'Castle' - 'The Late Shaft' Recap

First of all, 'The Late Shaft?' really? That has to already be a porno,right? If it isn't already, I'm sure it's going to be now. After the endless media scrutiny, and of course after Conan's big news, it's really fun to see a new spin on the Late Night Wars. Things got pretty heated between Conan and Jay, so someone getting killed with balsamic vinegar was really the natural progression of the whole thing.

Also, balsamic vinegar? I watch enough Big Pharma commercials to know about MAO inhibitors, but fermentation? Come on, Internet doctors, help me out. Is this even possible in a parallel universe? And if so, why isn't everybody killing everyone this way all the time? Also, a salad sounds pretty good right now.

Mummy Killer on 'Castle'An ancient mummy on the loose in the streets of New York City? Yes, okay, it does sound like the plot of a 'Scooby-Doo' episode. But it also happens to be the plot of the most recent episode of 'Castle' (Mon., 10PM ET on ABC). Novelist turned crime-fighter Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) investigates the murder of a museum curator, along with his partner Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). And soon, they begin to suspect that something very weird is going on.

Watch the video after the jump.

'Castle' - 'Suicide Squeeze' Recap

Castle - Suicide Squeeze
(S02E15) First of all, those stilettos Beckett had on were awesome. I'm not saying that so much as a girl crush, but as more of a 'Sex and the City' sort of style thing. Her mullet seems to have calmed down a little, and overall, I'm liking her style (though I'm still on the fence about her jacket pictured above). Girlfriends, what say you about the jacket?!

Review: Castle - A Rose for Everafter

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jan 12th 2010 4:30AM
(S02E12) Do you think child stars from the 80s had some sort of secret blood pact that prevents them from aging? I ask because there are a lot of them (whose names aren't "Corey") who look amazingly good. Alyssa Milano guest-starred in this week's episode of Castle, and damn. She doesn't look like she's aged a day in the past decade. It's a little creepy, especially when we see the picture of her and Castle together. Nathan Fillion looks like a big-haired, skinny (albeit adorable) punk, and Alyssa Milano looks exactly the same. She's like Dorian Gray or something.

Review: Castle - One Man's Treasure

Molly C. Quinn as Alexis Castle on ABC's Castle(S02E10) ""A wife and a fiance catfight ... please can we stop for popcorn on the way?" - Castle

Molly C. Quinn is such a cutie. I loved the storyline this week where she volunteers to categorize evidence, and in doing so, uses her skills to help return someone's precious "brag book" to them. She takes after her dad in the "big heart" department.

Castle is good about that. They could have made Richard Castle as a roguish playboy who chases women and loves a good time, and while he's got some of that in him (see above quote), he's also a dedicated family man. The writers are good about the characters that way. Beckett is a hard-nosed detective, but she's also good with people, excelling at giving them bad news in such a way as to soften the blow.

Review: Castle - Vampire Weekend

Castle - Vampire Weekend
(S02E06) Ooh, several Joss Whedon references in the first few minutes, including "space cowboy" and Buffy's vampires. Throw in a reference to Frank Miller, and it's a geeky fantasy paradise. I also got a little of my vampire fix, even if they weren't the real thing. I don't know that Kona's that into vampires, so I'm glad this episode aired on my week to review Castle.

It was the usual whodunnit frolicry, with Castle and Beckett trying to piece together a murder mystery involving vampires, werewolves, and a murder that took place 18 years earlier. And the vampires and werewolves were as close to the real thing as a human can get -- with implanted fur, fang veneers, and a disease that made it impossible to go out in the daytime, lest the person catch on fire. There was even a cemetery and a stake through the heart.

Review: Castle - When the Bough Breaks

by Kona Gallagher, posted Oct 20th 2009 9:12AM
(S02E05) I'm really glad this episode ended the way it did, because I was about to be pissed. Obviously Castle isn't going to stop writing the Nikki Heat books and leave Beckett, so I was expecting him to make some asinine excuse to his book agent about why he couldn't take over the James Bo-- er, a "British secret agent with lots of gadgets" series.

But in the end, the excuse of, "hey, my publishing house is going to just dump sacks with dollar signs printed on the front of them on my doorstep so I can make a Scrooge McDuck-like swimming pool out of gold, so screw that British agent and his gadgets," kind of works for me. However, all things being equal, if Castle had gotten the same offer and he had been following around, say, Esposito instead of Beckett, I feel like maybe the prestige of writing the British spy series may have won out over more gold doubloons for an already-rich Castle.

