Castle: The Complete Sixth Season DVD Review

Castle

For the last last few years, one of the most feverishly beloved shows on ABC has been the Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic starring mystery series, Castle. The show follows Richard Castle, a renowned crime novelist, who follows NYPD detective Kate Beckett, the muse for his latest novel character, Nikki Heat. But of course, nothing is ever that easy, as Castle and Beckett become romantically entangled, get caught in the middle of bizarre cases, and try to have a normal love life in the process. Now, Disney brings home all the murder, mystery, and passion to DVD in Castle: The Complete Sixth Season, a new five disc set that sees all 23 episodes of the show’s sixth season compiled in one place.

The Season Six synopsis is as follows:

After Castle’s stunning romantic proposal to Beckett, what happens next? TV’s magnetic crime-fighting couple faces a whole new set of challenges as they juggle wedding plans and their most intriguing cases yet in ABC’s “Castle: The Complete Sixth Season”.

Beckett’s new job with the Justice Department takes her away from the wisecracking love of her life. But Castle’s devotion to his new fiancee — and her fascinating line of work — jeopardizes her career and creates a chain of events that might separate them forever. Back on the home front, Castle is none too pleased to discover his daughter has seemingly been captivated by, and now living with, her new, free-spirited boyfriend. It’s a season of surprises you won’t want to miss!

Experience every engaging moment of “Castle”‘s brilliant sixth season, complete with all 23 unforgettable episodes, plus never-before-seen bonus features only available on DVD.

As an avid watcher of the show, this is one of the DVD releases I always look forward to, and always, the wait is always worth it. The Sixth Season continues to be incredibly well written, funny, and full of fun. The big story arc season involves Castle and Beckett as they try to plan their wedding, which many times leads to comical results, between trying to solve the murders in New York City. The thing that keeps the series so interesting is in the characters, something that hasn’t changed even now. Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic have always been an excellent pairing, and the two have absolutely phenomenal chemistry. As their characters relationship has grown, the two have become more electric, and that continues here. It’s great to see that even these many seasons later, the show and the characters, are still growing and fun to watch. Especially in a show like this, because sometimes shows can implode once you get rid of the “will they-won’t they” tension, but thankfully Castle has moved the other direction, and the characters being together has made the show better.

As always, ABC has brought the show to DVD with all its episodes, as well as new set of special features. Of course, the set comes with the customary set of bloopers and deleted scenes, but this scene also offers a few other things. Of course, commentaries are always fun, but this time around, we have a character commentary from Detectives Ryan and Esposito, the show’s longest supporting characters, and it’s a breezy and fun listen. A Few of Our Favorite Things has the series cast remembering some of their favorite moments making the series, and it’s another fun little watch, and while it’s not incredibly informative, it’s good to see the cast waxing nostalgic about the series. The most informative feature this time around is On Location with Stana, which follows Stana Katic around set, as she talks about her character, what it’s like to play her, and her process of how she plays her. It’s something fans of the series will certainly enjoy.

Castle: The Complete Sixth Season continues the series’ great run, bringing another fun and breezy run of 23 episodes to fans. The season ends on a cliffhanger that fans are sure to be talking about and looking forward to resolving, and that’s the sign of a great show. The new five disc set is a rather fantastic, because the show is an easy binge watch, and features some fun special features. For fans of the series, a pick up of the new set is a no brainer. If you’re a new comer, this isn’t the best place to jump in, but the show is still a lot of fun and you’ll still get a kick out of it. Definitely a worthy release for the most ardent TV collectors.
