'Kay lets get one thing straight from the start I'm not going to attempt to review every damn thing that I watch as that would be ridiculous. Could you imagine me trying to write reviews for Brothers and Sisters, Ashes To Ashes, Chuck, Heroes, Castle, How I Met Your Mother, The Big Bang Theory, House, Reaper, Fringe, Bones, The Mentalist, Supernatural and Pushing Daisies. That would be just ridiculous. And that doesn't even factor in that I'm trying to catch up with Samantha Who and Prison Break. What I am going to do is write a review of episodes of a thing where it's the season finale. Because they're always the best one anyway. So with that in mind I've got two reviews that are going to kick of this brand new season of Reviews. Chuck and Heroes. Chuck first because Chuck was like ten times more awesome than Heroes.

Due to living in a different country when it comes to watching the latest episodes of my favourite programs I can more or less watch them in whatever order I like, i.e. I don't have to watch one thing to avoid clashes with another thing or whatever. It used to be at the start of this season that I used to watch Heroes before Chuck (blatantly defying the laws of time and space that dictated that Chuck should be first as it aired first) and I used to do this because I was more excited by the prospect of Heroes than I was by Chuck. However as the season has progressed the balance of excitement has reversed itself and so last night at some ridiculous time in the morning I was engrossed in the season finale of Chuck. And let me say it was immense. In fact it was so packed full of stuff that by the time that Chuck had ruined Ellie's first wedding I thought we were more or less at the end of the episode and from then on it just kept coming, packing more into 45 minutes than I thought was humanly possible. Chuck and Sarah almost settling down into a loving relationship of normal bliss. Chuck's dad has an intersect in his head. Fulcrum are just part of the problem. Bryce is dead again. Chuck has the Intersect back in his head again and the jaw dropping climax of the episode where Chuck knows kung fu. This is one of the utter best season finales of anything ever. Even without Chuck's new and improved intersect this would be one of the best season finales of anything I've ever seen but with that it rose to a whole new level. Oh and lets not forget that Awesome now knows that Chuck is a spy. There's not really been much done with that yet, there hasn't been the time, but I'm seriously looking forward to seeing what comes of that. Chuck is seriously one of the best things on TV at the moment and although this season ended just over a day ago I can't wait for season three. I refuse to even entertain the possibility that it might get cancelled. A show that's just produced an episode of that quality cannot be cancelled. It is against the fundamental laws of the universe. Fact. In summary this episode has to rank as FLAWLESS. Seriously. This episode was perfect.

p.s. don't even think that I'm going to tag all of those tv shows I mentioned at the start.
