And there will be the great interactions when the she's read the book based on her...

Would they have to change the premise up after a while if the show is a hit? An author doesn't need to be tagging around cops for five years and 100 cases for research.

One could only wish that would become a problem for the writers.

I watch for stana katic. There's not a single shot where she isn't drop dead gorgeous. Even if there was a camera shot from the back of head she'd still be hot.
really? i find her kinda revolting to look at personally

I'm still enjoying it and hope it gets a full season.

I also like the daughter and am enjoying the mother as well.

The interaction of Castle and the cop is old fashion fun, classy screwball comedy type stuff...if they can keep it up, got potential.

Re: Castle: "Nanny McDead" 3/16 - Grading & Discussion

I can't say anough about this show. It's terrific, which means my cynical side says it will get canned, haha.

I love the flirting between Castle and Stana Kanic's cop character. I hope the show goes deeper into her character to show that she can be emotionally vulnerable too. I think we'd all like to see a softer side, lol.

I have to admit, I thought tonight's episode was your typical crime plot, but it had a good twist.

I also think the number of side characters (the 2 other male detectives, the captain and the medical examiner/criminologist) are a good mix.

But the best is how the show incorporates Castle's daughter and mother in a small way to help him solve each crime.

Re: Castle: "Nanny McDead" 3/16 - Grading & Discussion

Well the plots so far aren't very complicated, in last weeks episode and this episode I figured out what was going on pretty early. That said, this show is entertaining because of Fillion, without him I wouldn't even give it a second thought. However, after seeing both episodes, I think I'll give it a go, might as well. I do hope for Fillions sake the show doesn't get cancelled, he deserves to have a steady job cause he's a good actor, and I'd hate for him to go through two series now that are cancelled.

Lindley in last weeks thread said that this series feels more "Jossy" than Dollhouse does, and I agree with that. Just something about this show that makes it feel that way I guess. This show is more entertaining than Dollhouse at any rate. Normally I wouldn't be interested in this type of show, but with Fillion, I'll watch it when I can.

^ If this ends up canceled, it would be three series for Fillion. First there was Firefly in 2002, then Drive in 2007. Castle seems fairly steady so far, though, and I thought this episode was an improvement over last week's, so hopefully it'll stick around for a while.

I stand corrected, I don't want it canceled, I hope they give it a chance.

The mother is seriously channeling a Agnes Moorhead vibe! She looks like Endora!

Mom was Greg's mom on Dahrma and Greg.

^ I remember her primarily as a regular on "Falcon Crest" eons ago, but I've seen her pop up now and again in stuff.

Susan Sullivan was on "Dharma and Greg"...I meant Castle's mom, not the daughter's.
