I like Chuck
Recently I’ve started watching the show Chuck and right now I’m five episodes in. I really like it and I can see how there’s potential for some good character development, which is usually what gets me hooked on shows. Here are some early reasons why I really like the show.
Yvonne Strahovski is goddamn smoking. Could be the most stunning woman in the world right now. Yeah, let’s lay it on thick. But really, she is gorgeous and has such a presence on the screen. How she isn’t a big name in movies yet is so beyond me that it’s not even funny. She also pulls off being vulnerable when she needs to.
Zachary Levi. Wow, his deadpan acting is just perfect and I also discovered that he can sing (look for an upcoming song of the day).
The banter and comedic timing is the best part of the show. All the actors work so well together, even the guest stars. Must be a really fun set. Just check out this video.
I’ve had a mancrush on Adam Baldwin ever since Serenity. I have to say, though, that I like him more when he’s not too smart. But his surly attitude in Chuck also works.
The supporting cast is also spot on and even though Chuck’s best friend Morgan is a bit too much sometimes, he’s growing on me. The sister and Captain Awesome are good together.
Also, the music is pretty good too. I’ve already discovered two great songs that are new to me. That happened all the time with Numb3rs.
