Chuck & Bones – Reflections

Last night, I finally got a chance to sit down and watch the pilot of Chuck and the season premiere of Bones.

I thoroughly enjoyed Chuck. It was cute, it was different and it was engaging. Chuck was an adorably geeky character – one who has trouble talking to women. His attempt to flee his own birthday party was quite funny. Unbeknownst to Chuck, his college roommate and nemesis, Bryce Larkin, has taken a computer full of state secrets and downloaded them to his handheld device. For some reason (one that we may never really understand), he sends these secrets to Chuck via email. Chuck assumes it is a happy birthday email from Bryce with a computer game challenge. Chuck responds to the game and inadvertently ends up seeing all of the secrets flash across the computer screen as images. These images now live in Chuck’s mind. Enter CIA and NSA agents who are trying to recover the data that Bryce took. It turns out that Bryce was a rogue spy (there is very little information about this part of the storyline). The agents discover that Chuck has all of the data in his brain and must now stay and watch over him. One of the funniest scenes was when his boss at Buy More tells him he has a new recruit to train – and the new recruit is the NSA officer (played by Adam Baldwin). I’m definitely looking forward to future episodes.

I enjoyed the Bones premiere. The cannibalistic story line was a bit grizzly, but I guess many of the plots are in that vein. Angela and Hodgins were hysterical. The details of Angela’s first marriage to a man who signed the marriage certificate as X were also comical. I will admit that it will take my time to get used to Hodgins new hair cut. I’m glad Zach came back from Iraq, but am not sure why he even went. Too weird!
