"Chuck vs. the Sandworm"

Poor Chuck: he thought he found a kindred spirit. Instead, the guy turns out to be a psychotic weapons expert on the lam from his handlers. Go figure.Tonight Chuck discovered a rogue operative, Lazslo, in, of all places, a video arcade, where he and Morgan were having a video-game war. Lazslo made Chuck as an agent because of his watch (which Lazslo invented) and eventually won Chuck to his side by telling him the sad story of how he was kept in an underground facility since the tender age of 11, making high-tech gadgets and weaponry. The poor guy didn't even know about James Bond! Disgusted with Morgan's juvenile behavior, Chuck started to connect with Lazslo. That is, until the guy's twisted desire to blow things up came out. In the end Chuck learned how to disable the bomb and figure out who his real friends were.Once again Chuck ran into trust issues, and managed to get everything all wrong. He was too eager to believe Lazslo, probably because he saw a bit of himself in the guy.... read more

"Chuck vs. the Sizzling Shrimp"

So far Chuck has been pretty good about keeping his secret spy life from interfering too much with his regular life, but tonight the two collided, and his friends and family lost. Ironically it was Chuck's own personal code of trying to help everyone that got him in trouble. Talk about no good deed going unpunished! So how many different directions was Chuck being pulled in? Ellie wanted him to spend time with her and celebrate their special family "October Mother's Day," and Morgan wanted Chuck to help him with the sales contest. But Casey and Sarah needed him to check out a Chinese spy, who insisted Chuck help her rescue her brother after he botched her attempt (while being helpful to the wrong person, no less!). Chuck felt so bad about getting the intel wrong that he was compelled to help the spy... which pretty much messed up everything for everyone. He wasn't there for Morgan or Ellie, while Casey and Sarah got captured on the mission he forced them to take. Of course, he came... read more

"Chuck vs. The Wookiee"

I have to admit, ironically enough, that I can't wait for the weekend to be over so Monday night can roll around. The Chuck/Heroes one-two punch is a winning combination, and tonight's episode is a worthy addition to the series. So what was Chuck up to this time? He got involved with a diamond heist and a sexy, sneaky DEA agent. It was great to see Chuck using his own expertise (spotting all the security tech) instead of simply relying on the Intersect info in his head. Despite the lack of training in fieldwork, he didn't do too badly, slipping through the door before it sealed shut, navigating through the pool area... and throwing the plate at Corina when she tried to swipe the gem from him at his home. But he also got tripped up with his own insecurities (and thankfully it wasn't Morgan's fault this time!). Chuck had more trust issues to work out when he realized that even though he and Sarah did pretty well playing that game of guessing each other's answers, he really doesn't kno... read more

"Chuck vs. the Tango"

So, who out there wants to reach into the screen, grab Morgan by the neck and...? It seems tonight he was working overtime to make up for the lack of annoying behavior in last week's episode. And here I thought they were going to ease up on poor Morgan. I like the character, really I do! He just can't be used for every situation where something needs to go wrong! But wait, I am getting ahead of myself.... Instead of accidentally bumbling into a situation, Chuck was actually sent on his very first mission: The case involved a painting, plutonium and a dangerous arms dealer. Chuck literally framed himself while trying to act cool undercover, and under pressure, at the art auction; he really needs to learn how to keep his mouth shut. He ended up in the hands of a killer but managed to get away, mainly by demonstrating his incredible powers of computer repair to prove he was who he claimed to be, leaving Casey and Sarah to save the day, which they did with style. Despite the overuse o... read more

Chuck vs. The Helicopter

After that powerhouse pilot, I was a bit anxious the writing would not be able to hold up to that standard. This episode wasn't on the same level, but it had enough going for it that it was still a fun hour. I'll get the two not-so-fun moments out of the way first. The dinner party scene was almost painful to watch. I am not a big fan of awkward situational humor, so in that respect it was well done because it made me antsy. I was also a bit disappointed with the helicopter situation. Chuck should have figured out the computer-game angle on his own. Now for the good stuff, and there was plenty. The fight between Sarah and Casey was great. It was so over the top, but that's what made it so much fun to watch. She really handed him his butt, so his ego had to be bruised more than his body, which can clearly take a licking and keep on ticking. There was a good deal of humor based on Casey's tough guy status, such as chasing down the shoplifter, his stealth fighter comment and shrugging... read more

Exclusive: Josh Schwartz Teams Up with Everwood Alum

This just in: One of our favorite Everwood peeps, Sarah Lancaster, has nabbed the female lead in Josh Schwartz's much-buzzed-about NBC pilot Chuck, sources confirm. Lancaster joins Zachary Levi (Less Than Perfect), who's playing the title character — a computer geek who moonlights as a superhero. In other pilot cast news, did you hear who landed the co-female lead opposite Parker Posey in ASP's Fox comedy The Return of Jezebel James? If not, you might want to visit Matt Mitovich's ridonkulously comprehensive news blog. (Two words: Dream. Team.) read more

I have enjoyed Sarah ...

Question: I have enjoyed Sarah Lancaster's work on Everwood and What About Brian. But this year, after the wedding episode, she has completely disappeared from the series with no explanation. Her name is still in the opening credits. Will she ever appear in this show again? Will she be working in other TV shows or in feature films? Answer: From what I understand of what happened in that wedding episode, I would think that's explanation enough of why Marjorie left for a while. I think it's fair to say, without too much of a spoiler alert, that you haven't seen the last of Sarah Lancaster on the show. After all, she has stayed in the cast credits. When she does return, I can't say (nor would I, if I knew) how long she'll be sticking around ... read more

Exclusive: What About Brian's Back Nine?

This just in! A source close to ABC tells me that What About Brian has been picked up for the entire season. And the news gets even better for Brian fans (of which, I must confess, I am not one): I hear Sarah Lancaster was back on the set last week shooting an episode. Not sure how permanent her return is or what brings Marjorie back to town. In other (and much more exciting) back-nine news, I have it on good authority that NBC is thisclose to giving our beloved Friday Night Lights a full-season pickup. [The crowd roars] read more

October 9, 2006: "Marriage Is Kind of Like a Dirty Coffee Mug...."

We didn't need a voice-over (all my respect to Meredith Grey) to spell out the symbolism cutting through this episode, and I'm feeling everyone's in for a rocky road (check out my interview with Rick Gomez for more). But it's all about second chances, right?Side note: I know it's supposed to be about Brian (Barry Watson), but can I just say that Dave (Rick Gomez) is the one who has me watching? The quiet guy. The guy who had the real thing and wants it back. The guy who calls his wife in the middle of a bachelor party. And I'm sure if she asked him to, he'd keep those fuzzy red handcuffs around his wrists for days, despite the embarrassment, if it meant helping his marriage. Handcuffs aside, everyone's hoping for another crack at happiness in this opener....Nic's (Rosanna Arquette) worry about pending motherhood is hovering over any baby joy she should be feeling. Deena (Amanda Detmer) tries to rediscover the romance she and Dave once had. Marjorie (Sarah Lancaster) visits a psychic... read more
