After three week hiatus, Castle returned with the first solo offering Chad Creasey. The promo for this that followed “The Wrong Stuff” didn’t do this episode any favors because almost immediately, people were moaning and groaning.
There is nothing beneficial about this episode other than it serves as a means to fulfill an episode order and to give the co-lead a few days off. The plot was weak and left a general distaste.
Overall “At Close Range” was one of the better one’s this season. It had a healthy dose of twists and turns that weren’t silly or complicated.
They're baaaaaaaaaack! "Resurrection" features the return of psycho killer duo of Dr. Kelly Nieman and Jerry Tyson. It was a highly dramatic episode that doesn't pull any punches.
Trying to get into this episode was like a long drive with a backseat driver at the end of the journey, you wanted to kill someone. I found myself wanting to fast forward through parts. I kept hoping I'd get a laugh or a smile. Beckett clearly wears the pants in the family. Maybe Luke should make a skirt for Castle.
Gone are the days of the smart and intelligent Castle stories. I miss those days where the cases made sense. Much like with the two preceding episodes, I didn’t hate it. I didn’t love it. The story didn’t work for me.
Overall, this was a well-rounded episode and a good way to kick off the season. The private investigator angle is a good way to go to keep Caskett working together even if they're working against each other.
Overall, this episode was well-rounded. It had a little bit of everything for the Castle fan. It was good to see Castle with kids—no doubt this will probably spark another discussion kids in the future.
ABC's Castle returns with an episode designed to re-launch the series as it heads into its seventh season. Only time will tell if the attempt to explore the title character came too late or not soon enough.
This was a "take it or leave it" episode. It wasn't nearly as good as "Castle, P.I." but it was still better than the first half of the season (thus far).
