Chaos - 1x01

Oh lord, this show! The three established agents are insane, delightfully so, and I'm a little surprised at how amused I am at their antics. Of course, part of my "zomgsquee!" comes from the fact that two of the main cast played favorite characters on other shows.

There is, of course, Eric Close, last seen squeezing my little fangirl heart as Vin Tanner on Magnificent Seven (for quite an impressive number of years!) I know he was on Without A Trace, but I could never get into the show other than the casual viewing. And number two would be James Murray, last seen being forced to perform increasingly bizarre and nonsensical scripts as Stephen* in Primeval. A show that I couldn't force myself to stop watching, up until it broke my brain with a giant crocodile not devouring the cast of idiots because they treated it like an Egyptian god.

* - aelfgyfu_mead, I nearly texted/PMed you going "OMG! Stephen is on CBS RIGHT NOW!", but I resisted. Aren't you proud?

I think part of the fun of this show is how adorkably naive the main character is (with his occasional Crouching Tiger, Hidden Badass peeking out), contrasted with the CIA versions of Huey, Dewey, and Louie taking full advantage of that.

"Sometimes we can be right bastards." Yes, yes you can. And it makes me lawl. XD

I will gladly add a season pass of this show to my TiVo, with the hopes that it will make me laugh heartily. (I suspect the warm team fuzzies that I'm currently enjoying on Hawaii Five-0 will come later down the line, but I'll gladly take laughs in the meanwhile). So, did anyone else catch the pilot tonight? Enjoy it? Get more than a teensy crush on Chaos!JamesBond--I mean Billy?
