Another good ep, but im getting utterly sick of Josh just butting in whilly nilly. I hope he gets killed. :P
My biggest problem with the show is the other characters have minimal personal story due to the Castle/Beckett story and the show really could do with actually you know having more screen time and character depth for everyone. At the moment Beckett is dating a doctor named Josh - that all I know about the guy.

That, and the fact he ONLY shows up whenever them two are about to finally throw caution to the wind and do something. That's whats annoying me, his only purpose is for that and they've made no attempt to make him into something other than "the guy that gets in the way", at least Michael Trucco was a fellow cop (or was he FBI?) who did something.

Probably the closest thing I can think of would be "Fantasy Football"

You pick the team, you pick the players. These are the ones you want to "be together"

Not really a sports fan, though. I tend to find most sports to be pretty boring.


Edit: Just noticed this was already mentioned, so I guess I'm just adding my voice to the mix.

Yeah, fantasy sports makes sense too. The only problem is you lose the Ship to Ship Combat analogue.

I can just see the casting call that went out for Josh's character. "Must be a convincing cockblocker".

Is it just me, or is that a Green Lantern t-shirt? Funny that after he was the main character in one of my favorite fake film trailers.

Yes, it is a GL T-shirt, no doubt tying into the fact that Fillion is doing the voice of Hal Jordan in the animated film Green Lantern: Emerald Knights, which will be coming out on DVD in June, about a week before the live-action feature film hits theaters.

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

Interesting episode. Its opening seemed more like a typical House opening, with the patient showing symptoms during a normal event, than a typical Castle opening, with the victim found already dead. But I guess it had to be so under the circumstances.

I'm glad they acknowledged that the incident would cause a mistrial, and had the investigation take place between trials of the defendant. That way, they avoided a lot of the usual legal malarkey about investigations continuing during a trial and other sorts of courtroom melodrama.

It's also a relief to finally get an Alexis-heavy episode again. She's been largely absent for most of the season, I'd guess because of Molly C. Quinn's academic commitments. It's good to see her featured more again, though I am getting a little tired both of Castle being unjustifiably suspicious/protective of his daughter and of Alexis being so idealized. I mean, I love it that she's such a great person, but sometimes it's a little hagiographic.

New York nitpick alert: While they get points for citing the Angelika, which is a real movie theater in the East Village, it's not a revival house. The last time I checked, it was an art theater showing the latest new indies and foreign films, but NOT the sort of place that would schedule a screening of FORBIDDEN PLANET.

(That would be the Film Forum, several blocks away.)

Good episode, though. Nice and twisty . . . although you knew the D.A. was up to no good once you saw he played by Bruce Davison!

This was a fun episode. And that was my first thought when I saw Bruce Davison too. My only problem with that is that it's getting to a point now where I can figure out who's gonna be the bad guy based solely on who the guest actors are.
