25 Inimitable Men 14/25
Devon Woodcomb (Chuck)
Awesome — how appropriately titled for Chuck’s Devon Woodcomb. This isn’t the first time I’ll say this and it’s most certainly not the last, but Devon Woodcomb is one of the most underrated characters to ever exist on a TV series … or rather anywhere. Initially when we were introduced to him in the pilot, I didn’t think he was a character that’d make it to the end and that’s exactly what makes him remarkable. He’s written and presented in such a way where the audience will instantly assume he’ll be stereotyped into nothing but a pretty boy jock who’d leave no impression, but as the seasons progress he proves, and in the most effortless of ways if I may add, that he’s in fact so much more. Devon Woodcomb is a number of things — ridiculously smart, empathetic, thoughtful, but most importantly he’s supremely noble.

Team Bartowski (Chuck)
I would happily join Team Bartowski if I could. Seriously why don’t I have the opportunity to be a spy? Why did no one recruit me when I was working at Barnes and Noble? That’s somewhat similar to the Buy More, right!? The point is, Chuck Bartowski is a lucky man. John Casey, Sarah Walker, and Chuck may have started out as the sole members of Team Bartowski, but when Morgan finally joined in along with Devon and Ellie, everything was magic. Chuck became the utmost perfect show. (Okay sort of, it was always perfect.) We are who we are because of those who love us, and Team Bartowski needed one another without even realizing it, but most importantly, they’ve effortlessly had a remarkable impact on one another.
25 Love Stories 13/25
Devon Woodcomb and Ellie Bartowski (Chuck)
Devon “Awesome” Woodcomb and Ellie Bartowski are perhaps one of the greatest and most underrated couples in TV history. There’s never a dull moment between the two and while their story isn’t often the center of the series, Chuck wouldn’t have been the same without them. If you paid close attention you’d notice that the way they love one another is truly ideal. The development of their relationship and all around presence did an incredible job of grounding viewers from a world of outrageous shenanigans that spies go through. Ellie and Awesome are an impeccably solid team — whether they’re comforting one another after a hard day of work or just adoring one another as they did upon first meeting, they’re always a breath of fresh air.
