Matt's Weekend Picks: December 10-12

The Good Guys - Colin Hanks, Bradley Whitford

The Good Guys (Friday, 9/8c, Fox)
Not a great week for quirky crime-fighters. First FX gives the wonderful Terriers the boot, and now we come to the end of the line for Fox's genial but low-rated buddy-cop spoof. We will miss Bradley Whitford as gone-to-seed Dallas detective Don Stack, especially his bushy 'stache. The final episode brings back Gary Cole as Stark's legendary former partner, Frank Savage, and we also meet the ex-partner of Stark's sidekick Jack Bailey (Colin Hanks). Jack's former partner, played by American Pie's Chris Klein, has done well, now the assistant chief of the department, called in when a Mafia informant is murdered and a dirty cop is suspected. Surely not... read more

Ask Matt: Chuck, The Event, Glee, NCIS, Bones and More!

Questions: A couple of questions on NBC's Monday night lineup. First, what has your opinion been on Chuck this year? I never thought I would say this, but I find myself wishing they had tied up everything last year, when I thought Chuck was at an all-time high in quality. This season has seemed extremely uneven and uninspired to me, with the usually unbearable Buy More plotlines made even worse by the fact that there isn't a whole lot going on in the A-plot week to week either. Your thoughts?

Secondly, I have been enjoying The Event a great deal, but find myself not caring at all whenever the scene shifts to Sean and Leila. Everything they are involved in just seems so small and trite compared to the big conspiracy storyline, and I also don't find myself impressed by those actors' performances. I understand that since Lost and the brilliant work that show did with its characters, all of these high-concept shows have tried to incorporate the everyday hero to resonate with viewers, but the difference there (other than character portrayal) is that those heroes were thrust into the meat of the plot, rather than being relegated to the side plots we have seen in The Event. I just find myself thinking ... read more
