'Castle' Recap: 3x21 - 'The Dead Pool' Wades Into The World Of Swimming, Drugs And Murder

If there’s one thing the Olympics taught us, it’s that the competitive world of swimming is cutthroat, fierce, and populated with attractive men. ‘The Dead Pool’ starts with a young swimmer doing what he does best. Suddenly a dark figure approaches him. Cut to Castle, discussing his young writer friend Alex Conrad who is going to be in town. Castle wants Alex to follow him and Beckett around. Predictably, Beckett is not into this scenario at all. My prediction: Beckett is going to be charmed by Alex. Or Alex is actually the murderer.

Castle and Beckett arrive at the crime scene. The swimme...

Breaking Bad

Unlike another suburban drug dealing series, the torpid "Weeds", "Breaking Bad" offers a modern-d...

Varsity Fanclub
It is a widely accepted tenet in pop music that every generation needs its own young stars to scream for. So is it really surprising that a new group of fresh-faced young men have begun to make a footprint on the pop landscape? Even old-timers New Kids on the Block have reunited more than a decade after 'N Sync and Backstreet Boys ruled the charts. Clearly the members of NKOTB recognized that few people (even those of us old enough to own "Hangin' Tough" on vinyl), can resist the simple pleasure of five talented, upbeat guys singing and dancing in unison. It's been true since the Jackson 5 ...

Two weeks ago, nerds, geeks, and those "just going to San Diego for the weekend to check out the beaches" poured into Comic-Con 2008 in all their "Babylon 5"-clad glory.

Comic-Con is an ever-evolving beast. It started as a few dozen collectors meeting in a basement in San Diego to trade and discuss comics. Now it is an event so massive it shuts down an entire city for the weekend.

Comic-Con also holds a tremendous amount of power nowadays. Nervous directors unveil scenes from their latest superhero big-screen opus to the attendees, well-aware that a lukewarm response could spe...

Writer Dee Doyle
On behalf of Starpulse.com, I was invited to attend the ABC Family Party on Friday, July 25, at the beautiful Omni San Diego Hotel.

There were several of its best known stars wandering around the terrace, including stars from "Kyle XY" Jaimie Alexander and Matt Dallas, and they were greatly encouraging the press to learn all about their brand new show "Samurai Girl." The lovely star Jami...
