CHUCK: ‘Chuck Versus the Fear of Death’

November 15, 2010 by  
Filed under #1 featured, Chuck

Despite lacking both in ‘cliff’ and ‘hanger’, this week’s hour of CHUCK did serve as the first installment of a two-part episode which leaves the audience wondering whether Chuck Bartowski will find a way out of a harrying situation before he is lobotomized or killed. I’m gonna stop you right here and serve up a big old SPOILER ALERT – Chuck makes it out of this situation just fine.  In case you were really concerned, the titular character is going to live.  I hope I didn’t ruin the suspense for you. I’m such a buzzkill sometimes.

Not sure “Chuck vs. the Fear of Death” will go down as one of my favorite episodes of the series, but parts of it were entertaining enough that I certainly wouldn’t count this ep as one of the worst.

One thing you can say for sure about BONES star Michaela Conlin? She is an excellent tease.

In part 2 of Give Me My Remote‘s interview with Conlin (you can read part one here), we chatted about the “complicated” Brennan point of view episode which is set to air soon, the Brennan-Angela friendship, how much Angela really knows about Booth and Brennan’s relationship, plus what she thinks of the Hannah-Brennan friendship. And it sounds like things are about to get intense…

Monday’s episode of CASTLE brings Castle and Beckett into the unexplained…with alien abductions?!

Yep, CASTLE is getting its X-FILES on tonight when an astrophysicist’s body is found. Castle jokes that she was killed in outer space — and the evidence supports him.

The hour gets additional science fiction cred from guest star Lance Henriksen (the former star of MILLENNIUM), who plays an alien abduction expert. And Lyle Lovett — yes, that Lyle Lovett — has the CASTLE stars gushing over his appearance on the show.

Comments Off on NBC Midseason Shakeup: Has Your Favorite Show Been Moved? Plus, 30 ROCK Renewed!

It’s no secret NBC has had ratings struggles as of late, so it seems the network felt a major overhaul was in order.

One of the biggest changes? An all-comedy block on Thursday nights, featuring the return of PARKS AND RECREATION and moving 30 ROCK to 10 p.m. followed by OUTSOURCED at 10:30. In addition to its new time slot, 30 ROCK has been renewed for a sixth season.

As of now, new shows LOVE BITES, THE PAUL REISER SHOW and FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS are unscheduled.

Take a look at the brand spankin’ schedule, courtesy of NBC’s press release…
