Castle 11/5/12

"Shiny"

This was an awesome episode and they must have had a lot of fun making it!

Three minutes in, already 4 Firefly references and many other nods to sci-fi shows.

I actually went back and reran the line where he says "shiny" 3 times to make sure I heard it right.

And Shatner singing at the end.

Oh my! It reminded me of the Halloween episode a couple years back.

It was just OK for me. Oh, sure, I enjoyed the Jonathan Frakes cameo and the Firefly references... but in the end, it was a little too cheesy.

Yes. Especially having the murder weapon be a real, hand-held "laser blaster", and firing it leaves a residue on your hand. Sheesh!

Where was Jonathan Frakes? And why do you hate Agatha Christie?

Spoiler:
...In one of the cheesiest murder mystery reveals ever, Jimmy Stewart did it!


Seriously, if you have 't seen it, watch the movie instead of clicking the spoiler tag. The surprise is a cinematic experience like no other.

Oh....right. I can't tell them apart very well, except the one with the baby and the one with Al from Quantum Leap (and I can't remember the mystery in either one).

No love for Armin Shimerman?

Fillion's Patrick Stewart imitation was pretty funny, too.

Paraphrasing:

"Nebula 9? It was canceled over a decade ago after 12 episodes, which was 12 episodes too many.
It wasn't even good like Battlestar or that Josh Whedon show."

The bad guys on Nebula 9 were Creavers.

I tried to pay more attention during the Con sequences to see if there were anymore references, but didn't see any.

I was hoping to see someone at the con dressed like Captain Hammer but didn't spot one.

I watched that scene twice so I could hear what Castle said as the fan walked away, and I still didn't even recognize Frakes. Now I have to watch it again.

I didn't, either...he must have really gotten old or something.

I figured it was another one of those mystery writers who keep showing up and I don't recognize...

I also thought he was one of the mystery writers - but at second watch, yup, that was him. As to the age ... He's 60 now, so the grey beard is definitely earned!

"Show that was cancelled over a decade ago" counts.

Creavers.

Shiny.

That's three.

Which actually mirrors reality, as Molly Quinn is well known to attend Comic-Con in costume.
