Storyline

After four seasons of "will they" or "won't they," Richard Castle and Kate Beckett finally give in to their feelings for each other in the much anticipated Season 4 finale. Season 5 picks up on the proverbial morning after, with Castle and Beckett facing new questions -- Was this a one-time fling, or are they now a couple? But before they find the answers, they must take on the forces responsible for Beckett's mother's murder that now threaten Kate Beckett's life. Written by phch9678

Shark seems well in the past...
20 October 2012 | by tiercel1See all my reviews

If there was a jumping-the-shark moment, it wasn't the hookup... it happened last season when the will-they-or-won't-they "tension" became more important to the show than its wacky, unlikely police-procedural comedy.

I could have accepted more of a shift to serious drama (the conspiracy behind Beckett's mother's murder, a more serious relationship between Beckett and Castle), but the relationship issues played out more like painful awkward teenage angst than serious dramatic development.

I was hoping that just giving in and letting the leads hook up might let the show get past making Our Heroes act like insecure kids and either get back to the fun wacky silly that made the show fun... or go on to significant character development and more serious drama. Instead, the show and the season opens with such excruciating sophomoric awkwardness that subsequent episodes are languishing unwatched on our DVR.

I only got through last season through sheer inertia, watching because of how fun Castle had been through its first three seasons and hoping that the show would break out of its funk (one so bad that characters in the show were hanging a lampshade on the fact that leads were clearly, obviously, blatantly in love but required by plot to be unable to talk about it all season).

If there's not going to be any real character development, let Castle just be a fun, silly, wacky comedy. (Beckett and Castle could maintain essentially the same obviously-in-a-relationship badinage from the early seasons while BEING in a relationship, really.) If we are going to let characters actually take on lives of their own and grow, let that happen; let them act like actual adults in a relationship. But the "relationship" between the leads has gone from obvious wink-wink-nudge-nudge "coyness" to artificially maintaining "tension" by requiring monumental blind stupidity on the part of both leads.

Eventually I may give Castle another try, but a season starter that's put the entire series on hiatus again already deserves no better than 1/10 from me.
