Just... so... happy...



That entire episode was fantastic. From the first moment to Beckett's costume at the end...

Gettin' old, but still a hippie at heart...


Verrrry nice; and thanx for the catalyzer catch...you've got good eyes!!! I didn't catch the very first part, him getting dressed, so it was great to see it on Hulu, thanx for that, too!

I think the reference to "didn't you wear it 5 years ago?"--was to the BDM, not Firefly; wasn't that in 2004 or '05? Last time he wore it "officially", yes? Would make sense, if it was.

And "Feggin" was definitely a reference to "Fagan"--she said "I'm going Dickensian".

Bless Nathan...he HAD to know how many thousands of Browncoats would be waiting with baited breath--or imagine those who didn't KNOW, and the fantastic shock it must have given them!

Thank you ABC. (Maybe letters of thanx? I'm gonna.) We sure enjoyed it...sigh...

I gotta say . . . it was a nice intro. Nathan, as they say, has to be one of the biggest fans of his own show EVER! Which is extremely cool. And the fact that ABC allowed him and the producers to make such a lengthy reference is a testament to the good faith some folk can have.

The dialog between Castle and his daughter was awesome. And so spot on, regretably. We'd like to think that there's hope (AND THERE IS!!!! Heehee), but that hope is oh so slim. Time to move on? Great little tongue-in-cheek jab at the loyal, die hard fans of Firefly. And quite possibly to Nathan himself The writers HAD to know we'd all laugh, rolling on the floor, at that while simultaneously wiping a tear from the corner of our eye.

Kudos to Nathan. My respect for him just grew by leaps and bounds.

*********************************************

"It's okay! I'm a leaf on the wind!!!"
"What does that mean?!?!?!"



That sums up my wife's and my reaction perfectly. We were ROLLING, we were laughing so hard, just from giddiness, but at the same time it's bittersweet, too. But the dialog was just priceless. Huge props to Nathan for still loving his fans, and to ABC and the writers of the show for giving us such a great present. I loved the show already, and I *didn't* at first - the chemistry between Nathan and Stana Katic (Beckett) has really gotten good; before, I felt like he was carrying the show. Now, it feels like the cast and crew are REALLY starting to gel.

Put it this way: there are VERY few shows that I watch in real-time. Castle is one of them. I was all tuned in and ready - AND recording it - well before the show came on. It was ONE of my favorite shows before last night. It just moved way up the list, too. Yes, I'm that easy to please.

Good catch Mutt, wasn't that the name of Niska's viking type bodygaurd that Mal puts through the engine?

-Just another of the many, marvelously shiny winks for us. I'm fair certain I haven't "squeed" prior to this occasion, being a large semi-muscular man and all but I have no regerets on breaking that streak as I haven't laughed that hard or grinned this long for quite a while.

Hellz yeah for ABC bein this cool, maybe we should start sending them blue gloves but with little thank you notes attached!

-Mal, your dead army buddy's on the bridge!
-He ain't dead!
-...Oh.

I took "Crow" to be a reference to "The Crow" (comic book). There were lots and lots of references to lots and lots of things. In the first 10 minutes alone. It was generally allover great stuff.

I wonder if they've got a pool going to see how many references the fans will get. (If our Capn's smart he put his money on "all of them, in record time, and a couple that were accidental".)

How much do you want to bet someone's going to recognize Beckett's outfit as an obscure in-joke?

Poe: The Telltale Heart. Our first Murder Mystery Thriller. Did anyone else notice it was close to his posthumous belated funeral? (Normally that would be redundant and possibly ironic, in this case not so much.)

I have to go watch it again.

Just watched it again on hulu……hilarious!!

Don’t know if this was posted yet but Castle makes a reference to his daughter if she were going to name the egg Zach Eggfron. A little nod to Zach Efron who played young Simon in the “Safe” episode.

And the fun just keeps coming.

Good ep, lots of references to a lot of different shows/movies.

What about that dude who got sucked through the engine in The Train Job?

Just saw it on Hulu and it was.....shiny awesome!

Loved all the references. Does Nathan know us or what? Best opening scene, dialogue, FF music intro and BDM reference. No cows in space - Shindig episode. I watched the intro about a dozen times after I watched the episode - which BTW, was very good.

Brought a tear to my eye when Mal, er, Nathan burst through the door gun drawn. Almost expected a BWAH!

BTW we should send ABC and Nathan a thank you note. I know I'm going to.

"Shouldn't you get over it"

"But, I like it"

Classic.

Nathan posted the Easter Egg on Twitter and it makes sense considering he first mentioned it when Jewel was on the Castle set:

"It looks like @andreajean915 found the Easter Egg. Haven't checked everyone's guess but she's the first. It was... the CATALYZER. BSTL."

"Look closely, when Mal comes out the door- under the gun, under the boat, just to the right. It's a nothin' part, till ya need one."

"How did the catalyzer come to my possesion? I got it the same way Mal would. I stole it."

How brilliant was that.

The line "didn't you wear that 5 years ago" folLowed by a "So, I like it" absoulutly brilliant.

Still grinning now.

Was there a "Fagan and his crew" when they're trying to unload the Alliance stamped cargo and running down the list of who's left they can sell to?

Am I misremembering that?

Also: little sister's name was "Rosie". I almost squeed and then realized I was probably just suffering from ideations of reference or something. Pure coincidence, I'm sure. (Being called Rosie elsewhere both on the boards and off, despite that not being my name...)

There wasn't a Fagan, not in that scene at least. The other crews mentioned were Horowitz, the Holden boys, Gruvick, and Capshaw, along with Patience.

Yup, misremembered.

*edit*

Say, it just occurred to me... he ended up dressed as Poe (a writer) but he had the raven on his arm.
The raven quoth "nevermore" and the poem it was from was about mourning a dead love. Is it implying he's "moving on" as the daughter suggested? (Oh the levels upon levels you can read into things if you obsess over them..)
