Of all the spy dramas that grace our televisions, ‘Chuck’ was something different. It was funny, entertaining; and at the same time, it managed to be intelligent and interesting. When Chuck Bartowski received an email from his long-lost friend/nemesis, a series of interesting events led him to become a superspy. The audience enjoyed and related to the carefree Chuck. It also seemed gratifying that a normal, ‘working in an electronics shop’ guy could become a spy, get the girl and save the world. There was something in ‘Chuck’ that mirrored the feelings of a normal person. Unfortunately, the show failed to garner enough audiences. A dedicated fan-petition resulted in its five-season run, but ‘Chuck’ fans will agree that we could have had more of Chuck and Co’s adventures, or rather, misadventures.
The show is long gone, now. It doesn’t look it’s coming back. If you feel like gobbling up another show with some spies and some quirky humor, the following should be on your list. Here’s the list of TV Shows similar to Chuck that are our recommendations. You can stream some of these shows like Chuck on Netflix or Amazon Prime or Hulu.
12. My Own Worst Enemy (2008)
Christian Slater played the role of a secret agent Edward Albright and his alias, Henry Spivey. A chip was planted inside Albright, by his handler, to keep the spy and the alias unfamiliar to each other. Whenever the spy was needed the handler would just have to flip the switch. However, some events lead to breaking of the wall between the spy and his alias, and the world comes tumbling down for both of them. Christian Slater flawlessly portrayed the role of a normal, suburban man who instantly changes into a man who can speak thirteen languages and is trained to kill by his teeth. Unfortunately, this show was canceled before it could make ground for any audience. The first season ended in a cliff-hanger and there wasn’t a closure to all the mysteries created by it. If you can deal with such stuff, you can watch this show.
