Chuck Fodder

Opinions: Chuck Versus The Sizzling Shrimp

The Good
They really planted the seeds for the inevitable love triangle of Morgan, Ellie, and Awesome. They might tease Ellie and Morgan for a long time, but you're in denial if you think something won't happen. "Chuck" versus the Sizzling Shrimp also had the best action. Notice that I didn't say the most action. "Chuck" versus the Wookiee had the most Kung Fu, which is ironic due to the fact that Sizzling Shrimp was an Asian based episode. Sizzling Shrimp had more of a "Mission Impossible Feel" to it. Good action sequences with an overlapping of good character interaction were real highlights in this episode.

The Bad
Where is the Nerd Herd? This is becoming a reoccurring problem. The writers for "Chuck" in general, have an annoying tendency to forget the second tier characters on the show. Where is Captain Awesome? Where is the Asian girl with the Tattoos? (See? I can't remember her name.) And what happens when they do come back? Are we suddenly expected to care for them the way we did before? It's like having a good friend and then not seeing them for five years. It takes time to get to know them and to care for them again.

The Ugly
Right now "Chuck" is 70% spy action and 30% everything else. It should be the other way around. The highlights so far have mostly come from "normal" everyday activities. I personally would much rather they ditched the entire spy angle and have Chuck and Morgan at Buy More the entire time. They could even change to name of the show to Buy More but maybe that's just me.

What's your opinion? Leave a comment and be heard! (or um"¦. read)
