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).
