It's been awhile... :)

I've just come off a Castle binge:  four seasons in under a week.  O.o  I feel like I need an intervention and I'm going into withdrawal (what do I watch no-o-o-o-w!?!?)

What have I learned?  Well:

1.  Nathan Fillion is freakin' adorkable.

2.  It's way funnier than I expected it to be.

3.  I don't really see the same chemistry between Castle/Beckett as everyone else...but I'm invested anyway.  I want these two crazy kids to make it (d'awwwww).

4.  Nathan is a really big guy - I mean, tall and broad.  There was one scene where he's walking down the hall with Ryan and Esposito and I swear, he looked like he was twice as wide as they are.  Granted, it could be the wardrobe...but damn.  (For the record, I love tall men with broad shoulders.)

5.  Ryan and Esposito?  Gold.  OMG.

6.  Martha?  Same.

7.  I love Alexis/Castle's relationship.  D'awwwwww x 2.

8.  I really like watching a series like this (okay, the binge-part of it is a bit over the top, but still).  I find it's a whole different experience when you can see all the episodes immediately after each other.  You can really see the plot lines/connections.  Season 3 was sooo filled with anvils about the season finale but I don't think I would have made the connections if I had watched "live".

9.  All the sci fi references, the soap opera references, other references:  LOVE 'EM!!  And I appreciate the fact that even as they're poking fun, they're also (at their core) respectful.

10.  Am I the only one who thinks Castle is a really insecure, hurt little boy inside?  Just me?  Okay...

So, yeah.  Another series to love.  :)  It's worth the marathon-watching-hangover.  (And did I mention Nathan Fillion is freakin' adorkable??  :P)

I love the episode where he dresses up as Mal. Also Ryan is the most adorable man. The relationships all round are really good. Its such a fun show.

Yeah - "didn't you wear that, like, five years ago?" "...I like it." d'awwww! LOL

Of course, this now means I have to watch Firefly/Serenity (shakes fist in Nathan Fillion's general direction).

Ryan - yes, adorable! And hilarious! "I'm a lost cause: a man in love with his wife!" bwahahaha!!

It really is a fun, fun show. Looking forward to the new ep tonight! :)

Quotes

"All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need...fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little --"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

-- Susan and Death in Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

"And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based."

-- Lord Vetinari in Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.

-- Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

As a wizard, it was something that Ponder had only before encountered in acorns: a tiny soundless voice which said, yes, I am but a small, green, simple object - but I dream about forests.

-- Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

In the 24th century, there will be no hunger. There will be no greed. And every child will know how to read.

-- Gene Roddenberry, as repeated by Jonathan Frakes in the documentary How William Shatner Changed the World

---------------------

We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way.

-- Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Hard Way from the album Come On, Come On

---------------------

Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want.

-- John Mayer, Waiting on the World to Change from the album Continuum

---------------------

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try again tomorrow."

-- Mary Anne Radmacher, as seen in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Tales to Inspire

---------------------

I never loved the soldier
Until there was a war.
Or thought about tomorrow
'til my baby hit the floor.
I only talk to God
When somebody's about to die.
I never cherished freedom
Freedom never cries.

-- Five for Fighting, Freedom Never Cries from the album Two Lights

---------------------

It may sound absurd: but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed: but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream

-- Five for Fighting, Superman (It's Not Easy) from the album American Town

---------------------

Had a dream last night took a time travellin' ride
Back to my childhood where those monsters reside
They snack on innocence and dine on self-esteem
But I like to be in touch with what makes me scream
Vampires, mummies and the Holy Ghost
These are the things that terrify me the most.
No alien, psychopath or MTV host
Scares me like vampires,mummies and the Holy Ghost.

-- Jimmy Buffett, Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost from the album Fruitcakes

---------------------

"I want to believe that... the dead are not lost to us. That they speak to us... as part of something greater than us - greater than any alien force. And if you and I are powerless now, I want to believe that if we listen, to what's speaking, it can give us the power to save ourselves."

-- Fox Mulder, The X-Files from the episode The Truth, pt. 2
