Those that know me, know how much I love the show Chuck. Sometimes, I admit that love borders on obsession but what can I say? I’m a sucker for a a goofy hero who can kick-buck (oh, and a well written story that doesn’t make you scratch your head and say, wtf? *cough* Lost *cough*) Chuck is fun, emotional and totally addictive.
Someone who loves Chuck as much as I is my fellow author, Selena Illyria. Selena has asked me more than once to blog about Chuck as a guest blogger on her site. I never did cause honestly, I couldn’t find the words. She finally gave up on me and blogged about Chuck herself. And did an awesome job.
Faithful readers, I give you Selena Illyria.
Why I Love Chuck
Don’t worry I’m not going to do massive spoilers. I can’t do that to my friends on the West Coast or in Australia who haven’t seen it yet. Normally I don’t really blog about TV shows. I just say this is what I’m watching and leave it at that. But this time I wanted to do something. I know people have been wondering why Chuck and not say Law and Order or Heroes? Honestly I don’t know. What I do know is that I’m grateful to NBC for keeping the show alive (Pleeeaaassse give us a whole 22 episodes season, pleeeeaaassseee). To be honest I didn’t watch in the beginning. Too many freakin shows on at the same for me to watch. But I became curious after reading my friend Chris/Crystal Green’s Chuck recaps (her show recaps rock!) on her blog. Then I saw one episode and was hooked. I had to see them all. Chuck isn’t a show that many will get. It’s not as complicated as Lost or as flashy as 24. It didn’t get lost in its mythos like Heroes did. At the core of the show, at it’s heart, the show is about Chuck and those that Chuck loves. His family. He may not be an uber spy like Bryce Larkin (Dear God, Matt Boomer is gorgeous) nor is he as suave as James Bond. He does bumble and fumble but he means well. In his heart of hearts he is a good guy, a sweet guy. He may not be your first choice but he is the guy who will go over to your house with your fav ice cream and a playlist of all your favorite songs if you’ve had a hell of a day. He’s the guy who will be there for you no matter what.
Chuck is the type of guy who will do the right thing no matter how much it hurts him. He’s the guy who will sacrifice it all for those that loves even if it means risking his life. He is all about family: Ellie, Awesome, Morgan, Sarah and Casey. Yes, even Big Mike and, um, well, Jeff and Lester. Yeah them too. And that’s what we love about him. He’s loyal to a fault, good hearted, well meaning and a sweetheart. And yeah he’ll dress up for Comic Con and drag you along but you’ll have a hell of time there. He’s a dork but he can laugh at himself and he can fix your computer, pretty snazzy, I know! LOL.
Chuck is neither hip nor the hot happening it show of the moment. It just is. Season 3 had its ups and downs and there were gripes but this finale shows us yet again why we love the show, the writers and actors. There was action, humor, moments that made our hearts melt and there was a pay off (those wicked, infuriating, clever, wonderful writers). Looking back I feel as if over the seasons it’s been a natural progression, very organic, never hurried. The writers took their time. Nothing felt crammed in or over the top to me. There didn’t seem to be a need to outdo last week. Although for a moment there, some episodes made me wonder if I was watching a season finale and they didn’t tell us. LOL.
I for one think 3 months or however long we’ll have to wait for the new season is too long. But it’s worth the wait. This TV show Chuck is a keeper. And I can’t wait to see where they take us. To me the finale didn’t feel like an ending, it felt like just the beginning of a new chapter. Sorta like Supernatural, a reboot of sorts.
Okay enough of my blathering. I return you now to your regularly scheduled program whatever that may be. I’m blogging at TRS Blue today. Stop by, leave a comment and be entered to win 5 Changeling Credits. Good luck! http://trsblue.blogspot.com/ (Warning Adult Content)
Oh and watch White Collar on USA Network (or whatever channel it airs where you are) How can you resist those gorgeous blue eyes of Matt Boomer? Seriously, he’s just gorgeous. I said that already didn’t I? Am I drooling? Sorry. *blush*
