Sometimes, old school is the way to go.

I'm caught up on Castle.

You know what this show desperately, desperately needs? An h/c plotline. And I'm not saying this as an h/c addict. Well, maybe I am, a bit, but. It's a show with a pulp-novel-y partner theme, right? They've got Starsky and Hutch and Mulder and Scully references every other episode. If you actually watch S&H and the X-Files, you know what those guys do every other episode? They get hurt, and they rescue one another. That's all they do, all the time. I'm not saying I want Castle to be the X-Files, but seriously. They're on their third season. Would it hurt them to have one finale plot end with Castle in the hospital? It would be funny! It would be adorable! It would be all I-don't-care-about-you-but-actually-I-do-please-don't-die, which is exactly what you want, if you're cultivating an antagonistic friendship between your two leads the way Castle is trying to do.

I was waiting for Lie to Me to do something with Emily. But, okay, I get it, Lie to Me tries to be a classy, CSI-ish procedural show. They don't want to go for the cheap emotional tricks. Castle isn't that kind of show. Castle is trying to be Starsky & Hutch. So why the hell is nobody getting hurt?

I win.

Today, we officially scrapped pretentious-art-guy's script, on our tutors' recommendation. Hah. Thank you, universe, for the ego boost.

I've also been watching Castle. I really enjoyed the first season. I'm mostly through the second one now, and feel that the show has kind of slipped into the same-old, same-old routine of all procedural cop shows. It's still decent, though. And I want to write kinky humiliation Beckett/Castle PWPs. (How hot is Stana Katic? I think she's the only aspect I remember in a positive way about Quantum of Solace.)
