After a brief winter hiatus Chuck returned with our favorite underachieving geek turned spy looking for the perfect scenario to propose to Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). The mission to recover the microchip gives us several fun moments including a late twist foreshadowed earlier in a conversation between Sarah and Gen. Beckman (Bonita Friedericy), Sarah pretending to be drunk, and Morgan and Chuck’s (Zachary Levi) homage to The Court Jester as Chuck frantically searches for a “peppery pinot with a stable on the label on the cork.”
The end is near as the current TV season makes way for summer programming and endless reruns. While we can’t keep track of everything fading into black, we will try to help you out with a few choice season finales.

I’ll agree with our pal Fork, I’m pretty damn happy with this past season and can’t wait for the show to return with new episodes in the Fall.
Chuck triumphantly returned last night with the Morgan Grimes’ (Joshua Gomez) first mission, the beginning of Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah’s (Yvonne Strahovski) relationship (for real this time), a romantic (and dangerous) train ride in the French countryside, and, yes, Jeffster giving us their take on John Denver’s “Leaving on a Jet Plane.” Watch, you know you want to.
I do love my some Chuck, and last night’s episode gave us Morgan discovering his best friend’s secret, evil spies breaking into Castle (led by Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘s very own Dark Knight), and the revolution of the Buy More employees trumpeted by the dulcet tones of Jeffster:
