Chuck - "Chuck Versus The Other Guy" - 4/5/2010



Spoiler:
Shaw has Sarah after discovering who killed his wife and Chuck is on a mission to find her, before it is too late. Meanwhile, Morgan considers leaving the Buy More again.


This episode was to be the season finale, until NBC added on another six. The show takes a small hiatus after this week, and returns with 6 new episodes starting April 26th.


And for the story of this photo:

Zachary Levi has promised to give birth to fellow "Chuck" star Joshua Gomez's child if the show's fans rally to help save "Chuck" and get the Monday night show a fourth season renewal. At WonderCon in San Francisco on Sunday, Levi gave fans a sneak peek of what his baby bump would look like, alongside a beaming proud papa Gomez. See pic below and here's a rundown of the panel.
The WonderCon panel breakdown can be found here (possible spoilers abound): http://chucktv.net/2010/04/04/chuck-takes-wondercon/

Yes.

Spoiler:
What happens with Sarah, Chuck, Casey and Shaw is all predictable but amazing. I can't believe what happens to Morgan.

It's hilarious how Zachary Levi, Adam Baldwin and Joshua Gomez claim Yvonne Strahovski is flatulent. That starts around 5:45 -

That tweet's an understatement. I'd say the episode has

I'm hearing nothing but great stuff about tonight's episode.

And that picture is just great.

I find it utterly ridiculous that this show, yet again, needs to be "saved" for a fourth season renewal. (I mean, it could just be a ratings ploy, but it wouldn't surprise me to see NBC can it either, at least with all the "press" out there. If they did, NBC would only be useful for Sunday hockey at this point. Oh, and SVU.)

First of all, for the ratings it's pulling in against such heavy hitters, I think NBC would be crazy to not renew. Secondly, as I've watched the (and still DVR) the CBS comedies and House (and don't plan on ever watching DWTS), I don't see how Chuck hasn't gotten more viewers, other than some folks are so invested in the other shows, they just can't break away. (I guess how I am with Grey's Anatomy; I should've left that show a long time ago.) Then again, there's no accounting for taste.

Really looking forward to the show tonight. (I try not to follow along too closely as to not hear/read any spoilers, so I'm not sure; did they have this episode finished before NBC gave them the extra 6 or not?)

They did - it was originally going to be the season finale.

Thanks. That's what I thought I read, but I usually try to keep away from reading anything that remotely looks spoilerish.

(Thanks to all that spoiler tagged their above posts!)

Looking forward to it.

It's on the bubble once again because people with the box aren't watching this live. I understand the most Americans hate watching commercials, but that's the only way a show like this can stay on the air.

Unfortunately, Monday at 8 is not a good time for some fans, including us. If it weren't for the box or the net, we wouldn't be able to enjoy it in a timely manner.

ROFL at Morgan channeling Yoda... "No, there is another."

great episode... certainly had the feel of a season finale (which it was meant to be)...

I love this show, and I love that Casey is back, and that he lobbied to get Morgan onto the team.

Loved the shot of Casey calling the General at the end with the Ring director.

Figured Chuck's first kill would be to save Sarah. I'm glad they've gotten that out of the way.

Great episode. They brought back all the humor with a vengeance and still had the action and suspense. Looking forward to the next arc in a couple weeks

Thus resetting the whole Sarah and her feelings about Chuck, but then Chuck feels bad and mopey about killing someone, and the circle begins anew.
Well, the second part hasn't happened yet, but saw it coming from last week.

This was a great episode. At first, I thought they'd make him a double double agent, but nah, they just killed him.

Oh, man, Casey's going to be Morgan's trainer. Awesome! Papa Bartowski is coming back as well! Can't wait.

Very good episode, even if much was seen coming.

I wonder, though, now that all the people that were ready to boycott if Chuck and Sarah didn't get together, are going to like where the next arc goes. (If the show continues to next year, it'll probably get to the fifth season, due to syndication, IIRC, so how do they keep them together for two more seasons and keep the show fresh.)

Should be an interesting last 6 shows. (In which to run with the "finale" and turn it into something else. Do they do another "finale", just in case, or leave it cliffhanger-ish for season 4? I mean, SOMEONE has to pick it up if NBC drops yet another ball, right?)

***Nice. Guess I should stop coming back in here.

I believe the producers have said that the new season finale would not work as a series finale. Whether NBC cooperates is another matter, of course.

I hope Sarah didn't ruin the cords of all those vintage videogame controllers.
