Chuck vs the Cat Squad - Charlie's C.A.T.S.

Just in time for Valentine's day comes another installment of 'The Women of Chuck,' the recurring excuse to have hot guest stars kick ass -- and this time multiplied by three. Leading up to what's bound to be a wedding finale, we get the rare Sarah back story, this time the Charlie's Angelsesque C.A.T. Squad, featuring the return of the Carina (Mini Anden), and the additions of Mercedes Masöhn and Episodes' Mircea Monroe as the other 'cats.' They obviously had a lot of fun lampooning Charlie's Angels (or, perhaps D.E.B.S. or even Exposé) and it proved to an acceptable diversion, possibly even introducing another episode arc-worthy baddie in the C.A.T.S. nemisis played by Lou Diamond Phillips.

Besides the C.A.T. Squad fight theme of Franz Ferdinand's "Turn it On," "Chuck vs the Cat Squad" utilized the new release from Telekinesis, 12 Desperate Straight Lines, closing the episode with The Cure-like "Please Ask For Help," a song I haven't been able to get out of my head since I first heard it a couple weeks ago.
