Watch Chuck

Chuck is an NBC dramedy that mixed the spy genre with comedy. The main character and protagonist is Chuck, a dorky guy in his late twenties who works at a retail establishment fixing computers. He is joined by his best friend, Morgan, who works with him. One day, he receives an email from his friend and former roommate, Bryce, who works for the CIA. When Chuck opens the email, he inadvertently downloads something called the Intersect into his brain, which contains the contents of the entire CIA database. From there, Chuck becomes very valuable to the CIA, and eventually becomes a full-fledged agent with the help of the beautiful Sarah and the cantankerous Casey. Chuck is unique in the sense that it combines a spy show with comedic elements. Most spy shows have their funny moments, but none so deftly combine the two as Chuck does. Every episode has moments that are specifically written to be funny. Sometimes these moments are separate from the spy world, like when the guys at the Buy More, where Chuck works, do something funny. Other times, they include funny moments within the spy world, as there are lots of laughs to be had as Chuck adjusts to becoming a CIA agent, given that he has no idea how to use a gun or how to protect himself in a fight and is pretty awkward in general.

It also shows the evolution of a boy to a man. When we first meet Chuck, he is directionless. He lives with his sister, he works at a dead-end job even though we later find out that he attended Stanford, and he has no romantic life whatsoever. By the end of the series, Chuck is a man transformed. He has graduated college, become an excellent spy, has finally put his intelligence to good use, has come to terms with his relationships with his father and mother, has earned the respect of his colleagues, and has fallen in love and married another successful spy, Sarah.

The show puts forth the premise that even if life isn't how you planned it, within you lies the potential for greatness. Chuck is just a regular guy who isn't living up to his potential until his former roommate emails him something. It's a memo to the audience that they, too, can achieve greatness, no matter where they are in life at the moment.
