Chuck -- "Chuck Versus the Fake Name" -- 03/01/10

Chuck


Synopsis:

Spoiler:
Chuck promises to prepare dinner for Hannah (Kristin Kreuk), Ellie and Awesome. But it's a pressure cooker before all that: Chuck goes on a mission and must pose as the world's most lethal assassin. Elsewhere, Sarah resolves to keep her relationship with Shaw (Brandon Routh) purely professional.


Olympics are over! It's back!! No more breaks. The show will run non-stop until the season finale, which is on May 24th.

In the pic above, how is Sara supposed to hide the gun or knife strapped to her thigh underneath a skirt that barely covers her ass?

If any fairweather fan bitched and said they weren't going to watch the show anymore because of the whole Sarah, Shaw, Chuck and Hannah thing, then good riddance.

I had to laugh when some people thought the last episode was the worst ever.

I guess she figures people will be too busy looking at her ass to notice a gun or knife.

And she's right!

Definitely not here. The NBC boards were full of them.

I just hope the writers don't listen to that bullshit, take it to heart and actually pander to those morons next season.

Holy fast story arc Batman!

I knew it wasn't going to last beyond the season, or even until the end of this season, but I didn't expect it to end so fast!

I'm guessing some of those 'crazies' still aren't going to be totally happy about how things ended up this episode, but maybe they'll be happier now that the story is "halfway" there.

Overall, I thought the episode was pretty solid. Showed a fair amount of progression for Chuck as a spy, continued to get Ellie off of his back, has some Awesome, and the scene at the bar with Chuck and Casey was not only good, but added plenty of intrigue for future storylines.

The major drawback, I thought, was after Casey cleaned up at the end of the episode. I thought for sure that I knew the punchline Casey was going to give and he didn't. I thought for sure he was going to say "Now there are only 4 people in the world that can make that shot."

Did anyone notice the word 'located' was spelled wrong on the satellite Casey was using to find Chuck? I think it said Loctated or something like that.

Good ep though.

Yeah, I was surprised they ended it so quickly, especially now that Shaw and Sarah are closer. Though that had to be a kick in the junk to listen to Sarah tell Shaw her real name out of the blue like that.

I thought the scene at the bar was great. It's weird seeing Casey praise him after a mission.

Yeah, that was some cold shit. She knew it too, you could tell by the look on her face when he called her Sam.

I like the ep. Great to have it back. No Morgan, but we got Jeffster back and Awesome was awesome. The bar scene was some great shit. From Chuck kicking everyone's ass to Casey losing a tooth ("saved me a trip to the dentist").

we got a gratuitous towel shot from both Routh and Kreuk.

That was one heck of a shot, too. I'm still trying to figure out how he got the bullet in the assassin's forehead like that when the guy was facing Chuck and Shaw. His head would have been sideway-facing the window in that case.

Some good moments in this episode. Didn't expect Hannah's "one-night stand" line. I'm guessing it was Gomez's turn to not appear for budgetary reasons.

And certain fans had to be in agreement with Jeff's little monologue tonight.

We still don't know Sarah's real last name; her real name is Sam Lisa (something).

I can't wait for the episode two weeks from now:

Spoiler:
A Casey-centric episode where we learn about another surprise from his past.

Tony Sirico had the best lines in this episode!

"I hate those 'will they or won't they' things."
"Jeez, this unlucky guy is about to get double dead."

Awesome episode. Loved Jeffster and Big Mike running down the list of Chuck's hot girlfriends.

I thought the same thing. The only thing I can think of is it went through the back of his head and exited his forehead.

I doubt it. There will have to be some level of repercussions at the Buy More - especially considering all the comments from Jeff and Big Mike.

So isn't this a bit of a reset back to when Chuck was lusting for Sarah who was actually dating Bryce Larkin?

Did anyone notice the panorama establishing shots of the Buy More? The store next door is called "Underwear, etc.". I never noticed that before.

I'm surprised the show hasn't made Sarah an employee there.

I need to figure out what Chicken Pepperoni is. It sounds delicious.

i wonder it the Chicken Pepperoni reference is a nod to the movie - Seems like Old Times?
