Even worse.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

Well they got the daughter and the Brit chick. Note they been featuring these two much more for over a year.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

May not be on my watch list next season sad

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

It's been going downhill for a while now.  The last 2 seasons have been fillers.
I guess they are looking to do a type of spin off with just Castle, his daughter and the British chic as a PI group and slowly fade away everything else.

Also, does anyone else think Nathan has put on a lot of weight recently.?

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

I agree with Wizard,the show has been rather stale and pointless for a good while and indeed Nathan has put on a few pounds(but who am I to talk).

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

Well they had to do something, the whole issue of them not wanting to actually work together has pretty much killed the show anyway, at least now it has a VERY slim chance of surviving a little longer.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

Maybe it would be better to end it, not dragging it out one more season...as the last ones were rather dull also
Maybe they will come up with some twist that will make the show better...one can only dream smile

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

The show may be "Castle", but from day one, its been about the Castle-Beckett relationship. 

How, it's been made clear by the writers that they aren't really made for each other.  After all these years together, they don't really trust each other.   I just hope they literally kill off her character.  Anything else would be half-assed, like the rest of season 8.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

I also think that it would be best to kill her off and get a fresh start

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

The show could do well without Beckett and get a fresh start.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

The problem with a show who's theme/plot/arc rests, in part at least, on a "will they won't they" is, where do you take the show once "they have"?

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

Well, if it were cable there could be lots of nude scenes (although both the leads might use body doubles, for different reasons).

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

I doubt this one will move to the CW or cable now that its been cancelled. Not a bad run. I always enjoyed it.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

Cancelled.

Maybe it's for the best.   It was getting stupid and every episode seemed like a filler.

It has always bothered be that as a married couple they called each other by their last names.  They could do a spin off with his PI service, but that would only last 1 season I think.  It would depend on how they end this show.

Looking forward to the next Nathan Fillion show.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

A Firefly reboot on Netflix, cable or whatever?

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

So...  That's the end of that then.  Hmmm.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

I'm going to pretend that the last scene (the flash forward) was just a dream.  It's obvious that part wouldn't have been there if the show was continued for a 9th season.

Apparently they filmed two endings, one where they lived happily ever after and one... not.

I think the ending they showed was crap.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

The finale was just right for the entire show. Shallow and forgettable.

I have to agree, the last few seasons were just awful fillers.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

I honestly enjoyed how bad the "story arcs" were. Like, "How big of a bullshit they'll come up with now. Oh, Castle has amnesia? Awesome, let's do this." I just watched it for the character interactions and pleasently empty cases of the week.

Re: Becket Out for the 9th season?

Finally watched it. Wow. I guess we all owe the writer of the final True Blood episode a big apology.
