078 – The Gobbler

Sorry for the delay this week… Gray has been a bit of a vampire, working many long nights at his day job. But that didn’t prevent us from having a lot of fun discussing the latest Chuck, Chuck vs. the Gobbler!

What could the game changing final 10 minutes of next week’s Chuck be? Did anyone see Ellie’s con coming? And how can Sarah fight in heels? We discuss all this, and more!

We round out the episode with the latest news and spoilers.

077 – The Stork on the Cork

Wow! After a 7-week break, Chuck came back this week with a bang! Chuck vs. the Balcony, written by Max Denby, was action-packed, fun, emotionally moving… Chuck at its best.

We had lots of fun discussing the episode, with its wine-packed action sequences, though Liz expresses her concern that no wine was injured in the course of filming 😉

Oh, did we mention it also earned season high ratings? Awesome!

074 – Girl Power

Gray was held captive by work this week, but Mel & Liz are happy to kick butt in his absence! This is of course perfect timing, since Yvonne Strahovski kicked some major butt in this week’s Chuck.

Whether you call her “Female Rambo” or “Giant Blonde She-Male,” Yvonne put in one of her best performances yet in “Chuck vs Phase Three,” written by new Chuck writer Kristin Newman, and directed by Anton Cropper. She drew blood, and she drew tears — reminding us that the emotional core of our favourite show is what keeps us coming back.

Ratings were low this week against the Dancing With the Stars performance finale, though DVR and online numbers are sure to be high as word of mouth spreads. Let’s make sure all eyes are on Chuck this Monday at 8/7c, as Timothy Dalton and Linda Hamilton return in “Chuck vs the Leftovers.” Have a happy, safe Thanksgiving!
