CHUCK “Chuck Versus The Third Phase” Review

Chuck Season 4 Episode 9 - Chuck Versus Phase Three

This episode was basically a showcase of Sarah’s love for Chuck. Last week Chuck was kidnapped by the Belgians, this week he is trussed up in Thailand and it’s up to Sarah, who’s so Crazy In Love that she tortures, traps and fights her way to Chuck’s arms.

Yvonne Strahovski can certainly mime fighting, but the director of this episode undermined any semblance to seriousness her scenes may have posed by dressing her in short shorts and tank tops and shooting her from low angles, like some Lara Croft wannabe. Then the writers undermined the dangers Sarah faced in the one-on-one comabt scene by bringing Casey and Morgan to the rescue way too early. I would have preferred to see her get out of the jam herself, though above all I would have liked to see her avoid a stupid Tekken fight with her wits. Nevertheless, with Casey and Morgan nearby, Sarah continues this faux-dangerous fight. The greatest threat to her is amassing a few bruises because there is no doubt that should she begin to lose (which we know she won’t) Casey will pop a cap in the Thai guy.
