Castle - Season 1
The first season received positive to mixed reviews from critics. The first season got a rating of 56% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 16 reviews. The season got a 54/100 rating on Metacritic. Keith Phipps from The A.V. Club gave the premiere a B, giving the series praise for managing to go outside the "cliché" characters, giving both Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic praise for their portrayal and saying that Katic "suggests unspoken vulnerability and need." Jonah Krakow from IGN also commented on the cliche storytelling as he said "Castle proves that even a show with an unoriginal idea can be interesting and enjoyable if done well." He also praised Fillion for his portrayal of Richard Castle: "Fillion's ability to convey humor, awe and sarcasm in even the most gruesome situations makes him the perfect choice for the role. Not every actor can do what he does and the writers do a good job of playing to his strengths."
We spent an entire season watching Joe violate Beck, so we didn't need to see the brutal way he killed her. I don't know what it says about our current state of reality where it caught me off guard that we didn't see the act itself or the direct aftermath of it.
There were a couple of quotes that came to mind during that scene. They summed up Joe this season, especially this episode. Both are from a poet by the name of Rudy Francisco; one from a poem aptly titled "Monster."
Beck displayed that backbone that had been lacking most of the season. Beck working her magic was a fun scene. She is clever when she wants to be. She knew how to persuade him into releasing her after listening to Joe's past experience with Mooney and his attempts at convincing her he did everything for her.
Candace was confident, smug, and she looked and sounded like she was prepared to make Joe's life a living hell. That is a promising and exciting prospect. I don't know much about the book series, but it seems like the show is prepared to divert from the books for its sophomore season.
Until a final sequence of the season that suggests Fringe-like future possibilities, the reels of film are little more than a handy MacGuffin designed to explore this world, the various people living in it, the things they do to survive, the compromises they're forced to make and the stands they won't back down from. As such it serves as the perfect prism through which we can view the ever-changing world we ourselves live in, and the threats that seem so far removed yet are closer than we think.
Tega, in a bid to avoid blowing the case over since C and C had been implicated in the recording, threatens the judge to resign as he has incriminating evidence against him, enough to cause him arrest. Here, Tega lands a punch on the Judge. Tega agrees to drop the case of license revocation after talks with Remi. He is met in court by the Judge, who promises to make his life miserable. The season ends here.
Even with these new financial findings, CEO Jeff Bezos and his company aren't shying away from spending money to develop prestige television shows. Their two season investment in the upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel series could approach half a billion dollars, which is three times the amount it cost to develop the first two seasons of Man in the High Castle combined.
Man in the High Castle is getting a third season from Amazon, which will premiere in 2018, but it remains to be seen how long this financial model can prove successful for Amazon as a whole. Ultimately it seems like Amazon's goal is just to get people back to the site regardless of what they're streaming, because as Bezos said in 2016, "When we win a Golden Globe, it helps us sell more shoes."

PAXTON, MASS: Sophomore attack Ryan Castle (Boxford, Mass.) set the Emmanuel College single-game scoring record with seven goals to lead the Saints past Anna Maria College, 16-9, Saturday afternoon in the AMCATS regular season finale at Carposo Field in Paxton.
- The AMCATS struck first when senior midfielder Zion Mercado (Limerick, ME), playing in the final home game of his career, scored just 17 seconds into the game on an unassisted goal to put Anna Maria up 1-0. It was the first goal of the season for Mercado and his 19th in 43 career games.
- Down 2-1, Anna Maria turned to senior attacker Cameron Perry (Coventry, RI), the team's leading scorer, for the equalizer, as he found the back of the net with 4:51 to go in the first quarter. It was Perry's 20th goal of the season and the 55th of his storied collegiate career.
- Later trailing 7-2 midway through the second quarter, Anna Maria freshman attacker Ethan Quinn (Dudley, MA) continued to produce in his stellar rookie campaign, taking a pass from junior attacker Nick Massaro (West Haven, CT) and scoring his tenth goal of the season with 7:44 to go in the half.
