This one is a bit off topic for me, but appropriate none the less. If you had asked me a year ago whether or not I would have a.) Agreed to watch a non-sci fi or fantasy show, specifically a cop show, and b.) Been raving about it to everyone as well as quoting cheesy one-liners from it on a weekly basis I would have said wholeheartedly no way. But my love of Nathan Fillion (from Firefly fame of course) convinced me to say at least give it a try. And here I am a year later writing you a suggestions post on why I think you too should take the plunge. Here’s my spoiler filled reasoning for you on why I think you should give Castle a try.
Welcome back to all the conniving, aspiring villains out there. This week I checked out a movie just for you, and me, and all of us wannabe evil schemers out there. A movie that had just a few of my favorite things, from Joss Whedon to touching musical moments, Neil Patrick Harris to Nathan Fillion, and a bit of a mad scientist to top it all off, I had been told again and again that Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog was a movie made for me. In many ways all those co-conspirators of mine were right, so continue forward for a spoiler-laden review of this short 40 minute flick.
Every year when August rears its hot, humid and sweaty head I get a little excited that it is that time of year again: that time of year being time to re-watch the TV show Firefly. Feel free to replace the above sentence with any month of the year, since it is a well known fact that Firefly is the best TV show of all time, and therefore why deprive yourself, you might as well indulge in this addicting program multiple times a year. I am sure most of you sci-fi loving freaks have already come across this show (and therefore become a drooling slave to its powers), but for those of you who have not, drop what you are doing RIGHT NOW and go online or to the nearest Newbury Comics to buy yourself a copy. Before you know it you will be fired from your job for lack of productivity since you will be spending all waking hours outside of work watching the show, which is a good thing since it will allow you to re-watch the show again and again without work interfering.
