Castle "Habeas Corpse" Episode Review

*Review contains spoilers, so read at your own risk!*

Compared to the last couple of episodes, I felt like this episode was just kind of eh. Maybe I'm the only one who feels that way, but the case wasn't really grabbing my attention. I'm just mainly trying to get caught up to watch the next episode, which I'm hoping is all that I think and more. But to get to that, I had to watch this and I was a bit disappointed with it.

Don't get me wrong, it was fun and had all those awesome Castle moments that I love in it, I just wasn't thrilled with the case itself. Richie, who was a lawyer, ended up getting murdered because another lawyer, wanted to not bring attention to the fact that some part in a car was making people get hurt. All to get the money and clients. 

The main part I enjoyed watching, of course, like everybody else it seems like, was the singing competition. Oh how much I would have loved to have seen the full routine with Espo and Ryan and them winning at the end, would have been awesome! But the little glimpse is sadly, all we got. Still, it was enough. 

When Castle learned that he and Kate were going to be apart of the competition, he was over the moon! But Kate, however, wasn't. Blaming it on the fact that if she was to ever run for Captain that she doesn't want that kind of thing to stand in her way and make her become less like a leader by doing something silly. Yes, I can see where she's coming from, but being fun now and again doesn't hurt anybody. There was something deeper to it then that, though. Kate has stage fright! Well, not full on stage fright. She called it sing fright. You knew that Martha was bound to tell Castle about the news as to not embarrass anyone, so Castle ended up pulling out of the competition. Can you say sweet?! But I have a feeling that if they were to have entered, they probably would have won. 

Again, it's very unusual for me to not like a Castle episode. I wonder if it was because I really want to watch the next episode after this and I was just watching it just to watch it and get it done with. Who knows, but it wasn't bad, just a filler episode, which I don't normally mind, but with this one, I just didn't totally like.
