Today I let my mind wander off to the first half of the Castle series run to pick one random musing for each season.  As always, my mind is a strange place so hope you enjoy these pickings!


A typical bath tub is 80 gallons in a hotel room on average.
Price of motor oil 2.59 (likely less in 2009)
Full tub of oil would cost 828.80 if buying by the quart

If buying  a 5 gallon jug the tab is 805.76
Musta make a ton of tips working the bar Tuesday night.

Oh by the way, what low cost hotel SRO has claw foot tubs?



I love the uniqueness of this death, however, as we see below Lanie kind of foreshadows it in the dialogue below:


LANIE:  He’s not even my first death by fallen object this month. Two weeks ago, an investment banker took a frozen sausage to the head from a tenth-floor window ledge.


Three episodes later, Balthazar Wolf. meets his doom thru liquid nitrogen that freezes on contact.  Loved that his hand shatters on the floor!



Kate gets her helmet, did she ride her bike to Work? Did they leave on separate motorcycles or did she hang onto DMB.  Not like her to take the back seat so to speak.   I wonder how often Kate did take that mode of transportation.  As the show progresses, she arrives at murder scenes in the Crown Vic at all hours of the day and night so I would guess it was not likely she rode often so this must have been a planned date so to speak.  Would have liked a Castle quip or innuendo regarding protection (helmet).  The scene was dying for one.


Murder at an art gallery.  Second episode featuring art.  Kate seemed comfortable in this environment and could not resist teasing Castle of his narrow minded view of art.  Then she steps up her game big time!


BECKETT:  No. The closest I came to taking an art class was posing for one, as a model.

CASTLE:  Wait .. .posing in…?

BECKETT:  Not a stitch.  


Seeing Castle’s jaw drop was priceless, so I wondered what Castle did with his new found information.  It would have been awesome if he “investigated” and perhaps tracked down the artist and purchased the painting.  Could have been really a fun scene or two between CASKETT. .


Have a wonderful week!

    Ok John, those were wonderful. Why were you not writing the later seasons. They would have been so much better.

    Having ridden on the back of a motorcycle behind my Hubby, I have to say it’s fun and sexy. I wouldn’t expect Kate to ride on the back, so I agree with you on that. She’s too in need of control. What did you think of the moment in season 8 when Rick has Kate’s bike refurbished and got one of his own?

      Initially I loved it then started to over think it since the writers were tossing things at these wall to try to clean up loose ties

    Great! Loved it! I have the 8 seasons on streaming and watch them so much I am finally getting a little over it. But it is amazing the things you notice after watching the episodes so many times.
