One of my friends told me about the TV show Castle, insisting that I’d like it because it’s about a mystery writer, Rick Castle, who tags along with the police to get inspiration for his stories.
After watching a number of episodes–not necessarily in any order–I can say that I do quite enjoy the show. Â Nathan Fillion, who plays Castle, is excellent. Â Firefly fans love him, and so should everyone else! Â Fillion is charming and witty as Castle. Â Part of his charm comes from the fact that he’s a successful author (and he knows it), and yet he likes “slumming” with the police. Â His enthusiasm borders on the juvenile, yet it is somehow endearing.
Stana Katic plays Kate Beckett, the lead detective of the team Castle follows around. Â Katic isn’t as good as Fillion, but she plays the part well. Â There are two detectives who work under her–Javier Esposito, played by Jon Huertas, and Kevin Ryan, played by Seamus Dever. Â They make a good team, and contribute more humor to the show.
I find Castle to be an entertaining and light-hearted cop show. Â It’s refreshing to watch an episode after watching something heavier, like an episode of Breaking Bad.
