Storyline

Since geeky Chuck 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 a top agent to guard Chuck, and often get involved with him in spy adventures. Meanwhile his identity must be kept secret from Chuck's sister, her perfect partner Devon, both surgeons, and Chuck's goofy colleagues in Buy More, the Burbank electronics store where he works as a cover.

Trivia

At the close of the second season, declining ratings, and stiff competition from the other networks, had indicated that Chuck would be cancelled. But, due to petitioning from its loyal fan base, specifically aimed at one of its sponsors (Subway), the show was renewed for a third season, in an unprecedented partnership between NBC and the sandwich chain helping to cover the production costs. Chuck continued to face cancellation for its subsequent seasons, with its fifth season becoming its final season, beginning October 28, 2011, and ending on January 27, 2012, with a two hour finale.

Quotes

Chuck Bartowski: Excuse me. I'm sorry, General. But who in my life *isn't* a spy? My sister? My best friend? Should I just start asking people when I first meet them, "Hi I'd like the extra value meal, and while we're on the topic, do you covertly work for a government faction?"

A Brilliant mixture of Action, Romance and Comedy
19 February 2009 | by travismarkbrooksSee all my reviews

In my line of work, I get very little time to sit down and enjoy something on the TV, or especially become enthralled in a TV series - until Chuck.

From the first episode, back when we were first introduced to the individually zany Chuck, right up to present day 2 seasons down the line - Every episode is a whirlwind of emotion, with the action of the plot, mixed with the comedy of the 3 bantering and finally the intermittent cover relationship which we all have our own opinions about.

It's been a long time since I set something aside and looked forward to it every single week - and to this day have never been disappointed by it!!!

BRAVO CHUCK!!
