Really like the show. It's on my for sure list.
Honestly, I thought the episode was boring. Gibbs being an ass and sidelining Tony just seemed like the usual humiliate Tony for no logical reason type of writing. I'm sick and tired of the writers dredging up Gibbs's angst and his tragic past. Are we in for another season of brooding GIbbs's with more appearances from his already over done tragic past? I'd love to see bad ass Tony a whole lot more but I'm guessing like last season, the writers will be shoving McGee down our throats on those increasingly rare occasions when they aren't shoving another angst and danger filled martyr/hero Gibbs arc down our throats. They need a new show runner and some new writers and to have some new ideas.
Who says...., we had little to go on until GG took over , not an inkling of what DiNozzos past really entailed . Boo hoo oh my gosh Gibbs took the bullet and suffered. guess what this fan wishes that Tony took it, so you'd just go away. The messiah complex is totally DB problem not aMH problem. Tony was conceived as a guy who couldn't put down roots anywhere was a clown as his defense mechanism, has car issues , issues with female coworkers, like Kate or Ziva and liked to bully his underling McGee, and feelings of inadequacy. He's growing up he sure as heck wasn't the perfect agent from day one yr one or yr five. Oh wow we are now in yr 13, and maybe just maybe Tony's gonna figure it out , because his bravado about protecting Gibbs to not take a leadership position in season 4 just falls flat, he cares about his boss too much, his tendency is to hide from the ugly truth, or run from it,Tony will be a great leader for reasons so different from his boss but it will be his own unique math equation. To be disclosed.
Then don't watch anymore, most of us don't see Tony sidelined or humiliated, by the way he did a pretty good job of humiliating himself in the first two seasons too. Tony isn't a bad ass, he's a good decent person with issues, guess what just like his boss in so many ways.
He was originally conceived as a funny, brave, bad ass former cop. It is Glasberg and company who have made sure we almost never see Tony in danger and never see him cast as a hero. Those honors must ALWAYS go to super GIbbs now. Tony has become the disrespected team member that no one really seems to trust.
Thank you guys for this. Pretty much summed up my frustration. It's absurd how much Castle has fought for this relationship as opposed to how little Beckett has. At this point in the relationship, if she still can't put him as the number one priority in her life and can't be happy just being his wife, then will she ever? I'm at the point where I can pretty much only see this relationship failing, and the fact that they are going to have Castle "win her back" is so beyond ridiculous and just sad I don't even have words for it.
I have no problem stating quite clearly, if this is the direction the show is going, I am outta here. If this is who the writers want Beckett to be, fine, they will have to do it without me. The chemistry was great between Castle and Beckett and now that they are married, her removing herself from the marriage is a real downer.This is one of the few shows I have kept up with over the years other than NCIS and Justified when it was on. I will watch it this coming week but depending on the direction and how the writers handle their relationship, it may be my last time watching the show.Too bad writers and producers believe they have to reinvent the wheel when the wheel was turning just fine. Sometimes stability is the reason for watching a particular show and the stability between Castle and Beckett was dependable.Hope they can right the ship but if they go the way they are going, it will sink and the series won't be renewed for next year. I have a strong feeling too many feel the same way I do.
Thanks the review. All of you summed it up for me too. My three main problems with the split are 1) regression of Beckett as a character. We have been in this exact situation before( season 4 finale ) and she moved forward. She should not go back. I am sure Stana, who knows the character best, has reasons for wanting this storyline but I can't see them myself. Please enlighten me someone!2) they are not just partners any more like before. They are MARRIED! You don't just walk out on a marriage and once Castle understands her choice entirely I hope he kicks her to the curb. she should win him back not the other way around. 3) it logically makes no sense . Why would her leaving, yet keeping the same job and staying in NY keep Castle safe? He was already abducted the episode before by these people wanting to find Beckett so ... How does that logic track? In a nutshell; the split is totally contrived by the writers and forced to get more " juice" as they called it. It doesn't come from the characters at all. I will no longer be watching Castle , at least not until they resolve this plot line.
One last comment before giving the new format one more peek next week. Maybe the writers are taking lessons from Coke when several years ago, they tried a new formula that fell flat on its face and when the old Coke formula was brought back, sales increased dramatically. The point is that I know one of the employees of Coke who was involved in the "new formula" scam. It was a calculated risk with the predictions that once the new formula left a bad taste in everyone's mouth, they would run back to the old formula in droves. It worked with Coke but Castle ain't Coke.Maybe we the viewing audience have been jerked around one time too many and just maybe the Castle show will be the reintroduction of the old formula that falls on its face after the so-called injection of something new to shake things up does not work nor resonate with most of the fans.Reviewers and writers should take notice of the responses posted here and reconsider the direction they took sooner than later.
I'm not so sure it's Boone now. He was off with Grace when the Dollar Scholars ran into the Red Devils. Not that it means anything. Loved the Backstreet Boys song, esp when it came to "raise your arms" part and the dude had no arms. Guess the gym juice helped him not feel anything! He was unphased by going armless.
Excuse me for the dissenting vote but I admire Beckett very much. Apparently she was the only one that realized that Castle, Martha and Alexis were all fair game for the mercenaries chasing her and wanting to kill her to use as leverage and bait to capture and/or kill Beckett. Beckett knew that she had to move out so that the mercenaries would think that she and Castle had broken up so that Castle and his family were no longer loved and therefore no longer useful as leverage and bait. The fact that Beckett loved Castle very much and did not really want to move out was clearly evident by the tears and anguish on her face as she left. The fact that she needed to face her demons was a factor also but I consider that it was something she could tend to later after she was sure Castle and his family were safe.
They are still at risk. I pretty sure the big bad knows that Beckett wouldn't let Castle of Alexis get hurt even if they were broken up. This is just the writers creating drama we could do without. It would be much better to see Beckett and Castle do this together.
Except cold blooded killers would go after Castle and his family regardless and it puts them in a worse position because he has no idea they are out there.
I couldn't stand this show! I have already deleted it from my DVR schedule. There are far better shows more deserving of my viewing time. I found the acting and writing an insult to every fine actor in this series. No love, Robin
Was always a Castle fan but this twist is so ridiculous I doubt if I will ever watch it again. Too many good shows on now to get hooked on. Too bad.
I was not pleased with how Blue Bloods started the new season. Danny being a bully and shoving people was totally not up to par. I am seriously thinking to stop watching Blue Blood if this is the NEW DIRECTION we can expect this season.
My favorite episode so far. Yes I know it is only the 3rd episode, but still.After last week, my vote for Red Devil was Wes, however after tonight, I am having doubts, yes I know there are 2 Red Devil's and he showed Texas Chainsaw Massacre and really likes that movie, I think they are just trying to make us think it is him. However he was just cut by the chain saw, not killed.I guess the same can be said for Dean Munsch. She is creepy and when Gigi went downstairs to sleep, she said that was for the best. Then she was almost killed by Red Devil.Each week trying to figure out who Red Devil is will change.I like Chad, but I shouldn't he is an awful guy but I find myself liking him and the offensive things he says.I guess each week we are getting a funny death (not that death is funny) but come one last week Chanel #2 and then this week the Dollar Scholar de getting his arms sawed off and picking up the bat with the on good arm from his arm lying on te street....so funny. Then the more brutal death was Coney.There were so many more great moments and I wanted to try and remember them all.I like the little things that happen in the show like Grace and Pete at the gas station and we see it says "last chance" or "last stop".Denise suspecting Zayday, until she said the chainsaw was from her Grandma was great.I could not believe how fast the hour went.The five Dollar Scholars in all white on the street and Backstreet boys song playing. Perfect!I love this show.
