    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.

    Don't ask how or why, but it works
  4. The show remains a game mix of satire and sweetness--although Chuck still has better chemistry with his sister Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) than Sarah.

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

    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.
  7. Chuck starts the second season a little more confident, a little funnier. That's the right direction to be moving in.

    I have become a Chuck addict and I sometimes wish it was for real and happening to me except the sad parts where people is dying.

    Best show on TV right now. NBC should put it on Thur. nite--in ER's old time slot. Then CHUCK will get the recognition that it deserves.
