I absolutely love ABC's new dramedy series "Castle." I originally tuned into the pilot because I am a huge Nathan Fillion (aka Richard Castle) fan but was quickly drawn into the show for more than just him. The father-daughter relationship between Nathon Fillion's character and his daughter is beautiful and the chemistry is great between Castle and NY Detective Kate Beckett. This show has me laughing hysterically one minute to having goose bumps the next. A must watch!

Let's face it, though; anyone being honest will tell you they're only watching Castle for two reasons: The first is the witty, sparkling banter between main characters Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Kate Beckett (Stana Katic).

Wildly famous mystery novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) is bored with his own success. Then he learns that a real-world copycat killer has started staging murder scenes depicted in his novels. Castle is questioned by NYPD Detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), a bright and aggressive detective who keeps her investigations under tight rein. Though they instantly clash, sparks of another sort also begin to fly, leading both to danger and a hint of romance as Castle steps in to help find the killer. And once that case is solved, he and Beckett build on their new relationship as they look to solve more strange homicides in New York - as much fun as one can have with death and murder.
Castle is kept grounded by his Broadway diva mother, Martha Rodgers (Susan Sullivan), and quick-witted teenage daughter Alexis (Molly Quinn). Also starring in the series are Ruben Santiago-Hudson as NYPD Captain Roy Montgomery, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito and Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan.
Castle is produced by ABC Studios. Andrew Marlowe (writer, Air Force One) serves as executive producer/writer, along with executive producers Armyan Bernstein, Barry Schindel, Rob Bowman (who also directed the pilot) and Laurie Zaks.
