As revealing as Alexis' costume was... it's just terrible. Funny, but unflattering.

Yup. Reaction: That girl's hot. Oh, it's Alexis! Ohhh. O_o

It's okay, dude. She's legal.

My wife didn't recognize him, but I did. I didn't get the significance of "number one fan", though. Nice.

Maybe it was a Misery reference? But now Castle's remark of "How the mighty have fallen" makes more sense.

You're kidding, right? GWJ hipped me to it being a TNG reference.

Oh.

Oh man, I loved this weeks episode. The first 4 minutes in particular had me laughing out loud. So many great references. The guy who played Quark on DS9 as the collector was a nice tip of the hat. I hope to hell we get a lot more fun episodes this season. They are so much better then the trying to be serious episodes.

I like both, but want more fun than serious.

The ending had my wife and I rolling around laughing.

Oh man. Old episodes on TNT today. Cracking up at s3e9 where Castle speaks some Chinese to some kitchen workers. Beckett asks if he took a semester abroad, and he says "No, just an old TV show I used to love".

I forget about all the jokes that have been tossed in through the years.

I'm sorry. That episode sucked.

3-6 different camera angles in each small room, and not one camera shown in any of the views? That's just one peeve. I think the characters are so incredibly out of character in the way they were presented, that I could not even suspend disbelief enough to begin to enjoy what I was watching.

I was prepared to hate it before the title card, but I actually really liked it. I probably won't remember it, but I think they succeeded in their goal to create a docudramedy of a dramedy.

That was the point. With the cameras on them, no one was acting like themselves. They were all acting like how they wanted to be perceived in the documentary.

I enjoyed this episode a lot. And I loved every single time anyone made eye contact with the camera.

Seriously? No one caught the Wham! joke? Or that the thing that Gates was pissed off at Castle and Beckett about was the same thing Nathan Fillion is "famous" for among his and Firefly fans; photobombing?

What about Castle doing all the stings himself towards the end and even humming the show's theme at one of them? All while Beckett rolls her eyes adoringly in the background.

Speaking of Beckett, she's nervous about the cameras at first, then resentful, then starting to get comfortable with them, even smiles and ignores them when she's finally in her element. Then pissed off after the incident, till that last tease at the end. All of these playing across her face and body language. Stana is such a great actress and this just showcases it again.

Great episode and very meta, about as close to a musical episode that everyone seems every show to do since Buffy the Vampire Slayer did it.
To me, it was on par with last weeks episode, while that episode was sort of a well meaning parody of Sci-fi shows, this one is a self-parody of the Castle TV series itself.

Yeah, I liked this one a lot. Had me cracking up the whole time which is what I want out of Castle.

While it was meta but a bit to much navel gazing and just annoying to watch. I really wish someone would've sent me a youtube link of all of Fillion's quips

Loved it. Cracking up the whole time. Laney's outfit when she called them down for what could have been a phone call? Esposito moving Castle back because he was blocking him from the camera. Everything Falchion mentioned above. Great episode.

This. Cracked up more than probably any episode ever. Now, I did think the camera angles were annoying at first, but either I got used to it, or they subtly stopped doing so much of it once the theme had been established.

Loved the Wham joke, loved the Pete Best/Stuart Sutcliffe joke. Loved it all!

Loved it. Only thing I didn't care for was that being a great guitarist automatically makes you a great bassist. Ha!

Yeah, this bugged me a bit too. Overall though, I thought it was a good episode. A pity Martha couldn't have made an appearance at the station. She'd have hammed it up, but good. Though Espo was doing fine in that regard as well.

"Did you change your shirt?"

"I spilled on it."

Also, "You're welcome, America."

I really enjoyed the episode as well. I was a little worried I was going to get annoyed with all the documentary style camera action but I got used to it, and the jokes kept on coming. The funniest bit has to be Castle calling the fade to black stuff. I couldn't stop laughing.

The multi-camera documentary was patently ridiculous, and I even commented on it to Yellek. But after a while I just got into the groove and went with it.

Absolutely worst thing about the episode was Beckett's hair style.

Yeah, and since they needed to replace their guitar player too, wouldn't they give this virtuoso that spot? Don't try to tell me the singer hired annoying blonde guy from his jail cell.

Yeah, put me down as not liking that episode. While I liked some of the quips and lines, it felt really odd and uncomfortable for some reason. Perhaps if the camera men were shown? There were quick shots that could not have logically existed without seeing the cameraman from the previous shot, etc. I'm a little surprised they didn't change the quality or the "footage" from the camera crew. That's how it's usually done. And, although I understand that the footage they'd be shooting would likely be HD, I never got used to it. Call me old fashioned.

General Beckman from Chuck as the nun tonight.

I caught that as well. It took me a few minutes though. I recognized the voice but couldn't place and then she said something, I can't remember what, and it hit me.

13 hour marathon on TNT tomorrow.

Just finished watching this episode. Really enjoyed the whole "there's a camera on me" angle of everybody hamming it up. That said, I just loved how Stana Katic pulled off the uncomfortable with the camera, then forgetting there's a camera when in the interrogation angle. Showed again that she is such a good actress.

Just watched last week's episode. That dinner scene during the opening was taken write out of an episode of Downton Abbey. So passive aggressive and catty.
