Chuck: The recap

The premise: Nerd Herd-er Chuck accidentally downloads the government's secrets and two agents are sent to protect him.
Chaos ensues and it makes us viewers very, very happy.

Tonight: Chuck learns a lesson in trust. Trusting Sarah: Good. Trusting Casey: Bad, very bad. While this episode wasn't as great as the first episode it still was pretty darn good.

We learn that a government doctor might be able to extract the secrets the Chuck holds in his brain. We know he won't be successful because it would end the show would it not? And it'd make us all very, very unhappy.

Chuck clearly is in love with Sarah and she's falling for him but Casey keeps putting these not so trusting thoughts in his head and that's bad, very bad.

Meanwhile Ellie is ticked because Chuck's nerdy, slacker friend has met Sarah and she hasn't. (Note to the hairstylist: please do something about Sarah Lancaster's bangs because they are sooo not attractive)

I'm hoping that this show can continue with this mix of action, comedy and drama because it could be one of the shining stars of the season.

Episode grade: B

Heroes: The recap

After a ho-hum last episode this episode picked up a little steam. I'm not ready to do backflips just yet but I'm more excited than last year.

Here's were we are: Peter is slowly getting his powers back and looks as if he's falling in love with a lovely Irish lass. HIro is still stuck in the past and learns that Tenze has powers too (like Claire's). Could he be her ancestor???

Claire has decided that she's going to test her powers by CUTTING.OFF. HER. LITTLE. TOE!! EWWW gross! (Do NOT try this at home!) Unfortunately, creepy/stalker Wes saw her do it and promptly flew away. I'm calling it: Wes is secretly EVIL!!!

The not so Wonder Twins display their powers: Maya apparently can kill people when she gets too panicked while Alejandro apparently is the cure to her blackness. (GAWD, is this like the dumbest power yet?) I don't give a flying fig about them.

Over at 3M (Mohinder, Matt and Molly's) the actress known as Molly gets the easiest paycheck ever as she sleeps, Matt is exhausted after protecting Mama Petrelli from the evil that is stalking the old heroes. And Mohinder helps the Haitian reunite with Noah.

My question: When's Kristen Bell coming? What's going on with DL. Nikki/Jessica and Micah?
