the journey to self enlightenment through television

The name is Beckett.  Kate Beckett.

One of my new favorite TV couples is Castle and Beckett.  Not only because I love Nathan Fillion and love seeing him in roles where there’s so much romantic tension.  OK.  I love seeing him in every role.  But Stana Kattic is just as amazing.  And they have a really great chemistry.  And they’re so cute together.

The Castle/Beckett on again/off again almost relationship has been going on for at least two seasons, even though the show is now in its fourth.  The first season was dedicated to getting to know the characters, and the second getting to see how they REALLY are once we get to know them.  It wasn’t until season three that we, and by we I mean ME, really start to get the itch about them being together.  He gets her coffee every day and tries to protect her.  She pretends she isn’t flattered and smitten with him and throws sexy teases in his direction to get a response.

They are truly an epic will they won’t they couple.  The only team that out-couples them, so far, is Booth and Bones, and they finally got together, sort of, and are having a baby.

Castle and Beckett’s current drama revolves around Beckett having been shot in the third season finale, Castle telling her he loved her, and Beckett remembering everything, but not telling anyone.  Only Castle finds out, and vows to back off because his opinion is that if she really cared, she would have said something sooner.

Oh, Castle.  Beckett is much more coy than that.  I don’t think she’ll say anything still.  She’s afraid of being hurt.  Plus, they’ve been through so much.  She doesn’t want to seem like the fool, or the vulnerable one.

Honestly, I’m happy they go through ups and downs.  I think it would be quite boring if they just got together and that was it.

Who is YOUR favorite tv couple?

Wonder what I’m doing?  It’s called the A to Z challenge.  Check it out here.

Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt 23 = Love.

And thanks to ABC, I now have 2 episodes to watch.  Talk about awesome.  And I think it’s a great advertising strategy in keeping with the times.  Clearly ABC has its fingers on the pulse of pop culture and budding technology, and I’m happy to know that ABC understands the Internet and the likelihood that they’ll get more ratings and buzz for the show using this word of mouth method they’re creating by putting a show online three weeks earlier than it is due to air on television.

And I love it.  Hubs and I were talking about how much the show is getting away with to be in Primetime.  But I think that is just what we need in a new sitcom: a limit pusher.  Especially when shows are going to start dropping like flies because this season’s failure is far from the brilliance of seasons past.  Cough, cough.  Two and a Half Men.  Ahem.  Office.  But that is merely speculation of course.

Honestly, though.  I needed another really GOOD sitcom.  Krysten Ritter and James Van der Beek are amazingly hysterical.  Krysten Ritter plays somewhat of a psychopath, but only in the a lying, cheating, sleep with her roommate’s fiance sort of way.  And James Van der Beek plays himself, only he’s a ladies man who hates and then loves that women love him for Dawson’s Creek.

Actually, after watching the first episode I went to Amazon to see if I could find the complete series of Dawson’s Creek so I could watch it.  Don’t judge me.

Oh, and of course I tweeted about my newfound love for the show.  And Krysten Ritter favorited it.  Be jealous.
