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??
