    IMO it was HORRIBLE.

    I really just hated it.. Stupid plot, and bad writing.

    The writing for the more dramatic scenes, I agree, was noticeably bad (as with most new shows debuting this fall, such as K-Ville). However, the comedic effect was brilliant, the character development was excellent, and I loved how they closed with "A Comet Appears" by The Shins.

    I will continue watching the show and see if the plot develops enough for me to become and avid viewer.

    I bet he will be the first guy to get fined by the judges.:p

    Im sure Chuck will get a good rating this week with the lead in to Heroes. Next week should be the test how long it sticks around.

    Lol, I hate dancing with the stars.

    That was on in the other room. I refuse to watch that.


    I just can't wait for my favorite show "House" to start back up.. Now that is a real show!

    I thought it was cool....I'll give it two more episodes to make something of itself.



    Bless

    It wasn't good, it wasn't bad. I can definitely see Josh Schwartz's touches in it, such as the scenic city shots transitioning between scenes, the music, and the lead guy looks exactly like Adam Brody from Schwartz's old show, The OC. (By the way, Rachel Bilson from the OC also has a story arc in it next month.)

    I don't write a program off until I've seen two episodes, but it's something that I'll try to catch every now and then.

    I read that NBC only ordered thirteen episodes.

    Yeah, and when it finally broke, all these tiny glass pieces came out of it.

    Now you can breathe, relax, face Cupertino, and pray another five times.

    From what I've heard, I sincerely hope we don't get this show aired over here.

    Anybody still watching this rather silly show?

    OK, maybe I peeked at it last night. And it was worth it for a single line.

    The "Buy More" store got a customer call, someone needing help with a Linux system. Chuck asked the other workers if they could go, and one said "No, we're Mac guys. We're I.T. artists!"

    Heh. Yeah, I saw that. My family quite enjoys it. Yeah, it's no Heroes, but it's a cute show, with lots of neat geek jokes. I thought episode 2 was better than the pilot.

    Its a decent enough show. Yeah, the script/acting -just about everything- could be improved, but at least the idea of the show has some originality. Thank God for that because I just can't sit down and watch the same TV show with just different faces over and over again.

    i enjoyed it...one of the best lines ever in the pilot too...

    when asked what he wanted to do later in life (or something, can't remember) he replies "working on my five year plan, just choosing a font". awesome.
