The third season continues the growing sexual tension between
mystery writer Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) as they solve murders together.
Kate gets closer to solving the mystery of who murdered her mother
and more things get known about it which will have consequences reaching right into season four. This season has nods
to the X-Files, a steampunk themes episode, an appearance by the actress chosen to play Nikki Heat in the film version
of Castle's novels inspired by Detective Beckett, and a trip to Los Angeles where Kate tracks the killer of an old mentor.
CASTLE continues to balance humor, murder, and character development in a mystery series that continues to be popular
in ways that some fans of Nathan Fillion wished FIREFLY could have been as popular. CASTLE continues to be thoroughly
engaging as a series where they eventually will have to pair Beckett and Castle together even if it means murder for the series

FINAL ANALYSIS: The
third season of CASTLE is as good as the previous two seasons. If you enjoyed this show, you should own all seasons
on DVD. Too bad they didn't have more audio commentaries on the episodes as the show's two stars are absent from those
tracks and only in some of the featurettes on disc 5.
