Castle this week looks at Internet celebrity and how fleeting any event is on the web “continuum.” Season seven of this popular Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic double act, along with the ensemble cast of Molly C. Quinn, Susan Sullivan, Jon Huertas, Seamus Dever, Penny Johnson and Tamala Jones has moved on from the wedding that never was in the beginning and has gotten back to making pertinent statements about society. The power of the writing and the show’s deft humor still delivers. When a web star from “Snappamatic” is murdered by “netslayer,” who then posts a photo of the dead celeb on his account – with the caption, “This star’s 15 seconds are over,” Team Castle and Beckett, or Caskett have to solve the crime before the killer can strike again. In this instance, however, they fail at first.
Last night’s Castle episode, That ’70′s Show could have been titled Life on Marssans Harvey Keitel. Although to be honest, the premise had nothing to do with being in a car crash or going back in time. In the show, there is a “visit” to the 1970′s in terms of wardrobe, the precinct, and the morgue, but no real, or imagined, trips to the time of disco is evident on the show.
