You Don't Have A Clue

Unlike Chuck, today wasn't a big day for me. However, I did get to watch episode eight of Chuck, entitled, "Chuck vs. The Truth" and I loved it to bits!!! In a nutshell -- and according to Wikipedia, Chuck is about an "average computer-whiz-next-door" who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend, a rogue CIA agent, which happens to embed the world's greatest spy secrets into his brain.

So obviously, we've established that this show is made of all sorts of crazy, but I've been watching this series from episode one, and although I'm not sure if it'll last long (due to the writer's strike), I'm really hoping it makes it through it.

Other than the fact that Zachary Levi is the most awesome geek nerd in the planet, this show was also created by Josh Schwartz of The OC and Gossip Girl fame. But really, the cast has great chemistry together! Everyone is so fit in the roles!

So in this week's episode, I thought it was awesome that Chuck gets to meet another lady, other than Sarah, because obviously this woman is his CIA handler, thus nothing can ever happen. This is where Lou enters -- played by none other than the most amazing Rachel Bilson. Lou, is obviously unaware of Chuck's spy life, thus her direct-ness with him. I think it's refreshing to see this, especially to Chuck, who's gotten so used to deception. I'm sure he was taken aback by her forwardness. Lou is my idol. I'm totally loving how she's so direct with him. I wish I could be this direct in real life.

Lou: Listen, if you're not going to tell me the truth, I will. I like you. I like almost everything about you. I think you're cute. You're funny. Our vast height difference intrigues me.

Still, as much as I love the Chuck-Lou dynamic, it was so obvious that Sarah was lying to Chuck about not wanting to have anything in the future with him (despite being under the influence of the truth serum). My heart broke when Chuck broke up with Sarah, but at the same time, I was glad because at least now he's able to go live his life and cross out things on his list of things to do.

Chuck: We need to break up.
Sarah: What?
Chuck: You know, like fake break up our pretend relationship. I just can't do this anymore, you know? The longer we go, the longer we keep trying to fool people into believing we're a real couple. The person I keep fooling the most is me.

This crazy love triangle is so convoluted, I wonder how things will turn out in the end. But it's not just Chuck. Even Casey is hella funny and Morgan too! Some other funny lines mentioned this week were by Chuck, in a fit of truth serum, tells Casey (his NSA handler) that his jaw was sculpted by Michaelangelo. And then of course there's Captain Awesome (who's just so awesome) and Ellie (Chuck's sister) who are the cutest couple ever.

And of course, the Nerd Herd over at the Buy More where Chuck and his best friend, Morgan work and all the crazy supporting cast that works with them.

I know I'm probably not making any sense, so you really must watch this show, like right now. But the bottom line is, I'm in love with Chuck. I really hope this show gets saved even after the Writer's Strike because I would certainly miss watching my favorite Buy More employee try to save the day.
