So what do people think about the first 3 episodes?

Overall, I liked them, but there's a few things that annoyed me:

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Devon is not dead. He's been kidnapped. If you saw the preview for next week Devon is forced to work with Chuck. Devon looks to have a bluetooth earpiece bomb to keep him compliant.

I love the show. But yeah i thought they killed him too till I saw the preview. I breathed a massive sigh of relief when i did. Devon is.. well Awesome.

Ah. Good thing, then.  I wonder if Ellie will find out about Chuck now.

I don't think that's true at all.  There's really only so much dithering you can do with this relationship before people are actively turned against it and resetting the status quo after all they've been through seems a little cowardly.  The main thing about Chuck/Sarah is if they could do it well, then it wouldn't matter.  The show doesn't need to centre around that relationship to be successful, and I'd argue that some of its best episodes never brought that to the forefront.

Well, that's a mighty big if... The chase is almost universally more appealing than what happens after the catch.

I think it's a no-win. This series survived based on hardcore fans going apeshit and gorging themselves on $5 footlongs. The writers realize they probably have enough goodwill built up with the hardcores to maybe string them along a little bit longer...  Seeing that any gamble that results in a misstep and it's a guarenteed game over... there is no wiggle room.

They stay the course that got them here, hope that the mid season marketing push gets them enough new viewers, you know the ones who won't be approaching burnout on the whole "will they/won't they" thing that the current fans enjoyed so much that they are begging for them to end up together... and then ... maybe they stay afloat long enough to move the characters forward.

Considering the numbers they've put up for a network like NBC, unless something drastic happens, I don't think Chuck will be in trouble this year.

I suppose you're right... with the overall debacle that is NBC... I wouldn't be shocked to see them give two hours a week to a revived MST3K at this point. The demise of  just about everything new they trotted out in the fall, including Leno... and the continuing slow death of Heroes has only helped Chuck's cause... the bar can't be that high.

agreed. I used to watch Chuck, Heroes, and My Name is Earl. Now I watch Chuck and Community. As long as those two are on, I'm fine.

That was a really fantastic episode this week. Best in a while. And man, Kristin Kreuk is stunning. It's going to be nice seeing her on the show now. I actually felt bad when Shaw called Chuck and told him that he had to stay on the plane, instead of going to the Eiffel Tower with her, but was happy when she walked into the Buy More. I like the relationship that they already established between her and Chuck in this one episode, so it should be interesting to see how they develop it even more in the coming weeks.

Excellent season. I'm glad it got picked up for a fourth as well, and hopefully NBC will extend that season to 22 rather than 13 episodes. The final six or so episodes were really enjoyable. This last season's character development was fantastic. They are really making Casey a great character and the relationship that he and Morgan were/are developing in the field and at the Buy More was great. Same goes for Devon and Ellie. It'll be interesting to see if anything happens between Alex and Morgan also. I've said it before but I just love this show.

It's baaaaaack. Awesome ep so far. Guest starring Dolph Lundren and Harry Dean Stanton.

Dolph said the line "I must break you." to John Casey.

Also Chuck was job searching and interviewed with Vandalay industries, That's George Costanza's old fake name from Seinfeld.

I dont know why, but I am really losing interest in this show......    I dont think it really knows what it wants to be and it just seems all over the place.
