The FBI commandeers the NYPD detectives for little more than leg work after a bomb explodes during an anti-globalist demonstration. Castle is asked by Captain Gates to help out by using his speed-reading ability and attention to detail to sifting through mountains of witness depositions. This helps the 12th precinct team get on the right track after the FBI concentrates on the wrong suspect. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


The "sinning by silence" quote mentioned by Levine and Beckett refers to a line by Ella Wheeler Wilcox, in the 1914 poem 'Protest' (from 'Poems of Problems'): "To sin by silence when they should protest makes cowards out of men." It was wrongly attributed to Lincoln by Gen Douglas MacArthur in 1950, paraphrased in the form Beckett uses (dropping the word "out"), although the poem was published 49 years after Lincoln died.

The GPS data from a cell phone is not accurate enough to create the map of red dots that Captain Gates shows the team. Not only would the data be too vague to show the victims locations, it would also have been unable to show their movements to the degree shown. See more »

[crowd chanting 'Talk over Wall Street!' while reporter sets up camera shot]
Leann West: Make sure you get the crowd in the background, Mark.
Mark: Another shot of you and the chanting masses. I'm so over this protest.
Leann West: Next time, we'll do a piece on Brazilian runway models. I promise.
Mark: Gonna hold you to that. All right, let's roll this puppy.

I really like it very very good
14 January 2013 | by ubisofespamSee all my reviews

I saw the frist episode of Castle two years ago.I think it's very brilliant because the protagonist nice and all the story are very interesting and well done.I also think the character of Beckett is very good.Tey are very funny,there isn't too much violence and there are some funny scenes with jokes and comic sketch's.I think is also good the relationship between Castle and his daughter.He tries to be a good father, but He also worries for his daughter and the relationship is very funny.I also think that the story between Castle and Beckett is realistic.I really liked this series i think is the best i've ever seen.I didn't liked some episodes but just a few.I very like Castle and I don't forget one episode of it.Only thing that i don't like is that there isn't enough action.
