TV show description:
Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) is an incredibly famous mystery novelist who has become bored with his own success. His life starts to get interesting when he learns that a real-world copycat killer has started staging murder scenes based on his novels.

Rick is soon questioned by NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), a very bright and aggressive detective who keeps her investigations under a tight rein. Their styles instantly clash yet sparks begin to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Rick steps in to help Kate find the killer. Once that case is solved, the author decides to use her as the basis for a new book series.

Rick uses his connections to get permission to accompany Kate while she investigates other cases, much to her frequent irritation. But Kate has a reputation for looking for “freaky” cases so she needs all the help she can get.

Others on her team include Kate’s confidant, Medical Examiner Lanie Parish (Tamala Jones); sardonic Detective Javier Esposito (Jon Huertas); and Detective Kevin Ryan (Seamus Dever), a nice guy who’s always ready to offer obscure facts. Captain Roy Montgomery (Ruben Santiago-Hudson) is their boss who makes sure that Kate’s cases go smoothly, in spite of all of the strong personalities involved.

Rick’s mother is Martha Rodgers (Susan Sullivan), a diva and former Broadway actress, who still seeks the spotlight and often ends up getting involved with the police cases. Alexis (Molly Quinn) is Rick’s quick-witted and insightful teenage daughter who keeps her famous dad in line.

Rick and Kate build upon their new relationship as they look to solve strange homicides in New York — as much fun as one can have with death & murder.

This is a great show! It’s funny, offers suspense & mystery, entertaining, great actors. I don’t understand why the opinions of those over 49 don’t seem to be considered much when it comes to keeping good shows on the air. PLEASE DO NOT CANCEL!!

Episode 15, talk about heart failure, someone call 911 but she is ok, Earl

Where is the network’s head? Castle just voted best crime show on TV at the People’s Choice Awards. Also both the lead actress and lead actor voted favorites as well. Does the network care that people love this show and the people on it?

No if you are over 49, Earl

Does anyone at ABC or Disney read these comments?? Keep Castle, the police stories are great but I watch for the love story. Painfully I have watched every episode waiting to see Rick and Kate together alone, what a chemistry. I have ALL their shows on DVD and play them over and over only to see them exchange looks, dialog, touching and embraces. Where is her ring?? Stana says she can’t remember what finger it goes on, there is ONLY one place (this is only on the DVD season 6). Her eyes, smile and looks can melt ice among objects, I MUST watch the two of them. The program makes me laugh. gives me joy, causes me sadness, shows me there is hope and makes me cry. There is no other show like Castle, get them married, keep their love story going they are still young and love NEVER grows old as people do. Keep writing there are many ideas for many more shows, Earl

I watch every episode on tnt and it comes on at 5 oclock and I watch it till it goes off one right after another, I also watch the new ones on Monday night. The characters all compliment each other it has family friends and you cantbeat that. There is nothing about this show that is bad.

Keep this program.


Cindy September 24, 2014 at 4:27 pm

I am anxiously awaiting the news that there will be another season of Castle

Finally, a show that is well written and its characters are made for their respective roles. If ABC were to cancel this show it would nullify any chance of competing with CBS who, at present has a lock on prime time TV…e.g….NCIS;NCIS LA; Person of interest,, etc, all of which are real heavyweights and really have no competition for Tuesday evening primetime. These heavyweight shows require one to think instead of the mindless tripe that networks try to force feed the public.Trying to unseat them is a waste of time and money as they are all class acts and much appreciated by the viewing public.
If ABC and NBC would screen their programing and add shows on par with Castle like programming, I think they could retake a substantial portion of the market as long as they don’t try to go head to head with CBS’ Tuesday night lock.
Just a quick comparison….do you remember when the series finale was shown on “The Fugitive” starring Davis Janssen? Almost every TV set in America was tuned to that channel for the finale…don’t believe it?….check out the statistics!
Anyway….LONG LIVE CASTLE…one of the best in a long time…a TV show that actually requires one to think to really enjoy…But for goodness sakes ABC, please let them get married and continue to work together but keep the sparks flying between them….this cast has more than enough class to insure a long and successful run and a welcome relief from most of the mindless garbage that the networks are so insistent about airing to try desperately to garner higher ratings….CASTLE IS NOT BROKEN,,,,so please don’t try to fix it….

Please do not cancel CASTLE! This is the best show with parent teaching skills, good morals, and the fact that a mother/grandmother is part of the fabric of this show. There are so many families made up of single parents, children and grandmother these days; it’s important to see this kind of interaction. I love this show and would be so disappointed to see it canceled!


linda September 2, 2014 at 12:19 am

Why do show biz people do this? I finally have a show with class acts kind of people and terrific story lines and top it off by knowing “Castle” could have all ages watch doesn’t come around but once in a life time. Don’t cancel it. Hope to hear soon about a new season.


MJ July 23, 2014 at 9:04 pm

love, love, love this show! It is funny and intelligent.


Claudia April 24, 2014 at 7:21 pm

I love Castle, haven’t missed a show, but I do wish Castle would lose the weight he has gained through out the series, he needs to look good for Kate, who is model material.
When they walk together, he really looks frompy and he can’t close his jacket any more.

But I love him anyway. Will never stop watching till it is cancelled.


Danni April 13, 2014 at 6:39 pm
