Castle Review: May Fortune Guide Your Journey

by at . Comments

There are several reasons to love Castle.

You get the detective business, but it’s lighthearted. There are jokes and romances that other cop shows lack. In reality, Castle is one of a kind. And "The Final Frontier” was another hour of television that proved why. No other series could have pulled this off.

The Team Goes Sci-fi

Supernova Con. The weekly case took place at a sci-fi/comic book convention. A woman is murdered after working to bring back a canceled show by providing fan experiences. Not only did the case bring about some funny characters, but it was the ultimate nod to Firefly. 

Spacecraft crew fighting to survive? Check. Canceled after one season? Check. Mention of Joss Whedon? Check.

This was pretty much awesome. What made it even better was Beckett’s long standing obsession with the show. Did you see the picture of her dressed up as Lt. Chloe? Hot. Speaking of hot: Hello, Alexis!

Gabriel Winters: You Are The Man. We must give a shout out to Ed Quinn, who rocked as a Nebula 9 character. He was hilarious and provided one solid one-liner after another. (Check them out in our Castle Quotes section.)

Caskett Carries On. These two characters have developed such a fun relationship. Work and play has to be the best combination. It feels natural and is seriously enjoyable to watch. Was anyone else surprised at the fact that no one mentioned their relationship, considering they just found out? A little odd.

Beckett’s request to watch a Nebula 9 marathon with Castle in exchange for dressing up in her costume was great. How could you not adore this character even more after she showed those amazing legs up to her mask? 

Andrew Marlowe, week after week you continue to make this show so much fun.

Overall, a pretty fun episode - especially if you are a fanboy/girl, costume wearing comic book geek like most of us. Check back later this week for the Castle Round Table and don’t forget to hit up the comments to let us know what you thought of “The Final Frontier.”

Until next time Castle fans, remember: May fortune guide your journey.

Nice Farscape reference!


i looooooved this episode!!!!! It was so amazing! My fav scenes were Castle's reaction when he saw Alexis & Caskett scene at the end.
I'd like to see some sexy scenes between the two, they have such a great chemistry.


Such a fun episode.!
I loved the Lord of the Rings shoutout from Ryan!


After last week's depressing episode that almost made me cry, this was so relieving and purely fun to watch! The mystery, the fact that Kate was a fan of the flop series and why and oh, the last scene was just epic! Also shows a side of Kate that is not so serious.


I was all ready for a great hour of tv and as soon as Nathan Fillion said "shiny" I knew it would be! Not only were there tons of sci-fi mentions, but you can't talk about this episode without mentioning that Ed Quinn played Nathan Stark on Eureka and the girl who played Audrey is Erin Way who plays Cat on Alphas. So much geek! Loved it!


FUN. Just a fun hour !!! I like Jonathan Frakes as a director. Great work guys.


This rating and the How I Met Your Mother rating need switched. This episode was amazing and the HIMYM episode was garbage


Hilarious episode! Love every minute! It was great to see Armin Shimerman make a guest appearance!


another great episode it was fun from start to finish castle just seems to be getting better and better.
