If I could be anyone I'd be ....

To celebrate the launch of Talli Roland's new book 'Watching Willow Watts', I'm taking part in her websplash.

So without further ado...

If I could be anyone I'd be...

Why you ask? Because he's cool. We all love the idea that if we are stuck in some mundane job, something will sweep into our lives and make it just that much more exciting. In the case of Chuck, he is inadvertently sent an email which imprints government secrets into his brain, and the CIA have to take care of him in order to gain access to the information, and protect him from the enemies who also want the secrets. He becomes a spy for the CIA, despite still having to work as a tech guy in the 'Nerd Herd' section of 'Buymore.'
I think Chuck is one of those underrated shows. It is so funny and edge-of-your-seat exciting, with fantastic characters as well. 



About Watching Willow Watts
For Willow Watts, life has settled into a predictably dull routine: days behind the counter at her father's antique shop and nights watching TV, as the pension-aged residents of Britain's Ugliest Village bed down for yet another early night. But everything changes when a YouTube video of Willow's epically embarrassing Marilyn Monroe impersonation gets millions of hits after a viewer spots Marilyn's ghostly image in a frame.

Instantly, Willow's town is overrun with fans flocking to see the 'new Marilyn'. Egged on by the villagers -- whose shops and businesses are cashing in -- Willow embraces her new identity, dying her hair platinum and ramming herself full of cakes to achieve Marilyn's legendary curves.

But when a former flame returns seeking the old Willow, Willow must decide: can she risk her stardom and her village's newfound fortune on love, or is being Marilyn her ticket to happiness?

Thanks everyone.

You should give Chuck a chance it is so funny. Even though it's unlikely this stuff will happen, you would enjoy the premise of the show.
I love the minor characters that help out as well. For example, Chuck is dealing with all these life and death situations, while in his day job at the buymore ... the most important situation to the people he works for is selling the latest electronic goods or getting a bad review from head office. The contrast is great.
