As far as the romance goes, it looks very suspicious to me that Nathan does not want to do the scenes. In many outside interviews he expresses his opinion that hooking these characters up would be a mistake. He says things like "you can't turn back after that happens." In the early kisses, Stana tries to get some passion and attempts french kissing, but Nathan never lets his lips part. They seem to like each other okay in most interviews but I wonder if there might be a deeper dislike for one another beneath the surface. I'm sure that Marlowe hears the fans screaming for more romance and passionate kissing. If he is simply ignoring the fans, it will bite him in the ass soon enough, but if it is the actors who won't cooperate, I'm not sure what he can do to force the issue. Comments anyone?

I really did enjoy this season, but its not my favorite. I find that I can rewatch seasons 1-3 an unlimited number of times, but the most recent seasons have very little rewatch value to me. As for season 5... the cute and sappy scenes are great and all, but when are we actually going to see some passion between these two characters? To me it feels like there was more passion in the pilot episode then there was all season 5. The closest we came to that was the Hamptons episode (which I loved). It might come down to the fact that we never really saw them through their early relationship due to the time jump. I guess I should be thankful for what we do get, and I understand that there's only so much non-case time per episode, but is one hot scene too much to ask for. They must know what we want to see and are holding out on us.

My reply to these comments, EXACTLY! Will Marlowe and company please read what your dedicated viewers want! We want real romance, passion in the kisses, dating, dancing together, etc. Stop it with all of the almost kisses, the almost conversations, etc. It is past the cute stage and is down right irritating now. We want to see them talk about important things, like they did with "Jordon." Everyone is disturbed about what they did with Beckett's character, i.e. turning her into a cold, emotionless bitch, and with Castle, i.e. turning him into a wimpy door mat. Everyone agrees that the crime solving is necessary, but it doesn't have to consume the whole show. Take a brick of time and devote it to the stuff we want!!!!!!!!!!!!

I loved season 5 and it is rapidly running to the top of my list as the favorite of all 5 seasons. I gave the season an A. I enjoyed the bulk of the season but have grown tired of the famous Caskett interruptions. If at all possible, let's allow them to have one complete conversation when they return in Season 6. Hopefully it will begin with Yes. We also need another thriller episode comparable to Pandora. Include back stories on all the characters like Lanie and Chief Gates. She has to have a story behind her disposition and style of leadership. Above all, allow some hand holding, stolen kisses moments between rick and Kate. Everything is about full blown sex. Let them talk and go on a date. Regardless of the upcoming changes which I fill will be many...I will be back as long as there is a Castle.

I can't vote on a grade because I LOVED the season up until "Squab", "Human Factor", and "Watershed". Those 3 episodes ruined the whole season for me. Turning Kate into a selfish b**** and Castle into a total wuss doesn't give me much hope for next year.

In my opinion this has been their beset season but always room for improvement. My biggest complaint is that hopefully they have much more continuity, I mean huge stuff happens in one episode and then its never mentioned again or like nothing happened in the next epside. I know its a procedural but adding a serialized aspect will add so much more. Anyway that's really my big complaint but I thought this season was fantastic.

I watch a lot of tv, and I have never found a tv show such as Castle so rewatchable. I just can't stop. This season really does feel like season 1 just with Castle and Beckett together and it was really fun to watch. One of my favorite episodes of the season was "Significant Others." The interaction between Castle and Beckett and Castle and Espo/Ryan was hysterical. "Still" is the best clip show ever. It is a very rewatchable episode. My only gripe about season 5 are the last 4 or 5 episodes where Alexis/Martha/Lanie are almost nonexistent. They should have been it more at the end.

I 100% agree with everything you said in this article! Especially your hopes for Season 6! Perfect

WOW! I totally agree with everything Christine mentioned. Overall, it was my favorite season so far but I do have hopes for some of the improvements mentioned in season 6.

I so enjoy this show that I watch it over and over again on cable. The characters are great, love his mother and daughter, love the bro-mance,and, of course, Castle and Beckett - there were some shows that were misses, but it didn't matter because I watch it for enjoyment, not for the plausibility of the plot.
