Solid epi - glad they're backburning the mother thing though. I don't mind it being a thread throughout, but after the way it took over several epis leading up to the finale of last year, they needed to address it in the premiere.
I expected this first episode to be kinda dark themed with what happened at the end of last season but hopefuly we will soon be back to our quick wit, smart a$$ed, sarcastic show we all love
just got my season 1 and 2 dvds. planning my own marathon.
Kate looked gaunt this episode...great make up or she really worked for the part. But I,too, am glad we are going back to lighter stuff. Obviously the "final season" will solve the mom's murder and then Kate will be open for love.
annnnnnnnndddddddddd were back...our killer is a super hero..lol
Or not! Not to spoil... keep an open mind if you haven't seen it yet. Love the guy who played the "good brother" on Jericho.
Now that's the type of show that makes me want to watch Castle. I am feeling twinges of anxiety at the thought of Alexis leaving or at least being less visible. And does that mean that Mona will have less of a presence?:down
I have to admit I don't mind Alexis having a little less appearance - besides she applied for spring admission, they didn't mention she was accepted - yet. ;)
This was a fun episode because of the sheer oddity of it. You also have the wonderful banter amongst the group that has kept this show going on.
I do wonder however, if Stephen Cannell Were still alive, if they'd had a poker scene here with Castle discussing it and Cannell making some comment about "The Greatest American Hero" and Ralph Hinkley.
There is a bit of humor with this notion regardless:
Click to see Spoiler:Apparently the person doing the stunts for the avenger superhero character was Dennis Madalone, a stuntman who was William Katt's double in "The Greatest American Hero," and who has also done stunts for the "Star Trek" franchise among other cases.
But she was acting like she was already in so it was confusing. Because apparently Stanford accepts all comers (not saying she isn't smart, but so are all the applicants). I have to say I was disappointed in Alexis this episode; she never struck me as the type who would even entertain the thought of taking all the courses her boyfriend is taking rather than making her own choices. It's enough that she's choosing a university based on her boyfriend's choice (I mean, did he consult her when choosing a school?). Regarding her continued appearance on the show, maybe they will have her not getting accepted to Stanford but instead going to a school nearer the city, such as Yale or Princeton.
The new captain still bugs.
