Castle Review: May Fortune Guide Your Journey

by at . Comments

There are several reasons to love Castle.

You get the detective business, but it’s lighthearted. There are jokes and romances that other cop shows lack. In reality, Castle is one of a kind. And "The Final Frontier” was another hour of television that proved why. No other series could have pulled this off.

The Team Goes Sci-fi

Supernova Con. The weekly case took place at a sci-fi/comic book convention. A woman is murdered after working to bring back a canceled show by providing fan experiences. Not only did the case bring about some funny characters, but it was the ultimate nod to Firefly. 

Spacecraft crew fighting to survive? Check. Canceled after one season? Check. Mention of Joss Whedon? Check.

This was pretty much awesome. What made it even better was Beckett’s long standing obsession with the show. Did you see the picture of her dressed up as Lt. Chloe? Hot. Speaking of hot: Hello, Alexis!

Gabriel Winters: You Are The Man. We must give a shout out to Ed Quinn, who rocked as a Nebula 9 character. He was hilarious and provided one solid one-liner after another. (Check them out in our Castle Quotes section.)

Caskett Carries On. These two characters have developed such a fun relationship. Work and play has to be the best combination. It feels natural and is seriously enjoyable to watch. Was anyone else surprised at the fact that no one mentioned their relationship, considering they just found out? A little odd.

Beckett’s request to watch a Nebula 9 marathon with Castle in exchange for dressing up in her costume was great. How could you not adore this character even more after she showed those amazing legs up to her mask? 

Andrew Marlowe, week after week you continue to make this show so much fun.

Overall, a pretty fun episode - especially if you are a fanboy/girl, costume wearing comic book geek like most of us. Check back later this week for the Castle Round Table and don’t forget to hit up the comments to let us know what you thought of “The Final Frontier.”

Until next time Castle fans, remember: May fortune guide your journey.

Every week I think "Can this show get any better?
" and then it does. Hilarious in parts this episode, but who would have thought Beckett would be the uber-fan? I watch TV for entertainment along with some brain stimulation and this show just rocks it. It even satisfies my secret sappy side, the relationships are all so loving and/or supportive. Just keep doing what you've been doing, I'll be happy.

Great episode - love this show. I am just catching up on the last few episodes and noticed in the episode in the Hamptons that Stana looked a little heavier through the hips than I remember in prior seasons. I though maybe she just gained a little bit of weight but after seeing other comments here, maybe she is pregnant. Guess we'll see!

Star Trek. Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. Battlestar Galactica (the '70s one AND the new one). Firefly. Farscape Now, Nebula 9. I half-expect the producers to greenlight the series for SyFy to help promote Castle!

CASKETT frustration - the final nail...the last scene...seriously....:(
EXCELLENT DIRECTOR - THE SET - OUT OF THIS WORLD....THE PERFECT LAST FRONTIER
THE ACTORS - AMAZING - THEY ALWAYS DELIVER NO MATTER WHAT.
THE WRITER... :( - WE NEED TERRI & ANDREW FOR BETTER CASKETT MOMENTS
"Look at my life. My dreams come true.." the only line that glowed & delivered awwwww - by CASTLE...if it refers to where he is with BECKET ;)
Stana has looked "a wee bit preggie" - not fat - with what she wore in this episode...teaser for viewers??? Maybe.
CASKETT FRUSTRATION - SERIOUSLY - MR. MARLOWE...remember..."THEY ARE IN IT TO WIN IT..." ALWAYS

Loved the show. You need to change the banner. Kate has very long hair now.

I loved last night's show. Have you ever tried to tell someone about "Castle" who has never seen it? Me: It's a cop show. Husband: I don't want to watch another cop show. Me: But it's funny. Husband: Is it a comedy? I'll watch a 1/2 hour sitcom. Me: Well, no, it is not a comedy and it is an hour long. Husband: I don't understand! It's not a cop drama and it's not a sitcom? Me: Well, I guess it's a dramedy. But it's a 5-star show!

Loved the psrt where Castle has fired the laser weapon and is suddenly all concernedabout 'protection'.

I adore this show. Castle makes my Monday night complete. The pairing of Castle and Kate has made the show even more fun to watch. This sci fi show made me think of Star Trek and Capt Kirk. My only problem is I guessed the killer early into the show, but just watching it was fun, fun, fun.

This show just keeps improving! Absolutely superb this week, with all the scifi references. And the entire Caskett relationship grows with each episode.
