The show remains lightweight and occasionally just silly, but it's also a comedy that's truly tense, a drama with a mythology that rarely gets bogged down.

Amid all the shattered and haunted leading men on TV today, Chuck is a refreshingly simple guy. He just wants to do his job well and get the girl. Which may, in fact, be enough.

Los Angeles Times

The whole Chuck-Sarah relationship has been played from so many angles as to have grown a bit tedious--how many longing looks can two characters exchange?--and the actual capers are generally pretty slim.

Chuck needs to watch reruns of "Ed," where the beauty-and-the-geek romance lasted several first-rate seasons because it always played its position.

Fingers crossed that "Chuck" emerges on the surviving side of that keep/cancel divide.

There's a sense of joy around "Chuck" that's infectious.

After a major change in the show's premise, the show successfully changes gears while keeping everything that's best about it.

Unashamedly goofy, there's no lack of blistering action and thinly veiled nerdy allusions to make this season enjoyable for its dedicated fan base.
