Chuck Series Look-Back:
    Saying Chuck might have been one of the greatest TV shows of all time was a bit of an understatement. It was easily one of my favorites and it's series finale this week punctuated what a surprise the whole show turned out to be, namely the fact that it even had a series finale to begin with. Constantly on the verge of cancellation, Chuck really was, in the words of show co-creator Chris Fedak, "Saved by sandwiches". The five season of Chuck we were able to enjoy happily was all thanks in part to Subway and there delisious sandwiches. The fact that we get to see a series finale is a bittersweet victory. Sure the show's over, but at least it ended on our terms. Sure, this final season had it's misses, but the finale took us back to a much simpler time. If I didn't know any better, these episode could have easily been from the first season. But, as a series finale, it was more than we could have ever asked for. Sure, we wanted to see Chuck and Sarah ride off into the sunset, with a baby in tow, but this was (to use a cliche) the ending we need, not the one we wanted. Goodbye Chuck. You will be missed.

TV News: 
- Kim Kardashian will have a recurring guest-starring role on Drop Dead Diva. I'm just gonna let that one go.

- Ferris Bueller may make his triumphant return... in a Super Bowl commercial. Hooray?

- Dwight might get his own show on NBC. That just seems like a bad idea.

See you later
