Recap: Habeas Corpse

There’s always a moment of hesitation when it comes to Rob Hanning. The guy who brought us “Still” and one-half of “Veritas” has proven him a champ at some episodes while providing us with some duds in the past.

Recap: Once Upon a Time in the West

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.

Recap: Bad Santa

So much potential wasted on the development of a relationship that fizzled and the lack of general good storytelling sent this story into the basement.

Recap: I, Witness

The episode is better than "Private, Eye Caramba" but not nearly as good as "Castle, P.I." Unlike the previous episodes this season, this is the first episode I rewatched for the fun of it. And I felt better about it the second time around.

Recap: Clear & Present Danger

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.

Recap: The Wrong Stuff

The best way to describe this episode is part Alien versus Mission to Mars versus 2001: A Space Odyssey. I’m not a Firefly fan so I can’t speak if there were any references there or not.

Recap — Dead from New York

As the 150th episode, there was nothing special with no standout moments or anything to write home about. It was an episode that was par for the course for season that has had significant ups and downs in terms of episode quality.

Recap: The Time of Our Lives

Castle and Beckett may be married at last. While the episode delivered on the promise of them getting married, the story overall felt a bit off if not the standard gimmicky that's becoming a norm for the show this season. Here's to hoping the writers don't try melodrama when it comes to wedded bliss.

Recap: At Close Range

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.

Recap: Resurrection

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.
