What? You thought he was DEAD?
Over the past two weeks, "Chuck" has become an embarrassment of riches for fans of Ryan McPartlin's Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb, who is no longer just a convenient punchline for his ripped abs and his boundless enthusiasm.
Calling Captain Awesome the new heart of "Chuck" would be an overstatement, but he had been a key lynchpin for the main character's transition from "Stay in the Car, Chuck" Chuck to a proactive fledgling spy. When I originally reviewed the start of the "Chuck" season, I expressed particular pleasure in the two-part Devon mini-arc and I still feel that way after watching the episode, even though very little in "Chuck vs. Operation Awesome" actually made any sense.
