Chuck -- "Chuck Versus Nacho Sampler" -- 02/01/10

Chuck

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Continuing his taxing quest to balance his two lives, Chuck must train new Buy More employee Hannah (Kristin Kreuk) while his spy work involves handling his very own asset, a scientist who's entangled in a nefarious organization. Meanwhile, poor prevaricator Awesome must lie to Ellie about Chuck's undercover endeavors; and Morgan, Jeff and Lester snoop into Hannah's background.


Just an FYI, next week's episode (2/8) Chuck vs the Mask will be the last one that airs before the Winter Olympics takes over NBC for 16 days.

So I've been curious, is Converse an official sponsor of the show? I'm thinking 'no' since they cloned out the star off Chuck's shoes in the promo pic.

I much prefer the Summer Olympics, especially since it doesn't interrupt shows like Chuck.

I checked a Chuck spoiler site and it appears that:

Spoiler:
Brandon Routh will recurring on the show at least through episode 12. They had some photos of him shooting the episode back in December.

I thought I read somewhere that Subway is still a sponsor, but I don't know.

I can't imagine they signed on at the end of last season and are gone already. Though, you'd think they'd be fairly prominently featured (or maybe they are and I'm that unobservant because I'm busy drooling over Sarah).

*** 30 minutes in, pretty great episode.

Excellent ep, like the dark turn this one took. Things are unraveling a bit.

Bet Jeff and Lester find the Castle before it's all over.

^Oh man, that could lead to some stuff.

Very strong show tonight. I also liked what Chuck had to do an his obvious discomfort while still getting the job done.

Yeah, things aren't looking good for Chuck. Devin is proving very un-awesome right now. He's cracking. Not that he's the only thread unraveling, but when Ellie put that together with Chuck, it got worse.

And Hannah didn't help matters at all. Chuck is going to very quickly have to put away all semblance of a personal life. Especially since he's going all spy now; Sarah and Casey don't have that luxury. It should be interesting how they deal with the walls closing in on Chuck's lies.

You can see Sarah's regret at Chuck's personality change as he becomes a spy. She's losing the Chuck with whom she fell in love. I can't see Chuck ever turning into that person, no matter how hard he tries. If he brought it back out in Sarah, somehow, even if he covers it up, it could be brought back out in him.

I liked the last scene of Sarah's attitude of being a spy before she met Chuck.

I do like Chuck having to face the realities of being a spy. I was hoping that we were giong to get a few more episodes of Chuck having fun with being the intersect first.

Excellent episode tonight. I am wondering how Chuck is handling all this baggage of being a spy? Is he thinking that any emotions he felt with Sarah are for real or just part of her ability to "handle the asset?"

Never realized there could be such a dark undertone on Chuck. I am really enjoying the way things are moving this season.

I thought they would have been here by now, too.

I was expecting them to do more w/ Kristen Kreuk.

I like how all the guest star chicks are ridiculously hot, plus the frequent shots of sarah in skimpy clothes. All signs of excellent writers..

Great episode

Great call back to the first episode with how Chuck and Minush's relationship mirrored the start of Chuck and Sarah's relationship. I like the contrast of Sarah almost horrified in the changes she see's in Chuck as Casey becomes more accepting is closer to seeing him as an equal.

Disappointed that we didn't more bear encounter stories from Awesome when he was covering for chuck.

Really good episode. I'm curious to see where this darker side of Chuck goes. Really very interesting.

Kristen looks really good.

Thanks to LicktheABCs. You don't disappoint.

I think Ausellio posted that last week. I didn't mention it because it's potential spoiler material. Knowing how many episodes a character will be in could kill the suspense of a scene where they might bite it.

Does anybody recognize the brand and model of the intersect glasses that minash wears? They looked very sweet and I'd like to track down a pair.

I'm pretty sure they were Oakley's. Not sure of the model though.

This show never disappoints. I too like the darker side of Chuck.
