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.

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.

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.

TV Review: "Chuck": Chuck vs.The Best Friend

For both of the “Chuck” fans (“Chuckers”?) who haven’t noticed, all episodes of the show are titled “Chuck vs. … “ something. The Delorean. The In-Laws. The Spastic Colon. Something.

This episode could have been titled “Chuck vs. Philadelphia.” Those of us who didn’t sleep through government class—or, at least, stayed awake for the crucial bits—may remember that “Philadelphia” comes from the Greek word “phileo”, which means “brotherly love.” This episode of “Chuck”, while being one of the funniest episodes in a while, was all about brotherly love.

TV REVIEW: "Chuck": Chuck vs. the Suburbs [Multiple Spoiler Warning]

Chuck Vs. the Suburbs

With apologies to Charles Dickens, “It was the best of episodes, it was the worst of episodes.”

I picture a writers conference for Chuck in which someone pitched the idea that Chuck and Sarah go undercover in a white-bread suburban neighborhood to try and ferret out a suspected terrorist who lives there. Producers, directors and whoever else would be at such a meeting reacted enthusiastically and the ball began to roll with speed.
