Some Old School Superman Invades "Chuck"

The guest casting of Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) and Kristen Kreuk (“Smallville”) on “Chuck” finally makes some sense now. It gives NBC a chance, with the return of the “Chuck” on Monday, to bring us this new promo, inspired by the old Superman openings.

It’s 47 different flavors of cool.

I’ve not been amazed with this season of “Chuck,” so far — the Chuck and Sarah love-interest plotline is starting to fizzle and feel a lot like Ross and Rachel, though the spy stories have been holding up well, despite the fact that “Chuck” isn’t really the bad-ass that pre-season promos suggested. It’s still a great show, though. The heart-tugging plotline just isn’t as strong.

But, you know: Anything to keep Adam Baldwin working (though, never follow his Twitter account — never, ever, ever follow his Twitter. Dude’s the wackjob crazy right-wing nutjob you’d expect his characters to be, and he has no problems sharing his politics, no matter how many fans he alienates).
