haha the one with alexis is so funny!!!!
I love how Beckett comes to her defense in that one
Me three. And just for the record: I'm happy I won't un-see that. Molly Quinn is FTW (especially since she's a comic-con regular who dresses up every year). The constant, recurring references to all the awesome sci fi shows of the past few decades is awesome. And I think I notice a not-too-subtle jab at the one fan base that ISN'T mentioned: Babylon 5. Better IMO than the Star Trek shows and BSG, but I have to admit that B5 took its shots at them back in the day. Turnabout (if that's what it is) is fair play. Incidentally, LOTS of alums from Babylon 5, ST:TNG/DS9, Firefly, and BSG make it onto Castle. Penny Johnson Jerald played Sisko's love interest on DS9, for example.
OMG sneak peek 2 is priceless! I had no idea Castle's voice could go that high! "How will I ever unsee that?" LOL!Also, Beckett is an awesome future step-mamma. :)
Oh Alexis you are in trouble (Well no it's Castle he will let it slide plus she's over 18 but still it's fun)And Kate reaction when she met the actress who played Zoe.... God It looks like she could cried from disappointment. It's hard to realise that the actors aren't usually as invested than yourself in their show. Or hated it. Kate reaction is both hearbreaking and somewhat hilarious. I want to give her a hug and tease her about it.
Oh the sound of "Alexis" in Castle's voice, lol ... i hate SiFi, but the 2nd SP is a sign ... we eventually dont dive to deep in the space. i am excited
OH MY GOD..ALEXIIIIS?
I had a similar reaction to her outfit but it was more like:Oh...My....God!
Did you see her in this year's cast photo? She's grown up, and absolutely stunning. And by all accounts she's another Nathan or Stana in terms of how nice and down-to-earth she is. In addition to being smoking hot now.
I think it's time to remember that Ed Quinn played Nathan Stark on Eureka. I so wish there's a scene where he stand next one of this Agent Stark banner.
Armin Shimmerman!Everybody's favourite Ferengi-playing yet another merchant! This episode is so meta,I'm loving it!
He was also pricepal syndar in buffy as well lol
i have i question. There was a video of BTS from castle something about the 05x05 (Probable cause) episode and i remember that i watched just a small bit of it and now i want to re-watch it and i cant find it anywhere. Please if somebody knows where to watch it could she/he please tell me?
at least i think it was from that episode because in an earlier post sb said that (if i remember correctly), an there was st about heavy lifting and stanas call to work early in the morning....ecc.if comes up with st please let me know :DThank you :D
I think stana tweeted it so check stana twitter you should find it there.
google Stana Katic heavy lifting and you'll find it
yeeee now i do remember - thank you guys :DDDDDDDDDDi sooo love this fandome - you ask and there will be sb who will always answer you :Dand btw im also not a huge fan of sci-fi but this looks awesome :Dthe alexis stuff and beckett siding with her :D
You're welcome :)
Well, I´m not a fan of sci-fi, so this episode won´t work that good for me... and because english isn´t my first language, I don´t understand words like geek, nerd, and so...I´ll watch it anyway, for the murder thing, and the fun, and maybe I´ll like it:)
What is your first langage ? I am sure someone out there can translate for you key words from SyFy world amd Fandom and convention to help you enjoy this episode.
Que não seja por isso, qualquer coisa é só perguntar que eu por exemplo estarei por aqui :)
Major sci-fi fangirling right now..... it's like all my favourite worlds have collided. And Beckett is one of us!! *squeals*
SO gonna love this episode - conventions are my life (tho I tend to do the smaller, more intimate ones rather than the huge, impersonal ones) and I can really relate to the whole being excited/disappointed aspect. Some people are awesome to meet (Nathan really is as funny and approachable as he seems to be), others just end up not living up to your expectations.
This show won't air for another 3 days and I love it already. Couldn't stop laughing at sneak peek 4. Beckett is so busted!!
This SPs proves that I already knew. Castle won't mock us. Usually when cop shows have a a Convention or SyFy episode, they are like "Who are this weirdo". Happy that a mainstream show will honored and surely a little affectionate teasing toward this culture instead of judge it. I had no worries since there are Fillion, Frakes, Quinn (Ed, Not Molly) involved in it and Marlowe himself is a closet geek, but it looks even greater than what I though.
