I used to look forward to Castle every week, I really did. Even at the beginning of this series, I was still enthusiastic and willing to go along with things. I’ve done my fair share of defending this season.
Now, it’s like I’m grimly waiting for my weekly dose of getting-kicked-in-the-balls. And then, to add insult to injury, the guy with the steel-tipped boots keeps telling me to suck it up because “it’s not about the destination, it’s the journey!”
But this journey is becoming excruciating. It’s all angst and the characters acting like imbecilic two-year-olds. Except not, because a two-year-old would actually shout and cry about what he or she wants, instead of engaging in passive-aggressive mind-reading games.
(And I’m including both Castle and Beckett in this. Seriously, they really need to get this fucking ‘secrets’ plot-line over with — it’s just a glorious albatross of angst and stalled character development around the show’s neck, it’s bogging everything down.)
Seriously, when it seems like the people who write the fanfiction have better understanding of and enthusiasm for the characters than the guy who’s in charge of the fucking show, there’s a problem somewhere.
