Nathan Fillion is back on TV and for the first time in a long time on of his shows was not cancelled out the first season and is now getting a second season. Castle on ABC, starts Fillion as Richard Castle a mystery writer who now shadows the NYPD team lead by Detective Beckett (Stana Katic) for a series of novels he is writing.
The series which started last season did pretty well coming out of Dancing with the Stars and garnered a new season. I enjoyed the series very much last year thanks to the chemistry between the leads Beckett and Castle. Also,the show shows Castle’s personal lives with his mother (Susan Sullivan) and daughter (Molly Quinn) who are both very funny but grounded.
The season premiere is strong thanks to some great humor from Castle and a wacky case of the week. Also, Beckett has a hot awesome scene in the last 10 minutes which offers some great start to the season’s overarching story.
The strength of Castle is the mixture of humor and drama. All of the scenes seem to be dramatic but always take a comedic turn when needed. Plus, tonight’s episode brings back the writers poker table with some very famous authors playing themselves. Look for that.
I highly recommended you check out Castle tonight at 10/9c on ABC. You can jump right in and I think you will really enjoy it!
Check out this preview for tonight’s premiere.
