EPISODE REVIEW: Chuck: "Chuck vs. Operation Awesome" (season 3, episode 4)

This episode makes for a second out-of-the-park homerun in as many weeks for NBC’s show “Chuck”. [Note: as everyone who follows me on Facebook knows, my interest in football ended Sunday afternoon and I am now in baseball mode.]

Last week’s episode of “Chuck” left us with the impression that Captain Awesome had been killed. An impression that lasted about 120 seconds because the preview for this week’s ep showed him alive and walking around (the only weakness in last week’s episode as the cliffhanger ending could have been better served by previews that didn’t take the surprise away).

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!

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

This was a funny episode and a fun one to watch, and while its story line was basically wrapped up within the episode, I got the feeling that its main purpose was to set up some stuff for later on.

Computers near Chuck start to talk to him. And they seem to know when he’s alone. When he replies, the entity on the other end of the ether claims to be Orion, the original inventor of the Intersect and—Chuck believes—the person most likely to be able to get the Intersect out of Chuck’s head.

Chuck vs. the Lethal Weapon

[Warning: there may or may not be spoilers in this review, but I AM going to assume if you’re reading it at all that you’re already familiar with the basic premise of the show and the characters last names and quirks.]

When last we had left Chuck, the love of his life (Sarah) had seemed to be falling for MI6 agent Cole, but Cole had been abducted by Fulcrum and Chuck’s secret was in danger because Cole knew about it and, as Sarah (and everyone else in the episode) said, “Everyone talks.”
