TVLine reports that that only a couple of elements are solved by the time the hour ends and as a result, Beckett is left feeling unsatisfied. Apparently discovering the ‘who, why, and how’ of Rick’s disappearing act will be one of the core focuses of the season.

After Rick and Kate’s first wedding attempted was thwarted because elf the car crash, TVLine is now reporting that a Caskett wedding will take place in Season 7.

At Comic-Con, Fillion also touched on the possibilities of the writers greenlighting the wedding again.

“‘How much longer can we make people wait for a wedding’? becomes my question,” he said. “You don’t want people to become bored in waiting.”

Series creator Andrew W. Marlowe also referenced the wedding in a chat with TVLine.

“We know that we owe them a wedding that accurately reflects who Castle and Beckett are.”

The Derrick Storm novels written by fictional character Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) on Castle may soon be getting their own standalone series.

TVGuide.com reports that ABC is developing a show based on the best-selling mystery books, which have been published in real life, Variety reports. Gregory Poirier from Missing is writing the pilot and executive-producing with Castle creator Andrew Marlowe (who announced this summer that he’s stepping down as Castle‘s primary showrunner).

Derrick Storm, the hero of the novels, is a spy who helps the CIA with secret missions.

Castle’s Season 7 premiere airs Monday, September 29 at 10 pm on ABC.

Castle Spoilers: Who Ran Castle Off The Road? It Isn’t Who You Think http://insidepulse.com/2014/08/05/castle-spoilers-who-ran-castle-off-the-road-it-isnt-who-you-think/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/08/05/castle-spoilers-who-ran-castle-off-the-road-it-isnt-who-you-think/#comments Tue, 05 Aug 2014 21:00:09 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=364192 Castle, he had been run off the road by someone driving an SUV... leaving Beckett to find his flaming car.]]> When we last left Castle, he had been run off the road by someone driving an SUV… leaving Beckett to find his flaming car.

When the show returns, fans of the series will be happy to know that Castle isn’t dead, now was it even a suggested plot point. The new showrunner for the series spoke to TVGuide and said that the perpetrator was a characters that fans haven’t seen before, and it won’t be Bracken or 3XK.

“The mythology we’re getting into is going to go past all that into some new territory,” David Amann said. “Those are all fair game, but it’s not going to be what the opening of the season is about.” Instead, look for this ordeal to unearth details about Castle that perhaps the mystery novelist never even knew about himself. And how will Beckett react to the revelations? “Things that are going to come to light that are going to be unsettling for Beckett,” Amann teases. “But we’re committed to that relationship. She loves this guy. These are things that are part of who he is. I don’t think what happened to Castle is going to disrupt the trajectory of that relationship, at least not in the long term.”

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2014 – Second Round Voting Begins with Top Seeds The Walking Dead, Burn Notice, Scandal, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and More http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/07/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-second-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-t/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/07/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-second-round-voting-begins-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang-t/#comments Mon, 07 Apr 2014 11:00:49 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=352791 The first round voting has ended and there were a few upsets. But like I said from the beginning the numbers next to show names don’t mean a whole lot if they don’t get voted to the next round. There were also lots of close match ups. Quite a few match ups came down to a single vote. Lets take a look at the first round action.

The ABC Region saw two “upsets”. #4 Glee lost to Eastbound and Down with 60% of the vote. #5 Survivor had a bigger loss to Doctor Who, who won with 73% of the vote. The Walking Dead dominated as expected with a 90% win. Most of the rest of the match ups weren’t all that close. The only close match up was #3 New Girl barely getting by Bates Motel with a 54% win.

The FOX Region also saw the same two “upsets” as the ABC Region. #4 Downton Abbey lost by 63% to Arrested Development. #5 Chicago Fire also lost by 64% to Person of Interest. #1 Burn Notice, #2 Modern Family, #8 Family Guy, and South Park all dominated with over 80% wins. But the rest of the match ups in this region were extremely close. Revolution beat Falling Skies by 1 vote. Mike & Molly also won by 1 vote over White Collar. #3 The Blacklist barely survived over The Simpsons by 3 votes. Workaholics pulled off a third upset in this region by beating #7 2 Broke Girls by 2 votes. This was by far the closest and most upset region.

