After 5 years of dramatic on-the-bubble existence, Josh Schwartz’s heartfelt espionage comedy Chuck leaves the airwaves tonight. Join us as we live-blog the final 2 hour episode featuring our favourite lanky do-gooder. 8:01- we pick up with Chuck worrying about Sarah (last seen with the intersect in her head, separated from Chuck on a bullet […]

Cinematic Baggage and the Television Star
  Rachael Nisenkier

Sometimes it’s fun when your favorite TV star pops up in a movie (I know I got a little thrill every time I heard the erst-while Chuck’s voice coming out of Flynn Ryder’s mouth in last year’s Disney offering Tangled). And sometimes you find yourself wondering, “Why is McDreamy being so mean to Shia LaBeouf?” […]

New Season, New Reviewer, Same Old Chuck
  Tessa Cernik

Hey My TV Fans, Today we’re introducing a new writer to the site. With a review of Chuck‘s 3rd season so far, here’s Tessa Cernik: Chuck is back and the same as ever. Not to say that that’s necessarily a bad thing. In fact, considering the current state of NBC, it might be nice to […]

My love for the redeemable bad boy has been well chronicled on this site, and with my ever-abiding and increasing love for Glee‘s Puck and HIMYM‘s Barney as continuing proof, I suppose it hasn’t really ended. But recently, while rewatching Veronica Mars Season Three (because, well, if it’s a season that I can’t quote entirely […]

Gilmore Girls/Samantha Who comedy queen Melissa McCarthy is joining Kelsey Grammar on Hank this fall. That there is enough of a reason to watch (even if there’s no love lost between you and the former Frasier Crane) Summer Glau’s guest turn on Dollhouse is no longer rumour and fantasy but reality. Whedonites rejoice! That guy […]

Each of us here at My TV has our specialties. For example, Lauren likes comedy so she mostly sticks to sitcom coverage. I watch pretty much everything from Big Brother to The West Wing, commenting mostly on whatever provokes an emotional reaction from me (whether it be a moving scene between Nicki and Bill Henrikson, […]

CHUCK LIVES…. on some conditions
  Kelly Bedard

Great news for fans of Josh Schwartz’s cult hit/espionage comedy Chuck! Against all odds, Chuck and friends will be returning to NBC next year. The highly improbable pickup comes on the heel of many a “save our show” campaign (including a clever Subway promotion) and even a shout out on The Daily Show (see our […]

After four straight episodes of unadulterated awesomeness, the Chuck (hopefully) season finale found itself with a heaping helping of high expectations and lingering plot threads needing to be tied up. So how’d it fair? Well… that’s a complicated question. The first half of the episode featured an Intersect-less Chuck attempting to get through Ellie’s wedding, […]

I am a serious fan of genre fiction. I say this to distinguish myself from people who like Lost despite the science fiction or enjoy Buffy while despising horror. It’s not a value judgment; it’s a question of taste. For me, stories that come from a deep internal mythology speak more heartily and more truly […]

To say that being a loyal Chuck fan since I downloaded the first episode for free on ITUNES has paid off way bigger than I ever guessed it would is to underexpress to the extreme. Chuck has become something much bigger, grander and greater than I could have ever imagined. And it just keeps getting […]

Man, I picked a fine time to go on a mini-Chuck hiatus. The past three episodes have been the best of the series’ entire run. They’ve been game-changing awesomeness with more than enough goofy character stuff to satisfy all types of fans. More than that, they really concentrated on Chuck and his tenuous relationship with […]

The problem with the current Chuck storyline (basically, Chuck’s continuing attempts to get the Intersect out of his head and regain his normal life) is that it leaves us, as the audience, secretly rooting against our protagonist. If Chuck regains his normal life, even if he’s able to finish school and get a real job […]

One of my closest friends always tells me that the thing he loves most about me is that I define “cool” in the complete opposite way from most people. The generally accepted truth is that “cool” means something or someone popular, aloof and a leader of the crowd; “Cool” is the ability to remain calm […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

