Chuck: The Complete Series Collector Set (DVD)
When Chuck Bartowski opens an e-mail subliminally encoded with government secrets, he unwittingly downloads an entire server of sensitive data into his brain. Now, the fate of the world lies in the unlikely hands of a guy who works at a Buy More Electronics store. Instead of fighting computer viruses, he must now confront assassins and international terrorists. With the government's most precious secrets in Chuck's head, Major John Casey of the National Security Agency assumes the responsibility of protecting him. His partner is the CIA's top agent -- and Chuck's first date in years -- Sarah Walker. They'll try to keep him safe by trading in his pocket protector for a bulletproof vest. Also starring are Joshua Gomez as Morgan Grimes, Chuck's best buddy, and Sarah Lancaster as Chuck's ever-supportive sister, Ellie.]]>

I have only watched season 1 so far but I have been very disappointed by the setup of the blu-ray. It is nearly impossible to get to an actual menu for episode selection. Instead it just wants to play them all in order without a true menu option. This would not be a problem if I was going to watch a marathon but is HIGHLY inconvenient when I only want to watch one episode a night before bed and am therefore forced to skip ahead 2-4 episodes to get to the current one I want to watch.
There are some well recognized guest stars that populate this show such as Linda Hamilton, Timothy Dalton (check out his interview on what he found unique about this series), and Scott Bakula to name a few. But it is the regular cast that the real strength of the show. The characters -- every one -- has depth; you really care for them. Even what some would call secondary characters like Big Mike, Lester, Jeff, and Anna are anything but written and acted like they are secondary. The producers and writers did a great job here.
Yvonne Strahovski as Sarah - Chuck's (Zachery Levi) CIA handler and eventual love interest - is absolutely amazing in her ability to convey emotion and feelings through her eyes and facial expressions. But I also noticed Sarah Lancaster who play's Chuck's sister Ellie is a fine actress in her own right in emotional expression. Then there is Adam Baldwin as John Casey, NSA agent, who has some of the best one-liners in the show and some very weighty insights. I could go on but this is getting long enough.
Honestly, I look at what is offered today on TV/Cable and the majority are hard pressed to match Chuck's quality of story and character development. So much today is dark in nature and though Chuck has some dark times it is balanced with it's comedy, love, a well developed characters, and fun plots. You will NOT be bored.
One other thing to keep in mind: the show does develop over time and if you are like me it seems to happen too fast in certain aspects. But I had to remind myself that I can easily watch all shows back to back to back forgetting that I am cramming 5 seasons (5 years worth) in a very short time. So come join the Chuck fan base. My wife loves the show just as much as I do and I plan on telling others. Zachery Levi wants to do a 2 hour Chuck movie which is needed (the entire cast is on board with this; they want to do it). I hope though that he does more though like what the Duffer brothers have done with Stranger Things. The more Chuck the better.
Chuck is a witty, silly, sometimes irreverent look into international espionage. Chuck is an innocent tech support guy at a place that is hilariously similar to a mobile tech team embedded in a well-known electronics store. Though they take pains to ensure they are not that store, it is obvious what store they are parodying.
The presentation is family friendly, though some of the humor is definitely appropriate for teen and above.
The story unfolds into a rich tapestry of history and reveals as the seasons progress.
I can't wait to see how seasons 4 and 5 turn out!
