Stars Provide Appeal for ‘Castle’

Mar 9, 2009  •  Post A Comment

ABC’s new drama “Castle,” an update on “Remington Steele,” relies on the appeal of its stars, USA Today says in a review. “None of the episodes is likely to keep you up at night puzzling out the intricacies of the mystery, but they won’t bore you or insult your intelligence. ‘Castle’ exists to exploit the appeal of its stars and the amusing byplay between their characters, and it does that with admirable efficiency,” the paper says. “Whether that’s good enough is ultimately up to you.” The Los Angeles Times says the problem with “Castle” is that “the crimes are nowhere as compelling as the characters.”
