Grade Castle Season 5 so far...
This has been the best season and I've enjoyed it so much!I really don't have a favotrite or worst epi. Ilove that Caskett is a couple now and Stana and Nathan are the best and have the best chemistry!I am not disappointed in the least!I love the way the writers are bringing the past into the present.Contrary to popular opinions, I really liked Swan Song . I liked the way Casket had what they thought was a private PDA, trying to hide the footage. I believe that Gates already knows or suspects about them,but is choosing to keep quiet because she admires Kate so much.I loved to hear Jon singing and Kate locking the camera guy in the supply closet and sticking out her tongue was just too great! Ohhh, Stana., but I loved it!For 2013: I hope to hear Kate tell Rick that she loves him. We know she does,but he has told her that several times now, so its her turn. I'd like to see the romance between Kate and Rick grow, but not jump them into a marriage or pregnancy too soon.I trust that the writers wont do that.I hope that they keep bringing the past back into the present. I'd like to see Kate and Lanie singing and I'd like to meet Lanie's mom.Maybe an engagement between Kate and Rick by seasons end, butI might be jumping a little ahead on that one.Most Dramatic:Probable Cause and I cant say enough about Stana's powerful performance in"The Morning After"!She deserves an award for that alone,but she deserves many more! I love this show, entire cast, the writers and all who bring us this AMAZING show every week. My Mondays would not be right without it, so a very heart-felt thanks to all who really bring it and become our inspiration!
We need to see more passion scences between Kate and Rick. We need to see Kate actually tell Rick that she loves him. Also Rick needs to get into better physical shape, and regain the rugged, rough, unshaven look he had in the first two seasons. Also it wouldn't hurt to have Castle experience a near death injury and see how Becket handles such a crisis.
cont...the writers almost completely made no use of the secret to paly up for fun in the show. Lots of fans waitied whole summer for hilarious scene where Lanie finds out the relatioship or funny scene with Ryan or Espo teasing the duo about the relatioship- these did not happen. Wasted. Except ofr few glances, no sly touches. They said , more banter and fun this season, so far I don't really see much flirty banter. I know, they will try to up the ante again by the end of the season as they usually do. Maybe I should just come back to watching the show by April.
best episode: Murder he WroteWorst: Swan songBiggest disappointment: lack of romance and passion. For a 10PM show, Castle is too tame. Big Bang Theory(an 8pm show) is more daring in showing passion between the leads. Maybe Castle is aiming for the younger audience, so maybe transfer it to 8PM timeslot, it is so tame anyway for a 10PM timeslot. Also let's be honest, a lot of fans watch this show for the Castle-Beckett love story than the case of the week. So the love story is the A story and NOT the crime (the writers like to believe the the case is the A story and the love story is the B story). If I just wanted a murdercase, I will just go and watch CSI. The season 5 episodes so far are so tame. Excpet maybe for few moments like the the romantic handshake and the hug in After Hours, the rest of the Castle-Beckett interactions show NO passion.The writer also missed out of the fun of the secret relationship. Except for the scene when Ryan found out the relationship, the writers almost completely make no use of the secret to play up for fun. Fans waited the whole summer for the hilarious scene where Lanie finds out the secret, or a funny scnene with Espo or Ryan teasing Castle & Beckett- these did not happen. Also, we were promised more flirty banter and fun, I don't see much of those banters so far.
Best Ep - Secret's Safe for the touching scenes when Kate explained the stick man and when Castle left Alexis at the dorm,and the handshake, but for the pure cleverness of it, I loved Final Frontier. Worst Ep - the documentary left me pretty bored even before the halfway mark, but I still find it interesting that most of the cast absolutely loved doing that one. Biggest Improvement - Besides the obvious of them being a couple, I've been very happy to see some honest and open communication between Kate and Castle. Biggest Disappointment - Like most others have said, I think there's definitely room for more passion. Hopes for 2013 - I hope they continue to communicate more openly with each other and that we get over the hurdle of Kate knowing why Castle's marriages didn't last. Ever since the show started, I've been wanting to see Kate take Castle to her mom's grave and 'introduce' him so to speak. I'm also hopeful that we can get past Gates knowing about them fairly soon. Lastly, I'd like to get an early renewal for a season 6!!!!!!!!!
