Chuck starts the second season a little more confident, a little funnier. That's the right direction to be moving in.

What's the opposite of the sophomore slump? The sophmore surge? Sophomore surprise? Whatever you want to call it, "Chuck" is experiencing it -- big-time.

You know you're on solid ground with season two from the opening episode, where Chuck eventually uses Morgan's Call Of Duty tactics to outwit the bad guys.

They've carved out a small but perfectly formed tableau in the tapestry of TV history, and whatever the ultimate destiny of the show, they can't take that sort of magic away.

Chuck easily dances between the reference-y and the fantastical, maintaining a nice balance.

It all led to a truly game-changing two-part finale, that left things in a very different place for several characters, and raised plenty of questions about where the show will go now, having upended some of the core situations.

Chuck returns like an old friend back from a year abroad: still likable, still funny, but with an added note of intrigue.

Audience Reviews for Chuck: Season 2

  • May 12, 2019
    One of the most fun and exciting seasons to a show I have ever seen. That's all that needs to be said.
  • Aug 23, 2017
    La mejor serie de la década del 2000. 5 grandes temporadas.
  • Nov 01, 2014
    Better because Chuck is better.

    With great performance s, sharp writing, and an impressive blend of genres that really work. Chuck shines at it's very best, building on top of the first season, like every season in a series should.
  • Jun 28, 2014
    Second season is obviously the best season. After the third season the show starts to go a little down hill, focusing to much on the plot and having lots of action scenes rather than humor. Still a very entertaining show.

    Season two of Chuck follows a more specific overarching narrative in which Chuck pursues Sarah after he mistakes there cover relationship for the real thing. It also deals with Chuck completing his mission for the CIA and facing what comes next for him as well as his relationship with his newly discovered father. While this season doesn't have the initial zing of the first, it manages to keep the show fresh and not repetitive, which can be difficult with a show like this. Bottom line, definitely a good season... Probably better than the first, but they all blend together once you've seen the entire series.

    The Characters become more interesting while the show still remains funny. Season two might just be a bit better than the first season.
