Chuck, This Season

November 8, 2010

Chuck is among the few shows that I dropped this season.  Honestly, I didn’t even finish last season!  I guess Chuck’s new abilities changed the show too much for me.  I can see myself watching it in syndication or online sometime in the future, so it’s not completely off my radar.  But why force myself to watch a show I really have no interest in anymore?

What about you?  Anyone going to try to talk me into restarting?

Poll: Chuck’s ‘Do

Embarrassing tidbit: my husband and I always dance to the intro of Chuck.  It’s just really catchy.

I am behind several episodes of Chuck, so I can’t talk about what is going on with it right now.  But I will talk about this season.  We are behind a few episodes because we just haven’t been that into it!

I am torn about the new Chuck.  I love that the show evolved, and allowed its main character to change so much.  Too often shows are reluctant to allow their characters to evolve because they are afraid of losing their audience, and that is a shame.  Unfortunately, while I applaud the creators/writers for the changes this season, I’ve also lost a bit of interest.  I never quit a show mid-season, but we no longer watch it live, opting instead for How I Met Your Mother.

I do get a kick out of watching all the Subway references though.  I have no problem with product integration when it’s done well, and knowing the story behind it makes it fun to watch.  I guess we’ll just have to see if Subway can save Chuck again and bring it back for a fourth season.
