Best Case Ever!

If you follow this blog with any sort of regularity you will have noticed that I hit a dry spell again. Sigh.

Ah well, it's not all lost. I decided to go through my videos saved to Favorites in YouTube, so that I can (once again) shower you with clips from shows current and cancelled.

This one is from Castle. It always cracks me up when they learn about a case, and it's super strange, and he says "best case ever!"


  1. I'm glad to see you blogging again. It turns out I have a post about this show, Fabius Maximus on 'Castle'. It's very meta, in that I'm really commenting on another blogger's take on the series, especially what the show reveals about American culture. Welcome to turning entertainment into SZRS BZNS.

  2. I admit that one of the things I always pay attention to when watching TV is what the viewers want me to think about something. Some shows bombard with it, but I wouldn't say this is one of them. Hmmm.

    1. I agree. The writers have no agenda other than to entertain, both themselves and their audience. Just the same, the culture comes through despite the creators' efforts not to have a message larger than their characters and plots. That's what's so interesting about the analysis.

  3. I followed the link the first time you posted it and read a good many of the Castle posts. I think this blog is fascinating (and not wrong) on the subtle ways TV impacts our lives. I don't agree with every conclusion he's drawn about Castle and Beckett, but some of them are pretty on target. I watched the explanation roll out for Castle's disappearance, and it didn't strike me as contrived or as a change from the original line of thinking. I don't think the writers ever intended for Castle to just leave his life because he was dissatisfied with how it was going. (That's one point on which we disagree.)

    I think he might be right about women being attracted to successful men and that as success in the workplace dissipates across the board, so will success in relationships. Let's face it, the thing people divorce most often over is money.

    Interesting stuff!
