Chuck, the TV Show
I picked up Chuck Season One on Blu-ray last week, and we’ve watched some of the episodes over the weekend. (When season two comes out on Blu-ray, I’ll be buying that too.) All in all, the disc set is a pretty good deal considering that it holds the whole season and I paid… um… I think about $40 Canadian for it. (I got it at Amazon.) The quality isn’t perfect – sometimes it looks a little grainy. But all in all I’m not too disappointed.
Of course, it’s hard to pay attention to the picture quality when you’re watching Chuck! I never watch reruns, but I’m watching season one of Chuck again just because it’s so much fun. In case you didn’t know, Chuck is the main character of the show, and has a bunch of CIA secrets stuffed in his brain. So he gets a beautiful CIA handler assigned to pretend to be his girlfriend, and a tough-as-nails yet very fun to watch NSA handler becomes his undercover co-worker. They are Sarah Walker, played by Yvonne Strahovski, and John Casey, played by Adam Baldwin. The cast also includes a bunch of other great characters, including his best friend Morgan (or “Organ”), his sister Ellie, and her fiance Mr. Awesome.
The show is great. It’s a real treat. I highly suggest you check it out. Tonight is the season two finale, so it’s your last chance this year to see what a fun show this is.
One of the great things about this show is that it appeals both to me, a software developer, and my wife, a stay at home mom. It’s got a lot of action, they’re not afraid to actually kill someone on the show, but it’s also very funny.
I wish I got paid to write this stuff, but I’m not. It’s just a great show. Check it out.
