Chuck vs. James Bond! Well, sorta.

Last night’s episode of Chuck was all about Timothy Dalton. (The actor, famous for playing James Bond back in the 80s, appears as an evil Russian baddie named Alexie Volcoff, who is determined to kill our poor Chuck.)

Volcoff crashes Chuck and his sister Ellie’s Thanksgiving dinner and he almost kills … well everybody. But Chuck’s mom saves the day in the end. And all’s well that ends well. Read the rest of this entry »

Best *goram* episode of Chuck in a while

I am a tad bit behind on watching NBC’s Chuck, so I’m actually just now getting to last Monday’s episode. It’s about three minutes in, and the greatest, most amazing, most geektastic thing ever just happened:

Summer Glau just walked up, and she’s wearing a Buy More uniform.

My inner Firefly nerd is totally geeking out right now. You have no idea. This is so epic.

Mustafa’s Chuck appearance disappoints

(Skip to 1:36-1:43 for clips of Mustafa from the episode.)

Isaiah Mustafa is totally awesome. And Chuck Bartowski is beyond awesome. So it stands to reason that putting the two of them together would result in so much awesomeness it would simply be too much to contain.

You’d think so. Right?

Isaiah Mustafa (The Old Spice Guy)’s guest appearance on Chuck was cool I guess, but it was definitely not epic. Read the rest of this entry »

Nerd Herders rejoice. Chuck is back!

Chuck is back. Man, I forgot how much I love this show.

Wait, no I didn’t. I’ve only been waiting for this moment all summer … and it has finally arrived. My favorite total dork-turned-superspy is finally back on TV.

Hello, Zachary Levi. I missed you. So much.

Chuck and Sarah are all cute and coupley this season. Chuck and Morgan are going on rogue spy missions in an attempt to track down Chuck’s long-missing spy mama (played by Terminator alum Linda Hamilton).

And the Buy More (which burned down last season) is now fully rebuilt and turned into a full-fledged CIA/NSA sub station.

Did I mention how much I adore this TV show? I really do.

Covert Affairs Actor Starred in a Chuck-like Precursor

As much as I adore watching Covert Affairs (the new USA network spy drama I just blogged about), it definitely has made me want to see Christopher Gorham in some sort of role where he is not having to fake being blind.

So after a bit of internet research (okay… IMDB profile stalking), I discovered that Gorham was the star of his own spy drama back in the day. The show was called Jake 2.0, and it ran for one season before getting cancelled on UPN back in 2004.

Jake 2.0 is actually really similar to NBC’s 2007 spy dramaedy Chuck … in sense that a nerdy, awkward computer guy accidentally comes into contact with fancy technology and suddenly becomes a government superspy. Yeah. Very similar. Read the rest of this entry »

Old Spice Guy & Chuck! (Picture Link Included)

Here is one of the greatest pieces of stunt casting news I have heard in a very long time: Isaiah Mustafa is guest-starring on NBC’s Chuck!

That’s right. The Old Spice Guy himself will be playing a CIA agent in an upcoming episode my favorite geek-filled, action-packed spy comedy of all time!

(Read my What I’m Watching review of NBC’s Chuck here.)

Seriously. I am so stoked for this crossover! Mustafa even tweeted about he appearance on his Twitter page, and he was kind enough to provide a picture of himself and Chuck star Zachary Levi behind the scenes!

You can view the TwitPic by clicking here.

It’s worth it just to see Old Spice Guy in that trademark green-with-yellow-lettering Buy More shirt. And of course, Mr. Levi himself isn’t really that bad to look at, either.

What I’m Watching: Chuck

Overview: Chuck (Zachary Levi) was unfairly kicked out of Stanford and ended up working as part of the Nerd Herd at a local Buy More electronics store when his old college roommate downloaded a top-secret government computer database called “the Intersect” into his brain.

Now teamed with sexy CIA agent Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) and gruff Colonel John Casey (Adam Baldwin), he travels the world on secret spy missions, all the while struggling to keep this new life secret from is family and Buy More co-workers.

Recent highlights: Superman star Brandon Routh showed up this season as Agent Daniel Shaw, a perfect roadblock for the otherwise nicely progressing love story between Chuck and Sarah. For a while, the only question is if Sarah would choose the geekily lovable Chuck or the heroic and confident Shaw. Then things took a bit more sinister turn. The most recent episode seemed to pretty effectively wrap up Shaw’s storyline. Catch up with the series on Hulu if you’re interested in what happened.

Why I watch: The spy plotlines and intricate action secens seem right out of a spy movie, but then only minutes later Chuck is back at the Buy More, caught up in the comedic antics of his misfit co-workers. It’s a weird mix of James Bond meets Dumb and Dumber, but it works.
