Plus, Ed Quinn (Stark in Eureka) was there. Looks better with the beard, though.

Thoroughly enjoyable episode with a nice selection of suspects.

Last night's rock star murder episode was an odd ball one. It was a chance for everyone to ham it up for the camera's on the documentary. So it made for fun comedy when everyone was so hogging the spotlight. Lots of good expressions. Just seemed too odd for the Captain herself to be so into it. Esposito changing to a tighter shirt, Ryan trying to be the nerve center, etc.... An odd episode.

I didn't hate it as much as I thought I would, but I wasn't particularly in the mood for this kind of a lark episode, either. Having full access at the department and getting to go in when it was believed shots were fired was hard to believe.

I think the motif for the episode wore out its welcome before the end. I got tired of all the mugging and posturing though I'm sure the actors had a blast doing the show. We also weren't given enough facts to be able to guess the murderer's identity before it was revealed.

Yeah, the discovery off the killer at the end was kind of a "wha.."  we knew nothing about him, so it didn't connect with me at all.   But the whole "it's a documentary crew" gets used so much everywhere I'd prefer to never see it again in any series.  The Practice used the same trope last night.

I really disliked the documentary angle, especially because it was so poorly executed. It was filmed like a traditional episode with multiple camera angles (3-4+) in the same room including quick cuts and close-ups, only using a hand-held camera. It completely pulled me out of any illusion that this was actual documentary footage of the investigation. The story itself was ok, but the execution of the documentary style was lame.

I really enjoyed it, too. A good mystery and some interesting differences in the way the team was dealing with Christmas celebrations. And how spectacular was Rick Castle's apartment decorated! Took my breath away.

I was wondering why they did a Holiday episode so soon. And it looks like re-runs till January. It was a nice ending where they both were willing to change their yearly traditions to be with each other. I was hoping to see what Castle gave the captain, if it was a replacement doll he broke a few episodes ago.

Rick's inability to deal with the ex-wife (to even get a word in edgewise) got irritating to me after a time. I know it was being played for comedy with his discomfort and Beckett's mounting displeasure making him feel torn in two, but it got old fast for me.

I was over it before the opening credits. In fact, I made a note to see the writer's name, and was surprised it was one of the regulars.

The thing that didn't work for me was Kate asking Meredith why they got divorced. I mean, she's met Meredith. It's pretty obvious she's not the type to get tied down. When the baby came, Castle decided he needed to settle down and be a real parent while Meredith wasn't interested in that life. It reeked of creating an artificial obstacle. Yeah, Castle's father is a bit of a sore subject with him. But the entire rest of his life is a pretty open book. I certainly don't see him as particularly withholding in the way the show tried to make him out to be.

I liked it. I especially liked Esposito having more to do than usual and some of his backstory.

Yo. I liked seeing more of a focus on Zito, too.

It's been announced that
Spoiler
will be playing Castle's Father. Hopefully we will start getting some answers that Jennifer Beals hinted at.
