Does the current rise in shows about Geeks and Geek Culture (like Big Bang Theory, Chuck, etc.) signal something more theological than we thought?

Well, maybe and maybe not... but Dr. Starr is going to dive in anyway!

BREAKING NEWS: Chuck is back, V is back, FlashForward is as good as dead.

Republibot 3.0's picture

The Hollywood Reporter (No, I've never heard of it before either. Must be a local Florida paper or something) is reporting that FlashForward, the ambitious, experimental, but ultimately not-very-good SF series on ABC is dead, dead, deadily-dead.

Did I say 'dead?' That's actually a bit premature. The story doesn't actually *Say* FF is dead, but it's "Unlikely to return," this after its initial episode order was already whittled down by several hours several months back.

EPISODE REVIEW: CHUCK: "Chuck Vs. the Tooth" (Season 3, Episode 16)

Sam White's picture
About this time last year, "Chuck" was on the bubble. Would it be back for a third season? No one--including the producers (and, most definitely including the network, who should have known)--knew. Then the fans kicked in and bought a whole lot of Subway sandwiches and it dawned on someone at NBC that they didn't have any good shows on. So they decided to replace a whole hour's worth of viewing with a tired comedian and announced that "Chuck" would be coming back ... after the Oleolympics, and only for fourteen episodes.

EPISODE REVIEW: CHUCK: "Chuck vs. the Honeymooners" (Season 3, Episode 14)

Chuck and Sarah are on a train (not quite the Orient Express but something quite like that) going across Europe as they run away from being spies. But then Chuck flashes on a bad guy and Sarah happens to glimpse a gun on what she thinks is one of the man’s minion

[Warning: I write this review while sitting slope-side in Colorado, so I can't guarantee my ability to stay focused.]

Chuck got his first solo mission this past Monday night, much to the objection of Sarah and Casey.  But Shaw was determined to send Chuck on this mission and see if he had the makings of a "real" agent.

EPISODE REVIEW: Chuck: "Chuck vs. Operation Awesome" (season 3, episode 4)

This episode makes for a second out-of-the-park homerun in as many weeks for NBC’s show “Chuck”. [Note: as everyone who follows me on Facebook knows, my interest in football ended Sunday afternoon and I am now in baseball mode.]

Last week’s episode of “Chuck” left us with the impression that Captain Awesome had been killed. An impression that lasted about 120 seconds because the preview for this week’s ep showed him alive and walking around (the only weakness in last week’s episode as the cliffhanger ending could have been better served by previews that didn’t take the surprise away).

Chuck vs. the Three Words

To kick off the third season of "Chuck", NBC ran two episodes back-to-back. In the second episode, we learn that the reason Chuck ran out on his chance to be with Sarah was because he loved her. If that doesn’t make sense, wait. I may explain later (but, probably not).

Chuck vs. the Pink Slip

Suddenly, Chuck is back and he’s on a mission. But he’s suave and composed and, when he flashes, he kicks some bad-guy booty. But then, the escape falls flat because Chuck, we learn, can make himself flash. It only happens by accident. And then, it turns out this wasn't a real mission, but an elaborate training exercise.

So began the first episode of the third season of NBC’s “Chuck”.

Nikki Finke is reporting that "Chuck" is being renewed for the Fall 2009 season Since Nikki gets things right a whole lot more than wrong, we thought we'd make Burt Cottage's day and let you know.

NBC announces it's schedule today, so when it becomes official, we'll update the story.

Sam White's picture

When last we saw Chuck, he was escaping with Sarah because General Beckman had ordered the project terminated and the asset (Chuck) put under guard. This week started with (newly promoted to) Colonel John Casey going after Chuck and Sarah with orders to bring them back dead or alive.
