Category Archives: Best TV Episodes Ever
For my second post in the “Best TV Episodes Ever” series I turn to Chuck. Another American TV series, although this time a little calmer and tongue-in-cheek on the drama front and out there with the comedy. Chuck is a dramedy centring on the life of nerd and computer wiz Chuck Bartowski who, up until the series began, worked in the Buy More (a parody of Best Buy type stores in the US, think Curry’s in the UK) as a computer fixer until he inadvertently uploaded all the Governments secrets in to his head via “The Intersect” – effectively a super computer full of confidential information, and as such, a great asset to the US Government.
Chuck is currently in its fifth and last season and has evolved over time to become a great story of Chuck himself growing from computer geek to super CIA spy, with or without The Intersect. Chuck has had fairly low ratings for the last few seasons but has survived muchly thanks to the network that carries the show (NBC) having such terrible ratings overall that Chuck looks pretty good in comparison.
I decided to add a new feature to my blog. A compilation of what I consider to be the best TV episodes of all time. I’ll add to this here and there but what better place to start than my favourite episode from my most loved TV show ever. Lost.
For those that don’t know, Lost is an American serial drama that aired for 6 seasons and 121 episodes between 2004-2010 on the ABC network. At it’s peak it had a massive 22 million viewers and stayed strong right until the end still captivating 14 million viewers for its final episode – and this is just figures in the US! Lost was a worldwide phenomenon and had devoted fans in a large number of countries, giving Lost one of the largest, intelligent and loyal fan base a TV show has ever had.
