Castle Round Table: Mars is Murder

Personally I don’t get why so many people are anti kids with Caskett but to each their own. I want them to have kids – weather it be now or whenever. This could quite possible be the last season since the ratings are down and apparently there’s no movement in the contract negotiations with Fillion and Katic and ABC hasn’t officially renewed the show. So it’s quite possible if the show ends this season that will be the ending – them starting a family. (And I’m sorry, what the ABC executive said at the TCAs about wanting “Castle” to continue for a long time doesn’t count. You cannot take anything a TV executive says at the TCAs as whole truth. That whole event is about spin and PR.) I’m not a big fan of “Bones” but using it as an example for a moment, they’ve incorporated a baby (actually three babies if you include the supporting characters) and it seems to have worked out just fine. This whole kids or no kids “controversy” reminds me of the people/fans who didn’t want them to consummate the relationship. It was going to ruin the show! No one was going to watch anymore! It was the “moonlighting curse” all over again and, NO. It was not. Not only did it open up new story ideas but the ratings went up. Then no one wanted them to marry. Again, the show has done fine creatively and while the ratings are down, ratings are down across the board for all shows and networks (the “Empires” of the world are the exception, not the rule) because the TV landscape and viewer habits have changed. Then, after they were married, people said, “now what?” “How do you make a married couple interesting?” Well, they have! So how can so many of you be so sure a baby or babies would be such a bad thing or something that wouldn’t work going forward? You don’t. So, sorry for the long post but I don't think them starting a family would be the end all of the show if it’s done right creatively. So far every obstacle convention has thrown at them – consummating the relationship, marriage, post-marriage relationship – hasn’t stopped the fun from being funny or the drama from being dramatic. I'm "Team 'Baskett'"! #CastleBabies Btw, if you do the math based on what cannon information we’ve gotten from the show, ABC, Terri Miller, Marlowe, and things like “Castle” wiki, etc., there is a ten year age difference between Castle and Beckett. Castle was born on 04/01/69 (yes, April’s Fools Day) and Beckett was born on 11/17 of either 1979 or 1980 (both years are mentioned by different sources). Either way it’s basically a ten year age gap that currently makes Rick 45 and Kate 34/35. Certainly not “spring chickens” but certainly still young enough for Kate to have a baby, or babies, and young enough for Rick to start a second family. I've seen much older people - both the man and the woman - do it and be just fine.

I am enjoying Geena Davis's s/l, and like her scenes with Arizona. I do like Owen and Amelia together!

Curious there was little mention of Hook's character and his story arc this half. Is he too tempted between good or bad forces or is this primarily and Emma story?

@ tophat

I think he will want to get some payback on Rumple. Because he knows what Rumple is doing and did before. And was going to murder Emma and then him. But I think the challenge will be there, but he won't give in... He has love and light in his life. And he will always choose Emma

Black Sails Season 2 Episode 5 Review: XIII

This is my first review ever had to say something. Flint used to be a one of my favorite characters but now that's over they ruined it for me after this last episode. I'm done with black sails ! Dropping starz !

Since this is likely to be a shorter season (only 16 episodes apparently? yikes) I'm assuming all the episodes focused on smaller groups of characters are utilized to expedite an emotional connection to the characters so we care more about what happens surrounding Dr. Herman next ep. Although I like the plot this season better than last season, a lot of the episodes don't feel like story happening natural -- it just feels like they're getting through plot as efficiently as possible. I also don't like Owen and Amelia together. It felt like they came out of the blue and I REALLY thought Owen was going to go out with Callie given all their scenes together. It's also really unfortunate that so much of Amelia's character development took place on a different show. The only thing that bugged me about the tumor speech is what we heard too much of it (and it was a little high-octane.) One or two snippets near the beginning and end would've done the trick, but it feels like they were trying to crank up the intensity of the situation more than was natural for the atmosphere of the episode. It was exhausting to listen to.

There's actually 24 episodes scheduled for this season. They are currently filming 18 and had the table read for 19 the other day.

That's good to hear, except now there's no excuses for some of the shortcuts they've been taking.
