    First of all, despite the boost from Subway's owner (thread here), "Chuck" continued to rank #4 well behind "House", "Dancing with the Stars" and "Big Bang Theory" thought it still bested "Gossip Girl" by quite a bit. So I'm thinking that this is the series end.

    But what a setup for a movie! Superpower Chuck with Sarah and Casey, Awesome and Scott Bakula. And Jeffster! Or a great new season.

    The best review not only for it's take but of all the links to other reviews is The most enjoyable episode of TV of the year? Thoughts on the 'Chuck' finale by Maureen Ryan in the Chicago Tribune.

    It was awesome and I died laughing when Jeffster came on stage. I love this show too much. After it was over my wife screamed "they better renew it!!" I agree.

    I actually think it has a better then 50-50 shot of getting renewed for a couple reasons:
    1) It's cheap to make and the sets are already built. There is very little in terms of special effects.
    2) While it's ratings aren't all the great, for NBC it's not bad at all.

    The monkey wrench in all that is that Leno will eat up 5 hours a week of primetime which means that NBC will have 5 less shows on it's schedule. Chuck needs a new night though. Maybe pair it up with the comedy's on Thursday? The Office and whatever leading into Chuck at 9. I think that would be a good pairing.

    I thought it was great, and even though there's a chance we won't see the conclusion, I loved seeing "To Be Continued..." at the end. I really do hope NBC renews it or someone else picks it up. At the least, I'll take a straight to DVD 2 hour movie conclusion.

    I'm in agreement, it was one of the best episodes of Chuck. Jeffster was awesome and the setup for whatever is next is perfect. The technical skills of Orion and the physical skills from the new intersect, I can't wait! If NBC doesn't renew, I really hope someone does. Maybe USA? Either way its one of my can't miss shows and one of the best wrote shows of the past couple years.

    RENEW CHUCK...

    I agree 100% with everyone else, it was possibly the best episode yet - and that is REALLY saying something if you ask me! I don't know if I just like it so much because I am, and always have been, a tech geek or if that's why it's not as popular with others but I sure hope it comes back for another season (or two or three)!

    If it does come back I'm curious how they will bring Morgan back into it. I figured Chuck would end up with the intersect back in his head, I didn't imagine it would be a super-powered one though - that was (dare I say it) AWESOME!

    RENEW CHUCK....RENEW CHUCK....RENEW CHUCK...

    To me that was one of the best episodes, of any show, for a long time.

    RENEW CHUCK!!!

    I'm not hopeful for a Chuck return .. But I would definitely watch it if it did.

    Well, I finally watched this episode and it was great.

    Although I'm not sure I like the idea of Super Chuck..... that's going to eliminate some of the charm of the show.

    If Chuck (the show) dies, then Chuck (the man) can live on in our minds as Super Chuck .. If Chuck (the show) lives, then Chuck (the man) will almost certainly not be as powerful as the last episode made him out to be ....

    Either way, if the show returns, it's been set up to have a reboot anyway. Buy More is out, Awesome/Ellie are out, Chuck is Super-Chuck .. It was a feel good episode, but if they come back either Chuck wakes up from a dream and they are back to "normal" or the show will not be the same anyway.

    How in the world could you have Chuck (the show) without Morgan, Awesome and Ellie? Oh, and Jeffster?

    I don't see Awesome and Ellie out, what with a potential larger role for dear old dad. The Buy More characters may be gone, or maybe more peripheral like when "House" rebooted with a new crew.

    The season finale was flawless minus the super chuck scene, I hope they renew it (sans super!)

    CNN's web site has a great article on the "Save Chuck" movement with interesting links.
