In its superb second season, NBC's "Chuck" offers a more fully developed and unique blend of comedy, action, and romance. Chuck Bartkowski continues his double life: slacker computer nerd at an LA big box electronics store by day and inept government agent by night, thanks to the secret government database called the Intersect emplanted in his brain. Beautiful CIA agent Sarah Walker is Chuck's handler and bodyguard, with a cover as his girlfriend. Hardnosed NSA assassin Major John Casey teams with Walker to track Chuck's safety 24 hours a day and to pursue the bad guys the Intersect enables Chuck to identify.
This second season advances several themes over the course of the year. The impromptu team of Walker, Casey, and Bartkowski get increasingly difficult assignments to stop various villains and foil their nefarious plots, in which the untrained Chuck begins to demonstrate, often hilariously, the potential to muddle through as an agent.
Chuck is one of those absolute delights where you sit down and marvel at how such a fantastic show has survived only by the fans. Season one was entertaining and introducing all the characters while giving a taste of what this show can bring. Season two, is season one but done so expertly. Going from a 13 episode S1 to a 22 episode S2 can be daunting, but here I am sitting down and watching season two doing long form storytelling better than modern shows. They usually break up a mini story arc over four episodes, and each arc builds upon the one before it, which makes the ending of this season feel epic.
Season 2 still brings the great comedy, action, and character balances that all fans will love. You learn more about Sarah and Casey's backstories. The guest stars bring their A-game when they come on, and they actually leave a presence for the whole season. If you're a chuck fan you'll only be delighted to hear that season 2 is a perfect version of S1.
I am absolutely in love with this show. I've finished all 5 seasons twice over now and my only regret is that it had to come to an end. Will I watch it again? Simply, yes. The show is cheesy and corny at times, but I love that. The hopeless romanticism and the theatrical fight/shooting scenes are what make this show so love-able. The characters and the actors themselves are so perfect, relatable, and just all around unforgettable. If you haven't watched Chuck, watch it. If you have, watch it again. I don't think I'll ever get enough of this show. Be prepared to get angry, sad, happy, and just teeter on the edge of your seat with this series.
