NBC's new "Chuck" is fun. The first episode was dynamite, at one point literally. It's like "Alias" meets "The Office," and the actor who plays Chuck looks a lot like John Krasinski. There are elements of "The O.C." in it, including a random moody soundtrack and a visit from some obscure indie band. This is all natural because it's by Josh Schwartz, the guy behind "The O.C." In any case, it's pure, giddy fun. The nerdy pal is a little too much like Seth Green for my taste, but what can you do. The rest of it is great.
