TV Show Worth Watching - Castle

Castle is a great lighthearted and entertaining murder mystery show on ABC starring Nathan Fillion (of Firefly fane) & Stana Katic.

Nathan Fillion is Richard Castle a mystery writer who tags along with Stana Katic as Detective Kate Beckett as they solve a variety of murder mysteries (Castle and Beckett - get the literary reference?).

I'm still waiting for a bad guy in show to quip:

Will no one rid me of this troublesome detective?

Great show, and Fillion is at the top of his game and delivers in the role with well timed humor, smarts and style. If you liked him in Firefly or Drive, you'll really like him in this role.

Stana Katic is also excellent in her role as the detective that has to constantly put up with Castle following her around on cases and his dry humor. She delivers her lines perfectly and has some great expressions in reaction to what Fillion does.

Well worth watching, its on ABC at 10 pm which is why DVRs were made. Hopefully because it is on ABC it will avoid the Fox / Fillion curse. (Anytime Fillion stars in a great show on Fox they cancel it (methinks someone has it in for him and Joss Wheadon over there), Having the show ABC may keep this great show going.
