After a serial killer imitates the plots of his novels, successful mystery novelist Richard "Rick" Castle receives permission from the Mayor of New York City to tag along with an NYPD homicide investigation team for research purposes.
In the recurring intro of season 2, Castle compares his and Beckett's relationship to "Turner & Hooch". Scott Paulin, who plays Jim Beckett (Kate Beckett's father) plays a role in Turner & Hooch (1989).
Richard Castle: Always.
To obtain reluctant witnesses' cooperation, Castle will occasionally offer to name a character in his Nikki Heat books after them, often right in front of Beckett, or Ryan and Esposito. While it might appear to be a harmless offer, any competent defense attorney could paint it as bribery and witness tampering, which are both illegal; as cops, they don't seem bothered by an action that could potentially get a solid case against a suspect thrown out at trial.
