Love this show. The chemistry between Beckett and Castle is awesome and I really enjoy the subtle humor. The chemistry with all the cast is great. When I miss a show, I feel as though I go through ‘Castle withdrawal’.
Please do NOT cancel this show!

This is a great show, excellent characters. I have caught up on the show even though I am in Mexico. I truely love it and would hate to see it cancelled. You should think about a 9 o’clock hour instead of 10. I too would love to see them get married and Kate to come a mother. There are so many story lines that this show can involve into.

Have watched and enjoyed Castle since that very first episode and quickly got addicted to the show. Love how Rick and Kate’s characters have evolved. The story line is great and one never knows what is going down with these two. One thing is for certain , Castle and Beckett bring out the romantic in all of us. Come on America… Lets keep on watching Castle, get those ratings up so that we do see a sixth season. This show has too much going for it . We all want to see if there will be wedding bells for Kate and Rick. Please , please do not cancel this show! Monday night will never be the same !!!!

I started watching Castle about a month and a half ago. I have already watched the previous seasons to get caught up. I love that Rick and Kate are a couple. So many shows shy away from putting characters together or they break them up. This show is now my favorite. I truly hope that Marlowe and the writers keep them together. I would like to see them eventually marry and have a baby. Instead of saying “i do” at the wedding, they could say “always”. I think it would be great to see Kate as mother of a Little Castle Baby. I hope they are ALWAYS together.

I got hooked on the reruns. Now I won’t miss and episode. I have watched NCIS from the beginning and love it. However, if given the choice of NCIS or Castle, I would watch Castle every time. I hope it runs for a long time.
