I’ve liked Nathan Fillion for a while now – I mean what’s not to like? He’s tall, he’s funny, he’s Canadian and he’s got major geek cred.
But somehow, in spite of those things, it seems like anytime he gets cast on something, it gets cancelled.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer? Cancelled.
Miss Match? Cancelled.
So I’m both looking forward to, and slightly trepidacious about, his new show Castle. On one hand, I enjoy him and hope it does well and on the other hand, I’m concerned that as it is a mid-season replacement and sounds similar to Bones people might not watch it. And that would suck.
I am crossing my fingers such as they are that Monday night isn’t curtains* for this one. Because honestly? TV needs more Nathan Fillion. On a permanent basis.
** If you missed it, here‘s an interview with him on Kimmel**
