"Yeah. I think they were afraid that if they got us on a horse too early, there might not be Castle for the next 23 episodes."

Yeah, horses are really dangerous. Cuz Stana has ridden since she was a kid and Nathan was in some obscure western called Firefly.

Horses are still dangerous though.  You wouldn’t want them driving stunt cars because they’ve been driving for years, right?

Horses aren’t stunt cars. The episode was shot at Paramount Ranch. Paramount has a stable of cast horses who are so well-trained and gentle, it would be more dangerous to walk down a sidewalk wearing flipflops. And no one stops actors from doing that.

Seriously?  You’re comparing falling off a horse to tripping on the sidewalk?  As someone who’s fallen off a horse (after ten years of riding experience with a trained jumping horse and an instructor nearby) let me tell you something, it hurts.  It’s not just a high ankle sprain either.  It is a broken bone, it’s surgery and if I had hit the ground at a slightly different angle, I would have landed on my head and I probably would have died. 

It’s the responsibility of the studio to keep the actors safe and riding horses is considered a dangerous stunt because if you fall, you can die.  I’m sure Stana or Nathan can ride horses in their own time if they wish but when they’re on studio time, no one wants to make unnecessary risks.  It’s just like any other job, if you injure yourself while at work, that company is liable.  I’m pretty sure no one at ABC or Paramount wants to be responsible for turning the stars of one of the highest rated crime dramas into a vegetable.

Why are you so upset at my suggestion? This is just a difference of opinion.

Yes, I’ve fallen off horses, and yes, I’ve tripped on sidewalks. Tripping on the sidewalk resulted in long-suffering knee injuries. My knees will never be right again. I’d much prefer falling of a horse.

My point was — that people who are used to riding horses and the horses they ride are gentle and are cared for by horse wranglers and not much is required more than a steady walk-trot, then that’s about as safe as a person can be if they are sitting on something moving that’s 3 feet off the ground. Both Stana and Nathan have driven sports cars during the course of filming Castle, so why not horses? Just seems stupid to me.

When I found out there was going to be a “western-themed” episode, of course my first thought was “Yay, horses.” Now I’m not so excited. And indications are that this is Kate’s birthday episode, the one that Castle was sure he could top after his birthday murder mystery 2 seasons ago, and I sure have my doubts. This ep has the potential to be great, or really disappointing. We shall see.

I’m not upset, I was just telling you there might be a reason you weren’t considering as to why they didn’t ride horses. There’s a very long list of things that are considered “stunts” even something as seemingly simple as running down the stairs.   They didn’t drive the car, I can almost guarantee you that it was a stunt person while the car was on motion or that it was filmed against a green screen.

I’m done now.

Nope, no green screen in To Love and Die in LA — that was oh so live on the street. Also in Lucky Stiff, Stana actually drove that Maserati — confirmed by one of the Castle crew.

It did occur to me a moment ago, however, that despite Stana’s assertion that riding horses might affect other episodes, the issue might have been more financial than safety. Like, “we only have enough budget for two horses and a wagon for two hours. That’s it.” Could very well be.

Beckett + ‘I love you’

File under: things I’ve never going to get tired of hearing, tbh.

Remember when we waited a full nine months to hear it from her? At this point, she has said those three little words more than Castle has (not that I’m keeping count…)

Always yes! More bacon icons!

but imagine castle and beckett having to explain to their children why they only have one grandpa and one grandma instead of two like everyone else

Hey, no. You can’t do that. You can’t just thrust these feels on to me. I didn’t ask for them.

Or explain to them that they have no cousins.

stanakaticland:

Friendly reminder that Stana Katic is the shortest out of all of her 5 other siblings. Let that sink in for a moment

They grow ‘em big in the midwest. And in Canada.

I was RAISED to say please & thank you, to have respect for my elders, lend a helping hand to those in need, hold the door for the person behind me, say excuse me when it’s needed, & to love people for who they are, not for what you can get from them. I was also taught to treat people the way I want to be treated! If you were raised this way too, reblog this…sadly, many won’t, because they weren’t, and it shows.
