DVD Review: CASTLE – Season two

Buena Vista Home EntertainmentRelease date: Sept 21, 2010MSRP: $45.99For those that are unfamilar with the show, Rick Castle is a crime writer with a severe case of arrested development. He is wildy famous and uses his conections with the Mayor to get permission to trail homicide detective Kate Becket around for research. He bases his new character, Nikki Heat, on Becket, much to her consternation. And while Castle drives her nuts, she is secretly a big fan of his books. They exchange barbs while fighting crimes.At times, CASTLE seriously tests my ability to suspend my disbelief. In BOOM!, we see Becket survive a bomb explosion by hiding in...

OZ’s Lee Tergesen slated for CASTLE.

This has me pumped:The Ausello Files is reporting that Lee Tergesen (GENERATION KILL, OZ) will be appearing this season on CASTLE. Lee was amazing as Tobias Beecher on OZ and also starred in David Simon’s HBO miniseries GENERATION KILL.According to TAF, Lee will play Gates, a shrewd, hardened, and violent felon who becomes the prime suspect in this season’s big “3XK” serial-killer investigation.

Season Finale Reaction: CASTLE

Jeremy asked for my reactions to several crime show season finales as well as my thoughts on where the shows might go from here.The second season finale for Castle aired May 17. I don’t get to watch Castle as regularly as some shows, but I have watched enough to know that for a chunk of the season, Beckett has been dating fellow cop Tom Demming (Michael Trucco), and in the finale, Castle seemed to realize the relationship was getting serious. Yes, there was a main plot involving a spy game, but I cared more about the Castle/Beckett relationship.So Castle was past deadline on his book, and his writer friends (Cannell, Connelly, and...
