What I'm Watching: Chuck

Chuck: Season 1, Episode 10 “Chuck Versus the Nemesis” (B+)

I can hardly get over how much the stores on “Chuck” and “Reaper” are alike, in this episode specifically with the preparation for the big shopping days and restructuring of employees to cover all the important areas. Morgan and Anna’s fling is amusing if not a bit overdone, but it is still in the background enough so as not to be an issue. I wish there had been a scene with Bryce and Chuck where they discussed in fuller length what happened at Stanford with Chuck getting expelled. Seeing Bryce and Sarah fight together is not quite as cool as Chuck seems to think and the continuous slow-motion shots are sort of irreverent. I hope Sarah sticks around (as I am sure she will) because she and Chuck really do make for a much more compelling and endearing team than Bryce and Sarah.
