Review 38: Burning Castle

Review is like app or game coverage but for movie series, television shows, comic books, and other geeky entertainment. It's great stuff you can watch and enjoy on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV! On this week's episode — Castle manages to escape cliffhanger hell, and not just the character, SHIELD is actually… not bad this season? (Though cautious pessimism remains.) More on Arrow, Flash, and Gotham, and catching up on Doctor Who. With Dave Wiskus and Rene Ritchie.

  • What's this got to do with Apple? And not everyone wears glasses!!
  • Castle is one of my favorite TV shows but this season has been strange! I think that ABC had a hand in screwing with the plots and made it very unbearable to watch now! I have been wavering from the episodes since the Wedding and the first episode. I think that ABC execs show just leave the writers to do their thing. When Beckett got promoted to the FBI as an agent; I heard that ABC execs suggested this change and it brought down the ratings.
  • When you have a good cast clicking, and great writers, best leave them alone. Too many time the executives have been the death of a great show. Sent from the iMore App
  • I'm a huge fan of Castle and Agents of shield. I too have to agree with the fact that the Castle plot has really taken some twists and turns, but I'll still watch it to see what happens. Shield had a little bit of a rough start, but I have always been intrigued and now season 2 seems to really bolster ahead the struggles that they are having to reestablish shield. All in all, these are two good TV series's! Magenta is the new Yellow
  • On the 17th of November; NBC is going to be running State Of Affairs! I just hoping Castle retains their ratings. They been preempt several times during the season and that cannot be good for the Castle ratings.