Considering Nathan has done plenty of cons himself and loves'em, I think he'd give Marlowe a piece of his mind had he given cons the same weirdo-treatment other shows has done. Not to say weird shit doesn't happen at cons, tho, lol... so much awesome weirdness :P
With all the sci fi actors who get roles on Castle, I wasn't afraid of this for a minute. Is Gates going to appear at the Con? Either officially or because she's a closet fan.... she was on ST:DS9, and so I'd love to see a reunion.
wow alexis looks so much older than her age. I was used to her as a child type character but this is completely out of blue n a very disgusting look of hers. sorry i jst hate alexis
OH please really.
Seriously. We are in the 21st Century aren't we???
I gotta agree with anon 4.56, i dont hate alexis but that outfit is just awful. Call me traditional but dressing like that out in public is not appropriate. Besides, they could have made Alexis more geek like, this costume thing doesnt feel like something Alexis would wear. I dont know, seems out of character to me. Actaully I dont quite get the character dev of Alexis, its like all over the place. Just my thoughts. From hangovers, to this dressing up to mono...nothing like the Alexis we saw before.
She has gone to college and is experimenting like most of the youth do today imo
Her costume look like something out of videogames or manga. Go visit geeksaresexy.net and look at their photo gallery from conventions. Alexis outfit looks like a lot of them.However, I agree with you on Alexis character dev. They're the hangover and acting out before explaining what is wrong with her (When usually she would speak her worries and fears quite directly). The geek thing isn't in that alley for me since I get it is cosplay. But as you said there's the mono thing. Plus the way she uses her dad place just for free stuff without even trying to covering with fake attempt a discussion (or a quick hi at home). On the other end we still see her sweet, fun quite grown up when she gave her dad advice on his WE or when she was interrogated by Beckett. Mostly, I don't see where they going we this characters and yet I feel like they are trying to do something. I would rather have her with no dev. Like Lanie is than tentatives one with a new direction each episode.
Molly Quinn is an adult now, not a child actress. In real life, she does Comic-con every year and dresses up for that (less sexy, more fangirl). Go to a con and within 30 seconds you'll see outfits far skimpier than that. Hell, go to a Halloween party and you'll see skimpier costumes. I'm surprised that people aren't seeing what's happening with her character. Lanie and Gates and Alexis and Martha aren't being well used this season, I agree, but the character's arc doesn't seem odd to me. Leaving for college for the first time, she's getting wrapped up in life there. New friends, new priorities, suddenly being an adult. We saw the same thing happen with her BF last season, and she didn't understand it. Now she's living it. She's torn between wanting to still be daddy's little girl and suddenly realizing she's an independent, adult woman now. People who go to elite colleges add something else. Alexis has been spending her whole life behaving herself and trying to be perfect so she could get in the right college. Well, she's In now. So now what? Many kids in elite colleges go wild at that age because they're a little directionless. Castle's been tormented because he wants his daughter to be wild and have fun adventures-- the childhood he never had and is trying to live out as an adult. But he also wants his little girl to STAY his little girl, which she can't. Beckett knows how this goes, she went through her wild-child phase already. Hell, she did sexy cosplay herself as a freshman at Stanford (pic confiscated in one of the sneak peeks). It's normal, appropriate, and understandable. (BTW We've already seen her in cheerleader uniforms, schoolgirl dresses (even though her school doesn't have uniforms), and showing some "zettai ryouiki" in PR stills, and that was when she was underage. What's changed is that Molly Quinn has grown up. Seriously, chill out.)
Well said. I agree with you 100%
well i'm used to alexis as a child , I know that she is 18 but still she is so young they shouldn't let her wear that top
Hum. You are obviously not very familliar ob cosplay. It isn't about sexy or.little clothes it's about impersonnating a character. If Alexis character wore this, so she's good. If she stay in character of course. That Castle is over reacting because he's her father that's understable. No one want a reminder that your kid is a sexual being, no matter how old they are. However, other people shouldn't judge, especially when it's so evident they are ignorant about cons worlds
I think they could have her "impersonate" some fictional character with a bit more modesty. Even with twice as much clothing that was snug-fitting could bring the same OMG reaction from her dad. I also thought it was a bit much---I mean it was barely covering her at all. Just my opinion of course....
Anon 6.18, even if its about impersonating a character, Alexis should still remain Alexis. Its like she is completey different. The Alexis from seasons 1-4 would not dress like that. Someone else mentioned this below, and its true, i really dont get the direction of her character. The development is just not believable. I guess i just dont buy it.I agree with those that say it was barely covering much. I mean come on, she was practically walking around in her bra and panties. Does that seem like something Alexis would do? No is doesnt, so i dont get it.
Peek #1 is my favorite. The expressions on Beckett's face are absolutely priceless.
Far out. Look outside. There are plenty of 14 year olds wearing less!
