    Upon finishing season 3 I wasn't sure if ABC had it in them to keep a good thing going. Season 4 is every bit as good. The season premiere gets heavy from the get go, but the nice back and forth between the show's charming wit and the ongoing story arc that includes Kate Beckett and Rick Castle makes for a great pace. Even when it seems like episodes exist more as exhibitions instead of story continuations, the writers of Castle find a way to advance some aspect of the show. The relationship between Castle and Beckett continues to be a huge point of interest. By the end of its fourth season, Castle remains the high bar of entertainment that it built over three previous seasons. I know all good things eventually come to an end but, as long as Castle can deliver anything near this kind of consistency season after season, I want this show to persist for as long as it can. Few shows that run 20-something episodes get this kind of longevity, but Castle has all the right parts to stick around so long as the cast and crew are up for it. Expand

    After an incredibly shocking end to the triumphant Season 3, Castle returned to our screens as my most anticipated tv show hands down! As a whole the third season of ABC's superb show was just awesome. So how would four fair? Well, to put it plainly, by delivering yet another sensational season of television. Season 4 was the best to date it had all the key ingredients that make Castle, well, Castle! It combined the fun, the emotion, the drama and the will they, won't they elements to perfection. Andrew Marlowe deserves immense credit for this season too. What a genius he is in storytelling and writing wonderful scripts. The acting is also amazing! Stana Katic (seriously, it's illegal how hot this woman is, she just seems to get more beautiful each season!) delivers an award-worthy performance throughout but particuarly in Episode 7; "Kill Shot" it was compelling, intense and a stellar performance from the hottest women on tv. Nathan Fillion is ever dependable but even he ups his game as it reaches make or break for our favourite on screen partnership. Season 4 picks up straight from the shocking events, (SPOILER) after Beckett being shot and rushed to hospital. The season unfolds 3 months down the line and it's clear Beckett isn't yet ready to deal with Castle's near death declaration of his love. However, throughout Season 4 each episode brings them closer together and see's them take strides forward to finally admitting their feelings for each other whilst maintaining all the key components that make Castle dynamite tv. There isn't a bad episode in all honesty and that's testimony to the writers, there are a few exceptional episodes; 'Kill Shot', '47 Seconds', 'Pandora & Linchpin', 'The Blue Butterfly', 'Cops and Robbers' and ofcourse the unforgettable, emotionally charged, defining Caskett moment; the season finale 'Always.' All in all another sublime season from the Castle team, I honestly don't think I can wait until September for Season 5!! Expand

    While the heavy story lines of late last season were compelling, it's a relief to see that this show can still get back to lighter fare.
