EPISODE REVIEW: CHUCK: "Chuck Vs. the Tooth" (Season 3, Episode 16)

About this time last year, "Chuck" was on the bubble. Would it be back for a third season? No one--including the producers (and, most definitely including the network, who should have known)--knew. Then the fans kicked in and bought a whole lot of Subway sandwiches and it dawned on someone at NBC that they didn't have any good shows on. So they decided to replace a whole hour's worth of viewing with a tired comedian and announced that "Chuck" would be coming back ... after the Oleolympics, and only for fourteen episodes.

Episode Review: CHUCK: "Chuck vs. the Fake Name" (Season 3, Episode 7)

If you are a fan of the series “Chuck” but didn’t see this episode, don’t read this review.  About all I can say that doesn’t spoil anything is to tell you that Big Mike ordered too many crock-pots.

Episode Review: CHUCK: "Chuck vs. the Angel de le Muerte" (Season 3, episode 3)

or "Chuck vs. the Angel of Death"

Moving back to its regular day and timeslot, “Chuck”’s pseudo-premiere (or, second premiere in as many days) was the best new “Chuck” of the season.

We start off with a fairly gratuitous scene of Awesome and Ellie’s first encounter, then flash to the present where Ellie is lamenting that, since getting married, they’ve become a boring couple. On top of that, her brother—who was supposed to come hook up their new TV—didn’t show (and has been missing a lot of family get-togethers lately, it seems).

TV REVIEW: "Chuck": Chuck vs. the Ring

I have been asked by multiple people (i.e. “more than one” which “equals 2”) to review the final episode of “Chuck” from season 2. I hesitated initially, claiming I didn’t have the time, but as I think back I realize that wasn’t the real reason I held off on reviewing it. The real reason was:

[drum roll please]

In many ways I didn’t like the episode.

Why would that be troubling? And since when did it bother a reviewer to say he didn’t like something? I mean, Roger Ebert probably hasn’t enjoyed anything that wasn’t demeaning to the entire human race in years!
