I'm glad. I guess I was mis-reading January as a bad thing, failing to realize most of the shows go on hiatus after Thanksgiving and through the holidays.

Bummer that Trauma won't get its "back 9" order. I kind of like the show, but I don't think it's getting enough traction to survive. I kind of wish it and Southland would find second lives on another network that isn't sabotaging its schedule with a prime time talk show.  icon_neutral

Chuck and Heroes, back together again!

Quote
     UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – November 19, 2009 – NBC’s action-comedy series “Chuck” returns to the NBC lineup on Sunday, January 10 with all-new missions and two action-packed, back-to-back original episodes in its season premiere (9-11 p.m. ET) before the series -- starring Zachary Levi in the title role -- moves to its regular day and time (Mondays 8-9 p.m. ET) beginning January 11.

    In addition, "Chuck" returns with guest stars galore in its third season. These include: Angie Harmon (NBC’s “Law & Order”), who will play Sydney, an enemy operative; Brandon Routh (“Superman Returns”), who is set to play CIA Agent Daniel Shaw; Robert Patrick (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”) will play Colonel Keller, a soldier and spy from Casey’s past; Kristin Kreuk (“Smallville”), who will portray Hannah -- a potential love interest for Chuck; Armand Assante (“Judge Dredd”) as dictator Premier Goya, who is the target of an assassin; Steve Austin (“WWE Smackdown!”) will portray Hugo Panzer, who becomes entangled in Chuck’s first solo mission; and Vinnie Jones (“Snatch”) will play Carl Stromberg, an arms dealer.

    In other programming news, a special two-hour episode of "Heroes" will be broadcast on Monday, January 4 (8-10 p.m. ET) and then the series moves to its new time slot of Mondays (9-10 p.m. ET) starting January 11.

    “Josh (Schwartz) and Chris (Fedak) and the writing team are doing a great job this season, and we think the loyal fan base for this show will be happy to see it back on the NBC schedule,” said Angela Bromstad, President, Primetime Entertainment, NBC and Universal Media Studios.

    In “Chuck,” the world's nerdiest secret agent is back in the one-hour action-comedy series. Chuck Bartowski (Levi, "Less Than Perfect") continues as the Buy More electronics store computer geek, who unwittingly becomes the government’s most vital secret agent. Chuck is transformed into the Intersect 2.0 after another data download into his brain. This time, he not only knows government secrets, but he is also well equipped with deadly fight skills. Chuck has the potential to become a real agent, but he has one problem -- his emotions. Now he faces the battle of keeping his emotions in check in order to protect himself and the people around him.

    The ever stoic Colonel John Casey (Adam Baldwin, "My Bodyguard") returns with partner Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski, "Gone"), one of the CIA's top agents and Chuck's dream girl. As Chuck assumes his new role as the Intersect 2.0, Casey and Sarah need to protect him but also help him become the agent he is destined to be.

So I have the NYC Rockafellar Center tree lighting on in the background for some reason still and Zachary Levi is one of the hosts. They've shown a couple Chuck S3 spots now. 'No more Mr Nice Spy' has been their catchphrase so far.

I can't wait! nod

They're hawking Chuck 2.0 (Season 3) very heavily on NBC these days. Although I know we've been told less of the show will take place at the Buy More, I like the snippet where he accidentally karate kicks one of his co-workers there.  icon_smile That gets the point across that even though he gets "programmed" with Spy abilities, he may not always be able to control them. I anticipate lots of physical comedy.  icon_smile Compared to Jay Leno and some of this season's new shows, Chuck's ratings probably now seem epic to NBC. They probably miss it.  icon_biggrin

If you want to catch up on Season 2 (or get a would-be fan caught up), just a reminder SyFy is having a 8-hour mini "Chuck Season 2" marathon starting today (Thursday, Jan. 6) at 5 p.m. until 1 a.m. It's not the whole season obviously, though it at least includes the premiere and season finale, and choice episodes in between.

5 Reasons to Watch Syfy's 'Chuck' Marathon
http://insidetv.aol.com/2009/12/17/5-reasons-to-watch-syfys-chuck-marathon/

I doubt we'll see Bryce Larkin anymore since the actor got his own show on USA. Which is fine, it should make the show more "Chuck-centric."  icon_smile

The Season 3 trailer segment where he starts spouting, I'm guessing, fluent Mandarin Chinese, or something at the Buy More is pretty funny.  icon_lol

Hey! I saw the Season 2 DVD Chuck sets flooding the shelf at Best Buy. Wanted to check prices at other places first (it's $44.99 at BB). The Best Buy version has an exclusive comic book. And apparently "limited editions" include a set of paper 3-D glasses to watch some episodes that were also filmed in 3-D.

I believe Target is initially selling it at $36.99 (at least online), but no special Target-only perks.

I missed the Marathon but did go ahead and pick it Season 2 at Target for the $36.99 price I mentioned. I have a $15 Best Buy coupon but I'm reserving it for a game.  icon_smile

I'm not sure how it gets much more over the top than the one scene with Casey and the helicopter.

That said... the ridiculousness of this show is part of why I love it. I was grinning like an idiot during pretty much that whole thing. I really missed this show.

Two decent episodes. Not great, but not bad. I think I was expecting too much after the amazing stretch of episodes we got at the end of season 2. Still AWESOME by any stretch of the imagination - the show just left me wanting more, as it always does.

Spoiler for Hiden:
I have to admit, the first half of the first episode was really depressing, what with Chuck losing his spy gig, losing Sarah and then just losing his motivation. But the first buy-more scene was brilliantly done. All the more reason to write-out Emmitt.

