Chuck vs. the Sizzling Shrimp today! Another vintage beauty, and one that resolves the whole stupid Ellie/Morgan thing into a working, if awkward, relationship. In so doing, they drop one of the awful plot lines from the early part of the first season.
There were two themes that start in this episode that continue through the rest of the show: Chuck losing a little touch with his immediately circle as part of the needs of the spy world, and Chuck becoming a real spy. Just a month or so in, and his whole team gets grabbed, and instead of giving up, he goes after them. This is why I like Chuck, because he does the things we all wish we did, albeit Chuck does them in a delightfully real fantasy world.
Some great moments:
- "Don’t get Cocky, kid" from Chuck to Casey
- Hall & Oates’ “Private Eyes” in the van
- Sizzling Shrimp generally speaking.
