We’re trying something new (to us) this episode: One of us tries to sell the others on some beloved but underappreciated bit of nerd culture. This time, Mary schools Paul and Rob on Chuck, a NBC series that aired from 2007-12. Despite Rob’s skepticism and Paul’s amnesia, Mary’s enthusiasm won the day.
- Here’s the fansite that spearheaded the renewal campaign.
- Zachary Levi’s site, Nerd Machine
- One of Mary’s favorite episodes featuring Missile Command and Rush: “Chuck vs. Tom Sawyer”
- Angela Merkel backrub
- Paul insisted that we link to Lo-Pan.
- We stumbled on season length, but here you go: the first season was a short 13-episode run, while subsequent seasons were more typical at about 20 each.
- We joked that Matt Bomer might show up on Arrow because he’s hot, but in fact he will star on the next season of American Horror Story because he’s hot.
- Zachary Levi will be in Heroes Reborn, which leaves us with confused feelings all around.
