  • Nathan Fillion given an opportunity to showcase his acting skills

    I've enjoyed Castle at a moderate level ... it's always worth a download and Fillion's a funny charismatic actor, but I know he can be so much more and this episode proved it. Anyone who's watched Firefly can attest that Fillion's Malcolm Reynolds was a protagonist with many levels ... something that Richard Castle has been sorely lacking. Castle's great: he's witty, charming and helps Beckett and co solve the case but that's pretty much it. BUT this episode, nailed it. Pretty much in the few minutes when Castle is left alone with the perp and he starts his speech about how he's the father, etc .. I figuratively had a geekgasm as he was channeling ol Mal' Reynolds (and probably a bit of Liam Neeson too). It was a great few min of TV that made me glad I stuck with Castle as long as I have. I just hope that the writers are able to utilize Fillion's skills some more
