Chuck is great fun as a show and Sarah is HOT.

Re: Chuck: not all that good

I bailed after the premiere. In fact, I don't think I made it to the end of the premiere.

But then I saw a couple episodes later in the season, and I'll give it another shot this fall. Zach Levi and Adam Baldwin have settled into a fun chemistry. The other characters all bore me, and the premise is still pretty thin, and there's the problem that Chuck will be on Mondays along with about half the shows I want to watch each week (wassup with that? ) but that's why God made VCRs for DVR-deprived cheapskates like me.

If they don't do something to make "Chuck" progress along a storyline, then it's doomed.
If the show keeps stalling in S2, I'm bailing again. My interest is predicated on the notion that the story will go somewhere.

Re: Chuck: not all that good

I enjoyed it enough last year that I've got it queued on Hulu.

Of course, I've got everything I'm remotely interested in queued on Hulu.

But Chuck I actually look forward to and watch.

I watched one episode and never went back. It sucked.

I personally love Chuck. I think it's actually my favourite new show from last season. There's just something incredibly charming about it, and it's also a very entertaining show.

Harmless fluff. My son liked it last year, so we may give it a go again.

I love it. It's just a lot of fun, and it's a great lead-in to the darker "Heroes" on Monday nights.

Yeah. That's the way to keep your job. Not to mention the true meaning of the word "professional".



Count me in as a Chuck supporter.

Great show. Sure it's not that heavy or deep but it's darn entertaining.

Re: Chuck: not all that good

"Chuck" is a fun romp once a week. It has a good balance of humor, drama, romance, action and geekiness that appeals to me, but I can def. see how it's not for everyone.

Re: Chuck: not all that good

In my opinion, it's not the greatest show, but I found it to be fun and a bit lighthearted.

Reaper I kind of lost track of because they kept moving it around here. It was another new show that I enjoyed though

Just re-watched "Chuck vs. the Crown Vic." Casey's face when the Crown Vic meets its fate is just priceless. Not to mention the scene where he's waxing the Vic - "shiny!"

The Buy More gang got some good screen time in this one too. I can't help it - I love Morgan & Anna, Jeff & Lester, Big Mike - they're all such fun. I even miss Harry Tang.

Re: Chuck: not all that good

I love Chuck, can't stand Reaper to be honest. I thought there was an arc, albeit a subtle one, about Fulcrum, that would no doubt have built up more momentum if the series had gotten a full first season instead of an aborted thirteen episodes, along with the arc about the second Intersect (and, if we read the comics - a third one).

Re: Chuck: not all that good

I didn't watch this during it's original broadcast, but caught up with it over the summer, and I'm glad I did. I really don't care if there's a major background story arc - in fact I'm burned out on the whole "Big Mystery That Keeps You Coming Back Week After Week!" Though of course the premise of the show does include one with the Intersect and "what's going to happen to Chuck?" when v 2.0 goes live.

A lighthearted episodic show full of attractive people and fairly sharp writing that tweaks the spy and geek genres? Fine by me.

Re: Chuck: not all that good

"Chuck" was my favorite new show last season. "Reaper" grew on me eventually, but it was never quite as much fun as I'd hoped it woud be. "Chuck" was consistently more entertaining . . . .
