i like this show but feel it has lost is way in season 3 rick castle is no longer the playboy womaniser who has better ideas and contects than the cops, hes now just a sidekick. he doesn't play cards now doesn't see the mayor. Lannie hardly appears in the series anymore as Becket's friend and coroner. also Becket her self is no longer the damaged loner cop. she just solves crimes alegidly has a boyfrind now and comes to work like shes just come out of a fashion shoot.
they seam to have even dispensed with the whole reason hes about in the first place him writing a new book. its just developed in to a crime of the week series and seams too far dragged out for a 22 episode run
