The low down on Chuck

A colleague of mine thoughtfully forwarded me the news that Chuck has been picked up for a third season. You can read all about it here. I knew I could save Chuck!
The bad news is that they'll be cutting costs a bit, which hopefully won't translate into fewer scenes with Adam Baldwin (he's the man cake in the tux). But I'll take it.
Man cake is my new favorite phrase. I learned it on. . . wait for it. . . Chuck!
I haven't been this happy since Love Boat and Fantasy Island were shown back to back in the eighties. Chuck and Eureka are like Dallas and Falcon Crest. Or Buck Rogers and Battlestar Galactica. Or Star Trek TNG and Deep Space Nine. Or Angel and Buffy. Or a double episode of Frasier. Or. . .
OK, you get the idea. And I'm probably sharing way too much.
For the record, Ralf doesn't like Chuck. I tried to interest him in Sara, the hot blond CIA agent, but no dice.
Probably because he has me.
Last night Chuck untied his ex-girlfriend, who is also a dangerous double-agent, thus allowing her to capture his government handlers Sara and Casey. Fortunately, the bad guy was stopped in the end when the obese Buy More store manager Big Mike jumped on him in dramatic slow motion and knocked him out.
Ralf thought it was pretty lame. Personally, I thought it was a very realistic plot development and not a bit lame. I mean, look at them: Casey, Sara and Chuck.
Keeping America safe with humor, computers and kung fu.
What's lame about that??


  1. So, I guess this summer, I will be watching Chuck!

  2. You saved Chuck! You rock! : )

  3. Umm, I'm with Ralf. The short sleeves just don't do it for me.

  4. You're looking at Chuck. I'm looking at Adam!

  5. Hi, we love your blog and would like to invite you to list it in our Blog Directory at

  7. It sounds hilarious! Especially with kick ass plots, and hot dangerous CIA agents and new vocabulary like man cake...

  8. We just started watching season 1 - and so far, I love it! And I have you to thank for the tip - so thanks!!
