I LOVED this episode - I love how this show gets better and better with each showing. David Giuntoli is such a pleasant surprise - eat your heart out, Brandon Routh... Nick has grown so much. First he was just super cute and charming, but now he's also quite bad-ass. The man went in a cage with a cannibalistic killing monster UFC style, defeated him and THEN still was yelling "bring it on!!" That was easily my favourite part. I love how much development we got on Renard (who is also super cute). It does seem like he's some Wesen royalty with a code of honour. He allows the "bad" Wesen to be killed in the fights, but draws the line when good guys get involved. Renard and Nick (and Monroe) are all unrepresentative of their ancestors, which is why they're all having trouble. Poor Juliette had to be confused,finding an engagement ring from a man who can't make it to anniversary dinner. She's gotta be wondering where his head is really at AND if she can really be a cop wife.

Definitely Community and Fringe. And I don't even watch Fringe!

Robert Knepper Cast on Cult

I was just about to ask..."Isn't that a "TV-based" version of Castle?" Then I saw this was tagged as Castle news. And it all made sense...

Castle Round Table: "Linchpin"

1. The conclusion was good; it was a solid episode of Castle. I, too, felt cheated by the car scene - it would have been better if we saw more of the escape. It's always nice to see Castle be a hero. 2. Tie. First one is Esposito eating classified for breakfast being mad at writer boy. Hilarious. Second is Castle on his knees in shock after the mention of his father; I really felt that. 3. Oh please, this case didn't do jack for Rick and Kate. I honestly don't know what the hell the writers are so afraid of. This show would be SO much more fun without all the awkward tension. 4. I think Castle's father is involved somehow in the cover-up of Johanna Beckett's murder. I honestly think it's gonna come down to a choice between Castle's father and Kate - and gallant Rick will choose Kate, she'll fall into his arms...

Castle Review: Checkmate!

@Richard - agreed. A lot of what used to make the show FUN seems to be gone. The incongruous pop music introducing us to the corpse, Castle's lackadaisical self-confidence, lampshading the cliches and one-liners. Alexis' playful mothering of her father. Martha's eccentricity. Where did all that go? I still love the show, but I miss all that.

30 Rock didn't get any more viewers at 8pm than Community did. I hope that shows NBC that the problem is not the show, it's the freakin' TIMESLOT.

How I Met Your Mother Review: New Hobby

YES. YES. THIS is what I'm talking about - this episode is why I keep watching this show after travesties like last week's... FINALLY - Ted can move on!! WHOO-HOO!! It's about freakin' time. I was laughing SO much at Marshall trying to convince Barney not to watch the tape and Ted's reactions. That was the funniest part of the episode - that and the single ladies dance. Also - another stunning performance by NPH with Ted. Oh Neil Patrick Harris...how I love thee. How you move my heart.

Once Upon a Crime, on Castle...

I wonder if there will be any crossover from "Once Upon A Time", also on ABC...

Castle Review: Checkmate!

Okay - now for the episode. Not the best Castle has done, but still quite enjoyable. The car escape scene was a bit of a cop-out - we should have seen more. And I miss the days when they would lampshade all the tropes they use! I disagree, though, that the life-saving should have a more emotional response. Rick & Kate have been saving each other's lives for almost 4 years - this is almost part of their day. I think the "thank you" is fitting for THEM. No one's talking about Esposito? His indignation at being left out was the funniest thing of the episode! From "writer boy" to "eating classified for breakfast" the end where Ryan was messing with him - I loved it. I sort of miss the old, fun, cocky Rick Castle who knew he was hot stuff. Being faced with that kind of exposure of his saucy past escapades, the old Castle would have sooner had a "yeah, I hit that" attitude, than an embarrassed, apologetic fumble.
