Not-So-Gentle (Re)Viewer: Castle

I'm sure most of you are aware of my opinion of television--and if you're not aware of it, click here.  I do, however, occasionally make exceptions to this rule if I find a show particularly entertaining.  Such seems to be the case for Castle, currently running on Monday nights on ABC.

Here's the short story, from the ABC website: "Richard 'Rick' Castle [Nathan Fillion], a rock star of the literary world, is suffering from a case of writers block after killing off the main character in his novels and is struggling to come up with a replacement. Castle had grown weary of having it all, “fame, fans and females”, when he was approached by the attractive Detective Kate Beckett [Stana Katic] of the NYPD to help catch the copy-cat killer staging murders based on scenes from his novels." 

While Castle's approach to crime-solving tends to be pretty entertaining and involve lots of play-on-words-humor, what finally captured my heart was this Tuesday's episode in which Castle and Beckett discover a body that has words written on it that used "your" instead of "you're."  Castle's response?  "Whoever killed her also murdered the English language."

Anyway, take it for what it is (an hour-long detective series on ABC) and you'll probably enjoy it, too.
