Season two picks up the plot a couple of months after the finale of season one. Very little has changed for Chuck (Zachary Levi), who still has all of the governments secrets locked away inside his head, putting him in a constant state of danger. As the series develops, Chuck is becoming more used to his role as 'the intersect', juggling his work at the buy more with missions for the CIA and a constant will they/won't they romance with Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski), the CIA agent assigned to protect him. Things become far more dangerous for Chuck, as the enemy organisation 'Fulcrum' starts to home in on him, putting his family and friends in danger. This, coupled with the feelings he has for Sarah, imbues him with the fierce desire to remove the intersect computer from his head once and for all, so he can return to a normal life.
A lovably bizarre comedy/espionage series. Each of the 22 episodes manages to be gripping, exciting and fun. A definite must see.

I can't think of enough superlatives for this series.
It just keeps getting better and better. It's own internal mythology is interesting enough to keep me watching; the relationships between the characters is believable; the action is great; the comedy is well integrated and it's also the only show I watch in which I have a big stupid grin on my face that lasts the whole episode.
The Buy More scenes which could get repetitive never outstay their welcome as they're a nice little aside from the sometimes heavy spy stuff, but still treated with the same level of respect as the main arc of the show. They're not just a lame B-side, to a great A-side single.
I love Zachary levi as Chuck, such a fun normal person, at least within the premise of the show. And a great actor, who can do the serious emotional aspects of the series as well as broad comedy.
It's fun, it's funny, it's sad, it's exciting, it's...Awesome.
Yes, with a capital A.

I often find that American comedy shows get a bit tedious after a while, but the Chuck series' are still very watchable. The action is amusing and exciting enough to keep you watching but escapist enough not to be scarey even for older children. The characters all have enough quirks and human aspects to make them sympathetic and watchable. Good, lightweight escapist show - I'm really looking forward to the third series (presuming they're making one (if they don't I'll be really disappointed)).

Chuck is great. It's perfect light relief telly when you don't want to have to think too hard about the plot and like a little humour. There's no spoilers here, I wouldn't want to ruin any storyline. Let it be said however that Chuck Season 2, in my opinion, is an improvement over an already excellent Season 1. Chuck really finds its feet this season and would be a welcome addition to any DVD collection.
