part classic CASTLE fluff – until near the end…. The episode starts, however with Castle sneaking up on daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn) in their ongoing laser tag game. Only […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Headhunters”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Alexi Hawley Director: John Terlesky Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 14, 2012 It’s a little more back to business, as usual, on CASTLE, with a nice balance of comedy and some angst.  And it’s always fun to see Adam Baldwin doing his thing and he doesn’t grunt this time. Plus, the producers guiding the writers have offered us some hope that we will see Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) get their act together in the […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “The Limey”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Elizabeth Davis Director: Bill Roe Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: April 2, 2012 Now, I get it. The producers of CASTLE are busy throwing a massive monkey wrench into the whole Castle/Beckett couple thing to ratchet up the drama for the next six weeks so that they can have a massively explosive season finale/cliffhanger and they still won’t let Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) get together even after that because they’re still stuck in the whole relationship equals […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “47 Seconds”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Shalisha Francis Director: Paul Holahan Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: March 26, 2012 ABC has been teasing the whole “I remember getting shot,” thing since last week’s episode, so you kind of go into “47 Seconds” expecting a more intense episode of CASTLE, which you sort of have. Just as a quick recap, the memory thing comes from last season’s cliffhanger finale, in which Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) got shot, and Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) held her and finally declared his […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “A Dance With Death”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Moira Kirland Director: Kevin Hooks Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: March 19, 2012 As Tom Bergeron noted in his sign-off on DANCING WITH THE STARS Season 14 premiere this week, that “A Dance With Death” aired after DWTS‘ season premiere was probably not a coincidence. Because this episode of CASTLE just happens to take place at a dance competition show. Synergy, indeed, Mr. Bergeron. And, as CASTLE episodes go, it’s pretty much business as usual. Author Richard Castle’s (Nathon Fillion) mother, actress Martha Rogers […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Once Upon a Crime”

Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic and Taylor Kinney in CASTLE - Season 4 - "Once Upon A Crime" | ©2012 ABC/Karen Neal

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Kate Sargeant Director: Jeff Bleckner Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 27, 2012 At first, “Once Upon a Crime” feels like CASTLE has bought into Disney’s infamous synergy (not unlike some of the references that pop up with appalling regularity on ONCE UPON A CRIME, also on the Disney-owned ABC). You’ve got a woman dressed as Little Red Riding Hood turning up dead in Central Park with what looks like gashes from a wold all over her. The Snow White shows up dead with […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Linchpin”

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 20, 2012 “Linchpin” is one of those odd episodes of CASTLE that feels satisfying in the moment, but when you think about it later, something feels off. Maybe it’s because it falls back on the ol’ “Who’s the Real Bad Guy” routine that’s more than a little clicheed. Or that even hoarier cliche of having to save the world. So Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Becket (Stana Katic) just barely get out […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “Pandora”

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: David Amann Director: Bryan Spicer Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 13, 2012 The interesting thing about “Pandora,” the first of a two-part CASTLE, is that it’s not about whodunit. We see that in the first scene, as a man comes crashing through an upper story window onto a car, then we see the killer looking through the window. Huh? Well, there’s lots of that floating around. Author Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) is the last to find out that his daughter Alexis […]Read On »

TV Review: CASTLE – Season 4 – “The Blue Butterfly”

Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion in CASTLE - "The Blue Butterfly" | ©2012 ABC/Karen Neal

Stars: Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic, Susan Sullivan, Molly Quinn, Tamala Jones, Seamus Deaver, Jon Huertas, Penny Johnson Jerald Writer: Rob Hanning Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: ABC, Monday nights, 10 p.m. Original Telecast: February 7, 2012 In “The Blue Butterfly,” the CASTLE team pays tribute to the great detective films of yore with a case that harkens back to June 1947, and let’s be real here, the result is little more than an excuse to get the cast all duded up in great 1940s fashions and hairstyles. But it’s a really good excuse! The 1940s scenes happen as Castle (Nathan Fillion) reads the 1947 diary […]Read On »
