Chuck S01E03 (NBC)

This is the first show of the series Chuck to use it’s normal intro and song by Cake.

Chuck is set a challenge by Big Mike. He has to complete it to become assistant manager. Harry Tang doesn’t make things easier for him. Meanwhile Casey, Sarah and Chuck are hunting for an elusive arms dealer code named La Ciudad. Morgan is acting like a third wheel in Chuck’s relationship with Sarah. Ellie, Chuck’s sister, thinks that Sarah really likes him. Chuck is surprised to hear this.

Chuck’s team at BuyMore comes through for him. Chuck is successful at tango, thanks to Devon. I enjoyed this episode. Once again, the nerd is actually doing not so badly in his first mission. There is more going on between Sarah and Chuck than we though. Chuck’s abilities as the intersect are helping out national security. I recommend Chuck, it’s a good show.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
