Storyline

A rock band finally reaches fame, but one of its members, James Swan is found murdered in his trailer. Due to the inevitably high media profile, the city orders full cooperation with a TV crew which was already filming the band in reality-style. That makes Javier show off, Kate camera shy, while Castle pulls the strings, almost like a director. The team finds conflicts within the band. Roadie Hank Rodgers also proves a link to John Campbell, from whose abusive cult Swan escaped and whom he recently met and paid a small fortune cash. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Zeke: [after being caught as the person who killed the victim by hitting him with a guitar] Do you know what it's like... to play all those crappy street fairs? Living on nothin' but Ramen noodles, sleeping in a van for 14 months? And then he calls me to his trailer after the show, and tells me that *I'm* out? I admit. I may not be the world's greatest bass player.
Richard Castle: [Gravely] No, but you sure can handle a guitar.
Zeke: Oh, c'mon, man! I didn't mean to kill him! We're finally about to hit it big, and he wants ...

Fifth season need to be reconsidered
13 November 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I couldn't watch more than four minutes, I forwarded to avoid the cameras but it is the whole episode, we liked this series in first four seasons, the fifth seasons is different, is that because you're looking for new fans, you might loss the old fans whom watched the whole first four seasons

what I like about this series is the mixture between the daily crime investigation and Kate's mother investigation and her feeling a bout her case, castle when he's supporting her in her case, I like to go with her mother case more than daily crimes, the daily crimes are repeated in different way, it would be more interested if the fifth was connected to the main case Kate's mother, the dangerous surrounding Kate's team, specially after we know who behind her mother murder, I thought that season would be about her investigation to collect info about the file they lost, Kate's team had been watching, the senator use his power to separate her away from the 12 th precinct and NY, or try to send her to somewhere she might get shot, Kate and the senator might meet together or she has to protect him, he might be a witness in a crime she investigates, or one of his family killed so Kate tries to find led to put him as only suspicious

I wish for you all the best, I really enjoy this series, this is first series I interestedly watch since long time and I watched more than once
