Chuck Versus First Class S03E05 (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 third 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.

The third season started a bit strangely. Chuck has been training for a while, but it isn’t really working out. He’s not able to control the Intersect. Does anyone else think that this is like controlling the Force? Maybe Chuck should get some training from a Jedi Master to calm his nerdy and horny mind.

This was another good episode. The recap is a bit short, but hey, it’s better than nothing. There are a few annoying bits. I don’t really care about Chuck seducing other hotties than Sarah. It’s kind of hard to understand why a nerd would attract such hotties, but then again, I don’t mind seeing them on the screen.

Shaw is conducting a review of Operation Chuck. He says that Casey and Sarah have been holding him back. He’s going on his first solo mission.

On the way to Paris, Chuck spots Stone Cold Steve Austin playing a Ring operative. Hugo Panzer is the operation, not Paris. Chuck has to retrieve a crypto-key that Panzer is going to deliver to Paris. He manages to fight off Panzer when he wakes up thanks to the Ring watch he was wearing. Chuck manages to retrieve the key and fight off Panzer.

Chuck also meets a hottie on the plane.

Morgan needs Casey’s help to make Lester and his minions obey his orders. Well, it’s more likely that they are continuously pulling pranks on Morgan. Lester is the only one who resists. Casey takes the opportunity to hypnotize Lester.

One of the air stewardesses poisons him. She pulls a gun on him. She wants the key. In the cargo hold, Panzer is waiting for him.

Shaw plans on taking control of the plane to help Chuck out. It’s just in time for him to get the antidote and to take his nunchucks. The bad guys have been taken out by baggage.

The crypto-key opens the lockbox in the golden briefcase. It’s intel on Ring.

The hottie from the plane shows up at the BuyMore.
