A word: Awesome

That is all

Connor

Sorry, I know I’m not one for fanboy-ish glee or over the top sentimental feelings for TV shows, but I’ve been a fan of Chuck for a long time. I was on my seat when it was almost cancelled and I was more than relieved when it came back. I’m sure countless other Chuck viewers will echo my sentiments, because…well, because Chuck fans are like that. Loyal to a fault, almost.

Anyway, I would suggest for you to go watch it on HULU, but unless you’ve seen the other episodes…go out and buy the box sets and wait. Trust me, it’s worth it. To appreciate this episode, you need to start at the beginning.

I need some sunglasses, recommendations?

I’m looking at some Ray-Ban Wayfarers, but I think these might have to do on a small budget. Wayfarer

Chuck S.3 Ep. 6.
“Chuck Versus the Nacho Sampler”


I’ve been a fan of Chuck since it has been on the air. I was horrified when I heard that it might be cancelled after its second season. Thankfully, it’s back and it’s awesome.

If you don’t know what Chuck is about, I’ll give you a rundown before jumping into the review. Chuck is about a “Buy-More” employee (a parody of Best-Buy) and is in the Nerd Herd division (Geek squad?). He’s nerdy, shy, goofy and just about awesome. Well, at the start of the series he gets an email from his old college roommate, Bryce. Well, it’s an encrypted file of something called an, “intersect.” The intersect holds all of the information within the U.S. government and the original intersect is destroyed. So, Chuck now holds all the secrets in the military world.

He’s assigned “handlers” and is basically used as an asset for the government (CIA). Shenanigans ensue.

Cut to season three, episode six. Chuck’s intersect has been upgraded so he not only knows all the secrets but hes got all the training of a real spy as well. Well, in this episode several story lines came to a head. Chuck is still the same goofy guy, but he’s maturing. After 2 season of a nerdy, reclusive Chuck, we get to see a hardened Chuck. He’s confronted with a tough, moral decision and he does what a “spy” would do and not “Chuck.” He’s hardening, if you will.

At the same time, his friends and family members are starting to become suspicious of his actions…cue trouble on the homefront. The show is really starting to move up and get into a groove, it’s pretty awesome.

10/10 for the episode.
