  • Great start for season 2

    One of several new shows that came out of the gate strong and showed a ton of promise, only to get cut short by the writers' strike, Chuck returns for a second season. The problem so many of the series in Chuck's situation face (Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money among them) is re-introducing them to potential new fans, since they didn't have a full season to build an audience, and on top of that have been gone for so many months. The solution Chuck co-creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak came up with is perhaps a bit clunky, but it works – The opening scene has Chuck lay out who he is to a very imposing man (Michael Clark Duncan) holding him off the side of the building.
    All this, plus Schwartz and Fedak also have wisely included a scene in the premiere where Yvonne Strahovski stands in her underwear. Clearly, these are very shrewd and clever men.
