    Don't know if anyone watches "Chuck" on NBC but agent Shaw just drove off in a black Roadster :cool:

    I suspected when it pulled away quietly and knew it was a Roadster when he stopped under the underpass and you could see the distinctive taillights. Video should be available tomorrow on hulu.

    Was it just me or did they add revving sound effects (when it was going full speed)?

    I didn't notice that, just an electric motor whine. Maybe they jazzed it up.

    Definitely a Roadster! but didn't sound quite right...
    Judging by the show's end, sure looks like it'll back next week :) :)

    For anyone not interested in watching the entire episode, but just curious about the Roadster (and the awfully hokie sounds added) -- mutiple scenes between 25:15 and 30:40 (out of 43:11), and a final scene with ridiculous "sports car noise" at the end at 42:10.

    By the way, I saw that same license plate on a different car in the show "Flash Forward", so "Hollywood" must have used some studio/dummy plates on the Roadster.

    Yeah, they have them in the "transpo" Dept or props. They are plastic or cardboard and stick on with double sided tape.

    Wonder what would come up if you did a DMV check?
