Castle Review: "Close Encounters of the Murderous Kind"

Lyle Lovett on Castle

Following a sub-par episode, Castle attempted to rebound with "Close Encounters of the Murderous Kind." Did it succeed? Not exactly.

The show got back to what it does best: unrealistic cases and witty banter. However, this case was almost too far-fetched. Much like last week, the installment jumped around a lot, from an alien abduction to a Chinese spy in the last few minutes. The writing was great, but the mystery wasn’t especially interesting.

Still, it's worth mentioning that Nathan Fillion is such an amazing actor. There is a reason why this man has such a cult following. The man is genius with his facial expressions, and I, for one, could watch a whole hour of him doing just that.

The big guest star of this episode was Lyle Lovett, who seemed like he would be a perfect actor for this case. He's sorta creepy looking, fitting right into an alien storyline. His character was completely underused, though. Any no-name actor could have played this role, as Lovett deserved a better part.
