Watching Chuck is tons of fun. It certainly isn’t a serious spy series. A lot of silliness happens. It is so different from anything on television that it earned itself such a huge fan following. So huge that it was a big player at Comic Con every year. Simple care free enjoyment that you can watch with a big smile on your face. Every episode.
Accidentally a computer nerd named Chuck Bartowski (played by Zachary Levi) who works at a Buy More store with his best friend Morgan Grimes (played by Joshua Gomez) downloads a program called the Intersect into his brain. What it does is make him the perfect spy. The CIA finds out about him and assigns two agents, Sarah Walker (played by Yvonne Strahovski) and John Casey (played by Adam Baldwin), to “protect” him. What happens is the three become the CIA’s best team of spies. During this time he has to keep what he really is secret from those closest to him like his sister Ellie (played by Sarah Lancaster) and brother-in-law Devon (played by Ryan McPartlin). To do so he keeps his cover by continuing to work at the Buy More.
This season Morgan has kind of joined the team as a spy and his mother (played by Linda Hamilton) has resurfaced. Tied into the return of his mother is the team going up against master villain Alexei Volkoff (played by Timothy Dalton). All this while Sarah and Chuck are trying to plan their upcoming wedding. Hard thing to fit into your life when you are also trying to save the world.
Keep eyes peeled for the ton of celebrity guests like Robert Englwood, Morgan Fairchild, Timothy Dalton, Richard Chamberlain, Olivia Munn, Dolph Lundgred, Linda Hamilton, Lou Ferrigno, Steve Austin, Eric Roberts, Dave Bautista, Nicole Richie, Gary Cole, John Laroquette, Lou Diamond Philips, and Ray Wise.
