Did anybody watch those brand new chuck episodes last night?

Was it just me, or were those the best episodes of the best written new series this season? I keep saying, there is no way this show can get better, and they just keep proving me wrong.

Yeah, I love Chuck.  I think it's probably the best show of the new season, though I sure that chair thing's been done before in a whole bunch of HK action movies.  I'd prefer it if they brought back Harry Tang though, he was awesome.

ah harry tang, good stuff. Yeah, the chair has been done, but this was better than most stuff I have seen. It was on Indiana Jones and Sean Connery in a chair level of cool.

I guess I like this show because it's plausible, and not silly like most shows.

This is one of my favorite shows on TV. Zachary Levi is perfect in the role of Chuck. I was watching him promote the show when it was returning this season and he was on Conan and Leno and he seemed exactly like Chuck. During his interview with Conan he pulled out his iPhone and showed off his Lightsaber Ap :D. Last week's episode was fantastic. Morgan and Chuck are one of a great comedic duo.

Some of my favorite quotes:

Von Hayes: "Who is this?"
Chuck: "Jor...Jorge Carmichael."

Chuck: "She said roast beef."
Morgan: "Roast beef? Are you kidding me. That's the worst kind of sandwich."

Yeah, I love the show.  I was a little disappointed in the Jill storyline reveal, as I feel it's a little obvious, but it's held together with really great performances and some genuinely funny moments.

And as an extra bonus, Tricia Helfer is going to be appearing on the show soon.  :)

It's a good no brainer show.

And anything with Adam Baldwin is a plus.

Chuck has been awesome recently.  While I thought the Jill storyline was a little too neat, everything else has been gold.  Major props for this week's Christmas episode, which had hilarious jokes - Al from Die Hard! - and brought us a new element to the Chuck/Sarah relationship.  The cast are great too.

I burst out laughing when Al Powell showed up.. I kept waiting for a reference to "The Nakatomi Plaza incident."

I think so.  He buys a whole bunch in the first scene he appears in Die Hard.

They already some "nakabooki plaza" half-reference when those evil dudes wanted to buy the office building from Sarah's dad a couple weeks ago.

I just checked.. It is nakamichi plaza in Chuck. It is Nakatomi in Die Hard. Very close reference..
