Episode Review: CHUCK, "Chuck vs. The Best Friend"

After last week's really good episode ("Chuck vs. The Suburbs), tonight's was just OK, and probably should have stayed in its original position (i.e. before last week's episode). Man, this is the second of my favorite shows to be preempted for Obama (the first being Scrubs). If I had known this was going to happen, I wouldn't have voted for him. I kid.

The main reason this episode was just OK is because I'm not a fan of Morgan. His man-childness is getting boring, and he's just weighing Chuck down. Part of me just wants him to be killed off, but that's probably too weighty for this show.

Usually, I'm not a huge fan of the Buy Morons, but I actually found myself laughing at the Jeffster subplot. Plus, Captain Awesome is back.

The spy stuff was pretty good, with some good Casey-isms, and I was glad they strayed away from Fulcrum for a little while.

I know some people are getting frustrated with the on-and-off tendencies of the Chuck-Sarah arc, but it is one of the main plot points, so I'm OK with it being drawn out.

Overall, an OK episode, but I'm excited for the continuation of the Dark Intersect story arc that was started last week.
