Product Description

Amazon.ca

One of the best shows to emerge midway through the 2008-2009 TV season, Castle has a cast and a sense of humor that set it apart from the normal police procedural. Nathan Fillion plays Rick Castle, a bestselling author of pulpy crime novels who's called in to assist the New York police when a serial killer begins committing copycat murders based on situations in his books. Castle helps crack the case, then decides to kill off his longtime character and create a new one, named "Nikki Heat," and research her by shadowing Det. Kate Beckett (Stana Katic). Much to her irritation, he pulls strings with the mayor's office to embed himself in the department, and helps her solve a wide range of whodunits, including a woman drowned in a bath tub full of motor oil, another frozen and suspended at a construction site, and a corpse stuck in a clothes dryer. To alleviate the grim proceedings, Fillion is in his element as the wisecracking Castle, while adding another ray of sunshine is Castle's impossibly likeable teenage daughter, Alexis (Molly Quinn), who lives with Castle and his mom (Susan Sullivan), a former Broadway star. Castle's circle of poker buddies includes veteran TV writer-producer Stephen J. Cannell and author James Patterson playing themselves. Like many (or most) he-and-she cop shows, there's an element of "Will they or won't they…?", but the beautiful Katic keeps Castle at bay by radiating cool. Clearly she's a woman who wants to separate herself from her emotionally draining and predominantly male job, so it makes it all the more enjoyable when she momentarily steps out of that mode, such as an impromptu appearance at his book signing. Much to the relief of Fillion fans who feared their man was a show killer after the aborted runs of such shows as Firefly and Drive, Castle was renewed for a second, full season. --David Horiuchi

Product Description

Get on the beat with a new hit drama. Loaded with provocative banter and a talented cast "too appealing to resist," says Glenn Garvin of the Miami Herald, CASTLE: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON is can't-miss entertainment. Rick Castle is a world-famous crime novelist whose stories come to life when a copycat killer follows his literary blueprint. Enlisted to help the NYPD stay a step ahead of the murderer, Castle realizes working with the police can also supply him with a slew of ideas for his next book. The relationship gets a little more complicated -- and a whole lot more fun -- when he is paired with the attractive Detective Beckett, who doesn't appreciate Castle's unorthodox style. Experience every witty, suspense-filled moment of the original series in this 3-disc DVD collection. Packed with never-before-seen bonus features, including a behind-the-scenes peek at the cast, this addictive series is a killer on DVD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Castle: Season one review Oct. 28 2009
Format:DVD
This is a quirky show that is fun to watch; the two characters, Rick Castle and Detective Becket have so much chemistry that you want to watch to see what they will do next. The writers throw in enough of a story that it is interesting, with dramatic moments, but you find yourself trying to solve the mystery of what happened and who did it with Castle. You will find the more episodes you watch, the more you will get into Castle's mind set, and try to solve the 'whodunit' along with him. The way the writers include Castle's teenage daughter and the issues she is dealing with, and how a single father tries to cope, and provide the guidance he needs to provide will be appealing to many age groups. His mother lives with them as well, and Susan Sullivan is incredible in this role. The cliffhanger at the end makes you go...hmmmm I wonder what will happen in season 2, just as it should. All the elements are here in this series - drama, humor, grief, sadness, all things that need to be in a hit TV show! A truly entertaining program to watch, and I highly recommend it.

It's like a screwball comedy with murder and mayhem! It's deceptively shallow,and incredibly deep, unbelievably sexy and wonderfully warm. A man surrounded by women but needing a deeper love than he has ever known, a love to release the pain he hides behind a smirk and throwaway charm. A woman surrounded by men but needing someone she can trust completely, who will not hurt her or smother her. Can't wait to have all the seasons! Can't wait to see Espisito and Ryan find their life mates. MJ.

5.0 out of 5 stars best show on TV June 20 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Castle has probably been my favorite show on TV for the past few seasons. The chemistry between Castle and detective Beckett is funny and cool and sexy. Each episode leaves you wanting more. Great supporting cast. You get the drama and the serious storylines, but mixed in with plenty of humour. Great all around TV show.

Purists might have a problem with the lack of protocol on this police procedural, but the main attraction is the chemistry between the two stars.

I was disappointed when I saw that there was only 10 episodes in the first season but they were all great. I couldn't wait to order the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Firefly it's not... July 7 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
But it is certainly a platform for Nathan Fillion to pick up and run with a new series. I love all the cast of character, especially Susan Sullivan as his mom, but Stana Katic (Beckett) is the one who really keeps him in line. If you loved Firefly, you'll love this. If you love police shows, you'll love this.
