Chuck (Mission: Impossible Opening Credits)

Chuck is one of my most recent discoveries and has quickly risen to become one of my all time favorite TV shows. When a “Nerd Herd” employee of the local Buy More has the only copy of all the government secrets embedded in his mind, 2 CIA/NSA agents are assigned to protect him as he goes about his daily life. The series follows their adventures as Chuck tries to live a normal life, whilst also going on secret missions every episode, you know to protect the world and all. Throw in the fact his handler, Sarah has to pose as his girlfriend and you also have a not so typical romance arc thrown in the picture.

All this sounds ludicrous, but put together is a highly entertaining mix of spy/action/comedy/romance.

Started on Monday nights on Virgin 1 last week and has been airing in the states last year. Its recently been picked up for a second series, can’t wait!

As a distraction from revision I created a montage of some of the best action/adventure clips from the show to none other than Mission Impossible. Enjoy!

    I’d have thought you’d have found this ages ago, and it is great, I’m still waiting for the second series (having completed the first earlier in the year) ;)

  2. I know it’s unlike me to miss a show like this, somehow it slipped through the cracks! It took a free download on iTunes to show me the way ;)

    I’ve only seen the first episode so far and it was enjoyable enough that I shall watch the second. I felt they were pushing it somewhat on the hopelessly inaccurate portrayals of day to day computing though. Like when the Apple Mac Pro, with the Apple logo covered up as is the way in US TV shows, falls from a height of about three feet and is damaged to the extent that the harddisk not only comes out of the case but actually breaks open. Or the virus which makes smoke come out of your laptop.

    I love the mission impossible theme tune.
