Re: Castle: Season 3 (Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic) - Discussion & Spoi

Great ep! Let's just hope we're past the silly 1980's stuff like in "Remington Steele" where they dragged out the Laura/Remington relationship (the "will they or won't they get together") so long that people lose interest. I say this as a fan of that show. By the time they actually did get together, it was the series finale and no one much cared at that point. Indeed, by the 4th season, the ratings were falling big time as the writers concocted ever-more ridiculous means to keep the two main characters apart.

When they probably hook up in the end, it was done so poorly, it left a bad taste in one's mouth and even then, they never even show them kiss, it ends with a lamp being turned off in a window. Stupid.

I mention "Remington" because there are similarities: the woman is the "real" cop, the man is a decent investigator, but not a legitimate one, the will they/won't they, etc. Again, let's hope we've moved beyond the silly 1980s soap opera conventions, as one poster wrote above.
