Order of magnitude
10 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed Castle from the beginning, mainly for the interactions between the characters. Tonight's episode, Kick the Ballistics, raised that by at least one order of magnitude.

At first viewing, it was flawless, flowing from point to point with seamless logic, each point expanding its scope until reaching the point that brother was willing to kill brother in defense of the clan, the Patriarchy, echoing not only the fundament of Chinese culture but of any clan-based, tribal culture that places the Patriarchy above the welfare of any member of the clan itself, except, of course, the specific Patriarch himself.

Don't know if this is a spoiler but not taking any chances and, while the ideological point might sound like I'm imposing my personal bias on the show, I'm not. That point develops from the finding of the body to scene of final confrontation organically, revealing a script that is masterful, tight and manages to retain those character interactions, actually raising them, like the plot, to a new level.

In other words: WOW!
