Castle > Castle Review: Stabbed In The Back > Comments Page 2
Loved, loved, LOVED this episode, both for all the funny moments and the tender ones. Though I agree with all the Firefly fans (I'm a Browncoat myself) that they should have had more interaction between Zoe and Castle/Mal.
I adored that Castle and Gates were both big reality show fans! And I am thrilled that Lanie and Espo were going out again. Those two were meant for each other.
I absolutely LOVE this show. I might be one of few, but I enjoy the episodes with Captain Gates & that character. Someone on this show has to be the stern inforcer among this crew of cops. It's fun to see her enjoy things that it seems such a serious person might not have interest in (her doll collection, reality tv, etc). I think Gates is on to Castle & Beckett too.
Great show but I feel its time for Martha and Alexis to call her Kate. And Kate could slip in a Rick once in a while. But I like them anyway
@sonde Infertility is not as much of a problem, as a lack of patience. Many of us, myself included, understand what Ryan is going through because we have been there, done that. Stud Service on demand is just that. It is not fun, especially if you have to get out of bed and go back to work, but necessary because young couples hear the clock ticking.
I loved the last 10 minutes.. I do beleive that Gates put it together, and realized, it had to be meant for Beckett, the two of them have been working together for 5 yrs, something could be up.. and if they keep it that much a secret, then she knows what is at stake. A great detective, and a smart writer that brings out the best in her. Splitting them up could only cost Gates.
I really do enjoy the serious episodes, like ones with drama to them.. I look forward to next weeks. The closeness of the actors is what endears the show. Lanie looked "wow", and I loved the cleaned out dresser drawer gift. It too reminded me of dating my wife. After a few years, we did much the same.
Its such a shame, I feel as if the producers are held back by ABC on how much they can spend, or how serious they can get, like its an 8 pm show sometimes.. I don't understand why.
why does everyone on tv who is trying to get pregnant now a days has that same gag? and infertility become the norm? forced sex? and EVERYBODY knows your business and the frequency of it. Look around the other channels how many programs are doing the infertility thing....YAWN
I also loved this episode, especially when Gates was telling Castle "I'm a married woman and now I'm going home to MY valentine." It was even funnier that he couldn't tell her that it was all a mistake and the earrings were for Kate. Nathan Fillion is great expressing emotions with just his face, but I must disagree that he is the best actor doing this. Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester on Supernatural) is at least equal to (if not better than) Nathan in using facial expressions and body language to bring fans into the drama or comedy.
I cannot find enough words to ezpress how great Castle was last night. It was one of the best shows yet and the finale with Castle's gift from Kate was precious to say the least. This love affair has made the show even better, which is tough to do.
@ bill The relationship between Castle and Beckett has always been Kate the dominant, Rick the submissive. Of COURSE she ordered him to report to the bed. Castle being such a soft wussy guy most of the time is one of the funny (giggly) things about having the actor who portrayed Malcolm Reynolds, a stone cold killer, play Castle as generally not overly brave. I have even seen him hide behind Kate a time or two.
Yes, I know he shows overwhelming bravery, too. I said, MOST of the time. But he is very submissive to all the women in his life.
I loved it when Castle said "Spoiler Alert". It was so funny
As for those wondering why no interaction/scenes between Gina T. and Nathan, there very well may have been but they got cut. Don’t be surprised if there is a deleted scene or two on the season’s DVD set. Lord knows it’s happen before, look at Jim Beckett. Also, believe it or not the folks in the ABC promotion department rarely watch an episode of a show before editing the promo together. They just cut and paste together tidbits and sound bites they think will entice viewers to tune in. It doesn’t matter they end up being misleading or have you expecting interactions that never actually existed to begin with. That’s why I avoid promos like the plague.
I enjoyed it for the most part but if I’m being honest I have to agree with Lacey and Wilhelmina. It could also just be work-life “seven year itch,” so to speak. Our fabulous cast and crew have been at this for over five years now so a little slump in the spark/chemistry department was bound to happen eventually. Hopefully they will snap out it soon – I’m hoping for at least one more season of this great show. Terri is right would should be glad the demo ratings number was up this week and hopefully will stay above 2.0 for the rest of the season.
I LOVED the episode! The scenes between Gates and Castle were hilarious, I couldn´t stop laughing! And then Ryan always late, Espo and Lanie... but above all, the ending scene, amazing! So sweet and meaningful! For me, an amazing episode. And frankly, I don´t think there´s a lack of chemistry between NF and SK; at least for me it´s still there, just look at the ending scene!
And for next week, wow, I can´t wait... I love some drama and I´ve always loved the two parters in Castle, I´m sure these next 2 episodes will be mind blowing!
