There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Sorry, Nathan, but I won't miss it. Been running on fumes for a couple of years anyway.

I agree with ECGORDON. It lasted a couple of seasons too long.

Rumor is he'll be in the next Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

What Would Mal do ?


yep..long overdue.. love my captain, and have really enjoyed the Castle cast and guest stars through th years...but the show got lost and you could really tell when the old hand at the helm lost interest and the new gay guy directors took over...the entire flavor of the show and even how some of the cast were being directed to act was just wrong....

still.. Castle and Fillion got to poke it in the eye of the Fox execs that mucked up my Firefly

Probably for the best. The show hasn't really had any purpose of late. Kate solve the big mysteries in her life and they tried to tack on more, but it just didn't work.

As for "Castle", the show shoulda definitely ended after season 7. Hollander's Woods coulda easily been used as a dignified series finale. All major plots were resolved, and Castle even got an awards' banquet with all his friends and family. And it woulda been better than the show running out of gas, steam, and minor guest stars*. Sure, Jewel Staite just guested, and the episode was actually closer to a normal quality, but it was also forgettable (another episode about theatre?) and the killer was easily guessable. Maybe Nathan can do Alan Tudyk's "Con Man" more than part time, now.


*The guy who was the auctioneer killer from season 3 'Last Call', I spotted a few episodes ago driving Castle's British assistant who's name escapes me.

Well I finally caught up with the season. Talk about going out with a whimper. That last episode did not do the series justice at all IMO.

Select to view spoiler:


The whole season long mystery of locksat didn't even end up making sense. The guy in charge seemed to have no CIA background. How exactly did he end up in that position of power in the first place?

The little flash forward scene to give closure seemed silly too. I'd almost rather have it end in tragedy that some silly happy future. They should have just shot a funeral scene and ended it there.

I'm right there with ya, Zeek. Kind of a disappointing send off.

It's too bad they couldn't do a fully planned finale. My ideal one would have in it at some point a scene (preferably as a fade to black end) of a FUN* prolonged witty back and forth banter between Rick and Kate.

Select to view spoiler:


There are some obvious rookie tactical and survival faux pas in this one. ALL of the SWAT guys going through the front door of killer's house!? They all conveniently forgot houses have back doors.

After the life or death fight with the old lockset guy in the basement (he goes through the whole trouble of installing magnets in the ceiling, but then gets taken down melee style in not too much time), at no point when the guy is down do our heroes make sure he's dead, or if not, finish the job or make damn sure if he does get up he won't be able to do anything. I thought if anyone was gonna die it would

One thing that was great was Nathan's acting in the real interrogation scene. IMO that was pretty powerful. (It's just allergies...) Felt reminiscent of the ep when Alexis got kidnapped and he was asking if she got killed in the van.

I just recently watched "Drive" from my Amazon library, so when Castle squeezed that IV bag, he seemed to be channeling Alex Tully!

On such short notice, I wonder how many ammo crates Espo, Ryan and the backup brought with them?

As for the very end, because they tacked on the "Seven years later" thing on what was supposed to be a cliffhanger, it makes it a bit confusing. A)Is it real? B)Is it the most common denominator ideal future that Castle and Beckett are clinging to as their last thoughts? If 'B' then why put subtitles to it? Probably to much thinking for the writers could actually do with it.



*That thing that the show is supposed to be.

Caught the show when it first aired, and liked it. Stayed with it for a couple of seasons, but then missed some eps, caught up a bit in reruns, but after a while... I kinda got over the whole ' will they/ won't they ' routine. Been there, toooo many times.

So, have to ask... is impolite to bring up some of the not so happy moments between Nathan and Stana ?

Seems from those who claim to know, they were really tired of each other towards the end of the series. Word is, Nathan was a huge jerk to her, so much so it drove her to tears.

That don't sound like our Nathan. I'd hate for it to be true. Even if she turned out to be some shrew / diva, and he simply got tired of her, I'd still like to think he'd take the high road...

I don't know these folks. No interest to pry into their lives more than they're willing to share, but from all accounts I've seen / heard, Nathan wouldn't be that big of a jerk unless he was given cause... but what do I know.

Nathan reminds me of my husband in so many ways, except I'm not attracted to Nathan.

They are both joke-around guys, and that kind of thing can get INFURIATING when you are trying to get something done. He's been in the Biz a bit longer, so he prolly knows when you can push it with the job, but.... if I didn't love hubby, I'd have pushed him in a wood chipper years ago

That said, Stana looks like a stick in the mud, which probably didn't help. When Nathan was being interviewed years ago when Castle was in season one or two they asked him rapid fire questions and one was "Inara or Kate" and he said "INARA" and then he winced because he knew he messed up professionally and should have said "Kate" to promote the show. I knew right in that second there was something amiss there.

We'll probably never get the whole story and this is just a guess on my part, but honey you KNOW it takes two to tango.

It's just usually the guys fault in these matters, regardless of the facts. And Nathan sorta has a fun loving rep & all, I just found this a bit of an anomaly to all else I've heard. True measure of how good they are when their on screen chemistry is so convincing...

How aren't you attracted to Nathan ? I even have a bit of bro-mance crush on the guy.

In a totally straight and normal way, of course.

I don't know anything about the drama between Nathan and Stana, but I agree that she seems to be a stick in the mud. Anytime I've seen her interviewed she's extremely reserved and looks like she thinks through everything twice before saying a word. Not that she's a bad person, but I could see those personalities clashing. At the same time I've seen blooper reels where she's joking around on set. So, she's not totally straight laced.

The only other thing I have to go on is that when there was talk of continuing Castle without Kate the actress who played Castle's daughter said that Nathan IS Castle. I assume she's implying he is the show not just the character. It could be her trying to keep the show alive for a paycheck or it could be the kids deciding which parent they like more after the divorce.

Really unless we get some tell all interviews with the cast and crew I don't think we can say who was at fault in the tension between the two.

Hey, no martyring out here save it for RWED. I said it takes two to tango, didn't I?

As for Ms. Quinn, I was watching an episode about six months ago, and I had a flash, just for a second....That maybe they've dated... I'm sure people have thought it, but the picture in my head was pretty clear.
And she's 22 and a hottie and she's not as young as she looks, and he is a pretty fun guy.... I wouldn't blame him or her if they did.

As for the not attracted thing....You ever see a girl and just immediately label her friend material? He reminds me of the guys I hung with, but never would have dated. I'm sure he's a lot of fun. I like to see him get mad, but that speaks more to my sexual dichotomy, than it does HIM

It's possible, but I doubt it. She was pretty young when the show started and I remember an interview where Nathan said he was her surrogate father while she was on set for months at a time.

Granted relationships can change and I've heard of women with daddy complexes or whatever, but I like to think they just stuck to the dad/daughter style relationship.

I loved the first six seasons of "Castle" but hated the change in writers which altered the way the characters acted towards each other and then when they dreamt up that stupid and utterly unrealistic device for parting Castle and Kate while Kate does secret undercover work was not only dumb but boring. The series should have ended on a high before the new writing team messed it up.

As for "Con Man" I caught up with the first comic Spectrum #1 and loved it, also the artwork is pretty good too. In some comics you can hardly recognise the characters but this one has Nathan and Alan very well drawn and I like the story.
