Jeffster! is one of my favorite running gags in any show, plus it doesn’t hurt that I happen to have an unhealthy love for Chuck. The combo of Lester Patel (Vik Sahay) and Jeff Barnes (Scott Krinsky) is something quite special and out there – two creepy nerds working the “Geek Squad” at a Best Buy-esque store start a two-man Rock-ballad band. Yeah…
It’s a guilty pleasure for sure, but I swear there’s a following! Jeffster! goes with the flow of Chuck adding another flavor to an already palatable show. Embrace the weird and enjoy the list, there are a some great hits here!
Without further adieu…
