I'm sorry for the fans that will miss this, but every open hour on NBC's schedule is better (hopefully) for Chuck.

This whole spies kick is meh. Who decided that spies should be the next big thing anyway? Regardless, I think CBS's Chaos might be worthwhile (debuting midseason). But it doesn't surprise me that the audience's appetite for the spy genre is very limited.

The viewers who made Chuck successful, I guess. Success breeds imitation.

Agreed. She's quite lovely and the main reason I'll miss the show.

So I'll miss seeing her (though hopefully she'll get a gig on a better show soon). And the actress playing her sister is pretty hot too.
Agreed. She's absolutely amazing to look at, and man, when I heard her real accent in an interview I think I stopped breathing for a second.

Re: Undercovers Cancelled

I knew this'd fail as soon as I heard it was about two married spies. Way to not have any will-they-or-won't-they romantic tension, showrunners.

I mean, seriously. I'm not a betting man but I might have bet $100 on it not making a second season, even with JJ producing.

It seems like we only want to watch spying on ourselves like on Covert Affairs or Nikita

Is it true they had the couple go undercover in North not South Korea?

It's not that unusual. The 60's also had an annoying oversaturation with spy shows (The Man From UNCLE, Wild Wild West, Mission:Impossible, Get Smart, ...) and the usual crapload of crime stuff. Same during the 90's.

The episode had them go into the north under the guise of Canadian food relief inspectors. It helps that Boris Kodjoe (the male lead actor) is fluent in English, French and German. That way at least his acting was believable, even if the script wasn't exactly Shakespeare material.

Chuck is a fun show, but it's never remotely been a ratings success. It's lucky to have been on NBC, where anything that isn't a flaming wreck will be renewed.

It's still a mystery where the spy show stuff came from. There wasn't any successful example on the air when it all broke upon us. Cover Affairs has since been proven successful, but what spawned it?

mythology storyline of upcoming episodes

plans are to air the next three episodes and then leave the final three in the can with the possibility they may run at some unknown point in the future, according to The Hollywood Reporter.com...

"And we find out in episode 12 or 13, I can't remember which, the real reason that Steven and Samantha were actually brought back to the CIA.
And we'll miss a cool guest stint by Dollhouse's Harry Lennix, who plays Steven's brother in an episode where the team heads to a Croatian casino to deal with counterfeiting. "We get to meet Steven's brother ... who we haven't really heard about. He's also an agent, and they get to be in the field together,
Undercovers canceled (and wait'll you hear what we may never see)
