Mega Buzz 04/15: "That 70's Show"

I loved the "Blue Butterfly" episode of Castle. How will the show handle the '70s? — Kristen

While the gang will again be delightfully costumed, "That '70s Show" is more grounded in reality. In fact, Castle, Beckett & Co. only dress up in disco-era garb to pry the truth from a witness who still believes it's 1978. Unfortunately for Beckett, the witness shares Archie Bunker's views on women, which forces Castle to take the lead on the case — and in turning back the clock on the 12th Precinct. (Just wait until you see Esposito's reaction to Lanie's Foxy Brown get-up!)

Screen Spy: Five Things to Know about "That 70's Show"

Screen Spy: Five Things to Know about "That 70's Show"

 A Little Project, They Said
Oh dear! It looks like Rick and Kate are regretting asking Martha to handle the flower arrangements for their wedding. With each of her ideas grander and more horrific than the last, the happy couple decides that she needs a “little project” outside of their nuptials to keep her busy.
However, Martha’s larger than life vision may just help solve the greatest mystery of the disco era. Keep thinking big, Martha!

To 70′s TV … With Love
Let’s be honest. This episode is really a love letter to 70′s TV. Look out for Kojak and his lollipop, Pam Grier’s Foxy Brown and  Ryan and Esposito’s Snooki (Snuckie? We’re not altogether sure of the 70′s spelling on this one) and Ray – Castle’s version of Starsky and Hutch. FYI, we would totally watch this spin-off series. Jon Huertas and Seamus Dever are hilarious as Esposito and Ryan as Snooki and Ray.

Captain Castle
Rick and Kate’s number one suspect would never buy that a woman, even one as tough, smart and independent as Beckett could possibly be in a position of power, and it takes a lot of resolve for Kate not to react to Harold’s terms of endearment, ‘cupcake’ being the least offensive in his repertoire. However when Harold infers that Rick is ‘Captain Castle’ it may just prove one straw too many.

Take a Bow, Precinct
The star of the show is the precinct itself, which undergoes a complete retrofit transformation when the case necessitates that Harold should come down and make a statement. Why can’t he do it from the comfort of his 70′s-themed home? Who cares! Just check out those typewriters and rotary phones and the muted brown and grey decor and that cast of thousands … wait! What? Yes that’s right. It seems the precinct isn’t 70′s enough without a cast of actors taken straight from an episode of The Rockford FilesKojak or The Rookies. Prepare to hear a lot of people calling each other “pig” and “fuzz” and getting both mixed up while doing it. And catch Stana Katic’s Beckett in a delightful comedy moment playing the role of a 70′s cop and getting the lines in her script wrong.

A modern Twist
The heart of this episode may be beating in the 1970′s but the twist (Who shot Vince Bianchi?) is one that would almost certainly never have played out on 1970′s TV. Prepare for a touchingly romantic reveal, viewers!

TVRage EXCLUSIVE: Michael Mosley Talks ‘Sirens’ and Playing a Villain on ‘Castle'

TVRage: Let’s switch gears and talk about your role on ‘Castle,’ where you play Jerry Tyson aka 3XK (The Triple Killer). What’s it like being known for playing a killer?

Mosley: I love that show. I love working on that show. I love everybody on that thing. You know what’s crazy? Fans of that show are rabid. I only did two episodes of that show, but people love the character and the storyline. It’s amazing. It’s amazing to play the bad guy. Playing the bad guy is so much fun. You get to find the good in the bad guy. Well, not the good, but part of the bad guy that the bad guy likes. He doesn’t think he’s bad. He thinks what he’s doing is justified. So, to find those things in him that are good. Does that make sense?

TVRage: I understand what you’re saying.

Mosley: Yeah, I don’t know if I’m articulating it very well, but it’s been awhile and people love that show. People love that character. So, that’s been fun to be a part of.

TVRage: Like you said, you’ve only been in two episode. Sometimes you’re not even in an episode, but your character is just mentioned and it sets the tone for the entire episode. What’s it like to play a role that has that kind of presence?

Mosley: I know! I don’t know. It’s crazy. I just want them to call me back. Not that I’m calling them. (laughs) It’s like, I’m like, ‘Hey, guys, I’m over here! I’m not shooting right now. Can I come?’ No, they don’t call me back, but I do want them to call back and invite me back to do more stuff. It’s so much fun and I want to chase Castle [Nathan Fillion] down into the woods or something. I feel like they have to put Tyson out, because he hasn’t really been killed yet. They don’t think he’s been killed yet.

TVRage: It’s very open-ended. I can only imagine you’ll come back sooner rather than later. I think fans would enjoy that as well.

Mosley: I hope so. I hope it’s not just another dead body in the dumpster. And, they’re like, ‘Oh, that’s Tyson. Someone got him before we did.’ It’s been awhile since they’ve been able to crack that character and that storyline. And like you said, they just mention the guy’s name and it just changes the whole kind of ego to the show. It’s been a cool ride.
