Chuck Versus The First Date S02E01 (NBC)

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 (?).

Chuck has just started its second season and it’s still entertaining. The mix between an everyday guy and espionage doesn’t get boring, since the character of Chuck actually puts us in these situations as well. I recommend it, though it’s not for everybody.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

This was a good episode. Chuck is back to what he is used to doing. He will not be able to face his future until he no longer is the Intersect. I wonder if this show will actually move from its initial setting. Following Chuck back to college might be interesting and the Buy More will get annoying after a few years. Still, the show looks good and Yvonne Strahovski is as hot as ever.

Chuck is suspended upside down. He tells a big black guy that he has the cipher. Casey and Sarah arrive to save him. The big black dude gets away. The cipher is the artificial brain of the new intersect computer. The general says that tomorrow Operation Bartowski will be over then. They won’t need him anymore.

Casey is told that he needs to kill Chuck.

Sarah tells Chuck that he can do anything. He shouldn’t just settle for the BuyMore. Chuck walks into the bathroom and sees his sister with Devon in the shower. He tells his sister that he should change jobs and get a career. She’s proud of him. At the Buy More, he thanks Casey. Big Mike tells Chuck that he is going to be the assistant manager. Chuck tells Morgan that he didn’t take the job. He gets to interview and recommend someone of the store.

Sarah is working at a yogurt shop now. There is no Wienerlicious. He asks her out. He manages to convince her. There is a nice shot of Yvonne Strahovski getting ready. She”s got a nice ass. She doesn’t take a gun on her date. Casey is practicing his marksmanship. He can’t hit Chuck’s photo.

Chuck tells his sister that he wants to finish school. Morgan shows up with Call of Duty plans. Casey delivers the cipher to the wrong delivery man. He loses the cipher. He gets gassed. The big black dude is pulling the strings. He has his sights set on Chuck and Sarah.

Chuck gives Sarah a few compliments. Sarah tells Chuck that he’s fantastic. Casey manages to inject himself with adrenaline and survives. When Chuck gets ready to kiss Sarah, he spots a bunch of secret agent assassins ready to do them in. They are surrounded. The big black dude is there. His name is Mr. Colt. He wants Chuck to come with him. Casey arrives with his Crown Vic. They get away.

The next day, Chuck hasn’t slept a wink. He’s like a zombie throughout the day. The interviews are a joke. Casey walks in. Chuck flashes on Casey’s bruise. His bruise sports a scar in the shape of Colt’s ring. It’s the emblem of their secret organization. He knows where they are hiding. Casey is acting strange. He’s trying to tell him that Chuck is going to die if the new intersect comes online. Casey gets Sarah. They leave Chuck. Chuck put Morgan in charge of finding the new assistant manager. Morgan puts in a Thunderdome.

Big Mike sends Chuck out to a Nerd Herd call. The tac team arrives at the location. There is nothing there. Colt is waiting for Chuck. Chuck pulls a bluff and gets away with the cipher. Colt catches up with Chuck and is about to drop him from the roof. He does so when Sarah arrives. Casey grabs Chuck like some kind of a freerunner. Sarah is fitting Colt.
