    No thread yet? Ok, I'll do it...

    Return of the two most talked about Greta's... Casey's little project is his own Intersect Team. And the ability to program / de-program Intersect Agents at will.

    Ellie being pulled into the spy world via Papa B's laptop.

    And the Chuck & Sarah team being effectively sent down to the minors.

    Best character development was Casey admitting that he was no longer an equal partner, but back-up.

    Best story development is finding out that for the intersect to be balanced, it needs to be in the head of a Bartowski.

    Best moment? When they needed salt water to defuse the nuke. I had a totally different solution in my mind than Apple Juice. Actually the juice box seemed way out of character for Chuck. He is a real agent in his own right now...

    1.6 rating in the overnights has me worried.

    Yeah, I don't understand the whole minor-league assignments stuff. Sarah is an experienced agent and Chuck's been doing well as of late. Perhaps they're not as versatile as Old Spice Guy and Blondie, but they've got to be more effective than most CIA teams. Is there really only one team's worth of jobs out there?

    I liked the episode. Morgan getting tortured was amusing and I kinda knew it had to be Casey, but it still made me smile.

    I didn't understand why Chuck was in that big suit at the airport, but it served it's purpose. The TEAM had to defuse the bomb. Not just Chuck, but all of them. And as he said, it was just like they started out so that was cool.

    I wondered why Chuck had a juice box attached to his bomb suit.

    I don't associate apple juice with salt water.

    But apparently anything with sodium in is it basically the same thing. :D

    I didn't buy that either. I just checked my fridge, and on a bottle of 100% apple juice, there is 25mg of sodium per 8floz (I think I remember on Chuck, it was 100mg, which is about Gatorade (110mg/8oz)). That is considerably less than seawater, which at 3.1-3.8% salinity, wave fingers, is over 7000mg per 8floz. Hey, this is Chuck.

    Yes, that was the most unbelievable part of the show.

    Interesting with all that has happened in Japan, that the salt water issue comes up in Chuck. Maybe they need more Apple Juice over there.

    I could see a mile away that Ellie was going to wind up with the intersect. Might be some interesting comic relief to see her flashing (the intersect that is). It was actually good to see Lester and Jeff actually have a role in the actual plot of the show and not something totally contrived.

    And as usual, some of the best use of 5.1 sound.

    Still digging Chuck.

    Anyone else notice that Casey's lair was black toned, while Castle is light...

    I suspect that they were going to use something else for "sea water" and the network censors said no.

    I'm having a hard time caring about the characters. Chuck is a spy with a hot girlfriend and he whines because he's not the best?

    At least when he was a sad sack who dropped out of school and worked in retail you could root for him.


    I'm ready for the show to be canceled.

    Um, just why do you want to limit her flashing to the intersect? Although I know my reaction to her non-intersect flashing would not be humor, I would be happy.

    Yes sir, I wood. I mean, W-O-U-L-D.

    Yeah, me too.

    But that seems to a weird thing for the censors to cut, since it was a major (?) plot point for a Friends episode a decade ago, which also aired on NBC at 8 pm (to a much larger audience, too. ;))

    I had to laugh when they called the bomb a 5 kiloton nuclear bomb. I'm assuming they meant 5 megaton nuclear bomb. As a 5 kiloton bomb would be destructive but not like they were talking about its destructive blast radius.

    Loved Ellie baiting Jeff & Lester with the implication of home made porn.
