    Loved it. John Larroquette was fantastic and I also hope he becomes a recurring character. The "B" stories were great, and worked well in the theme of romance. Action was okay, but it was neat to see the snazzy new digs. :)

    Great show this week. This season it's the only show I actually look forward to. People need to quit picking on Sarah Lancaster. I don't see anything wrong with her and she's cute.

    Another awesome ep of my favourite show that's still in production. :D I just cannot get enough of this show, seriously. It just has a certain charm that totally works for me. I definitely plan to re-watch this ep before the next one airs (like I did with the season premiere).

    Agreed. She's really the only normal character on the show, and in a show like Chuck you really neeed that.

    I enjoyed the ep
    My only thing is that I think Chuck and Morgan changed too much in the hiatus!

    Chuck seems to be doing more of a constant comedy routine now, doesn't he?

    I dunno, I kind of like it.

    Yeah Chuck has definately gone with more purposeful comedic lines. Like last season he used to be funny in the sense of his ackwardness, etc. But now he's purposely saying funny things, etc.

    AS for his sister, played by Sarah Lancaster, I hope they involve her more in the show. She had good amount of screen time last year but so far this season it's been nil. They seem to focus more on the Buy More secondary characters more than Chuck's sister and his future brother in law.

    The scene in the beginning with Yvonne and the song "Do you Believe in Love" from Huey Lewis was hiarlious.

    Hopefully, now that they've reintroduced the Buy More gang, they should do some more stuff with Ellie. In the pre-season stuff they kept talking about how, they were thinking of this new season as a new beginning for the show, so I think right now they are just trying to slowly reintroduce all of the different elements of the show.

    Best thing in the episode was John Larroquette. I always look forward to him on guest spots in shows. He's such a great comedic tv actor. This role fit him pretty well, too.

    And I also don't understand the complaints about Ellie. She's the one character that keeps the show on the ground.

    I personally don't have a problem with Ellie. And yeah, John Larroquette is just totally awesome. :D

    The trekker in me wanted them to work in a quote like "I do not deserve to live" or "You promised you would kill me." :)

    count me on this train as well!

    I loved all the little things in it, including the General's reaction to him

    ^ Yeah, and did you notice it was her he was setting up a date with (over the phone) at the end of the episode. ;)
