Also included is a wonderful feature that I enjoyed a lot: a round table discussion with some of the biggest mystery writers, and their involvement with Castle. They go into thought-provoking detail of what they do in their own mystery writing. This feature will be especially loved by amateur and professional writers as you get insight into what they do to get their thoughts and emotions on the page. This feature is more than just a sit-down-and-watch feature, it is also very informative. You don’t want to miss it.
Deleted scenes almost always garner a repeat opinion from me. They are deleted for a reason, and quite a few of them had no real impact on the storyline and won’t be missed. However, in this case a few of the scenes, though still not important to the story, are quite hilarious and would have been great additions to the episodes in which they belong.
"Castle Goes Hollywood" gives us an inside glimpse at the making of one episode where Castle and Beckett head on out to California in an effort to solve a murder. It’s a good feature that gives us an inside look at the work that went into this particular episode to give us a different look at both Beckett and Castle.
"Murder Board 101" follows the hard work, time and effort put into those whiteboards with all the info about the murder victims and possible suspects we see in every episode. What to us seems to be a simple whiteboard is really a lot of time and work that requires attention to continuity. You really learn to respect all the effort put into these simple whiteboards as you now see they are so much more than just a board in the background every episode.
There are cast and crew commentaries on a few select episodes and a music video that really doesn’t have anything real to add to the extras. I’d say these are probably the two bonus features that I enjoyed the list of them all, but I do see many Castle fans enjoying the commentary.
This is another wonderful, great season of Castle full of murder and fun. With tons of bonus features, this set is well worth what you’re going to pay for it and you won’t regret this one bit. Castle The Complete Third Season will be available on DVD September 20th.
