The show Castle is being cancelled.  Hopefully Nathan Fillion will take this opportunity to return to Firefly!

Mrs Trellis and I have watched every episode since the pilot, and will mourn its demise.

But I really think it should have closed after season 5. As they began to run out of sensible plots, the 'will they won't they' theme was the only thing keeping it going. Some of the last 2 seasons have been painful to watch.

One of the great strengths of Firefly, was its brevity. It never got stale.

I will miss it dearly, but you are right.  It could have gone off a couple seasons back and ended on a higher note. This seasons quasi supernatural stories especially have been pulling it thin.

I have enjoyed most of Castle.

However, they started with the 'will they, won't they'.
And then they did.
So they had to come up with a plot to split them up.
That's when the 'back story' wore thin for me.

Still sad to see it go though.

The ones I always hated (and I did love it, so that's not a bad thing) were the "OH GOD IS CASTLE THE BAD GUY?!". Every series. He isn't, we know this, move on. The fact it was in the pilot and then about 5 times more really grated on me.

The last one rather disappointing.

I watched the finale last night.  Still not sure how I feel about.  I am glad they filmed a closing just in case, but it felt a little forced.
