Re: Chuck -2x08 -"Chuck vs. The Gravitron"-Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

Wow. This show is great. Another Awesome!

We pick up right from the end of last week, more or less. The spy stuff goes off pretty much as you'd expect, except I have noted a perceptible increase in skill and confidence in one Chuck Bartowski over the last few weeks and it continues here. If he doesn't watch out, he's going to become a full blown secret agent without noticing it.

The Buy More gang... aside from another Anna-less week, they were great yet again. And Big Mike finally got to shine this week! It was so cool to see him mistake that Fulcrum agent for a store burglar and make like ol' Ronnie Lott on a wide receiver. Plus, he already had the cover story in his head so all Casey had to say was "yeah". But I think that is going to wind up being important, because Casey gave Morgan the credit for his being there by that. Morgan's going to look like he saw the bad guy breaching the store, saw he was too big to handle, called Casey for help, and Casey held him off long enough for Big Mike to get there and take him out. It's going to look like Morgan used leadership, problem analysis and teamwork to get the job done. He is going to be the new "Ass. Man." when Emmett goes back to corporate.

Wow, no one else watched or something.

I quite liked the episode because of the potential character evolution. Hopefully this will end his emotional angst for a while anyway.

Re: Chuck -2x08 -"Chuck vs. The Gravitron"-Discuss/Grade <SPOILERS>

I liked the episode except for the ending. What a twit. His "you were gonna shoot her" whiny crap annoyed the hell out of me. As a matter of fact she could have shot long before Chuck started talking and killed her dead and she didn't. Not to mention that she was protecting herself. His fascination with her drives me nuts. Get over it dude, grow a pair and act like a man for once.

It was kind of a lame line, but it was followed up by the awesome, "You're under arrest, Jill, and I'm break up with you," so I'll let it slide.

I hope Chuck was serious when he said that Bryce, Jill, and Stanford were a part of his past and that it's time to move on. I wouldn't mind Bryce popping up again, but I think I'd prefer if he didn't. I fucking hated Jill, and I'm glad Chuck was able to man up and arrest her.

Back to normal now. While Chuck and Sarah obviously still have feelings for each other, I like that they're starting to accept that they just have to be friends.

I haven't seen the episode yet, so I'm not reading any posts above me yet, but I misread the episode title and just about creamed myself.

"Chuck vs. Galvatron."

Awesome I thought, Leonard Nomoy is acting again!

That is all, move along.

I loved the ep
Why is Anna not on the show?
We have seen time and again that the General has access to the compound, why wasn't she monitoring the compound?

No idea, but at least they explained in this ep that her character has been "out of town" for the last month. Could be that she's in Taiwan visiting her parents. It's the only logical place I think she could be for that long.

Or maybe Casey really did refer her to the CIA recruiter?

Both me and the wife love this show. Even thought this story line was a bit predictable, we were both surprised by Chuck actually arresting Jill at the end. Only speaking for myself, I laugh each week at how they get the 'girls' to do sexy things. i.e. Chuck and Sarah in the shower. This week we get a great shot down Ellie's shirt while she is carving the turkey. All I have to say is BEST SHOW EVER!!!! Okay, maybe not. However for objectifying hot chicks, absolutely.

The creators know the girls are hot. The girls know they're hot. By the end of the show, all the girls are gonna be naked and in slow-motion.

Maybe the actress got a feature and can't be on for a few episodes. The writers' strike altered a lot of shooting schedules.

Loved Morgan watching the turkey being thrown away.

Ellie is wearing every day clothes

What can I say, another excellent ep. The storyline didn't play out the way I was hoping it would, but I still loved it.
