Storyline

Murder mystery author Richard 'Rick' Castle publishes the book in which he kills off his bestseller series' hero, Derek Storm. On that very day, NYPD detective Kate Beckett questions him about two murders in the exact style of his novels, on a lawyer Fisk viz. social worker Alyson Tisdale. He's professionally flattered to have a copycat. Her boss, captain Roy Montgomery, accepts his help as case consultant and teams them up, the mayor being a fan puts him de facto in charge. More copy killing follows. The police simplistically arrest his fan Kyle Cabot, the first common link. Castle and his author friends decide he must keep investigating, on the assumption it's a motive cover-up, which he does brilliantly, as even Beckett must grudgingly admit. Written by KGF Vissers

Richard Castle: Looks like I have a fan.
Kate Beckett: Yeah, a really deranged fan.
Richard Castle: Oh, you don't look deranged to me.
Kate Beckett: [taken aback] What?
Richard Castle: "Hell Hath No Fury"? Angry Wiccans out for blood? Come on. Only hardcore Castle groupies read that one.

Pilot is good
10 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

The pilot manages to introduce several characters and set a background for Fillion's character extremely while keeping along a first murder plot. Both lead roles show extremely good chemistry, Nathan Fillion plays once again a cool character and manages to bring to the table that quirkiness that have made his characters so good in the past. His counterpart is not only pretty to look at but also provides a strong female role and not the standard damsel in distress. The pilot is promising: the writing is good for both plot and dialog, the cast is solid and the mandatory sexual tension flows really well with the witty dialog.
