This was sort of an odd episode of 'Castle,' in that it seemed like it was either filmed before the drama of the past two weeks (Beckett nearly died! Castle invited her to move in!), or they're simply back-burnering that storyline. Either way, it was kind of a funny episode with lots of great lines from Castle. That's true of every episode, though. The writing is great.
The guy who played Rupert Bentley looked familiar, so I looked him up. It's Erick Avari, who was actually in the 1999 movie, 'The Mummy,' with Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz. 'Castle' is really good about stuff like that; little nods to movies and TV shows, like the references to Nathan Fillion's 'Firefly' in previous episodes. It's fun, because it makes us feel like we're in on the joke, but it's not done in an overbearing way.
The scene where Castle put the hat on and went all 'Indiana Jones' falls into that category, and of course, the Scooby Doo references. That series had a few Mummy episodes, but the one I'm thinking of is the classic 'Scooby Doo and the Mummy's Curse.' "This is the part where you say, 'And I would have gotten away with it, too, if it weren't for you meddling kids,'" Castle told Stanford Raynes.
