Not sure about this show. Have watched all of the episodes so far and so far, have been mildly impressed. A agree with Terrie, something is missing. And, when the owners of the restaurant were first shown, I had my suspicions then. After learning a little more about the dead guy, the connection was obvious and any mystery about who was responsible was over.

I totally agree. The difference is that Law and Order was a show that had a built-in logic that some actors in the cast would change except for a couple of major characters. There were some actor teams playing the roles of law enforcement characters/detectives that did not mesh well and IMHO, was the cause for the show's demise. Sam Waterson's character was about the only one that was a constant throughout the show airing. But, in the end, overall a really good show and it did have lasting power.

It may be fun for a couple of episodes but Castle and Justified are 2 shows I always watch. However, if the writers and producers play around with the dynamic between Beckett and Castle too much, since I don't record episodes, guess I will become one of the ones who do not watch at all. The antognistic relationship between Gates and Castle only adds to the great cast interactions that make it such a good or actually one of the best hours on network televison. Heck, I even watch reruns all the time and they are still enjoyable. Never fails does it? A show is popular with the format but eventually in order to add a "fresh" approach, writers and producers have to make changes that does not add anything but in most instances, detracts. "Fresh" approaches are good for a couple of episodes but viewers, whether they will admit it or not, like the continuity in a good series. About the only successful series that can change a main character and the show still works is NCIS. So far, they have had several characters playing the lone female in the group and so far, all have been great and able to fit in even with their differences in how they approach the role.
