This is maybe not the most original show out there today, but it's certainly one of the best comedy/action shows. the cowardly nerdy Chuck aka "the intersect" works, as said before, at the Buy More, as a part of the "nerd herd", where he either is in the store selling electronics, or is out fixing computers for people. he's a regular nerd living an average nerdy life, when his life suddenly gets turned upside down. his average life suddenly becomes his 'cover' when he's turned into a secret agent, and this is where the fun begins. action, drama, humour, this show has it all. despite some filler episodes here and there, it's a fun show to watch with a lot of excitement and laughs. Adam Balwin, perhaps better known as 'Jayne' from Joss Whedon's "Firefly" and "Serenity" portraits a stone cold weapon maniac NSA agent John Casey, much like in Firefly(except the agent part). Now maybe this is just the Firefly fan in me talking, but Adam Baldwin is an amazing actor, and I love his parts in the show. emotionless and serious all the time, all though some times he shows a trace of joy or compassion. The CIA agent Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) is the more passionate and pretty version of John Casey, and she adds the sexy -factor to the show. she's intelligent, mysterious and beautiful. Now back to Chuck. he's a typical nerd (or at least the creators tries to make him look like a nerd), and he's funny. He's scared of doing anything dangerous, but he does it anyway if it's for those he love. He's in an undercover relationship with the beautiful Sarah Walker, and fools all of his nerdy friends and family. now there's a lot of elements in this show. there's a little bit of everything, and they put it together surprisingly well. it would seem a bit complicated, but it actually isn't, and maybe that's because the 'normal' characters in the show is someone you can relate to. funny, nerdy, action-filled and not too serious. if it was anything I would want more of in this show, was a bit more serious dialogues from time to time, as they try and make everything really really funny all the time.
