Chuck - "Chuck Versus the American Hero" - 3/29/10



Spoiler:
Chuck has his pick of the best CIA agents for an undercover operation, but he has only one girl in mind for the job, Sarah. Casey, Morgan and Awesome team up to help Chuck win her back.


It looks like the show will take a 3 week break after next week's episode.

The Canadian ad for this episode = fail. (Spoilers until the episode airs, so watch at your own risk).

Chuck -- "Chuck Versus the American Hero" -- 03/29/10

Chuck

Synopsis:

Spoiler:
When Chuck is able to take his pick of the finest CIA agents for an undercover mission, he considers only one very special superspy---Sarah. Enter Casey, Morgan and Awesome, who try to help him win her back.


This is episode 12. Next week will be episode 13, which was originally supposed to be the season finale. Chuck will take 2 weeks off after next week and return April 26th for the final 6 episodes, which supposedly begins a new story arc.

Hopefully, this show will be coming back next season, but it is definitely still up in the air. If it is canceled, I just hope that the writers are given enough time to write a satisfying conclusion.

E Online is running an online poll called "Save One Show." Go here and vote for Chuck as many times as you want. It doesn't guarantee anything at all, but it would look good if Chuck won.

They are taking another break because NBC scheduled the 2 hour season finale on May 24th (It's competing against the 2 hour series finale of 24)

It's definitely up in the air again whether or not this comes back another season. Next week is episode 13, which was originally supposed to be the season finale. So I'm very curious to see how things end.

Heroes?

Wouldn't that be more suited for a "Which shows should be canceled first" poll?

Sad that people are tuning out because they don't like that they split Sarah and Chuck up again. I hear people were outraged and threatened not to watch anymore.

Morgan getting electrocuted was hilarious.

So anyone wanna bet that when Chuck finally forms his team, it'll contain Awesome and the Buy More staff?

A few more comdic moments tonight but still pretty dark compared to the Chuck we've come to love. Someone called the Sarah shooting Shaw's wife arc a couple weeks ago. Sara going for Shaw just makes her seem like a slutbag; Bryce, Chuck and Shaw within 3 years?

This is on the bubble again? This season has been brilliant! Do they need more room on the schedule for people bouncing ping-pong balls into a fucking bucket atop their head?

I thought for sure they had run out of Spies Like Us references but damned if they didn't pull another one out of their hat.

Good to see "Curtis" again.

Yes, because Chuck's record of Lou, Jill, and Hannah easily takes the moral high ground.

Difference is that Sarah seems to sleep with whomever she works with, Chuck seems to fall ass-backward into his relationships.

What are the recent ratings? I thought it was doing well...did it tank again or something?

Crap, I really like this show. Are we going to have to eat some more sandwiches and send some peanuts to NBC this time?

5.78 million two weeks ago and 5.4 million last week. IIRC, it was in the 7mil range earlier in the season.

Again, it's on against Dancing with the Stars now.

I liked the episode, but I don't like how mean Sarah has been to Chuck lately. The cold-shoulder stuff really turns me off. Glad to see her turn it around a bit at the end.

I am looking forward to seeing where the show goes, but they are dangerously close to committing to big changes. Keeping everyone in the Buy More setting is getting harder and harder to believe.

What was it?

There was another geek-reference I got a laugh out of and I can't remember what the hell it was now.

So, does Yvonne have a new make-up artist or did the show get a new lighting director? Combo of both? She has not been looking good in the past couple episodes.

The soda machine taking Chuck 50 stories underground in a blink of an eye. In SLU, it was a Pepsi machine.

amazing episode.

not bringing Chuck back for another season would be criminal.
