Season 6 Opener for Castle  
Okay so season 5 ended with the proposal which I kind of figured would go one way and I was right. But the structure of the show in this episode, I didn't love. I'm really hoping things will go back the way it was but I'm going to talk a little more about that behind a spoiler cut.... but while I still love the cast and the show more or less... I don't love the new set up.
[Spoiler (click to open)]

So Beckett said yes to the proposal which I was happy about and I loved Castle's reasoning behind the proposal. Nothing to do with her getting a new job and more to do with he loves her and wants to be with her even if she has a new job and they don't see each other as much. Sweet.

But then Beckett has this new job which puts her in DC not NY. Okay you could almost deal with that except it means she has a new partner and team and while they seem great and work well together they aren't Castle, Ryan and Esposito. This is the team I love and want. My guess is that they will do something to change this and Beckett will go back to NY. This to mean seems a little sad because Beckett got this great opportunity and I think she can do it but what will happen is she gives it up... either that or she gets the axe because Castle stuck his nose into classified information.

Still, while I like that Beckett got some great opportunity I would love it if she were in NY. And I wouldn't mind if her "team" got some kind of great opportunity despite how unrealistic that would be.

Now there is the aspect of Castle being poisoned. Gosh, have they done something like this before? Seems like it. Or maybe it is just because they overdue this storyline on all shows. Either way, blah. This I could deal with because this is Caskett right? But for me Castle and Beckett come with Ryan and Esposito and Lani! I miss the TEAM.

I was too tired to watch it last night :D

Instead I opted for Sleepy Hollow and The Blacklist before I fell asleep.

Did you watch The Blacklist? It started with this episode too. I have to say, this one really got me interested from the start.

For some reason I'm still not convinced about Sleepy Hollow, even after the second episode. I DO really like Ichabot, but I'm not sure if he can pull the whole show for me. We'll see.

Castle and Bones have both been on shakey ground with me for a few seasons already. I think I even kicked Bones once and only started it back up because I was bored and had nothing else to watch anymore :s
Maybe it's because everyone you were hoping to get together already are and that excitement got sucked out of it because not it is as it is and nothing changes anymore. I don't know.
I'll still watch it, but probably not before I watched the 'interesting' stuff :D

I haven't watched The Blacklist and while it sounded a little interesting, the idea didn't really grab me.

I'm liking Sleepy Hollow and Ichabod. I'm not entirely sure about the show but I love the humor and the Supernatural like stories though it is a little more dark than Supernatural I think.

I have yet to ever watch Bones. I kind of want to but just never did.

I love Castle and haven't felt it was on shaky ground until the whole Special Agent Beckett thing. I don't like that they've disrupted the flow of the show with it. What about Ryan and Esposito?

I'm hoping things change as next weeks episode comes back to NY.

I really never liked the actor of the maincharacter EVER before :D But he's doing a great job on The Blacklist. I think it's a lot more interesting, in the sidestories and stuff than the general idea of the show makes it sound.

I think I'm getting into SleHo :D As in, I find enough stuff I like to keep watching. It's not one of those that I can't wait to see, but it's still got something :)

I actually liked the beginning of Castle's season, when I got around to watching it. I like that they still involved Ryan and Esposito. I was afraid we'd lose them. I just hope they really bring them back to NY for good because this ripped feeling isn't doing it for me in the long run.

James Spader. No, don't love him but I did like him in the movie Stargate. Hmmm.

After the first episode, I wanted to watch it as soon as possible but then the second episode was a bit of a let down so I don't know now. I'm hoping it gets better or at least maintains some interest.

I liked that Ryan and Esposito where on the episode but I didn't like that if felt like they weren't really part of the show.

Gotta watch last nights episode because they were in NY. Maybe I'll get to it tonight.

It really has an intriguing backstory going on with the girl's life. Just watched ep 3 last night.

We'll see when I get to it :D

I do agree that knowing more about the girls in Sleepy Hollow was good.
Phoenixburned_phoenix on October 23rd, 2013 08:33 am (UTC)
weren't we talking about The Blacklist? :D

But yeah, goes for SleHo too :D

We were but I don't know anything about it. Never seen it.

Yep, Castle has definitely gone downhill. They had some super moments and maybe could have done 4 seasons really well but that should have been the end. The fact that they need to change it up (and thus change locations and partners, and cast in general) means they've done everything they can do with it the way it was and it's time to say goodbye.

I watched about 3 episodes last season altogether (including the season finale sometime this summer when they had it on reruns) and was sorely disappointed. The spark is gone, the fun is mostly gone and it just feels like every other cop show now. *sigh*

See I was totally okay with it and felt it still had the same spark last year. I like their interactions and the relationships but they've changed it way too much this season for me.

Now having said that, I'm hoping they fix what they've done because otherwise I might not watch.

I think perhaps the show is destined to fail now. They've changed too much and they really can't go back - the spark that made it fun was more of the will they, won't they, and how do they keep it hidden from everyone. Everything has changed now and it isn't the same story.

I guess time will tell if the fanbase sticks with it or bails and then the show gets cancelled.

I was so excited for new Castle but I'm really not liking the new team, they are fine and all but there is just not enough Ryan and Espo and that makes me so sad. Castle cases are very formulaic, don't care about them most of the time, it's the team that I watch for and without them these 2 eps were kinda boring even though there was that big 'OMG CASTLE IS POISONED' thing. She needs to move back to NYC stat!! I need more than 2 scenes of Ryan and Espo!
Jill aka Josireesanwar on October 3rd, 2013 06:42 am (UTC)
Totally agree. I miss Ryan and Espo. They rounded out the team. I loved them. I'm hoping they bring things back around for this next episode.
