    This year, there’s more to enjoy than the usual (and often funny) riffs on nerd culture and spy clichés. Chuck’s more assertive and seems to actually enjoy his secret-agent status.
  2. There are shows on television that are smarter than Chuck, deeper, more ambitious, whatever. At the moment, I can't think of one that's more fun.

    The new episodes quickly jump back in, with higher stakes and sharper jokes, and creator Josh Schwartz hasn't let the strike stop him from developing Chuck's character.

    This is pure kiddie fare; no big deal--Chuck's back; TV's a better place.

    Don't ask how or why, but it works
  6. The show remains a game mix of satire and sweetness--although Chuck still has better chemistry with his sister Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) than Sarah.
  7. Chuck starts the second season a little more confident, a little funnier. That's the right direction to be moving in.

    There aren't many shows on television that can combine comedy, action and romance as effectively as Chuck. The cast have a chemistry with one another which has rubbed off positively on the show and leaves viewers hungry for more. Expand

    This season improved dramatically over the first, but managed to keep the chuck charm. The show still continues to impress me with this season. I've never watched a show where i literally cared about every character. Expand

    The show has b, I d0n't want to say more of the same, but it kind of is. But don't regard that as a negative statement. It manages to keep me compelled with some unique touches in comedy. **** it's great Expand
