TV Tonight: "Chuck"

TV Tonight: "Chuck"

I loved the pilot for "Chuck," but I was a little let down by the second episode. But if you're considering giving up on "Chuck," don't do it yet — at least not until you see tonight's third episode.

Of the episodes NBC sent to critics, this one was definitely my favorite. It has the quick, fun jokes and breezier tone of the first episode, but it also has an actual case for Chuck to solve, making that computerized brain of his good for something. The spy parody elements seemed a lot sharper in this episode than they were in "Chuck Vs. the Helicopter," and the scene where Captain Awesome teaches Chuck to tango is priceless. There are also some great moments at the Buy More, which gives me hope for how the spy elements and the regular life bits can work together.

Yahoo! TV has a couple of fun clips from the episode. Or, to watch Zachary Levi going door-to-door to promote "Chuck," just
