  • Summary: The O.C. creator Josh Schwartz and director McG (We Are Marshall) bring us Chuck, a series laced with humor about young twenty-something spies.

    Zachary Levi (Less Than Perfect) plays Chuck Bartowski, a nerdy computer tech who has a database of government secrets downloaded into his brain.
    Chuck soon finds himself recruited by John Casey (Adam Baldwin), a veteran NSA Agent, for espionage work with his new partner (and first date in 10 years) Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) - leading Chuck to live a split life of computer geek and secret NSA missions. Expand

    Coming off eps with Dolph Lundgren, Lou Ferrigno, and yes, Nicole Richie, Dalton's arc proves that no other show since Alias has made smarter use of its guest stars. [5 Nov 2010, p.64]

    I love Chuck and this season is amazing with all the revelations about his family. I love the fact that Chuck and Sarah finally got married. Chuck and Sarah ftw Expand

    Chuck has a fresh start in season 4! The season premiere was great and much smoother and more mature than any other season. All the same people come back (i assume, from the opening credits) although you only see Ellie, Morgan, Sarah, Casey, and Chuck. I do hope Jeffster returns along with Awesome. Nevertheless, season 4 of chuck proves to be the best season yet. Expand

    Brilliant! Fantastic! The best show on tv. I love the Chuck and Morgan spywork. Love that General Beckman is running the Buy More. Things are looking very solid for season 4!!! Expand

    YES!!!!!! It still is a great show! I can't even summon the willpower necessary to turn off the TV or change the channel. Anyone who has that fundamental capability to even think of such a malicious deed, should be raped. Expand

    Although I'm a big fan of the show, this season seems weak in comparison. Much of the humor has left the show to be replaced by Mrs. Bartowski's every other episode character twists. I just hope the show will return to its more comedy oriented roots soon. Expand

    The show finally start taking some bad twists as really new development becomes hard to get. After 3 fantastic seasons where the highlights were obvious (the romance, the Chuck factor, the fun Buy More crew), season 4, while still very entertaining, starts to drag and for the first time has no main underlying plot. The complete season ends up being made of several small arcs that sometimes can be boring were not for how the characters are lovable. The main problem here is not season 4 itself, but that it's quite clear that from how it's getting harder and harder to introduce something new on this old formula, a 5th season was approved. When you watch the last minutes of the last episode of this, you will get it how lacking in story the 5th will be, since the cliffhanger was simple "throw" in the last minute as if producers didn't want it to get the 5th season approved.
    In my opinion, without watching the 5th season, this will be the last real worthy season.

    There hasn't been an episode from the beginning that I thought was funny, cute, well acted or had an interesting story line.
