    Just caught up on this week's episode. Great one. Not as good as last weeks or the week before I dont think, but still good. I dunno what kind of direction they are gunna go with from here, but its getting a bit darker it seems. I really hope they get back to some of the dynamic that made the show super great in the first place, but its still really great atm.

      It is getting a little darker, but I think it will get back to the old formula. Seems like they're just setting up a lot of things for going forward.

        Going back to the old formula would be a mistake.

          I like darker Chuck. Old formula would often get a bit too corny and light-hearted for my tastes.

                The old formula is what got it to season three, so I disagree that going back to it is a bad thing.

                As for this "darker" Chuck you like, it just tanked in the demo (1.9 is the lowest Chuck has ever been) so unless you're in the camp that believes it was Daylight Savings Time and not a trend, it's a bad sign. A lot of the casual fans who loved Chuck in season 1 and 2 aren't watching now, and a lot of that has to do with the "darker tone" the show has taken.

                I'll watch the show no matter what, but I think you're in the minority here.

                  I'd rather it go out with a string of great, darker episodes with an arc (ala what Dollhouse did) than just continue on with fairly solid episodes for a few seasons.

                    Thats because most people like absolute crap, the drop in ratings is a sure fire sign that the show is better now!

                      This is a good assessment actually.

                        No it wouldn't. That old formula got it three seasons, even if just barely, which is more than 90% of other TV shows can say.

                        That said, I'd like to see a nice balance of the old formula and what's going on now in Chuck. Keep Chuck having some bad ass to him, but make sure he's still a goof ball at times. The Chuck/Sarah dynamic I feel is what made a lot of the casual viewers watch. Say what you will about it being annoying, but I do think it plays well for a lot of people.

                        Personally I've always felt Chuck and Sarah being 'together' would be best. Normally it might get boring, but they could throw in some awesome wrinkles to shake things up like Sarah or Chuck having to seduce someone else for a mission or whatever.

                        Next weeks episode should really decide some things hopefully.

                          I agree with this 100%. And someone can correct me if I'm wrong here, but I think this might be the last episode with Shaw, and if so, good riddance.

                            Well, I like Routh as an actor, but it seems like every actor they cast as a new spy who's supposed to be helping Chuck ends up in the exact same mold. Same with the British spy from season 2. Threatens Sarah/Chuck relationship, isn't a bad guy though, blah blah blah.

                              I liked this episode. But not as well as last weeks.

                              So was that really Casey's daughter? I didn't notice his fiance being pregnant in the flashbacks.

                              I think he'll be back on the team in a week or two and it'll probably coincide with the end of Shaw's run.

                              Didn't see the previews for next weeks episode. That bums me out a little.

                                Yeah, that was Casey's daughter. His fiance was going to tell him that she was pregnant on the phone with him but T2 disconnected the phone before she could.
