Chuck versus Tympanogram

I’m not a critic of the visual medium in the slightest sense.  I like to be entertained and challenged, made to laugh and think, and while I’ll watch a movie based on reviews, I don’t always get what the fuss is about.  For example, I think Ryan Gosling and Christian Bale are two of the better actors of our generation.  With that said, neither Half Nelson nor The Machinist did anything for me.  I was pretty disappointed in both, but maybe I missed something.  (I did, on the other hand, like The United States of Leland, but it’s hard for me to remember if it was because of the movie or because Jeremy Enigk did the music for the film.)

Chuck is one of my television guily pleasures.  It’s not an Arrested Development situation because it’s not genius by any stretch; it’s a fairly straightforward nerdy guy/hot chick/impossible scenario type of thing.  But it entertains me for an hour on Mondays (or whenever I get around to watching it on my DVR) and it doesn’t require me to delve into complicated plot twists and turns after work.  I like that.

More importantly (and apropos of this blog), the music supervisor for the show is excellent.  Here are two of the tracks used in last night’s show, and check the show’s website for a more complete look at what they get down on.

Blitzen Trapper – God & Suicide (mp3) from Furr

Bloc Party – Signs (mp3) from Intimacy
