Castle Round Table: Mars is Murder

a rather juvenile reply.
I am not a football manager but can criticise a team selection or their tactics. As it is I made detailed criticisms which you obviously cannot refute.
There were huge plotholes here as usual with a Marlowe episode. WE had not so long ago the Creaseys and most commenters not understanding that Lanie hated her Mother in Setup.
That my friend is very bad writing.
Perhaps you should try and understand what good and bad writing is before writing yourself!

In the hope of seeing a good episode. I do not dislike the show merely the poor writing. We might just see an episode which ranks with those of seasons 1-4. We have had three and a half this season.
I don't apologise for having high standards. I should add I have been here since season 5. Of all the people who made the Watershed episode comments so much fun (and so large) I am the only one left. I do find that interesting and disturbing

About time. There is no reason why either Martha and Alexis are still at the Loft given Castle's wealth. The less we see of a woefully dressed ageing woman with bad manners the better. Only an idiot would go to Mars given the time involved and the cost. Miller as she showed in the AU Version simply doesn't understand simple economics. 2001 by a country mile. I would like the writers to give us some substance for a start instead of superficiality. Have Beckett having trouble getting trouble. Have them go to a specialist and then find out the pregnancy wil take time because she has been on the pill for almost 20 years. Everything. It started with Bad manners being shown as being funny. It was simply a very bad episode. I guess you could argue Miller showed what being a bad father and son is like.
No writer knows how to write Castle as child like. It is always childish. Just give it away please. The credits. The episode had finished

This was one really bad episode. Why does Miller think showing appalling manners is funny?
I am astounded Alexis and Martha believe they can bring anyone there at anytime for anything.
The idea that there could be a private venture to Mars shows again Miller has no understanding of finance as was shown showed in the AU episode. Not one but two ventures .Not amazing simply unbelievable. Only idiots would sign up for this.
And how come two trekkies do not know what a mind meld is? .
Castle again shown up as an immature child not child like in any way. This series simply has no quality controls at all and few decent writers. Make this the final series please.

Castle Round Table: The End of 3XK

although the plot line was VERY hard to believe Castle ( and Espo) did MURDER Tyson.. Strange morality for such a politically correct show. Tyson never faced justice as he should have. If you have to rank them this would be at the bottom. A few too many plotholes alah Marlowe. Still a good episode but it should have been a great one. It was unfortunate. Tyson plays Castle and Beckett like a fiddle and suddenly it miraculously changes? Only Marlowe could think that up. If you brought in luck then it would be believable. The chances of Castle outthinking Tyson are Buckleys. The chances of Tyson being right near a window that Espo can shoot at. Buckleys also. Yes. The radical and dramatic change that enables Castrle to outsmart Tyson when he has never come close preciously. Espo somehow knew what room Tyson was in and wasn't it lucky it had a window and then the absurd reason for Castle's unbanning. The original decision was done by a person who clearly had a vendetta against Castle as the excuse was lame.
The decision to allow him back was equally lame but done by a person who wanted to do him a favour.
an inherent contradiction that only a Marlowe lover could accept. The ending in bed.

Not a great episode but not a bad one.
Why not great.
Gates uncuffs Castle after she religiously did not let him anywhere near the precinct. Castle would hardly be allowed bail given his offence!
Castle outwits 3XK after being years behind 3XK in EVERY episode. Should have made it luck. Castle is well read not smart. He cannot play with people's heads. Espo was 'lucky to know what room 3XK was in and it had a window. Show it as luck as it surely was.
Beckett was 'lucky' the screw was loose. Should have been done another way. perhaps Castle coming to the rescue after getting Tyson. Then we have a DA's office who ban Castle on a the lamest of excuses do him a favour . why? It makes no sense. Should have been put into next week's episode. Having said all that the two parter was gripping and tense. Castle putting his hand on Beckett's face at the 'studio ' was perfect. Superb acting by both. Castle really looks old in the serious episodes but I assume he is meant. Gates looks old regardless. Good to see her in Smeagol mood and not Gollum. Her character needs to be consistent. We now have 4 decent episodes this season. I hope we get more.

Castle Round Table: Is That Really 3XK?

They haven't discussed anything. That is why both still talk about it. If you talk about having children you talk about when you have them, whom will stay at home etc
you do not haver so many conversations about having children if they had talked about and then made a decision. At present they both have thought bubbles. They never talk. It is like they are teenagers. When you grow up you will learn.
It is one of the most important things a couple talk about TOGETHER. It is a great shame Caskett are constantly portrayed as immature teenagers when they are closer to 50 and 40 respectively.
Castle has been married twice yet acts like someone who has never been married.

Caskett do not have kids and they have been together living together for over a year. Moreover Castle is closer to 50 than 40 and Beckett closer to 40 than 30. It is a very important topic for people of their ages.
It could well be the most important topic they discuss together yet they haven't. you must be assuming they are morons.

Of course it is Tyson. Why would Castle and Beckett think it was his tooth. Quite stupid actually. It was like they had forgotten completely about all the previous cases. Probably the girl. Beckett not very smart again. Two things. 3XK wants to 'torture' Castle so It will be all in Castle's mind what they might do. Create another Beckett like Niemann has done with others. The rubbish about having kids. Couples talk about that well BEFORE living together/ getting married. why oh why do they portray Caskett as an immature teenage couple.
Wearing high heeled boots was patently ridiculous as well. Only occurred for objectification purposes. The ending was spot on. Looking forward to next week. I will be disappointed if 3XK gets captured given how much he is playing with Caskett at present. I would like another episode of 3XK and Jackson Hunt deals with him and he is thus accepted back into the clan.
