Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

Next week's episode promo had me actually yell out in excitement! I'm such a fanboy and nerd

Point of no return and this week will be very long!

As to the current episode:

Liked it.. the case seemed interesting enough but usually my mind wandered off somewhere, missed some clues and when i finally paid attention again i was confused because i apparently missed some key explanations.. oh well, no harm done because i rarely watch Castle for the cases.

I just absolutely loved the personal stuff in this episode.. Martha and Alexis finally have a bit to do and not only saying 2 lines, hugely enjoyed the bro's out with their theory testing (i so like them.. i'd watch a show with them as the leads anytime!) and also the small moments between Castle and Beckett such as him bringing her coffee again and she watches up, flashes a big smile and says I love you with her eyes.. it seemed like an old married couple where both of them know each other inside out and do stuff for each other without having to ask for it.

Yeah.. i love the show but i'll be probably drooling on the floor come next week when almost 4 years are starting to pay off and there's still a few episodes left in the season!

The scene in the morgue, when Alexis crossed near front of Lanie and thru the harsh lighting. My god, that girl is white! I think her image is still burned into my screen!!

I love her little ginger face, and I know redheads don't tan well, but - wow.

In ancient times having a fair skin was considered a sign of nobility and Molly Quinn is nothing but noble.

And on a side note: Recently she "revealed" that she's 18 now giving me finally the feeling i'm not a pervert anymore.. much

Good episode. I really like seeing Alexis doing the intern thing. I hope they keep her there a little longer.

I was also greatly amused by what Martha promised the critic (can't remember her name) Rick would do for her. They stretched it out just long enough to make you feel uncomfortable for him until it was revealed he just had to read her novel.

"Just?" Oh, you poor innocent layperson. From a writer's standpoint, that's one of the worst things it could've been. It's overwhelmingly likely to be a piece of crap, since most people who think they can write don't have a clue. It'll be taking up precious time he needs to devote to his own work. It'll set a dangerous precedent that other people will start sending him their books to read (more than they probably do already) and putting even more of a burden on him. It'll expose him to the risk of frivolous and expensive litigation if the critic sees something in a future Castle book that vaguely reminds her of what she wrote. And what is he going to tell the critic? If he gives it anything like an honest review, she may be furious and punish Martha for it. And if he lies and tells her it's good, she might press him to help her get it published, and then what would he do?

All told, it's a pretty awful position for Martha to have placed him in.

^Fair enough. I was just looking at it from the perspective that he might have to go on a date with her. What you're describing does sound worse.

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

Yeah I laughed at that...think that was kind of the gag they were going for. Plus Rick's reaction kind of suggested that.

Great but not unexpected news...ABC is renewing "Castle" among other shows.

You know, that never even occured to me. I always assumed that it would be publishing-related, because, yeah, that's the usual cliche for writers:

"I have great idea for a book. How about you write it and we split the money?"

"Would you read my ms. and tell me what you really think of it? I won't be offended, honest. And I certainly won't accuse you of stealing my ideas later."

"Can you introduce me to your agent? Your editor?"

And you'll note that she wanted him to somehow get the manuscript into his publisher's hands as well. And the ms. looked like it was at least 1,000 pages long. (Seriously, it was a doorstop.)

Trust me, every writer watching was groaning in recognition . . . .

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

"47 Seconds" is tonight and looks to be a significant turning point in the Caskett relationship! I'm excited. There is a hockey game though tonight as well, so I'll probably most likely DVR this and watch it later now that I can do this

Also one final thing about last week's episode with the whole Martha thing...Rick did give her the idea in the first place indirectly, when he told her if he could help with anything to let him know. Christopher seems to be positing a worst case possibility. As has been brought up earlier in the thread by Christopher I think as well, we've seen Rick do little actual writing in this season. The publication of the latest Niki Heat novel happened in the summer time of course as we know during the time he was giving Kate her space, I don't quite recall, but we've heard very little from Rick about ideas for his current book. He could be taking a short hiatus (although this doesn't seem likely since from my limited experience writers seem to go from one project to the next right away if they can) and has been focusing on cases quite a bit this year. We really don't know what Rick does in his spare time during the year lol.

Which proved to be an unwise thing to say, as we saw.

No, the writers themselves did that, which was the point of the punch line -- that Castle's offer to help Martha came back to bite him. As Greg said, every writer watching surely groaned in recognition, so it's not just me. All I was doing was explaining it to the non-writers out there who missed the joke.

Re: "Castle" season 4 begins tonight

Ooops...bad job on me then and fair enough. I have to admit it went over my head and like TheSeeker I was looking at it from the other perspective as well Maybe it was a published writer's joke thing?
