    • Intelligence is just a CBS rip off of Chuck

      Comment by Heather – January 7, 2014 06:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Funny how they fail to mention that they ripped off Chuck, when they are interviewed about their “original idea” huh?

        Comment by Pat – January 7, 2014 06:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I hope not, I hated Chuck. But even so I’m willing to give the show a chance and not judge it based on it’s cover. I’m kind of open minded like that.

            Comment by wrstlgirl – January 7, 2014 03:14 PM PDT  
      • That is true, but Chuck is essentially Jake 2.0 from UPN as well, there are very few ideas that have yet to be explored on pop culture.

        • Oh man I remember Jake 2.0 with Auggie from Covert Affairs.
