Diffuse the Bomb!

I wish I could link to this, but the WashPost is showing last week's articles for their TV Week. This week they had short bits on new shows and for Chuck, one of the "Things You Won't Like" is that he can "diffuse a bomb in seconds." I dunno, most bombs diffuse in seconds.



Okay, clearly a typo for defuse, but we do see bombs defused in seconds on lots of shows -- they don't happen in real time, after all -- so I don't think that's actually a bad thing about Chuck. I'll watch it tomorrow and see how it goes.
