Even though Castle is a show adored by millions of fans, we all know that nothing is ever completely perfect. The show is a tremendous success for ABC on Monday nights, but the lack of continuity has been a topic of debate among the fans for months now and it was something that had to be addressed.
Earlier this week, after talking to a group of fans over at ABC’s Official Castle Boards, I wrote an article about the lack of continuity that has been bothering a lot of people – I’m glad it wasn’t just me – for a while. They had a lot to say and I took all their points and turned into the article “Is Lack Of Continuity A Problem For Castle?”.
The debate has been raging on in the comments of that article for the past couple of days and even Castle’s creator, Andrew W. Marlowe, has joined in.
Andrew Marlowe says:
I hear you guys. Some of the stuff you mention is stuff we plan on following up on next season (3XK -Ryan having his gun taken and it being used in another murder, etc.), and some of it is stuff we just haven’t been able to find a place for organically in storytelling in subsequent episodes without slowing down the other aspects of the show. We do our best to balance the procedural and personal over the course of the season without going too fast or slow. But we appreciate the feedback.
So there it is, Castle fans. They are listening to what you all have to say about your favorite show.
