Castle > Castle Season 5 to Bring Back the Fun, Creator Says > Comments Page 2
Continued: ...fans. But beyond “Castkett” the writing has often been lazy and unambitious with lame and predictable murder cases, the talents of the supporting cast often wasted with maybe a little bone thrown to one or two of them along the way (no wonder they’re often chopping at the bit to do other projects during the hiatus), with so-so directing and bad editing of many episodes. Even the physical look of the show is awful – poorly lit and claustrophobic - the DOP and his entire crew should be fired. And *don’t even* get me started about continuity! Marlowe doesn’t know the meaning of the word! I really hope he reads this. I pray that he reads this.
*Assuming* “Castle” is renewed. Note: ABC still hasn’t made an official announcement and I’ve been around long enough and seen enough stupid moves by TV executives to know that no one, not even Marlowe, should automatically assume ABC is renewing “Castle” – especially in this economy. Having said that, the problem isn’t the darker more dramatic mood of “Castle” this season but how it was executed. In past seasons “Castle” has hit the dramatic episodes out the part just as well as the funny ones. With one or two exceptions that just didn’t happen this year with either the funny or dramatic episodes. This whole freak’n season has felt off and the worst of the four creatively. It’s like they just ran out steam at the end of season three and never got their groove back. Marlowe needs to quit sugar coating things and own up to the fact that he screwed up. His season four vision of the Castle/Beckett relationship has failed miserably and has turn away man
This season has been noticeably weaker than seasons 2 and 3. Season 3 was in many ways a reprise of season 2, so this isn't a minor beef.
It's getting harder to ship Caskett. Kate once again makes a move only because she's afraid of losing him entirely. Castle, once again, gives up and goes from Serious Brunette Mode (Kate, Sophia, Alyssa Milano's character) to Casual Blonde Mode. Five years later, and he's STILL chasing her? And she's STILL playfully shooting him down? Maybe they really shouldn't be together after all.
The cases are still quirky and fun, but without Castle/Beckett to have fun solving them, even the Little Red Riding Hood case became a drag. Nathan's weight and haggard appearance hasn't helped. Go watch Flowers for Your Grave and then a season 4 ep and you'll see what I mean. The Beckett's mom case has gotten so big that it's silly at this point. What possible resolution could they have that satisfies?
I love Adam Baldwin. I hope (but doubt) that we'll see
After reading this particular posting, it has muted my initial anger last night from the "bait-and-switch" ABC pulled on me last night. See, by having the channel on for the first few minutes, the powers that be get to play a game of "See, we drew XX number of viewers on Monday night" when the truth is, many of my friends did exactly what I did -- TURNED THAT @*&# OFF! I liked "Scandal"...when I saw it on Thursday.
This proves one thing: It's not Marlowe & Co. who don't respect the fans of the show; it's the network!
This just made my day so much better! I feel like a weight has been lifted! I cant wait to see the happy side of Castle and Beckett, i miss it so much! And hopefully see some mire Lanie, Espo and Ryan!
As far as Castle and Beckett are together I am all ON for Castle .. Be it 10th season .. LOL.
Here in the states ABC reran the premiere of Scandal. I don't think they were happy with the way it performed last Thursday so they wanted to give it a chance to gain more of an audience before the 2nd episode this Thursday. Personally, I would have gladly watched Kill Shot or The Mistress Always Spanks Twice. Consider yourself lucky.
Scratch my previous comment - only we Canadians (like Mr Fillion and Ms Katic) get to see Castle tonight LOL. Our network still played it.
@David - agreed. The scheduled rerun tonight was Kill Shot from this season, but instead they replayed "The Mistress Always Spanks Twice"...that's season TWO!! I think they're trying to remind us of how fun the show can be.
yeah probably the howls of outrage from the fans triggered this press release. So, they know how each other feels but does that actually mean any movement on the Caskett front? I doubt it. they are going to string that out for as long as possible IMO
I'm absolutely about more fun and definitely approve of being naughty (Stana's recent comments)
So we'll see :)
Now if someone can have a AD (accidental discharge) and shoot the Captain in the head keeping the Captain in a permanent coma I'll be happy. (note disclaimer meaning the character, not the actual person)
All that being said these actors have done a great job in difficult circumstances. More fun will be refreshing.
Thank goodness. That news made my day. May even make all of this crazy angst worth it. I just wish I could fast forward to the season finale to see what happens.
Thank you...really, that's all I needed to know.
Andrew Marlowe Are a genius. thank you very much for the information
