    Not so much a genre thing, but the ending felt very rushed. Or, after thinking about it, I thought there could have been more of a punch/oomph with that ending.

    Having watched two episodes of CASTLE, it seems very predictable and contrived. While the actor who plays the lead (whose name eludes me, and I'm to lazy to GOOGLE) was great in FIREFLY IMO.

    Best, MEH

    PS--Thanks to the group for the heads up (I forget who tipped me off on that) on the British series being out soon. I searched Amazon about 1 month ago, and came up with very little. But now they are happy to take your pre-orders.
