Hitchcock in modern television

Abc family’s tv series “Castle” recently embraced the Hitchcock influences that other popular shows like “The Simpsons” had already incorporated into their programs. In the Castle episode from season 5 “The Lives of Others,” the lead actor has suffered from a knee injury and is homebound for six weeks. Across the street he gets involved in a possible homicide between an adulterous woman and her husband. Throughout the episode, the protagonist, using a pair of binoculars, tracts the apartment to uncover clues about the missing wife. Anyone who has even remotely heard about the basic plot of Rear Window would recognize the basic references to Hitchcocks film. This reference is just one of thousands that have praised Hitchcock, his works, and his legacy.
