Chuck

My new guilty pleasure. Yeah, sure, Chuck is contrived and clich├ęd, and yeah, it's got plot holes so big you could drive a Nerd Herder through it; but on the other hand:
  • It's what 40-Year Old Virgin might be like as a TV series.
  • For the Firefly fans, Jayne Cobb lives!
  • Lots of geek references
  • Great soundtrack.
  • Yvonne Strahovski (though Sarah Lancaster, Julia Ling, and other guest stars aren't bad, either)
But what I like best about Chuck is its earnestness and light-hearted mood. Great escapist fare!

The name's Carmichael. Charles Carmichael.

  1. Hey Dom,

    Didn't like Chuck much when it premiered in the US. But I started watching the DVDs and I now love it.

    My favorite episode so far is Chuck Vs. The Alma Mater.
