Saving Chuck

Chuck.

Heard of it?

It's the best. The. Absolute. BEST!

It's an action-comedy (and let's be honest...ROMANCE (kind of)) about a computer whiz who, as Wikipedia so eloquently puts it, "receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working in the CIA; the message embeds the only remaining copy of the world's greatest spy secrets into Chuck's brain". Therefore, he's a SECRET ASSET to the CIA and is basically "saving the world at 11 dollars an hour".

It's filled with pretty girls, action, romance, and HUMOUR. SO much humour. What combination could possibly beat that?

Pretty girl alert! Pretty girl alert!

Lowell and I recently discovered that Chuck's third season was NEARLY canceled due to lack of ratings. Well it's time for us to provide a little public service here to help save Chuck because we don't want another Veronica Mars* situation on our hands.

So here goes...WATCH CHUCK. Trust me- it's great. Zachary Levi (Chuck) and Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah) are now two of my all time favourite actors. I secretly dream of being Sarah's right hand woman. Helping kick some serious butt for the CIA.

Sarah: Awesome CIA Agent #1...

Julie: Awesome CIA Agent #1's Super Secret Super Special Sidekick...

If I can be this fierce in my own backyard, IMAGINE how much damage I can do to bad guys... while armed.


*By the time Lowell and I even discovered Veronica Mars, it was already canceled. FOR SHAME. Had we heard about it earlier, we definitely would've supported the crap out of it and surely saved it from it's undeserved demise.

Hey your hair looks good. I am surprised you haven't done a post about your nose ring yet. Or your apple thief...

My husband and I love Chuck! You are right, it has all the perfect elements of a perfect show!
We too also started watching VMars after it was canceled and I am left forever wondering what might have happened in Season 3 had they had the opportunity to finish it. Quality television is a commodity these days. You can bet your boots that Kevin and I will be watching Chuck!
Evie (Taekema) Nikkel...and Kevin :)

Jill & Evie- it excites me that you & your hubbies love Chuck as much as we do!!

Liz- You should get/rent the seasons on DVD and go through them while your up in the night feeding your almost-here babe!

Clyn- jumping the gun a little bit dear sister. The nose story is still playing itself out so I can't blog about it yet! :)

I have heard that Rob Thomas (the creator of VMars) wants to do a movie to finish things off. So here's hoping!
