I'm cutting Chuck loose. I made the decision before the first commercial break of Episode 2. I was borderline after the pilot, but I wanted to like it, so I gave it another chance. But at its core, it's really a pretty stupid show. The premise is ridiculous, but even if you forgive that (as I have on other shows with ridiculous premises), it's not funny enough and not dramatic enough. It's just a whole lot of energy wasted. Just last year, Andy Barker P.I., for example, did the unlikely hero better.
Update:Tell Me You Love Me and Heroes are out of the penalty box. Both got back to storytelling this week. It would have been a relief to dump them - and that day might still come - but it was certainly a pleasant surprise. Neither was great, but both were at least interesting.
