Chuck – S04E14 – Chuck Versus the Seduction Impossible Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Following the highly emotional episode that preceded this one, Chuck really took things in a different direction. Chuck (Zachary Levi), Casey (Adam Baldwin), and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) were all feeling uncomfortable at home. It wasn't hard not to feel for them, frankly. The constant talk about the eventual wedding was overboard. The gang practically begged General Diane Beckman (Bonita Friedericy) for a mission. Thankfully, there was something for them to do. Roan Montgomery (John Larroquette) is quite the ... Read More

Chuck – S04E13 – Chuck Versus the Push Mix Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

After one of the only disappointing episodes of the season thus far, Chuck rebounded with one of the best episodes of television that I’ve ever seen. Everything seemed to come to a head with this. We had several stories all coming together that led to a beautiful ending. I honestly thought the Alexi Volkoff (Timothy Dalton) plot was going to take considerably longer to wrap up. I don’t think they’re really done, but for the time being, I have to ... Read More

Chuck – S04E12 – Chuck Versus the Gobbler Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

This was the episode I was sort of regretting watching. We all knew at some point that Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) was going to have to prove herself to Alexi Volkoff (Timothy Dalton). Alexi is no fool. He knows he can’t just let some so-called rogue CIA agent into his network of thugs and assassins and be trusted. Having her break out one of Alexi’s most trusted security guards was fairly entertaining. Watching Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Casey (Adam ... Read More

Chuck – S04E11 – Chuck Versus the Balcony Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Regular Chuck fans are well aware of the story about Mary Bartowski (Linda Hamilton). The double agent has had to join Alexi Volkoff’s (Timothy Dalton) network of baddies in order to bring it down. The speed of Mary’s success isn’t exactly something to be impressed by, however. She’s had twenty years and Volkoff Industries seems to be doing as well as ever. After letting her intentions be known to General Beckman (Bonita Friedericy), Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) has ... Read More

Chuck – S04E10 – Chuck Versus the Leftovers Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

When you think of big episodes, this episode has to be one of those that comes to mind. "Chuck Versus the Leftovers" was chock full of surprises. I wasn’t expecting Alexi Volkoff (Timothy Dalton) and Mary Bartowski (Linda Hamilton) to make another appearance so soon after their previous one. Anytime the writers try to bring some sense of normalcy in the Buy More, I smile. The talk about Black Friday was actually disappointing because all it was was talk. ... Read More

Chuck – S04E09 – Chuck Versus Phase Three Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

After seeing the Belgian (Richard Chamberlain) take off with Chuck (Zachary Levi), I knew what was about to come – a wild and crazed Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski)) hell-bent on getting her boyfriend back. The execution proved good, but I didn’t care for the Belgian storyline. Richard Chamberlain played the typical cookie-cutter villain in a spy film. I had really hoped for something a little different, a little more impressive. Watching Morgan (Joshua Gomez) and Casey (Adam Baldwin) bargain with ... Read More

Chuck – S04E08 – Chuck Versus the Fear of Death Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

With the Intersect no longer functioning, it was panic time for the CIA. Mary Bartowski (Linda Hamilton) did quite a number on her son when she blocked Chuck's (Zachary Levi) ability to access the Intersect. Chuck made himself available to the agency's doctors in order to get his brain back to being fully functioning. I thought Rob Riggle was a terrific choice for the role of Jim Rye, the agent who was ultimately put in charge of getting Chuck's brain working ... Read More

Chuck – S04E07 – Chuck Versus the First Fight Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

Following the sudden adventure surrounding the capture of Mary Bartowski (Linda Hamilton), Chuck (Zachary Levi) has been a bit of a mess. He and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) have a big fight over the subject, their first big fight. You really can't help but feel for the guy, but the evidence is pretty strong. She looks like the villain. Watching Chuck set out to prove his mother's innocence was brilliant. I loved that sequence at the bar. I never ... Read More

Chuck – S04E06 – Chuck Versus the Aisle of Terror Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

For a show that knows how to do comedy so well, "Chuck Versus the Aisle of Terror" comes in and reminds you that they haven't forgotten how to structure crazy dramatic scenes. I was truly impressed with this episode. I had some serious doubts when Mary Bartowski (Linda Hamilton) asked to meet up wish Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi). I thought it was a setup and I was right. I just didn't know it would be the second meeting that would ... Read More

Chuck – S04E05 – Chuck Versus the Couch Lock Review

Categories: Episode Reviews

After the disappointing fourth episode, I really needed "Chuck Versus the Couch Lock". It blended history and drama with terrific comedy and bravery. This has been the highlight of the season thus far. After learning that John Casey's (Adam Baldwin) old Clinton-era team was now working for Volkoff Industries, Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi.) made the executive decision to use Casey as bait, luring them in for Casey's fake funeral. Joshua Gomez was brilliant as Morgan Grimes in that scene. Along with ... Read More
