Castle > Castle Review: "To Love and Die in L.A." > Comments Page 2
This was a great episode. Suspence, mystery, comedy (loved Montgomery asking who lies worse, Ryan or Esposito, and Esposito nodding at Ryan), and the Castle/Beckett interactions were just right. He's her back-up, someone who will stop her from killing the guy who killed Royce, and they are moving together at the right pace now.
Just about as perfect an hour of escapist TV as I could ask for.
Let the romance happen........please!!!!
Amazing episode. Enough said :)
Truly love this show. This episode? Not so much.
Quantity over Quality
Seemed like they rushed production and squeezed as much in as they could. Although could be intentional given the tight (was it 3 days?) time frame KB had to work with.
Will they/Wont they
50 something episodes, 7 people telling KB what she already knows (does she really do things with other people's coaxing or with their approval?) -- and the light is still yellow.
Where is the guy with the punchy one-liners we grew to love? The one who could easily self-profess to be half man/half amazing? I know people evolve and grow as experiences and circumstances change -- totally get that. Maybe just didn't get *that* guy last night.
Still love the show -- not one of the best ep's ever.
OK, Patty. You left your 'one cent worth', now pick up your toys and go home. Castle rocks! TiVo H5O- I do.
Best episode this year !
Was fun to watch theses actors working on their own studio lot! What a fantastic ending...
One thing that struck me is that it does make sense for Castle to be honest without pushing, so he does leave the room. She really is a mystery to him. He isn't just 'in love' with Beckett, it's that she's amazing to him. He's used to being charming and playful - a match for any woman he's gone after, and that's brought him to the attention of a manipulative sort of woman in the past. Kate is different - she's someone who inspires him as a person, not as a writer. She is respects him too, and I think that also comes as a shock to him, that she of all people, takes him seriously. So he treads so lightly around this stuff - that's what he was going to tell her when he tried to call her back as she was leaving the room. It's that 'always' connection they have. Euuu now I really sound like a shipper! But that's what this show does, with its writing and its fine performances. It should be dopey, but it isn't.
I really enjoyed this episode and felt it was a great way to advance their relationship. They are taking it slow, but it is moving along which is nice. You can't have a storyline that will drag on forever. It gets old and boring. The Office/Friends shows are an example that ppl can get together on a show and still stay popular when the writing is well done. This show has already shown its not a one trick pony, lots of layers to develop. Like Castle, still lots of layers to her left. She may be a smart serious cop, but she *did* have a life before and seems very well balanced to have a quirkier side to her. Not sure how much Josh is going to be in picture, he's never around and there is alot more to her life that Castle is away of and Josh is not.
NOT looking forward to the end of this season. Dreading the events to come.....
"Maybe him telling her what she has with Castle is real will send this couple in the right direction."
Yeah right. A definite series killer. Once the 2 main characters hook up, it's over. Then you vultures can move on to the next new series to kill. When will you ever learn.
I live for Monday nights at l0 pm. This show is one of the best that ABC has and far outranks Hawaii 5/o for mystery, intrigue and romance lightly presented. I hope it continues for seasons to come. Anyone who doesn't like it doesn't have to watch. Change the channel.
Patty, thank you anyway for wasting your time and leaving your nasty and totally tasteless comments... Only made me realize how much Castle and ABC is beating up the competition...
Hotel room scene was heart stopping... No words can describe exactly how I feel... :-)
I do hope when Beckett finally chose to open the door, she realized she does not love Dr. Josh anymore or if she has forgotten about him, I totally forgive her...
This Castle episode blew me away. There were so many aspects that were such a departure from almost every other episode and that heightened an already amazing show! I am a completely dedicated "shipper" and am beyond infatuated with the beautiful relationship that has been developing for the incomparable Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) and equally enamoring Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion).
I have been hoping, since the two-part episode (Setup and Countdown), that there would be a very Castle/Beckett centric episode, allowing them to address each other more intimately. I must say, I was rewarded for my patience. I was on the edge of my seat during the hotel scene where Castle admits his feelings toward Beckett and she so adeptly draws us in with her telling reactions, written all over her face. I wanted to see a kiss happen, in the worst way, as the tension was almost too much to bear. As the rest of the scene played out I felt as though they were finally on the same page with their emotion
All right I confess I've watched the latest episode where Stana Katic gets out of the swimming pool 45 times. If she isn't the most drop dead gorgeous actress on TV I can't imagine who's more beautiful. She ROCKS.
This was a great episode!
The LA cops seemed to take Castle in stride in a way the NY cops can't, commenting about how it must be nice traveling with a best selling author. And yet the cops from both cities were cops in that kind of brotherhood, like how they got information out of the driver (and wasn't it a nice twist that the phone rang just in time to save her partners!) and the last confrontation between Beckett and Ganz.
@Patti - ABC and CBS are competitors...why would it be smart for ABC to cancel the show that is consistently beating CBS in the ratings? I like Hawaii Five 0 as well, but not as much as Castle. Five 0 is more of an action-driven drama, Castle more murder-mystery/suspense/relationship driven. I watch Five 0 on the weekend. Maybe CBS will change the time slot...
Anyway, yeah this ep was brilliant. I love the layering AM does - not just within an episode, but the way they build on each other.
I loved this episode! This is just me but this was one of my favotites. =]
This show was one for the shippers for sure. Now that Castle has basically laid his cards on the table, there is only Beckett - who got that little nudge from Royce at the end. As a fan of the show - and to be one of those you have to buy in to the natural chemistry between the two leads - I 'want' them to get together, but I'm sort of like Beckett is on this score: What does that mean? As a writer, and watcher, it can easily go badly - but I really have faith in Andrew Marlowe's ability to stay ahead of us, and keep us invested and amused. As for the 'bathing suit' entrance by Stana Katic: Was it gratuitious? Of course - except she totally bought it - the bad guy, Ganz? (isn't that the name of the bad guy James Remar played in the original '48 Hours' - a movie about a rogue cop and a rogue prisoner?) I think it was a play on the fact that she has played a Bond girl, and Ganz looked a lot like Daniel Craig in those souped up glasses. And later when she pokes him - it was a real
i think the show was more than awesome and if u don't have a funny bone and a romance bone in your system you definitely do not deserve to criticize a show like that and god why do you even care to leave a comment here if you were so bothered with the show.
contradicting isn't it.
I think the show was stupid and boring!!!! I changed the channel to Hawaii Five 0 which was much more exciting, had a more interesting plot, and the actors and characters are superior! You can't beat the scenery and the music either!
If ABC were smart, it would cancel Castle and replace it with a cooler and more exciting show.
I liked it. I thought that they played the doors opening and closing in the hotel room just right. If as they say there is a death coming to end the season, they do not want to hijack the fans' attention with a premature resolution to the upcoming deeper relationship between Beckett and Castle.
Wouldn't it be great to have a concierge like that one at our service? I would love it.
I believe the term is "rogue".
