Decided to give this show a shot as it looked like my kind of thing, and now I've watched all 6 episodes, I love this show! I really like the fact that it doesn't take itself too seriously and it just damn good fun! Ep 6 was especially good, all the stuff with the sandwich talk, really good, roll on episode 7.....

Episode 7 was great. Loved the Stanford CIA recruits coming to the rescue.
It's such a fun show.

Long may it reign.

I loved this week too. It was about time the show started following a larger storyline, and we got some really solid answers to the questions we've been asking since the pilot.

Also...

Really good episode, I like that Bryce resolution, it was funny to see that guy sell out to Tang. Also good to see Veronica Mars get a mention.

Episode 8 was really good, the ending was really sad though. But all the truth serum stuff was really funny.

Still loving this programme. The characters are really likeable, and the stories get the right balance of the spy and the ridiculous. I agree - the truth serum stuff was great. "Who's there?" "The CIA, the NSA, and me.. who's a little harder to explain.... Damn!"

As soon as Chuck and Sarah kissed, and we knew that the 'bomb' was ticking away air-levels, I knew it was Bryce in there. I love this programme - I'm waiting for Chuck to have to tell Morgan/his sister, because I get the impression it'll tear the friendship/family apart pretty soon otherwise.

Sorry if what I typed spoiled it for you I figured since Mr Hanna had posted regarding Episode 9, that proceeding discussions would be about that episode...

Bollocks, I just did the same. Only on Episode 7. 

Oh well, my own fault. Good show though, sometimes it stumbles into the too-ridiculous, but generally it's just really really fun.

The show gets progressively better each week. I'm just surprised that this ending wasn't used as a season finale cliffhanger.

The Wire is surely the best TV show ever broadcast in America. This claim isn't based on my having seen all the possible rivals for the title, but on the premise that no other program has ever done anything remotely like what this one does, namely to portray the social, political, and economic life of an American city with the scope, observational precision, and moral vision of great literature.

The Wire has never won an emmy? [It] deserves the Nobel Prize for Literature!

Makes you wonder what they will use... Assuming the writers' strike lets them get that far

I think I read somewhere that they have filmed all 13 episode, I'm hoping they don't get the full pickup but instead get a second season of 13 again.

13 ep first seasons work best, because it doesn't mean awful re-writes, la 24's first season. The Unit only had a 13 ep first season, and it worked perfectly. (Continuing my quest to publicise The Unit as much as possible!)

But didn't the second season have like 22? Thats partly the reason HBO and Showtime shows are great, because they usually between 10 and 15 episodes per season.

Well, yes it did, but the 13-ep first season is only necessary because of initial uncertainty as to whether it'll be popular or not. Once you've got past that, the other seasons can be the regular length. If the show can sustain itself across that number of episodes, I like that number.

I'm not sure how many have been filmed, but considering the first 13 were already written before the strike, and if reports are true that the strike will be ending soon, we shouldn't experience too much of a drought with episodes.

I loved the end too. Chuck is The O.C mixed with a lot of Alias. I love it!

Hmmm, I read that only 3 more scripts were ordered, and whats this about the writers strike ending soon?
EDIT: Scratch that, I was wrong

So there's more episodes left in this season? Good, I was worried after the ending of the last episode that that was it for a while.

I thought there was going to be gap too after that mini cliffhanger. Twas a great episode. Morgan shining his badge after the 'firefighter' told his boss there was a 'gas leak' was cracking. "Is this straight?"

This show has such potential, I'm glad the strike isn't unduly affecting it.

Felt like a slow start to episode 11, but once things got going it was awesome as usual and how hot is Yvonne Strahovski (yes I did copy and past that)

Nah, best bit was Casey's expression as the anger at Chuck mingled with the sadness at the loss of his car. Baldwin is comedy genius. You could see the emotions rippling across his face - great stuff!

The question is, will he actually retire the current Intersect?

Mr Wiggum, you've made my day. Problem with Tuesday is the influx I get from my aunt what with Prison Break, Chuck and the new Sarah Connor Chronicles.


The postman becomes overloaded.....and slow.

Had this show stopped over Christmas, or am I behind? The last one I saw was the one mentioned above, where Casey's car gets blown up.
