series, Castle, is produced in 2009 by ABC Studios. It tells about a writer,
Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion), searching for an inspiration for his newest
book. Although, it is a bit harder for him to get along with Kate Beckett
(Stana Katic) - an NYPD’s homicide detective he has chosen as the muse. - As
time goes by, the two find themselves got romantically involved.
the first season, we are told how Castle can finally end-up with Beckett. The
first season itself doesn’t have a lot of episodes. However, it is ended with
Castle told Beckett about his discovery about Beckett’s mom’s murder case. The
second season is begun with Beckett’s disappointment towards Castle and how
Castle finally apologizes to her. In this season we also found Castle and
Beckett working in a case with a federal agency, the FBI.
that specific episode, “Tick, Tick, Tick”, we see a quite advanced technology
which can make most of the people amazed. This particular episode is also split
into two parts. The season two is ended with Beckett slowly get a boyfriend,
which make Castle jealous and a bit broken-hearted. At the very last episode,
Beckett ended her relationship and willing to tell Castle about her true
feelings. However, when she was about to spill it out, it is interrupted with
the entrance of Castle’s ex-wife.
season three is begun with Beckett’s disappointment to Castle again. Of course
we see Castle trying to apologize to her again. Again in this season, we see
Beckett and Castle working along with federal agency, but this time it’s DHS
(Department of Homeland Security). In the two-part episodes “Setup” and
“Countdown” we don’t find advance technology shown like what we saw in the
episode “Tick, Tick, Tick” from the previous season. However, we found Beckett
is again, doesn’t get along really well with other federal agent.
throughout the season three, the series tells us more about Beckett’s mom’s
murder case. Until the very last episode, Beckett was very close to the solution
of the case but she can’t go on again because of the key person, Capt.
Montgomery, - her own chief in the 12th Precinct is murdered. - Moreover,
in this very last episode, Castle told Beckett about his true feelings but
sadly, Beckett was already shot when Castle told her so.
on to season four, it begins with Beckett being carried to the hospital. A very
tense moment is described when Beckett was dying. Furthermore, the beginning of
this season is about Castle was disappointed to Beckett because she ignored him
for couple of months. Also in season four, we see that Beckett was recruited by
another federal agency, the CIA. Of course in that particular episode, Beckett
once again doesn’t get along with the agencies.
what I’ve written above, we can see that there are some kinds of pattern. For
people who haven’t watched it really seriously, they might feel bored. I think
the director made this kind of pattern to show about US strength seen from the
defense and military side. However, if we compare the series with any other
series which have the same genre, Castle is the most entertaining one. The
cases brought up are not too hard for common people to understand. What make it
even better are the jokes we heard when Castle started to explain his own
theory to solve a case. Another thing which makes people are willing to watch
the show is about the feelings which are always held by the couple.
those positive values in this series, it’s clear that Castle is a series which
is suitable for young adult aged 20-35. Which is why, this series has quite a
lot of loyal viewers throughout the US.
