Remember when I used to talk about TV? Yeah, me either.
But my friends over at WB hooked me up with an early screener of tonight’s all-new episode of Chuck and I loved it! So I’m going to take a moment to gush about it… And not just because there was a letter from Josh Schwartz included in the package.
In “Chuck vs Santa Claus” the gang is all together at Buy More, where they’re having a blow-out sale on Christmas Eve to catch all those last minute shoppers. Well, they call it a sale but Big Mike and Emmett seem to have a different definition for that word. Apparently Ellie and Awesome among those who need do a little bit of shopping as they show up early for a little “friends and family” discount purchasing.
Can you see where this is going?
Add in a car crashing through the front doors and a thief needing hostages and we’ve got the perfect set up for Christmas at Buy More!
I don’t want to say anything more about the episode for fear of spoiling you so I’ll settle for saying it continues the fine tradition Schwartz started with The OC in providing holiday-themed episodes you want to watch over and over again. Just knowing we’re going to have everyone in one place probably tells you that there’s plenty of hilarity but there’s also several sweet moments as well. Plus, there are actual developments that are going to have a lasting impact on our favorite characters. All in all, “Chuck vs Santa Claus” is not an episode you want to miss.
I’ve watched the episode three times already and plan to watch again tonight when it airs at 8PM on NBC. Be sure to watch and then come back tomorrow for my thoughts on the events in the episode and let me know what you thought of it.
