Uncle Phil was my favourite TV dad of all time. Thanks for everything, James Avery. Rest in Peace.

Hard to argue with Breaking Bad...but I will continue my championing of Hannibal LOL

Hugh Dancy on Hannibal.

Great recap! I do think that the Alexis stuff bogged down the season a little bit more, so I would give the season a B.

Best Episode: I enjoyed everything about "The Good, The Bad and The Baby." It was light-hearted Castle fun and we got some great relationship stuff.

Worst Episode: Agreed with Dreamworld. Not a bad episode, just the least well-executed of the season.

Disappointing Character & Most Annoying moments: Ugh - Alexis Castle and every scene she was in this season. Still not over her nonsense. She ruined a completely awesome Indiana Jones/Da Vinci Code homage.

Best Guest Star: Joshua Gomez as the time-traveller.

I'm completely okay with the level of PDA on the show (apart from Dreamworld where it was sorely lacking). I think their affection for each other is still quite obvious without them being touchy-feely. That being said, interrupted PDA is kind of an over-used trope.

I'm not quite convinced that we need closure on every single thing that's ever happened between them. I'd much rather watch them discuss their future than their past...and I only need to see them talk about the things that have implications for their future. While Castle's marriages definitely fall into that category, I don't think his books being a grieving tool for Beckett has the same weight. Same with the whole Hamptons thing. Maybe that's just me, but I personally don't need them to discuss everything.

Great review of the season - you nailed it.

I would rate it an A-....I was really annoyed by the Merlyn resurrection and Count Vertigo (which were all in the same episode, right?).

Most improved character would have to be Quentin Lance.

Peter Pan being Rumpelstiltskin's father on Once Upon A Time was my biggest shocker. That secret was very well kept, and really well played out by the show.

I'll have to agree with Tommy Merlyn being killed off, and add in the destruction of the Glades. Arrow definitely wasn't afraid to cross lines.

Brody's death on Homeland didn't surprise me at all. I was more surprised by Carrie's pregnancy.

Joyeful

Hannibal Lecter. He was coldly and chillingly manipulative, destroying Will's life without blinking an eye.

Joyeful

Out of the given choices, I'll have to definitely go with Castle and Beckett. Apart from those few episodes at the end of last season with the faux angst, they've been solid.

Joyeful

HANNIBAL. Hannibal, Hannibal, Hannibal. That show manages to be visually stunning yet horrifying, makes Hannibal Lecter appealing yet chilling, and...just somebody please help Will Graham...

Joyeful

Hmmm...interesting. I don't see them going that route at all. I think Rumpel will be back (somehow) before either Belle or Neal have a chance to get over their lost loves.
We shall see, though :)
