The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

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?

I love the show. I came into it late but it is one of the few that I watch that I really enjoy. Please keep it going. It is one of the few shows that does not focus on the female character dressing too sexy for her job. The character interactions are great. The plots are good. Of course, it is like all others where the two major chaacters are attracted to each other, fight it, then eventually come together. Then where do they go from there?

I wish it was on at 9pm on Mondays because it airs the exact same time as Hawaii Five 0. Certainly a conflict of interest because I too started watching on TNT and I wish I started watching it sooner. It’s fantastic.

Excellent Cast. The perfect mix of Mystery
and Subtle Humor. This show deserves more
accolades than it gets. Everything about this
show clicks. There is a huge demographic that
Is drawn to this show that the ratings haven’t
revealed. Renew for another many years.
