I've caught up on S3 Chuck and I can see the differences that a cut in the budget have made. There was one whole episode without a single scene in the Buy More, which was disturbing. It was kind of boring, but at least the next episode was recognizable as the old Chuck.

I like the Buy More characters and miss those that are gone because of what I assume where budget concerns. Although, I have to say I'm confused by the guest starts they're lining up so far. They seem on the expensive side, but maybe they're perceived as attracting people beyond the regular viewers. But I miss those who are gone :(

Oh my, episode 6 of Chuck had not just Star Wars but Dune references. Many mentions of Dune stuff and - oh love - I'm so into this show right now.

It only took two years and some serious pimping by several friends to finally get me hooked on Chuck. Really, I should have seen the pilot episode sooner, but like a lot of other series I've come in late and I've been seeing a lot of them out of order.

I went looking for fic last night but didn't find anything that sort of had the same kind of feel as the series. Chuck has a weird kind of vibe, the comedy always there and a lot of it laugh-out-loud stuff, but ... huh, I don't even know how to describe it or if I can come up with a single example of another series that I felt had the same thing going on. At this point I really care about the characters, so I'm starting from the beginning and sitting down for a few more episodes this week.

Other TV stuff...

We finally started watching Season 4 of The Wire, which takes on the schools. Ay. I already know it's going to break my heart, apart from the usual pissed-off-ness at bureaucracies, because of the kids.

Caprica. I bought it from iTunes and loved it. It fits wonderfully with the BSG I carry in my head. The series is supposed to premiere in January, but I wonder how well it will do. It doesn't the have battles and life and death struggles of BSG, it's more of a drama, so I'm wondering if it will find an audience.
