Prepare To Be Heartwarmed
The NBC series Chuck gets better with each episode, and the most recent episode, "Chuck vs. Santa Claus" was no exception. A unique hybrid of action, adventure, espionage, heartfelt drama, and character-centered comedy, Chuck is part of the current "geek chic" trend happening now. (You can read more about that here.) Zachary Levi gives a pitch perfect performance as the super-smart but somewhat-downtrodden Nerd Herder who's plunged into a world of spies, secret missions and constant danger and excitement. As "Chuck vs. Santa Claus" made abundantly clear, Chuck's Best Buy-like Buy More electronics emporium is located in beautiful downtown Burbank, specifically at 9000 Burbank Blvd. New episodes resume on February 2 and in the meantime you can see full episodes at nbc.com, so be sure and check out Chuck.
