Episodic character development but convincing acting, unauthentic dialogs, déjà vu but twisted enough story
4 February 2010 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The first impression is not always the most objective one but in this case I'm a bit disappointed by Beckett and Castle. In the pilot I found the mix between writing and investigation quite original but watching this episode was just entertaining and nothing more. The acting was good but the protagonists chemistry seemed forced and their dialogs weren't as spicy and funny as expected. In fact I worry that the upcoming episodes are just fillers. So I really hope the writers don't plan to use the same recipe but with a different story every time. In Nanny McDead the events weren't predictable but not surprising. Even Castle's story telling his new partners wasn't intriguing. I just didn't believe him because what he said wasn't fascinating nor thought out of the box. Despite all these cons from time to time I enjoyed watching them investigate because of some good elements like the outfit design and charming performers. But in the end I'll quickly forget that old Nanny story and really disliked the episodic format. I'm surprised the writers didn't focus on further developing the arc covered in the pilot, about a serial killer using Castle's novels as guidelines.
