“Chuck”: Bon voyage

ChuckzachyvonneGood luck, “Chuck.” Having seen the second seg of the NBC skein that bows tonight at 8 p.m., I can report that it’s growing on me.

Show’s been tagged an action-comedy by NBC, but it seems to lean more toward the comedy than the action, at least in the early going. Not gonna blow any of it for anyone who’s yet to see the pilot, but the second episode is more fun if only because there’s not as much set up needed and there’s more time for the interplay between its sheepishly charming star Zachary Levi, aka Chuck, and secret agent Sarah Walker, played with style by Yvonne Strahovski.

NBC’s assured of doing well tonight with the second season preem at 9 p.m. of “Heroes.” (The prospects for the debut of “Life” at 10 p.m. is a whole ‘nother story.) So here’s hoping the “Heroes” tune-in halo extends far out enough to give a boost to a worthy newcomer.
