Remember how awesome the most recent episode of Chuck was? Chuck briefly met the man responsible for designing the Intersect, got treated like a real spy, and asserted himself with Sarah. And, best of all, he revealed that all along, he's been keeping close tabs on the information he's learned from his spy missions, inching closer to finding a way back to his normal life.
And then the next week was a repeat. Way to kill the momentum.
But Chuck is back tonight, and while the Mondays-at-8 hour has become one of the toughest of the whole week, I'm making a plea for watching the Bartowskis and Nerd Herders tonight. Even as Chuck's gotten better in recent weeks, its ratings have been dropping lower, and since it hasn't been renewed for a third season yet, it could use all the help it can get.
This week's episode is called "Chuck vs. The Predator," and it finds Chuck getting a message from a person with knowledge that could help rid Chuck of the Intersect for good. Meanwhile, there's a Buy More plotline I've been looking forward to for a while: Turns out, the Burbank store isn't particularly well-respected, as a visit to the much swankier Beverly Hills Buy More proves. It's just the first in an awesome-sounding string of episodes, which in the coming weeks will feature Battlestar Galactica's Tricia Helfer, Chevy Chase, and Scott Bakula in guest-starring roles. To check out a promo, just read more.
