CHUCK – TV Series

Chuck - TV Series

My rating : 8.0/10
Genre : Action – Comedy – Romance – Drama
Plot:
When a twenty-something computer geek inadvertently downloads critical government secrets into his brain, his former college friend turned CIA recruits him as a secret agent, all while keeping him out of evil hands.
(Computer geek by day, Government operative by night)

More Info: here….


Really it is a classic story about man who is being forced to be the man he is meant to be. Chuck has the potential to be someone that can own Software Company but years as a lowly computer store clerk have obliterated his self confidence. On the flip side, it is the story of a girl who has been running around saving the world and just wants a normal life.

I guess if you don’t have sympathy for the character you will never understand what is great about this show. It is FAR more than a bunch of spy clichés.

Very Enjoyable (if you take it for what it is)

The main character, Chuck, is a geeky, modest, conscientious and somewhat shy person who is suddenly faced with many challenges in his daily life, trying to keep together the different parts of his life at the same time. His field of expertise is fixing computers. We watch as Chuck Bartowski become an unwilling CIA agent but is completely clueless on how to behave like one.

I agree the show isn’t laugh-a-minute. However I think it far more than that. I once heard this show described as “joyous” and I think that is a perfect description. This is a show that should produce joy rather than laughter. Laughter is reflexive and ephemeral while joy is more lasting and requires sympathy for the characters.

I think, Viewers who are passionate about technology, I mean computer & stuff, will probably be especially likely to “get” the humor of this show. Yeah, sometimes, the fact that he doesn’t mean to be funny makes it even funnier (if that makes any sense). 🙂

The Chemistry Between Chuck & Sarah

Another thing I love is the chemistry between Chuck and Sarah. It is more than just tension to characters are actually in love, different to the usual theme where the boy is trying to get the girl to like him. We know they like each other from the start. It is merely the circumstance that keeps them apart.

The relationship between Chuck and Sarah: Last but definitely not least the element that most makes the show worth watching. They play off of each other so well that it makes me really believe that Yvonne Strahovski really is a super sexy C.I.A agent and Zachary Levi is just some “nerd” that happened to land the hottest women on the face of the planet in the most bizarre sort of way. I love Chuck and Sarah.

My conclusions

If you have an open-mind and have even a hint of empathy then this is the TV Series that I’m really recommended for YOU..!!!

    I think the key phrase in your review is ‘Very Enjoyable (if you take it for what it is)’. There aren’t many pure entertainment shows, like Chuck, on TV and so it can sometimes be a challenge to suspend your disbelief.

    The season 2 finale aired in the UK this week and it was excellent. A few of my thoughts on it are here:

    Chuck himself is such a strong character then he is able to carry the show through any of the stickier moments.
