'Chuck' - 'Chuck vs. the Last Details': Chuck Bartowski's day off

A review of tonight's "Chuck" coming up just as soon as I finally watch "Mannequin"... "Just remember, Bartowski: Sarah's the one you're going to be sleeping next to every day. She's the one you protect." -CaseyNext Monday is a big day for "Chuck." In the morning, NBC announces its schedule for next season, which may or may not include a fifth season for our pals at the Buy More. And that night, "Chuck" airs a season finale that may wind up having to double as a series finale. With all the uncertainty about renewal, I've thought a lot about what I'd want out of next week's episode if it winds up being the end - and about whether it matters. As we've talked about before, the show has already produced a bunch of episodes that the creative team thought might be the last one ever. Some have offered large swaths of closure, while others have left a lot of things hanging out of optimism for a new season. And given how many wannabe series finales we've gotten already, and how strong most of them were, I'd been telling myself that it almost doesn't matter how next week's episode ends - or even if its title, "Chuck vs. the Cliffhanger," winds up being very literal. I've already gotten to see "Chuck" end, several times, I'd thought, and that should be enough. But after watching "Chuck vs. the Last Details" - which was both one of the strongest episodes of season four and one that ended with a wicked, wicked cliffhanger - I fear that if there's bad news next Monday morning, I may wind up having to burn my living room the way Schwartz and Fedak said I'd need to if "Chuck vs. the Ring" had been the swan song.  Read More...
