I loved the way they wrapped up the season but that felt too much like a Series finale and not just a season finale. I hope it comes back in the fall.

NBC should put Jeffster on iTunes. I'd pay $.99 for "Mr. Roboto".

*edit: My DVR kicked out right after the wedding so I thought *that* was the end. Just saw the rest after reading a review. Now at least they have the plot to keep this thing going.

That version of Mr. Roboto rocked the house and continued the meta-madness of Tony Hale's VW commercial from years back.


Not sure about the revelation summed up in that last line (what about muscle tone, et cetera) but Chuck isn't there to make you think. It's there to kick your ass ten times, and last night Jeffster and Co. turned it up to eleven.

"Are you the Matrix?"

Ever since the reveal of Orion, I’ve been hoping and waiting for an Orion-Bryce onscreen meeting. It was one thing to have Bryce do what he did years ago to protect Chuck because he believed he knew Chuck’s best interests better than Chuck did. But then, Bryce went ahead and sent the Intersect to Chuck anyway, after protests from Orion (again over Chuck’s best interests). In the end, it was good to see Chuck finally direct his own fate, even though it was kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Let the Subway vigils begin.

"Why are you letting Sam Kinison and an Indian lesbian ruin your wedding?"

That line was such a sweet payoff for me, since I have always thought, from the first moment I saw him, that Lester was a woman.

Sadly, if the show is picked up, I think that was Jeffster's farewell, since it's going to be tough to work the remaining Buy-Morians into the show's new status quo. What a way to go out, though.

I love how this show has morphed from mildly amusing to must-see awesomeness. Two of my favorite shows of this season, Chuck and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, are on the verge of extinction. If I can only have one back, I think it has to be Chuck. (And that's saying something since TSCC's finale was amazing as well.)

Last week felt like it should have been the series finale. Last night felt like it should have been the S3 premiere.

LOVED Jeffster, and especially how they played over the gunfight. LOVED Casey making the save. LOVED Chuck eventually salvaging the wedding. Its awesome how Chuck was this [] close to getting what he wanted -- the normal life and the Sarah and no more Buy More -- and he chose to sacrifice it all.

Casey should be dead (the fulcrum agent keeping him alive was weak), but I love that this show refuses to go there. Even Bryce's body got removed by Fulcrum, so we know he'll show back up at some point, alive and probably evil.

The "To Be Continued" at the end felt too much like wishful thinking on the writers parts, like they were trying to make it so NBC has to renew the show. Just because it SHOULD renew the show doesn't mean that it will. I await the other shoe to fall now...