The CBS Region only had one upset. #6 Duck Dynasty lost by 2 votes to Sullivan & Son. #1 Breaking Bad dominated with a 88% win. #5 Game of Thrones won by a even larger 93%. But #2 How I Met Mother had the biggest margin of the victory in the first round with 94%. Homeland also had a big margin of victory. Most of the rest of the match ups were closer. The Vampire Diaries won by 1 vote over The Newsroom. True Blood won by 1 vote over The Daily Show. Nashville won by 2 votes over CSI. The Following also won by 4 votes over Rookie Blue.

The NBC Region was the only region to have no upsets, but most of the match ups were either really close or blowouts. #8 Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., #5 NCIS, and #6 Sons of Anarchy had over 90% wins each. Revenge, #3 Pretty Little Liars, #1 Big Bang Theory, and Community also had big 80% wins. But #4 Grey’s Anatomy and #2 Scandal were almost upset. Grey’s Anatomy beat Ray Donovan by 3 votes, and Scandal beat Men at Work by only 58% of the vote. NCIS: Los Angeles beat Supernatural by only 1 vote. Other close match ups included The Colbert Report with a 4 vote victory over Elementary, Last Man Standing with a 3 vote win over The Millers, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine with a 4 vote victory over Vikings.

So a few surprises in the first round, and a few upsets. One thing is for sure, reality shows were not treated very kindly in this tournament. Only two of them have moved on to the second round. But now things could get interesting. The second round voting has begun. We have 64 shows left, so go vote and remember to tell everyone you know to vote too!

If you don’t know what this is all about, go back to the First Round Voting Page and get all of the details there. If you did vote in the first round, you should already know, so go check out the updated bracket for yourself by going here:

2014 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on what is the best show RIGHT NOW. Some of these shows have been around for years, but if they are not at the top of their game in their current season, and a newer show is, then you should vote for the newer show. Past performance might come into play, but you should judge these shows on their merits today.

Now on with the matchups and let the voting begin!

Best TV Show March Madness Bracket Tournament 2014 – First Round Voting Continues with Top Seeds The Walking Dead, Burn Notice, Scandal, Modern Family, Breaking Bad, New Girl, Dexter, Big Bang Theory, How I Met Your Mother and More http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/01/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-first-round-voting-continues-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/04/01/best-tv-show-march-madness-bracket-tournament-2014-first-round-voting-continues-with-top-seeds-the-walking-dead-burn-notice-scandal-modern-family-breaking-bad-new-girl-dexter-big-bang/#comments Tue, 01 Apr 2014 21:43:18 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=352610 It is time once again for the annual Inside Pulse TV Tournament. Get out your green beer! The biggest and most talked about tournament during the “March Madness” season is back! So stop working or pretending to work and take a look at this year’s bracket.

It’s been two years since the last “Best TV Show” tournament, but so much has changed in the world of TV. Roughly one-third of the shows that were in the 2012 “Best TV Show” tournament are no longer on the air. In addition, cable television and premium channel shows have gotten better while network television shows have stayed about the same. Maybe that is why for the first time last year all of the dramas nominated for an Emmy were not on network television. Lets not forget that this past year Netflix and Amazon have jumped into the original television scene as well. They have released some critically acclaimed shows that can’t be ignored. So lets get to this year’s tournament.

There are 128 shows in this year’s tournament, and believe it or not, it was tough to narrow it down that much. To qualify for this year’s tournament, a show had to have aired a new episode since June 2013. So that automatically disqualifies a few shows from HBO and SHOWTIME and a few cable shows who won’t be back with new seasons until later this year.

There are 32 seeded shows in the tournament. The seeds were selected based on four different criteria: live ratings, DVR ratings, awards, and most-talked about. If a show was watched by a lot people LIVE or on DVR within a few days; it was talked about a lot the next day on social networks; and it got nominated for awards, it likely was selected as a higher seed. The seeds really don’t mean a whole lot, though. If a show is better, just vote for that show.

