Nathan said he knows that Castle fans get mad when he talks about Firefly? I don’t think that’s fair because if he just mentioned the show it’d be fine. It’s the context in which he talks about Firefly compared to Castle that matters. It just bothers me how he talks about Castle even as far as saying it’s strawberry ice cream that he just settles for when he’ll always want chocolate which is Firefly. Even if he didn’t mean it as an offense, he has to know how this must feel to some Castle fans.

Looking forward to the video of his panel and the matter of fact tone that I’m sure this was delivered rather than the depreciating/insulting one that people seem to want him to have used. And, from all reports, he never said settle or even implied that he’s settling. That’s a bunch of fans putting words in his mouth because they can’t accept that he isn’t head over ass in love with Castle. 
I get that its annoying, sometimes I wish Nathan would stop talking about Firefly, but the fact is that he loves it. It’s the most fun he’s ever had on a set, it was working with a group of people that he still is very close to today, and it was taken away from them unexpectedly and suddenly after months of the best sleep-away camp ever. The fact is that he will never get over it/stop talking about it/stop singing its praises and people are better off just accepting it. 
The thing about actors? A job is a job. Actors are happy to be on a set with other actors, delving into a character and running lines. Fillion has never played any character as long as he has played Richard Castle which means that he has never had to sustain interest/carry a lead through six years worth of material. His work outside Castle has largely been supporting/cameo roles because, I suspect, after shooting 14+ hour days ten months of the year, he wants to take a freaking vacation. I don’t blame him, I’d absolutely do the same thing and spend my two months off doing fun little one-off characters that keep me entertained. 
The fact is that he is not required to love Castle as much as we do. He obviously enjoys spending time on the set with the cast and crew (for the love of God, do not reply to this with bullshit about Stana. I don’t care.), and clearly has a good time working. So what if it doesn’t equal to the depth of his love and enthusiasm for Firefly. You can’t tell that on the screen, therefore he is doing his job and doing it well and if you think he isn’t? That’s your personal bias coming to play, I’m absolutely sure. 

It’s been a busy few days and I had kind of forgotten about this post until I heard the audio file of the SLC panel. After listening to the file I am reminded how terribly easy it is for people to take ANYTHING out of context.
Before I really get into this though, I want to preface this by mentioning that at one of the Castle panels, Penney Johnson Gerald was asked a question about her character from Deep Space Nine. She was very kind, and clear with her answer. She told them she didn’t know, because she wasn’t a fan of the show and that she is aware of what goes on on Castle, because she is a big fan of the show. That doesn’t mean she didn’t give her all on Deep Space Nine. She just wasn’t a fan and Castle fans did not castigate her the way they go after Nathan for everything. 
That being said, after listening to the panel, I have even more respect for Nathan. He is set in his beliefs and feelings about the show and he doesn’t let the rantings of some fans cause him to change his feelings for the show. As he stated the Firefly is important to him. Why that can not be respected baffles me. Especially from Castle fans on tumblr who are very quick to get upset when things they believe in and love are not respected.
He was also very complimentary of Castle. And he mentioned how much he enjoys doing Castle, more than once. Nobody likes having their words taken out of context, so why does it continue to happen on here.

This! The idea that I am owed total devotion from the casts of my favorite shows is so foreign to me. Nathan is not the bad guy here.

What the folks who criticize Nathan for “not loving Castle best” forget (or maybe don’t even know) is that Firefly happened to Nathan at a very important time of his life. He was in his early thirties, had never been a lead in a tv show or movies at that stage, and indeed had suffered many auditions in which TPTB questioned whether or not he would be able to carry a show as the lead actor. Joss Whedon saw that in him and put his faith in what he believed were Nathan’s leadership qualities and was not disappointed in his choice. Joss gave Nathan the chance to be all that Nathan knew he was. Firefly literally launched Nathan’s career as an actor. The perks to this opportunity were the enduring friendships of the other actors and Firefly crew, and networking opportunities that stemmed from that little tv show that could. Nathan is mightily aware of this turning point in his life, and he is genuinely choked up and emotional about the solid chance it gave him to be the actor and human being he had dreamed of becoming as a young man. Folks, please realize that Castle wouldn’t be the show we love so much if Nathan had not been given the Malcolm Reynolds job. No one would have heard of Nathan Fillion beyond his 3 years on OLTL and Two Guys and a Girl. The part of Richard Castle would have gone to some other actor. Nathan was offered the part of Richard Castle and Nathan told the producers to look no further. This was his part. Without Firefly, the Castle producers wouldn’t have heard of him and all the wonderful experiences at Raleigh Studios and the adoration he receives at sci-fi conventions would not exist. Firefly literally changed his life for the better and he is very grateful. He has also expressed a great deal of gratitude for the chance of being on a long-running and much-loved tv show that gave him more exposure than just Firefly ever could. Firefly gave him his professional life, and Castle sustained it. You bet he’s grateful. Put yourself in his shoes. Wouldn’t you be?

