Last night’s episode of “Castle” — the second half of a two-part cliffhanger — marked a ratings high for the ABC crime series, winning its time slot in part because of the “Dancing with the Stars” lead-in. That led to today’s news that “Castle” has been renewed for a third season.
I’m glad to see this show doing well; in the last few months I’ve gone from being mostly unaware of its existence to watching it more and more often. It’s a cop drama that actually has a sense of humor and some romantic tension, something that’s largely fallen to the wayside in networks’ urge to churn out more procedurals that follow the “Law & Order” and “CSI” models.
Oh yeah, and there’s this new TV spot, which sexes up Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) a lot more than she usually gets on the show. I approve. How come attractive detectives never wear heels and little red dresses to work more often? Actually, that goes for ALL you ladies. Would it kill you to sacrifice some comfort for my visual pleasure every day?
