Product Description

Chuck is the new hit TV show from executive producer, Josh Schwartz (The O.C.) and executive producer-director McG (Charlie's Angels). This is a one-hour, action-comedy series about Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi, Less Than Perfect), a computer geek who is catapulted into a new career as the government's most vital secret agent. When Chuck opens an e-mail subliminally encoded with government secrets, he unwittingly downloads an entire server of sensitive data into his brain. Now, the fate of the world lies in the unlikely hands of a guy who works at an electronics store. Instead of fighting computer viruses, he must now confront assassins and international terrorists.

From Amazon.co.uk

Zachary Levi was born to play Chuck. A computer nerd who finds himself thrust into the role of a Government secret agent, it’s a career-making role in a television show that’s got plenty to offer, whether you’re along for the action or the comedy.

Every episode from Chuck’s first season is gathered together in this set, and thus we get to see how a geek effectively became a wannabe-Jack Bauer. It goes without saying that Chuck has a lot of fun with its premise, and it happily asks you to suspend your disbelief as plausibility quickly goes out of the window. But so what? For when the action and comedy are as strong as they are with Chuck, that proves to be no price to pay whatsoever. Mix in the surprisingly high production values and the very witty scripts, and you have a surprise hit of a show that’s hard not to warm to.

One of the chief reasons for this is Levi in the title role, but Chuck also boasts good supporting turns from the likes of Adam Baldwin and Yvonne Strahovski. It also packs a surprising amount into its 13 episodes, and displays an ambition and verve that serves the show exceedingly well. What’s more, it also leaves you positively thirsting for more. Highly recommended. --Jon Foster

First of all here's what you want to know. This is a three disc set that's region free! Yes, it will play on your UK PS3 or Blu-ray player. This set has subtitles and a few extras. They include some small features, a gag reel and deleted scenes. There's thirteen episodes which are spread across three discs. Seven episodes on disc one and three episodes on disc two and three. Why didn't they just put four episodes on each disc? The sound is perfectly fine and is upgraded from the standard 2.0 Dolby on televison to 5.1 However the picture isn't great. It's a three star transfer that's hampered with grain throughout. It looks better then the television broadcasts but not as good as other warner releases like Smallville. Some of the scenes stand out and occasionally it felt like I was watching a decent HD picture. But most of the time it's not that much sharper then standard DVD. It's a shame that this transfer isn't in the same league as demo discs like Enchanted and I Robot. But it's worth buying if you're a fan and is the best picture available of the NBC series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season One 15 Jan 2010
By underthethumb VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I suspect that Chuck is a little like Marmite - you'll either love it or hate it. I sat watching the pilot episode entralled, laughing out loud and thoroughly enjoying it whereas my wife just sat there, walking out half way through muttering about "absolute rubbish". It definitely helps if you have an inner geek to set free while you watch, otherwise you're not likely to find a lot of the humour of behaviour of the characters funny.

Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski are perfectly cast and the on screen chemistry between the two really adds to the series. Sarah Lancaster and Joshua Gomez are also very good in their supporting roles; only Adam Baldwin fails for me as he doesn't convince as an NSA agent.

The series has something for everyone given a chance - action, humour, slow burning romance.

This box set contains all thirteen of episodes of the first season along with plenty of extras including additional scenes, a gag reel, casting sessions and a making of.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure escapist joy! 8 July 2009
By M. Gardner VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Taking the secret world of the spy and turning it on its head, Chuck (Zachary Levi in a career-making turn) is all about a nerdy sales assistant who one day unwittingly has all of the CIA and NSA's secret files downloaded into his brain. Now a walking database of informative espionage, he must be protected at all costs as he slowly finds himself being dragged further and further into his handlers' (the ever excellent Adam Baldwin and the extremely capable Yvonne Strahovski) world of danger, double crossing and occasional death.

Well there's the blurb out of the way.

This show has everything: humour, action, romance, twists, lies, excitement and things that go boom! Levi is frankly excellent, and in this casting Schwartz has managed not only to nail his demographic, but also make the character of Chuck almost universally likeable. Levi is so endearing that you are constantly rooting for him in life, love and laughs. He is matched by an excellent supporting cast. Adam Baldwin is cranky as ever and Yvonne Strahovski impresses not only on the eyes but also in terms of her character. Sarah, and particularly her relationship with Chuck, proves to be nearly central to everything. Although seen through Chuck's eyes, she is bound up in everything as the agency member increasingly torn between duty and desire. Sarah Lancaster is brilliant as Chuck's concerned sister, and Ryan McPartlin provides ample comic relief as her fiancee. The staff of Chuck's workplace - the Buy More - are all superbly cast, with Joshua Gomez's Morgan working the geek bromance comedy with effortless ease.

The concept is ridiculous, the situations often laughable; but this is the finest piece of escapist television I've seen in a while. The action is good enough to appease set-piece junkies.

By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Chuck Bartowski's (Zachary Levi) life was going no where fast. True, he is head of the Nerd Herd at his local Buy More. But he lives with his sister Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) and her boyfriend Devon (aka Captain Awesome, played by Ryan McPartlin). His best friend is Morgan (Joshua Gomez), a fellow nerd who also works at Buy More.

But things change drastically when Chuck gets an e-mail from former friend Bryce Larkin. The e-mail contains all the files of the intersect, the complete intelligence files of both the CIA and the NSA. And, to make things more exciting, Bryce has destroyed the original files.

All the information gets downloaded into Chuck's brain, making him a highly valuable government secret. So valuable that he has two bodyguards, Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski), a CIA agent who pretends to be Chuck's girlfriend, and John Casey (Adam Baldwin), a NSA who moves in next door to Chuck and takes a job at Buy More.

Whenever Chuck sees something from the intersect, he flashes on more information. Unfortunately, these flashes are at random and uncontrollable. And Los Angeles seems to be a hot bed of activity. Even with two agents guarding him, Chuck finds himself in over his head with his new life as a spy. Can he survive and keep his secret?

Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinking. The premise sounds unbelievable. And if you stop and think about it, it is. Fortunately, the show never gives you time to think. They cram everything into these episodes. There's action and intrigue, developing storylines involving the intersect and Chuck's past, romance with Sarah that she is not willing to admit is there, and plenty of laughs. Many of the laughs come from the sub-plots focused on the Buy More.
