Castle > Castle Review: Tomorrow's Never Promised > Comments Page 4
I love this show but this week was an extra bonus. When did I start loving blond men so much. Thats right it was the first time I saw Alexander Skarsgård on True Blood. Now there is Brett Tucker to add to the list.
Ditto on the relationship arc.. it's BORING and juvenile. It's time to kill it off or get them to jump in bed. Since they're not going to jump in bed - kill it off.
Oh, for TV Fanatic - change the banner on top. Kate hasn't had long hair for a long while.
I love Castle. Having said that, it's time for the "shades of high school" to end. Either get them together or separate them. Or as Jossie said, "poop or get off the pot". It is getting tedious to watch this interaction between Kate and Rick and the facial and eye expressions.
The writers need to wake up and smell the roses. Listen to the fan base. We are telling you to move this relationship along or we will leave the show.
I missed Martha as I would've like to hear what she though about Castle's obvious attempts at trying to move on from Beckett. Also, I wasn't as keen on Colin Hunt as the reviewer was....he was ok as a guest star but I don;t feel the need to see him again....I would've much preferred to of seen Jonathan Cake in the role.
I do think that Caskett relationship will come to a head to finish the season whether it will result in them getting together or pushing them apart remains to be seen....I would be surprised to see them admit their feelings towards each other only for Kate to find out about Castle investigating he mother's case behind her back....yes he's doing it to save her life but Beckett's mum has always been her trigger and she isn't going to be happy when she finds out.
To the people who say Castle's "reverted" to his old self - I beg to differ. The OLD Castle wouldn't have 4 dates in three days with the SAME woman. He would have played the field.
And he's not intentionally trying to hurt Beckett, because he doesn't know she loves him. As far as he believes, she lied to avoid the embarrassment of telling him that his feelings are unrequited.
As for his secret - they're not the same. HE's keeping a secret to save her life!! She lied to protect herself. Totally different scenarios.
“Both characters have now put their feelings out there. “
They have? What show have you been watching?! The whole reason they're in the situation they're in now is because they don't talk to each other!
“This show is driven by the facial expressions and emotions performed by these great actors.”
Seriously, what show have you been watching?! - because for this entire season the lighting and DOP has been so incredibly dark and terrible that half the time you can’t see the actor’s faces let alone the emotions going across them.
Are you being paid by ABC and or the "Castle" producers?
how come you wrote in the review no one missed martha and alexis i did they are good in this show.
So they're really going to do this? They're really going to drag out this whole relationship thing with implausible misunderstandings and goofy timing?
Okay, fine -- as NoHassle says, that's their job. In a way. But as Josie points out, there is good potential story material for after they get together, too. And if there isn't, then the writers shouldn't have moved it along as they have.
And what's with making Castle into a dork? Why is he suddenly uninterested in the cases? He decided to stay on, despite the fact that he believes Beckett doesn't love him, because he feels like he's doing something important. So why blow off a case for a lunch appointment? And really -- in what world would he (or anyone outside of a very bad sitcom) come up with a plan to get fingerprints that involved rappelling down the side of a building with a contortionist in a gym bag!
Damn! I like Castle, and I'm really happy that Fillion has this show (unless, of course, they put him ba
Come-on writers. At least a few soulful kisses or hugs would be in order about now. Its getting really old wanting more interaction between Beckett and Castle. The're two adults, not kids. Make it believable. Enough waiting for some romantic interaction. Enough puppy-dog looks!! Round two. bring it on!!
PAH!!! Writers are the bane of a good shows existence! They get into a "string-it-along" rut and just stop thinking. The potential storylines for AFTER these two get together is phenomenal but the writers just aren't seeing it. I am going to be DONE with this series if the writers don't poop or get off the pot with this relationship. If the writers give still ANOTHER "cliffhanger" season ender, I won't even tune in to see the 1st episode of next season. The actors are a great ensemble team and the writers are simply not using them OR their own brains to grow this show.
good episode but the british accent of the detective was really bad and although it looked bad for caskette fans good things are coming so just take it easy
Thought the british guy would be involved in the murder. It was stupid how he came into the picture. Also I am getting tired of the playing around with Beckette and Castle. You are making a soap opera out of it. I love the show but I ask you don't do that. Crap or get off of the pot....
And you know what Andrew Marlowe? I'm fine with that. But when the inevitable histrionics start up, when each of them come out with their feelings - again - probably angry over 'secrets' - I hope I can watch them act their way through their mutual adolescence with a straight face. I am the most patient viewer of this show, but even I have to draw a line somewhere. Get off the stick, you two! No more playing around.
Lanie tells Beckett that "he's crazy for you," that he's not the guy with a girl on each arm, and this is news? Did she or did she not 'remember everything' from the Season 3 finale where Castle told her he loved her? That's not my only quibble – there was having to slice and dice the Aussie-London East End accent as well. It made it even harder to suspend belief than usual for Castle. The best part of this whole show was in the tease: I thought Lanie did a great job of 'hanging a lamp on it' - writer-speak for summing up the Caskett relationship thread. Thanks to her, we now know that even Kate doesn't have a real answer for her commitment phobia, other than the possible embarrassment of being turned down or failing. I was hoping that this season, with Worf the Shrink on board, the writers would dredge up some deep-seated emotional trauma, but no. Kate Beckett is a wimp and a tease. That's it.