Castle: Fool Me Once

Castle: Fool Me Once
(S02E04) "A con man isn't just about the money; it's about the game." - Castle

This week's episode of Castle continued the theme of a puzzling whodunit that takes viewers on a little journey to solve the crime. I was kept guessing the whole time, which is one reason I love Castle. The other, of course, is the lovely rat-a-tat banter between Castle and Beckett. Like a classic movie starring Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn.

And it's clear that Beckett is trying hard to hide her intrigue over Castle and his work -- making a date with herself to soak in a sudsy tub, drink wine and read his novel based on her. And then the end scene where he catches her in the bathroom looking for the steamy sex scene in the book. Oh my.

Castle: Inventing the Girl
(S02E02) "What is it about full moons that brings out the crazies?" - Castle to Beckett

That line above exemplifies what I love about Castle. Richard Castle is enjoying the bizarre perps and collars traipsing through the police department; he's eating snacks and having fun, while Kate just rolls her eyes at both him and the people. They're such total opposites -- Beckett so cool and controlled and Castle like a giddy kid -- and I hope they don't mess it up by having them hook up. I was just reading a story in one of the entertainment mags, where Stana Katic says that, too. She doesn't want them to get together because it's so cliche.

Jane After Dark: Five reasons I'm loving Castle

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 27th 2009 3:01PM
Castle - Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion
This week in Jane After Dark, I caught up with season one of Castle. I'm a sucker for fun whodunits, especially when they feature great male and female characters who've perfected the art of the snappy banter. Specifically, here are five reasons why I'm loving Castle:

1. Nathan Fillion is boyishly charming.
I've been a big fan of this Joss Whedon favorite since seeing him in 2005's feature film Serenity. I finally completed that awesome circle by watching Firefly last winter. Fillion has the ability to be goofy one minute and deadly serious the next. In Castle, he plays Richard Castle, a best-selling mystery author who's raising a 15-year-old daughter Alexis (Molly C. Quinn) -- and, in many ways, his free-spirited live-in mother Martha (Susan Sullivan), as well. Having killed off his latest fictional character, Richard found inspiration in NYPD detective Kate Beckett, after being called in to advise on a case. Now they're working as pseudo-partners.

Castle: Deep in Death (season premiere)

castle season premiere
(S02E01) Look, I'm just going to say it up front and get it out of the way: Nathan Fillion is the most charming man on television. All I could think of when I was watching the season premiere was, "wow." Also, how could Beckett resist him? Sure, he went against her express wishes and reopened her mother's case, which brings with it the distinct possibility of opening a Pandora's box of despair and obsession that could ruin her life and career -- but has she seen him smile? Come on.

Ordinarily, I have very little patience for obviously inconsequential tension like we have in this episode with Beckett refusing to partner up with Castle. It's the season premiere -- obviously, she's going to take him back; it's kind of the premise of the show. However, they manage to conclude the storyline in such a way that it doesn't overshadow the rest of the episode, and instead of retarding the pace, it actually ushers in some new character development.

Have you been following the Castle mystery on Twitter?

It all started with an innocent trip to The Hamptons. Fictional fiction writer, Richard Castle, was worried that his daughter hadn't returned from her walk with a new boy. He set off on the beach to look for her, and instead found... a foot.

Castle, ABC's quirky police procedural starring Nathan Fillion, is working overtime to snag viewers. In addition to the release of Heat Wave, an actual novel written by and based upon the fictional characters in the show, "Richard Castle" has also started a Twitter account. While his updates started off innocently enough, with tales of drinks with his neighbor Jerry Seinfeld, things quickly took a darker turn when a severed foot turned up on the beach.

Now, Twitter followers of @WriteRCastle can go along with the writer as he searches for clues, first to the victim's identity, and then, hopefully to the killer. He's been on the case for a little more than a week, and has already turned up some interesting information-- with accompanying pictures.

Nathan Fillion: The TV Squad Interview

by Kona Gallagher, posted Apr 9th 2009 2:10PM

When I was preparing for my Nathan Fillion interview, I knew that I had a big responsibility: people love this guy. I mean love-- in a slightly disturbing way. So I reached out. I went on Facebook and Twitter and asked people what they wanted me to ask him, so I would get the fewest number of Firefly fans pissed off at me as possible. Luckily, the questions submitted were mostly along the lines of, "will he impregnate me?", so I wasn't too worried about not asking something someone was dying to know.

"Hey, I've got a quick question for you: How long do you think this 'internet' fad will really go?" But before I could ask a single question, that's how Nathan Fillion starts our interview. "Um, you know, I think it's on it's way out. I give it a month, maybe two at the most." I could understand where he was coming from. I was just one in a long line of reporters he was talking to today, so he has to keep himself interested somehow. Why not joke around with me about the fall of the internet?
