    I disagree! I really liked Scott Bakula in Quantum Leap. Granted Enterprise was different, but I still liked him. Seeing how he will only be in 2 or 3 episodes of Chuck, my money says it will be a great addition to the story.:up:

    Have to agree here. I don't know what I was expecting for Chuck and Ellie's father, but I know it wasn't this. I like SB and all, but his mannerisms are just off for the father of those two kids. The fact that their love for QL lead them to this decision rather than trying to cast the "character" also concerns me. But I am willing to be pleasantly surprised.

    His mannerisms?? Do you mean his ACTING abilities which obviously made you believe that he WAS the character he was simply PORTRAYING?

    I haven't seen Bakula in Enterprise, but I was a big fan of his acting abilities in Quantum Leap. In that series he had to portray his character portraying a different character in every episode. I was impressed with the flexibility of his mannerisms.

    Every actor has ticks and facial expressions that carry over from character to character. I notice that. It's rare for me to seperate the character from the actor. When the actor manages to portray a character where all I see is the character, kudos to him/her.

    Scott Bakula was Sam Beckett was Captain Archer. I like him, but yeah, I am thinking I will see him as Scott Bakula and not as the character. I just don't see someone like those characters being a father to Chuck and Elle. I may not be explaining myself very well, and I apologize. But like I said, I am willing to be surprised, I just don't think it was a good casting call.
