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.
