Addictive and Entertaining

There are two things that my family is currently addicted to, the Plants vs. Zombies and Chuck.
We may be late but it is only now that we discovered this game. Hubby downloaded this game, Plants vs. Zombies. It is another addictive and entertaining game from PopCap Games, developer of games that shake the net gaming industry such as Bookworm, Bejeweled and Zuma.
Plants vs. Zombies is a tower defense game. The object of the game is to kill all the zombies before they can invade your house and eat your brains. Violent as it may sound but it is not. The cute graphics are well animated and attracts a wide range of audiences, from children to adults. In fact, the three of us, hubby, I and RJ, are playing it.
The zombies are invading your house and your task is to protect your house with your arsenal of plants. You will strategically place the 48 zombie-killing plants in front of your house. Each plant has its own unique ability, advantage, and disadvantage. You need to think which plants can kill the batch of zombies and you need to plant fast to stop the 26 types of zombies with different capabilities and powers. There are different game modes, the adventure, mini-games, puzzle and survival, that make it more fun, challenging and addictive. I just finished all the levels and got the gold trophy. My eyes sored but it’s all worth it.
The other thing that is keeping us busy after dinner is “Chuck”. We can’t get enough of this action-comedy TV series from the United States. The first series was premiered on September 24, 2007 and is now on its 3rd season.
Chuck is nickname of Charles Bartowski (Zachary Levi), a computer-geek next door who turned into a spy. The world’s greatest spy secrets were embedded into his brain when he opened the email he received from his friend Bryce Larkin. Because of this, the US government needs him to track down the terrorists groups, the Fulcrum and the Ring. Chuck meets Sarah Walker (Yvonne Starhovski), a CIA sexy super-spy whose mission , together with NSA agent John Casey (Adam Baldwin), is to keep Chuck and his newly-obtained secrets out of the hands of the enemy at all cost. Chuck and Sarah fall in love with each other but because a spy can’t fall in love with a spy, they are trying to suppress their feelings but then you can see the love in their eyes.
Like other TV series, there are characters that make Chuck alive such as Chuck’s goofy bestfriend Morgan Grimes (Joshua Gomez), his troublesome sister Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) and her “Captain Awesome” doctor boyfriend Devon Woodcomb (Ryan McPartlin), his manager at the Buy More Big Mike (Mark Christopher Lawrence) and the Nerd Herd nerdies Lester (Vik Sahay) and Jeff (Scott Krinsky).
This is a comedy, action and romance, all in one. In 2009, the series won the Ewwy Award for Best Comedy Series and Zachary Levi for Best Actor in a Comedy Series.
