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)

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.

Leverage might after a first show look like a series replica of “Oceans Eleven” movie with even the same generic music attached to some scenes,

Timothy Hutton plays former insurance investigator Nate Ford,
a once-loyal employee who had recovered millions of dollars in stolen goods for his employer. But after Ford’s son dies because his employer denied insurance claims, he decides to lead a team of thieves who act as modern-day Robin Hoods, providing leverage to those who need it..
