Posts filed under ‘Chuck – My favorite TV Geek.’
One of my favorite new shows is going to have quite the plethora of new faces next season…
First, Tony Hale (aka Buster Bluth) will be joining the cast as the new Assistant Manager at the BuyMore store.
Then, Nicole Richie (ugh) will be guest starring as a popular girl who used to make fun of Sarah when she was in high school.
And….my personal favorite….Ben Savage. Remember him? The cute curly haired kid from Boy Meets World will be joining Chuck as Nicole Richie’s “once a dork” husband.
What do you think of these new faces headed to hang out with our favorite superspy couple?
Check out this NBC promo for tomorrow night’s Chuck sandwich night! Yep…two episodes of Chuck are the bread to a Celebrity Apprentice sandwich tomorrow night.
Are you ready for more Chuck???? 🙂
Well first off….a big CONGRATULATIONS to Chuck! They have now been picked up for a whole season! YAY! (this is only if the strike ends…but rumors are that the talks went well this week and things may be coming to an end soon! double yay!)
Thoughts on tonight’s episode…
Morgan loves Ellie – I thought this was pretty entertaining. And found it pretty funny how mad Anna got when Morgan was gushing about Ellie’s sweet potatoes and she was loving it. (Side note: I may have thought this was funnier purely because at my own thanksgiving dinner I sliced open my thumb on a can of sweet potatoes and feel i have sacraficed for those who love sweet potato casserole with marshmellows)
Brice – I guess I need to go back and watch the first few episodes of the show to officially catch up on all the backstory of the Brice/Sarah/Chuck triangle. But Brice is very attractive…even if he is only semi-trustworthy. I was on the fence for most of the episode, although I think he won me over in the end.
I love the little things that make this show great. For example…when Brice and Chuck were having a serious discussion in the elevator…and in the background there is this fruity elevator music playing. Hilarious. Such a tiny little thing…totally added the ironic side to the moment. Also things like the goofy picture of Chuck on Sarah’s cell phone.
Who will Sarah choose? Obviously she will choose Chuck. Especially now since we know they got picked up for a whole season. But does she really have feelings for Chuck? Even now, since she knows that Brice is not the rogue agent everyone thought.
Lastly…a few words about Casey. He has no softness…geez. I felt bad for Chuck when Casey was like “Dont worry, If Sarah leaves, we will get you a new girl.” But his inappropirate honesty and harshness is also what makes his character great too. I’m torn. I like his character, and I dont. It’s a toss up. Actor Adam Baldwin did an interview with TV guide about his role on Chuck. It’s sort of fun.
My Thoughts (in no specific order):
Any show that begins their first scene in Helsinki is the best. My bro and I always jokingly tell each other “You are going straight to Helsinki.” It’s one of our little jokes.
“He is a reasonably charming guy.” -Sarah about Chuck – Oh come on Sarah, he is more charming than reasonably.
Morgan thinking he can kiss Anna after she compliments his Call of Duty skills. Since when did Call of Duty become love talk?
Stavros is a shipping heir? Hmm…sounds like they are basing this on real life a bit. Thinking of Stavros Niarchos the greek shipping heir who tends to date around young Hollywood.
Rachel Bilson as a sandwich maker is funny too. One of the first things she did in her career was a commercial for Subway where she was a sandwich artist. I have been searching to try to find a video of that, but I havent found it yet. I will post it if I do.
Lou and Chuck make such a cute couple. When they make up and start kissing I love how Lou jumps up and puts her legs around his waist when they are kissing. I guess thats how to deal with the “vast height difference” she refered to last week. I wish Rachel Bilson was staying for more episodes…come on Josh Schwartz….more R-Bils!!! PLEASE!
So far I havent been a huge Sarah fan, but she is growing on me. I enjoyed the interaction when they were in the trunk of the car. She gets all firey and says “Now shut up youre sucking up all the air” It made me laugh. But next week Brice is back? I missed some of the beginning episodes of this show and so I dont know the history between Brice and Sarah, but it doesnt look too good for Chuck…which is sad because he left her such a nice sweet message at the end of the episode…
Overall, not as good as last week’s episode, but I am loving Chuck!
Does anyone know if they have been picked up for a full season yet?
As you know I am a big fan of Prison Break and so that usually dominates the 7:00 central time slot for my Monday night TV viewing…but tonight I was able to watch Chuck in real time and not online as usual.
Well I am SO glad that I did and I have one thing to say… Nice Play Josh Schwartz! I have a feeling that it was no coincience that the running, Chuck trying to find Morgan at the Halloween party scene in tonights episode was a virtual mimic of the Ryan/Marissa running scene in Season 1 of The OC, the episode with the New Years party. They were even playing the same song that was used in the background! Dice by Finley Quaye & William Orbit. One of my favorite songs of all time!
Watch The OC version below.
thanks to dandelionx on youtube for the video and astralwish for the one below.
Here is the Chuck version. Thanks to SavetheOC for directing me to the youtube video.
This is something that only the most hardcore (or crazy) OC fan would recognize and it TOTALLY MADE MY NIGHT!!! Josh Schwartz you rock. Thanks for bringing some OC back to tv, at least in theory, and I am looking forward to seeing Rachel Bilson join the cast for a mulit-episode arc later this season.
This clinches it. Chuck has now officially made it to my Must See TV list!!!
