How could our attention be maintained by another new police/detective show? Nathan Fillion is the star luminary in the cast, playing the part of Richard Castle Can this really be the same person who played Dr.Pomattor in Waitress? Not doubt it is the same person who played Captain Hammer in ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along’. But this new Phillip Marlowe infuses Castle with the right mixture of wit, mystery, and comedic relief. And female fans will find a lot to appreciate as well. Stana Katic, as Detective Kate Beckett, carries the female counterpoint to Fillion’s Richard Castle. A veteran of supporting roles, Katic now joins Fillion in center stage. Rounding out the ensemble is Molly Quinn playing Castle’s daughter Alexis and Susan Sullivan as his mother Martha Heath.
Even with such a great group of actors it’s the writing that keeps me watching. Written by Barry Schindel, David Grae, Andrew W. Marlowe, and Charles Murray the pilot was a solid introduction to this new series and its characters. After the first show was apprehensive that the writers could keep the intermix of comedy and complex crime stories going for an entire season. Till now i was wrong.
The chemistry between Castle and Beckett is palpable which plays well into their love-hate relationship. Much to her disdain, Castle is given permission to follow Beckett. Castle redeems himself with Beckett even though he often gets in the way, speaks out of turn and manages to be annoying. Little by little, Beckett is learning to rely upon his input, as well as his risk-taking, and care about him. He also endears himself to Beckett’s colleagues with small gestures like purchasing a top-notch coffeemaker for their use.
Castle’s mother and daughter are filled with contrasts. His mom acts immature, has entitlement issues and needs to be seen. Wise beyond her age, the daughter holds her grandmother in line and provides a lot of support for her father. As a devoted father, Castle can’t help buy show concern about his daughter, even though she’s fully capable of taking care of herself. Of all the actors in the series, Molly C. Quinn is one of the best. Given her youth she should have a long career.
The show has become one of my favorites. Hopefully it will have many more seasons. The next season of TV is particularly exiting for me since I just got the HD Triple Play from Comcast. I got a great deal that I found online by bundling Digital Cable, High Speed Internet, and flat-rate Digital Voice into one simple low-cost bill. I am really excited to try the Comcast broadband internet service I signed up for that will compliment my Digital Cable very well. The ancient DSL connection I had was so unpredictable and slow I couldn’t watch any videos online or listen to great new music. Now, this will no longer be a problem. And with Comcast Digital Voice, I don’t ever have to worry about per minute phone bills anymore. I can call local and long distance nationwide to who ever I like for one low bill. If you are in a Comcast serviceable area you should definitely look at the best deals they’re offering right now. Look into them today before these special promos come to an end.
