Every time Nathan Fillion talks about the Moonlighting Curse,

muppet47:

I want to sit him down and say in the nicest possible way, “Nathan. Honey.  Do you remember Moonlighting?  You might not, and that’s perfectly understandable because you were, like, 15 when it went off the air, and it’s been a while.  But it didn’t tank in the ratings because the two leads got together. It tanked because:

1. Dave and Maddy slept together ONCE, and then she got scared and ran off and married a literal stranger on a train.  And a dorky stranger at that.

2. Cybill Shepard was very pregnant with twins, then had twins, and consequently was absent from or barely in many of the episodes after they slept together.

3. Bruce Willis was off making movies and was absent from or barely in many of the episodes after they slept together.

4. Therefore, many of the episodes after they slept together didn’t involve them actually being together as a couple, or even being physically present at the same time.

5. Due to many problems (the huge amount of dialogue on Moonlighting, the fact the Cybill Shepard was very difficult to work with) episodes of Moonlighting were always behind schedule, and there was usually a long wait between episodes.

6. It was no secret that Bruce Willis and Cybill Shepard had a hard time working together, and by the end of the show could barely be civil to each other.

The audience thought they would see Dave and Maddy TOGETHER after they got together, and since Moonlighting didn’t show that, and frequently didn’t show them on episodes AT ALL, plus you had to wait FOREVER to even get a new episode, everyone stopped caring.

I mean, sure it would suck if you did it THAT way, but I don’t think any of these circumstances apply to Castle.  Really, stop worrying.  Castle and Beckett can get together and make out and have babies.  It will be fine.:)

@muppet47: FOUND IT!

and omg the list. I’ve never watched Moonlighting (well. i did, but just a few eps when they reruns it on tv recently) so i never knew what exactly happened that created “Moonlighting Curse”.. Thats why i’m really thankful for this.

AND ayayayayyy all the shocking truth over Moonlighting.

"1. Dave and Maddy slept together ONCE, and then she got scared and ran off and married a literal stranger on a train.  And a dorky stranger at that.”

Oh No SHE DIDN’T.

"2. Cybill Shepard was very pregnant with twins, then had twins, and consequently was ABSENT from or barely in many of the episodes after they slept together.”

well thats a very sucky sucky timing.

"3. Bruce Willis was off making movies and was ABSENT from or barely in many of the episodes after they slept together.

"4. Therefore, many of the episodes after they slept together DIDN’T involve them actually being together as a couple, or even being physically present at the same time.”

"5. Due to many problems (the huge amount of dialogue on Moonlighting, the fact the Cybill Shepard was very difficult to work with) episodes of Moonlighting were always BEHIND SCHEDULE, and there was usually A LONG WAIT BETWEEN EPISODES.”

Castle and Beckett can get together and make out and have babies.  It will be fine.:)

 

THAT! Really cleared things up. There are no moonlighting curse, just a series of bad event and bad luck.. Thank you, Muppet for making this list! :)
