What I’m Watching: Chuck

Chuck: Season 4, Episode 15 “Chuck Versus the Cat Squad” (B)

I’m not sure why it is, but as this show continues to bring back past guest stars week after week, I have a harder time recalling when and what they did the last time they were on the show. As a result, Carina didn’t ring any bells and I only had all of Morgan’s references to go on to help me recall just who she was. The Cat Squad, fairly reminiscent of Charlie’s Angels, was decently entertaining, but it wasn’t among the show’s better plotlines recently. Lou Diamond Phillips was a fun guest star, as were the other members of the Cat Squad, including Mircea Monroe, who plays Morning on “Episodes,” as the seemingly nice but highly duplicitous Amy. I’m glad that her threat to Sarah about knowing where her loved ones live – extending all the way to Ellie and Awesome’s newborn baby – didn’t pan out, since we’ve had the extended Bartowski clan put in harm’s way more than enough lately. Morgan didn’t try too hard to dissuade the irresistible Carina from nearly sabotaging his relationship, and it’s only in his final moment that he proved himself worthy when he confessed his love to her. I enjoyed seeing Casey and Chuck bond in the van since all we seem to see Chuck doing these days is freaking out over how little he knows Sarah. Always the voice of reason, Ellie made a good point when she told Chuck that she might well not have the same expectations, hopes, and dreams that he does.
