It’s the season where everything changes. Chuck‘s third season might not be the series’ strongest but it has more than its share of memorable moments, betrayal and love conquering all, along with some notable recurring guest-stars and few surprises along the way.
With the new and improved Intersect 2.0 our hero Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi) will finally fulfill his dream of becoming a real spy and get a chance at a real relationship with Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). We’re also given the introduction of new team leader Daniel Shaw (Brandon Routh), the lovely Hannah (Kristin Kreuk – that’s right this season has Clark Kent and Lana Lang), Casey (Adam Baldwin) tries his hand at civilian life and discovers he has a daughter (Mekenna Melvin), and Morgan Grimes (Joshua Gomez) becomes a spy (no, really!).
The extras this time around include a Jeffster mockumentary, a gag reel, and a featurette on the show’s biggest edition this year – “Chuck-Fu.” Sadly, there are commentaries or real in-depth look at the characters or the season. It’s a good thing the show is strong enough to stand on its own because you certainly aren’t going to pick up this set for the extras.
There’s plenty of changes, character development, and an evolution of many of the series relationships (which rubbed some fans the wrong way) over the course of Season Three, but at the end of the day, as Sarah says, Chuck is still Chuck. That’s more than enough for me.
