Good acting and charming protagonists but episodic neverending format, unoriginal Cluedo story and under used secondary characters
4 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Something about the performers, Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, and their characters, Richard Castle and Kate Beckett, convinced me to give Castle an other chance. In fact even if the previous episode, Nanny McDead, was bad, because of its old babysitter story, the relationship between Castle and Beckett is charming enough. In my pilot review I mentioned how their chemistry could be compared to Fox Mulder and Dana Scully's one from The X-Files. However even if I've only seen its pilot I think comparing them to Bones protagonists one would be more appropriate. It's both a pro and con because apparently the love birds have been singing for seasons now and nothing really happened between them.

It leads us to the shows episodic format and without a doubt my major complain about Castle. This time the character development was even cheaper than last time. It seems Beckett has a few secrets but nothing to intrigue enough the demanding viewer. As for the Cluedo story it was better than last time but even its numerous rebounds couldn't hide the fact that it wasn't original. A young man was killed and they investigate his friends, between two subliminal ads to YouTube and the iPhone. It requires more than good acting and funny lines to appeal the audience nowadays. I want to be puzzled. I need to be surprised by stunning and creative ideas. But Hedge Fund Homeboys didn't make it happen. Instead I thought the episodes could air one after an other without bringing anything knew to the TV world. It's watch and forget.

However I read the season 1 summaries and it seems a few other episodes are better but the show would be far much more interesting if it focused on Castle's career and Beckett's background. It would be great if we saw Castle writing about her, his muse, at the end of the day for example. Instead we had to hear his crying baby daughter talking about how much she was a liar. She's perfect and doesn't have issues. How boring ! The mother has potential but it seems she's just here to fill the gaps between two takes. Lose the family if you don't have anything interesting to film about it. And what about teamwork ? It's like if Beckett had no real support and it seems the so-called experts surrounded her don't know much about their respective fields.