That is sad imo---and when popular TV shows and stars convey the message that practically wearing nothing is okay, it conveys the message to our youth that it is not only acceptable but expected.
In some ways youre right, plenty young girls wearing less, doesnt make it right though. And I agree with anon 10.16, this conveys a message that it could be cool to dress in basically your underwear and prance around. Alexis's character was one i really liked becasue she seemed more grounded, not the typical rebelious teenager. She was simple and sweet and just all round a good example. She isnt anymore, thats what i dont like about her now. Its like she has done a complete 180 change, not realistic. It would make sence if some trauma happened in her life and she was just being deffierent than her usual personality, but nothing happened, she comes from a perfectly happy and wholesome home, so it just doesnt make sense. That outfit is just awful.
LOL...This is so funny. Love Becketts expressions here. Her secret is out and Castles going to tease her...i hope he calls her Kbex throughout the ep. That will be cute.That scene with Alexis is funny too, i love castles reaction, typical father, but i have to admit whatever that outfit she is wearing doesnt look very sci fi to me. Anyway cant wait.
I hope the K Bex (cause you know its with an x) comes out throughout. This looks hilarious.
It's also a reference to "Tick Tick Tick..." in second season, when Castle suggested that Nikki Heat be played by Kate Beckensale. He thought it was perfect because then they could both be called "k-becks". She hated the idea, probably mostly because that WAS her old nickname. And not just in college. Her old High School BFF called her "Becks" in "Food To Die For".
what does that guy's t-shirt say? something about Han...
Shirt says "Hans shot first." Seems it is a super-fan Star Wars book vs movie inner joke. Here for more info...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_shot_first
Oh i love KBEX...that outfit she has on is sexy, expecially for geeks! Haha, castle should like it. But what i heavens name is Alexis wearing or not wearing!
Next time she saves his life she should whisper in his ear, 'Never, ever, call me Kbex!' lol
Castle already called her KBex way back in season 2, episode17 (the first of the two- parter) when he said that Kate Beckinsale should play Beckett in the Nikki Heat movie.
Yes I know but now he knows that other people have been calling her that all along. It's like Meredith calling him Kitten. You just know he's going to drive her crazy with it.
Alexis's outfit is totally typical for what women wear in tons of syfy shows - hello Star wars Princess Leah and Jabba the hut?
LOLOL - KBex such a fab college nickname. I remember Madison calling her Bex, because she was at college with her. Kate looked very uncomfortable at Rick seeing that pic of her in sci fi gear. Rick is gonna tease her so much about that pic. Looks like a fun episode.
I kinda feel sorry for Beckett in the first sp. It's like she's meeting someone from tv that she was a big fan of and she's putting down the show that she was on. It's like her little fangirl heart got broken. :(
Right! It would be like one of us meeting Stana and hear her insult the ridiculous work she did on " Castle" ...can you imagine ?! That would be dreadful!
Yes! That's exactly what I was thinking about when I wrote that. Although, from what we know about Stana without ever having met her, I don't believe that she would ever say anything bad about it. In fact, I don't think I've ever heard her say anything bad about anyone.You do hear those stories though about people who have met their 'idols' and have come away disappointed because they weren't who they thought they were. That is what seems to be going on in that clip. I think even Kate's gun is the same type, which may be why she chose it and why she looks at the gun on the poster, because in a way she was modeling herself after someone she had really admired.
Who wants to bet that the photo Beckett took comes into play later on in the investigation? Just like Gates and her creepy doll...
Who wants to bet that Ryan or Esposito find that photo in evidence before Kate can destroy it and stick it on the murder board?
Maybe its just me but I think that part of the reason Castle was so upset about Alexis was that he was checking her out before he realised it was her and that his little girl is not his sweet innocent little girl anymore. The 2nd Sneak peak is a classic!!!!! Typical Father Response to any father seeing his daughter like that.
Elicia, i think its just you:)...he definitely was not checking her out. Remember even in headcase back in season 4 ep 3, he didnt check any of those girls out, they were all young and he commented on them not dressing up properly. When he looked at her he most likely thought what on earth is this girl wearing and coming out like that, where are her clothes! Thats what he commented about the girls in headcase as well when he looked aorund the room. He saw her pass and it took a second to realize under all that heavy make up and less clohting was his daughter and thats when he freaked. I loved his reaction, i would flip if my kid went out in public like that. Practically naked.
Ok so i know i may get some hate but i have to say Alexis just looks downright ridiculous. Whatever character that she is supposed to be dressed up as just isnt working on her. Seems like Alexis has become a different person, dressing like that, getting mono.Its not just her dad, im cringing too watching her, like please girl go cover up and be decent. Its all just weird. I like her character, so im hoping they dont make her some weird teenage girl who suddenly is acting all crazy.
