Chuck Season 3

With the Intersect 2.0 inside him Chuck is all set to become a super secret agent. Or is that secret super agent? If he can stop whining, that is.

2/10

Firstly, this is a season review based on the first four episodes but that is because they are so broken that they have put me off watching any more. Now Chuck has always featured a broken premise, broken plots and a lot of unconvincing peril but, until now, it’s always had an endearing goofy romantic charm. That’s gone. Chuck whines endlessly for the first four episodes and fluctuates between considered professional (he has been doing this for three years now) and reckless amateur. The writers have attempted to reset everything in the undercover plot and the Buy More plots (by shooting Tony Hale’s Emmett Milbarge in the eye; I didn’t like him but I certainly didn’t want to see that) and they failed to convince the audience to go with them. I’ll take a look at Season 4 to see if the endearing nature of the first two seasons has returned. (It does. Yay!)

Chuck contains mild swear words, adult dialogue and strong melee violence, very unpleasant and gory scenes, graphic gun violence and sexuality.
