Nicole Richie. Three episodes into the season and we've gone from Larroquette to Strahan to this? What's up next, week one Idol rejects?

This ep deserves an Emmy for special make-up effects.

"Smack My Bitch Up" is a song I never thought I would hear on a network prime time show.

"Mad Dog"

What a great episode. Although, is this the first time that Chuck has falsely flashed on someone?

Where was Anna this episode? There was some other female Asian employee at the Buy More.

This was a pretty funny episode.

I guess this is kind of spoilerish... for those who don't watch previews

Spoiler:
Who was that playing Chuck's ex in the preview? It wasn't Bilson, but she definitely looked familiar. Not on IMDB yet

as for the ep, not bad... Also nice to see a show step away from the lame story line of some past nerdy chick, who is now really hot, is not seen as really hot by her old classmates.

being so many shows try to play off those sort of store lines as if everyone around the ex-nerd turned hottie is totally blind to the fact that the other person is now really good looking..

I think I like Sarah's Orange Orange uniform more than the Weinerlicious one, probably because of the tight top.

I didn't know her name, but as soon as I saw her I recognized her from Fast & Furious.



Oh, and to the fight scene in the girl's shower.

The only part that bugged me is that when Sarah was crowned reunion queen, nobody seemed to notice that she was all wet and bloody.

The shower scene would have been much better if she wasn't fighting a walking skeleton. I won't say Richie sucked. She wasn't horrible, nor did she bring anything to the roll. Worst of all she took the space that an actual hottie/talented actress could have filled.

The episode itself was pretty good. Nice to see some character development and background on Sarah.

Richie's scrawny ass was not believable as someone who could throw down w/ Sarah/Jenny/etc...

Almost had a Carrie vibe to it for me.

Did no one catch the biggest joke? She was named "Heather Chandler" - as in Heather #1 in Heathers.

It wasn't a false flash - the guy was involved in the Russian black market, he just wasn't one of the assassins.


The scene of Yvonne working the heavy bag -

Not to mention Ben Savage's character "Mark Ratner" -- as in Fast Times at Ridgement High.

It wasn't a "false" flash. Chuck sometimes assumes facts not in evidence. It's not the first time but it helps keeps things moving along.

Good episode, but I worry about it becoming the Love Boat where they look for pointless guest stars that just suck. JL was great, so more of something like that would be fine.
