Cast / crew
Chuck isn’t just a computer geek working for Buy More superstores: he’s also a critical CIA / NSA asset who has in his memory all the United States’ secrets. Unwittingly. By accident. Which is inconvenient.
Slight but charming spy caper.With the exception of the fairly strong, if largely bloodless and injury-free, violence, this feels like a children’s spy show. In fact, as much as I like Zachary Levi as Chuck, it would probably make more sense if Chuck was a child. The problem with the show is the premise; it never makes any sense (the whole Intersect in his brain thing and the fact that every major crim in the world parades through Los Angeles just so Chuck can identify them). However, the stars and characters are fine, Zachary Levi is terrific and the show has a simple charm that makes it nice to watch. So while it’s not exactly good, I have enjoyed it and that’s rather more important.
This Chuck episode contains mild swear words, adult dialogue and occasional strong violence and occasional sexuality.
