  • On the verge of losing both his status as an agent and the affection of Sarah Walker, Chuck embarks on a little mission of his own to prove his worth as Agent Charles Carmichael...

    An excellent opening to the new season, 'Chuck' returns with all the humor and action a nerd could ever dream of -- and then some. 'Chuck versus the Pink Slip' offers a wonderful explanation for the events of the past six months and the following consequences without turning Chuck into a 21st century Superman. His flaws are still incredibly realistic and his aversion to guns (and killing people in general) is absolutely wonderful. His kindness, intelligence, and average Joe weaknesses make him all the more appealing to watch, a hero that the audience can truly sympathize with as he's thrust head first into the world of espionage. Will Chuck become the perfect spy? More importantly, can he keep hold of his humane ideals in the process?

    We'll just have to wait to find out. ;)
