    in Television

    If you asked many a #Castle fan what they wished [the most] for Season 8 during this holiday season, your safe bet would be for them to see Caskett back together again as a couple [united their own unique way] and working together again as a team.  Last night’s episode, “The Last Seduction” made quite a huge leap in that fan-wish direction – especially in the last scene – which the episode can be viewed over on www.abc.go.com/castle  in it’s entirety.  “The Last Seduction” was written by Robert Hanning and directed by John Terlesky.

    Satan gave me a band called The Holographic Fu*ktoys

    in Rock Music

    Tonight, tune in for a one of a kind story about a young man given a devilish agenda, band name, 2 albums, full songs, and how he overcame the temptations of the flesh. Anime was HEAVILY involved, most of it is BLATANTLY Illuminati/Masonic! They they throw up the devil horns, the 666 signs and triangle over the eyes for a reason, and it is VEILED by being so KAWAII!!!!!! They know you don't know what it means. Do you know about Nyanners AKA Taylor Terpstra? Anime is not so subtle with its pedophilic/lolicon programming, and it is no different from the homosexual programming in the media NOW making it the "new normal." Ever notice how girl-on-girl heavy most anime is? Taylor is leading her subscribers to hell, she even admits she's a "neo-pagan 2000 year old WITCH who smells!" I LOVE Rock & Roll! Not that perversion of it with all those satanic rock stars, the REAL Rock and Roll; Psalm 18:2 "The Lord is my rock and my fortress, and my deliverer, My God, and my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, [and] my high tower." Yah is our true ROCK and we all have a ROLE to play here on Earth, and all who ROLL with Yahushuah get eternal life. Tune in this Friday the 13th for a show you'll never forget.

    Season 7: Episode Discussion - Driven-Last Action Hero

    in Television

    “Kill Switch” -- When subway passengers, including Detective Esposito, are taken hostage by a mysterious gunman, Castle, Beckett and the team must uncover the gunman's agenda before it's too late, MONDAY, NOVEMBER 24 (10:01- 11:00 p.m., ET).

    “Last Action Hero”
    Getting back to the lighter side of the show, Amann described episode nine as “the death of an Expendable. It’s the death of an aging action star.” And because Castle loves aging action stars, “it happens to also be a guy who’s a childhood hero of Castle’s, so he’s very invested in the case,” Amann said. “He was part of a movie that was being made that’s sort of an Expendables-type movie so we go to the set and we meet all these other guys who are these broken down old action heroes. So there’s a lot of fun to be had in the episode. We think that’s also going to be really delightful.”
