Tweet 1: Entertainment Tonight is the worst lead-in for #ChuckItLive. They actually tell you to watch Dancint with the Stars. #WTF
Addendum: This is true. Every time I tuned in to watch Chuck a little early last year and saw Entertainment Tonight, all they talked about was Dancing With the Stars. Wow, NBC, you really know how to run a network.
More after the break!
Tweet 2: Watching #ChuckItLive in HD for the first time. How hot will @y_strahovski look in HD? Details in 2 minutes.
Addendum: I just got High Definition television for the first time. The attractiveness of Yvonne Strahvoski in this medium was the question of utmost importance.
Tweet 3: Sarah Connor, bitches. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: That, uh, that really says it all. Hi, Linda Hamilton!
Tweet 4: Answering my earlier question: Incredibly hot. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Seriously, if you have the opportunity to see Sarah Walker in HD, do it up.
Tweet 5: #ChuckItLive and Morgan are on some fast ass planes.
Addendum: I didn't realize at first that the intro to the episode was supposed to be lasting months.
Tweet 6: Calling it here: #ChuckItLive flashes on that menu.
Addendum: Almost had this called. Though it did play a role later in the episode so I'm still going to call this a win for me.
Tweet 7: Can we make #SarahConnorBitches THE hashtag for every time Mama B shows up on screen for the first time in a #ChuckItLiveepisode?
Tweet 8: I am totally okay with EMPs. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: It's actually a law that EMPs are the most acceptable ridiculous sci-fi plot device. Didn't you know?
Tweet 9: I am even more okay with Sarah one-shotting a dude in the face.#ChuckItLive
Tweet 10: Morgan's photo shoot? Hilariously creepy. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Also, I'm sorry to say that Zac Levi looks like he's gotten a little fluffy over the break. Where's that semi-chiseled Chuck vs the Final Exam physique, Zac? Okay I'm just jealous that he's even that much in shape.
Tweet 11: Did we really get a primetime sexting mention? So awesome.#ChuckItLive
Addendum: Little did I know. LITTLE DID I KNOW. (Did you just say "little did he know"? I wrote a book on "little did he know.")
Tweet 12: Vandalay Industries! #SeinfeldReferences #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Chuck is the most referential show on television. As a highly referential writer myself, I am TOTALLY OKAY WITH THIS.
Tweet 13: The Return of the Buy-More. Not quite on par with the Returns of the Jedi or the King. But close! #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Okay it's not really even close. BuyMore seemed kind of superflous in this episode, too.
Tweet 14: "My mind just broke." #ThingsChuckIsThinking #ChuckItLive
Addendum: In retrospect, I should have done a whole #ThingsChuckIsThinking hashtag. Ah well. Live and learn.
Tweet 15: Awesome Level 5: Government ruins your job opportunities awesome. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Can we get someone to write a fanfic of what exactly Beckman did/said to Chuck's prospective job employers during that stretch? Please? I feel like this could be a great crack fic. I am employing you, Wep. DONT LET ME DOWN.
Tweet 16: Did... Did Morgan actually initiate a possible sexting relationship between #ChuckItLive and Sarah? I think that's awesome level 6.
Addendum: Little did I know. LITTLE DID I KNOW.
Tweet 17: "I either leave or they die." #Lineofthenight #ChuckItLive
Addendum: It was, hands down, the best line of the episode. Even if it was a little sad. Casey had some AMAZING quips on this season premiere.
Tweet 18: Oh my God Morgan did. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Little did I know. LITTL-- Okay I'm done now.
Tweet 19: EVERYONE respects the beard, Chuck. #TrueFacts #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Maybe this is just because I am a dude with a beard, but seriously Joshua Gomez's Morgan beard is pretty freaking sweet. And I know first hand the level of automatic respect that comes with having a freaking sweet beard.
Tweet 20: Those of you who had a problem with Sarah not being badass enough have been pwned. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Also, I didn't mention this in my tweets, but we also got like four upskirt shots of Sarah. That felt vaguely perv-ish but also kind of awesome? Maybe just perv-ish.
Tweet 21: Best plot device ever. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Seriously. In what other show can you get an entire sexting subplot? Morgan taking over for Chuck and the disturbed looks on Sarah's face? F'ing priceless.
Tweet 22: Chuck goes badass is the only good non-romantic thing to come out of Season 3. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Yeah, when Chuck goes into badass mode, Zac Levi immediately goes onto the "I'm not gay, but if he insisted" list.
Tweet 23: Did... Did Chuck seriously just take out ten guys? #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Did he kill them? I thought Chuck didn't kill people? Did they kill each other? Does that count? WHAT HAPPENED I DONT KNOW.
Tweet 24: That's a good rule. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: Chuck you are like the tax code, finding those loopholes in your relationship rules. You jerk. Good on you Sarah, closing that stuff up. Can we get Obama to do to corporations what Sarah did to Chuck? #YesIWentThere #WaitImNotOnTwitterAnymoreWhyAmIUsingHashtags
Tweet 25: Seriously, the family stuff has always (and kind of strangely) been the strongest part of #ChuckItLive.
Addendum: One episode that, in retrospect, should not have been left off my favorite Chuck episodes list, is Chuck vs. the Dream Job. Every time we see a Chuck + Stephen or Chuck + Ellie scene, the writers seem to be able to handle that so effectively that I'm kind of astounded. It's like an immediate upgrade to the quality of the show. I don't know why this is. I wish that the entire show was this strong.
Tweet 26: Oh my DAMN Mama B is cold. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: That looked a lot like the Sarah Walker fight that Chuck flashed on in the pilot. I don't think it was an homage or a reference, but it certainly shows us how similar Mama B and Sarah Walker are. Which is fun! Also deadly!
Tweet 27: Okay that season preview looked epic. #ChuckItLive
Addendum: I'm not even going to spoil it. Just know that the word "epic" is totally applicable. Surriously.
Final note: What did you guys think of Chuck vs the Anniversary? Hit me up in the comments.
