    If you remove the comedy aspect that has been at Castle’s core since the very first episode you are basically left with another police procedural, a genre that has never held my interest for very long. Unfortunately the quality of writing in this regard has seen a steady, yet undeniable, decline since the shows peak in season three and the show is just not as snappy as it once was.

Unfortunately the quality of writing in this regard has seen a steady, yet undeniable, decline since the shows peak in season three and the show is just not as snappy as it once was. One the other hand when it does try to be dramatic or emotional, as it did all too often this season, it never really hits home as you know that none of the main characters are in any real danger and there is no way any of them are going to killed off.

    As a result I have found that I increasingly watch the show for the performances of Stana Katic and Nathan Fillion rather than for anything the show itself does. Although it has become increasingly melodramatic over the years the duos on-screen chemistry has always been integral to the show and, as its fifth season comes to a close, it really is one of the few things keeping me watching.

    While this focus [ on Kate and the shadowy lethal forces] at times approaches a "perils of Pauline" level of melodrama, with a showdown that pushes the credibility envelope, it's fun to watch.
