Trailer for ABC's Castle Starring Nathan Fillion

First Look: ABC's Castle Starring Nathan Fillion

What's that? Nathan Fillion back on my TV screen? Indeed. Fillion — most recently known by the alias of Captain Hammer — is preparing to return to TV in Castle, an ABC crime dramedy that will debut sometime later this season.

Fillion plays Nick (or possibly Rick — ABC seems unsettled on this matter) Castle, a crime writer bored with his work until a real-life murderer starts ripping off his plots for his or her crimes. Castle's quickly pulled into service by the NYPD and teamed with a detective named Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), whom he naturally a) clashes with and b) finds insanely attractive. Oh, and did I mention his ex-wife is still his book editor?

The first trailer for Castle is pretty ridiculous, with Castle acting roguish and disrespectful but atoning for his rude behavior with just a wink and nod in Beckett's direction. (Just once, I'd like to see a cop show have the female partner be the frustrating but lovable jerk.) That said . . . it's Fillion. Charisma everywhere. That's enough to make me curious to see more. Want to see what you think? Just

You know this could work given the right time slot. I will definitely watch only because of Nathan!

"Castle" looks like "Murder She Wrote" all over with one difference, the author's primary occupation.

Nathan Fillion does have the charm to really pull this off. I liked Remington Steele as well, so if the writing holds up this could turn out to be a fun series. I'll commit to giving it at least 3 episodes before a final judgment :D

I want more Captain Mal Reynolds. Maybe I will give it a chance just to support him.

I too like Fillion, so I'll give it a chance. I feel like TV could use a few more good dramedies right now anyway.

i've never been into shows like this and this is one that just follows suit. i guess we'll have to wait and see how it does right?

Initial impressions? A little on the cheeseball side BUT it reminds me a bit of those early 80’s shows I loved so much (Remington Steele, etc.) and I think Nathan could be gangbusters in a serious/cheesy role like Rick Castle. BUT if that’s the vein the show is in, I need to see more of the female lead to see if she can hold her own or if she’ll just be kind of boring. Like the interplay with the daughter…less cliche and stronger scene-vibes over all then some of the cop parts. Had several very funny moments which bodes well (love the lines about “this is better then shark week” and Nathan’s “that was so cool!”) But as you I'm hooked before it even starts :)

I love Fillion, but it seems like he's on a new show ever TV season. I'm surprised they still give him his own series after he's had so many canceled ones!

So cheesy! This looks like something out of the 90's. But I can't help but love Nathan Fillion!

haha I loved that part where he says "DID YOU SEE THAT?? SO COOL" it made me laugh. Looks kind of cheesy, and not sure where the plot can go but might be ok
