    Darn you, Castle writers! Darn you to the lukewarm pits of heck!

    Every time I look at Nathan Fillion now, I see Jason Bateman!

    (Great title, by the way...)

    I guess you missed the scene towards the beginning, where Castle was primping for the paparazzi and they were going nuts over him...until they realized he wasn't Jason Bateman? And then they ran away, and Castle muttered something to the effect of "Not again."

    And the thing is, I never realized how much Fillion DOES look like Jason Bateman! Until now. Now, I can't get it out of my head.

    Good thing they have different smirks... :D

    Thx, I did miss that. Actually, I don't see it personally. Mostly Nathan is better looking. Oddly, I was watching Saving Private Ryan and noticed him in the role of the wrong Private Ryan. Never noticed before.

    Think this was intended as an in-joke... NF talks about being mistaken for JB on Letterman: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cwQ5PbuKdoE[/media]

    I gotta say, I don't really see the resemblance.

    If Nathan doesn't watch the weight, pretty soon people will start mistaking him for Alec Baldwin. Although I've heard he hasn't actually gained weight, it's the fault of the show's wardrobe department for dressing him very badly.

    Also, does Stana have a different hairstyle in every episode?

    I think the changes are infrequent, but boy did this one stand out. It was not flattering at all.

    He has very obviously gained weight. His face used to be a rectangle, and now it's a square. Unless the wardrobe department can add extra flesh along his jawline, this is in no way their fault.

    He's definitely added weight since the show began. Maybe he can give some of it to the actress playing Kay Cappuccio. I can't stand seeing her bare arms. Bothersome on White Collar.

    btw, is it just me or did that one shot of Beckett and Esposito running away from the german shepards (the shot down the hall as they ran across the screen from right to left) look like it was lifted straight out of a Scooby Doo cartoon? :)

    My thought was: Those are the slowest German Shepherds ever!

    There were a few things different about this show. Becket didnt look that great for some reason. Also a lot of the scenes were shot with a shadow on the left side of their faces and bright light on the right. It was noticable in the scenes in the police office.

    I thought that, too. "Wait, you are trying to outrun dogs? Are there a lot of turns and maybe something you are going to climb on? No? Just straight out running? This scene should be about 14 seconds, tops!"

    My thought when I saw the dogs just looking at them was that trained guard dogs don't do that, they attack.
