Nathan Fillion is brilliant as ABC's new world famous author-turned-pseudo-cop Richard Castle. Behind the veneer of an arrogant celebrity, who seems to have let dozens of best sellers and world acclaim go to his head, Castle is truly a kind-hearted man and a compassionate father. Besides writing, his favorite hobby seems to be irritating Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), the NYPD detective who was in charge of a investigating a string of copy-cat murders modeled after Castle's own murder mystery books. Since he's killed off the main character of his last series, Castle needs new inspiration for his next set of novels, and he finds his muse with the charming but difficult-to-crack detective. The chemistry between Fillion and Katic is astounding, leaving the audience with more to follow than just the murder cases. Unlike most criminal investigation shows, Castle has a heavy focus on humor and the strong development of its characters and their relationships. Not quite a drama and not quite a comedy, this primetime series has elements that appeal to any sensibility. The twisted murder storylines will keep you guessing for the full hour until the conclusion you never expected.

Bonus material for the DVD includes behind the scenes interviews with the stars, out takes, deleted scenes, and more. Strong first season. I'm greatly looking forward to watching this show thrive and burgeon into big-name status.

CASTLE is one hell of an entertaining piece of light, fluffy cop television. It's the perfect antidote to those who are wallowing in the dark sewers of cop shows like LAW AND ORDER SVU or CRIMINAL INTENT or the brilliant but extreme THE SHIELD. Creator Andrew Marlowe, perhaps best known as the screenwriter for AIR FORCE ONE, has created a very breezy and incredibly fun cop show that's primary purpose is to counter the altogether too intense police procedurals that the public seems to inhale like cigarette smoke (you know it's not good for you, but you can't help it). He's also added the perfect actor for a show like this: Nathan Fillion. Many people weren't familiar with Fillion's work until he became a cast member of the horrifically awful DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, but before that, he was a key player in what's known as The Whedonverse, starring in the all-too shortlived FIREFLY and also guest-starring in the final season of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. He was also featured in one of Whedon's more recent and brilliant creations, DR. HORRIBLE'S SING-ALONG BLOG, where he wonderfully plays a shallow, over-confident superhero. He also appeared in another VERY shortlived Fox television show called DRIVE, which was cut down before it could reach its potential. He's been featured in films like the FIREFLY sorta-sequel SERENITY, a wonderful indie splattergore comedy called SLITHER, and some unfortunate direct-to-DVD fare like WATER'S EDGE and WHITE NOISE 2: THE LIGHT. But as he proved with FIREFLY, he has more than enough talent and charisma to carry a show on his own if necessary (even though it wasn't necessary with how great FIREFLY was).

And that's very much the case with CASTLE. As mystery writer Richard Castle, this is his show.

Nathan Fillion is of, course, the main star attraction in Castle, and everything that has been said about him in the above reviews is absolutely spot on: he is wonderful in this roll he was born to play. But don't overlook Stana Katic. She is phenomenal. Her intensity is pitch perfect as a foil to Castle's bonhomie. He sparkles and she reacts, with humor or aggravation. She is intensely private; he is extremely open. His family is funny, loving, and endearing; she really has no one, except a distant, grieving father. She is all business, and he is ostensibly all pleasure. But, of course, he has depth. It is wonderful to see him get under her skin and help her to feel, and relax, while revealing his often hidden strength of character.

The camera loves Stana. She has an intensely, beautiful face and fine bone structure. The close ups of her interrogating a suspect or consoling a victim are like nothing else in the usual round up of television's female detectives. She grieves for the victim and slices the suspect with her clarity. Her eyes are luminous and reveal intelligence, and compassion, as well as grit and determination. Nathan's eyes are all twinkle, but awareness of the depth and sometimes despair in his "partner's" eyes is not far from the surface.

She is toughness and dedication to duty personified; he is not afraid to appear silly and shallow, traits he has perfected, with not too much depth ever expected of the playboy author.

The two of them are magnificent foils to each other; the stuff of good drama and comedy.

I never watch television. I'm something of a TV snob and the only show I ever watched "religiously" was "The West Wing" because I found it intellectually stimulating. When my mother raved about "Castle" I didn't take it too seriously because she is of the "American Idol" school of thought and watches whatever is on. Imagine my surprise when I found this show to be a deliciously witty, clever hour of television. The dialogue crackles and Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic have incredible chemistry. There's no hint of two-dimensional personalities on this show, and the one liners leave me laughing for days afterwards. "Castle" has wide appeal, and it's an all-around good show. There is no gratuitous violence, the writing is intelligent and sharp, and the actors are phenomenal. I'll be recommending this show to my TV snob and non-TV snob friends because in either case, "Castle" is a fun show for whomever watches it.
