Review - Chuck Season 4 Episode 23 Chuck Versus the Last Details

Again, I wonder how the fourth season of Chuck would have looked if NBC had originally given it a full season order. There is a lot going on in "Chuck Versus the Last Details," probably more than a single episode could handle, what with Casey and Morgan, Elizabeth, Ellie, Chuck and Sarah, and the plot. Still, the writers managed to hit the key points and provided some of the closure for the possible penultimate episode of the series.

Heading into the season finale, it's guaranteed Sarah will survive. If this were a Joss Whedon show, it would probably be another story. Then again, it'd probably be canceled long before the fourth season. Anyway, Vivian Volkoff is on the loose and basically as crazy as her father is, refusing to listen to reason and being angry at Chuck.

On the topic of ratings, Chuck's have been terrible--like NBC's other shows (except for The Voice). Even with budget cuts and a rabid fan base, the current ratings in the low 1s might not be enough. My personal opinion is that I don't really care anymore. I cared a lot about renewal back in season 2--yes, I even bought a sub--but my feelings have faded over the years. Chuck is still a decent show, but not one of my priorities. Will I feeling sad if Chuck is canceled? Maybe a little, but it certainly won't be a burden.

Score: 8.8/10
