Asta 2

Can Chuck get a haircut in Season 3?

Since there are no cut tags on Twitter, you, my dear friends, get the spoilery comments. ;)

I had a feeling after last week's awesome episode that the finale would be a letdown. I feel my feeling was right.

Another problem is that the finale was almost entirely predictable. The Chuck/Sarah dance goes on. Devon and Ellie's wedding is a disaster and Chuck uses his big bonus check to give her the weeding she really wanted. Casey gets his old team back only to have it conveniently wiped out. Chuck embraces being a spy by choosing to become the Intersect, accept dear old Dad has seen The Matrix since he originally designed the Intersect so now abilities as well as knowledge can be downloaded. And because Bryce is too pretty to die, he'll come back from the dead, again, should there be a third season (and if Matthew Bomer's new series isn't shooting at the same time or is a failure).

It probably seems as if I hated the finale, I didn't. It was fun enough, but a disappointment after last week and not as clever as the writers tried to lead us believe it would be.

I did adore Casey's comment about the fabric for the dresses clashing with the bunting. Hee!
  • Current Mood: blah blah
Come on...predictable or not, are you telling me you didn't bust out laughing when Chuck started kicking ass? And really, "I know Kung Fu". That was funny. I kind of hoped Chuck would have turned into Orion...wearing the little computer, instead of redownloading the intersect. Oh well. I still hope and pray it comes back.
Nope, didn't bust out laughing. Actually, I sat there thinking this is where Neo Chuck becomes The One and starts kicking ass with downloaded karate moves. Casey looking at color samples and using the word "bunting" I did find hilarious. :)
I found Casey's "Chuck Me" to be funny, but that's it.

The ep was badly paced with no flow between disparate scenes.

It was dumb killing off Chevy Chase (who looks too much like Dick Cheney that I hate life), although obviously they can skirt around that if they're renewed.

But the previous ep showed them playing for broke while this one just played it safe.

Neo-Chuck doesn't interest me at all. It would have been nice to watch him progress as a spy: I liked the Steve Carell Get Smart because while he was the geek, he was still way more proficient at shooting people than anyone off the street (while the real spies superpowers were what was comical, not his attempts). That would have been a nice level to work to and maintain.
