And now for something a little different.
As I traverse the interwebs looking for fun Chuck and other TV trivia and discussion I often note how many shows can have a polarizing character or guest star. Some of them aren’t even played by Brandon Routh, But recently the idea of a “rate the characters” poll has taken up residence in my head, and that will be coming, but as I thought through it, there are a lot of characters on Chuck. Sure some are there for the blink of an eye then gone, but Stanley Fitzroy (to name just one) made a mark on the show if you ask me. Others like Fernando and Skip are around constantly, but seldom heard from. So, join me after the jump to help me solve the too many characters quandary.
Chuck has featured a lot of characters over the years. IMDB lists 636 characters under full cast and crew. I need to narrow that down. So here’s the idea. I will take a first cut at the characters in several categories like Good Guy Spies, The Bartowski Extended Family, Bad Guys, etc. I have several nebulous criteria, such as having a line or an important interaction with one of the main cast. I will try to be complete, but inevitably will miss some, so if you feel it a great injustice that “Iranian Sargent” didn’t make the cut, you can let me know. No promises though.
But mostly I want to get an impression of the impression a character made on our little portion of the audience. I know this is going to be highly subjective in many ways, but I ask you attempt some objective consideration also. And no, you can’t vote Shaw out of the final poll, he’s too important a character. So for some characters this is just a fun first impression up or down rating. For other more minor characters it’ll be an indication they don’t need to be in that more involved poll. What can I say, we’ll have some fun and adapt as needed.
This was taken from a multiple choice template and I set the “correct” answer to Yeah, but that is just for purposes of my keeping track.
So for today’s assignment we have two. The extended Bartowski clan and the Buy Morons. Lets see who sinks or swims. As usual you can follow links above if the inline doesn’t play well with your browser.
And now for the Buy Morons
