About the Alexis thing: Her studying in the same city (but with more space) might be more interesting, storytellingwise, than her leaving to another state (and therefore either spend unrealistically much time in NY or reducing her appearance)

Student characters always end up going to the local community college when they deserve Ivy League unless Real Life is writing the plot.

I can't remember offhand. Did Alex Keaton stay in town for college, or was that the finale? I remember the finale concerned him moving to New York, but I don't remember if that was for a job or for school.

There was some show with a title like A Whole New World that spun off the daughter from the Cosby Show in college, but then she quit after a season.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch bravely did a complete revamp to go to college, but stayed in town so her aunts could stay involved. I stopped liking it then, but I was in middle school and not very receptive to college stories.

[up] Alexis is going to Columbia, which IS Ivy League. As far as The Other Wiki is telling me.

@ TParadox: Yeah, gotta agree. The fourth season was probably the most head-bangingly annoying piece of TV I've seen in a while. I stopped around Episode 9. And this is from a man who basically believes Stana Katic is Venus made flesh.

I don't know, I just find the writing annoying. I watched the British Detective episode. Most Ace-like character out there, pointless, boring and stupidly placed in. Ryan never got much to do, in the entire season I watched. Even the Fanservice of the finale didn't make up for it.

Join Suits, Stana! Those guys know what THE BULLY they're doing!

The problem I had with most of the fourth season (and the second half of season 3) was that it lost the 'grounded in reality'-ness of the first three seasons. A lot of the plots just seemed too unrealistic, which is saying something for Castle. The show's always had strange cases (it is a tv show after all), but at some point my suspension of disbelief threshold was crossed.

I don't even remember what happened in the first half of season 4, besides Beckett's PTSD (a plot that, while handled well, I didn't care for), and the new captain being a kill-joy.

Also, I really hate Beckett's hair in season 4.

I can only hope for an Alexis spinoff in which she becomes a stripper and a private detective. Is that too much to ask?

Yes. Do you really think that Castle would ever let his daughter become a stripper? Really?

I was fine with the weird episodes. They like to go outside the formula from time to time, and that's okay. The formula is boring, but I think it's supposed to be a little boring, so you can focus on the ongoing storyline.

How weird is it though, that it wasn't until season 4 that they went outside the normal scope of the show... by moving to a different department of the same station?

Come see the roboteching.
Personally, I think most cases in season 4 is conveniently solved.

Perp: You cant prove that!

Beckett: We found this ... with your fingerprints.

Case closed.

Well, Season 5 will be awesome. Speaking of which, PROMO TIME!

New Season, any thoughts?

I'm glad the case of who killed Beckett's mother is over, but I don't want them keeping their relationship a secret more than one episode.

But the comedic potential! We only got a taste of it this week with the closet thing, it can really only get funnier.

Pardon the Quantum Leap reference, but Oh Boy.

Haven't seen the episode yet, but what is the chance of Gates watching behind the mirror?

For the first half of that episode I seriously thought Alexis was the killer, and was disappointed when she wasn't.

"Canceled ten years ago." "Only a dozen episodes." If I didn't know better, I'd think he had a specific show in mind. [lol]

And now we got that inevitable documentary style ep... I really hate those, especially in a show like this where one character is a bit over the top, it makes him look stupid instead of goofy in a cute way.
