This show is fantastic. Definitely worth a look. It's a real hidden gem. I recommend it to all of my friends, and I recommend it to you as well. There are a lot of laughs and lots of emotion within this series (I've cried a few times while watching this show).
Chuck is the story of a nerdy guy that works in an electronics store and he opens a strange email that transmits all of the government secrets into his brain. He basically has a computer in his head (aka. the Intersect). Agent Sarah Walker of the CIA and Major John Casey of the NSA begin to act as Chuck's handlers. The first season generally follows a villain of the week formula, but the show keeps things fresh nonetheless.
Chuck is a character that most people can relate to. A lot of us have been at a point in life where you feel like you aren't going anywhere. You have a boring life, you can't get a date (let alone get the opposite sex to look at you), and you work a dead end job while your sibling and your friends from school are all being successful. The show presents something we all dream about, having something spectacular happen to us that will take us away from our boring lives.
The acting is excellent as is the comedic timing and the writing. One of my favourite aspects of the show as a whole has to be the Chuck and Sarah relationship and the dynamics of it. It's really well done and there will be times when you shout at your TV in frustration because they don't realize that they love each other.
This is a show for people who like TV. Period. You get your comedy, your action, your mystery and your romance in one hit. I can't recommend it enough. You will get hooked on this show. Why are you still reading this? Add it too your cart already!
