Theme Thursday - Castle

Castle

Nathan Fillion is currently starring in the ABC show, Castle. He plays a mystery novelist named Rick Castle, who hooks up with a police detective, Kate Beckett, to help inspire him in his creative writing. Although they are paired as many characters have been in the past – with the intent to have the two characters pair up romantically. I hope that they don’t do that in this instance since they don’t really have romantic chemistry but more of a brother/sister relationship. The tendency with television shows is to pair people up for sexual tension – no matter what. This should be avoided for this show.

The fabulous Susan Sullivan plays Castle’s mother and the talented Molly Quinn, plays his daughter Alexis Castle. The rest of the actors who play the co-workers of Beckett are well cast and bring a lot of humor to the show. If you haven’t had the opportunity to check this show out, you should – it keeps you from being bored.

As an aside, what is most important in relation to Mr. Fillion is the charity he co-founded, Kids Need to Read, which provides books for underfunded libraries. You can find more information out here .

Good take!

I've tried watching this show but I found it incredibly annoying, especially the relationship btw the two protagonists. I was curious mostly because I remember Susan Sullivan from "Days of Our Lives"...talk about dating myself.

I've watched it a few times. It was good but I just couldn't get into it.

I've never heard of this. Maybe it hasn't been syndicated in my country. :p

From your description of it, seems like a nice show to catch. :D

Jeff-
Joe knows that my top "freebie" is Shemar Moore followed closely by Wentworth Miller, Keanu Reeves, Jimmy Smits and Benjamin Bratt...sweet!!! Anyway, Joe wants me to kick Keanu to the curb...just can't do it!

Baino said...

Haven't heard of it either. Then we tend to get these good series much later when they're cheaper for the networks to buy. I'll keep my eyes peeled!
