“I love Chuck Bartowski, and I don’t know what to do about it.” You and us all, Sarah Walker!
Friday night NBC aired the two-hour series finale of ‘Chuck’ and we were definitely not prepared for the emotional roller coaster it took us on. As we sat eating our Sweet Onion Chicken Teriyaki sandwiches from Subway, we quickly realized that our napkins would be used for wiping away tears, not teriyaki sauce. (Just because we’re Surly, doesn’t mean we don’t have hearts, and Mr. Bartowski stole them 5 years ago.)
It was quite a surprise when Super-Spy Sarah, who we already knew was on a mission to kill Chuck, showed up bruised and bloody and knocking on his door two minutes into the first hour. We thought the writers would make us wait a lot longer for the reunion of memory-wiped Sarah and love-will-conquer-all Chuck. It was brutal watching her lie straight to his face, cuddling up and pretending to love him still, all while being fed info from the villainous Quinn. Our heartbreak was only deepened as we watched Chuck become suspicious of the woman he loved, as he knew instantly that she wasn’t the Sarah he married. (Side note: Peter Bishop needs to take a few lessons from Chuck, as he couldn’t even tell that he was dating a completely different human entity when Fauxlivia showed up on ‘Fringe’)

The Burbank branch of Buy More is having a liquidation sale and will close forever in three days. Our beloved Nerd Herders will be out of a job as of 10 PM Friday night as the series finale of ‘Chuck’ comes to an end.
Since 2007 we’ve been loyal viewers of the unlikely spy and his team of outcasts and we’re sad to see them go. There will be no more impromptu, poorly timed Jeffster! shows, no more Subway product placements, no more thinly veiled excuses for Sarah to disrobe and no more reasons for Casey to grunt or snarl in response to pretty much any questions thrown his way. It’s a sad day indeed.
So the premieres are few and far between these days, but tonight is going to be a good one! And it’s all about NBC!
At 8 PM we have the return of everyone’s favourite nerd herder, ‘Chuck’. To be honest, if this were season two we’d be having a premiere party complete with Subway and pocket protectors. However, after last season we are kind of falling out of love with our adorable, unlikely spy. Unless of course they pull out all the stops and FINALLY go with Andrea’s idea of an intersect virus that makes Morgan evil. That we would love to see!
Then, at 9 PM is the official premiere of ‘Grimm’. We know you know we love this show already. But it goes without saying, we’ll be watching it again tonight. It’s just so good, and with the premiere on tonight that mean it’s only one week until the next episode! We can’t wait to see what happens!
So yesterday I read an article about Sean Maher, and his revealing that he is gay on his new show ‘The Playboy Club’. (http://insidetv.ew.com/2011/09/26/firefly-playboy-club-actor-sean-maher-comes-out-ga/)
The ensuing words of support and love from the rest of the ‘Firefly’ cast on Twitter reminded me of why a show that lasted only one season has become such a big part of who I am.
Some people think that letting a television show influence the person you are is a laughable thing. They think that your life must be empty of anything else, which is far from the truth, at least in my case.
