Castle shaking up the status quo appears to be paying off, judging by its recent fun and entertaining episodes...
This review contains spoilers.
7.11 Castle, P.I. & 7.12 Private Eye Caramba!
When last we left Kate and Rick, before the mid-winter hiatus, Castle had taken one of the more adventurous turns imaginable on the show. It had undermined its entire premise.
From the beginning, one of the more outrageous aspects of the series is the idea that, in the lawsuit-happy world of law enforcement and public safety, a writer would be given not just permission to do a long-term ride-along with the NYPD, but access to Leo databases, crime scene reports, personal information on private citizens—basically all the tools that allow what former NY mayor Bloomberg once called the “seventh biggest army in the world” to do its job.

Quick…name a favorable film where the landscape is run by (or at least partially include) the demographic of little people as part of the instrumental storyline? C’mon…it should not be that difficult, okay? If you want to mention say Darby O’Gill and the Little People then that would fine. How about Bad Santa or Poltergeist for that matter?

You know which camp you occupy, so there’s no excuse for misjudging this modest comedy that aims squarely below the belt and hits its mark with impressive regularity.
Permanently clad in her Olympic warm-up suit, Hope Annabelle Greggory (Rauch) took the Bronze medal by completing her gymnastics routine on a mangled Achilles heel. She’s like Kerri Strug, only with more obscenities and promiscuous sex. When Hope returned home to Smalltown, USA, she was hailed as a conquering hero, with a lifetime supply of free ice cream floats and primo marijuana at her disposal. »
