C is for Chuck Bartowski
Chuck: "Sometimes the nerd gets the girl."
If I had to list my top three favourite TV shows ('cause I could never just pick one), Chuck would be one of them, and Chuck Bartowski is why.
At the beginning of the show, he is an under-achieving nerd, working at a Buy More, kicked out of Stanford because of his best friend's betrayal. And then he becomes nerd-turned-secret-agent, and it's marvelous. Anyone would love Chuck, but a geek like me appreciates him even more for all the gaming, sci-fi movie and computer references he makes, his awkwardness and nerd charm.
Watching his relationships with the other characters--his sister and her boyfriend Captain Awesome, his nerdy best friend, his tough CIA and NSA handlers and fellow Nerd Herd workers--in the show grow and change is much fun too.
It's easy to see why CIA agent Sarah Walker would fall in love with this character. I know I do every time I watch the show!
Shout out to blogger buddy C: This one's gotta go to Christine Rains for being a wonderful blogger friend and a hard working geek writer mom.
