Jessica Jumps In: A Newbie's Sample of ABC's Castle
4. Necessary Investment Level
If every episode is like “Probable Cause,” Castle is not the type of show that needs repeat viewing to pick up on subtle clues and nuances. In fact, it may not even be the type of show you’ll want to tune in each week for. That’s perfectly alright, as the writing sets up a self-contained mystery with only a little mention of our character’s personal lives.
One of the good things about Castle is that it’s a very simple show to follow. It’s not stupid. It doesn’t talk down to its fans, but it’s not Parenthood. The average viewer--even one prone to multi-tasking--will be able to keep up with the mystery and get something out of the show.
