** To the point that the show could be described as a Scrappy Rehabilitation Facility, with TelevisionWithoutPity once [[LampshadeHanging lampshading]] the fact that ''Chuck'' frequently takes actors who were mishandled on [[Series/LawAndOrder other]] [[Series/{{Smallville}} series]] and makes them, in a word, [[http://www.televisionwithoutpity.com/show/chuck/chuck_actors_who_should_leave.php awesome]].

** Chuck's comment to Sarah, after she gives him a faked photograph of the two at Comic Con dressed as [[ReturnOfTheJedi Han Solo and Slave!Leia]] in "Chuck Versus the Sand Worm",, that they've never actually been to Comic Con. Over the next few years, the Chuck panels at Comic Con would go on to be considered highlights of the event.

* Ryan McPartlin (aka "Captain Awesome") and Yvonne Strahovski stared in LEGO's first TVMovie, Film/LEGOTheAdventuresOfClutchPowers. Fast forward four years and LEGO's first theatrical feature, Film/TheLEGOMovie, is released. What's that movie's theme song? "Everything is Awesome."

** Cole Barker, while not a very prominent character, easily steals the episodes he's in thanks to being a charismatic, badass, JerkWithAHeartOfGold and UndyingLoyalty. Being part of MI6 and a heroic British character after initially appearing to be a typical EvilBrit also help that.

Being part of MI6 and a heroic British character after initially appearing to be a typical EvilBrit also help that. His graceful acceptance of Sarah's rejection also certainly did not hurt with the Chuck/Sarah shippers, handily averting DieForOurShip.



** Ellie's [[spoiler:then-]]boyfriend, [[spoiler:now-husband]], Captain Awesome, was suppose to be revealed as an enemy spy for Fulcrum at the end of the first season. However, he became this, and his character was rewritten to a genuine NiceGuy

** Alexei Volkoff, for Creator/{{Timothy Dalton}}'s deliciously hammy performance and for being CrazyAwesome, was embraced by fans and critics alike.

** The quality of Season 3, especially in comparison to Season 2, is a point of contention among the fans:
*** Some viewers find the third season is a step-up from the second season as well, in part because some of the story arc planned for Season 1 had to be stretched out across Season 2. However others feel Season 3 is much less even; the visual effects budget was noticeable lower (compare the air strike in "Chuck Versus the Colonel" -- generally considered the show's best effects sequence -- to the one in "Chuck Versus the American Hero"), many fans missed Anna's presence (Julia Ling was not retained due to budget cuts), Shaw's reception was mixed at best, several serious continuity issues arose (particularly with Casey's back story, which doesn't fit with what was established about him prior to that reveal), and the handling of the Season 2/3 transition, ''especially'' the reset button on Chuck and Sarah's relationship, were all points of contention. Many fans tired of the Ring arc and missed the occasional stand-alone missions from Season 2, and some found the Ring far less interesting than Fulcrum altogether. The rushed plotline of the "back six" episodes, combined with several weak episodes in the first half, also contributed to many fans feeling that Season 2 was the show's high point.
*** About the one thing fans ''do'' agree on in this regard, is that Seasons 4 and 5 were progressively the weakest in the series.

* AesopAmnesia: After Chuck and Sarah ''finally'' become a couple in the middle of season 3, the first episode afterwards has them learning they need to ''actually communicate with each other'' in a relationship. Over the course of the following two seasons, the writers went back to this well ''far'' too often, with it seemingly being their go-to plot for Chuck[=/=]Sarah relationship angst.
