Wow, this a story arc in Castle. It was Rick who disappeared and came back with amnesia, though.

This is a show straight away is on rocky ground. The plot of someone being kept for 6 years just feels ridiculous for what’s to follow and in truth you just can’t shake it throughout the whole season which spoils it somewhat. But if you can just let it go, this show really kicks in from episode 4 and the pace really picks up and becomes quite enjoyable and well worth watching as stana katic performance is excellent.

An unsolvable puzzle. Great acting. Interesting germ of an idea but it did what I most dislike in a mystery, it gave us [spoiler] lots of false leads and resolve it with something unforeseeable (something that I never forgave in the latter writings of Agatha Christie) [/spoiler]. Because of that, I gave the first series a 7.5 (just good) out of 10 (it was subsequently renewed for two more season as it rated in Amazons Top Ten). After watching the second season (which had a ridiculously predictable plot) I have reduced my rating to 5 (meh) out of 10, which grieves me because I think Stana Katic was wonderful in CASTLE and I like to support Canadian talent, especially when they invest back into the industry in producing, writing and soundtrack.

watched 3 eps today and got bored asf!

I don't think I've ever seen a more stupid series. That's 10 hours of my life I will **NEVER** get back. Every episode (and I do mean **EVERY** episode) contained the exact same troupes "No one can see the bad guy but me" and "Everyone around the protagonist is a complete idiot and can't figure out basic common sense principles". And then in the last 10 minutes of the last episode, the main character is _magically_ cleared of all suspicion and her innocence is delivered in exposition. Get the F**k out of here... To suggest that hollyweird has taken a down-turn is putting it lightly. Do yourself a favor - avoid this one. Like seriously

This is a pretty good series. It seems to change direction and tone a bit each season which is ok, but it does still have an overriding arc. In Season 3 the action is really kicked up a notch and Stana becomes a female version of Wick.

avatar

After season 2 and 3 I am soooooo glad that I somehow got through season 1 and wanted to see more. I'm not a fan of action based movies/shows but this one is changing my likes for sure. Badass woman but she makes mistakes, wrong assumptions - definitely not perfect - romance is so messy, yet she can be a happy fluff at times which is so great and so human. By 3rd season it's no more shocking that there is always someone who betrays FBI and I really don't know how they still operate but it still can be unpredictable. Already can't wait for more.

avatar

I tried for the third time to watch this and can't barely go through an episode... Yes it's that boring.

avatar

It would help if you could get the date and time right, up here in Canada. A channel? A time? I use this app to help organize my shows. This one has never gotten this show, right! Good thing I can use, PVR, but should not have too. Now on to the show, I expect s huge come back with her in any show, sadly, only episode 1 was. Giving season 2 a chance. We will see.

Love the story, it's amazing, but I really must commend the acting. It's simply brilliant! And I really like seeing Stana in more serious role.
