A mistake, I think, and one that caters to the female audience at the expense of the male. Part of the charm of “Chuck” and something that made it different, original, and special, was the collision between the utterly ordinary and the secret spy world. Buffy, at its best and earliest had that as well.
Both lost that element, because the vocal female audience hated it. I.E. the mundane, the boring-funny (the scene with Chuck deliberately boring Casey in the first season with a discussion of which sandwich to take to a desert island was hilarious) … all repellent to female audiences which want princes, kings, queens, or as near as possible. See Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Tru Blood, etc.
Now it seems like its just the same. I’m sure the female fanbase will be happier. I can’t blame the writers — TV is a female/gay ghetto. But it sure lost anything special it had before. Mom a super-spy. Dad (now dead) a super-spy. Pathetic Alias ripoff. Like bad fanfic. Which most of TV resembles.
Come on down Ms. Hamilton! Chuck’s had no shortage of awesome sci-fi tie-ins, and this should be mega. Let’s get Levar Burton as a guest star next!
wow whiskey you’re kind of a he-man woman hater. Calm down dude.
1) Chuck skews more male than female and advertisers WANT that.
2) It’s not an Alias rip-off cause there’s no Rimbaldi ridiculous over-the top never-ending storyline. Besides, no show is truly original because plot basically comes from someone new coming to town or the protagonist moving to a new town then add in genre elements.
3)And honestly, you seem to think ALL women only want vampires. wtf man that’s ridiculous.
you need to seriously re-evaluate your view of the female sex unless you want to end up alone.