Not hate, but I think you need some perspective. She's wearing far more than she would wear in public at the pool or on the beach. Cons are full of people dressing in less. And frankly, I kind of like that, while she's absolutely gorgeous, she's not vamping or playing up the sexy. She's wearing a sexy costume, but she's not playing up the sexy, she's casually walking around the con with friends. Like I said, those kinds of costumes are a dime a dozen at conventions. What's getting you is that you're used to the 14 year old girl from Season One, not the 19 year old adult woman of today. And you're supposed to be a little stunned, just like Castle is.
That was so FRICKIN HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!Literally cannot wait 'til Monday!!Oh, and I am VERY interested in seeing the end scene 'cause, if it is what I think is going to be..? I have only three words for it. W.O.W.!
"Its frakin something" lol...that is the funniest scene ever. Very cute. Kate Beckett fangirl extrodinaire...hehe...Loved her face when he called her kbex. And Henry Burnett looks really geeky, imagine Kate hanging out with him back in the day! LOL...Though on a more sad sentiment, just goes to show what she was like before her mothers death, how fun and carefree she was...and then after that she became an adult quickly and serious. Its sad.Also kudos to those of you who picked out much earlier when they released the promo pics that that was Kate in the picture. Ok what is Alexis wearing? Its looks off. Can I unsee that too.
Oh this ep is going to be fun. Im not even a sci fi nerd but this just looks like its going to be more comedic than anything. Stana has the best expressions. Beckett is going to hide that picture somewhere and Castle is going to keep bugging her about it.
All of you people who judge Alexis... Educated yourself. cosplay is fun AND good because you can be whatever and whoever you want in a safe envirronment.It:-'s about Not being yourself. Visit a fantasy that you would never sream to do IRL. To be A Stromtrooper, a pokemon, Kate Beckett, travelling through the stargate or be the captain of the Enterprise.For a day or two, you get to live that fantasy and is great, so great. Mostly because nobody judge you. In a small cons, rare are people who would check you out on a sexual way. I saw a princess Leia ultra sexy and really that could play in a PrOn that nobody liked. Why ? The girl, in total disrespect of the spirit of cosplay cons and Star Wars though that just being sexy and wearing short thing would be good enough. However she got the costume wrong and didn't live up to the character. I even wondered if she watched Star Wars.I do cons I did cosplay when I was younger and I had time to do it. Trust me, I would never dream to wearing thing like that IRL and yeah I would find it inapropriate IRL.Also, it isn't for nothing that most cons have lockers for cosplayer. People knows that costume like that aren't appropriate outside the con.
So you're telling me that all those nerd boys (in the show and in real life) that have only ever fantasized about girls like Alexis won't look at her as a sexual object just because she's dressed as a character? I don't buy it.
Yeah they did but not more than any guy with any girl who is remontly pretty. They're nerds, some.of them.would.drool even if she was wearing a Scully outfit. The point is, at cons, this kind ofcostumes are the.norm and aren't inappropriate at all. If she'd wear a Lara Croft costume, which doesn't cover much more, or Leïa or Wonder Woman nobody would have an issue with it because everyone would recognize the character and see that Alexis is doing.That don't sit well with me is that a 6y old as wonder woman for Halloween who will knock at stranger's doors isn't an issue. But a 18y old who impersonanting.a character the show as much skin as wonder woman at a con and you're all riled up. Works with catwoman too. Don't show much skins but way more sexy than that alexis is wearing.And about guys at cons go to geeks are sexy. There a woman cosplayer who talked about that. She is a cosplayer and clearly said that she only have issues with men and boys who already are cave-man no matter that she's wearing. She said she gave a lot of interview and only one time she had to stop it because the guy was talking to her breast. And it was a time she was wearing one of her less sexy outfit. The issue is from the guy, not the outfit.
I agree with all people that say that Alexis outfit is just not right ....
The problem where Alexis is concerned is that costume seemed just totally out of character for her. To some fans it made her look trashy! There is always going to be divided opinion about this. There was divided opinion between Rick and Kate about it, and although I am a devoted Beckett fan, I am with Rick on this one, how does a dad un-see the vision of his precious daughter dressed like that? Rick thought it was inappropriate, that's what matters!
I can't wait to see this episode! It looks so amazing!
Ah, all these peeks are so funny! It should be a great episode.. I can't wait either!When watching the very beginning of SP#4, I found the guy in the crowd behind Castle looked like Nathan in Firefly: same haircut, same cowboy coat... Just a bit chubbier maybe!
