    Well, my DVR didn't record properly. Any way for me to grab this online? Say Hulu or the show's website?
    According to a recent commercial, it's already up at nbc.com

    What I learned from these episodes.

    Casey is like a kid out there, gunslinging it up.

    Chuck needs to man up a bit

    Saying no to a hot chick will allow you to bag said chick.

    Jeffster needed to break out into song at that party dammit!

    Sarah strapping a killing weapon onto a bare thigh is still sexy as all hell.

    so everything is exactly the same as it was for the entire rest of the show's run except for the fact that chuck has superpowers that only work when the plot requires it

    goodness

    what a brave direction

    Still though, I thought there was going to be plot movement

    Morgan becomes a chef! Nope
    Chuck and thingie get together! Nope
    Chuck becomes competent! Nope
    Chuck no longer works at the buy more! Nope

    It's just "look! stuff you like is happening! stuff from previous seasons! it's the status quo! you love the status quo!". It's lazy.

    Nope. Pretty much nothing has changed in this show since the first episode.

    The show really does hate character progression

    They go through the Chuck and Sarah "Let's be together!" to "We can't be together!" arc, like, every 4 or 5 episodes

    I hated the music for the first time in this show. Not all the music... but the Chuck and Sarah "Oooom whacha saaaaaay" moment felt so 2004.

    First two episodes were alright. I'm sure it will get better as the season progresses but the Big Lebowski reference was awesome.

    Also, they're bringing in a Bryce look-alike to be the Competent Spy Competition for Chuck this season. :v: I mean...really? We're really just going to keep doing the exact same shit over and over and over on this show? This is pretty fucking disappointing.

    I was hoping for more of Chuck doing for-real superpower spy things and Chuck + Aussie tomfoolery and whatnot. The only thing that should remain constant on this show is Adam Baldwin. Everything else needs to move the fuck along.

    apparently the Chuck premiere had the best ratings of any Chuck ever!
    The return of Chuck garnered its best ratings since its 3-D episode, with an estimated 7.7 million viewers watching the first hour and 7.2 million the second... making Chuck one of NBC's most successful scripted dramas.

    You sound surprised that the writers for Chuck can't maintain a new standard.

    also I'm not really sure if any of you were seriously expecting them to change the status quo in any drastic way outside the superpowers thing

    I don't know if I necessarily expected it to change drastically, but...it would've been nice if it had changed like...a little bit (yeah, yeah, I know, Intersect 2.0 but...it's still flashy Chuck the bumblespy). It's not like I'm going anywhere, though. I like the cast too much to not watch this show. I just wish that the plot would do that thing that plots sometimes do. You know the thing. The thing that makes for good stories. Development? Yeah.

    I just want it to get back to the point where Chuck was actually doing well on his own merits, and not just because of the computer in his head.

    I kind of would have liked to see a temporary direction of
    Chuck and Sara on the run, until Casey tracks them down and they have to reinstate Operation Bartowski because of some threat

    But I think you guys saying OH MY GOD EVERYTHING'S THE SAME THIS SHOW'S DUMB seems a bit reactionary. They were still high quality episodes.

    Well Chuck actually wants to be a Secret Agent now, he spent the entire first 2 seasons just wanting to get rid of the intersect.

    I'd say thats a significant change.
