Castle Season 6 Report Card: Grade It!

Loved the show all season, never missed an episode. But the ending was too, too terrible to ever watch again. It seems every TV show with a pending wedding for the principals gets this kind of treatment. It's getting tiresome.

The Mentalist Review: It's About Time

The very best Mentalist episode ever. Jane getting the first case out of the way without any of his tricks or stalls. He was on a mission. His coming to grips with what he felt for Jane despite his fear of losing everything as he had his first family. Even juggling a second murder into the mix. I love Abbott. He really gets Jane and the whole dynamics of the unit. Hope we see this come back later this year, though I know it's no sure bet. Even if it doesn't, this show was a perfect ending.

I really expected better from the writers of Castle than the last episode. The "got married when drunk but didn't remember it" was done quite some time ago on Bones, and better. As well as the hunt for the missing, unknown spouse. And we've already had the ultimate cliff-hanger end of season episode on Castle when Beckett was shot. Was Castle in the burning car, charred to a crisp? Don't know if I care.

The Glades on A&E (damn them) had the worst non-ending last show. I will never forgive that network for screwing up something good so badly.
The main character is shot in his home on his wedding day, no closure and the network cancels the show the next day. A&E is completely mis-named. It should be the garbage reality network.

The Newsroom Review: Pulling Off the Happy Ending

The best season finale for any show on TV ever, period. While I didn't cry for joy I did text some friends about breaking out the champagne. Reese and Charlie were hilarious and Jane Fonda is spot on for her part. My only regret is there are so few shows during its short run in the summer. Come on HBO, can't we have at least five or six more episodes a year?

Thank you to USA network for a fine seven seasons and a fitting finale. Maddie turned out to be such a hero and I can understand her decision, having lost one son and mortally afraid of losing her second. Michael's love for his mother has always humanized his character, no more so than in the final episode. As for where Michael and Fiona are in hiding, highly unlikely it's in Ireland, at least for now. Did anyone notice all that snow? Ireland has a moderate climate and snow is rare, except for in the mountains and occasionally a few inland counties. Not on the coast, however. Been there, not seen that. Thanks to everyone who made 'Burn Notice' must see TV these past years. I look forward to seeing all the actors showing up on other shows in the near future, even if only as guest stars. Here's hoping USA will take up the brutal ending then cancellation of 'The Glades' that was on one particularly contemptible TV network and carry on with that great series. USA has a much better reputation for solid episodic TV while the unnamed horrible network can't do much more than lame so-called reality shows.

Hate Helen, kill her off immediately and let us see her in the morgue to make sure she is dead this time. Hate Calder, let us watch him die slowly and painfully. Annie and Auggie's breakup was painful and didn't feel true. As you said, forced and shallow. Hope this show gets to a better place, including Arthur and Joan, because it's always been one of my favorites. I'm very unhappy with it now.

As always, a most worthwhile show. I never like to see dogs being used as an evil weapon as the Rottweiler was, but as his owner was evil that was inevitable. Should have put the dog down too. The nanny was far more evil than in a hurry, she hated those kids, ignored them, physically abused them and didn't anyone notice the steam coming from the bath water? Way too hot, another form of torture. Which the unsub also used to torture. I would love to have Beth (or another interesting, kind, funny woman who can make Hotch smile) back on the show. Often mentioned there should be more of Will and now Henry, missed Jack lately, too. The horrors of the show need to be a bit more balanced with the personal relationships. Those are what keep everyone sane after dealing with often ghastly nature of their job.

I agree with Sue totally until she mentions Hannibal. I don't want Criminal Minds replaced, just keep renewing it. The cast are all excellent in their parts and the writers keep coming up with great stories. But those writers also help create the varied and interesting team that is Criminal Minds. The personal relationships keep us coming back. While I love Reid and could watch Matthew Gray Gubler for days acting in anything, I think J.J.'s husband Will is also underused.

Castle Review: Framing Big Foot

Loved the show and everyone in it. It's got everything going for it: murder, mystery, cops, romance, bromance and great family relationships (the Castles, anyway). To those who don't like the characters... then don't watch. We don't need your negativism.
