Castle Episode Stills from "Sucker Punch"

On Monday night, Castle and Beckett are called in to investigate the death of an Irish mobster.

However, our second-favorite crime-fighting duo (sorry, but there's only one Bones and Booth) uncovers a pair of unexpected developments along the way:

1. They may be on to an international drug smuggling operation.

2. They also think the killer was involved in the murder of Beckett's mom.

Max-You are so right Bones and Booth are my #1 and Castle & Becket are my 2nd favs.

I really like the characters on this show - but if the 'background music' gets any louder, it will be all but impossible to hear what is being said. It is soooooooo distracting and annoying. I have noticed this trend on other shows as well, but currently this one seems to be the worst offender of highlighted music in all the wrong places. I am losing interest and eventually will turn to something else as I have done before. I have discussed this with others and they all agree about the musical distractions. Many others have moved on already.
Please dial it down - no one needs that much musical intervention.

I really enjoyed this episode not so much for Castle/Beckett relationship but for Castle's capacity to love and care and for that love and care to be returned. We have already seen that with his mother and daughter. We have seen that with Ryan and Esposito - a friendship cum sibling rivalry that is always in good fun.
But what really touched me was Castle's reaching out to Lanie and clear concern for her. One got the sense that if duty did not call, as it were, Castle would have stayed with Lanie to provide support. 'Cause that's that friends do.
We can only hope that Beckett can learn to let her guard down.

One last thing - regarding leading men. Have you all noticed a recurring theme with our leading men in Action Dramas: Castle, Booth (Bones), DiNozzo (NCIS)?
To wit: Handsome (not pretty), reasonably built but not "packed", masculine but not butch, goofy (to cover old wounds), loyal, faithful, and in the end, total romantics.
And sadly, the women in their lives don't recognise the value of their love.
