I love the second clip is better I like the debt on what they should call what they do Flash or Zoom either one is fine with me and I like how Chuck has flash and Morgan has Zoom.
Why is Sarah not in either of these? I do not comprehend.
Obviously because she is no longer on the show, duh.
I actually liked both clips. The first obviously because its Casey being Casey, but I enjoyed Chuck's melancholy in the second. If they keep him more on the wistful side and not a neurotic mess without the intersect, it could be interesting.I do have one nitpick though. That Carmicheal Industries sign was way too distracting. It kept pulling my eye away from Casey.
Sue- agreed with your point about Chuck's mood. I was worried about a whiny, Intersect-less Chuck this season, but Zen Chuck seems much better and more tolerable.
I don't know that there was much actual content in either clip, but it felt like Chuck and not some weirdly mutated Chuck-like thing. This is great from where I sit.JimP.S. Are comment approvals back? I'm picturing Magnus turning to the masses and saying, "You see! This is why we can't have nice things." He is, of course, wearing a house dress as he says this.
I am moderating comments again... for now.
And my reaction to the clips would be... this feels like CHUCK to me. Unlike the first episode of season 3 and even 4, that felt off to me.
I think the one clip with Sarah was the best...I mean sexy! Also I see a lot of people complaining but no one has complimented the writers for really giving the shippers everything in the first 3 episodes at least. I heard that there is a lot of affection (not just physical but emotional and sweet names) between them. Some say that there is so much that fans faces may fall off with all the smiling they will be doing! So relax people!
Shippers can all go frak themselves. Bunch of emo nutjobs. I want them to all cry and quit the show already.DIE SHIPPERS! DIE!
This storyline is what you get from Chuck only ever getting half seeason orders and that is it. Season 3 and 4 and 5 suffered or will suffer due to the writers not knowing when the end is or how much time they had or will have left. I mean if they had a chance in season 3 to slow burn some of the elements with a guaranteed 22 episode order…they could have explored via flashbacks Shaws character and his relationship with his wife (instead of a crappy romance with Sarah) they could have explored different ideas of Chucks background better. If the show had a guaranteed 4th season they could have spent 24 episodes on Sarah and her flashbacks to her life that gave meaning to the overall narrative and how it corresponds to mama b…they could have really dug into Sarah’s character and what makes her tick. If they had a full season 5 they could have explored Casey all season…what makes him tick, full of flashbacks…etc. These 3 seasons if full 22 episodes then they could have used them to tell great stories of Chuck, Sarah and Casey and how it is all about redemption in one way or another…they dug a great foundation (seasons 1 and 2) to do that laying but since they have been on borrowed time? they have had to blopw their load on half seasons and never ever had the chance to explore important things that fans would love to see. Now what happens when they only get 13 episode orders and have blown all their material? they have to mess around with the intersect mythology, they have to do stupid things like the grettas or stupid love triangles or other stuff that is useless. I do not say this to be negative…but that is the problem with network tv..cable shows just get out of the way of the show runners. The networks and studios give time and are not really ratings conscious and just let the show runner do their thing (that is why Mad Men and Breaking Bad and The Wire are considered the best shows in the world). Fringe suffers the same fate…I cannot even keep track of all their stories because they keep on changing stuff due to not knowing how much time they have. I mean the first 4 episodes of season 4 is just been exposition telling fans what mythology exists and what does not due to the ill thought out idea of dissappearing Peter and that is it…so, so, so poor. Chuck’s TPTB are not idiots, they are not disconnected with the fan base (totally) they just have to work with what they got…networks, studios, lack of time, lack of money, lack of everything that makes cable shows awesome. Morgansect is really them running on fumes to be honest. They will hopefully pull it off but that does not make up for some of the dissappointment. I am sure that they are just as dissappointed as us, but they are humans too, they have feellings and they have dissappointments and they know that this is not ideal…I have faith in them and I think they will do good in the end.
FYI if you watch the version of clip 3 at the end of the extended version of the Grimm promo on the NBC/Grimm website there is an extra minute or two at the beginning. You have to deal with the NBC player and ads though.
Magnus .. you teaser! It's you and Kurt Sutter.. you are cahoodeling! :o
Eh..Morgan...the zoom? What.... Whatever, I love Chuck and will still with it to the very end. No matter how lame the last..Yeah never mind I won't go on. Thanks for the sneak peeks! Dakota
Meant stick not still. Haha can't spell.Dakota
