I just started watching this show in September. Now I have purchased all four seasons and will get the 5th. I certainly hope it will be renewed. I enjoy all aspects of the show. Is it perfect? No. But it’s certainly more fun and more interesting than any other show that I’ve watched lately. The characters are wonderful.

I’ve been a huge fan of Castle since it first aired. I honestly feel that season 5 has thus far been a better season overall than season 4. Season 5 has aired consistently excellent episodes that shake up the usual episode formula, and I wholeheartedly feel that Nathan Fillion deserves an Emmy for episodes “Target” and “Hunt”. Plus, I nearly laughed myself sick while watching “The Final Frontier” (the references to both Star Trek and Firefly nearly killed me!). I demand a season 6!!

I missed the first 2 seasons but watch all the reruns – I love this show. I watched Monday night with the episode of “Rear WIndow” – I was totally surprised by the ending, great job writers! This show keeps getting batter and better – looking for 6, 7, and 8 seasons! This show is the best – I don’t know what else to say.

Castle, without a doubt, delivers in the “entertainment” and “substance” categories (HUGE kudos to its writers, directors, and equally importantly, its down-to-earth and talented cast)! In a raging sea of “auto pilot” programming, Castle visits our homes on a weekly basis as a good friend does; one who stops by to say “Hello, how’ve you been?” and shares the serious and the facetious with us over a cup of coffee and some dessert perhaps. This hour-long visit ends in a warm hug, laughter/chuckles, and always with “You take care and I’ll see you next week.” So, alongside the savvy Beckett onion layer peelors and the incorrigible (yet loveable) Castle kindred spirits, a resounding YES! to a sixth season; and should Season Six be the last, let it be a hopeful and happy one!!!

“Castle” is one of the few TV shows worth following. The characters have become “family” to millions. Real events in America are depressing. We need “Castle” to have something to look forward to each week!
