Just discovered this series three weeks ago. I have replayed the entire five seasons at least three times since. Wonderful, wonderful show and I really hope that it does not get cancelled. I view the current episodes via HuluPlus.

Please don’t cancel Castle. The show is very entertaining. It seems that many people
don’t understand the show. However, if they keep an open mind it’s about everyday relationship and life. I simply love the show. Castle reminds me of my better halIf
and Beckett reminds me of me. Hope it is not cancelled. I will not know what to watch
on TV again. Possibly the news.

Please don’t drop Castle. It is the only series I love to watch anymore. He is gorgeous and she is beautiful. You watch chemistry in their faces. I haven’t seen anything as close to “Lois & Clark Adventures” with Dean and Teri till Castle. All these years I have loved only Them and along comes Castle. I love the show! Great producing & directing!
