I intend to use this section to share my own notes for new fans or fellow Chucksters doing one there many rewatches.
As always turn to ChuckTV.net for anything and everything on Chuck.
First off what is Chuck about?
Chuck is about an ordinary guy who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working for the CIA, the message embeds a copy of the United States greatest spy secrets into Chuck’s brain (The Intersect).
Chuck sums it up best in the show- “Hi my name is Charles Bartowski, but you can call me Chuck. This is my life its filled with spies, car chases, computer stealing ninjas and me saving the day”
The show is part spy/action and part love story/drama. Ultimately the Chuck story is about about the Heroes Journey and finding love in the end.
Season 1 promo:
And so it begins….
On Monday September 24th, 2007 at 8pm it began…and unexpectedly changed the lives of millions of soon to be “Chucksters” all over the world.
Back in 2007 just before Chuck began I had just finished high school, bought my first car, got my first job and was excited to head off to college…. Just before September my car broke down…I got the flu very bad and had to postpone college indefinitely. Now stuck at home at a mininum wage job I caught a promo for Chuck by pure accident and tuned into the pilot that night. I instanly connected with the show, but had know idea that Chuck would get me through some bad & good times over the next 5 years.
