Chuck vs. The Lack of a Third Season

NBC’s Chuck has not been picked up for a third season yet.  WTF?!?!  Seriously?!?!  Also, there are rumors that it might not get a third season based upon lackluster ratings.  Yikes!  A universe without Chuck scarcely bears thinking about.

Chuck Season 2 Premiere – A Review of “Chuck Versus The First Date”

I watched the “Chuck” season two premiere online this week – Chuck Versus The First Date.  It was AWESOME!  (pun intended)  It was well worth the wait we’ve endured since last season.
