I hope the runners/writer/producers pay attention to the feedback here and that they haven't already shot too many episodes to stop this stupid arc with Beckett leaving Castle. It makes no sense. It is inconsistent with the entire premise of the show and it risks losing viewers and having the show cancelled. It seems stupidly self-destructive. Everyone here feels the same. I did find this episode entertaining and enjoyable until the end. Liked Super Nose Lady theme (what a neat super power). Thought it a bummer that Ryan didn't pass the exam. Don't need a rift between him and Espo. Thought the name Assposito was clever. Still much to like but not this ongoing story arc.
Well, it seems almost unanimous. The writers or show runners are screwing up a great show. Hopefully they read this column and take this as feedback quickly while there may still be time to get things back on the rails before Castle gets cancelled. We have watched and enjoyed it from the outset but this nonsense with Beckett doing her own thing and freezing out Rick is a bad idea. The plot with Vikram is also hard to follow.
I don't think most Australians share your gun loving views. https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
I really don't like the Lous Canning character. I sincerely hope they don't spend a lot of time on him next season. Agree that Cary is one of the best remaining characters and so often MIA. I have grown to like Ely but in a supporting role (not too much of him either).
If you have the option to record Sunday evening shows from west coast feeds do so. I leave in the east and record those shows from west coast stations. They don't get delayed by sports events which are almost always over long before 9:00 west coast time.
Here's a tip for Sunday evening recording. If you have access to west coast stations showing your favorite shows, record them from those stations. They record quite late for east coast times but they don't get preempted and delayed by sports events. I live in eastern Canada and record from Vancouver network stations. We don't get west coast versions of US networks in our cable package so for 60 Minutes I set it to record for 2 hours. That always seems to get the whole show even though I might have to fast scan through up to 45 minutes of football.
I hadn't thought about the reason for leaving the hairbrush but your comment is a very good one. That's the kind of reasoning that Kalinda would use. As for the campaign, I agree that it ended too quickly and simplistically. I also agree that it is hard to imagine watching those episodes again--much ado leading to nothing. Finally, the court case about mandatory sentencing could have been a lot more meaningful and ending on a clerical error was another lightweight script. This has been a good show over the seasons but the writers seemed to have phoned in a few episodes. They need to set up a compelling story line for next season before ending this one. While it is likely that someone (with a bit of patience) could start watching this series part way through, there are so many long running story lines that it would be a bit difficult to figure everything out. Unless people watch old seasons on DVD or Netflix, they would miss a lot. Therefore, the series stands to slowly lose viewers over time through poor scripts or plot lines and gain very few new viewers. In the end it just withers away.
I agree this was a good episode. Liked the conversation between Peter & Alicia. Time they moved on and this was a good position for both. Enjoyed the mock trial. We need more of this. Good points made by both sides which does, indeed, make you think. Probably won't change any minds but at least provokes thought. We tend to surround ourselves with like-minded people and not hear the other side of debates such as this. If only we could all have civilized rational discussions about such contentious issues. Is this how they get Kalinda off the show at the end of this season (by sending her to prison)? Voter fraud accusation was a shocker. Both my wife and I exclaimed "where did that come from??"
I thought the episode was pretty good. I'm not sure I see a Greek default as the start of Armageddon as the world financial institutions are better positioned to deal with it now. Of course, contagion to other European countries remains a risk especially if they see Greece get special treatment. I hope Stevie gets together with someone her own age. Her boss seems a bit creepy hitting on her in the office. Good move to get Henry into more action.
I hope this election victory doesn't mean an end to the legal part of the show. I have always found the trials interesting and thought-provoking. I hope they find a way to keep/return to some of that going forward. I agree that Alicia has become harder to cheer for. If she's going to have a romantic relationship, I vote for Finn. Some very good talent has been absent or very limited in recent episodes. Is this a way to keep the costs down? Do they only get paid by the line they deliver?
