What I'm Watching: Chuck

Chuck: Season 2, Episode 4 "Chuck Versus the Cougars" (B)

Ben Savage! From "Boy Meets World," it's Cory! I suppose it's a bit strange that I'm more excited about that than Nicole Ritchie's highly-touted guest spot as the girl who made Sarah's life in high school hell, but maybe that's because Savage is actually an actor. I couldn't believe that Savage was old enough to be playing that role, but I checked it out on IMDB and it turns out that Mr. Savage and Mr. Levi are in fact the same age, both 28. Hard to believe, but I guess "Boy Meets World" did in fact premiere 15 years ago when Savage was in fact 15. Anyway, he's sadly underused here in favor of the untalented Nicole Ritchie. It is cool to see Sarah's reactions to her past, and I look forward to more such revelations. Chuck's reactions to wanting to know about her past are great too. In the continuing attempt to incorporate the Buy More into the show, this latest effort is actually sort of funny, offering ridiculous discounts on everything that having a ripper which goes virtually unnoticed save for that one falling fish.
