I agree with laurenthoutent

This episode was annoying, enervating, mindless, and just flat out ridiculous. I remember years ago having watched "Chuck" all the way through twice. At the time I really enjoyed it. Going back and looking at the episode ratings I gave makes me wonder what in the world I was thinking. This series has not aged well at all. I have a vague recollection of being impressed with the "love story" aspect of Chuck and Sarah, couched in all the spy stuff. Now it all seems like a very very very bad soap opera. I end up muting and fast forwarding through more than I end up watching. Putrid definitely captures this mess. It's not funny. It's not smart. It's not intriguing. It's just crap.
