If you need any proof that the "Moonlighting" curse is just a legend, look no further than "Castle" Season 4. Desperate declarations of love at the end of Season 3 turned into a full-fledged, mature romance throughout the next year.
Why this worked:
Sure, Rick Castle and Kate Beckett were sleeping together, but they solved murders and traded jokes just like always. What more could you want? The main reason this worked is that the show didn't change anything when its stars started sleeping together. Yes, they kiss now, but 90 percent of "Castle" is everything the fans already loved about the show.
