Chuck 1.03 - Chuck Versus the Tango - I worship at the television altar
Chuck 1.03 - Chuck Versus the Tango
Mondays almost always suck at my work, and today was no exception. As usual, I couldn't seem to get out of there at the end of the day, and ended up charging in my front door at 7:45 pm, with barely enough time to get out of my work clothes before my shows began. I was totally distracted, and irritated, and barely paid attention at first. But pretty soon that all changed, because I was watching Chuck.

This show continues to charm me. The plots are silly and not terribly plausible, but I couldn't care less. This show is cute, and hilarious, and never fails to bring a big fat smile to my face. I love the characters and the way they all interact, and they always take me to my happy place. Case in point? Tonight's episode.

Wow, we started out with a bang, literally, as everyone who touches the painting gets offed in short order! Okay, I'm awake now! :) I thought the painting was one of those hidden picture things, with some kind of embedded subliminal kill order or something! LOL!

It was fun to meet the rest of the Herd tonight, and to see the easy friendship they share with Chuck. They were the perfect mix of devoted and selfish - very real, I thought. I loved the part where the one girl said "speak for yourself" when Morgan said none of them had ever had sex with a beautiful woman. BWAH! And how funny was Morgan's phobia of old computers? Morgan is so weird. :)

Adam Baldwin is a delight. That running gag where he throws Morgan down by pushing him in the face? hee! He's also fond of bonsai and peering menacingly through venetian blinds. And in the end, he's always there for Chuck.

Chuck himself continues to be made of love. The bit with the kid in the beginning? My ovaries totally exploded. *smishes Chuck* The way he is with his sister? Tangoing with Captain Awesome? I adore this guy! He looked very nice tonight too, both in the tux and in that red T-shirt at the end. Yum.

The art auction was fun, and I liked that Morgan had his own little B-story at the same time. Chuck was great with La Ciudad. I thought the spy stuff was particularly engaging in this episode. Even though I had seen the part where Chuck gives up his real name a bunch of times in promos, I still laughed. It was funny! Later, when the bad guys showed up at Buy More, that was a nice set of action sequences, especially the girl fight on the roof. Also, as always, fabulous music. It's all good.

So while Mondays may drag me down, Monday nights make it all better. Thanks, Chuck!

Chuck is made of win!! This episode is one big blur of smiles. (And when are we going to get his shirt off? That red t-shirt indicated that would be a worthwhile plot development.)

No coherent thoughts, just gushing.

So, I wasn't the only one who noticed that T-shirt, right? I'm so glad there's someone else who is liking this show as much as I do - I keep seeing people who post that it's dumb or boring. Buh?

I'm sending Sylar after them.
