McG comes to TV with surprising results in "Chuck" which debuts tomorrow night as a lead-in to the much-anticipated second season of "Heroes." Definitely tune in early to check out "Chuck" because the way NBC is advertising it (or not advertising it), it'll be gone shortly. And that's a shame.

The series rests on an annoying and unbelievable premise that should best be accepted - that lead character Chuck has all the secret intel from two government organizations in his head. Just accept it and move on, then you can enjoy the show.

Other than that this is a great little show that reminded me quaintly of both "Spaced" and Free Enterprise. It's geek chic, and it rocks. The segment of the population that will get all the jokes in this one will love it. Those that scratch their head and go "Wha?" - - well, who needs 'em? Those latter folks however might be what dooms this show before it gets a fair chance, so see it while you can!

Chuck, you had me at "Vicki Vale." ;-)
