Who has grabbed Richard Castle?

As far as your survey goes, none of the above. I am not upset, and I just don't care. I won't give this show another thought until next fall. I missed some of the more recent episodes, and now that one has to sign one's life away to view missed ABC shows, I will not be seeing them until the DVD comes out. And I don't care. This was a pretty bad season. The things I liked best about this episode: 1) There was a camera angle with the sun (supposedly) on Alexis's face in the loft which made her skin look like porcelain, ancient and precious. She truly is a beautiful young woman. 2) I am a big fan of Eddie McClintock. With both Eddie and Nathan Fillion running around, the eye candy quotient in this hour was overflow status. (Not to mention Ryan and Espo, hunks in their own rights ...) 3) That horrendous dress is destroyed. It had to be one of the ugliest gowns I have ever seen. The remains need to be burned, so there is nothing left of it in this world. 4) The wedding was moved to the Hamptons. It should never have been anywhere else. The ending was tacked on and ludicrous. If they are going to force a cliff hanger down our throats every year, at least make it have real potential threat. Castle is the center of the show. Put someone else in peril, someone who might reasonably not survive it, as Capt. Montgomery did not. I volunteer Alexis and Gates.

I think that she will change her own mind, not that Jane will change it for her. That proposal was frightening, because it was so inappropriate. It's far too soon in their relationship for a proposal, and she would be foolish indeed to say yes. And I am not, and never have been, a shipper for Jane and Lisbon, so don't think that figures into my opinion. In a country where women are still paid less than men for the same work, it is not even remotely surprising to see them treated as livestock and slaves. The slavery does happen, and I have read some horror stories about medical butchery in the Far East. Apparently organs can be bought. The thing I liked the best was the emotionless way Cho threatened the Colombian to get their assistance. He has always been my favorite character, and I, too, was touched by his speech to Lisbon. It is the ultimate respect for another individual, to give them the courtesy of accepting their decisions without trying to influence them. Cho gave her that respect.

I think that building was in downtown LA, wasn't it, not New York?

Castle Review: A Groovy Kind of Love

I was socially active in the 70's, and my then best friend was the head waitress at a bar in our (college) town. I was handled quite a lot by total strangers, and I was not the only one. And it was not just in that or any bar, and it was not in just that, or any, college town. I was handled by the director of the place where I worked. I was handled by strangers at fairs, in the crowd. It was quite, quite common. I do not miss it at all. Nor do I miss the 70's.

Unless one is a Neilson family, or polled in some other way, what difference does it make whether one watches them or not "so they can continue to come into our world ..."? But I saw no television last night. I was not home. It was indeed a major holiday, and I was amazed that the networks would run new programming. That was stupid.

Bones Review: Case Closed

I have not yet watched this episode. However, one thought which occurs to me about this missing information which they seemed to imply had been provided is that it is possible that the running time of the filmed scenes went over, and this information was deleted on the cutting room floor to make the episode fit in the time allotted. Many shows have this problem, and include deleted scenes in the yearly DVD's. However, since it is Bones, it is more likely that it is just sloppiness on the part of the writers and show runner.

Castle Review: A Groovy Kind of Love

I liked it -- it was a trip down memory lane. However, one thing which they omitted, which used to be quite common back in that day, was that Harold would not have stopped with verbal flirting and salacious comments. He would have walked over and started handling Lanie. It was one of the parts of the previous decades that I don't miss, not a little bit. They did a fairly good job of recreating a bygone day. The costuming was brilliant.

Good point. Yes, time sometimes flies there ...

I agree that this program was never presented as a romance series, and I don't believe that Jane and Lisbon belong together romantically. An accepted proposal from Pike would seem a trifle hasty, though. Teresa is more sensible than to jump into marriage with a virtual stranger just because the show did not get renewed.

Elementary Review: The Sovereign Army

"As always, Elementary never seizes to surprise or entertain me." I think you mean, ceases, not seizes.
