Chuck Bartowski: [hangs up the phone] Spies, really?

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

Ever since he got kicked out of Stanford, Chuck has been hesitant about going back there. So much so that he doesn't want to investigate his former professor who falsely accused him of cheating on his tests or see a football game with Awesome and his former frat buddies. But a library book-"The Fall of the Roman Empire"-from there that he has yet to return provides some numbers on the spine that Chuck figures plays into the case so he reluctantly goes. Meanwhile, at Buy More, Morgan plots to have new assistant manager Tang be less of a control freak...A very good episode of "Chuck" that explores, via flashbacks, his relationship with late roommate Brice and why he betrayed him in the end. Also loved the ways Chuck got to communicate with many so many college CIA recruits with a simple phrase on his cell as well as that Asian girl from Buy More brutally sexually teasing of Tang in order to get his keys. "Chuck" just keeps getting better with each episode! Note: this being the week that NBC promotes the environmental uses of green, there's some mention and scenes of it during the pep rally and from Tang and a PSA during the show with Morgan and Casey.
