Chuck -- "Chuck Versus The Truth" -- 11/12/07

"Chuck Versus the Truth"
Spoiler:
Chuck must learn to balance a real love life with his cover love life when he meets a charming young woman by the name of Lou (Rachel Bilson). At the same time, his relationship with Sarah gets interesting when the duo must explain their sexual relations with Ellie and Captain Awesome on a double date. Meanwhile, there is trouble when someone is using "truth" poison in order to retrieve codes for nuclear facilities.

First Aired: Monday November 12, 2007

Really looking forward to this episode. This show is riding to the top of my must watch list each week. Each episode seems to be getting better and better.

I'm really excited to see Rachel Bilson tonight. Heard she will guest star on at least 2 episodes.

Not so sure on Rachel Bilson. I don't think that she'll add anything to the show.

I still get that She Spies vibe during the action and chase scenes.

Sarah and the Pentathol, ain't that the truth. Can't blame Chuck for wanting to get with Lou if Sarah sticks with her professional story.

"Lady Tang".

Pretty good episode. It was funny seeing Giftshop Girl going a little wacky.

Hearing about the boss banging Tang's wife made me feel real bad for him. I know he's supposed to be a dick and all but that just rubbed me the wrong way.

*knock knock*
bad guy: "who is it?"
Chuck: "the nsa, the cia and me!"


I know that's not really how pentathol works but still pretty funny.. Rachel Bilson was sort of wasted on the show, she just sort of popped in and out.. Then again, she is cute so better to see her in a small role then not at all..

I enjoyed this episode a lot. As soon as Sarah said that there would never be anything between she and Chuck for real, I had the feeling that wasn't quite the truth. (The show wouldn't be anything without that underlying tension.)

I can't wait to see next week and if, predictably, Lou is a plant or rogue agent or something.

Kind of shocked to see Tang out of things so quickly. (Unless it's just for the time being and they figure out a way back into it.) I really did think that part of it was a rather stupid plot line, though. Like they wouldn't have any other security measures so that type of thing DIDN'T happen. And the solution seemed seriously lacking in logic as well.

Overall, though, still a good episode. This show quickly has grown into a must see.

They better bring back Harry Tang, dammit! I just can't buy Lester as the potential new nemesis if Tang is really gone forever.

I really enjoyed this episode. This show has not missed a step since the pilot. Now I'm very curious to see how Chuck and Sarah's relationship evolves now that she obviously has secret feelings for him. I didn't think Rachel Bilson was wasted at all. The episode just set things up for her and Chuck.....however she is only scheduled to appear in 2 episodes, so next week is probably her last appearance for the time being. I don't think she's as hot as Sarah, but she is damn cute.....Adam Brody is a fucking idiot for breaking up with her.

My wife and I were commenting last night now the one joke premise has really turned into a must-watch show for us. It's gone from DVR to watch-while-it's-on, which is really saying something...

You could have used a spoiler a-hat.

Loved the episode. Kind of touching in many ways. Glad to see Chuck get some emotions! They've been shoving the character around with no pay off for weeks now!

I love me some Bilson - hope she has at least a recurring role.

Tang won't be missed in my house-hold.

My wife reluctantly watched this and 'Reaper' at the beginning of the season - now they are two of her favorite shows.

Excellent episode. Interesting to see the look on Sarah's face when Chuck broke up with her. Will be anxious to see how this development plays out based on the previews for next week.

Man, great episode and favorite show on tv right now.

Loved the truth serum scenes, even though they were predictable. Getting ready to pick the lock

"Who's better at this?"
"I am."
"She is. Dammit"

And telling baldwin his jawline was chiseled by Michelangelo.

"Will you really take it?"
"No, I'll tell you I will then run and give it to my sister."
"If you don't take it, I'll shoot you."
"You'd really shoot me?"
"No it's just a bluff. Dammit."

Regarding next week's preview:

Spoiler:
Could they have made it any more obvious that Bryce is alive?

Damn, that was an amazing episode. Chuck has gone from a mildly entertaining show to much watch TV. It's now tied with Dirty Sexy Money for my favorite show on air. I can't wait for next week.

Completely agree. Unfortunately my wife already decided to the show, but I am still loving it.
