MONDAY MUSINGS: KISSES OF DECEPTION

DECEPTION – the action of deceiving someone, as stated by Miriam Webster.  With that in mind, the kiss has become a source of misdirection, trickery and downright chincanery on several episodes of CASTLE  With that in mind, I dug up four (obvious) instances where puckered lips were used in a ruse Read More

MONDAY MUSINGS: END OF SEASON FIVE

As season 5 progressed, CASTLE became truly established as “must-see” TV ON Monday nights (and every other night curtesy of a DVR and TNT).
