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.

I know what will happen. They shot Kate and if (hopefully) they bring Castle back, they will have it where Kate lasped into a coma. She will however be alright. You see, I like to write too. That’s the way I would do it for a cliffhanger. Not so nice to do to the fans but it is nessesary. to keep them wanting more. Well done.

I get so tired of my favorite shows ending or main characters leaving the show? For some of us, our tv characters are very real and dear to us.

Is Kate really dead or can they revive her? Is this a cliff-hanger or is she going off the show and it will be completely different if continuing. It is our favorite show but with the daughter and Beckett leaving it sounds like it isn’t coming back.

This is a well written shows, with a great ensemble of actors, right amount of tension between two leads. How are you going to get yourself out keilling two main characters! You have just killed three major charcters!

LOVE THIS SHOW! Great blend of comedy and drama, hope it’s on for years, but please, keep the relationship the same between Castle and Beckett. As soon as they get romantically involved, the show will loose that romantic “tension”. Look what happend when the characters in “Moonlighting” got involved. The script when downhill and was cancelled soon after.

I totally agree! This is one of the best shows on and I sure hope they don’t mess with it.

castle is one of my current favorite TV show. Everyday plot with mystery and how they solve it, is very interesting. Still it feels some of the episodes were ended in a hurry,wish they could have continued for at least another episode with more twists and revealings.
