Really really enjoyed season 1.

If you were the Alibi Channel and you'd paid a decent sum of money for a top rated US show to use as your flagship programme in an effort to boost ratings would you:

a.  Put on Season 2 during the dog-days of the Summer when people typically watch less TV and you'd be competing for viewers with a World Cup?

b.  Wait until September, when the days are getting shorter, people aren't going on holiday so much, they're watching TV in the evenings more and all the summer's major sporting events are over and you stand a far better chance of grabbing a bigger audience and higher advertising revenues?

I agree that it sucks to have to wait until September for Season 2 (and I'm speaking as someone who had watched S1 on DVD six months ago, so my wait between seasons is even longer) but I can fully understand Alibi's logic.

I never realised it was a 'short' season, how many episodes is season two?

24 eps in total, which means almost half a year's worth of weekly Castle goodness...

Ah its good to have Castle back.  Having watched Season 1 on DVD over a year ago its been a long old wait for S2 to hit UK TV screens, but well worth it.  Last night's opening ep had to be one of the most downright enjoyable hours of TV I've experienced in a while.  It might not rewrite the TV rulebook but its smartly written, witty and well acted...plus its got Nathan Fillion in it.  What more could you want?

I'm enjoying Season 2 a lot so far. I look forward to my hour of Castle everyweek as it's different from a lot of other shows on right now. Totally agree that it's smartly written and very witty. Never mind Nathan Fillion, what about Stana Katic?!

If it wasnt for fillion this show would be awful, 95% of the episodes are exactly the same but then again us cop shows usually are.

It does get interesting closer to the end of the 2nd season.

as for stana katic her performance in the spirit movie where she was so annoying has put me off her!!!

There is not such film as The Spirit. That is what I keep telling myself. It is the only way to scrub that abomination from my brain.

That said in season 3 where she has longer hair ...

So I've got about four of these stacked in my planner and decided I needed to try and make a dent. I watched one last night and it was the Haloween one where Castle wanted to dress up as Mal Reynolds in his brown coat. I thought that was fantastic

I'm still enjoying Castle but not quite as much as I enjoyed S1.  Maybe it was the fact that I watched S1 back to back on DVD rather than with weeklong breaks between eps, but I feel that the quality of the writing was higher then than in S2.  There have been some improvements, with Ryan & Esposito being given far more to do, but the Castle/Beckett banter seems to have less spark and the mysteries of the week are nowhere near as compelling.

It remains one of the best whodunnits on TV (knocking Bones, Lie To Me and all the other wannabes into a big cocked hat) but I can't help feeling that its lost a bit of its edge.

I'm not loving the new development, the show seems to lack the Castle/Beckett banter, I suppose it was always inevitable that someone would come along and make a move on Beckett but the show loses something in the process...

Season 2 wasn't that great to be honest, I got a bit fed up with it but season 3 is pretty good.

Ummmm....so I've heard, anyway.

Just watched the latest 'UFO' episode, fantastic fun and typical Castle. Season Three seems to have improved on Season Two without a doubt...

They did indeed. Loved the look on Castle's face afterwards. A picture tells a thousand words, etc.....

That was quite an emotional season finale from start to finish. Absolutely outstanding TV!

This is what I thought, fake death to draw the main bad guy out. Surely Kate is too lovely to die
