"Chuck"

OK, I don't think I've ever mentioned here that we watch "Chuck". It's one of the TV shows we watch. I like the show. I like the characters. I like the script. I like how the characters develop, especially...well, Chuck. I like how Yvonne Strahovski who plays Sarah Walker is believable as a spy – she's pretty enough without being overwhelmingly gorgeous (it's the teeth). She looks like she can really kick major butt. I thought the show rocked some more when they added my "boyfriend"/Superman Brandon Routh as Shaw.

That's why I find it horrible that it's still not sure if "Chuck" is getting picked up for another season.

Good shows get canceled left and right, while crappy ones hang around.

There's a clear shortage of good TV shows. All we keep seeing nowadays are endless "reality" TV shows that hardly depict reality. The type of shows that makes me think, if we base it on the characters and bozos shown in those shows, then the end of the world is at hand. These shows showcase people who are constantly screaming their heads off, pulling hair and clothes off one another, walking around and falling on the ground in a drunken stupor.

Is that good TV, really? How low can television programming go? Sometimes I think it couldn't sink no lower, and then I stumble upon a show that proves me wrong.

As a broadcast communication graduate, I should probably hang my head in shame. I could've gone in that direction and exerted some sort of influence. But really? Either that would've happened or I would've been dragged into the mud.
