Chuck Versus the Fake Name S03E08 (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. Kristin Kreuk finally leaves and Casey gets too snipe a bad guy from a long way off.

Chuck and Hannah are discovered by Ellie. Meanwhile, Shaw and Sarah are out on a date. Actually, it’s an op to capture some über assassin named Rafe Gruber who was hired by the Ring. Shaw wants Chuck to assume Gruber’s identity.

At the BuyMore, Hannah and Chuck are all over each other. The BuyMore is getting ready for a Crockpot special.

Chuck and Casey meet some mafia guys. Casey gets made. Chuck has to improvise. He has to mock-torture Casey and live the lie. Sarah and Shaw storm the place posing as feds. Sarah tells Chuck to live the lie. He breaks out the mafia guys and they will reconvene.

During, the mission, Chuck flashes on Jack Corburn. This must be his alias or Casey’s real name.

Sarah and Shaw have to cook the dinner that Chuck had promised Ellie and Hannah. Sarah is spying on them and then leaves.

Naturally, Rafe breaks out of his bonds while being transported away for further interrogation.

The wiseguys show up at the BuyMore to give Chuck a Rolex. They want him to take out Shaw. Sarah tells Shaw that her real name is Sam. Chuck sees them kiss through the scope.

He has to go over there to deal with Shaw. They don’t know that the real Gruber is about to arrive. He took out the wiseguys. Gruber is about to kill all of them. They are saved by Casey, who shoots Gruber between the eyes from 5 miles away.

Chuck breaks up with Hannah while Sarah hooks up with Shaw.
