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)

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…

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…

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

Sep 21, 2010 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

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.

Sep 6, 2013 | Full Review…

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.
