Synopsis:

Bestselling mystery novelist Richard Castle suffers from writers’ block, after killing off his protagonist Derrick Storm. Fate intervenes when he gets to assist real-life crime fighter Detective Kate Beckett on a copycat murder. Using his witty charm and influence Rick Castle sets up a more permanent arrangement to shadow the detective on cases. Intrigued by her job and the mystery surrounding her Castle is inspired to base his next set of novels on Beckett (DON’T call her muse). While working together for research on this new character, Nikki Heat, the two form a close partnership. A great team, Castle and Beckett solve murders involving curiosities and possibly the supernatural as well as the seedy underbelly of NYC.


Yay or Nay?

For everyone obsessed with pop-culture and witty dialogues this is a must. You get a bit of everything here: crime, romance, comedy, and throw in a bunch of geeky/ nerdy/ meta references why don't you. And to those of you who can't get enough of the story, the show even offers their own tie-in books and graphic novels.
