Chuck Season 4 Ep 1 Review

Chuck Versus The Anniversary

I haven’t watched season 3 so a few things made me go, what. Morgan is in the know and is a spy? Chuck’s absentee mother (Linda Hamilton) is a spy? Chuck has got an ugly haircut? The Ring has been eliminated? And TPTB just will not get rid of the Buy More?

Chuck and the dumber than ever Morgan look for Chuck’s MIA mother running up debt in the process. Casey still has no personality beyond annoyed grunting, Sarah still annoys and the opening credits are still the same ugly mess. All the charm of season 1 is long gone.

The quirky humour is forced and the low budget and recycled soundtrack from ‘The Hunt for Red October’ annoy. This ep’s stunt casting is Dolph Lungren whose acting hasn’t improved since ‘Universal Soldier’.

The sap and objectifying of women is still firmly in place and Ellie shows up for one scene to announce she’s pregnant. This was dull.

Best Lines:
“My advice: get a job.”

“He thinks we’re sexting.”
“What? What does that even mean?”
