Alas, Castle doesn't go on a drug-fueled Scorsesian romp through Wall Street in “The Greater Good.” But it does introduce Gates’ imposing sister, as well as the notion that Castle could invite Stephen King to the wedding. We’d watch that. The Players: Director: Holly Dare Writer: David Grae Cast:...

Saying “This is heaven” to kick off an episode of Castle is never a good sign. Instead of a day in pajamas, “In The Belly Of The Beast” forces Beckett to spend a day undercover as a drug ring’s assassin. The Players Director: Rob Bowman Writers: Andrew W. Marlowe & David Amann Cast: Nathan Fillion,...

castle episode 16 s06 stana katic fillion nypd
Castle paints itself into a juicy corner when three people confess to the same crime, a murder they recall taking place in the titular “Room 147.” But the bedlam at work doesn’t extend to the home front, with Beckett and Alexis sorting each other out nicely. The Players: Director: Bill Roe Writer: Adam...

Castle: Smells Like Teen Spirit: Season 6 Episode 15 - TV Review

castle kate prom season 6 ep15
Castle mixes wedding-themed mystery with a seemingly genuine case of Carrie telekinesis. But despite the writers’ suggestion, neither one of “Smells Like Teen Spirit”’s answers has to do with Nirvana. The Players: Director: Kevin Hooks Writers: Chad Gomez Creasey & Dara Resnik...

Castle s06 ep13 Castle Beckett gossip
A stormy celebrity ends up dead, or maybe not so dead in this week’s “Limelight.” Dodging the relentless paparazzi flashbulbs is bad enough for our Castle detectives, but Richard has to write a letter of recommendation for Pi. For Pi. The Players Director: Bill Roe Writers: Rob Hanning Cast:...

Castle: Under Fire: Season 6 Episode 11 - TV Review

Published by

Castle Season 6 Episode 11 Ryan Esposito Fire
Castle made a clever move, returning with an episode that makes good on the title “Under Fire.” Can Esposito and Ryan escape a conflagration by relighting the forges of Erebor and smelting a giant dwarf statue? Or maybe they’re just hoping for the fire department to rescue them?

Castle: The Disciple: Season 6 Episode 9 - TV Review

Published by

catle ep 9 NYPD he's back
Castle revisits old enemies (or does it?!) week when victims begin to look eerily identical to members of the homicide team. Even if the “Disciple” of the EX3 killer is behind the murders and not EX3 himself, the show makes a disquieting case for them as a real antagonist for Richard.

Castle: Get A Clue: Season 6 Episode 6 - TV Review

Published by

castle beckett - season 6 ep 3 - tomb raiders
After name-checking The Da Vinci Code and National Treasure, Castle takes its historical mystery sendoff in the proper direction: Raiders of the Lost Ark. “Get A Clue” has ancient treasure, a masked man with a saber and an awkward fruitarian. Guess which one Castle is the least excited...

Castle: Time Will Tell: Season 6 Episode 5 - TV Review

Published by

castle-season 6 ep5-richard sonic screwdriver
A timey-whimey murder mystery? Yes, please. “Time Will Tell” is easily the most energetic episode of Castle so far this season. It may be a harbinger of an apocalyptic future in which Richard writes serious literature. Or so says the ‘time-traveler’ Beckett finds at the crime scene.

“Number One Fan” hits the reset button on Castle — if only for a day. A hostage-taker refuses to talk to anyone but Richard, and subsequently demands he prove her innocence in her boyfriend’s murder. So while the girl hangs out with a handgun and three trapped civilians, Castle and Beckett are on the case.

Castle: Need To Know: Season 6 Episode 3 - TV Review

Published by

castle-tv-review-s6
This week, Castle pivots from D.C. to New York. In “Need To Know,” Beckett and McCord crash NYPD’s investigation of the appropriately dramatic death of a former sitcom star. The episode also blithely steps into a world where Ryan and Esposito are fanboys of a fake Boy Meets World/Family Matter mash-up.

Castle: Dreamworld: Season 6 Episode 2 - TV Review

Published by

Castle Ep 2 Katic Fillion Dreamworld
Picking up where the premiere left off, “Dreamworld,” sets the clock on Castle himself. Richard has only hours to live because of exposure to a secret military toxin (although he's conveniently asymptomatic). Unfortunately, their main lead on an antidote keeled over from the same poison. Castle and Beckett handle the setback with startling professionalism, and of course it’s a treat to...

Castle: Valkyrie: Episode 1 Season 6 - TV Review

Published by

castle-valkyrie
Castle picked up right where it left off. In "Valkyrie," Beckett said yes and yes to both Castle and her dream job. Still, a long distance relationship has its problems, especially if it involves gross breeches of national security, government cover-ups, and overly complex yet predictable plots. Thank goodness Lisa...

Drones: Stana Katic, Nathan Fillion, and Jon Huertas
Castle is all about secrets, surveillance and military strikes in “The Human Factor.”  The episode provides the most technologically-sophisticated cause of death yet—a drone. With no body, no proof and no witnesses, the team must rely on their instincts to guide them.
