Re: Castle: "Flowers for Your Grave" 3/9 (Nathan Fillion, Stana Katic)

I loved it. The chemistry was amazing and the humor was pretty funny. I tuned in only because if it has Nathan Fillion in some major role, it's bound to be decent. I'm hoping it doesn't get canceled, another season would be great.

I enjoyed it. It's Moonlighting.

I agree that Nathan Fillion's presence is a big factor. He's such an easy actor to like.

We'll give this a shot.

Anyone notice that fiction within fiction usually sucks bigtime? Like all the supposed blockbuster movies in America's Sweethearts? Or the titles of the novels in this show?

I enjoyed it, mostly for the characters, and to be honest, I probably wouldn't have even watched it. But like Bones I watched it because of someone from a previous Joss Whedon show, and enjoyed it. So I'll continue to watch.

Is it strange that this felt more Joss-y than Dollhouse?
I know EXACTLY what you mean. I just watched this episode on ABC.com for the first time, and only because of Fillion. He definitely carries this show, if he wasn't in it, it would not be interesting at all, there are too many other shows like it, so he makes the show. I know what you mean though, Fillion seemed to act more like he was under the direction of Joss than the characters on Dollhouse. It just has a Jossy kinda feelin to it, I guess cause of Fillion, he is Jossy lol

Watchin' it now, fifteen minutes in, and I'm already bored with it.
I just couldn't finish it. Not only formulaic, but just plain boring. The would-be "sparkling banter" is just laying there.

It's a real poor man's Moonlighting wannabe. No chemistry. No energy. The story itself isn't too interesting. It too closely resembles the leads dynamic in The Mentalist.

Nope. Doubt I'll get back to this one.

Tell me about it. I swear it is like Joss is writing Castle. Dollhouse just pales in comparison to this. Anyways hopefully this will generate more buzz and maybe we can see more ex Wheedon alum
