I was introduced to this by my girlfriend and since then every week I check for its new episodes in torrents. The 22nd episode of the 4th season is currently running on Star World. The story starts like this : Castle acted by Nathan Fillion is a famous mystery novelist who had killed off his main character in his book series and had writer’s block. One day he was brought in by the NYPD for questioning regarding a copy-cat murder based on one of his novels. He was intrigued by this new window into crime and murder, and uses his connections with the mayor of New York City  to charm his way into shadowing the captivating Detective Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic. Castle then decides to use Beckett as the model for the main character of his next book series starring “Nikki Heat”. Beckett, an avid reader of Castle’s books, initially disapproves of having Castle shadow her on her cases, but later warms up and recognizes Castle as a useful resource in her team’s investigations.

The characters in the series just creates a perfect balance for the viewers to enjoy. They are a set of warm and friendly characters . The main character is Richard Edgar “Rick” Castle, the mystery novelist who helps NYPD in their homicide cases with his out of the box thinking. He is also a cool and amazing single dad and a rich,charming, intelligent, quick-witted  playboy. The other main character is Kate Beckett who is a hardworking, dedicated  first-class homicide investigator of NYPD , she joined the force after her mother was murdered in an unsolved case. Kate is helped by Detective Javier Esposito and Detective Kevin Ryan and both of them are funny and hardworking. Alexis Castle is Richard Castle’s daughter and father daughter relationship  just warms up and gives the viewers a perfect relief after a head crunching murder case. Martha Rodgers is Richard Castle’s mother who stays with him and his daughter who also creates a warm and homely environment when needed. Together they solve amazing murder cases and Castle’s out of the box creative mind and charisma spices up the whole investigation process into a different level. The homicide cases are also very interesting, unique and are of varied nature involving everything from terrorism to fairy tales.

I thought of mentioning this in the blog so that you guys don’t miss such a wonderful thing. All the episode are available on the net and you can download the torrents. Let me know how you felt.

    It is an addictive series. And the characters are so warm yet enigmatic. I adore Castle and his bad boy charms and I letch at Kate somewhat scandalously!! Even the supporting characters are so well-written. I adore madcap Martha and sesnsible Alexis!! And Ryan in so cute!! 🙂 And Esposito is so funneeeee!!! And Captain Montgomery is just the ideal boss!!

  2. oh ya I forgot to mention captain montgomery. The new captain is not good 😦

    Well it’s difficult to fill in someone else’ shoes.. I think they have purposefully made her a tough nut so that there are no comparisons whatsoever with Captain Montgomery..

  4. maybe …. but thats not good as I want something better. If its about retaining viewers , then they are not doing a good job
