A breakup (?) letter to Chuck

Dear Chuck,

(The TV show, not the titular character.)

(Hee. “Titular!”)

Dear Chuck,

Lately, I’ve been feeling like maybe we need some time apart. Sure, we had a pretty good run together. I’d leave work early to get home in time to watch you, and curse work for not paying me enough to be able to afford DVR and having to take a really short lunch break so I could leave early. But you know what? The sacrifice was worth it. You were so cute, with your pop culture geek references, and your espionage and your action sequences, and the way John Casey growled a lot.

Also, Ellie and Captain Awesome were there, and they hadn't had a baby yet.

And, yeah, I’ll admit it: I loved you. I loved you a lot. It made me happy to be with you.

But things have changed, Chuck (the TV show). And I’m just not feeling it anymore.

In fact, the other day, someone asked me when the new season begins … and I didn’t know. And worse? I didn’t particularly care.

And that’s when I knew, Chuck (not Bartowski, but the show he stars on). The magic is gone.

I mean, Morgan as the Intersect? Come on, show, really? And Chuck is married to Sarah? I mean, I was shipping them as hard as the next guy, but you end your series with a wedding. (Not that I blame you for not getting canceled after your fourth season. I mean, we all kind of expected it.)

Also, what was the deal with Morgan officiating the wedding? I totally thought it was a dream sequence, but I guess it wasn't?

And Casey? Well, Casey’s just not killing as many people as he used to do, and that makes me deeply, deeply sad.

He's much sexier as a cold-blooded killing machine, is all.

But I don’t want it to end like this, Chuck. I’ll give you a chance. I’ll watch your fifth season. I mean, sure, it’ll feel like that relationship where the one just doesn’t go away and the other is too lazy to make them, but hey! Lots of marriages work like that.

I’m just saying, Chuck, don’t be disappointed now that I’m seeing Fringe on Friday nights. I have a feeling we were meant to be.

Dear Fringe, I know YOU won't break my heart. I love you.

    I wonder if Chuck (the series) is up for an open relationship?

      Gosh, I hope so, or I’m going to feel like a dirty, dirty cheater.

    Season 5 is officially the final year… so I hope “Chuck” goes out on a high note.

    I love Chuck 🙂

      Good. This way the show will have someone to fall back on now that I’m (maybe) dumping it.

    […] In conclusion, it’s over. For reals this time. […]

    You should try watching psych. It’s about a hyperobservant Guy named Shawn who has to pretend to be a psychic in order to stay out of jail,and it’s hilarious. However, be warned, it’s kind of addicting. Like Smoothies.
