I'm a huge fan of Castle.
I started watching it as an accident a few years ago, because it would come on immediately after another show I watched (which I'm not comfortable disclosing here). Anyway, it got to the point where I became a faithful viewer.
The show revolves around a handsome, charming superstar best-selling novelist, Richard Castle, who writes murder mysteries. Basically, a younger, hotter James Patterson. He gets permission from his buddy, the New York City mayor, to accompany the gorgeous, tough NYPD detective, Kate Beckett on her job. Together, they solve crimes and fall in love.
In other words, it's like a romantic comedy meets Law & Order.
I'm not gonna lie. The material is fluff. It's not a serious cop show. The characters are all very likable and quirky. The crimes always revolve around something fun or exotic or interesting. Like, murders happening at a science fiction convention, ballet company, or even in the 1940s. And the show pokes fun at pop culture phenoms like Kim Kardashian, Dancing with the Stars, and zombie walks.
But it is the two main actors which really make this show a must-see for me.
Nathan Fillion plays Castle, and I find him soooo sexy. In his role as the millionaire author single-father playboy, he is so cute and funny and charming. I have such a crush on this guy. I wouldn't mind spending my entire work day with him, that's for sure.
And as for Stana Katic, who plays Detective Beckett, let's just say I'm shocked this woman is real. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous, but in real-life, she is fluent in Serbian, French, English, and Italian. She plays the guitar. She's an environmental activist. She dabbles in archery. She has a beautiful singing voice. Oh, and she's a songwriter.
The chemistry between the two characters is electric. There's something special there. Like, you can tell the two must be friends in real life, because the warmth between them is delightfully genuine.
It's just such a good show.
