Amusing and full of action series with sympathetic and attractive actors : Zachary Levi , Yvonne Strahovski and many others
7 December 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Since geeky and underachieving Chuck , full name is Charles Irving Bartowski (Zachary Levi) 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 two top agents, Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) from CIA and John Casey (Adam Baldwin) from NSA to protect Chuck , and all of them become involved in fantastic and dangerous adventures . Meanwhile , his identity must be kept secret from Chuck's sister Ellie Bartowski (Sarah Lancaster) , her good-looking boyfriend Devon (Ryan McPartlin) , both surgeons , and Chuck's goofy colleagues (Joshua Gómez , Mark Christopher Lawrence , Vik Sahay , Julia Ling) in a bustling shop called Buy More , the Burbank electronics store where he works as a cover . As he works in ¨Buy More¨ who sells the latest home electronics sharing good moments along with other offbeat and peculiar characters .

This splendid series packs thrills , adventures , including mystery , twisted plots and full of action packed fighting . The series formed by 91 episodes with 5 seasons and with its fifth season becoming its final season , beginning October 28, 2011, and ending on January 27, 2012, with a two hour finale . The main premise is the following : an ordinary underdog guy named Chuck gets an email from his old college friend Bryce Larkin he opens it to see a series of pictures called the intersect which has all of the governments most vital secrets ; as Chuck has to find a way to save the day , using the intersect of course but sometimes the help of friends . Zachary Levi gives a very good and sympathetic interpretation as a computer nerd for the Buy More who discovers dark secrets when inadvertently downloads critical government information turning his life upside down . In spite of the successful series Zachary Levi has played a mediocre career as Television : Heroes Reborn , Deadbeat , Falling for You , Let it go , Tiny commando and Cinema he played Fandral in Thor : The Dark World (2013) . Two agents are assigned to guard Chuk , Yvonne Strahovski as Sarah and Adam Baldwin as John Casey , both of whom often get involved with him in spy adventures . Zachari Levi/Chuck creates a stunning chemical with his colleague the gorgeous Yvonne Strahovski as Sarah and both of whom fall in love . Support cast is frankly well , filled with familiar faces such as : Christopher Lloyd , Brandon Routh , Kristen Krouk , Tony Todd , Bruce Boxleiner ,Rachel Bilson , Robin Givens , Chevy Chase , Dolph Lundgren , Summer Glau , Ray Wise , Linda Hamilton as Chuck's mom and Gary Cole as Sarah's dad and several others ; besides , Matt Bomer and Tim DeKay had recurring roles . Natalie Martinez intervened in various episodes as well as Jordana Brewstwer as Chuch's first girlfriend . And Bonita Friedericy as General Beckman after appearing in the vast majority of episodes from seasons one through three , was finally made a regular cast member in season four . The series was well directed by a nice assortment of filmmakers such as : Robert Duncan McNeill , Jay Chandrasekhar , Jeremiah S. Chechik , Michael Schultz , Patrick Norris , Paul Marks , Norman Buckley and Zachary Levi himself directed 3 episodes (2010-2011) .
