The 100th episode of Bones is coming up in just a bit, but before that, a look back at this week's Chuck non-finale. (The episode was originally intended to be the season finale, but NBC ended up ordering six more episodes. Yay for more Chuck!) The short version? It was awesome.

And this is the part with the spoilers )

There's still no word yet whether Chuck will be renewed for a fourth season, but I really hope it is. If you're not already, you really should WATCH CHUCK! Supposedly the beginning of the next arc (on April 26) will be a good point for new people to jump in. Doooo it.

PSA: Warning, there are Bones spoilers in the comments.

Chuck!

I've thus far neglected to mention my newest awesome TV discovery. Okay, technically that's curling... so my almost newest new favorite: Chuck.

I had heard several positive endorsements of the show, including from my brother, who has a similar sense of humor, then I caught part of a marathon on Sci-Fi one weekend, and decided I needed to get it from Netflix. During the recent Snowmageddon I watched the entire second season then caught up with the third on Hulu. I quickly learned that Chuck isn't just "that show with Jayne from Firefly." It's action-packed and really funny, has a fantastic cast, and features excellent music to boot.

For those unfamiliar with the show, here it is in a nutshell: Chuck Bartowski is a computer technician at a Buy More electronics store whose life changes when he downloads a secret government computer, the Intersect, into his brain, e-mailed to him from his college roommate and nemesis, rogue CIA agent Bryce Larkin. Enter Major John Casey of the NSA and Agent Sarah Walker of the CIA, who poses as Chuck's girlfriend. Spy hijinks ensue, while Chuck tries to hide his new secret life from his big sister Ellie, her boyfriend "Captain Awesome," and his best buddy Morgan. There's a continuing storyline to the show, but since each episode features a new mission, it's also really watchable out of continuity. (So you should all watch, natch!)

Spoilery things under the cut )

Chuck come back tomorrow, and it looks like the upcoming episodes are going to be, well, awesome!


Sadly, I have class tomorrow night until 9 p.m. (ewww) so I won't be able to watch until Tuesday. Thank goodness for Hulu!

I've read a variety of reactions to the Battlestar Galactica finale, but I wholeheartedly loved it. Sure, there were a few moments that made me go "huh?", but overall it was an amazing finish to one of the best shows on television. I can't believe it's all over now! :(

Warning: lengthy ramblings accompanied by massive spoilers. But I least I break it up with pretty pictures! )

Would that I could write responses to my archives reading as easily as I can write about BSG…

First, although I'm working my way through some Classic Who, I'd yet to meet either UNIT or the Sontarans prior to this episode, so I really can't compare any of that. Second, wooooo!! Fantastic episode!

In which I ramble incessantly and fangirl Donna like it's my job. )

So I meant to post reactions to each new episode of Battlestar Galactica, but never got around to it. I think that before I have a chance to really digest what went on Doctor Who comes on, and I get distracted. Instead, I’m going to do some highlights and some “what the frak” moments.

I don't actually think Baltar is a cylon, but he is a tool. The only time I like him is when he's a hallucination, so that doesn't really count. Laura Roslin FTW!

And about the Season 2 cliffhanger ending... OMGWTFBBQ!!! Why is Season 3 not available on DVD yet?
alexiscartwheel: (rose)
Last night I finished the second season of Doctor Who, and I've just gotta say... wow. For the sake of spoilers, I'll put my thoughts under a cut. (Seriously, [profile] d4ni, watch it. You'll love it.)
