My New Favorite Show!

My wife and I love a mystery/detective shows that have a sense of humor while presenting a bonafide puzzle. I saw the ads for Castle and decided to take a look at it.

At first glance, the premise doesn't sound all that intriguing. A mystery writer get special permission to tag along with the NYPD well they do their job. Nothing really new there, Dennis Weaver fulfilled the same role in a short lives series called Stone back in the 1970s.

However, Castle runs as smoothly as a Swiss watch. Nathan Fillion plays bestselling crime novelist Richard Castle. He has a wealthy lifestyle, a teen daughter who's smart as a whip, and a mother that connives and manipulates on a daily basis.

Stana Katic plays Detective Kate Beckett, a tough as nails homicide investigator who turns out to be a perfect foil for Castle.

Granted, the series isn't even close to reality in the way Castle gets treated during an investigation, but the interaction between all the characters and the solution to the puzzles are really good. People don't watch these shows for a dose of reality. My wife and I want escapism, and we get it.

If you haven't seen the show, I'd suggest checking it out. Castle comes on Monday nights at 9 pm Central time. There will be only 10 shows this season, and we're halfway through them, but the first season DVD set will be offered in September.

I've been watching this show too. I think it's absolutely hilarious, and I love how Nathan Fillon plays his character. The only problem I have with it is that I ALWAYS can figure out whodunnit at least 20 minutes before the end, while I can't do it nearly as often with other crime dramas on TV. Glad to see there's at least one other (okay two, including Sherry) who watches that show.

Sorry man, un-Castle related comment:

I found you through the Ellenberg Agency website (fellow representee) and I loved the excerpt from Hellgate. I went right to my library's website and searched through your YA list, and ended up requesting the first Hunters book. Sounds very intriguing. Just the wild kind of stuff I like -- and it's YA!So yeah... I guess I'm just here to kind of introduce myself.

Sorry to be OT Mel,
Any chance there is another NCIS story from you coming our way?

I stumbled on your third book and I'm about to order the first two from Amazon.

Hi Mel,
I've grown to like the TV show "Castle". It's light escape entertainment and I like it because the main character is a writer. There's lively banter with the female lead and he's a good father character. It's sure a lot better than some of the weird stuff that's on TV nowadays. ha! Mommasan

I love this show! The interaction and chemistry between the cop and the writer is great.

I just read it will be coming back in the fall.

I look forward to more shows.
