  1. thought Castle was actually pretty entertaining, still love Nathan Fillion and though the ‘case’ wasn’t all that compelling i’m willing to give the chemistry between the two another view…

  2. caught up on Kings… all i can say is, really?… had elements of every good kid from meager means thrust into a world of privilege sort of story, but with the epic scale of things i wanted that to add more to the experience, or at least provide a taste of intrigue to come, but so far i wasn’t impressed with the characters or stories… and the whole butterfly thing, please….
