Chuck Bartowsky was kicked out of Stanford 4 years ago by his best friend - turned arch enemy Bryce Larkin. Fast forward 4 years and Bryce is a rogue CIA agent who has stolen the combined files from the CIA and NSA, termed the Intersect. He was shot and killed while destroying the Intersect, but not before he sent all of the Intersect's data, encoded in pictures, to Chuck Bartowsky, the one person who can retain the subliminal information.
Chuck, now a supervisor for the Nerd Herd at the Buy More (Think FutureShop or Best Buy), has all the secrets of two governement agencies locked in his brain. The busty blonde agent Sarah from the CIA goes undercover as Chuck's girlfriend while the disciplined agent Casey of the NSA becomes a salesman at the Buy More in order to work together and protect the Intersect. Trouble doesn't seem to find Chuck however, Chuck seems to find trouble.
All in all, a very enjoyable first season that just gets better and better as things progress. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a witty, light-hearted comedy.
I recently bought season 1 & 2 on blu ray (on sale for about $30 each). Now when i got them and watched it for the first time i noticed some grain-e-ness - most visible on white parts.
I worried maybe i had made a mistake and that the blu rays were no better then the original dvds. I read thru all the reviews and everyone had a different opinion.
So i sat down and watched one episode from the original dvd set and the same episode on the blu ray version.
I watched the season 1 episode titled chuck vs. the spicy shrimp....
First of all, there was grain on both editions. I do not know if there was any on the original tv edition ( i am not here to argue about that fact). The simple fact is, both DVD and blu-ray have grain and I believe it is just the way the show was shot. That said i found the blu ray better colour and visual quality and the grain less visible (not by a whole lot, but some difference).
I personally think the blu-ray version is better, but you should expect to see grain no matter which version you buy.
I viewed the episodes on an LG LCD TV and with a PS3 updated to current firmware as of (April 2012).
Monday nights is now exclusive to Chuck for me and my family. This show is family-friendly entertainment, and it is smart, witty and hilarious. Just those items would make Chuck a great show, but add to that a great story with powerful dramatic scenes that make us attached to the characters and wow, you've got the best show on TV.
The people that bring these characters to life are not to be forgotten. The ensemble of Zach Levi, Yvonne Strahovski and Adam Baldwin is full of chemistry and transition flawlessly between scenes of humor, action and drama. The supporting cast also provides great bang for your buck and the endless stream of great guest stars are just icing on this delicious cake of a show.
5/5 stars for the show.
Now about the versions, I own the first season on both Blu-ray and DVD and I have to say that although this is my favorite show on TV, the Blu-ray version has very little to offer over the regular DVD version if you own a good upconverting DVD player. The Blu-ray version offers clearer images than the DVD, obviously, but the difference in image quality is minimal unless you sit 1-foot away from your HDTV. Unlike some other Blu-ray movies such as Transformers, Wall-E, etc, the HD transfer of Chuck is just so-so.
Another minor disappointment in the Blu-ray is the lack of Tru-HD audio and only 5.1 Dolby Digital just like the DVD, but it does however have an episodic menu which is a Pop-up similar to a lot of Blu-ray movies (on my PS3 remote I press Pop-up menu)unlike what reviewer 'Trayton Turner "Turner"' mentioned.Read more ›

Would recommend this DVD set to anyone who enjoys action, comedy, and a bit of cheesy acting :-)
CHUCK is probably one of the most amazing shows I have ever watched. You will fall in love with all the characters of this show once you start watching. Even Jeff & Lester. Maybe.Published on March 9 2014 by C. Akin

Chuck is arguably one of the best TV shows ever created. It plays on all emotions: laughter, sadness, joy, and love. This show will change your life. I highly recommend it.Published on March 10 2013 by Valorem
