Hey, remember when NBC had a show called Chuck? It was about some spies and a nerdy guy who gets a computer downloaded into his brain and has to save the world?
You can be forgiven if you've forgotten all about Chuck. After all, it's been six weeks since the last new episode aired. But now, the network is bringing the show back with a vengeance tonight, airing not one but two episodes — the final two completed before the writers' strike shut down production. And they're not even playing back-to-back; instead, they're sandwiched around an episode of The Celebrity Apprentice.
Why NBC would want to blow two episodes of Chuck at a time when scripted series are dropping like flies completely baffles me, but here we are with our Chuck sandwich ("in the reuben family"). The first episode introduces an ex-girlfriend of Casey's, while the second finds the CIA taking drastic measures to find the Intersect. Hey, the timing may be terrible, but at least the show itself sounds good. If you don't still have your season pass set, the episodes air at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. EST and PST. To watch previews for tonight's sandwich, just read more.
