I'm not asking for that kind of price, but I mean even 15 bucks is decent. Castle is considered old already. Overall pleased. Good condition.
Any one can watch the series at any point to enjoy it without the feeling of missing something from earlier seasons. But, I recommend watching the first three seasons to develop an affinity with all the characters. Besides, the entire series thus far is better and more enjoyable than most shows on television.
If you are looking for fun and intrigue on the same show, then this is definitely it!!!!!
As an aside it took a really long time for this item to be restocked and I had to get Prime just to order it even though I purchased all the other seasons at the same time without a Prime account. It seems a little silly for only one season in the middle of a series to be a Prime exclusive.
actors. We are enjoying the season very much.

Mostly it's the cast. The chemistry between Caslte and Beckett (Caskett) is almost a visible force. Is it sad of me to hope it's like that for them in real life? The Bromance with Esposito and Ryan is fantastic - and could have their own series spin off.
Iron Gates is a surprisingly good addition - she had a hard act to follow - but does it her way.
It's not the kind of thing I'd normally watch. I'm more Lewis and Morse - and now Endeavour. When the actor playing Castle said - 'It's murder she wrote with a male writer instead' -
I made up my mind not to watch it. When I caught it at a friends house one evening - I could have kicked myself.
It took me a long time to find the first three series - and I waited an age for the fourth.
Most of all - it's fun - with some romance and lots of murder thrown in. And parenting - and parental judgement.
I feel the series started strongly and gets better each series. Like I said - I'm a Caskett case.
If you try it - I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Opening with Kate Beckett dying from a bullet to the chest, while Lanie Parish works frantically to keep her alive, emotions understandably are running high - Kevin Ryan and Javier Esposito are trying to run the investigation from their cell phones, Rick Castle is having a crisis of conscience having just declared his love for the woman on the table, and Beckett's boyfriend Josh Davidson finally blows up at him.
Kate survives, just, but is not the same person - hiding from the truth of the day, in particular Rick's declaration and lying to her psychologist for three months until she returns to the 12th Precinct and finds that the investigations into her mother's death and her own shooting have been stopped due to lack of evidence, a new captain who is being kept in the dark about the Johanna Beckett case because of the revelations regarding Roy Montgomery and Richard Castle being shown the door.
In this first episode we learn a number of lessons - Kate is no longer able to function without 'her' team, which means she needs to clear the air with Rick, but she lies to him about why three months have past before she gets in touch with him; faced with two armed suspects, she freezes when facing the first one, and only manages to (barely) control the situation when faced with the second one with Rick guiding her hand to a non-lethal outcome.
We also learn that she has told one massive lie about her shooting - she remembers everything from that day.
And that sets the tone for the majority of the series - with Beckett just remaining out of reach to Castle, while he tries to get closer and act on his feelings for her, until inevitably the truth comes out and he feels betrayed to the point where he pulls away (faster than the Serenity running from Reavers). His behaviour reverts to the 'old' Castle - bimbo on his arm and stealing evidence to look at with other people - and this shocks Beckett and Lanie, who both view it as a sign that perhaps Kate has waited too long to admit to her feelings.
Events come to a head in the next to last two episodes, during which Castle teams up with an appalling gang cop who nearly gets them all killed with his gung-ho attitude, and in the second one where Rick and Kate appear to be faced with the undead - the air is cleared as to why Kate acted the way she did, and admitting that if Rick is willing to wait a bit longer, she will be there for him - she doesn't know that he knows that she lied about not remembering.
And then we, the viewer, get to the last episode of Season 4. Yet more intrigue and revelations about Montgomery and Johanna Beckett come to light. A hitman has been sent to erase the evidence held by Roy's widow and once that has been completed, bury Kate Beckett, once and for all.
Investigation of the break-in at Roy Montgomery's home reveal that the player behind Johanna Beckett's murder thinks he is now in a position to quietly destroy the evidence, but the job is botched and the hitman has to clean-up the mess. The hitman is revealed to be Carl Maddox (an alias) who is also the person who shot Kate at Roy's funeral, and he wants to finish that job, too. Loyalties are again tested, leaving Rick no apparent choice but to walk away from the investigation and Kate Beckett, and leading Kevin Ryan to betray his confidence to Captain Victoria Gates.
This turns out to be the wisest course, as Kate faces off with Carl and winds up nearly losing her life, again, dangling over the edge of the building Maddox has been staying at.
This leads to Esposito and Beckett being placed on suspension, but Kate quits instead. She is finally tired of being defined by her mother's murder - she has lost friends and nearly her own life twice - and with Alexis's valedictorian speech acting as a narrative, Kate finally admits what/who she wants to be with in the same park where the two of them agreed to work together again - this time it's pouring with rain which reflects the mood. Soaking wet, Kate turns up at The Loft and kisses Rick.
The episode ends with Carl Maddox having located the man protecting Kate Beckett, and leads nicely into season 5.
In this series there's a new female boss, who insists on being called 'Sir', and if you know what happened at the very end of season 3, then the start of the first episode of the series is very compelling.
It's funny, dramatic and has lots of twists and turns. It's not exactly Stindberg, so you do need to come at it in the right frame of mind, i.e. just have a good time with it all.
there a so many good episodes in this series, Castle and Martha getting trapped in a bank during a robbery, Castle imagining himself and the others in a 1940's detective story, an Ex of Castle turning up to help with a assassination plot and a bombing. I am sure that I've missed off some other great episodes but having watched this again I am now going back to episode one, series one and watch all the four series again whilst watching series five on alibi,
