But I figure that several characters were named in reference to action movies. Bale, for Christian Bale of Batman fame; Jean-Claude, for Jean-Claude Van Damme, and Stark, for Tony Stark/Ironman.

They were a little soft in this department, weren't they? They're always a little off with this show in the premieres. It's like they try to cram in too much table-setting every year, and it always seems to mess up the balance of what I expect from Chuck.
I'm surprised how little pop culture references were in the premiere. (I don't think just having actors from Star Wars and Star Trek count as references.)

It really reminded me of the "Jaynestown" episode, when Adam Baldwin's character Jayne has a statue of himself on a planet, and one of the character's had the same line about the eyes following her around. I'd like to think they made it obvious with Adam being the one to say the line.
Oh, yea, and the Indy reference. I half-jumped off the couch shouting "That's from Indiana Jones!" when it happened.

Ha! Thanks for confirming. When he said that I thought, "That's probably true".
Awesome made a reference in last night's ep to the fact that Ryan McPartlin used to be an Abercrombie and Fitch model.

The DC Universe's "Fastest Man Alive," The Flash, has an arch-nemesis who calls himself Professor Zoom -- aka The Reverse Flash. Same powers, but twisted and evil.
If it was intentional on the part of Schwartz, Fedak et al, it's brilliant. If it was unintentional... hell, that's even MORE brilliant.

Was the brothers' last name spelled 'Sneijder'? If so, little brother Wesley was, unusually, a soccer reference.
I just commented on the episode thread about this because it looked like no one got that (understandable for you Americans ;-) ).
And yeah, it was spelled Sneijder.

If you mean the one hanging by the kitchen, it's a "Titans" promo poster that DC sent out to comic shops a few years back. The poster features the then-current (2008) incarnations of the original "New Teen Titans" roster when that title launched in 1980.
I saw a poster with "Flash" on it in Chuck's apartment, but I'm not sure what it was.

Lost reference: the closeup on Sarah's eye opening when she's falling.
