For 8 years this has been one of my favorite shows. The charisma and childlike curiosity of Rick "Castle" is entirely enjoyable, and it was joyous to see the interactions with Kate, her typical procedure-centric attitude which occasionally let reveal a similar mischievously fun persona underneath.

At some times this show was a standard (good) police provedural "murder of the week" type, but occasionally let itself stretch and entertain more fantastical story-lines. Secret underground bunkers stretching across NYC, a man who couldn't die, a hundred year battle against satanic cultists, a sword-fighting riddle hunt, and my favorite episode with actual NINJAS.

Given the amazing cast of characters and story it was the greatest regret (and shock) to hear this show was canceled. It was obvious the showrunners didn't expect the cancellation either, as the season 8 finale ended up becoming the series finale, and it wasn't pretty. The show ended with a scene tacked onto the episode aftermath with only a voiceover and written screen message saying "7 years later". Makes me incredibly sad to have the show end this way, but I can say without hesitation that these 8 seasons are entirely worth watching. Sit tight and enjoy.
