Holy macaroni, where do I even start with last night's shows?
Castle was awesome. It was tense and even though we were beating the dead mother storyline again (isn't that horse dead yet?) Stana Katic blew me out of the water with her acting skills. The moment where she's trying to decide whether to suppress that evidence, or where she knows she's let a man go who could potentially hurt innocent people, even the interrogation room scene, it was all amazing. Katic says everything with her facial expressions. It is truly amazing to watch.
Castle was no slouch either. His little comment that he wouldn't have stopped what happened was a tiny bit chilling, considering how Castle's character usually is so laidback. But it also tells me the depth of what he feels for Beckett and what she's gone through because of Bracken. It was a really well-acted episode.
The best thing was how the writers kept the tension high throughout the entire hour. The set-up, the scenes with Bracken, the guilt at what Beckett's done, it was all incredible. Loved it.
Hawaii Five-O was kickin' it old school with an homage to the original series and rehashing an old script that's been updated a bit. Robocop was creepy from the get-go, walking through the cemetery and putting together his sniper rifle. With some of the recent headlines, it made it all the more creepy. I liked how the fab four worked together and how in the end, the sniper died by a sniper. Danno and Steve had some cute banter moments (I do not worry about losing you during a gun battle, haha!), but the cargument was my favorite. (On the well-paved roads of Honolulu, I am definitely the better driver.)
Then at the end, the writers went all Star Wars and had the dead cops who were like his "uncles" and his father appear to Steve, all happy and proud. Strange and awkward, but I couldn't turn away.
All in all, a wonderful night of television.
What did you do last night? Did you catch any good TV?