Of course, it's AWESOME to see that Intersect 2.0 doesn't work as intended. I don't want Chuck to not be Chuck as the show moves forward. I was very concerned that the intersect would make writing out of problems too easy (I still am) and I was even more concerned that Chuck would no longer be himself with the changes.

Thankfully, Zachary Levi brings an AWESOME level of nerdiness to the role, and just completely owns the character that there's no longer any doubt in my mind. Watching him manage the laser beam maze perfectly, only to chuck it all up at the end, was perfect. Completely what I would expect the character to do. I'm glad that he's becoming more accepting of his role as spy, and I'm glad that he's migrating more towards the future of what that means for him.

I think the worst part was the near-complete reset that was set up at the end of the first episode. Everyone's moving back into their original places; back to working at the buy-more; Casey, Morgan and Chuck ALL working at the buymore together (a little too convenient IMO but it's AWESOME to have the team back together)

And I didn't know that Tony Hale was leaving the show. I'm kind of sad to see him go, since his obnoxious character was a great counter-balance to the buy more employees. However, I'm glad that I didn't know he was leaving so when he got shot in the head I emphatically said YES! Glad to see that tool kick the bucket.

But that's all secondary to the core of the show and season - Chuck and Sarah's relationship is just so brilliantly done and portrayed that I can't help but love the ins and outs of their relationship. They clearly care for each other and to see the job getting in the way of that constantly; but I think that they need to make them a spy-couple ASAP.

I guess immediately following tonight's episode, we can start worrying about getting a season four, right?

One more note - I did quite enjoy the two Ellie/AWESOME/Morgan Honda Crossover/Vancouver 2010 commercials. I think that it's brilliant marketing and I had to rewind the DVR to go back and watch it. I wonder if they'll show the commercials during other shows?

Did anyone else feel like it felt like totally different writers?  These two eps just didn't feel the same as season 2 did -
Spoiler for Hiden:
much more cold and distant, bigger gaps in the writing it felt like, brutally killing off characters?  Did anyone ever get shot on the head on screen in the first two seasons, let alone a supporting character?  Plus while I loved seeing the characters again, I hated the total and complete reboot of everyone, including Big Mike.  Feels VERY lazy.  Can't we see the characters in different settings or something?

Sarah seemed hotter in season 2, too.  Maybe it was just the cold, distant Sarah in this ep that dampened her hotness.

I thought part of the deal of getting the show back was a big budget cut, which I imagine made reusing existing sets pretty important. Maybe Big Mike was cheaper too. slywink

Yeah I was pretty shocked. My 74 year old mom (never watched the show before) seemed to enjoy things, and also gasped at that moment. I thought maybe the bad guy used a tranquilizer dart or something, but I think the ensuing scene removed that possibility.  icon_razz

I thought the two episodes worked well in terms of reintroducing everything. The 2nd hour confused me for a bit cause I thought for a few minutes maybe it was a rebroadcast of something from late last season. It's great (if you're a fan) to get 3 episodes in 2 nights.  icon_cool

Judging from upcoming footage, Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) seems to play a fellow agent with a thing for Sarah. And comes across very smug and arrogant -- probably Routh was ecstatic to get to play someone slimy for a change.  icon_smile I assume Kristin Kreuk (Smallville) is some sort of new love interest for Chuck, and there'll be some interesting tangles from all that.

I've never seen Kristin Kreuk in anything... ever. I can only hope she's better than Rachel Bilson was in her short stint on chuck. That woman was terrible.

Jordana Brewster was pretty solid though. And hot. And also hot.

I read Kristin Kreuk was indeed coming in as a new Buy More employee and love interest for Chuck to offset Brandon Routh and create a four-way love intersection.

I enjoyed the 2 eps not quite as much as I thought I would, but still was very happy to see the show back again.

Quote
I think my biggest problem with the "plot" was not being able to accept Chuck not taking Sarah up on her proposal, after all they'd been through and all he'd already seen.  It just didn't feel consistent with his love for her and maybe more importantly, what he's seen the govt capable of in the past.  This is the same govt that was ready to kill him last season and yet now he's willing to sacrifice the chance of a lifetime with the love of his life to work for them?

Much as I love the show, I do feel like the whole Chuck-Sarah "romantic tension" stuff is at some point going to either run out of gas or just feel drawn out (if it isn't already). If the show does end after this season, then I'd be happy to just watch them run away together in the sunset and live happily ever after.  icon_smile

But what are they going to do? Let them just start boinking like rabbits? (which will have people drag out the Moonlighting comparisons). Just throw out the romance stuff altogether and have them act like robots towards each other? Give them both amnesia? I find their relationship fundamental to the show, but I don't know how many "I love you," "You can't love me," "We can't love each other," "I can't be with you even though I want to" moments the show can have before it just becomes ridiculous.

My gut feeling is they're walking a decently fine line between not alienating us "core" fans altogether and hopefully attracting a more casual audience into "discovering" the show. Who knows if it'll succeed, but it is rare for a show to get a 3rd season when its ratings have been so-so.

The previews for Heroes again remind me why I lost interest in that show after season 1. It just seems to be utterly bathed in grim pathos again, and the sense of fun that was at least somewhat prevalent in Season 1 seems to still be extinguished. Maybe they need a Chuck crossover.  icon_lol

Enjoyable episode.

Nice to see Devon getting a chance to help out. Looks like a fun one next week as well.
