Chuck: Chuck Versus The Nemesis

(S01E10) "Pineapple." So last week was the big bomb buster. Sarah kissed Chuck, Bryce came back from the dead, Morgan got a girl to touch him... pretty crazy stuff. Now, we get to see the aftermath of Chuck-nobyl and what it means for the future of Team Bartowski....

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Imported Hard Salami

(S01E09) "Relax, It's dating in L.A. ... everyone lies" - Casey So, if you saw this episode last night, you must be freaking out right now. If you happen to be passing by this review on the TVSquad front page, I won't ruin it for you, but you need to be watching Chuck. It is really one of the few shows I truly look forward to and it will be the one I miss the most if this strike continues for muc...

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Truth

(S01E08) "Huh ... Tiniest cop I've ever seen." - El Capitan Awesome. So I guess the writers are going to try out this little whole, entire let's-actually-have-a-continuous-plot thing they implemented last week with the revealing episode on Chuck's back story. Although it is good that they are trying to create a new arc (involving guest star Rachel Bilson), I think it is kind of short sighted to n...

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Alma Mater

(S01E07) "What? Slingshots too ineffective?" - Chuck Oh it is good to be back after a week of absence! I know you guys missed me so much, but I think that Will O'Brien did a great job with his review of last week's episode. One note from last week's episode that Will didn't cover... Captain Awesome's name is Devon? I had to rewind the video three times just to make sure. What a lame name (no of...

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Sizzling Shrimp

(S01E05) "This is the part where we hide" - Chuck I am still on the fence about Chuck and this episode does not do anything to knock me off in one direction or the other. It is still a humorous, character-driven show that isn't too messy or overwrought, but at the same time it seems to have no continuing plot that makes me want to keep with the show. Everything manages to tie up neatly at the end...

Heroes: Fight or Flight

(S02E05) "The moment you trust them with what you care about most, they'll have you." - HRG For some reason I feel a little short changed by this episode of Heroes. Yes, there were plenty of twists and turns and moments of... "Wait! What the heck just happened," but I still feel that not enough progressed in the storylines I care about (mainly Hiro, Peter, HRG, and Sylar). There was just enough...

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Wookie

(S01E04) "I thought you were supposed to be good at lying" - Chuck So it was another satisfying episode of Chuck, funny, hip, referential. They still haven't worked out all the kinks in the show yet, but for the most part the structure and humor of the show is beginning to really solidify, giving us something that might last beyond a season. "Chuck Versus the Wookie" introduced us to red-haired,...

Heroes: The Kindness of Strangers

(S02E04) "Oh Golly" - Sylar, grade A meanie. I really want to thank all you guys who sent in such positive feedback on the new format for Heroes reviewcaps. JJ is going to follow a similar structure, as he displayed last week, so we can have some consistency from week to week, episode to episode. The above quote was one of the single most hilarious moments ever on Heroes, which is usually suffer...

Chuck: Chuck Versus the Tango

(S01E03) "Now that's what I call moving some merchandise." - John Casey If you've already seen the episode, which I assume you have, you'll know the quote above comes at a very tense point in the show. The writers had two ways to go: have Casey say something very serious or have him say something so ridiculous it counters the "bad-ass"-ness of the previous scene (i.e. a microwave straight to a th...

Heroes: Lizards

(S02E02) "Have you seen a scary white man?" - Hiro Nakamura, time traveler. Last week at TV Squad we had a big discussion on how to handle our "reviewcaps," the episodes of the big shows that we both provide a plot summary and review of. It seemed that we were getting a lot of very detailed plot descriptions, but not enough review. These special posts seem to go on and ramble on forever and there...
