Chuck -- "Chuck Versus The Imported Hard Salami" -- 11/19/07

"Chuck Versus the Imported Hard Salami"
Spoiler:
Not all of Sarah's feelings for Chuck may have been a cover, she finds out, as Chuck begins dating Lou, a sandwich maker. When things couldn't get even more complicated, Lou turns out to be a part of a smuggling ring.

First Aired: Monday November 19, 2007

Does anyone know how many more episodes are left? (Either in the season, or the number that they've shot.)

Thanks.

According to this site, there are 5 new episodes left.

I liked this episode although I would have liked to see Rachel Bilson for a longer run. at Morgan breaking up with Anna

whew! I am so glad I've stuck with this show. It's turned into a must see for me along with Pushing Daisies.

Lots of goodies tonight. Best moment for me was Chuck's "comfortable on my end" reply to Sara. Even though their relationship arc has followed the usual cliche, it's done well enough to not make it eyerolling.

Loved the play between Anna and the boys. More Anna is always welcomed

missed Capt.

And I must be showing my age because when Sara showed Chuck his flying V bug I immediately thought "I gotta get one of those!"

Glad to see Casey helping out the Chuckster get some booty

really, really good stuff this week. This ep needs a second viewing.

Rachel Bilson desperately needs to get a new show.

Agreed. Especially since Sarah's attention will now be at least partially diverted.

Kind of weird how the wrapped things up tidily in 2 shows, from start to finish. Cause, I don't imagine they will get Chuck and Sarah together this season, anyway. I see a repeat of Stanford ("Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it." I'm sure that'll be uttered in some upcoming episode, or something similar.)

Damn, Chuck's gonna die from blue balls with all the cock blocking - stupid Bryce.

I was disappointed the rose wasn't a commie detector
...but not as disappointed as I was with not seeing Ellie or the Captain.

I'm seriously addicted to the opening credits of this show; I think I rewound three or four times last night just to watch them. It's easily one of the snazziest openings I've seen in ages.

Her stint was far too short.

Anyone else hungry for a sandwich after the show?

I'd call it The Snowmaker.

Me on Sarah, with a nice side of Lou.

Why he would dump Rachel Bilson for the blonde is beyond me.

I don't really like the idea of Bryce coming back. I know it sounds dumb for a show like this, but it feels too fake.

Have there been any shows with good long runs where the two main characters with sexual tension don't get together, or do and still have the show be good? That worries me about the show.

I don't think he really had much choice in the matter. He was spying on her and all that stuff with her ex. A girl's only going to put up with so much crap. Well, a girl a sane person would want to date is only going to put up with so much crap, I should say.

Bryce seems like such a big part of the show I don't see how he could not come back really.

The unrequited sexual tension story line is pretty common isn't it? Remington Steele, Who's the Boss, Moonlighting, Friends, Alias, Buffy.... I imagine it pops up in one form or another in almost any long running series. Heck it was even in CSI.

I can. He was killed.

Good points. Hopefully this can keep up the steam. And hopefully Bryce dies for real next week.

I'm just waiting for Jill to show up because then it will be ON. (It's not anything I know, just something I suspect)

If Bryce was being all noble getting Chuck kicked out of school, it would stand to reason that he was justified in how he dealt with Jill. So what's the deal with Jill? I can't wait to possibly find out.

And Chuck probably won't get any action from Jill either.

The unrequited love thing in CHuck is a little different in that it is more obvious even among the characters themselves that they have the hots for each other. Love the show.
