I agree that this week's episode was a lot of fun. Finally, after the horrible Drive, Fillion is back in a series in which he can bring his considerable acting chops and charm to bear. I am also enjoying the beautiful Stana Katic as Detective Kate Beckett. She and Fillion have a lot of chemistry and I enjoy their scenes together.
The writing in this show is terrific. Some of the one liners have made me howl. For example in this week's show, one of the cops asks Castle if he had ever paid for sex and he asked if that should include his ex-wives.
The show has the weaknesses of all police procedurals, the most obvious being that even the smartest of miscreants always seems to stupidly confess in a way that conveniently advances the story the most in the least time. No matter, I can live with that if the writing and the performances continue to be as good as they were this week.
