Chuck Verses the Sizzling Shrimp is a very good episode of "Chuck"
28 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

As Chuck, sister Ellie, and Morgan go out on the town to a restaurant in Chinatown, Chuck sees an Asian woman that reveals to his computer brain that she plans to kill someone. Later, while Sarah and Casey try to stop her, Chuck sees the man that the woman plans to kill get out on his wheelchair. He helps him to his limousine just as that woman comes out and sees her tied-up brother taken to the trunk of the car. Chuck inadvertently allowed the villain to escape! He vows to help her get her brother back with reluctant assistance from Sarah and Casey. Meanwhile, Ellie wonders why Chuck doesn't show up for "October Mother's Day" (won't explain it here) and Morgan is desperate to keep his job at Buy More...Lots of references to classic movies with my favorite line being the Star Wars one: "Help me, Charles Bartowski, you're my only hope!" from Morgan. The wheelchair man named Lo Pan also appeared in Big Trouble in Little China with that name. Loved the way Morgan got some good scenes like when he seemed to help a beautiful lady customer who in turn offered her number then asked for it back when his fellow Buy More workers embarrassed him by saying not-so-good things about him. Or the one when he and Ellie bonded over Chuck's absences. And then there's the Buy More manager who, since Morgan's the Hispanic employee, says, "If you had quit, Afirmative Action would have been all over me." This is the most smoothly run episode of "Chuck" yet! Hope the ratings are good enough for NBC to give this series a full-season pickup...
