7.21 In Plane Sight
It’s not often that Castle goes outside its comfort zone. And still less often that it does it well. But In Plane Sight was just such an outing, and a real treat for mystery fans.

Projects would be pitched (and subsequently produced) with sentences describing the movie as... "Die Hard" on a plane ("Executive Decision," "Passenger 57"), "Die Hard" in a tunnel ("Daylight"), "Die Hard" on a bus ("Speed"), and "Die Hard" in the White House ("White House Down").
