Chuck


I have recently discovered an under-appreciated gem that I have fallen in love with quicker than well... anything (even that super-hot Asian chick at the club). That my friends, is Chuck. If you have not seen this show, seriously go watch it. When I say go watch it, I mean like... go actually watch the first couple episodes- in order. This is important, as this is one of the rare shows out there that actually follows a story. It may sound like a lame concept at first, and you might think "wow this show tries too hard" - at first... but if you actually take the time to watch this show and learn to appreciate the humor, writing, and acting... well you'll fall in love.

This has become my new favorite TV show. Ever. To give you a reference point, I also love Dexter, BattleStar Galactica, Sopranos, South Park, Spartacus, Entourage, Arrested Development... just to name a few. Yes, individually those shows are awesome and it's hard to compare many of those high-budget shows with a show like Chuck- or so you may think. That being said, a perfect blend of high quality writing, directing and acting make this show one that you literally want to keep watching again and again. (I've found myself watching like a third of a season in one go... and they're roughly 20 episodes long).

The story is arching and has plenty of plot elements, rises and falls to keep you on the edge of your seat. However, this is not Everybody Loves Raymond, you need to actually watch all the episodes consecutively so you don't miss anything.

Now I know you're going to ask me 'tell us about it' and I would love to, but I can't. Lets just say it's an awesome action/comedy with deep story and character development. The rest you just have to find out for yourself. Go buy season 1, you won't regret it. I just finished season 2, and I'll be starting on season 3 soon. Season 4 is currently airing on NBC on Monday at 8/7 Central. But as I said, go and watch the first few episodes before you watch any newer ones, or you will be totally lost.

TLDR: Go watch this show, it has a sexy Australian spy and Adam Baldwin (Firefly). Watch it!

Sounds like it's worth a try. Thanks for the heads-up. TV's so fragmented now it's easy to miss the few good shows in all the copypasta.

Display Safe said...

I love Chuck I have been watching it from the start, I have been telling every one I know to watch it. But it seems to me every one likes to watch stupid crap like dancing with the stars more interesting then a show with great story and good acting.
