Out with the Old: Chuck TV Series

This weekend, I got out season 1 of the TV series Chuck.  I know, it has only been off the air one year, so can I really say I was getting an "old series" out to watch?  Well, regardless, it was fun.  Chuck is a TV series that aired 5 seasons (2007-12).  The story line began with Chuck working as part of the Nerd Herd at the Buy More (think Best Buy).  He had actually attended Stanford and was quite the brilliant "Nerd" but had gotten kicked out...long story.  His life changes when he becomes a walking computer and the CIA and NSA need him to catch the bad guys and avert danger.

It is not an earth shattering story line, but it is cute and fun for adults.  There are some sexual scenarios and drug references, as well as the action/violence of chasing the bad guys.  But in all the plot is interesting and the characters engaging.
