Random 'Castle' dialogue

One of my new favorite shows is "Castle" (10 PM Mondays on ABC), about novelist Rick Castle who uses Detective Kate Beckett to be his inspiration and muse for his newest character.

Played with perfect charm by Nathan Fillion, Castle — who is equal parts horndog/troublemaker/loving father/overgrown kid/flirt/smart aleck — does ride-alongs with Beckett (actress Stana Katic from "Quantum of Solace") to murder scenes to not only gather realistic info for his murder-mysteries, but also add his insight.

The dialogue is snappy, you could cut the (sexual) tension between Beckett and Castle with a knife, the leads have great chemistry and it's just a plain lot of fun.

Below is a brief scene in which Beckett comes to Castle's apartment (that he shares with his adorable daughter and eccentric mother) because she was stuck on the details of a murder investigation.

Beckett enters Castle's work place, checking out the layout and the computer Smart Board on which Castle has concocted his female detective's life story.

It will be obvious why I adore this scene — and this series:

Beckett: I feel like Alfred coming into the Batcave for the first time.

Castle: A Batman fan, huh?! I would have guessed so.

Beckett: Why's that?

Castle: A victim scarred by a horrible crime later devotes her life to fighting crime.

Beckett: Yeah, but you're the billionaire.

So, have any of the rest of you been enjoying "Castle"? What is it that's so appealing for you?

The appeal is definitely the chemistry between Beckett and Castle. The little flirts and looks between them give us just enough to wonder "will they or won't they". They both play their characters nicely and are a good fit.

I enjoy the daughter and Mother too. That household would be a riot to live in for a few days. There is always something going on with them, including playing family games.

Did Castle get rich from the books he got published? The reason I ask is that in the beginning, the next book was coming out and it was not selling which was a concern for them, especially the Mother. She was a trip.

I like the idea of the storyline moving towards the writing of the novel. It gives the show a bit of an edge over some of the other typical crime-drama shows.

Some of the other characters may need to find their spot but I am sure in time they will evolve.
