I have been an ardent castle fan for two years now and castle is an integral part of my life. I have often wondered what is about this show that has such an effect.
Trueheart’s write ups perhaps do the maximum justice to the soul of the show. Castle is an experience unlike any other and though if you ask anyone what part of the show appeals to them the most while most may say the Castle-Beckett chemistry, I really can’t choose. Will castle really be the same without Alexis’s relationship whit her dad or perhaps Martha…. No and that’s where the answer lies.
The thing that sets castle apart is that it’s a perfect tapestry where all the components simple fit together to form what we see as the perfect picture.
But however I think it is the excellent writing that forms the backbone of this show. I am yet to come across another show where in some lines just stay etched in your mind or rather in your heart even after you have watched it. The reason behind this could be that they are so true and the fact that we can relate to them in our lives.
One such instance was in the episode “To Live and Die in LA” , the letter Royce writes to Kate and in the end he says “Risking our hearts is why we are alive. The last thing you want is to look back on your life and wonder if only….”. This has stayed with me and the only reason it has because its so true at so may levels.
I have always found the dialogues between Alexis and castle always sincere never too pompous or dramatic just right. And as far as the banter between Castle and Beckett is concerned … it has been hilarious, flirtatious and downright enjoyable.
In fact specially in seasons one and two when the general mood of the show was light as compared to the later seasons it was a delight to watch the both of them.
I hope the next season is light and fun as compared to season four. The summer break is almost killing me and I simply can’t wait any longer for season five to begin! Cheers!
