  • The second season of Chuck is set to be released onto DVD. In the first season, a rogue CIA agent, just before being killed, downloads a wealth of top secret government files into the brain of his old college roommate Chuck Bartowski, a seemingly disastrous choice. Chuck is a social misfit, a computer geek who toils at the Nerd Herd electronics department of the Buy More supermarket. In the second season, Chuck is in luck. Intersect II is ready for espionage service and that means the old Intersect can go back to his old life. But if Chuck goes, he’s gone: Casey has orders to off him. To celebrate the release of this second season onto DVD, we are giving away one Chuck Prize Pack (with a copy of the Chuck Season 1 DVD and a copy of the Chuck Season 2 DVD; retail value $100) each to three lucky winners. To enter, completely fill in the form at between January 1, 2010 and February 28, 2010. You must be at least 18 years old to enter and a resident of the United States. No group entries.
