Cast / crew
The CIA are finalising a new Intersect after which Chuck won’t be needed anymore. Won’t be needed alive, that is.
Chuck is a show that is getting by on charm. The dialogue is fine, the actors are terrific, but the plotting is endlessly awful. That said, the writers have done really well this season in maintaining interest in all the ancillary characters with every episode containing some kind of fun distraction at the Buy More. The full twenty-two episode length has made the already transparent formula verge on irritating as family, old girlfriends and old school rivals are unconvincingly dragged into the plots and Chuck whines and endangers almost every mission before saving the day that probably didn’t need to be saved before he blundered in. But, as I said before, the charm and fun is there and we are always suckers for a forbidden / doomed romance, especially when it’s portrayed so wonderfully by Zachary Levi and, particularly (because she has less dialogue and screen-time to work with), Yvonne Strahovski.
Chuck contains mild swear words, adult dialogue and strong melee violence, very unpleasant and gory scenes, graphic gun violence and sexuality.
