Since geeky Chuck accidentally became the mental host of the Intersect, an unprecedentedly powerful computer mind containing all information available to the US government, he's a primordial national security asset and risk. So CIA and NSA each appoint a top agent to guard Chuck, and often get involved with him in spy adventures. Meanwhile his identity must be kept secret from Chuck's sister, her perfect partner Devon, both surgeons, and Chuck's goofy colleagues in Buy More, the Burbank electronics store where he works as a cover.

A good many references are made to the movie Spies Like Us
(1985). The bug used in several episodes is called a GLG-20, which is the designation given to undercover operatives in the movie. Emmett Millbarge is named after the two main characters in the movie, first name taken from Chevy Chase
's Emmett Fitzhume, and last name taken from Dan Aykroyd
's Austin Millbarge; this is also the order they are introduced in the film. In an episode, Chuck poses as a doctor and references a scene from the movie where doctors go through greeting each other by saying "Doctor, Doctor". Chevy Chase has a guest role in the show. In the movie, one of the actors playing the Tadzhik Highway Patrolman has the name Costa Gavras and the name of the communist state featured in "Chuck Versus the Angel of Death" has the name Costa Gravas. Also while Chuck and Sarah are watching TV, Spies Like Us comes on, and Sarah comments "not again". See more
During the intro of every episode, the gun visible fires a cartridge, complete with case/shell, instead of just dispensing a bullet. See more
