  • Hypocrites and a gun named Vera

    Every law drama that comes out of the US has the law enforcers breaking the law at various points, justifying it with the ideals of justice and doing what is right. Castle is no different. This makes shows like this, where they hold up an example of a bad cop who regularly breaks these rules to get the job done to try and differentiate themselves, as sounding quite hollow.

    Despite this, it's a good episode. Baldwin does well and it shows how Beckett and the team have protected Castle over the years. I like the way that they are interweaving and making the analogy of the rejection and then acceptance of Stanford with Castle's relationship with Beckett, not to mention his cheating with another partner. It's amusing how the children (Ryan and Esposito react to the cheating, . asking for more toys). A good insight into real life break ups.
  • Pilot?

    I always had the feeling that this was an inline pilot for a show for Baldwin, but I can't find anything that mentions it as such.
  • Headhunters

    I did not watch Firefly, so I did not appreciate the guest star in the way some did, but this was still a very good episode of Castle. A lot of fun with the different element, seeing Castle actually get involved in an altercation and an interesting case as well. While it was an entertaining hour, I do not want them to kill the Beckett character's believability by having her blush like a school girl over Castle.
  • Getting back on the track

    --caution, small spoilers inside, nothing on the main story though--

    All right, we're getting back on the right track, let's just hope it won't take too long to finally see Castle and Kate back on their old relation of complicity or even better, finally see them together.

    In the mean time, Castle tried to follow another detective and saw that it didn't work as well as he thought. Fillion and Baldwin are usually fun to watch together, as Firefly proved us, but the chemistry between those to wasn't as good as I expected, maybe because of Baldwin's character who wasn't very likable, even though it was great to see him. The episode was quite funny, especially Ryan and Esposito blackmailing Castle for free stuff as payback, and castle trying to act like a cop in the bar. I enjoyed it, so i'll give it a 7.5. I'll give an 8 or more when I see the old Castle I like back for good !
  • fun with Jayne

    I love this episode if only for Jayne :)
  • Funniest episode

    Adam Baldwin made this the funniest episode!

    Adam... best guest star in the series.
  • Best Episode in a long time

    When I heard Adam Baldwin is guest starring in this episode I knew that the chemistry between those two is going to be in the air, but I didn't expect it would be that funny.

    I have never laughed that much on any Castle episode. I mean, when Castle held the gun and shouted in the bar NPYD (Instead on NYPD) and he tried to catch the bad guy and held his legs and hit him with the bottle. Man this was hilarious.

    Adam is a cop with twisted ways and I really love his ways of torture, it makes the episode more exciting.

    I hope he comes more often.

    Beckett's jealousy and the way she talked to her shrink was interesting.

    I loved this episode and it deserves 10.
