I liked the episode, thought it was really funny. What I don't understand is why they used a hundred simultaneous multiple camera-angles. Seriously, no camera-man was seen (one was heard) and a documentary, especially about a beginning band, really won't have more than one camera pointing at an action at the same time.

I am with Mary and Josie on this one, this episode was embarrassingly bad. All the characters mugging for the camera like they'd never seen one before, and all the over-the-top scene-chewing by Esposito and Castle was just AWFUL.
I mean, I love this show generally, and I have watched every episode with growing affection for the characters, but I cannot understand WHY the producers of the show would feel the need to show each character at their worst, most attention-grabbing,narcissistic selves. And Gates was particularly annoying, with her lies about always being there for her detectives and all that other crap she was spewing...it was terrible. It was like watching bad vaudville comedians who aren't funny, just vulgar. Embarrassing! Please don't go this ever again, producers, or you will lose your fan base!

I liked the episode, it was different. From Espy's great singing to Lainie's hamming it up, to Beckett's sassyness. It showed a another side of them.

I too have been a Castle fan from episode One (Firefly fan also) and I have to agree with most everyone above....I understand the writers trying something different, but I was VERY uncomfortable watching all of them preen for the camera. Beckett was the only one who was sort of normal and professional. I imagine that Castle might flirt with the camera a little bit, but I don't think that he would go to the extent that he did in the show and I REALLY don't think Gates would have acted that way. Since she resents having orders to tolerate Castle, she would also resent this intrusion into her domain and I imagine would very stiffly welcome the crew to the precinct and offer cooperation, but only because she was ordered to.And the ending....seemed kind of rude that she would lock them into a closet when she just finished thanking them for editing out the scene with her and Castle that would have given their relationship away to Gates.

I JOIN THE MAJORITY OF COMMENTS THAT ARE UNHAPPY WITH THIS WEEKS FORMAT. OTHER TV SERIES HAVE DONE IT AND THEY ALL DETRACT FROM THE STORY AND CHARACTERS IN THE SHOW. "CASTLE"IS THE NUMBER ONE DRAMA/COMEDY ON TELEVISION IN MY OPINION. THE CASTING COULD NOT BE BETTER, AND THE "ON SCREEN" ATTRACTION BETWEEN BECKET AND CASTLE IS THE MOST BELIEVABLE OF ANY PAIR I CAN REMEMBER, AND THEIR BEDROOM SCENES ARE THE ABSOLUTE "HOTTEST" WITHOUT CROSSING THE LINE INTO SOFT PORN. THEY ARE COMPLETELY BELIEVABLE AS TWO PEOPLE IN LOVE , MAKING LOVE.

Not my favourite episode, not even remotely close to my favourites. Still fun to watch though. I loved how Beckett was annoyed all the time, she's perfect.

Basically everything with Esposito and Ryan was awesome, I love those guys.

Guys - just a suggestion to the show's producers - why not do crossovers ? Since Castle is a police procedural at the core, why not a crossover with other popular tv shows like Grimm, NCIS, or even Hawaii Five-0... Think it'll be a blast with Kate interacting with Gibbs or DiNozzo (NCIS), or with Mcgarett (5-0), or det Nick Burkhardt (Grimm). To make it spicy, a love angle could be developed between tv characters- a first in network tv....

I absolutely love "Castle" but was disappointed by this episode - I thought it was silly actually. I did not like how the characters acted or how they kept looking at the camera. "Castle" is perfection - why mess with the best show on TV???

I am addicted to Castle and I have watched all seasons several times. This show makes an old lady feel giddy and laugh out loud every week.Love the Beckett and Castle relationship but would like to see more physicality. However I felt Swan Song was not the caliber of greatness we are use to from Andrew Marlowe and CREW. Give us more Beckett and Castle LOVE!!!

Really showcased how seriously annoying, shallow and grasping the Gates character has become. All the mugging was a bit over the top and didn't enhance the characters any. Wish the writers would get over their "let's-do-something-different"(that really ISN'T different) schtick and get back to basics.
