  • A disappointing second season premiere

    This was one of my favorite shows last year, but the first episode of Season 2 was a disappointment. I expected new storylines and some freshness going into the second season, but nothing had changed. While it was predictable that Chuck would not be free of being in the Intersect (since that is the premise of the show), it doesn't mean the writers need to keep every aspect of his life the same in this new season. Chuck still does not know that he was ordered to be killed, and everyone in his regular life is still ignorant about his secret agent status. He is still working in the exact same capacity at Buy More, not even moving onto Assistant Manager, which at least would have been a change. This episode did have its bright spots but the overall writing was a letdown. I'm hoping the next episode will bring new things while continuing to make us feel for Chuck, which is one aspect of the show that still remained intact in this episode.
