I really didn't get a good look either, I'm just guessing.

I wasn't paying close enough attention to try and identify a particular make and model, but it definitely looked like a top-loader.

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

Like others have said, I found it fun but ludicrous. Lanie looked pretty good as Foxy Cleopatra.

Also, why was Jon Polito's character dancing around with the cops at the end of the episode instead of, ohh, under arrest for the attempted murder of the club owner, or at least the assault on his bodyguard?
Yeah, he bashed that guy pretty good. Maybe he was out on bail??

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

I didn't finish this episode. I love their funnier episodes, but those are generally very character driven, this... this is was like a plot out of a Vince Vaughn/Owen Wilson comedy.

It was just to stupid to continue watching.

This season has been a bit sketchy at times. Which is disappointing. Last season was a great shot in the arm for the show... but this year... meh.

Guess this year's episodes have been like Windows... one season is good, the next not so much . That sucks .

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

Sorry to double post...

Just saw most of tonight's episode... not too impressed by it either. Another middling one.



Hope next week's episode will be better plot wise. This one just seemed to be weak.

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

Castle has been cruising along the whole season now, it is a long way from the atmosphere and fun of seasons 1-4.

As anyone can guess by my avatar i'm a huge Castle fan but at this point of the show i wouldn't get upset at cancellation or the show being tied up and finished.

Somehow there is no spark anymore, the main storyline hasn't been touched in ages and it's become a generic procedural of the week.

If a new viewer would tune in today i hardly expect them to become a fan of the show, with seasons 1-4 it would surprise me if they didn't.

Nice to see Claudia Christian again, though she only got one scene. Also amusing to see Star-Crossed's Jesse Luken for the second time in one night (he was the guy who helped the victim break into the law office).

Re: Castle - Season 6 Discussion & Spoilers

It was a fine episode. Better than last week's unwatchable. The story itself was rote... lets go ask this person some questions, and then ask the person that person tells us to talk to... blah blah, rinse repeat. Their structure was very very apparent in this one.

But, I did like the whole Ryan/Javi battle for best man. While not great, this is what I like about the show, the humor between the cast members... the banter... it's grounded and feels real in the context of the show. Unlike last week's stupidity.

But, yeah... not a great episode. I wouldn't mind if it ended this year. Has it been picked up?

Yea it was better than some. Will be rewatching it though to see it in its entirety. My dear local ABC channel decided to interrupt for a commercial during part of it . Yea that was funny, those two are cards. And the banter was top notch from them along with the humor.

How do you view about there being no spark? Do you mean in the writing?

Agreed. I'm really losing interest in this show, which is a shame since I loved it so much, but it's just not interesting anymore. They either need to get new writers with a fresh perspective, or pack it in.
I fell asleep during the first act, and I really have no interest in going back and watching it. Maybe over the weekend.

Well, at least Claudia Christian was alive for her guest shot, as opposed to Pat Tallman.

I sure wish they'd use Molly more.

Both.. writing has become mediocre and i especially noticed it in the most recent episode.

They start the case, collect evidence and then like a conveyor belt people line up to provide new information (especially Javi and Ryan). Now it was like this since the beginning but for some reason it bothered me more than usual. I didn't even pay attention to the case at all and haven't watched parts of the case so i can't even tell you who all the involved people are, what their relation to the case was and why he got killed and i don't care at all.

Now every episode can't be a landmark episode such as the season 3 and season 4 finales, the 3XK episodes and some others but i believe the show got too comfortable and low key. Nothing surprises anymore and the show follows a (rather boring) formula:

Opening murder scene - Scene from the private life of Castle and Beckett - interruption because of the new case - case handling (maybe with 1-2 scenes of a more private nature) - case closure - private scene Castle/Beckett

It's become a stale formula and not very interesting in the long run. For me the "blame" is to be found with the writing, certainly not the actors who are as capable, funny and loveable as the always are.

I will stick with the show until its finale but it's a shadow of what it once was.

That outfit Becket was wearing - tan equestrian jacket with a man's shirt and tie - was hideous to the point of distraction. I don't think I even caught what was going on in the plot while she was wearing that, I just kept wondering why anyone would dress like that.

FPAlpha I feel the same way about BONES and starting to feel that way about CASTLE too now.
