  • Chuck mixes a spoonful of Alias, with a dash of Friends, and a hint of The OC to serve up a satisfying dish of a show!

    I now have a favorite show to watch in between episodes of The Office and Heroes. That show is Chuck. The clever mix of action, humor and drama, make this a very promising series. Chuck Bartowski is the stereotypical uber-nerd working for the "Buy More", a hilarious parody for Best Buy. He has an otherwise 'boring' life; a best friend, Morgan; a super-hot sister, Ellie (and her Herculean boyfriend, the aptly named "Captain Awesome"). Chuck's life is suddenly turned upside down when super-spy in disguise, and ex-roommate/rival, Bryce Larkin sends him an encrypted e-mail containing the "Intersect"(a super computer that contains all of the nation's secrets which are encoded into images). The CIA and the NSA send out two of their field agents, the super hot Sarah Walker and the hilarious assassin John Casey, to intercept Chuck and see what has become of the Intersect. Chuck gets his first real challenge and disarms a bomb with a virus that lurks around in an adult website. Classic witty writing, in a fresh, original package.
