Since TNT began showing Castle reruns, I've been able to gradually catch up on the series from its beginning. Not having seen every recent episode, I can tell you, from what I've watched, I'm still undecided as to whether or not the chemistry of this odd couple works effectively. Another example of UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension) running its route before finally culminating in a relationship, it's debatable how the current romance suffices.
In the older episodes of this popular series, Castle (Nathan Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic) went through all the typical flirty pursuit, working relationship, grudging respect on her part, real admiration on his part, attraction, rejecting that attraction, subtle jealousy, and the gamut of romantic endeavors before finally realizing they've come to depend on each other and desire each other's exclusive attention, favor, and romantic relationship.
All the typical activities and conduct which comprise UST worked very well between these two onscreen, but now I'm not sure the chemistry between the two feels authentic. The actors seem like actors trying to morph their distinct characters into something meaningful beyond their former actions, but I wonder is it just me or is it not quite there for other fans of this entertaining little police drama?
Any Castle viewers out there care to comment or share an opinion?
