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!
