The other thing that I forgot to add, that drew me into the series, is the humour and the fact that this show doesn't take its self too seriously.
That's what I like about it too. I'm not usually into these kind of shows.

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

^ I'm not really into buddy cop shows or crime shows in general myself, but "Castle" is an almost kind of satirical take on it which I've enjoyed immensely. I just hope the march to May (no pun intended) is as good as last year was!!

Too bad (or not) they didn't have these name contraction thingies when Moonlighting and Cheers were on the air.

Mavid? Daddy? Eee.

Siane? Dam?

Yoiks.

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight



A recent Castle panel at Paylefest 2012.. quite lengthy and i haven't seen it completely but the first 10 minutes or so should put any Caskett (yes i said it and i like it.. deal with it! ) fans at ease.. Marlowe will put them together! And Stana seems to blow any shipper right out of the water.. she's definitely the greatest shipper of us all!

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

This should hold me over...and yep, like I've said before in the thread, both Nathan and Stana have embraced Caskett and are aware of the fans cheering them on!

To me it's the major arc of the show. The whole Mommy Got Murdered conspiracy is going off the rails for me... I want them to solve it NOW, because if it keeps going it's going to twist in on itself and begin to make no sense (which I feel it's starting to.)

Remember the X-Files conspiracy... did that ever REALLY make sense?

I'm sure the writers haven't "solved" the murder--ie, it's not planned out--so they are winging it. Which spells disaster to me.

Just solve it, move on. To Caskett. Or maybe Bastle.

Definitely. Things are heading down that path, and hopefully they won't drag it on that much longer...

Yep, and it did in parts . Not all the time though.

It kind of looks that way to me as well. And that isn't good.

Yep .

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

Yeah I will be upset if the coupling doesn't happen at the end of the season...but won't be surprised. We've had more hints and teasing this season than at any previous time before, and Kate's wall is finally starting to come down. They're relationship has evolved as well as they've become closer. I think the first step, will be that Kate will reveal to Rick at some point that she heard him say he loved her after she was shot. Remember he still thinks she doesn't remember anything, since he lied to cover her PTSD. I don't know how they're going to top last season's finale though. That is really what hooked me on the show and made me go back and watch everything beforehand during the summer time.

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

I don't think season finales should be plotted based on "How do we top the last one?" That tends to lead to increasingly more ridiculous and over-the-top finales (see modern Doctor Who for a classic illustration). If a season finale really stands out as a special event, it's because it came by that power honestly, as a natural evolution of the story arcs at that point. If you try to force the next season's story arcs into an artificial climax just to try to top what came before, it won't work as well and it'll cheapen both finales. So it's best not to try -- just to let the really big finale stand as the high point it was and not try to compete with it. Look at Star Trek: TNG. After "The Best of Both Worlds," they did continue doing cliffhanger finales every season, but none of those other finales tried to tell a story as massive and cataclysmic as BoBW did.
