Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

But a writer portraying characters who are native New Yorkers would not put British slang in their mouths just because he "liked" it, because that would be inauthentic. It's the sort of thing I'd expect from a British writer who doesn't realize that Americans don't use those idioms.

I don't know, maybe some New Yorkers do use those idioms? It's a pretty cosmopolitan town, after all.
