Maybe it just how the shows are mixed? I've noticed a lot of variation when it comes to different programs and different channels.

I haven't watched Elementary, but I remember not liking the sound on The Mentalist, either. Of course, I won't have to worry about that one anymore

It's funny, usually the commercials sound fantastic, but as soon as the show comes back on, it's blah sounding.

Castle is the only ABC show i regularly watch so i can't comment on their other shows audio. but i have been watching Castle from its inception and i've noticed that the audio on this show has lost its punch/dynamics. the dialogue is fine but sound effects (especially low end) have lost their punch. for instance after the opening segment they have the show's graphic with the writer's pen coming down hitting the ground next to the name "Castle". it used to have a nice low end thud as the pen strikes the ground. it's now very anemic no matter how loud i turn it up.

I use wireless I.R. headphones for TV and find the almost all audio comes across excellent, same show over a surround has to much bass, if not killing dialogue sure hurts it.
The only show I ever dropped for sound alone is C.S.I. Miami. Movies on the other hand come across good to great on the same 7.1?

I wouldn't say the audio on Castle is bad (although it's not the greatest, either), but it's much quieter than other shows I watch.

Decent. Two Star Trek women represented on the show. One from ST:ENT and the other from STS9.

"What do you say Beckett. Wanna have a baby?" - Castle to Det. Beckett
"How Long have I been gone?" Alexis after arriving home and seeing Castle and Beckett w/ the baby - Castle - 11/25/13

Damn. I wish they would fix that by requiring white space before and after smilies.

"What do you say Beckett. Wanna have a baby?" - Castle to Det. Beckett
