Fun, but kind of annoying
5 November 2014 | by phoenix-hourglassSee all my reviews

Castle's always been a gimmicky show, but for Pete's sake, this is stretching it for me. "The only way to catch the killer is to pretend it's 1970! It's foolproof!" Are you kidding me?

Granted I don't watch this show for one hundred percent accuracy, but still. The story has to take enormous leaps to make the gimmick work. At least in The Blue Butterfly, the period-themed sections were framed as a flashback. I would've been okay with something like that, but I just could not get lost in this story.

That said, it's still an enjoyable episode. The cast is certainly having fun, and despite the gimmick, the rest of the plot flows nicely and the witness (who you'd think would be 'whacky' since he's the one who facilitated the time warp) is a surprisingly deep character who would work in other episodes. And I made a false assumption about him, which is refreshing, because usually the twists are fairly predictable.
