Second episode of "Chuck" improves on the first
3 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

With this, the second episode of "Chuck", the title character tries to keep a normal facade despite his now-frequent computer images planted in his brain. Agent Sarah now works at the Weinerlicious fast-food place next door in order to keep tabs on him. Agent John from another agency not associated with Sarah, now a co-worker with Chuck and his friend Morgan at Buy More, constantly warns him to stay away from her. A scientist contacted by both agents offers to examine Chuck's brain and later agrees to remove those images. As the doctor eventually drives away, an explosion happens...I'll stop right there and mention that the continuity from last week seemed almost seamless. I liked most everything that happened this episode like when a lot of young boys suddenly check into Weinerlicious to check out Sarah or the fights between her and John. And to see Ellie's boyfriend "Captain Awesome" get a first name, Devon. And how about Chuck's handling the helicopter finale! Many good stuff here though I found the dinner scene a little uncomfortable and perhaps too contrived for my tastes. And next week should be even more exciting with Chuck on his first official assignment. Hope the ratings are strong enough for NBC to keep "Chuck" going for the entire season.
