Added DiffLines:

* BreakoutCharacter: Despite the series suffering from a bit of ArcFatigue around Season 4, reception to Alexei Volkoff and Timothy Dalton's portrayal of him is often highlighted as a ''series'' high. He is easily the show's most famous villain and go-to excuse to re-watch it.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The third and fourth seasons have suffered somewhat from pacing issues, most of which can be attributed to the network holding off on ordering anything beyond the initial thirteen episodes until well after they are plotted out (which is why the thirteenth episodes of both seasons are {{wham episode}}s; they were also designed to be {{Grand Finale}}s meant to end the show). The third season, while picked up, was given an additional six episodes as opposed to the standard nine, and as such required some condensation of the arc storyline into a shorter season. The fourth season had the opposite treatment, where it was been given an additional eleven episodes as opposed to the standard nine. While the awkward pacing might be bad news, one of the results was that Chuck and Sarah end up together at the end of "Chuck vs. The Other Guy", one of the show's 4 non-finalies. Viewers would be treated to Chuck and Sarah as an BattleCouple for the rest of the show's run.

** Chuck's comment to Sarah, after she gives him a faked photograph of the two at Comic Con dressed as [[Film/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.
** The first season featured Bryce Larkin engaging in a bit of SuperDickery, as he got Chuck kicked out of Stanford [[spoiler:to protect him from being recruited into the CIA against his will.]] Matthew Bomer was not only a contender for playing the role of the [[{{Superman}} the poster child]] for Super Dickery, but would go on to voice him in an [[WesternAnimation/SupermanUnbound animated film]] six years later. And who got the role of Superman over Mr. Bomer? Brandon Routh, who would join ''Chuck'' as Daniel Shaw in the third season.

** 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. His graceful acceptance of Sarah's rejection also certainly did not hurt with the Chuck/Sarah shippers, handily averting DieForOurShip.

** Daniel Shaw. [[FanDumb Some fans]] saw him as a knockoff of Bryce Larkin written in to cover Matt Bomer leaving to do ''WhiteCollar'', and not much else. Ignore his almost completely different relationships with all of the characters. And his FaceHeelTurn.
