There's nothing like a good basic-cable marathon to catch up on a favorite show. Castle is no exception. Season 5 of the mystery series starts this week, but it's always good to check back on past seasons to see if you missed anything. This Wednesday, TNT will be airing an 11-episode Castle marathon to help with this. Find out the details here!

TNT will begin syndicating Castle this week and the network is having a marathon of episodes to celebrate that. The cable network will begin with an 8-episode marathon starting at 12pm on Wednesday, September 26. These 8 will all be important or favorite episodes designed to give you a taste for the goodness of Castle.

Following this marathon, TNT will continue with the Castle craziness. Starting at 8pm, the network will air the first three Castle season 1 episodes ("Flowers for Your Grave," "Nanny McDead" and "Hedge Fund Homeboys") in order.

Regular airings of Castle will begin on TNT starting on October 3. The show will then be broadcast each Wednesday. During the daytime, you can watch Castle episodes between noon and 6pm. More episodes will air Wednesday evenings from 8pm to 11pm.

Combined with new episodes airing on ABC each Monday at 10pm, that should be enough Castle for anyone!
