And yes - a leading crime-fighting couple can TOTALLY work. Hart to Hart, Chuck, Lois & Clark...Moonlighting didn't work because Willis and Shepherd hated each other...
As someone who has been exactly where Castle is (or where he thinks he is, anyway), his reaction is spot on. Walking that line between anger, hurt, shame and feeling like the biggest fool on earth, but still trying to function. Not wanting to be petulant and lash out but not being able to stop yourself from getting one or two digs in...I totally get it. He'll eventually blow -it's not like Castle to keep quiet. But for now it's too fresh for him. And as for Castle being a hypocrite - bull. Beckett isn't dealing with Castle because she's emotionally stunted. Castle's keeping the secret to save her life - he's watched her die once, can't blame him for not wanting to go through that again. The two secrets aren't even comparable. I'm completely on Castle's side here LOL
I'm also shocked there's no Barney Stinson! Wow... Also, I would have given a nod to Troy Barnes from Community...the whole cast is great, but there aren't many funnier things than a Troy Barnes freak out... From the current nods, I'd have to go with Schmidt.
I'm also pretty sure there is an overarching theme - there are clues to it. The same Japanese girls that were in the pilot were in this episode - they just showed up in New York. But we just saw them for a bit, not for anything significant to this episode. I'm willing to bet that they're part of something even bigger.
1. Definitely Espo and Ryan ditching Castle and the elevator explanation. Not only was it hilarious, it was a nice reminder that Richard Castle is a chick magnet and not just a morose puppy-dog for Beckett... 2. Totally knew who he was - I was surprised Castle didn't! 3. No competition - Ryan and Espo for the win. 4. He's Rick Castle - blabbing is what he does best LOL. 5. Scale of 1 to 10? I'd say 25...this is the most excited I've been about an upcoming episode of Castle in a looooong time. It's about FREAKIN' time.
It's. About. To Go. DOWN. I hope this episode gives Nathan Fillion a chance to show that awesome range of his.
I think people complaining about the connections being contrived are missing the point. The whole point of the show is that people are connected in a way so above our heads, most ordinary people can't see it. But a special few, like Jake, are able to make sense of these things. The way I see it, the fact that it's unbelievable is supposed to be the idea - if it were believable then we wouldn't need Jake... I love it. I love shows that demand attention to detail and thought. Kiefer Sutherland is amazing...and I say that having never watched 24.
As a die hard Castle fan, I gotta say....this episode was a little underwhelming. I was kinda bored by it, and that's saying a lot, cause I'm NEVER bored by Castle. For an episode that they touted as being dance-related, there was practically no dance at all save for the beginning of the episode. It's totally not the characters - Nathan Fillion could make chemistry with wallpaper. Espo and Ryan were pretty funny. But there wasn't anything really engaging about this case, or the dialogue. The only part I really thought had any depth was Castle and Beckett talking about her dream job as a lawyer. That being said, I'm VERY excited to see the s*** hit the fan next week :-)
I think folks are being a little too hard on David in this episode. Mary Margaret has an excellent point, but she didn't have MEMORIES to fight off when David was in the hot seat. The guy's only memories of Storybrooke are what were made since he woke up, and he's been trying to remember his past for ages now. How on earth is he to know that those were mixed up memories from A PAST LIFE (She's gonna kill someone...my wife was killed, but Mary Margaret's hair was longer in my dream - really?!? Who would have THAT immediate reaction?). While WE see the dream clearly, it's obvious he didn't and he's trying to understand it. I give him credit for having the courage to go to Archie to find out if it was him, AND for not incriminating Mary Margaret to Archie but going himself. David's not always the sharpest tool in the shed, but he's trying, and he's stuck in a can't-do-anything-right cycle.
I thought this was a perfect episode to come back from hiatus with - not only was it tame enough to not scare/alienate viewers, it was a good intro of the characters. This episode had one of the best showcases of a lot of characters. Easily Britta's best episode in a long, long, long time. She was much more than a two-dimensional caricature - I LOVED her this time. This was also one of the best Shirley episodes - it's great when we see the balance she brings to the group sometimes. Troy and Abed being normal - was WEIRD. I thought it was hilarious that everything they said sounded like sarcasm. And there were some real knee-slapper jokes. 24hr weird-down, Shirley's sexy-voice, Jeff's heart, Kilmer vs Bale...just so much. When Troy came out in Pierce's dad's ceramic wig I almost had an aneurysm LOL Welcome back, Community. I've missed you terribly.
