Trivia

In Chuck's room there is a poster for Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest (1959). In that film, the lead character finds himself inadvertently working for the government as an amateur spy, chased by a criminal organization and protected by a blond female spy. See more »

Goofs

(at around 2 mins) When Chuck and Sarah walks to the club, Casey and his team is in an SUV. When he cocks his gun, you can see that there is no clip in the handle. The reason for this is that the magazine is a post ban version able to hold no more than 10 rounds, instead of the 14-15 rounds. In order to use the same type of magazine they are hollowed out at the bottom appearing as non existent magazine. See more »

Pilot episode of Chuck should provide enough excitement for another NBC hit
26 September 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just saw the pilot for the new hour-long spy series "Chuck". It has a pretty amusing premise: The title character played by Zachary Levi lives with his sister and her boyfriend. This sister (Sarah Lancaster who I remember from "Everwood" as Madison) tries to get her brother to date again after a long-ago breakup he hadn't gotten over. Also hanging around is best friend and fellow worker in the Nerd Herd of Buy More, Morgan (Joshua Gomez). Then one day, Chuck gets an e-mail from his old college roommate Brice Larkin (Matthew Bomer) who's not an accountant as Chuck thought but a spy who gets killed before sending his message. Suddenly, Chuck has images in his mind. And a woman named Sarah (Yvonne Strzechowski) and a man named John (Adam Baldwin) start appearing in Chuck's store...This was a pretty fast-paced and humorous start for what I'm sure will be a clever and exciting new action series for NBC and should attract many Heroes fans (like me) wanting to watch something as entertaining while waiting. Should be another hit for the Peacock network! Directed by McG (Charlie's Angels and Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle).
