Today's Kool Idea: Chuck on NBC

Bookmark and Share
Okay, we all have at least one TV show that feeds our obsession with lite, almost brainless entertainment. Chuck is just that show for us at The Daily Kool.

He's your run of the mill computer whiz working for Buy-More with his equally nerdy friends. But Chuck's average life is suddenly turned upside down when an old friend, who happens to work for the CIA, sends Chuck a mysterious encoded e-mail and the world's greatest spy secrets are embedded in Chuck's brain. Now Chuck has unwittingly become the government's most powerful weapon and the fate of both the country and the world now lie in his hands. A Buy More day job and saving the world are all in a day's work for Chuck.

With the government's most precious secrets in Chuck's head (and the fate of the world lying in his hands), Major John Casey (Adam Baldwin, "My Bodyguard") of the National Security Agency is responsible for protecting him. Casey's partner is the CIA's top agent, Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski, "Gone"). They try to keep Chuck safe by trading in his pocket protector for a bulletproof vest. Casey takes a job working with Chuck at the Buy More, and Sarah becomes his undercover "girlfriend" working at the yogurt shop across the street.

The Daily Kool team LOVES Chuck. NBC has, in our opinion, gotten everything right with a witty script and likable characters...a perfect blend of action, romance, comedy and adventure rolled into one truly entertaining series. One thing we especially like about Chuck is that every episode is basically can miss a week and not feel completely Lost...sorry, ABC...we couldn't resist! But really...who would want to miss an episode of Chuck anyway? Chuck is a great antidote to those Monday blues, and is a guaranteed good time. Check it out at 8pm tonight and let us know if you think it's as "kool" as we do!

  1. My family are big fans of Chuck, but I think my husband only watches the scenes with "Sarah"
