Chuck is an action-comedy television program from the United States created by Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak. The series is about an "average computer-whiz-next-door" who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working in the CIA; the message embeds the only remaining copy of the world's greatest spy secrets into Chuck's brain.
In other words, Chuck is now my nightly addiction for the past few weeks, occupying free nights after work as I now don't watch any shows on TV but rather prefer to watch them at my own pace and advertisement free online.

I started the routine with watching the first few episodes of Mercy, a Grey's Anatomy-ish show about the clinical and personal lives of three nurses with various interesting backgrounds. As much as I wanted the show to succeed because it's one of the few shows portraying the other side of hospital dramas as it centers on nurses and does not treat doctors as know-it-all gods, it failed to capture my attention much longer. And that's saying something since I am a registered nurse and could somehow relate to the show.

On the other hand, even though I can much relate to a computer geek turned CIA agent as a hamburger can, Chuck has that magnetic storyline that just makes you come back for more. Especially if there are three seasons still to catch up with.

I am now on the first episodes of Season 3 after just 2 weeks of watching the show. All I know is I'll be quite saddened when the day comes that I don't have new episodes to watch anymore and has to wait for a week for the next saga to air. Unthinkable!
