Claudia on Castle!

Sorry for the late warning folks, but Claudia appeared on this weeks’ episode of ABC’s hit detective series, “Castle,” with Nathan Fillon (Castle) and Stana Katic (Beckett).  Here are a couple of screen captures and the official synopsis of the episode.


Ep621 Law & Boarder
A mystery figure on a motorcycle chases down a young skateboarder in the dark streets. BANG! BANG! The motorcyclist shoots the skateboarder. The victim is 21-year-old Logan Moore. He was a pro skateboarder who was in town for the New York Streets Sports Festival. Castle and Beckett discover that another pro, Manny Castro, had a beef with Logan. He was caught on tape threatening the victim after he caught him ransacking the festival office. Logan was looking for something that he swore was a matter of life and death. It looks as though he was right. Screen capture from Castle
Tommy Fulton, the festival CEO, says the only thing missing from his office after a break-in is his gun. He also says that Logan had received a call from someone in his past that upset him. The victim also received calls from a club run by the Albanian mob. Logan had been staying at the loft of a trust fund kid named Ross De Koning. The two of them used to skate together. Ross says Logan’s mom dated an Albanian named Enver Kotta. The kid helped send this bad man to prison. Enver swore he’d get even one day.
Castle5Enver admits he met with Logan only to make amends. He gave him $3,000 so Logan could take care of something before it was too late. Logan was seen carrying a heavy black duffle bag before he was killed. He put it in his gym locker. The bag contains rock climbing gear, a gun and tools for picking locks. Logan also bought an old high-8 camcorder. Video footage shows a motocross rider named Carter Wexland as the one who entered Logan’s gym. The guy has a record and a motorcycle just like the one used by the killer.Carter says Logan hired him to help break into an office. This was all about making things right for a friend who had died. The building Logan broke into belongs to a lawyer named Brett Zaretsky, who says a thief never broke in to his place even though all indications seem to indicate that’s not the case. The attorney is covering up something.

Castle4Castle and Beckett meet with Logan’s incarcerated mother. She says a scrawny boy from the neighborhood named Jay Dixon was killed in an accident six years ago. Logan may have been seeking justice for this young kid’s murder. He bought the camcorder to view footage that was shot the day Jay was killed. The team finds a piece of the tape. It shows Tommy Fulton threatening to kill Logan if he ever told anyone what happened to Jay. Brett Zaretsky represents the guy. Tommy Fulton fires him. He wants to tell Becket and Castle exactly what happened.

Tommy reveals that he was making skateboarding videos with Logan, Jay and his friend, DK, six years ago. Things got out of hand during the shoot. DK snapped and killed Jay. He made a deal to give Tommy $5 million to keep quiet. It was in a trust fund he’d be able to access on his 21st birthday. The DK in question is Ross De Koning. Case closed.

Castle3Castle stayed up all night trying to beat Beckett at a game of Scrabble. He hates to lose. He challenges Beckett to another game where she spells out the word “quixotic” for the win. In other news, Lanie is going to be Beckett’s Maid of Honor. Both Esposito and Ryan believe they would best man to be, well, Castle’s best man. They start sucking up to the groom-to-be before deciding to be co-best men. Too bad Castle already asked Alexis to stand by his side. As for the Scrabble rematch, that’s not happening. Castle and Beckett opt to play strip poker instead. Everybody wins!

Babylon 5: Season 3, Passing Through Gethsemane

Once again the delightful Brother Theo is here, playing chess with Mr. Garibaldi… but the scene that made me laugh out loud was the arrival of Ambassador Kosh’s ship.

You see, I was kicked off the set for the first and only time in four years that day.

What happened was this:
When you do a scene where you cannot see the actual ship (because it will be inserted later with CGI) and no one has shown you a drawing of it or anything, you kind of have to use your imagination… and you have to stare at a guy holding a little flag or piece of paper up where they want you to look; it’s called your “eye-line”… So I was staring at the little piece of paper held by a rather frumpy looking grip and doing my close up and all was fine.

Then came Pat Tallman’s entrance as Lyta Alexander. Pat had to appear as if she were sort of on a people mover like they have in airports; kind of rolling or floating towards me so they came up with a contraption that to me was the single most ridiculous thing I had ever laid eyes on.

Pat was kneeling, yes kneeling in a wagon… Yes a little kid’s type of wagon with a rope on it which was being pulled by the same frumpy grip only now said grip was eating a bagel with one hand and pulling Pat (who was desperately trying to look heroic and stoic) at the same time.

I’m sorry folks; I lost it. I could not stop laughing, take after take after take of wasted film with me laughing until I was crying until finally… Yes, I admit it: I was kicked off of the set and told to “go to my room”…

I am still to this day mortified and embarrassed and yet, I still crack up when I think of how utterly silly she looked kneeling in that wagon and being pulled by a bagel chomping dude who was probably thinking about the football game that night.

