    No, Tru Calling wasn't the show I meant.. I guess I have to try that one out. Oh, I thought it had a one word title, but it doesn't..

    Day Break -- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0801425/

    Ahh... yeah, that one fits the Groundhog Day model as well, probably better than Tru Calling.

    I thought in the Groundhog Day model, a character gets to learn and apply what they learn from day to day.

    Though if it's only a "what if?", then I think of that more like a Christmas Carol or "It's a Wonderful Life"

    But if it's just different points of view of the same event, I think of that more like Rashomon.

    I think most of you lost the whole intend of the show. It was very funny seeing them out of character. And I thought they made it look as though they were talking to us not the camera.

    I think we understood the intent just fine - some of us just didn't like it.

    Didn't care for this episode or the one that followed it yesterday (Nov. 19). I don't think it's because Castle and Beckett are now together, I think it's because the writers are getting sloppy in general. The show's lost a certain zip to it. :(

    This time of year they always have special episodes (holidays) and to me, shows often lose something when they go for those episodes.
