My new guilty pleasure. Yeah, sure, Chuck is contrived and clichéd, 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.
