In the episode "The Final Frontier," the evil space creatures are called "Creavers." In Firefly
(2002), the evil characters are the "Reavers." Castle also teases Beckett that he doesn't understand her fascination with a show that was on for "one season." Firefly was on for one season and has a huge following at comic book conventions all over the country. See more
We see the Castle constantly ask the detectives working with him (or the detectives themselves) to put out APB's (All Points Bulletins) or BOLOs (Be On the Look Out) to bring suspects and witnesses in. When found NYPD just walk up to people and place them in the squad car, taking them to the station for the CSI's to interview even though it's pretty clear they didn't want to come. If there is no probable cause for an arrest or an active arrest warrant, the police can't make you go anywhere against your will. Once in a while, a wealthy or educated person will assert this and ask a lawyer to be present but this is rare. See more
