  • Doug Elfman

    Cute, creative and slick, this is one of the best new shows of the fall season.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    In a sense, Monday's promising premiere is the first in a three-part introduction, with each episode building on and improving upon the one before.

    USA Today Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Chuck sounds like a regrettably derivative idea - a remake of "Jake 2.0." But it's not. Chuck is a blast.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Gillian Flynn

    While there are a a few too many "awkward-guy moments," there are enough genuinely sweet ones to balance them out. [28 Sep 2007, p.93]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    It's actually a kick to watch. Its joys are broader and self-consciously zanier than the CW series.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Chuck possesses modest charm, impressive stunt work and another mildly appealing reluctant hero.

    Variety Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    The real-world intrigue is matched in dramatic flair by Chuck-world jeopardy. His store's fierce assistant-manager competition resounds as fatefully as saving the universe from evil. Which makes the dark light enough and the light dark enough to meld into a tasty escapist treat.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    The pilot is an especially persuasive hour of action-adventure, but subsequent lower-budget episodes preserve the esprit and suspense.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Aaron Barnhart

    The results aren't much different from a video game, for the violence on Chuck is pretty cartoony, but after watching two episodes I’m hooked. This is a fun escapist show.

    Kansas City Star Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    Chases, stunts and explosions fill the funny, flashy adventure.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    The series is part spy spoof, part workplace comedy, and it is a genuinely engaging homage to the nerd hero.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Tom Shales

    The show has a happily palpable likability going for it, a lot of that courtesy of Zachary Levi, who plays the unlikely and in fact unwilling hero.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Schwartz's good eye for characters and cutting sense of humor--makes Chuck a thoroughly enjoyable romp.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    Chuck starts a step slower, with more exposition in the first two episodes and no larger-than-life character like Satan to smooth over that, but by episode three, it's just as assured and entertaining in its own extremely similar way.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Troy Patterson

    Their new show has both the nerve to link up twentysomething malaise and 21st-century terror-angst and the good nature to make the proposition look endearing.

    Slate Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    It's headed in the right direction ... fast, loose and fun.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    The pilot is full of dark, dangerous and sexy moments.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    Chuck is one of two new fantastical shows premiering Monday on NBC, making a Heroes sandwich. That's fantastical, not fantastic.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    "The O.C." team of Josh Schwartz and McG keep this one fast and mostly funny, but it's no "Heroes."

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    It's good, not great, and tonight's strong pilot gives way next week to a noticeably less stellar hour.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    For reasons too obvious to bother with, NBC managed to take a really terrific and fun premiere and somehow let it morph over the following episodes into just another take-it-or-leave-it show.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    Still, despite Chuck’s zippy pace and fun dialogue, this nerd-friendly "spy-fi" show from "O.C." creator Josh Schwartz has plot holes you could drive a truck through.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    Chuck is, at its best, cute--and that's not enough to keep up with the big dogs.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Levi exudes an everyman appeal that may catch on with viewers, but the show's plots need to grow beyond the action-adventure tropes of 1970s TV if Chuck hopes to avoid being chucked off NBC's prime-time schedule.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Roger Holland

    A good-natured show with a convincing sense of fun and a likeable cast, Chuck also has the wit, confidence, and grasp of the cultural climate to turn a running joke about a celebrity porn site into a major plot device.

    PopMatters Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    A charming but underwhelming pilot.... The second episode is dismal, sucking all the air out of whatever hopes you might have had for that one.