For those of us who love all things Chuck-y, this was a pretty up and down episode. The plot went like this: hottie-accented-spy-guy from last week escapes (conveniently) from Fulcrum to come and make googoo eyes at Sarah while Chuck clings weakly to his self-respect, and ineptly saves Sarah and Casey from gun point, before […]

Everything I Need to Know about Friendship I Learned from Chuck

Your friend’s life is worth risking your own for. Family isn’t necessarily biological.  Your best friend’s dream is your dream.  Everyone deserves someone who cares about them “that much” (read: as much as Chuck cares about Morgan, Ellie and Sarah). … and, most importantly… “Partnership is Trust”– Captain Awesome and Jeffster

Stealing My Heart on TV This Week
  Kelly Bedard

The titular Chuck, Tara’s sweetly understanding husband, a softspoken Dillon Panther. Time for another picture list.

  Kelly Bedard

What I love this week…. Maria Schneider. Big Band is back people! Slings & Arrows Season 2. Particularly the Romeo & Juliet stuff. Yvonne Strahovski on Chuck. Proving week after week that Buffy was really kind of a lame character afterall on the grand scale of hot blond super crime fighters. The fact that it’s […]

  Rachael Nisenkier

This week’s Valentine’s Themed CHUCK offering was everything I could hope for as a diehard. The Chuck and Sarah tension was perfect. This week’s mystery (involving a cul–de-sac full of Fulcrum) was satisfying, intense and funny. Even the Buy More stuff (so often the downfall of other wise fantastic episodes) was spot on and heralded […]

Now, I’m not one of those people just looking for the Daily Show proclaimed President Gallant to fail. I’m willing to give him time on the Stimulus plan, on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, on closing down Gitmo and getting the educational system back on the right track. I don’t shake my fists in […]

Third Time’s the Charm for Chuckles
  Kelly Bedard

I tried to watch Chuck when it premiered and then sort of forgot about it. Part way through it’s first season I picked it up again only to redirect my attention towards more captivating series. Then, after the show won accolades from fellow My TVwriter Rachael, I picked up the season one DVD and tried […]

Tara’s Family supportive husband Max, somewhat rebellious daughter Kate and sweet son Marshall are the perfect compliment to the central craziness in United States of Tara. Scrubs The new season is very sweet. The 8th season comedy also deserves some serious thanks for being one of the only shows with new episodes this week. Captain Awesome I’m watching season […]

Chuck Versus Santa Claus
  Rachael Nisenkier

Just as I was extolling the virtues of the Christmas Special Episode, it turned out one of my favorite television series currently on the air was prepping one hell of a holiday themed blowout. Chuck Versus Santa Clause had everything a holiday episode cliffhanger should: every cast member stuck together (thanks to a robbery/hostage situation […]

I’ve decided to do my first blog post as an addendum to Kelly’s earlier Crush list, because there’s some tv-shows that even the great Ms. Kelly hasn’t gotten into and I think there are certainly dream-worthy boys deserve some crushing-love. So without further ado, my TV Crushes (in no particular order): First and foremost, one […]

how many Chucks can a wood Chuck Chuck?
  Kelly Bedard

you’ve heard me speculate on there being more than 1 doctors Shepherd and Burkebut how many characters with one name can there be? let’s see. This season 4 new shows premiered with a character named Chuck- not exactly the most common name to begin with. and yes it did take me this long to notice- […]

  Kelly Bedard

Its one of those in between shows- not brilliant by any means but still entertaining and worth the watch. I decided to give it another chance and since I liked the second episode a lot better than the first I think I’ll go back indefinitely. may I just say though that Zach Levi is entirely […]

  Kelly Bedard

OK, not amazing, kind of average but again, like most TV shows out there, worth the watch. Chuck is adorable and fun (though very badly edited), I liked seeing Sarah Lancaster (Everwood) back on screen and some elements are really cute (like Chuck’s affectionate nickname for his sister’s boyfriend ‘captain awesome’) but Journeyman is actually […]
