Castle investigates a murder at the Sci-Fi Con...

but why is guest star Ed Quinn dressed in such a baggy costume?


In a surprising development, Fox has cut back on its order for the Becki Newton/Scott Foley comedy, The Goodwin Games, reducing the series frist season from thirteen to seven episodes and suddenly halting filming. Usually, that's a sign that the network doesn't have a lot of confidence in the show, but in this case there's a plausible alternative — with The Mindy Project getting a 26-episode season and Ben & Kate getting 19 episodes, Goodwin's first season was cut to match the needs of the Tuesday night lineup.

Is the sitcom spin-off dead? The failure of The Farm makes it look that way, especially since CBS doesn't seem to be looking to extend the life of its older hits with a Frasier-style (or Joey) spin-off.
