Chuck vs the Couch Lock: Dumpster Diving

Guess what? There was no Chuck/Sarah relationship issue of the week and it was my favorite episode of this season so far. Coincidence? It didn't hurt that we got more John Casey backstory (he was the A-Team) and just enough of Jeffster to get a chuckle ("We've woken up in some of the best dumpsters in town").

As for the music, while most got a kick out of the use of Oingo Boingo's "Dead Man's Party" during the funeral (groan), I was more interested in the Fleetwood Mac cover by Mates of State ("Second Hand News") as we got to hear the immortal words of Lindsey Buckingham: "Won't you lay me down in tall grass
and let me do my stuff?"
