Nathan Fillion, star of the undeservedly short-lived Firefly series, is currently starring in, Castle, a popular series on ABC. Castle is about a mystery writer, Richard Castle, who teams up with a detective, Kate Beckett, to solve crimes in New York City. Richard Castle has just killed off the character of his best-selling series, and is struggling with ideas for a new book series. Enter Detective Kate Beckett, a smart and tough homicide detective that becomes Castle’s muse for his next series of books. Castle is able to pull strings with the mayor’s office, and is allowed to follow Detective Beckett on her cases. Although Castle’s non-traditional approach to solving crimes is very different from Detective Beckett’s more conventional approach, the two make a strong team. With witty humor, lots of banter, a bit of romance and a great soundtrack, Castle is an entertaining television program! The show is currently in its fourth season, but the first three seasons are available for checkout at the Library.
In a brilliant marketing ploy, several books “written” by Richard Castle have been published. These books are based on the Castle and Beckett characters and loosely follow some of the plotlines that the characters go through on the television program. All three books are also available at the Library.
