Unpacking "Chuck": The TV Series Interpreted - G. Walter Bush

if I had started this book this morning, this would have been a "read in one day" book, because it's so short and quite fun to read; but of course I was finishing that Murder Mystery before work, and did not embark on this until this evening. so, with a bit of tiredness coming on, any vague thoughts I had about getting to the end of Unpacking "Chuck" before sleepy-time have flickered out. I'll wrap this up early tomorrow, and then it's on to Suicide Squad.

Unpacking "Chuck": The TV Series Interpreted - G. Walter Bush

this is all making me want to watch the series again --but I dunno; is supposed to be Futurama for me, after Prison Break. Chuck again, soon, though...

Unpacking "Chuck": The TV Series Interpreted - G. Walter Bush

years ago, box sets of Seasons of Chuck were on sale at the DVD store, when there were still DVD stores. anyway, at that price I took a chance and bought Season 1. I figured I would find the show silly, and maybe kind of offensive if the woman spy was amazing, while she endured this male dunce named Chuck. so I watched Episode 1, and I loved the show from then on. and I confess right now to falling hard for Yvonne Strahovski. I used to end up over at my best friend's place, with DVDs to watch, and I persuaded him to watch Episode 1 of Chuck. "Even if you don't like the show--and I didn't think it was going to be my kind of humour--and you don't want to see any more episodes..that's fine. But you should see this woman.". Well--there's my friend, as Yvonne Strahovski's face comes on screen for the first time (and he worships Michelle Pfeiffer, so there is normally no room for any other celebrity crushes), and all I hear is "Wow. Is that the woman who is on every week?! What is her name? Wow.".

 

we watched every episode. we both love "her", but truly, it emerged as one of my favourite shows regardless. admittedly, if YS had left the show midway through, or something horrible like that, it would have seared us both--but I would have watched anyway, because Chuck's growth as a person and as a spy with a conscience, was amazing, the humorous spy adventures are all very creative, and Iove the show.

 

I did not know about this boo, and its follow-up, but my best friend gave me them for my birthday, and has copies himself. shall be fun revisiting Chuck. no pictures, though--damn.

13 Reasons
Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher

Quick review.

 

Everyone should read this book once. As a victim of bullying and rumors myself, I definitely feel for Hannah. The topics this book discuss are very relevant and important. Rape culture. Gossip. Slut shaming. Treating women like meat. Mental illness and suicide. This book is a testament to what we must fight to fix in the system. Our children shouldn't feel this way. They shouldn't think dying is the only way out.

Beyond Reach
Beyond Reach: The Search for the Titanic... Beyond Reach: The Search for the Titanic - Jacob Grimm,William Hoffman

It's hard to imagine a time before we knew where the Titanic rested. But for more that 70 years it slept in the North Atlantic without a soul knowing it's true location. I was drawn in immediately by the prologue of Thomas Andrews, the designer of the Titanic, and his heroic final moments trying to save as many lives as possible while his precious ship foundered. This book, despite being full of science terms I am unfamiliar with, was well written and compelling. It gripped me. I cried, I got goose bumps, I felt for these people- both the Titanic passengers and the Gyre passengers alike. Wow. I am so pleased with this read. They were pioneers in trying to locate the grave of the Queen of the Ocean.

 

 

RIP Thomas Andrews
