Storyline

Chuck's nerd herd was prepared for the Christmas shopping rush, not apparently mentally instable Nathan Edward 'Ned' Rhyerson crashing in his car trough the front glass and taking everyone hostage without clear demands. Awesome is among the hostages with Ellie, but refrains his natural heroism long enough at Chuck's urging. Casey and Sarah fail to extract unwilling Chuck separately and end up hostages, Casey even loses a toe. Police detective Mauser, the negotiator in charge, alas also makes Chuck flash. Written by KGF Vissers

Some nice easter eggs here to freshen up the usual holiday fare
27 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Strictly as an episode, "Chuck vs. Santa Claus" is a pretty great one. It's got twists, turns, Fulcrum agents, and a heady does of sappy TV holiday spirit. Everyone in Chuck's life is rounded up in one place in a hostage situation, bringing the peril ever closer (and personal) to the guy. And characteristic of the rest of the show, it's got geeky shoutouts, too; I love that the hostage-taker is named Ned Ryerson.

Which brings us to the gem in this crown: it's the "Die Hard" episode. And it doesn't take that lightly, either. It weaves the hostage scenario into the overall serialized plot, the humor therein is great, and they actually brought in Reginald VelJohnson to reprise his "Die Hard" role. That's right, he's actually Officer Al Powell! And they made him Big Mike's cousin! Great stuff 8/10
