The reviews are in on Kristin's debut on last night's episode of CHUCK from the critics...and thus far they're ALL positive!
"Smallville’s Kristin Kreuk pulled out welcome acting chops as a super-cute, incredibly likable, so-wonderful-and-fresh-she-can’t-possibly-do-dirty-things-like-go-to-the-bathroom, potential girlfriend for Chuck. Bring on the love triangle! But is she all that she appears to be? Bring on the theories!"
"One of the best things in the show was Kristin Kreuk as Hannah, the nice girl from first class. I don't know her from Smallville, but I thought she was great here. And, fortunately, Chuck did not flash when he met her. She didn't trigger any connection to evil, so I'm hoping that Hannah will be something Chuck hasn't had for a long time -- an attainable woman. The fact that she turned up at the Burbank Buy More at the close was very promising."
From National Post:
"The more intriguing stuff for my money, though, is the interaction between Chuck and Hannah (Smallville's Kristin Kreuk), who is revealed to be similar to Chuck in that her life is underwhelming at this point, having just been fired from her own IT job for a mysterious private financier... I think Kreuk has a disarming screen presence, and if she brings out the theme of hope in the face of uncertainty for Chuck even more, all the better."
"Mmm Kristin Kreuk – what a hottie and the latest guest star on CHUCK this week.
I always loved her on SMALLVILLE and actually stopped watching when she left consequently. Good thing she is still smoking hot after being the shelf from TV for a few years...
...It would be interesting to see if she sticks around as it might be a good storyline for her to become some sort of a regular and give the show a different side. They certainly do have a bit of chemistry and like I said it would break up the monotony of the same ole we’ve seen for three years."
From NJ Star Ledger:
"Second, though I was never much impressed by her during the brief period when I cared about "Smallville," I thought Kristin Kreuk fit in very nicely here, and had good chemistry with Zachary Levi."
From LA Times:
"Here's hoping that the tight plotting of the episode, combined with the great character moments (particularly between Chuck and Hannah, whom I'm already a little in love with) will bode well for the rest of the season to come."
"Before everything went to hell, Chuck met Hannah on the plane, who was something of a dream girl for our hero – beautiful and as much of a computer geek as he is. Kristin Kreuk plays Hannah and I'd say so far, so good, as she was appropriately charming and appealing during this episode, giving perhaps the most charismatic performance of her career thus far."
