Chuck Season 4
Chuck Season 4 obviously kicks off where season 3 ended, and keeps the mad momentum up, with Chuck searching for his mother whilst battling the evil Alexei Volkoff (played surprisingly well by Timothy Dalton) and trying to keep his day job a secret from his pregnant and prone to worrying sister, whilst keeping the Buy More store looking like a store and not a secret spy base.
If you’ve never seen Chuck before, he’s just an ordinary guy who opened the wrong email and now his brain holds all of the American government’s secrets, and as a by-product has turned this Mr Ordinary into a super spy who has the ability to call upon everything stored in his brian at a moments notice, including Kung-Fu skills.
With the love interest – and handler – Sarah Walker continuing down the serious road towards marriage, life for Chuck and the team is as interesting, action packed and varied as ever, with plenty of twists and surprises.
But the main thing with Chuck, is it has heart. It’s lovable characters and slapstick humour make it one of the best non-serious TV shows around.
