Fall season this year in the US had given us quite a number of interesting shows- Reaper, a re-imagining of The Bionic Woman and Flash Gordon, Private Practice (that Grey’s Anatomy spin-off), The Sarah Connor Chronicles- right on top of all your other favorite returning TV series.
I best describe it as Alias-meets-The OC-meets-40-Year-Old Virgin. Straight out of their success with The OC, Josh Schwartz and McG team up once again, but instead of another young adult drama, they came up with a nice little comedy- and it frackin’ works!
End result: you have a TV show that’s fun and entertaining. Lots of eye candy for both chicks and dudes (man, I’ve been a fan of Yvonne Strahovski since episode 1- woohoo!), lots of funny geek references (even funnier if you’re a geek yourself), lots of witty exchanges and a killer soundtrack.
Remind me to get you guys a soundtrack listing in the not-so-distant future.
The show has been running for a little over 5 episodes now, and so far, it never fails to entertain. Too bad NBC has taken down all its clips from YouTube. But, hey, all is not lost- you can have a taste of Chuck on the main NBC website right here!
Check it out now, funk soul brutha!
