Critic Reviews for Chuck Season 3

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (8)

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.

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

Jan 10, 2010 | Full Review…

The show's walking a fine line, and here it takes a Han-Solo-at-the-end-of-A-New-Hope-style appearance from Casey to do the killing to keep it on it.

Rarely does a show get under my skin in a good way like Chuck does. It's smart, funny, got plenty of non-cheesy action and a whole lot of pop culture savvy.

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

Jan 10, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

I'd like to congratulate the Chuck team. This was the best season so far, and long may this show keep reinventing itself.

Oct 20, 2018 | Full Review…

"Chuck" continues to impress me, mostly because at the end of each episode, I'm left satisfied but with the feeling that it surely can't last much longer. And yet it does.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

It will be difficult for Chuck to ever reach the heights it did in the last stretch of episodes of episodes of season two, but the creative team assembled some darn good efforts this season.

Jan 5, 2018 | Full Review…

[Chuck] is the perfect example of a series that continuously grows and develops along with its characters.

Oct 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Luckily, the show has more than found a way to keep the feeling of previous seasons just with Chuck whooping a little butt.

Aug 22, 2017 | Full Review…

Zachary Levi has done a great job at playing Chuck the nerd so far, and that's certainly a core aspect of his character still. But Levi also proves that he can credibly turn on the action hero side of the character too.

Dec 13, 2016 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

In a very smart move, Chuck has undergone something of a reboot in an attempt to find a wider audience although it's by no means a sell-out of the original concept of the show.

Audience Reviews for Chuck: Season 3

  • Jun 01, 2020
    Just funny, dorky and sweet
  • May 12, 2019
    Probably the best series I have ever watched! Highly recommended.
  • Mar 23, 2019
    Very well might be my favorite season of a show that perfectly balances humor, action, romance and geek culture. It's absurd, but never at the expense of its characters, heart or charm. Highly recommend.
  • Feb 03, 2016
    Unfortunately most good things "should" come to an end. Chuck should have ended at season two.
  • Aug 04, 2014
    With a strong start and a much darker tone, Chuck aims high for it's fans and delivers everything that you love about the series, even if it falls short of it's predecessors (particularly the second half).
  • May 12, 2014
    After season two, the writers must have realized that they'd exhausted most of the possible content with how the cast was structured, so they decided to make a change by making Chuck the intersect 2.0. Basically, he's the same person, except with the ability to kick ass and take names. It's an interesting change that is entertaining and adds some fresh content to the show. Bottom line, it's a good season... Really different, but not any worse than the first.
