HR Manager


Halloween preparations take a backseat when Chuck sympathizes with Laszlo Mahnovski, a genius inventor kept in isolation to work for the CIA, who escaped and is suspected of vicious murders. Buy More's nerd herd meanwhile is to apply for the vacant lower management post, for which only absent Chuck is truly fit. Written by KGF Vissers

Chuck Verses the Sandstorm is another good episode of "Chuck"
1 November 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Every week it seems Chuck has trust issues with his handlers, Sarah and Casey. This time another person he meets named Laszlo gives a good reason for him to have them: He mentions the bugs hidden in his house. After finding them he confronts Casey about them, Casey tells him its for his own good although he hates the conversations about sandwiches Chuck has with Morgan. Chuck is also up for an assistant manager position at Buy More and tells Morgan to grow up. Morgan enlists the help of Devon ("Capt. Awesome"). As he bonds with Laszlo watching James Bond movies, Chuck's unaware of how dangerous Laszlo really is...That conversation about sandwiches on a deserted island that irks Casey so much is a highlight of the episode as is the whole costume party that climaxes the hour with Chuck and Morgan really bonding over the annual Dune sandworm outfit they always dress in at this time of Halloween. I recognized a fellow agent that appears here as Samantha's superior on "Samantha Who?" last week. He sure is one strange looking dude! Also loved the whole scene of Awesome telling Morgan to tuck his shirt as a way of acting more mature. Looks like they really are trying to make him a little less irritating though I still loved when he revealed to Ellie's boyfriend that when he was 12, he stayed under the bed to look at her undress! Hope the ratings pick up this week!
