It's a Picspam sort of day!  
Now, I enjoy Castle - it's a light-hearted show and while I kind of wish it wasn't so predictable, that's also not the point, so it's okay.

However, HOTASS DETECTIVE TRIANGLE FODDER definitely make it a must-see.

Our introduction: Kate Beckett is whaling away on the punching bag when this guy we don't know (if you aren't, y'know, me) comes strolling in to work out, too. Beckett pays him no attention at all. Seemingly.

So he walks in and notices Kate.

And then he checks her out AGAIN.

Then, he smiles, because she is HOT. He wants her to notice him.

Then, because he is a boy, tries displays of physical strength to get her attention.

It totally works on me, but I'm not as cool as Beckett.


Then, because she's still not looking, he decides he needs to be a little more obvious.


So he offers to hold her punching bag for her. And she hits HARD.

And he is smitten.

Then, when she's going to answer her phone, HE CHECKS HER OUT AGAIN.

Phoar! And that's just the intro.

There was actually more to the episode, besides this and the fight/interrogation/stall tactic of HOTNESS. It was good that it really revolved around Esposito, which gave him an opportunity to shine, plus freed the Beckett and Castle to deal with this subplot. I might've been more fooled by Demming the Red Herring if I didn't know Trucco was coming back, maybe. Castle and his "no flag on the play" when he claims to have no interest-- yeah, oops. hee. (and that last bit when Castle finds out Demming's alibi is coaching basketball for poor kids, "of course he does.")

And even Lanie, who's totally a B/C shipper was all over the new guy too, which was hilarious.

If we don't get Kate/Tom kissage, I'm going to be a very very sad puppy.

Arm!porn! eyecandy! adorableness! humor! badassery!

And did I mention the arm!porn? :D

Even with the addition of Trucco, I couldn't really get into this show. That being said, I enjoyed the opening montage very much :D

it's a very *looks around warily for crazy Browncoats*... disposable show for me. I enjoy it if I catch it, but If I miss one it's no big deal.

But Trucco porn certainly made it MUCH better! :D

I honestly have no idea why I can't get into it. I've tried several times. I watched the first few episodes then a few toward the end of the first season but it just never...clicked for me. Which is a darn shame because of my undying love for Nathan. As much as I liked seeing Nathan & Trucco on-screen together, I didn't connect at all to the case or any of the characters.

I always say that I'm not a fan of procedurals but I do like Bones & Criminal Minds. I thought Castle would be another show to add to that list but...no so much:)

You know its still weird for me to see his arms without the tatoo

I know! Hopefully we'll get a shirtless scene and see his real one, at least. It's only fair when Castle got to sleep with the t.v. show girl, that Kate should get some action too...

I think my current favorite part was, after interrogating Racine, Beckett is totally ogling Demming's ass as he walks off.

Me too! That ep was so deliciously designed as Trucco-porn, I swear. Even the guys were grudgingly smitten, in their way. I might have giggled hysterically at the "He's too pretty!" line as well as the coaching poor kids' sports one.

It WAS total Trucco porn! I'm sure somewhere there is complaining about that, but, it was awesome.

That whole scene when Castle's so eager to think the worst was funny, and then cap's it off with not only is he innocent, he's even BETTER than they thought. And Nathan's face just gets that wonderful OH CRAP look on it. lololol

Trucco's prettiness is undeniable, even by Castle.

I may have had a nerdgasm at Trucco and Fillion sharing scenes.

It was both pretty and awesome, wasn't it? *sigh*

Squee! The gratuitous pull up scene - complete with a close up on the biceps - was might fine Trucco porn. And the "too pretty" and the whole coaching underpriviledged youth sports thing. Love it!
lizardbeth: Demminglizardbeth_j on April 22nd, 2010 02:56 am (UTC)
When the scene started I was all, "They're not doing this. They're not. OMG THEY ARE." Like, introducing him in the suit wasn't enough, so they had to go through the whole LINGERING CAMERA close-up first to make sure we got it.

Dear Castle PTB, I don't think I quite got it. Could you do it again, just to make sure I understand? :))
