Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

That will happen definitely as Castle has already predicted in the last episode featuring him.

Looking forward to it since his episodes were always awesome and tense.. i was a bit shocked how Castle unloaded the gun in his chest a while ago but it was a cool scene showing how far Castle would go to protect the ones he loves.

"Castle" scored a 2.3 for Monday's episode. @BigDaddy you think the show will be cancelled? I'm not sure what you mean by a "proper ending". Unless you mean Marlowe might play around with the trope of a series finale.
I mean it will be canceled (not this year) before the creators have time to wrap things up.

I think they introduced Castle's dad because Beckette's mom case is closing up. It won't end anytime soon, even the rerun came in first in its timeslot.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I was disappointed with this episode. Trotting out the horror tropes really didn't work for me, and Castle buying into the video was too much, given he confessed in the zombie episode that he gives into the over the top cases to annoy Beckett.

I guess what really bothered me is that I was hoping for some fallout from the Alexis kidnapping, and neither she nor Martha appeared in the episode.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Yeah, I really hate it when Castle acts all childish and believes in aliens or ghosts and stuff. This is a frickin' adult crime dramedy, not X-Files.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Except that is part of Rick's character, and has been all through the series. He's often been described as a "manchild" by Kate and others, it's part of his charm.

I completely forgot that we returned from hiatus yesterday night. Will have to catch this sometime later.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

@Vendikarr & Forbin: I had the same reaction. I've complained before when he acted superstitious and gullible, and other posters have suggested that maybe he was just putting on an act -- and as Vendikarr said, an earlier episode confirmed that. But here Castle was written in full-on Shaggy mode, cowering in genuine fear of a silly superstition, something that he knew to be a copy of something from a movie. It was just annoying.

I mean, even aside from Castle's characterization issues, you know that in a mystery show like this, the crime is going to be solvable, that it will have an explanation the detectives can uncover in the final act. So therefore it's not going to come down to some supernatural mystery. So all that time wasted positing oogy-boogy theories just distracted from the kind of actual investigation that a mystery show is supposed to be about.

And not only was this episode steeped in the things that have annoyed me about the show in the past few seasons, but it also brought back an annoying habit the show had in the first two, mostly superior seasons: Having the cops overlook something obvious that they should have considered in order to artificially keep them from figuring out the mystery. In this case, it was Espo (or was it Ryan?) offhandedly mentioning the other guy who was falsely accused of the murders, and then nobody bothering to ask anything about that other guy. As soon as he said there was another guy, I instantly perked up and thought "Okay, that's got to be significant or they wouldn't have mentioned it," and when the characters just ignored that potential lead for no reason, that confirmed that the other guy had something to do with the killings.

One more thing that didn't make sense: How come Perlmutter didn't find any signs of electrocution in the victims? There should've been burns on the skin or clothing, evidence of electrocution in the muscles, something.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I recorded this, but couldn't get around to watching it last night. After reading all this maybe I'll just wait until the weekend to watch it.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I didn't mind the episode too much, although I do agree that they went a little overboard with Castle's reaction to the tape. I could see him being kind of freaked out, but it was a little to over the top to have him so convinced that there was something supernatural going on.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Yeah Castle's reaction was a little over the top, but still fun. As long as I'm having fun watching TV I don't mind.

If any of you also watch Bones you wouldn't mind the stupid little things Castle does. He's still fun and somewhat in characters. After eight years Bones is still annoying.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I enjoyed this episode well enough - though I was thinking during it "oh this episode is gonna annoy TrekBBS." The thing about Castle's reaction is that when things actually got serious there in the cabin he was perfectly rational, asking about friends or family that might want revenge and not cowering from the actual killer.

Brennan herself, yes, I agree. I generally love the rest of the cast though, and especially Hodgens and Angela together.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Watched it last night. It was better than I thought it would be, but probably my least favorite of the season.

Brennan's been getting a little better this season as a character. I guess motherhood and living with Booth has made her slightly less socially retarded. But it's a testament to the show and the rest of the cast that I keep tuning in when the titular lead is my least favorite character.
