Third episode of "Chuck" has the title character on his first assignment
9 October 2007 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In this, the third episode of "Chuck", the title character is sent on his first spy mission: go to a cocktail party with Sarah to find a killer of someone who deals in paintings. He's also up for a promotion for assistant manager at Buy More. Agent John Casey, who works with Chuck at Buy More, asks if he knows how to tango. Chuck takes lessons from his sister Ellie's boyfriend, "Captain Awesome". He later finds out he got taught the girl's side. Chuck's Buy More co-worker and friend Morgan offers to help with the Nerd Herd in working with some computers left over from Chuck's rival for promotion, Tang. Unfortunately, he gets locked from inside and is stuck since Chuck, who's at his assignment at this point, has the key. Chuck dances with a woman at the party who turns out to be an assassin. Things start to get hairy for Chuck but Sarah and John are on the way...I don't think I completely got the plot but I enjoyed many of the fight scenes that John and Sarah got into. And when those goons went in Buy More looking for Chuck, I loved the way John beat one of them with a microwave just as he was going to shoot Chuck and the way John beat the other one into refrigerators before putting him into a large ice box! Also loved the exchanges between Sarah and Chuck as to what he'd do if they were on an actual date. The actor playing Morgan may need to dial it down a bit but otherwise this was a good episode.
