Chuck S1, or how I have a fun show again  
Also, I'd rather post about this than rant about my exam plan being completely fucked up. Or my PM.

So I can't exactly remember who recommended this show to me first. It was either elliotsmelliot or hopelessfangirl? But anyway, whoever it was, THANK YOU. I'm utterly in love with it and the fact that it's taking ages to dl S2 isn't helping me much, lol. And I really really needed a light show after Pushing Daisies got canceled and this one fits the bill so much it's not even funny. Though I'd have probably started watching it sooner if I had known people go around with TYRELL CORPORATION BAGS. I MEAN, BLADE RUNNER INSPIRED BAGS. <3

1. Okay, so, I think I'm in love this thing because I'm totally of the same breed of whoever writes it. I mean, they got an entire episode ripping stuff off Casablanca. WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE? I just love how nerdy this show is. Right, it's probably the point, but still, it makes me glee that they referenced both my favorite movies more than once. I'm still in love with the Blade Runner bag.

2. I think I don't even have a favorite character. They're all so awesome! Though... right. Maybe Awesome. But I don't know really, I <33 them all. Chuck is just too great and ha, hi, same breed of yours truly even if I think that he's better at maths than I am, him and Morgan are so <3333 that I can't even say (and Morgan makes me lol so much, seriously). AWESOME IS AWESOME. God, I love that there's a character named AWESOME. Chuck's sister is just all kinds of love, Sarah is kickass, Casey is <3333333 and hey, ADAM BALDWIN. I mean. All the Buy More employees crack me up so much, too.

Also, Bryce is hot. I think I need him to be in S2 kind of a lot. Hot. Mm. I fear I'll end up watching White Collar, but whatever, not the place. And everyone has great chemistry and they crack me up and I love that it can also get angsty and just, I loved every single ep until now.

3. My favorite for now is 1x12 because of the utter Casablanca reference (and Ilsa dumping Casey in front of a tv airing Casablanca itself + the beginning of a beautiful friendship thing made my week), but random favorite moments: Casey being all Dean Winchester-ing his poor car, AWESOME TEACHING CHUCK TANGO, Awesome asking Chuck for Ellie's hand and pretty much everything Awesome does including dressing up as Adam, Sarah kissing Chuck out of the blue, that ep where they went back to Stanford and they had the Bryce flashbacks, pretty much that whole ep where Bryce came back, too, Morgan trying to cover for Chuck at the job interview, everything that Buy More's boss does. Oh, and Casey eavesdropping on people = A+++.

4. Also, working in Buy More seems awesome, since they don't work at all. Goooo them.

5. Surprisingly, while a lot of things in this show are utterly GAY, I'm really just shipping Ellie/Awesome. It feels kind of wrong that I'm not shipping anyone but well, I like Chuck/Sarah or I see the point anyway and for the rest I don't get a shipping vibe. Feels weird. I'll adjust to it. ;)

Even if Bryce/Chuck did pass through my head for a moment.

6. Jesus, one character is named AWESOME. I'm still getting over the awesomeness of that.

7. I'm really enjoying the whole plot, even if the CIA heads are idiots. *scowls* But srsly, the whole idea is just awesome and fun and I just needed a fun show. If it's as nerdy as this one is? Not complaining.

8. The Christmas ep was also so good. AND THE THANKSGIVING ONE. And it's two AM and I should probably be in bed so I'll probably cut this here even if I'd talk about this until tomorrow. *cough* When is that damn download finishing, I want S2. *cough*

Okay. I'll go stop procrastinating and get into bed. MAYBE. Also because tomorrow is my last day of classes.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Season 2 is even better. I can't wait for S3 to start in January.

Jesus, one character is named AWESOME. I'm still getting over the awesomeness of that.

And he totally lives up to the name. Awesome!

Ahhh, my Chuck icon is gone!

