My TV Fix: Chuck

Chuck is a show I never would’ve watched if it wasn’t for peer pressure. I’d held out for a while but recently I decided to take the plunge and watch.

For those of you who don’t know, this is a story about a guy, Chuck Bartowski who works as a Nerd Herder at the Buy More (think Geek Squad at Best Buy). One day, Chuck is unwillingly given a whole bunch of government secrets, as data from this super computer, The Intersect, is downloaded into his brain. The FBI and CIA send two agents, Sarah Walker and John Casey to protect this important “asset”. Chuck also has visions, or “flashes” of people, places or things that are generally bad, when he sees them. Since he’s a valuable resource, his flashes lead to this trio of crime fighters taking down baddies week after week.

The show isn’t perfect, but it has pretty much all the dynamics you could ask for. It’s funny, action packed, has love interests, bromances, geek references and sex appeal. Chuck is also the “every man” you want to succeed. The creators know what works and generally stick to the same premise for each show, which at times can get a little repetitive; however, that may be a side effect to watching episodes back-to-back. That being said, Chuck is still my latest TV addiction and I can’t wait to continue watching.

Are you a fan of Chuck? What do you like most about it?
