Ever have those shows that you mean to watch when they’re on the air, but never get around to them? Chuck was one of those shows for me. I mean, the premise alone is pretty awesome: bumbling, under-achieving genius computer geek accidentally becomes a spy. Add in comedy and a few strong female characters, and I’m sold.
The thing that happens with these promising shows is that they either come on at a time when you have two other shows on that you like (so you watch one and record the other, but don’t know what to do about a third), or they just slip your mind entirely whenever they come on. I think the former is what happened with this show, since I think it broadcast on Monday nights, and that’s when I used to watch House and How I Met Your Mother.
Chuck is over now, but – lucky for me and my husband – still lives on through Netflix. You can find the whole series on there, and we just got through the first two seasons. And we love it! We’ve watched at least an episode (but usually 3 or 4) every night since we started the series. So I thought I’d talk about it a bit. Even though it’s an old show, it may be new to you too, so if you haven’t watched the first two seasons yet – watch out for possible spoilers ahead!
