Full disclosure: After reading the press release and every single spoiler I could find (I have no self control), I was worried about That 70s Show. Whenever Castle does an episode that has a theme to it, or appears to be some kind of stunt, I find that it is hit or miss, and not just with me, but with most of the fandom. Some will love it, some will hate it, and maybe some just won’t care, which might actually be the worst.
Fortunately, I feel like the biggest problem with this episode was how it was promoted because the promotions gave a much different impression than what this episode actually was. The spoilers, the interviews, all of it- those had me worried I’d be getting secondhand embarrassment or that it would be so ridiculous I wouldn’t want to watch it. The episode itself? Nothing to worry about. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised by Castle’s flashback to the 70s, even if I had a few minor issues throughout the episode. All in all, a good episode and one I’d watch again…and have, 3 times.
what i learned from this episode
- no matter what outfit she wears, no matter how hideous, kate beckett will never look anything less than sex on legs
- that about sums it up
