Your favorite show sucks
You watch crap. Yes you do. I know it, you know it, the American people know it. Your consumption of mind numbing reality television and shows that have shown a sharp decline in quality (Heroes, Grey's Anatomy, Desperate Housewives) have ensured that programs that actually display some creativity and good writing be given the axe.
Due to low ratings NBC's Chuck may be one show that will no longer be with us. I can't understand how this may come to be. It's a very clever show with endearing characters, witty dialogue, and a concept that hasn't been done do death. Even the supporting cast is funny. Adam Baldwin is perfect in his role and.....
....okay you got me. Yes I'm so in love with Yvonne Strahovski that it's almost unhealthy. Since she's going to marry me it only makes sense that I fight the good fight and make sure she stays employed, cause she makes more money than me.
If there's one thing I've learned from sitcoms is that dopey dudes always end up with a hot wife so I'm banking on that. Hey they wouldn't include that in their scripts if it weren't true....or would they?
Seriously it is a better show than what you watch.
"The show pays attention to the mechanics of storytelling and doesn't just try to coast on the comedy. ... [Given] the level of attention paid to all those other things -- emotion, suspense, plotting, character -- Chuck ends up being one of the TV scene's greatest pleasures at the moment." - Maureen Ryan
