This review is from: Chuck - Season 5 [DVD]  (DVD)
Chuck, or as i like to call the show Mission Ridiculous, is a show that to be quite frank shouldn't have worked at all. Sounding on paper like a carbon copy of series Jake 2.0 the show about an ordinary guy who winds up with a computer in his head and becoming a spy was always on the verge of being cancelled but miraculously survived thanks to the show's dedicated fans and some of the best product placement advertising you will ever see thanks to a deal with fast food chain Subway and of course some superb writing and great cast and characters. The show also had as guest stars some of the biggest names in scifi including Bruce Boxleitner, Scott Bakula, Lou Ferringo, Brandon Routh, Linda Hamilton and a former James Bond, Timothy Dalton plus Chevy Chase and the fifth and final season includes Mark Hammill, Carrie Anne Moss and Ben Browder. Picking up where season 4 left off with no apologies if you are new to the show and aware that it's the last season therefore dedicated to wrapping things up for the fans, the show sees Chuck's best friend Morgan now as the Intersect with the computer in his head that lets him access all kinds of top secret information and turns him into a fearless spy leading up to a great heartwarming finale with terrific character moments. This show will be missed but a miracle it got this far.
