In somewhat of surprise, Netflix and NBC have come together to bring the people what they want: Chuck!
Being one of my favorite shows of all time, Chuck coming to Netflix is surprising but welcome. Here’s the gist of the show: Chuck is a super nerd who becomes a super spy after ex-friend/rival Bryce Larkin sends him an email that downloads a government database of CIA and NSA data directly into Chuck’s brain. Once Chuck sees a symbol, tattoo or baddie he “flashes” and alerts his handlers John Casey (former badass of renown Adam Baldwin who played Jayne in the short-lived TV show Firefly) and Sarah Walker ( who is played by uber-hottie Yvonne Strahovski) of the impending conflict. Of course, things never go according to plan and the shenanigans ensue!
Needless to say, the show was awesome…but very niche. Chuck was cancelled on three separate occasions (after seasons 2, 3 and 4), but the fans were not only outraged but persistent and the show lasted a full five seasons. Not too shabby. Now you can see how awesome this show is by either subscribing to or turning on your Netflix account! All five seasons of this fantastic show are now accessible on the streaming juggernaut and you can…no, you should go watch it. Now! Really, what are you waiting for!?!
