Product Description

Famous mystery novelist Richard Castle and NYPD Detective Kate Beckett return for the suspenseful Third Season of ABC's brilliantly funny series, CASTLE. Enjoy every inspired idea and flirtatious moment as this fiery duo solve the strangest homicides New York has to offer. It's the most entertaining season yet as Castle's wildly funny storytelling skills work their way into every case. Between his mixed-up partnership with Beckett and his relationships with his diva mother and his clever daughter, Alexis, Castle is always on his toes. Crime fighting has never been this much fun! Get on the beat and relive every wild and witty moment in this 5-disc DVD set.


Castle continues its strong run through its third season, mixing the grim work of the New York Police Department's homicide investigations with a light touch of humor based in its characters. The cast remains essentially the same: bestselling novelist Rick Castle (Nathan Fillion), who shadows Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) as research for his character Nikki Heat; bromantic detective partners Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas), Captain Montgomery (Ruben Santiago-Hudson), and medical examiner Lainie (Tamala Jones); and Castle's mother (Susan Sullivan) and daughter, Alexis (Molly Quinn). And while romance develops for a number of them, Castle and Beckett continue their interplay of flirtation mixed with exasperation. Add another character to the mix: the city of New York, which reveals its many sides--Central Park, the subway system, the bar and steampunk subcultures--in many of the weekly murders.

Castle might be best epitomized in consecutive midseason episodes: in the first, Laura Prepon guest-stars as actress Natalie Rhodes, who has been cast to play the big-screen version of Nikki Heat, and the cast's differing and revolving reactions to her are very funny. The following episode ratchets up the intensity in the newest development in the search for the killer of Beckett's mother. There's also a notable two-parter in which Castle and Beckett are trapped in a freezer as they try to find a dirty bomb somewhere in the city. Other guest stars include Lance Henriksen as an alien-abduction expert, Corbin Bernsen as a soap-opera star, Jane Seymour as a soap writer's mom, Adrian Pasdar as a Homeland Security agent, Bruce Davison as the DA, Michael McKean as a beauty-pageant sponsor, and Gene Simmons as himself. Also appearing are mystery writers Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly, who leave an empty place at Castle's poker table for the late Stephen J. Cannell. The core of the show, of course, is Castle and Beckett, from the opening of the season when Castle hasn't called or visited the department in months, to Beckett's complicated relationships with her original training officer, Royce (Jason Beghe), or her perpetually absent boyfriend. Then not long after one breathless moment in which it seems "Casckett" might become a reality, things come to a head in the season-ending cliffhanger. --David Horiuchi

I'm relatively new to Castle, as I just started watching last season. But it has rapidly become one of my favorite shows on television. There are so many elements that keep me glued to my tv week to week - from the palpable chemistry between Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion (Beckett and Castle, respectively), to the incredibly witty script, to the bro-mance between Detectives Ryan and Esposito. I believe that Season 3 is where this show really hit its stride - nearly every episode has the right amount of intrigue, intensity, and humor. For me, the best episodes of the season were "3XK" (episode 6), "Last Call" (episode 10), and "Knockdown" (episode13). Also, "Knockout", the season finale (which aired last night as of this writing) was one of the most gripping season finales I've seen of any show, period. I can't wait for Season 4!

If you like the old Howard Hawks screwball comedies, you'll love the dialogue. If you love crime drama, it'll keep you guessing (sometimes I'm still thinking it over AFTER the episode). If you like family moments, they're in there. And if it's romance you seek, well... it has that too. This is one of the most well written shows I've ever watched, full of great one-liners and profound subtext. And the entire cast does so much with each of their characters. No wonder it has such a loyal fan following. It's thoroughly entertaining, and definitely worth your time and money.

What a fantastic...wonderful show...It has everything...Comedy...Drama...Romance...The way that they are treating the romance between Castle and Beckett reminds me of another great show the "X-Files"...where the relationship between Mulder and Scully was brought along slow...where the longer they were together...the closer they became..."Castle" is by far my favorite show...I too can hardly wait for the 4th season to begin...

- Castle: "How did she die?"
- Lanie the medical examiner: "Stabbed in the back of the neck with an ice pick and then stuffed into the sofa."
- Castle: "So she didn't see that coming."

After eyeballing the hi-tech crime-solving equipment seen in shows like 24 and BONES, there's a cool, old-school quaintness to Detective Kate Beckett's murder board. To sort of piggyback on that observation, sometimes you can have all the fancy bells and whistles, but if you don't have that core foundation of a good cast with terrific chemistry, then you ain't got diddles. Regarding the palpable heat generated by Stana Katic and the awesomely awesome Nathan Fillion, only Boreanaz and Deschanel have got them beat. And shallow guy that I am, I admit that Stana Katic coming in to Season 3 with longer hair makes her look even more stunning. It's also nice to see her Detective Beckett loosening up and having more fun this season. You can only do "icy" so much.

Bestselling mystery novelist Rick Castle must have some kind of pull with New York City's mayor, because he's still going on extended ride alongs with the 12th Precinct, still in the inner circle of the 12th's best homicide detectives, still offering his outside-the-box insights on gruesome murders. Castle's writer's block - which is what led him to his association with NYPD - is long over. Castle has produced two recent best-sellers featuring Nikki Heat, his latest character and based on Detective Kate Beckett. You and me, we know Castle is only sticking around because of Beckett. And, really, with mad respect to Detectives Ryan and Esposito, two fantastic supporting characters, it's Castle and Beckett's interactions that keep me coming back.

I've been in love with this show since the day it premiered on ABC. This isn't your run-of-the-mill cop procedural. It's full of excitement, drama, mystery, witty banter, comedy, romance, family moments, and all-out fun. That's not to mention the amazingly talented and well-rounded cast that make it come alive on the screen. The writing is also top-notch, giving a realistic quality to the characters and helping the show to move smoothly. That's not to say the show hasn't had misses amongst its hits, especially this season, but as the show has grown and moved along, it has only gotten better.

This season, there was a lot more intensity and suspenseful drama than the first two seasons combined. Now, while it's always nice to have a light, fluffy episode (e.g. Almost Famous, Close Encounters of the Murderous Kind, and Poof, You're Dead), the action of these more intense, darker ones (e.g. 3XK, Knockdown, Setup/Countdown, Knockout) really picks the show up and shows its full potential. On top of being "bigger", the show has also kicked up its romance factor: Ryan proposing to his girlfriend Jenny in the middle of the precinct, Lanie and Esposito hooking up, Alexis getting a boyfriend, and the ever-growing relationship between Castle and Beckett (even with Beckett seeing someone else). Perhaps getting viewers used to the idea of romantic relationships for when Caskett becomes a reality? Just a thought. Though, those two have matured greatly together over this season, and I personally can't wait to see them as a couple. They've come so far and, as frustrating as the wait is, the writers have taken great care with getting them to that place together. This season has truly displayed that.