I so can't wait to start S2! I finished d/loading it yesterday so I'll probably watch it on study breaks during the holidays. -nod-

Awesome SO lives up to his name!!! :D
Fangirlage like WHOA.: CHUCK // C&S - ........*kiss*hopelessfangirl on December 18th, 2009 04:07 am (UTC)
The geekiness of Chuck knows no bounds! =D I'm so happy a show like that is on the air. I remember in one of the earlier episodes Chuck had some computer science books about the C++ language in his room and I was all, "ZOMG, I HAVE THAT BOOK!" Srsly, how awesome can a show get?

I love Awesome so much. The really pretty ones are rarely my faves (with the exception of those nice Winchesters boys, but they're a special case altogether ;)), but there's literally nothing I don't love about Awesome, so it's awesome. Him and Ellie are so much love.

I love that none of the characters on this show are annoying. That's the key to an enjoyable show. ♥ I think Morgan kinda annoyed me a bit at first, along with Jeff and Lester, but I love them all now. And Casey, whom I still love, is possibly my least favourite character, which is ironic because I started watching this show for him in the first place. LOL.

I can't really remember much of S1 to comment on specifics, but I'm so glad you're watching and loving this show! S2 out-does S1, so you're in for much more awesome and Awesome! ;)

I LOVE HOW GEEKY IT IS. Also because it's as geeky as I am but whatever, I'm on board. It's so GOOD, I can't even say it. AND OMG LOL THAT'S THE STANFORD EP WHEN HE MAKES FRIENDS WITH BRYCE <3333 I just love that they reference nerdy stuff and I get it lol.

AWESOME!!! HE'S SO AWESOME. (And ha, Winchesters + Cas = totally different case) and mm, AWESOME, I repeat. I can't choose a favorite but he's just too good to be true. Him and Ellie = <33333333

Yeah, that's so true. Apart from the CIA heads, but I see them for like five minutes each ep so I can deal with them. I kind of loved them all at the first ep. but then again, they're people who don't want to work. I completely understand them. ;) I kind of got Chuck recced also because of Adam Baldwin so I guess I saw it for Casey too but I really can't choose a fav. or least fav.

And thanks, I'm LOVING it!! I can't wait to start S2. :D

It's just so good!! :D

Casey and his car got me laughing for ages. AGES. I just couldn't not, lol. And now I want him to meet Dean, lol. THE TANGO IS PROBABLY MY SINGLE FAVORITE SCENE. Also Awesome is SO awesome. I can't wait to start S2!

Or my PM.

If you don't go to the rants, the rants will be brought to you. (Why yes, I am a terrible human being!) But honestly, I don't know if I want to laugh, cry or roll my eyes at the whole thing. Probably option number three.

You aren't a terrible human being. I think I am too, but I don't care. And option 3 is my reaction to it too, but I'll probably post about it today because I need to rant and I kind of feel like venting and I can't do it to anyone in person. But yes. That. ;)

I'm so glad you like Chuck :) It's definitely my show of the moment, and I can't stop watching the S2 finale - it's the ending to end all endings and might have been the last we saw of Chuck - talk about awesome cliffhanger endings :) Thankfully they renewed it and the new season starts next month!
the female ghost of tom joad: chuck captain awesomejanie_tangerine on December 19th, 2009 10:36 am (UTC)
Chuck is SO great omg!! And now I finished S2 and I'm all excited for it. And knowing that it has a S3 is good for the soul. ;) I can't wait to get to that finale!! :D

In TOTAL agreement, re: points #1-8.

I also have a special soft spot for Awesome. He's just so ... awesome! I love how earnest and laid-back and genuinely, all-around sweet he is. I can't wait until the next season starts!
the female ghost of tom joad: chuck captain awesomejanie_tangerine on December 19th, 2009 10:37 am (UTC)
HEEE, god to know!

AWESOME IS AWESOME. There's no other way to put things. He's so great I can't even say. I can't wait to finish it!! :D
