Monday TV

Chuck: Still walking the thin line between funny and ridiculous, and doing it well. I should add that, if our country's intelligence agencies are really run as portrayed here, we should all be very concerned. We have the CIA and NSA basically fighting over who gets possession of the secrets in Chuck's head. And they're not too good at blending into their, er, cover jobs. Entertaining, yes. Believable, NO. (ADDENDUM: Not believable in other ways, too)

Heroes: Slow, dark and odd. The most interesting story lines are the ones where multiple "heroic" characters are interacting. Okay, the ancient Japan one is probably the VERY best one. It's the old "meet your hero; get disillusioned; turn him into a real hero" gag, but done rather well. ^/^
