frivilous

sometimes, you just need some down time. mental breathing room. time to do nothing ... on purpose. so last night, with my hubby out of town, i watched the premier of "chuck" on nbc...and it was AWESOME! it somehow avoided so many things that pilots get wrong - it was engaging, the characters were well drawn, the actor who plays Chuck was fantastic - he made Chuck genuine and believeable and cheer-on-able, the story was clear and didn't have a long "porch" (the introduction that goes on and on), it moved at a good pace, it made me laugh, and it made me miss it during the commercials...the only other show that does that is "house" (if you're not watching house, you should be! premier is tonight!) also, it's a nice change of pace from the "ensemble" shows - this story has only a couple of key players, and plenty of room to maneuver. all in all, a home run. i highly recommend it! and nbc is making the full episode available online, incase you missed it...
