Jazzville Skyline: “…tale of two series…”

Rocky-Oby rocky-o

“Castle” and “NCIS”…two of the biggest shows on American tv…Both are starting their new seasons on their respective networks, but both have also just released their dvd collections from their previous season, and, like some of us who have given up the ‘cable ghost’, keeping up with these guys is always a dvd set away…

Now, in all honesty, there have been ALOT of series with new season releases, including “Leverage”, “New Tricks”, “Midsommer Murders”, “Waking The Dead”, “Inspector Lewis”, etc., but i chose “NCIS” and “Castle” simply because they had reason to be…(and i’ll try to keep the spoilers down to a minimum…)

“NCIS” has been on for 10 seasons, is the number one rated show on tv, and also in the headlines, with the announcement of the departure of the character Ziva David…and even though this news didn’t affect the dvd set in question, something sure did…

After a cliffhanging explosion, which could have placed a lot of storylines on interesting paths, it just seemed like many of the actors were almost bored with the plots and their participation in them…

“Castle” on the other hand, took advantage of their 5th-inning stretch with a renewed vigor in, not only the plotlines and the individual characters all around, but in the relationship between Castle and Beckett…

Some may say that one or two episodes may have gone a bit left-field, and they wouldn’t be too wrong, but even within those episodes, there were moments that showed they weren’t taking this series lying down…(and getting to see many of the actors from the classic Don Johnson series “Nash Bridges” didn’t hurt either…not sure why, but very cool nonetheless…)

And that’s really the difference between the two series sets…one kicked up its cool, while the other simply cooled off…
