Far-fetched premise with promise of more of the same
1 October 2014 | by (New York State, United States) – See all my reviews

The entire premise is very far-fetched and all the plot points with it. There's only one amusing line in the entire episode. And worst of all, it promises that we are only going to see much of the same for the rest of the season.

The main attraction of Castle (the show) is comedy; its snappy dialog, humorous situations, and exquisite comedic timing. The core cast just exudes comedic talent and shares wonderful chemistry. This episode tosses it all in the trash. The one amusing line delivered by Nathan Fillion was humorous because of his talented delivery.

For some bizarre reason I can't fathom, these breathless drama episodes garner higher ratings than the excellent standard episodes.

Overwrought drama is easy. Comedy is hard.
