Anyone else watching Chuck?: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0934814/
[Seasons 1 and 2 are out on DVD, Season 2 is currently showing at some godawful graveyard slot on FOX8 right now, or you can get fully up to date on Season 3 via *ahem* other means... ]
Here's the pitch:
Computer tech guy (Chuck Bartowski) working for a Harvey Norman-style brown box store (the BuyMore) accidentally gets a secret government supercomupter downloaded into his brain. This enables him to selectively see various classified info, but there's no way to get it out of his head- so he continues working at Buy More as cover whilst assitsing the CIA (Agent Sarah Walker) and NSA (Col. John Casey). Shennannigans ensue. Meanwhile, back at the Buy More, everyone's got their own problems- not least Morgan (Chuck's bromance life partner) and Jeff and Lester (stalkers, slackers and rock-gods extrodinaire)
Stars Zach Levi, Yvonne Strahovski (Aussie chick, represent!), and Adam Baldwin (even more awesome in this than Firefly. Oh yeah, I went there; come at me haters )
For those of you not watching it yet, you really should try it! It's a bit James Bond, a bit Clerks. But most of all, it's pretty much as nerdy as its main characters. Besides the fact that the show's premise is solid-gold nerd wish fulfillment, each ep is a game of 'spot the comic/movie/game quote/reference', not to mention the awesome genre guest stars (Chevy Chase, Kristin Kreuk, Scott Bakula, Mark Sheppard, Arnold Vosloo, Brandon Routh- more on him later...). It's like they custom built a show solely to please everyone in this community lol
Soo yeah...Chuck is pretty much at the top of my must-watch TV right now. Anyone else with me? :]
FYI- there's likely going to be spoilers in this thread. JSYK.
