Late Night Thoughts on Castle and Science

Just stayed up way too late getting caught up on Castle - the first two episodes of the season.

I don't generally mind technical details being wrong in small ways. But this is science. I get that the detective-ing is supposed to save the day, but it would have been nice to at least let science and rational planning have a try too. Or a nod.

A nod would have been nice.

"Science might have been able to fix this except obscure chemical X takes three days to extract" or whatever.

I would have liked that.
