IGN TV Reviews "Flowers For Your Grave." IGN TV offers their thoughts on the premier episode of Castle in advance of the series start.
The episode gets a score of 7.6./10, with the big point loss coming due to the initial presentation of Castle's man-child personality, with Matt Fowler noting that Castle's behaviour paints him as more of a callous and OTT jackass than an irrepressible rogue with a dark sense of humour who we'll all love with hesitation.
The review does seem cautiously hopeful that there's quality stuff to find in the series, with Fowler making note that it's the more sedate and introspective moments where Nathan really shines rather than the zany moments the trailers have showcased. That and there's chemistry between Nathan and Stana Katic's Kate Beckett, especially when bonding over theories of why people kill.
ETA: Edited the extended description to emphasize that it was the reviewer who was turned off by Castle's shenanigans and not me. Haven't seen the episode, but my VCR - yeah, I am that technically behind - is all kinds of primed for the fun.
