I really like "Castle", and the writers usually have a lot of fun with the episodes.

I'm curious how they do with tonight's crime: "A star swimmer with Olympic dreams is found dead in a pool..."

Its mostly because Nathan Fillion is the man. (As I put on my red coat)

You can watch the whole episode it looks like.

Red or brown? (Fillion is great, though I haven't watched too much Castle.)

Not necessarily a bad thing...

I've got to be honest. I didn't think his character was believable in Firefly and I don't think it's believable in Castle, either. The girl is awfully attractive, though. :banana:

Of course he's not believable! He's Captain Malcolm Reynolds! I just haven't watched the show in a good 6 months. :( stupid job taking over my life...

Well, yeah... She provides a reason to watch even when the dialog is bad. :)

Gotta say my favorite swimming-themed tv episode is, oddly, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode 'Go Fish'. When you start out the show with a quote from Gertrude Ederle and then have subtext turned text straight out of the old DDR doping controversives, it always felt like one of the people in on that script was One of Us.

If it's a choice between "real" and "entertaining", always go with the later.
He also does small things which would be appropriate for such an outlandish character, so in that sense it makes it more believable for me.

Besides, "believable" is a grey area.
How believable is Charlie Sheen?
Not any of his acting roles, I mean in real life. :thhbbb:

I'm not sure "Charlie Sheen" and "real life" should be used together.
