"Chuck" I "discovered" a new television show yesterday: "Chuck." While many might chortle when they read that I discovered "Chuck"—since the show is in its third season—it was a discovery to me. I had not previously heard of the show. I stumbled upon the pilot at Hulu. I watched the pilot and was very pleasantly surprised by it and enthusiastically sought later episodes. Hulu led me to Warner Bros., where I was delighted to discover that one may queue all episodes and have them play in order automatically by using this link.

If you are unfamiliar with "Chuck," "Chuck" is easily one of the most entertaining shows on television. The photography is excellent (the special effects rival those of any major movie), the writing is smart and quick, the acting is superb (from the extras to the main characters), the story is dramatic and visionary. "Chuck" has it all: Love and romance, an agent searching for a good fight, and an average guy tossed into the world of espionage.
