Chuck Versus the Truth is the first real excellent episode of "Chuck"
5 December 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

What an excellent episode Chuck Versus the Truth is! Lots of hilarious stuff involving Chuck and Sarah's cover of being a "couple", of Morgan buying a present for assistant manager Harry and his wife (whose hugging of Morgan so close to her is filmed by his cohorts and brings out jealousy in Harry), of Devon's ("Captain Awesome") talking of "riding the bike" with Sarah, and of everyone talking frankly while inhaling a poisonous truth serum. That last part is courtesy of a former gymnast villain Reardon Paine played by Kevin Weisman (you know, comic relief good guy inventor Marshall Flinkman from "Alias"). While very convincing in his different role, I kept thinking of his character from the former Jenifer Garner-ABC series and the contrasts in between. Also guest starring is Rachel Bilson, formerly of The O.C., playing Lou, a girl from a sandwich shop who Chuck obliges in fixing her cell phone. Both see a spark in each other, so much so that Chuck "breaks" up with Sarah so he can pursue her. So besides great laughs and action, there's also some nice drama not just concerning the triangle of Chuck, Sarah, and Lou but also of Ellie and Chuck's concern for her health after Weisman put the poisonous serum in her ear. This show just keeps getting better! Can't wait for the next one!
