Chuck -- "Chuck Versus Operation Awesome" -- 01/18/10

Chuck - Season 3 Poster

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
When evil operative Sydney Price (Angie Harmon) mistakes Awesome for being a master spy, Chuck responds by serving as Awesome's handler and tutoring him in the fine art of spying. While on a mission, they encounter an enigmatic man (Brandon Routh). Meanwhile, a promoted Morgan becomes assistant manager, but that means he has to deal with Jeff and Lester's tomfoolery.


Looking forward to it.

So far, our Canadian station is airing the show a day earlier (Sundays @ 9pm). I can't complain about that

Anyone else feel like this episode was rushed? I think out of all of the episodes from the three seasons it is my least favorite. Still better than the other crap on television, however.

Pretty solid episode. The ending holds some intrigue for next week(s). (Chuck and Sarah's looks to each other and Shaw's ring.)

Liking where the story is leading so far this season. Should be an interesting build, especially with the extra 6 episodes, although, theoretically, it would be "wrapped" in the first 13.

Two movie refs in one scene. Lester's crying "I got no place else to go!" and Morgan's "Double-secret probation." Good show!

Liked the first Honda commercial with Morgan trying to hug the moose and Awesome trying to tape it. Would have been great to see the video.

The addition of Shaw is mildly interesting but I would really like to see more of Chuck kicking ass rather than running away.

I love the show but I already find myself starting to get annoyed every time they repeat the "Flash! Why can't I flash!" problem, and we're only four episodes in. Really hope we don't see that 300 more times. I understand drawing it out so Chuck isn't suddenly unstoppable, but it'd be nice to see him make some progress in being able to control it, or at least a slight modification, like he learns how to force himself to flash but it's not always the exact skill he was hoping for.

Still, I liked Routh, and Buy More Fight Club was great.

Awesome episode tonight.

Loved Awesome's absolutely piss poor explanation to Ellie for his whereabouts. Noticed a Bear in the tree and decapitated it. Devon is turning out to be a really cool character. I hope they will try to bring him in again to help out the team.

I liked having Angie Harmon as the villain. Too bad they took her out. It would have been an interesting recurring character to have.

What was the name of that song that was played when Devon and Chuck went into the CIA building? I actually really liked it. The show has done a good job with song choices.

Spoon - "Got Nuffin" (from their new album).
About the episode - I thought last week's episodes were a little weaker, but I loved this week's and it's back on track for me now.

I was a little annoyed with his "insertion" into the group. What is his rank? Casey is a colonel, and he comes in and outranks Casey?

They need to deal with Chuck's flashing more directly. It seems to be handled rather poorly right now - "nerves" being the explanation for it not invoking when needed is a poor explanation since Chuck is always nervous so he should never flash.

Still I like the direction things seem to be headed. The first 13 will likely lead to an arc completion of sorts, and there is no doubt a mini-arc can't happen in the added 6 (unless they shove in padding episodes into the original 13 which could be lame).

Maybe it's just me, but I thought that was bar none the most brilliantly hysterical thing of the entire series. I could not stop laughing.

Don't forget the Warriors reference - "Chu-uuuck....come out and pla-aaaay!" while clicking the pez despensers.

Chuck held up well - a 2.5.
In contrast Heroes got a 1.8.

Liked when the Security Guard thought Devon was in love with Chuck.

I really wish Chuck would have been able to shoot the ring agent ... I know he hates guns, but you'd think to protect himself or protect Sarah ....

NBC may pick up the back 3 to that 6 soon (ratings have been good for them).
