(From my understanding, the audio in the beginning is out of sync.)



Saving The World At $11 An Hour.

From executive producer, Josh Schwartz (The O.C.) and executive producer-director McG (Charlie's Angels, We Are Marshall) comes a one-hour, comedic spy thriller about Chuck Bartowski (Zachary Levi, Less Than Perfect) - a computer geek who is catapulted into a new career as the government's most vital secret agent. When Chuck 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 Buy More. Instead of fighting computer viruses, he must fight assassins and international terrorists. With the government's most precious secrets in Chuck's head, Major John Casey (Adam Baldwin, My Bodyguard) of the NSA assumes the responsibility of protecting him. His partner is the CIA's top agent (and Chuck's first date in years) Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strzechowski, Gone). They'll keep him safe by trading in his pocket protector for a bulletproof vest. Also starring are Joshua Gomez (Without a Trace) as Chuck's best buddy Morgan and Sarah Lancaster (What About Brian?) as Chuck's ever-supportive sister Ellie. Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak wrote Chuck, which is produced by College Hill Pictures and Wonderland Sound and Vision in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Linkage?

Does Chuck speak English after he downloads the repository of Ancient knowledge or are we going to have to call in Daniel Jackson to interpret? Oh wait..., wrong show.

What's with all these "leaked" pilot episodes all of a sudden?
Some think it's piratage. Some think it's done by the networks to generate buzz.

I think the networks are trying to get the viewing public to view scripted programs on the internet to leave lots of space in their broadcast schedule to air reality/unscripted dribble. :D

The only program I watched via internet was 'Jericho' after it was "uncancelled" since I had deleted it unwatched when they cancelled it.

I wouldn't be too surprised if the networks get the idea that if it's viable to put things on the web and people will watch that they may even have an itchier trigger finger (if that's possible???) on pulling low-rated shows and burning them off that way.

Gives them a head start on the cancellations. :mad:
I was thinking about that and it may not be so far from the truth. Consider it a broader spectrum focus group. They may have short orders for some of these shows and if the get bad word of mouth they don't have to spend more money on episodes to get going before the show actually airs. If it does well, they can move from there, if not they can cut it off.

I definitely think this could even further shorten shows potential life-cycle which is a bad thing.

Just finished it and I really liked it. Adam Baldwin is always good, the CIA agent is smoking and it just had a good vibe. I'm glad NBC moved it to Mondays, if only so I can still watch House and record Reaper, which is very similar. Don't know if it'll last but I'll be watching for sure.

I've yet to watch it, save from the first few minutes of the opening. Does the audio get back in sync later in the episode?

The pilot is very promising. It reminds me of "The 40 Year-Old Virgin" meets "Mission Impossible." ;)
Zachary Levi is 27. Sounds more like Jake 2.0 with secret knowledge instead of increased physical skills.

I'm wasn't extremely impressed with this show either. From the previews NBC had been running, I really thought this would be one I'd like too. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure I'll still watch come this Fall, but it just seemed off to me.

One of the things that really irked me is how all the techno-babble was astouningly unbelievable. Most shows at least make an attempt to have the dialogue be based in a bit of reality, but they didn't even try. Not to mention, the entire premise of the show is pretty far fetched too.

Meh, the more I think about it... Maybe I won't be watching come this Fall after all. :cool:

Agreed. I'll be setting a Season Pass for this for sure.

If only TiVo could get guide data for the upcoming series loaded so we could actually create season passes this early.
