Chuck is the spy comedy that will not die. Cancelled after two seasons, fans campaigned and NBC renewed the show for thirteen and then nineteen episodes. Chuck is now going to return for a fourth season fall 2010. Only James Bond has had as many lives. Chuck Season 3 Blu-ray has the nineteen episodes on 4 discs. DVD set at Amazon
Chuck is a nerd who accidentally downloaded every bit of national security information into his brain. Seasons 1 and 2 feature Chuck going on spy missions he is ill-equipped for, hence the comedy, assisted by his two handlers Sarah and Casey.
Season 3 opens with Chuck embedded with an even better program and wanting to be a real spy. The first episode is too busy setting things up to be interesting. The show picks up immediately after that. With the new program, Chuck may be able to be a full-fledged spy.
Chuck has a few personal crises this season and perhaps being a spy means sacrificing too many other things. The whole Chuck and Sarah thing does get a bit much. Things get a bit too serious midway through but fortunately not for long. Chuck and the Honeymooners on disc 3 is proof of that: it seems Chuck and Sarah really enjoy being handcuffed to each other.
Christopher Lloyd shows up in episode 16. Chuck goes on a solo mission and the computer store nerds revolt in episode 5 (Blu-ray 1). Disc 2 has the Buy More staff fighting a takeover without realizing they are fighting the Ring.
The season s best episode is Chuck and the Honeymooners on disc 3. The season ending is really really complicated for no reason.
Chuck The Complete Third Season DVD and Blu-ray Special Features are Chuck-Fu...and Dim Sum: Becoming a Spy Guy; The Jeffster Revolution: The Definitive Mockumentary; Declassified Scenes; and a Gag Reel
