Tv Season Info

The third series of this crime drama finds Castle (Nathan Fillion) getting arrested; Beckett (Stana Katic) getting shot; and the two of them getting trapped together in a frozen storage container. A much less dire situation arises when Beckett's old training officer resurfaces and strikes up a romance with her, but for Castle, witnessing this passionate reunion is painful. However, Castle does have fun when an actress (Laura Prepon) cast as Nikki Heat tags along with him and Beckett in order to do thorough character research, much to Beckett's dismay. Another episode features several guest stars portraying actors when the head writer of a soap opera is killed. The title of that episode is "One Life to Lose," a pun of "One Life to Live," the real-life soap opera that Nathan Fillion starred on for several years.

Critic Reviews for Castle Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

Despite the whimsical mood, Ms. Katic maintains an egregiously flat and chilly affect, performing as though she has been cast in CSI: Kiev. It is too easy to care not an iota whether they get into bed, let alone eventually wind up registering at Tiffany.

This is a cute piece of work that coasts largely on the charms of its cast (namely Fillion, although there aren't any serious weak spots) and a colorful, cinematic visual style.

Five minutes in and there was already a shoot-out. I had to rewind my DVR several times to take everything in and now that it's over, I'm still in shock.

Sep 6, 2013 | Rating: 4.9/5 | Full Review…

Without the light-hearted and even flirty back-and-forth, there's not a whole lot to distinguish Castle from any mystery made in the last twenty years - and in fact, there's not much about it that stands out either.

Sep 6, 2013 | Full Review…

Of all the shows I enjoy, Castle has some of the best writing on the air.

Audience Reviews for Castle: Season 3

  • Sep 25, 2020
    The hunt for Beckett's mother's killers heats up in Season 3 of Castle. After a summer break Castle returns to the 9th precinct to continue catching murders witch Beckett's team and they soon find new evidence about her mother's case; meanwhile Castle's home life gets more complicated as Alexis makes plans to graduate early and move out to attend college. And the supporting characters are developed more as well, as Esposito and Lanie begin a relationship, Ryan proposes to his girlfriend, and a past case comes back to haunt Captain Montgomery. Additionally, the writer's try some new things, including taking Castle and Beckett out of New York ("To Love and Die in L.A."), tackling a series killer case ("3XK") and domestic terrorist ("Setup" & "Countdown"), and ending the season finale on a nail-biting cliffhanger ("Kockout"). Also, the list of guest stars is as impressive as ever; Lance Henrikson, Laura Prepon, Bruce Davison, Adrian Pasdar, Tina Majorino and Jane Seymour. Castle just keeps getting better and better, and Season 3 may be its strongest yet.
