I enjoy Castle. It's one of the shows for which I never miss an episode. But the reason I watch it is not because it's a hard-hitting drama that leaves me on the edge of my seat. It's a silly cop show that's a lot of fun...with some great dialogue.

There was definitely a spike in screen time for Ryan and Esposito. Let's hope this continues throughout the season, shall we? If anyone deserves it, it is these two.

I don't watch the show for dark, sprawling conspiracy plot lines and Emmy-bait performances, and the premiere, like last season's finale, just about choked to death on them.
