Castle ended last season with some pretty awesome twists: the beloved Captain who always seemed like a straight arrow was involved in a major corruption ring and then sacrificed himself in order to save Kate's life. But at his funeral, a sniper shot Kate and Castle tried to get her out the way, but was too late. So he professed his love instead. For a show that usually consists of light-hearted banter with some grisly cases, this was pretty heavy stuff. So I had high expectations of the premiere... and they weren't exactly met.
When we heard the pitch for Nathan Fillion's new TV show Castle -- mystery writer helps police solve crimes -- we immediately thought of the long-running Angela Lansbury series Murder, She Wrote, which had a similar premise. Hell, even Fillion himself makes the comparison, although ABC apparently told him not to, probably because it makes it sound like a show for 80-year-olds. We've seen a couple episodes of the show by now, and while it probably has more in common with current series like Bones and The Mentalist, there are certainly a few similarities between Castle and Murder She Wrote. We decided to look at just the facts, ma'am, on a case-by-case basis and see if the comparison is justified.
