Castle  
Ok, that show Castle is pretty amusing. If you haven't seen it, Nathan Fillion stars as Rick Castle, a bestselling mystery novelist who uses his fame to finagles his way into shadowing a homicide detective onher cases so that he can base a character on her. Their relationship, sort of half-Moonlighting, half-X-Files, provides a lot of the show's humor and good old fashioned "Will they or won't they?" romantic tension. I wasn't exactly looking for yet another detective show, but I like the way they handle the genre. While the cases are enjoyably macabre, much moreso than CSI, the police work is a lot more realistic, with the cops constantly deflating Castle's pop culture ideas about how the job is done. Of course, that policing is hard work motif is balanced by all of the random convenient knowledge that Castle always happens to have from researching a book or some unlikely contact he's made as a well-known author, which should make me roll my eyes, but actually works here because of how much it annoys the real detectives.

How sad is it that I look at that picture and one of my first thoughts is:

"Man, I wish I could read the titles!"

Perfectly reasonable. My girlfriend, on the otherhand, really wished they were books instead.

Yeah, I would be pretty in love with this girl and her American Apparel socks, if only she were browsing through a bunch of books or even CDs.

Still, I would definitely play some old school Nintendo games with her anytime.

That actually would have been even cooler.

Yeah, I thought they were books. When I realized they weren't I was like "This gal could be my daughter..."

eeek.

Aw, man, I swear I was only looking at her socks, sir!

She's cuuuuuute. I want a room full of movies and video games and naked girls. Life's not fair!

You're still young. Give it time. You'll have your room full of movies and video games and naked girls before you know it.

Replace the video games with books and I agree.

Also, I enjoy Castle quite a bit, though I think of it as a guilty pleasure. I'd say it was more "Murder She Wrote meets Moonlighting".
