Glad to hear some CHUCK-love on BitD, as that's my favorite show on TV now. I'm a spy-nut, and I loved 24 and ALIAS, but I think there's a dram-edic thread of heart that makes CHUCK a new classic. Funnier than anything on THE OFFICE, yet with underlying adventures that are more satisfying that what you have on BURN NOTICE, where the civilian-in-peril story-lines distract from the main characters who are more interesting.
BUT, okay I have to provide the dissenting opinion on Yvonne Stahowski. Whenever I watch her I marvel at how perfectly proportioned she is! Her limbs are complete perfection! (And she is over five-nine.) Plus she's great in all her fights scenes. It's hilarious to watch Gabrielle Anwar (a good actress) but laughable in her action scenes -- she runs like a girl.

ALIAS was another TV spy show I just didn't get. BURN NOTICE is more my speed as that's one of the few shows I watch when it actually airs and don't wait to watch it on my DVR.
And I'm also in love with COVERT AFFAIRS which stars the wonderfully named Piper Perabo.
Agreed about PP. I wish the stories on COVERT were grittier, but I like that they're more and more starting to let Piper be Piper. (But stop trying to convince us Canada is D.C. each week.)
Speaking of Spy-TV, I'm still plugging away at THREE DAYS OF THE PARALLAX -- I mean RUBICON! -- even though I'm really starting to resent having been sucked into this black hole of dramatic inertia. It's become a complete chore...