And you know what Andrew Marlowe? I'm fine with that. But when the inevitabl
Great writing, outstanding performances, and compelling narratives -- that's why I watch.
I wanted to add that, while both Castle and Beckett are behaving as junior-high schoolers (why don't they just pass each other a note that asks "Do you like me, or do you LIKE me like me?), I realize that they both are emotionally immature. Most of people's frustration with the "let's DO this already" stems from the fact that people Caskett's age don't act like this for four years! For all of Beckett's professionalism and passion for her job, and Castle's talent for analysis and attentiveness towards his daughter (not to mention being a great "mama's boy"), neither have a clue as to how to grow and sustain a relationship. That's the fun to me: watching them develop emotionally BECAUSE they know they have something special, while developing the nerve to express the desire to explore this with one another. It's a fascinating thing to watch this...something you don't find on network television done THIS well! Great writing, outstanding performances, and compelling narratives -- that
It's time to get the party started. I'm not saying that Castle & Beckett have to go all the way, but I am saying it's time to shift the relationship into another gear. At least have them tell each other how they feel and have a chance at a real romantic relationship.
If the writers do not let them get together after all this time I am definitely done with the show. That's the best part, waiting for them to get together and then when they do waiting to see if the relationship will work. Quit dangling it in front of our noses, PLEASE make something happen soon.
First, let me say to all those who are frustrated with Andrew Marlowe and Co. for dragging out this soap-opera-as-crime-procedural love story: THAT'S THEIR JOB. To get to 100 episodes, they have to string the drama along to keep us watching week to week. To that I say, congratulations.
The one glitch in this standard operating procedure? We as fans are clearly weary of the "dance" that's been going on for so long. Would I enjoy this show if Castle and Beckett never got together? Not nearly as much...but I think the quirkiness of the cases would still draw some interest. The Caskett intimate pairing is inevitable, and everyone knows it. I just hope the series' caretakers realizes that they're essentially run out of stringing-along time.
I get the dance I have put up with the dance but it is time for the dance to end......or at least work on ending without reverting back to the way things were at the end of the season that saw Castle get together with one of his exes and Beckett in a relationship with someone(cannot even recall who)and we had to spend a few episodes putting the team back together in a manner of speaking.....been there done that do not care to do it again. They can get closer without blowing the great chemistry they all have together.....Please Castle writers make it happen.
Brett Tucker doesn't get naked nearly often enough in Spartacus, so don't rush if it's just him you're after. I liked the character though (but must point out that Scotland Yard is HQ for the London Metropolitan Police and doesn't really warrant the McScotland tag) though the accent was straight out of the same voice coaching school that Dick Van Dyke attended for Mary Poppins! Lol.
I agree with commenters who have said that Beckett can't have failed to notice the changes in Castle - after all they've been together a few years (seasons) now and gone through a whole lot together. Why would you carry on allowing a guy to feel like that and not give him either the go-ahead or put him down gently? I agree that she has become something of almost a cartoon - no one with any sensitivity would behave in front of Castle the way she has been. And I don't think Castle would have reverted to the 'bimbo' stage straight away like that. He's moved on. He's in pain. And he's old enough to know that
The "dance" is getting boring. How long do the writers plan on dragging it out? There were so many missed opportunities for Caskett in this season to ermm...take their relationship to the next level but sadly, we're all stuck in suspended animation.
Kate heard Castle's declaration but she was a mess. I understand her hesistancy in bringing Castle to her world...she's obsessed with her mom's murder and she was left emotionally scarred. Ok, she lied by omisssion but that doesn't make her wrong. It's her life and it's her choice. What I do not understand is why Castle devolved to who he was back at season 1&2. This is his way of coping with "rejection?" If I were Kate, seriously, I'd just pass on Castle.
There are never bad episodes of Castle! It's time for Rick and Kate to get together. I don't think it will ruin anything. I think that it will add more twists and turns. I just wish we could see Nathan Fillion in his Firefly outfit again...
busybee90us2003 - totally agree. That accent was a failure. As an Australian who lives with an Englishwoman, we both cringed throughout the whole episode - kinda ruining it for us. I kept hoping he would be exposed as a fake which could explain how atrocious it was!
Lanie told Kate just the way she sees it.. loved thier time they had together to talk. I was disapointed with the childishness written into the charactors - especially Castle, running off with his new arm candy and so uninvolved in the case, which is unlike him from 4 yrs of the series. Beckett, Ryan, and Esposito can't see that.. and not ask, what's up with Castle?
He acted like a complete jerk, so (Nathan) did a good performance... its pretty obvious, he's distancing himself, and going out of the picture. I didn't even miss no camera time with Martha, or Alexis in the episode.
They better get the writing better or they are already putting in the nails in the lid to thier Caskett, (pun) this season, there won't be much of a season five to want to watch.
