Particularly leery about this season since there were stars of little interest to me, but after only one Dancing with the Stars episode, I am totally hooked. Check out my full recap right here.
Last night was also the premiere of the new ABC series Castle. Overall, I enjoyed the hour but I have some reservations going forward. Nathan Fillion plays a mystery writer who kills off his most famed character in hopes of finding something fresh and new to write about. Easier said than done. Luck for him, someone has started murdering people right out of the pages of his books. The police pull him in for questioning and this leads to an uneasy partnership with the lead detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic).
Fillion is extremely charming despite his annoying habits and I'll do as I please attitude but he needs to be toned down a touch going forward. I'm less fond of Katic's detective Beckett, though she could grow on me if she's toned down a notch, as well. Right now, she's a bit too flustered by Castle and the fact that he keeps pointing out things she should have noticed could get old fast.
The supporting cast is excellent. Susan Sullivan as Castle's free-spirited mother, Molly Quinn as his studious daughter Alexis, and I like the two detectives that work with Beckett. I also love the look of the show, very warm and interesting. It's an updated version of an old cozy murder mystery and I like that. I'm on board for next week at the very least.
But now let's see what's on tonight! American Idol for one!
Stop the presses. I mean stop The Power Rangers. This long running children's series has reportedly ceased producing new episodes. It's a sad, sad day.
Mariska Hargitay is going to be sidelined longer than expected due to a collapse lung. The story was reported weeks ago with reps saying it wasn't a big deal. Now she's undergoing a second surgery and will be unable to work for several weeks. Incredibly, producers say she'll only be absent from one episode of Law & Order: SVU as a result. We wish her well.
For you puppy fans, Dogtown returns to National Geographic Channel on March 20. The series follows teams as they rescue dogs from some very unusual and very horrendous situations while other dogs are treated for a variety of issues at the Dogtown vet center. Hopeful and sad, all at the same time.