I have no doubt that the two parter coming up will be great. But I will not be watching because I find it very difficult to watch any show that includes child abduction. Maybe it is the father in me, but the strain is simply too much for me to take.
It did not surprise me when Beckett started throwing stuff around during her interrogation of Joe. She has done that sort of thing before. However did anyone notice that the final line of dialog to Castle in her bedroom sounded more like a command than a loving offer.
No mention of Gina Torres? Ignoring the fact that she and Nathan Fillion reunited 10 years after Firefly, she still deserves a mention for her wonderful turn as Penelope. She is great at playing strong women like Zoe on Firefly, Jessica on Suits, and Penelope on this episode of Castle. I didn't need a Firefly joke or gag but a little more interaction between the two of them would have been great.
I agree with Lacey that 'something' has been missing for the last few episodes and I think it is the on screen SPARK that existed between Nathan and Stana as Rick and Kate. I don't see that anymore. I am wondering if there is something in either of theiir off screen lives that is troubling them? I hope that whatever the issues are get resolved because the spark between the two of them is what made CASTLE so special.
Loved this episode and found it very funny and sweet. I am not going to complain about anything. Ratings were up and let's all do our part to promote the 2-parter and make the ratings continue to rise. Castle is really the best written and acted show and I love it with all of my heart.
I loved the scenes of Castle's interaction with Gates and him popcorning his way through the reality show the most. That was hilarious! I loved this episode as much as Final Frontier and zombie ep, which were my most recent favorites.
I agree with you, nobody asked for Firefly reenactments or anything, but some "together screen time" would've been very nice, and was actually touted by ABC as such. Odd decision. But don't pay attention to Katarzyna, she is one of that so-called Firefly haters crowd in the Castle fandom. For some reason she always goes by this name and her writing style is very distinctive so I (and others) learned to never reply to her. Whatever Castle forum or article where there is a chance to dump on Firefly or badmouth Nathan Fillion, she's there all over it like mayonaise on a bologna sandwich. Sorry 'bout doing some badmouthing of my own, but I thought you needed some perspective here ;)
Loved it! She DID have the better gift...even if she HAD received the earrings.
I, too, believe Gates knows....she IS the head of a detective squad. Love that Lanie and Espo are back together....at least for Valentine's Day!
Next week's episode? Fasten your seat belts!!
Next week's show is a two parter - I am wondering if it will, in the end, be Rick's father who has Alexis kidnapped - James Brolin is scheduled to guest appear on the show in the next couple of weeks - coincidence or social media related? We all remember how Rick warned Alexis about putting too much of herself online. Whatever precipitates her being taken, I just KNOW Rick is going to be more than out on the ledge & certainly can't blame him - this has to be every parent's nightmare. I have instructed both of my children to hold THEIR children's hands very tightly when they go out anywhere & we live in very small communities - doesn't matter. There are unstable people everywhere. Be as smart as ya' can ... Some posters say Rick isn't a very good dad - I think he is - he is funny with Alexis & then the next thing we see him being really serious & explaining to her why he feels she should do this or that. I think he is one cool & very smart dad .... GO CASTLE!!!
I didn't like it. This season started off good, but seems to lack a lot of "something" in most eps. I can't tell exactly what that "something" is, but it doesn't seem as fun and entertaining to me as it use to. Next weeks does look good and I do love drama, so we will see how that one goes.
HOLY CRAP - WHAT IS UP with all the people on the Castle forum getting all caviling these days?
@Katarzyna - I KNOW it's Castle, I watch it and enjoy it every week, I don't need a reminder of the title. I as much said that I didn't expect any Firefly references or re-enactments. All I said was that the two former co-stars could have had SOME dialogue or interaction, and frankly, that's NOT an unreasonable expectation when you bring together two leads from a popular show, especially when it's advertised as such.
GEEZ - can we get off each other's backs and allow opinions to be expressed?
You know, I must be the only one thinking that this episode could have been so much better. Yes the episode was funny but not as funny as maybe Final Frontier - IMO. And, am I the only shipper fan out there that thought that there really wasn't much romantic screen time between Castle and Beckett - especially considering this was their first Valentine's Day together as a couple and it's something we have been dying to see for the last 5 seasons. Yes, I agree the drawer gesture was a nice step but let's be realistic. What could he possible keep in it? Maybe only his keys and wallet, if you ask me! Come on writers, as least make it more realistic - it should at least be big enough for him to have a few days' worth of clothes! I did love his facial expression when he realized the step she was making. However, yet again the lighting when they kissed was absolutely horrible. I don't ever miss an episode because I love the show - but to me they missed the mark on this one totally.
