Castle Season 7 Episode 1 Review: Driven

I just realized that the scene with the water from the fire hose “raining down” on her as she sat there on the ground in what must have been totally despair and helplessness was another symbolic moment of how it’s often raining when there’s a major turning point – usually for the better - in the Caskett relationship. Once the fire was out she was able to quickly determine that Castle was not in the car. There was still hope. I thought back to when they were trying to pick a wedding venue and Beckett thought about maybe having the wedding outside. She worried about rain but Castle pointed out that rain on your wedding day is actually a sign of good luck. I complain about this show’s mistakes with continuity often but this was one moment – one continuing thread - they got right in a very emotional way.

Good point, Grey. I hadn't thought of it that way but you're right. Nice catch.

NCIS Los Angeles Season 6 Episode 1 Review: In Deep Trouble

I really enjoyed all scenes with Sam and Callen in the sub. Plenty of clever technical ideas and moves from the two (who would have thought that ;-) )
What I absolutely liked was the continuity. In 1x08 they mentioned that Sam loved algebra and was a mathlete and in 6x01 it's here again! That's really amazing.
The Kensi/Talia fight suprised me a little, I still can't decide whether it was in character or not...
Nell taking over even Hetty's "medical duties", not good. Really hope that Hetty comes back from Washington. As much as I like Nell and the idea of her being the ops manager, it's not her time. Hetty still is the soul of NCIS LA.

Castle Season 7 Episode 1 Review: Driven

As much as I was excited for the episode to air, I must admit I hated the episode!! None of it made sense as it progressed because instead of everyone, Espo, Kate, and Ryan, to know that 3XK stole all of their tissues, lab samples, dna, hired imposter actors, is dating a psycho plastic surgeon, etc., they should have rather guess that he was behind it rather than Castle would willingly leave Beckett. And let's just say for the sake of argument that Castle could leave Beckett (yeah right, the man that put his life, money, time, emotions, on the line for Beckett time and time again), he would never walk away from Alexis. The point is all of this feels to contrived as if they are just looking for a story which by the way seems redundant to keep the the season moving at the expense of what makes Castle so great- their great unshakable love. Beckett should be past the stage of no faith, actually they all should! Also, I would much rather see they get married, have normal plots and twists, and they simply work on the prediction of the guy from the future who said Beckett and Castle would have three children and she would become a Senator. That would put a whole new and interesting spin on the show watching it unfold. I hope this is as ugly as it gets because Castle should have no deep dark secrets.

@ cajeanpaul

cajeanpaul, I think (and it's just my guess) that all of this will be a way of looking at Castle's past. Way back in season 2 Beckett pressed Castle about what drives him to write about murder. He wouldn't answer the question and simply made jokes. The entire six seasons have been about Beckett's past and I think we're finally getting to dive into Rick's. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes.

I'm really surprised that there are so many fans, who support Densi relationship and want it to develope even more. I think that too much romance usually ruins a series (criminal, medical...), it completely changes its focus. Yes, plus I don't like Deeks. Cannot he be reassigned, permanently...?
And as much as I do love Callen even here I don't think that the relationship thing / Jollene is a good idea.
Really looking forward to Hetty story arc.
And Sam's past? That should be interesting. In comparision to Callen (and Hetty, and maybe Kensi and Deeks too) his past seems to be crystal clear so I've never been thinking about it. But maybe he has a child, he doesn't know about... or it may be something connected to Jaida (the sudanese woman he "pretended" to love).

There are a lot of us waiting for this romance and we might revolt if we don't get it.lol I don't watch NCIS LA for anything but Densi. I like Callen and Eric and even Granger but I wouldn't be here if there was no Deeks and I know I am not alone.

And now we know, that Tom is close and is feeding Liza some information about Berlin (his assets in bank).

Eh, wasn't shocking since no one on this show ever stays dead anyways.

I agree with your review except for Talia - I thought she was awesome, her bluntness to Kensi was sort of spot on and to be honest Kensi was as bad as Talia.
That fight needed to happen just so both of them could get a reality check - Anyway they started to bond after that and at Deeks expense of course.
Great episode and I'm glad the show is back again!

Outlander Season 1 Episode 8 Review: Both Sides Now

That mid-season finale was amazing ! I loved it. It was good to see Frank again and not forget. I also knew Claire would try to go back and choose Claire Randall. I was shouting at my screen when she got pulled back ! Didn't even realize that she touched the stones . I was so disappointed. I felt for Frank.
April is a long way to go. I will read the books. But I am definitely in love with this show, it has Scotland and time traveling ! Yup, I'm sold !

Shazzz

I'm guessing it's about his daughter…