This episode was also where I happily heard the famous “Electric bleachers” line from Jerry! Yay! Now I know the context, thank you DVD boxed set!

The creepy story of the black rose killer was very well done with Brother Edward (so well played by Brad Dourif) turning out to have been a murderer and his mind wipe being undone by a renegade Centauri telepath and it coming full circle with the man who then kills him being mind wiped and taking the monk’s cloth! Where does JMS come up with this stuff? In the shower?

Babylon 5: Passing Through Gethsemane

Londo and Lyta have a great scene with her threatening him with a nightmare and Delenn beautifully describes the Minbari belief that “we are the universe”… a very Buddhist approach to things and something I strongly concur with.

We finish with a shot of Lyta growing gills…

…and I thank the Goddess I was not on the set for that scene for I strongly believe that I would have been once again… asked to leave.

Babylon 5: Season 3, A Day in the Strife

finishing disc oneThis was a really chock full episode, the Narns coming to take away G’Kar (I am always impressed when I see the alien makeup on this show, especially G’kar’s chest) Na’Far and Ta’Lon both nicely played. I noticed Richard Biggs’ beautiful future wife strolling though the scene between he and Garibaldi right before he goes to the bathroom to do stims, when he returns he dances with the future Lori Biggs, I wonder if they were already dating by then or if they met right there and then….I have to ask her about that.

Once again I am struck with sadness looking at all of the actors who have passed onto the Rim from this show. What a strange thing to be watching Andreas, Richard , Jeff and everyone else who has passed away, they are so full of life and talent and light in this show….

The conversation Garlibladi has with Franklin about his own alcohol abuse and his concern for Stephen’s stim abuse has so much more meaning to me now, it’s funny to think that I had no experience with abuse at that point in my life when I was on B5….and now it’s all I do; deal with addicts and try to help them and their loved ones…..funny how life worked, out. More than a wee ironic too!
The side story about the alien probe asking us to answer highly advanced questions added some tension and suspense to an already tight episode directed by David Eagle, one of my favorite directors on Babylon 5. I always felt like David “got b5” and had respect for the material and the integrity of the actors, not like the Italian fellow who directed one episode of B5 and had clearly not bothered to watch any of the episodes; the first thing he told me was to “act sexier”, I thought I was going to clobber him right there; Bruce had to stop me from telling him where he could put his “sexiness” notes!
I found myself tearing up a little watching Londo say goodbye to Vir and also when the Narns on the station forced G’Kar to stay on B5 even though their families were at risk, very good scenes about loyalty and friendship an enduring theme is this show.

I think what I took away from being on B5 was just that: Loyalty and Friendship, I will always be loyal to the fans who helped make this show eternal and I have made so many friends on the show and through the show…..A very nice feeling indeed.

Babylon 5: Season 3, Convictions

vejarThe second episode of season 3 starts with me thinking about the guest stars… Patrick Kilpatrick, Cary -Hiroyuki Tagawa… the fellow who played Brother Theo: Louis Turrene, John C. Flinn the 3rd as the obnoxious man telling the story where “Netter syndrome” comes up boy that wa s funny scene… and of course Doug Netter was our executive producer… very funny! John was our Director of photography o course but he had done some acting in his youth so the producers threw him a role here and there, I think he was terrific and Bill played his role with typical Lennier decorum and nobility.

I get a bit sad seeing Jeff Conaway looking so young and healthy… he was a good man with a wonderful smile, a total pro… I miss him.

This is also the first time I hear someone else saying “No boom”… I wonder if that was planned… that guest star-bomber fellow reminds me a lot of John Malcovich… and when he says “no boom” I nearly fell off my chair!

… Another great line in this episode is Londo saying “I will start bleeding from my ears”…can Peter Jurasik be any better??  He is brilliant as Londo and Andreas just chews up the scenery full stop, now I know why people go on and on about their scenes together , they really do have a chemistry that is pure brilliance.


When Lennier gets hurt saving Londo and Delenn I have to admit; I do not recall that in the script…I guess I wasn’t around the set for those med lab scenes where he’s all banged up and in a coma. When Londo tells the lightbulb joke I actually expected Lennier to tell the punch line… I had to wait until later for the outcome of that scene… just as if it was airing for the first time.
Hey, it’s fun seeing this series for the first time! I’m actually getting a kick out of watching us all act and because it’s been so many years, i can’t remember the scripts so I have to wait to see what happens… just like you did the first time you saw B5.

Hmmm, I wonder what happens int he next episode… I’ll have to wait until this weekend to watch it, it’s a 3-day weekend so perhaps I’ll get to watch more than 2!

See you soon!
