DC had an HD/16x9/5.1 mix version (nice 5.1, by the way). KNBC should have aired the HD version. Maybe you mis-tuned to the SD feed or something?

Hokey, dumb show. Won't last. Season pass cancelled after one episode.

I liked it. I disagree about the lack of comedic timing for chuck... the wife and I thought that his timing was similar to Ryan Reynolds but with less sarcasm. I appreciated the underware shots as well.

It was hidef in Milwaukee, although my guide said it wasn't.

From a show perspective, obvious plot holes, silly and at the beginning I was not sure about it, but in the end it grab us. We'll watch it next week.

I'll give it another chance next week, if for no other reason than Yvonne Strzechowski is burned into my brain. Wow.

i mean the episode was meh, the problem is this kind of show never lasts. It is supposed to be funny but turns out to be more of the same every week.

Shows like Burn Notice and others are good because its serious with some funny.

IMO

Here in Albuquerque our network affiliates spend too much time eating red and green chiles to pay attention to network feeds. Our NBC affiliate is probably the worst missing the HD markers from network all the time. Because of this I wont be watching chuck since I gave up after the second commercial break on no HD. Luckily KKOB woke up in time for heroes and journeyman.

Sad thing is KRQE is our CBS affiliate who never has problems and is asking for a carriage fee, and thus is only available in HD OTA. We get what we pay for apparently.

I like it. It's amiable. Compare with Big Bang Theory (low brow and heavy handed) it's comic gold. and the girl is cute. I'll be back.

I do agree the premise may be limited. Something like this probably works much better as a 2 hr movie. We'll see.

This show looked great in HiDef, although I hate, hate the snipes that preview the upcoming shows at the beginning of each return from commercial break.

But looking good isn't enough.

I mean, really....

I guess I just didn't get it. All that hype and this is what we got? Frankly, I miss Studio 60, compared to this stuff.

It isn't funny enough to be a comedy. It isn't serious enough to be a drama. It isn't realistic enough to be a thriller. A it isn't smart enough to be a satire.

I just don't like it.

I thought it was excellent; certainly had my son, (16), and me laughing multiple times. Season pass set-up.

BTW: HD here but guide didn't show it.

I really enjoyed this episode, but I don't know how it'll hold up for a whole season or more. (I mean, doen't the info in his head become less and less useful over time?) The whole concept sounds like it would've worked better as a feature film.

I'll be coming back for more... and having Yvonne Strzechowski and Julia Ling in the cast definitely doesn't hurt.

the show was alright, and while i'd like it to succeed (most shows take a few episodes to get into the swing of things - look at The Office and Heroes), I don't think this one has that special hook that sets it apart. This is a 6-and-outer at worst, and at *best* a 1 season show.

Well it seems as though some got the feed in HD and others didn't. What's the excuse, Heroes and Jouneyman were presented in HD.

I enjoyed it more than I thought I would (actually giggled a few times).

I think the only reason I even tuned in was because of the constant promotion of it that NBC had been airing for the past few weeks.

Agree with others that this one won't last long. It seemed more like a movie, than a serial television show. Over time it will be hard to keep the plot line semi-believable. I'm also guessing the explosions / car chases make it fairly expensive to produce.

Yvonne however (yowza!), has likely received a lot of attention and has set her self up for a lot more parts in TV and movies.

The game was "Call of Duty"

Pretty sure NBC is repeating Chuck on Saturday.

My guide is showing Heroes at 8:00, Bionic Woman at 9:00 and L&O:SVU at 10:00. I'm sure it's subject to change, but that's what it's showing right now.

The 1st half of exposition (necessary) to setup the 2nd half was a little slow. But it definitely got better in the 2nd half and - like everyone else, I'll throw in an additional Yowsa! for Yvonne/Sarah. That is one gorgeous hunk of lady. I'll be back for more of both (the show and her).

If you want to see what was probably her most/best revealing and appealing scene -

I'm predicting it'll last....one season, anyways. The shows that don't grab me always make it.

Guess he won't have much real time info available in future episodes though.

I liked it a lot. It was silly but smart. Maybe it won't run for seven years, but if they can keep the pop references, the lingerie scenes, and the tongue-in-cheek action, I'll watch.

From this day forward every big box store I mention in any context will be referred to as LargeMart.

Did anyone notice that the bomb's timer stopped at 0000000:07 a la Goldfinger?

I liked the pilot. I'll definitely be back next week since it was silly and had some funny moments.
