In its superb second season, NBC's "Chuck" offers a more fully developed and unique blend of comedy, action, and romance. Chuck Bartkowski continues his double life: slacker computer nerd at an LA big box electronics store by day and inept government agent by night, thanks to the secret government database called the Intersect emplanted in his brain. Beautiful CIA agent Sarah Walker is Chuck's handler and bodyguard, with a cover as his girlfriend. Hardnosed NSA assassin Major John Casey teams with Walker to track Chuck's safety 24 hours a day and to pursue the bad guys the Intersect enables Chuck to identify.

This second season advances several themes over the course of the year. The impromptu team of Walker, Casey, and Bartkowski get increasingly difficult assignments to stop various villains and foil their nefarious plots, in which the untrained Chuck begins to demonstrate, often hilariously, the potential to muddle through as an agent.

A second theme is the approaching wedding of Chuck's sister Ellie and her fiance "Captain Awesome." Chuck has rashly promised Ellie to track down their missing father for the wedding, a promise that will have a dramatic impact on the last episodes of the season.

A third theme is the rogue organization FULCRUM's pursuit of the Intersect. Chuck is in weekly danger of having his cover blown and either being kidnapped by FULCRUM or being sequestered for his own safety by the government in an underground bunker away from family and friends.

The fourth and perhaps most important theme is the slowly blossoming romance between Chuck and Sarah, as their affection for each other begins to strain Sarah's professionalism and Chuck's willingness to live under a cover story.

For me watching CHUCK at the beginning of each week increasingly became one of the high points of my TV watching week. If you can get past the rather silly premise for the show (and if you can, you have a real treat in store), that someone was able to have the entire contents of the CIA mainframe downloaded in his brain, you will discover one of the most entertaining and likable casts on TV. If you don't know CHUCK but are familiar with Josh Schwartz's previous series THE O.C., CHUCK is what that show would have been if you had isolated the Seth/Summer part of the show and made Seth a spy (I've read that Adam Brody, who played Seth, was originally asked to play Chuck, and Summer herself made an appearance in Season One as a potential love interest for our hero). Schwartz saved the Ryan/Marissa/Taylor part for GOSSIP GIRL. If the latter is all about the cool and hip, CHUCK is all about nerds and their universe. If the girls on wear their Jimmy Choos, Chuck wears Chuck T's.

But if you haven't seen the show, here is the main thing you need to know: all the spy stuff is secondary. The real reason to watch CHUCK is the comedy and the romance. The comedy comes from all directions: Chuck, his friend Morgan, the outrageous group of nuts who work at the Buy More store where Chuck has his day job, his NSA handler Casey, and, of course, Mr. Awesome. (I have a theory about Awesome. From various Season One episodes I think the original idea was for Chuck's sister Ellie (played by the gorgeous Sarah Lancaster) and her fiancé Devon aka Captain Awesome, played by the incredible Ryan McPartlin, to break up, creating some possible romantic tension between Ellie and Morgan. But I believe that they realized that Awesome was not, as they initially supposed, a disposable character.

Chuck is easily my favorite show on the air right now (and I love my television). Every episode leaves me desperate for more, and the second season has been especially excellent. They haven't been afraid of breaking the formula and actually letting things develop and change. That's one of the things that annoys me most about other shows -- writers show you what they want you to want and then draw that out for seasons and seasons on end. Bleh. But the writers of Chuck haven't and as such it is superb.

So, check it out. If you like comedy, romance, action, spies, great writing, and great acting, then you'll love Chuck.

Chuck is one of the most well written and entertaining shows on tv right now. It has action, drama, comedy, and romance packed into every hour. The cast is extremely likeable and you can tell they are enjoying what they are doing just as much as you enjoy watching them.
Chuck is great! Order this! Watch the show every week!! Let's get a third season for Chuck!!

This show is amazing... It's like "The Matrix" "Get Smart" "24" and "Friends" all put into a blender and mixed into the coolest, funniest, hippest Spy-Comedy-Action-Adventure show of all time. Actually has there ever been a show like it? I don't think so. It's not full of serious drama and heavy issues - it's not fine cuisine or a world class wine, but it's like having the best damn pizza & the best beer on tap you have ever had! "Chuck" is pure comfort - whatever crappy mood I am in I can always put a Chuck DVD in the player and instantly feel better.

Oh and the music is out of this world. Gnarls Barkley, Crooked Fingers, Bon Iver, et. all this show has a movie quality soundtrack!

You also get that feeling that either Zach Levi or Yvonne Strahovski are going break out in that major way eventually as movie stars or something else. Yvonne has got to be the most beautiful woman I have seen on television in two or three decades!

"Chuck" is destined to attain legendary status and it is fitting that it's NBC again, like 40 years ago with Trek they don't quite know what to do with a show that has a massive fan base but isn't quite exploding like it should. If NBC dumps it after 2 or 3 seasons, expect this to be looked back on in a decade or so as the 2nd biggest mistake in television history. :)
