Chuck Versus The Break-Up S02E03 (NBC)

Exit sign at Le Nelligan

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 another good episode. Bryce comes to see Chuck. He makes Chuck realize that ever since Sarah has fallen in love with him, she isn’t doing her job well. Chuck has only got one choice. Break-up with with über-blonde hottie Sarah. Sounds dumb, but he does so anyway. The episode is about recuperating a microchip that has the covers of a lot of agents in it. Chuck is taking a more active role in the operations, which is good.
