No problem.. everyone's entitled to their opinion. I find it only curious how someone can watch a show where they dislike one of the leads.
It's possible if it's just one of the leads, but you like everybody else, and the show in general.

My wife and I have this problem with Bones. We pretty much can't stand Brennan. But we like Boreanaz and the secondary characters so much, we keep watching and just put up with Brennan's cartoonish stupidity.

Likewise the last season and a half of Buffy. Buffy herself became very unlikeable. But we still liked everybody else.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I understand Christopher's point, but I was really thinking about plot wise that we wouldnt' see much of Alexis and agree with Emilia about her development. Last season was a crisis of faith for her. She was dealing with situations that she really hadn't before and was struggling to figure out for the first time what to do with her life. I thought it was fascinating, I know some of us in the thread disagreed about her character arc. That's why I brought up the coroner internship. That is good way of keeping the character around if she's not going to go off to college. I suspect though we could see that happen during the season still.

As for Caskett...I'm excited to see where this goes. I think as I mentioned before that we're going to be Joanna Beckett plot heavy this season, and that this will interfere with their relationship...remember that Rick is hiding things from Kate, that usually never goes well with these types of things.

I know he's busy right now...but I would love for Joss Whedon to guest direct an episode

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

To me it was always clear they would keep Molly Q./Alexis on the show... she's an integral part of Castle's life and quite popular. I just hope they'd use Martha and her more.. they are a hoot and their scenes are always so funny/emotional/moving/etc.

I don't think that Castle is hiding anything anymore.. he's said his piece fully in the season 4 finale when he laid everything in front of Beckett. Maybe only the details are missing what he's learned but now that the cat is out of the bag he can fill her in on the details.. there just was not enough time in the finale to do so and then stuff.. happened

Given what we already know about the season opener they will talk some more and open up to each other and i so look forward to these developments.. i've always liked the writing on the show and think that their relationship is one of the more realistic ones on TV and within TV constraints so i can assume it will remain so and we will get endless hours of fun and drama.

About 3 weeks to go!

Ok, that was great, my anticipation for the show starting back up just jumped a few notches!! I couldn't help but notice how badly Beckett's hair was mussed up, but Castle's seems perfect.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

ew.com

In the upcoming season of the ABC drama, the mystery writer heads off to a Comic-Con-style fan convention. There he meets the former star of a sci-fi cult-favorite TV show whose career and personal life has gone down the tubes since the show was cancelled. That character, Captain Max Richards will be played by Eureka actor Ed Quinn.

Meanwhile, we’re told you can expect plenty of Firefly winks in the hour, just as you might expect. Between the fan convention setting and the washed-up sci-fi actor character, there’s plenty of opportunity for Castle to have some fun with this setup.
Sounds like a really fun episode

I really loved how they fell off the bed like two scared teenagers when Martha came home.

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

Here we go! The summer is over and we are back in business!

I'm c&p my posting from a dedicated Castle board about my thoughts:

Well.. this summer was hard TV wise after the season 4 finale.

This season opener.. perfection! I love everything about it from the first minute.. there was never a dull stretch and they solved so much and laid the groundwork for phase two.

I saw the sneak peak of the first scene (yeah.. i'm weak but still seeing the full scene was so worth it and still so funny, sexy and above all romantic. I guess most of us were/are in an adult relationship so we all know how it feels and it takes me back to very fond memories. They joy and the fun and the urge to sweat all day is just so evident in this scene which i attribute to the writing and the acting of both of them.
This is written from life itself because everyone understands the feeling and this is why i believe the show is in very good and safe hands, no danger of any curse at all.

Maddox' death came as a surprise (thank god they didn't spoil that) but it served a greater purpose.. we now know the truth about the whole case but at the moment the power is on the other side and there's not much that can be done right now. However the way this plays out shows a fundamental change in Beckett.. honestly, for a second i really believed she'd shoot him.. that would have been Beckett 1.0 without a question but she has evolved. With any other similar case she'd have done the right thing and looked for evidence to put the guy behind bars for good but when it came to her mother's case she went into rage mode and it would have led to nowhere.. possibly putting him out of reach forever and her behind bars. The scene where the team is begging Ryan not to call Gates (well.. in Espo's case not so much begging as breaking of arms!) shows that others know it too and are concerned for her because they think they know her and that might have been true up until a day ago (no one save Castle know about her fundamental change the night before).

So definitely looking forward to Johana Beckett's case Phase Two.. taking down a Senator when you basically have nothing will not be easy but Beckett has a kickass team and she's in control now.

As to Beckett and Castle in general:

Wow.. they are so good together. Beckett was always so reserved and closed up.. we know she has a great sense of humor and as the show progressed through the years she opened up more and more but there was still this final line she never crossed publicly to show who she really is. I think her mother's murder also held her back from fully enjoying life but now that everything is gone we see the true her and boy does she like sex! I mean everyone likes sex but to see Beckett in hungry, horny and insatiable mode was just so awesome it defies words. We know Castle llikes to do it but to see Beckett become his equal is just so awesome and i hope we will see quite a bit more of her playful side. We all know her wicked sense of humor and i'm just dying to see what the writers can come up with now that they have so much more to play with.

I'm definitely looking forward to the others finding out.. they are one big, extended family who care for each other and would put their lives and careers on the line for each other but a development so big is bound to lead to much excitement. I always liked the scenes when Beckett became part of Castle's family for a short while and how effortlessly Martha and Alexis included her.. can't wait for both of them to find out and then it becoming normal for all of them to have breakfast or dinner (and maybe even gross Alexis out by insinuating what goes on behind closed doors ).

Nicest scene? Beckett desperately needing a hug and falling into Castle's arms. Period. Beckett was always tough and this is her at her most vulnerable and she is scared but this time she has someone who cares about her so much that she now can show this "weakness" and not think about it. I also love the visuals of the scene.. Stana is not smalll (especially because she mostly wears heels) but Nathan is really tall and quite broad but now that Stana is without heels and with her "true" height the difference became quite apparent. I mention this because visually it made Castle appear that much more imposing.. tall and massive and protecting his woman when she needs it (even if in reality Beckett could kick his ass ten times to Sunday ) and it is just a beautiful picture.

Amazing episode and the promo for next week was just so funny.. it will be a good season!

Castle's back baby!

Loved it, and so glad it's back. I'm surprised the file didn't get more burned up in the explosion, but it was necessary.So glad the show is back!

Re: Castle Season 5 (including Spoilers)

I dont think Becket is in any real power position though. Both Maddox and Smith are dead, whomever killed Smith is still at large and the senator will take his time killing becket. All it has to be is an incident at work and the senator is in the clear.

Becket may now be in a position of no power what-so-ever as all her cards are out on the table and in reality she has none.
