<I>Castle</I> Season Premiere: It’s Enough For Now… But Just Barely

Castle ended last season with some pretty awesome twists: the beloved Captain who always seemed like a straight arrow was involved in a major corruption ring and then sacrificed himself in order to save Kate's life. But at his funeral, a sniper shot Kate and Castle tried to get her out the way, but was too late. So he professed his love instead. For a show that usually consists of light-hearted banter with some grisly cases, this was pretty heavy stuff. So I had high expectations of the premiere... and they weren't exactly met.

Murder, He Wrote: The Case of <i>Castle</i> v. Angela Lansbury

When we heard the pitch for Nathan Fillion's new TV show Castle -- mystery writer helps police solve crimes -- we immediately thought of the long-running Angela Lansbury series Murder, She Wrote, which had a similar premise. Hell, even Fillion himself makes the comparison, although ABC apparently told him not to, probably because it makes it sound like a show for 80-year-olds. We've seen a couple episodes of the show by now, and while it probably has more in common with current series like Bones and The Mentalist, there are certainly a few similarities between Castle and Murder She Wrote. We decided to look at just the facts, ma'am, on a case-by-case basis and see if the comparison is justified.

TWoP 10: Burning Questions About Fall 2012 TV

The insanity of Fall TV is in full swing, and while we're busy judging shows as a whole, a lot of the new and returning shows really have us puzzled with some of the unusual choices they are making. We'll likely never get these answers, but we pose the questions that really have us stumped.
