It’s that time of year again, when desperate fans start taking desperate measures to save their favorite shows. (See: peanuts, lots of.) Supporters of NBC’s criminally underwatched not-quite-a-spy series Chuck have started a Facebook campaign declaring their intentions to buy Subway sandwiches on Monday — the hoagie franchise has a placement deal with the show — giving creator Josh Schwartz hope for a third season.
Me? I like Chuck. I’m happy to grab a Cold Cut Combo next week if it helps the cause. Not sure it has a shot in hell at renewal, but I encourage everyone out there in PopWatch land to give the show one more shot before you write it off for dead. I know what you’re thinking: Ugh, NO. It’s just another will-they-or-won’t-they plotline that’s gonna drag out forever, and we get enough of that on Bones. Hey! Look! At the below video! THEY HOOKED UP ALREADY! (And to a Bon Iver song, no less!) It’s safe for the excessive-shipping-averse to return. And in all seriousness, the last few eps have been pretty rock solid.
But what do you think, PopWatchers? Can/should this show be saved? And what footlong will you get to show your love?
