I have been holding my breath for weeks now about Chuck, and I am so glad to see things are looking up for this show. Also very very glad Big Bang Theory has been picked up for at least another two seasons – I am completely addicted to these geeks.

Why am I disappointed that Smallville has been renewed? Well, let’s see. We are going onto season 9 now of a show that started off really awesome and then morphed into a badly written soap. I cannot believe this drivel is being continued while good shows keep getting the axe.
