Chuck: Chuck vs. the Wedding Planner

Weddings can be a scam...

This week Chuck and Sarah took on their most terrifying foe, the Wedding Planner! While much of the story and mission of the week was humorous it felt really light, especially considering the potential drama for some story elements. Sarah dealing with the return of her father and Casey finally confronting the wife who has believed for so many years that he’s dead both seems like deep issues. Sure this isn’t the most heavily dramatic of shows but the creators have given proper weight to certain aspects of these characters at various times in the run so far. That being said the episode was quite entertaining in parts. There was Sarah in glasses again and the worst tasting wedding cake known to man! Fun stuff just lacking in drama where drama was required.

I stopped watching this silly episode before the halfway mark and watched Family Guy reruns instead.  This is an episode that Peter Griffin would associate with "A Tina Yothers episode of Family Ties."  He simply got out of his chair and said he would see the Keaton family next week.  I simply changed the channel and said I would see Chuck next week.

I was disappointed at how they filmed the reunion of Casey and his wife.  She thought he was dead for years, I think her reaction at discovering that he was alive, and her anger at him for essentially abandoning her to raise a child by herself, should have come through more.  That's the problem with this show - it's made itself a comedy with dramatic elements instead of the reverse.  Remember the first episode where Casey shot people in cold blood, and had no qualms about killing Sarah?  That's the show I want to watch.  Not "Jeffster" crap, which I fastforward the moment either of those two idiots appears on the screen.