A few more things before you get to the bracket. Just like the real NCAA Tournament, there were some automatic qualifying shows. They might have been in lesser conferences i.e. networks, but they each won their network tournament to earn a spot in the championship tournament. So you will see a few shows from each of the “lesser” cable networks with more from the “upper” cable and premium networks. But the majority of shows come from ABC, FOX, NBC, CBS, and CW. Even with 128 shows, I’m sure there are still some of your favorites that didn’t make it into the field. But the majority of your favorites should be there. Take a look at the bracket yourself by going here:

2014 Inside Pulse Best Television Show Tournament Bracket

Remember, when you do place your votes in this tournament, you should always vote on what is the best show RIGHT NOW. Some of these shows have been around for years, but if they are not at the top of their game in their current season, and a newer show is, then you should vote for the newer show. Past performance might come into play, but you should judge these shows on their merits today.

As you can see there are four different regions with 8 top seeds each, and 24 other shows. There are 64 matchups in the first round that need YOUR votes! So the time is now. Tell all your friends. It’s up to YOU to VOTE for which show you think is the best on TV. Make sure to vote for all the matchups as every vote counts.

Castle Quick Shot – 6×13 – ‘Limelight’ http://insidepulse.com/2014/01/22/castle-quick-shot-6x13-limelight/ http://insidepulse.com/2014/01/22/castle-quick-shot-6x13-limelight/#comments Thu, 23 Jan 2014 00:21:09 +0000 http://insidepulse.com/?p=347431 beckettcastle

Where can I get a pair of Beckett’s bike pajamas?

That’s is really the only pressing question on my mind after this week’s Castle.

Don’t me wrong, the episode posed number of interesting issues (and solved a few) – Kate’s coming to terms with Castle’s fame, Alexis’ realization that Pi may not be the guy for her – but nearly all of it was coated in cliched Mandy mystery which was, fittingly, a not-so-hot mess.

There were a few key problems:

Think about Miley Cyrus for a second. Think about how much you never want to see her riding that godforsaken wrecking ball ever again. Or hear the word Twerk. So, then why would we want a pseudo-Miley popping up during an episode of Castle? This entire episode hinged on the assumption that fans would feel an ounce of sympathy for this girl, but the truth is, no one cares about Miley, just like no one cared about Mandy. Did I lose you Miley fans? #SorryI’mNotSorry.

Castle and Beckett are usually the fallback when a mystery falls flat. The promise of the first scene was that Beckett would come face-to-face with the struggle of being engaged to someone in the public eye. While the episode touched on it – her minor annoyance at Castle not denying the reporter’s rumours, Espo and Ryan mocking her, and fielding a call from her very confused Dad, that was all we got – touches of it. The end result with Beckett placing the engagement announcement in the paper was a sweet development (so many FEELS), but she’s been built up as such a private person over the years that a gesture like that – a major turn for her character – deserved to be explored so much more than poor, sad little Mandy.

But of course, it is Castle, and there are always things to love:

Alexis’ return. Her character has the fanbase divided this year, but Molly Quinn is irresistible on screen and added a much-needed dose of humour to the otherwise predictable plot. It’s was nice to see Pi only so much as it was nice to hear that Alexis was no longer into Pi. Best line of the night was Mandy referencing Alexis’ ‘Grandma scarf’, though I felt strangely offended for Martha. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I, too, may own that scarf.)

Espo and Ryan teasing Beckett about Castle’s love life, then poking in while the two shared an embrace. The relationship between the four is really what makes this show special and the moment was too goofy and genuine to not love, however short.

How much do you love that Castle is still gunning for that wedding in space? I would rather see a wedding in space than a wedding at City Hall (as hinted last week)– just saying.

The show-opening Caskett scene – with the two enjoying their morning with some coffee and tabloid trash – was precious. Fans are always demanding a return to the sexy scenes between Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic, but often miss the best part of their chemistry – it’s evolved. There’s beauty in the ease these characters have with each other now, when you consider how far they’ve come to earn it. They don’t need to overdo it with big displays of PDA to mark their love, we just sort of know it’s there. Some may say they are void of passion, but I wouldn’t wear my best bicycle pajamas in front of just anyone.

No but really, where do I get a pair?
