It's a case of life imitating art when popular pulp novelist Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) helps the NYPD hunt a killer copycatting his stories, then finds a second calling as a crime-solving member of detective Kate Beckett's (Stana Katic) homicide team. In this crackling police drama, the swinging single dad gets under steely Beckett's skin, but Castle's high-society contacts and grasp of criminal behavior make him handy on the murder trail.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this crime drama about a novelist (who also happens to be a devoted single dad) who tags along with a detective as she investigates crimes is much less violent -- and more lighthearted -- than intense procedural series like CSI. Many of the cases do involve murder, so some crime scenes feature shots of corpses, but there's little gore. Some episodes also include discussions about the sexual habits of both victims and suspects, and there's romantic tension between the main characters. Expect some social drinking.

Sexual Content

Castle is a charming rake who constantly flirts with his female partner and the women they meet during their investigations. They also sometimes speculate on the sexual habits of their victims and suspects when it's relevant to the crimes they're investigating.

Violence

Little on-screen violence, but most of the crimes on the show involve violence -- including murder -- and the crime scenes sometimes feature brief shots of corpses.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

The characters investigate plenty of heinous crimes, but the show has a lighthearted tone overall. Castle's unusual background gives him a unique perspective that often helps them figure out who did it. He's also a doting single father to a teenage girl, and he's a bit out of his comfort zone now that she's starting to date.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters sometimes discuss drugs and alcohol as possible factors in the crimes they're investigating. Some social drinking.
