'Chuck' 4.23 'Chuck Versus The Last Details' Review

Like our title character, Chuck fans know that when you say everything is perfect and nothing can go wrong, something - a lot of somethings, actually - will go wrong. In this case, 'wrong' sees Ellie turn into the wedding planner equivalent of a Bridezilla and Chuck's mom get kidnapped by Vivian Volkoff. No big deal, right? (Obvious sarcasm is obvious.)

"Chuck Versus The Last Details" feels like a typicalChuck episode, in that it derives much of its humor from our heroes' errors, quirks and mishaps, like Jeff and Lester having hours of footage of Sarah from the Buy More, or Chuck awkwardly pretending to hit Casey to maintain his cover as an enemy guard. The latter is a perfect example of the "fish out of water" idea that's been around since the first season, and while we've seen Chuck grow in some episodes (like when he stepped up to become a leader in "Chuck Versus The Muuurder"), sometimes I feel like the clueless bit is getting old. I'm wary when I have that feeling, because I don't ever want to get toocomfortable with my characters and start finding them predictable. We'll see how that pans out over next week and into a potential season five. Read more...
