Review of Castle

60 minutes

Wildly famous mystery novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), who is bored with his own success, learns that a real-world copycat killer has started staging murder scenes depicted in his novels. Rick is soon questioned by NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), a very bright, aggressive detective who keeps her investigations under tight rein. Rick and Kate's styles instantly clash, yet sparks begin to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle steps in to help find the killer. And once that case is solved, he and Beckett build upon their new relationship as they look to solve strange homicides in New York - as much fun as one can have with death & murder. Castle is kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother, Martha Rodgers (Susan Sullivan) and quick-witted teenage daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn).

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Dynamic show, engaging characters, interesting cases, some new plots some not so new ones. Nathan Fillion plays a charming best steller and female lead Stania Katic is a surprisingly great disovery. didn't know her before the show, which I have been watching pretty much since the beginning. Not just pretty, but good actress and she is willing to put up with Fillon's apparent set drama. The characters/ actors have very good chemistry and the season archs are great but don't take away from the individual episodes. I think with the beginning of season 7, I am loosing interest though. It is just one of those series that like Bones, and even worse Criminal Minds or NCIS has sort of overstayed its welcome. But the first 6 seasons were definitley among the better in the crime TV series out there.
