Chuck Versus The Lethal Weapon - Critical Response

Critical Response

"Chuck Versus the Lethal Weapon" received positive reviews from critics. Steve Heisler of The A.V. Club gave the episode a B-, concluding, "Look, the show is still a lot of fun to watch (loved Jeff's sweaty almost-embrace of Anna, and Chuck's inadvertent dance when his leg gets caught in the window, among other things), and this new Orion angle—the creator of the Intersect, who might be able to get it out of Chuck's head—shows promise, particularly the fact that Chuck has been conducting his own little research in private (putting his findings on the back of his Tron poster). But please, enough with the repetition. "

Eric Goldman of IGN gave the episode an 8.2 out of 10, writing that he was initially disappointed by Chuck's first use of a gun. Goldman enjoyed the reveal of Chuck's chart on the back of his Tron poster, concluding, "This reveal that Chuck is not idly standing by but has actually been actively keeping track of his now-crazy life is a great little twist."

Viewer response was also positive, with an 9/10 user rating at TV.com. The episode drew 5.796 million viewers.

Famous quotes containing the words critical and/or response:

    Post-modernism has cut off the present from all futures. The daily media add to this by cutting off the past. Which means that critical opinion is often orphaned in the present.
    John Berger (b. 1926)

    It does me good to write a letter which is not a response to a demand, a gratuitous letter, so to speak, which has accumulated in me like the waters of a reservoir.
    Henry Miller (1891–1980)
