For those who are Firefly fans (like me) or know the other works of Nathan Fillion will be happy to hear that there is life after scifi. Nathan has a new show, preparing to air in March. Castle is a 1 hour witty drama based on a famous crime and horror novelist who helps the NYPD homicide department solve crimes. Richard Castle [Nathan Fillion], a star of the literary world, is struggling from a case of writers block after knocking off the main character in his novels and is battling to come up with a substitution for the character when he is approached by beautiful Detective Kate Beckett [Stana Katic] of the NYPD to help catch the copy-cat killer staging murders based on scenes from his very own novels.Castle is not a traditional investigator and his approach to unravel the crimes conflicts with Beckett’s traditionalist approach leading to much tension and a suggestion of romance. Keeping Castle grounded are his mother [Susan Sullivan], teenage daughter Alexis [Molly C. Quinn], poker playing friends James Patterson, Sue Grafton, and Stephen King and his ex wife Gina [Monet Mazur] who just so happens to be his editor. Actor Ruben Santiago-Hudson will play the Police Chief. Castle is lighthearted with romantic tension and tempts the viewer to invest in the relationship of two people having fun together and engaging in amusing repartee (cool word) The new series Castle is being directed by Rob Bowman whose other shows include Night Stalker and X-Files. The new show will air on 3/9/9 thanks to my dearest friend Katherine for the heads up. Any questions or comments please let us know here at SciFiPundit.
