Chuck S01E09 (NBC) Chuck Versus The Imported Hard Salami

Chuck is an American science-fiction television program created by Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak. The series is about an “average computer-whiz-next-door” who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend Bryce Larkin, a rogue CIA agent, which happens to embed the world’s greatest spy secrets into his brain. This is called the intersect.

From the Wikipedia entry on Chuck.

While Chuck has to deal with his new situation, he gets to enjoy the company of Sarah, working for the CIA, and Casey, working for the DOD. They use him as an asset to accomplish their missions, which surprisingly happen around town (?).

I’ve really started enjoying Chuck. I enjoy the duality between Chuck’s spy life and the everyday Chuck. I also enjoy the strange soap operatic drama at the BuyMore. Morgan has become a lot funnier over the last few episodes.

In this episode, Chuck has to deal with the fallout of his fake break-up with Sarah. He’s already dating, but Chuck will hit a few snags along the way. Morgan is dealing with his own problems at the BuyMore. Chuck can’t really help him there. The episode ends with a surprising revelation.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.
