Nathan Fillion has become the hero of the geek community with his turn in the short lived series Firefly, movie spin-off Serenity, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Doctor Horrible, and his hit series Castle that is heading into it’s sixth season. With the new season just round the corner what better time to get caught up than with Castle Season 5 hitting DVD on September 10th.
Castle follows a mystery writer who tags along with a NYPD detective for inspiration for his latest novel series. While they clashed at first, they have since grown a closer bond that has been slowly reaching beyond just partners. Finally after all these years Beckett and Castle are together and this season worked to focus on their building relationships and the struggle to keep it secret from those around him as well as allow it to continue to build. This season could have easily been the downfall of the show as jumping the shark letting the tension of their feelings finally gone, but this new addition actually only adds to the drama. There is more to lose from them both in relation to their safety and decisions that are tested here numerous times. This series is a pretty standard cop drama with the usual addition of humor, but thanks to the likeable characters and clever writing it elevates itself to something that is so much more. As with every season this show built up the tension throughout and ended leaving fans with yet another cliffhanger that could change the direction of the show.
Castle the complete fifth season is available now and delivers all the great episodes as well as special features including featurettes Martha’s Master Class, Your Home Is Your Castle, Lot Cops, commentaries, deleted scenes and bloopers. There is no doubt that the next season will continue its normal trend of allowing these characters to grow in ways to change the dynamic so don’t miss the sixth season when it premieres September 23rd on ABC.
