It’s not exactly what you think, but Nathan Fillion — who is finally on a show that’s lasted until its second season — will be reprising his Captain Mal role from “Firefly,” in a matter of speaking. For the Halloween episode of “Castle,” Fillion’s Richard Castle will be dressed as, well, his former “Firefly” self.
And if you’re not watching “Castle,” you really should be. I knocked it after the pilot episode, but I re-reviewed it over the summer after watching the entire first season. It’s not exactly “The Wire,” or anything, but it may very well be the best procedural on television now. There’s not a lot of novelist turned murderers who exclaim, “Best. Murder. Ever!” The cases themselves are mediocre, but the banter is gold. And if Nathan Fillion is not your idea of eye candy, Stana Katic is, hands down, the hottest female cop in the history of television.
Anyway, here’s a grainy image (via Fireflyfans) of what you can expect on the October 26th episode (big H/T to bistro):