In Nikki Heat when Kate says- next thing, she'll steal my boyfriend, is she referring to Josh, Castle or the generic concept?

Castle, symbolically. Yes he’s not her boyfriend, but Rhodes clearly sees the unresolved sexual tension between, uses it to try and seduce Castle, takes coffee from Castle (symbolically very important), asks Beckett for permission to sleep with Castle, Beckett gets jealous over Castle being attracted to Rhodes etc.

Rhodes never even meets Josh, or even is aware of his existence.

While that ep is hilarious for all sorts of reasons, it is extremely important for underlining just how possessive Beckett is of Castle and his affections in the aftermath of his break-up with Gina (remember that the filming order was different to the airing order for NH and PYD).

I never knew that NH was suppose to come after PYD that makes SO much sense now, I was always so confused why Gina isn’t mentioned in NH especially given the fact that Beckett thought castle slept with her and then castle broke up with Gina in PYD why would ABC do that?

I can’t find an actual source on this after a quick google search, but in an earlier discussion about eps being swapped around, someone told me that 3x11 was the first ep after the Christmas break that season, ABC wanted the better episode with big-name guest star up front to draw in the viewership. As good a reason as any (I like PYD, but NH is a far more enjoyable ep and Laura Prepon is a powerhouse scene-stealer in it).

I took it as being not necessarily a direct reference to Castle or Josh, but to the early ‘90’s spate of “whacko female” movies such as Single White Female, where a woman makes herself look almost exactly like her roommate in order to take over her life.

Mere days before Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo, and I have the sniffles. THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!

- And… that’s it. That was the last entry in the diary.
- What do you mean, that’s it? What happened to Joe? What happened to Vera?
- I don’t know.

I freaking love this scene! We see just how in love she is with his story telling. Not to mention how adorable it is when she gets frustrated cause she doesn’t know the end. ;)

LOL i wonder if he sometimes reads a new Nikki Heat chapter to her and she gets this frustrated when he hasn’t written anymore and he refuses to tell her how to ends until he finishes writing the next chapter

I like to picture her sometimes tackling him and shaking his shoulders while she demands for him to just teeeeellll her. Especially when he’s left that chapter on a particularly teasing note.

… what Castle fans would love to do to Andrew Marlowe.

When construction workers uncover the body of an infamous New York mobster from the 70s, Castle and Beckett must dig into the past to solve his murder! #Castle

So I’m officially dead.
Castle told Beckett she looks hot in her 70s outfit
Lanie went ALL out for her part and her sass is so wonderful
I can’t wait to see the whole episode. I’m so freaking excited!

Tamala has said she wanted Pam Grier to play her mother; in this episode, she gets to play Pam Grier! This is awesome!!

Yes guys the post about being annoyed with the hiatus I understand why they do it im in film and study this kind of thing in school, its random because of the scheduling fuck ups they had this year because of the olympics so everyone calm your tits

Also, the shooting schedule for the final four episodes was from Feb. 27 to April 11, a total of 6.5 weeks, and the production team needs time to put it all together. I far prefer the four final eps. to be broadcast together in a cohesive run, rather than showing 2 reruns, then 2 original eps., then 2 reruns, then the final 2 episodes. And if the final four were written precisely to construct plot and build tension, it would work much better with 4 together than chopping up the intrigue into smaller parts.
