I don’t think anyone has posted on the new season of Castle. I can only assume it’s because no one is watching.
The last I could find was this: 2014 thread.
I went ahead and marked this with spoilers because of the 4 or 5 of us left watching it; I don’t think any of us will care!
So the season starts of immediately with a two-parter. I can only assume it’s because the first half was such a turd, they had to try anything to reel us back in for the 2nd week.
The scene in episode 2 where Beckett says “Shut up and kiss me” was the most God awful terrible line in all of tv show history. I busted out laughing when it occurred.
Also when bad guy comes in and has everybody drop their guns. HELLO!!! Ryan and Espisito both have their guns on him! Just pull the trigger! Maybe I need to re watch that scene.
God! I used to love the fun of this show; and I guess they feel they need a deep conspiracy to keep viewers interested. Hoo boy, I thought the first two episodes were dumb beyond all rational.
HOWEVER… the series is getting on in age, and so they have to let the Characters grow. I get that. To me that even opened up a few possibilities that might be fun to explore.
So based on the first two episodes here are my pros and cons. Let’s discuss.
Castle and Alexis pairing up as private eyes. That might be fun. She’s getting to old to keep jumping around different schools and bringing home stray weird boyfriends. (not to say that it won’t continue to happen).
Beckett, Espisito and Ryan together again. They have good chemistry and I’m glad they’re going to be together. I wasn’t sure since Beckett is a Captain.
Beckett is back home in her own precinct (I think). I wasn’t sure until the end of the 2nd episode. I’m sure someone will let me know if I’m wrong.
The shadowy conspiracy theories is SO FREAKING OLD, and yet they do it every year. Hopefully, like previous seasons, we’ll only have to endure one or two episodes that focus on that bullshit.
Beckett leaving Castle? Blech. The old “I love you, so I have to leave you” trope has sucked since time began. TV History is full of shows that failed once the chemistry between two characters was finally resolved. Castle did a pretty good job of keeping the show entertaining even after Castle and Beckett got married.
Stupid British Chick. Please don’t ever bring her back. Ever. Please?
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I will be tuning into Hulu Plus next week to see if the show can return to somewhat normal fun of Castle, Espisito and Ryan being the men children that they are. Alexis outsmarting her dad at every turn, while he continues to tell her “You can’t do that, it’s too dangerous” and her doing it anyway.
