I want a Castle-HIMYM crossover

I've been re-watching Castle and I keep thinking of how awesome it would be if they crossover to the How I Met Your Mother universe. They're both set in New York City, so it's really not difficult to imagine the two shows collide (if we ignore the fact that they're on different networks). More importantly, I want Richard Castle and Barney Stinson to meet. I think they can either get along really well with, or just absolutely hate, each other.

I couldn't help but notice how similar Castle and Barney are. They're both quite childish and refusing to grow up. They're both wealthy playboys in the beginning of the series, now ready to settle down. They both subscribe to SkyMall! And, they can play laser tag together.

The plot can be about a murder; its investigation takes Castle and Beckett to MacLaren's bar. There, they meet the HIMYM gang. Then, Barney's shady job leads him to be suspect in the case and to the 12th Precinct. Since both shows are on Monday nights, they can air a crossover episode for each show on the same night. And they end up at The Old Haunt after Barney's cleared, because I just want to see that place again after Castle bought it.

Or, I can always search for crossover fanfictions. I'm sure this exists somewhere! (Or I could write one)

Castle: Season 4

I'm still in a Firefly withdrawal, so I decided to catch up on Castle. It's lacking the rest of the crew, but Nathan Fillion is definitely better than nothing at all. Also, how could I have never noticed Nathan's amazing hair? I was so obsessed with David Tennant's hair during my Doctor Who run, but it took me 3 or 4 times of Firefly/Serenity and twice through Castle to finally appreciate Nathan's.

Now that I've got that out of my system, let's go back to the show itself.

The Dark Knight Rises

Who knew that theaters have 3 AM showtimes?! So of course we went to that one! I have to say, that was quite the experience. Waiting for 3 AM to come wasn't the best part, but leaving the movie theater barely missing sunrise was pretty fun. Oh, and, also, the movie was great.

Firefly re-watch

In anticipation of Firefly's 10th anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con, I've decided to re-watch the show. Strangely, seeing how much I'm attached to the characters, I don't think I've watched this show too many times. With only 14 episodes and a movie, there are a few episodes that I don't quite remember. The thing about this show is that there's no weak episode; it's always either "I love this episode!" or "This is one of my favorites, for sure!"

Firefly is, I believe, the show that made me realize that I might actually like sci-fi. I wouldn't consider myself a fan of sci-fi before I watched this show, until someone recommended the series, knowing that I didn't watch sci-fi, but insisted that I would love the show. And she was definitely right. I always feel like I owe her for introducing me to Firefly (in turn, I introduced her to Chuck, Castle, and Sherlock, among others). But then again, it also means she exposed me to this sadness and void that its cancelation has provided.
