Hello friends. Yes, it really is me, amyabn, with some thoughts on how lucky all of you really are. Lucky, you say? Yes, and I mean it sincerely, because you have access to something I want: episodes of Chuck. And I am jealous!
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. I believe the sentiment to be true. I miss the weekly adventures of Team Bartowski. I miss the relationships that are so central to the show. These characters are becoming more fully realized and intricate, with flaws, fears, and dreams like the rest of us. I miss laughing at some stupid thing Morgan says, Sarah kicking ass, Chuck being, well, Chuck, Sarah and Chuck doing anything together, Casey and his quips. I miss the Volkoff storyline and hope that it is better fleshed out than some of our previous nemesis were <cough like the Ring cough>. I like the parallels being drawn of Stephen and Mary, Chuck and Sarah and the exploration of choices made and sacrifices realized. I miss family events with Ellie and Awesome, Alex, Morgan, Casey, Chuck and Sarah. I miss Awesome struggling to be awesome.
I miss the interaction with all of you, here, too. The thoughtful arguments, the intelligent point-counterpoint that I think we do well.
From what I’m able to read (when I get to read it), it sounds to me like the show is getting back to the things I fell in love with, which is all the things I miss outlined above. Count your blessings, friends. In the big scheme of life, missing Chuck isn’t the end of the world, but seeing it sure would make my day. Enjoy your days and enjoy the show.
