  • This is one of those rare shows that actually gets better with time. The fall finale was the best episode ever. I was literally on the edge of my seat when that tiger was discovered…

      • I agree with Babygate. I would NEVER have expected a freaking tiger. A+ for element of surprise. I laughed my butt off.

    • SO very true.

      First I jumped out of my seat then I started laughing really bad. I had nothing against that episode. It was fun-filled and funny!

      And yes, also with you on the first part. Castle is pretty lucky. I didn’t even know they had only 22 episode for season 4! =\ And I don’t really understand why people are hating on this season. I thought this season is the best of all of them. It’s so much more interesting! =D

  • Wait a minute, isn’t this the same network that said they overbooked their schedule and have had to not only delay bringing back Cougar Town but have had to reduce its episode order? Maybe the powers that be need to communicate more clearly with the “spin department” so they are tripping over their lies. Before anyone gets all upset, I am not comparing the two shows. I am making a point that the network clearly has extra time on its hands, so now fes up to the real reason that Cougar Town is being punished.

    • Maybe because Cougar Town is a terrible show that no one likes.
