Castle is an American crime-comedy show that aired on ABC from 2009 to 2016. The show follows the story of a bestselling mystery writer, Richard Castle, who is played by Nathan Fillion. His life takes an exciting turn when he finds himself assisting NYPD's homicide detective Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic, in solving murders that are eerily similar to the ones described in his novels. Although Castle initially aids the investigation in the hopes of gathering inspiration for his new book, he discovers a hidden passion for detective work and becomes Beckett's consultant on several cases.

The show's opening sequence sets the tone for the quirky crime drama with a catchy theme song and a montage of Castle's crime novels. The show is praised for its sharp dialogue, fast-paced plot, and witty humor. Castle's outlandish theories and his chemistry with Beckett created a unique dynamic, which kept the audience hooked.

The supporting cast of the show is equally impressive. Molly Quinn plays Castle's teenage daughter, Alexis, who is witty, intelligent, and mature beyond her years. Jon Huertas and Seamus Dever play detectives Javier Esposito and Kevin Ryan, respectively, and provide much of the show's comic relief. Susan Sullivan, who plays Castle's mother, Martha Rodgers, adds a touch of glamour to the show with her larger-than-life personality.

Castle's cases range from serial killers to art heists, and the show often includes pop culture references in its storytelling, which adds an extra layer of humor. The cases are often solved with a combination of forensic evidence and Castle's intuition, which gives the show a unique blend of procedural crime and light comedy.

The show's seven seasons explore the personal lives of its characters, with Castle and Beckett's will-they-won't-they relationship taking center stage. The chemistry between the two actors is palpable, and their romance is teased out over several seasons, adding to the show's dramatic tension.

Castle's popularity led to several notable guest stars, including Alyssa Milano, Jane Seymour, and James Brolin, who played Castle's father. However, it's the chemistry between the core cast that makes the show memorable.

Overall, Castle is a must-watch for fans of crime shows that don't take themselves too seriously. Its excellent dialogue and cast create a unique and entertaining experience, making it a perfect binge-worthy show.

Castle is a series that is currently running and has 8 seasons (174 episodes). The series first aired on March 9, 2009.
