What do you think? Do you still like the Castle TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a sixth season?

Finally got a decent show considering the crap that’s on tv. Cancel…whatever. A moron’s a moron. Castle’s a great show and has everything a great show should have. So…you do what you gotta do. Most of you in charge are idiots anyway.

Have a nice day and try not to stumble over your tongues.
Sincerely

McAlester, Ok.

Castle is the only show worth watching on ANY station. It has it all – kookieness to charm. I cannot remember a more entertaining show. Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic are the perfect TV couple. PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL THIS SHOW. We watch Castle on Monday nights and have never missed an episode. NO NEED TO START NOW!!!!!!!

Castle is entertainment! Reminiscent of Nick & Nora Charles…its classy, comedic and cool! Thank you ABC for giving us a show that just plain fun!

If the ratings are down, it might be because the quality of filming has fallen off. The acting and writing are superb, but there are times it looks like they’re filming by candlelight. I don’t know if this season is supposed to be “artsy” or “moody” what. It simply looks like very poor quality lighting as compared to previous seasons. Watch on ABC Monday nights & then watch the reruns on cable & you’ll see a major difference.

After all these years, I still don’t understand television. Castle has great viewership among the 49+ age group–the age group with buying power yet we are all but ignored. I LOVE Castle & think its mix of wonderful actor chemistry and writing make it one of the best on TV at the moment. Sure hope we get several more years to enjoy!

Castle is what keeps me alive and gets me through each week. I have stopped watching Revenge (too flashy, too unbelievable), NCIS has become boring, Bones should be dead and buried.
As far as I’m concerned, CASTLE is the only worthwhile show on TV – story-lines are plausible, action is credible, chemistry electrifying, Stana and Nathan, in particular, are outstanding along with the rest of the cast, Andrew and his writers still have the knack of keeping it real and interesting
Please do not cancel CASTLE. I do not know how I would cope without my weekly intake of CASTLE. I don’t relish the thought of withdrawing into a corner, howling my eyes out. Even as I write this now, my eyes are watering with a sense of grief, the pain is almost unbearable. There are still too many stories and more to develop between Stana and Nathan for this show to be cancelled
My vote – no season six, no more reason to live

Please do not cancel this show. I loved “Harry’ Law”, it’s gone, now I’m into Castle and there’s talk of cancelling it! There is so much garbage television, all the fake ” reality” shows, come on , leave us who like quality shows, something to watch, please!

I agree, if they cancel Caskett, I mean Castle, lol….that’s it. I will be done watching shows. It has everything I want in a good show. I just don’t see how they could cancel …after all we’ve been through…as Castle himself would say. It would be cruel to cancel it now!
