Castle Fans

Saturday, October 17, 2009

How many of you are fans of the show Castle? My husband and I love this show! Nathan Fillion is also the perfect person to play the main character, and he's really funny.

The basic premise is that the character, Richard Castle, is a best selling mystery author. He ends up getting to shadow some NYPD detectives, as they investigate homicides, for research for his new book. And his knowledge of writing and stories actually helps solve many of the murders.

There is sexual tension between Castle and the lead female detective, Kate Beckett. It's one of those love/hate relationships. She tries to act like she doesn't like him when she obviously does.

Some famous authors, such as James Patterson, have had cameos in the show too.

Well, in the show, Richard Castle has just written a new book in a new series (since he killed off the main character in his last series) and the book is just ready to be released. In it, the main character is based off the female detective he works with, and he inserts a lot of his humor and his experience from working with NYPD. In the book, a journalist gets to follow around the detective to research a story. This book is called Heat Wave. So my point... they actually released the book in real life!!! AND, it's "written" by Richard Castle and has Nathan Fillion's picture on the back like the author, and the bio is of the character in the show. It is actually the book the character in the show wrote, lol!! No clue who the actual writer is, but how clever is it that we, in real life, get to read the book too?? There is even a quote from James Patterson on the cover about how great the author is, lol!

So, of course, my husband and I had to get the book so we can read it and know what the characters in the show are reading! It's short... only about 200 pages... and the cover is sort of cheap looking in real life, but I think it will be really fun to read and I think it's such a great idea that the show did this!

We are HUGE, let me say it again, HUGE Castle fans! We still have last year's season on the DVR. Didn't know about the actual book. Very smart. When do we get to hear the review?

By the way, did you just pick up the book at a regular bookstore?

One of my favorite shows on TV right now. I keep meaning to pick up the book but haven't managed to do so quite yet. Can't wait to hear what you think of it.

It sounds like a fun show. I have not seen it. There are so many new shows out there, I can't keep up.

When is it on and what national station?

Alyssa -- I HOPE to get to this book soon, but I haven't even finished 1 book this month, so we'll see when I'm even able to get to it, lol! And yup, we picked it up at Barnes and Noble!

Ryan -- we just realized after the last episode that it was made into a real book! Hopefully I'll get around to it soon.

Michelle -- it's on ABC on Monday nights at I think 10. It's a great show, but I totally understand the not being able to keep up! We have so so many we are trying to keep up. Yay for DVR!

Julie -- ooh, I'll have to follow his twitter!

Cool! I haven't seen the show, but I am a definite Nathan Fillion/Firefly fan.

Laughing Stars - this is actually the only show I've seen him in (well, except for the small role he had in desperate housewives) but I love him! If you're a fan of his, I really think you'd like this show!
