The Battle of the AGs just got really interesting.
Up until now, Chuck’s rivalry with Jock Jeffcoat never came close to the level of contentiousness that made his conflict with Axe in previous seasons so compelling. But the decision to throw both Charles Senior and Wendy to the wolves in order to avoid capitulating to Jock, while hardly surprising, has succeeded in turning me into a popcorn-chomping spectator of this story line.
Putting his ego over his family is a classic Chuck move, but since none of the maneuvers he executes in “American Champion” had a chance in hell of panning out anyway, the viewer’s enjoyment lies in watching Chuck dig himself into a hole.
