One thought on “#43: 3XK

  1. I wanted to comment on the “Close Encounters” episode but was unable to find a place to do so. I was so blown away by this episode! It exceeded every expectation that I had (and they were pretty high). It was the most perfect, witty homage to The X-Files (a show near and dear to my heart) that I could possibly imagine. BUT my favorite moment of the episode was the “that’s what she said” moment. Beckett’s line (Just put it in and get it over with”) coupled with the look on Castle’s face was absolutely priceless. It was SO much funnier than if he had actually said the punch line. That moment was, in my opinion, the epitome of clever writing married with clever performances- the very thing that sets “Castle” apart from all other current prime-time shows.
