CHUCK Versus G.R.E.T.A. – Help The Producers of CHUCK!

September 27, 2010 by  

During last week’s season premiere of CHUCK, viewers were introduced to Greta – an undercover CIA operative posing as a Buy More employee. Greta was portrayed by the sexy, Olivia Munn. But as Shakespeare once asked, “What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Indeed. I think that Shakespeare guy was on to something.

This week, the sweet rose of Greta is being played by Isaiah Mustafa (or as he’s best known, ‘the Old Spice guy’). But wait, isn’t “Greta” a girl’s name? True, but not when Greta isn’t really a name at all.

During our recent sit down with CHUCK Executive Producer Chris Fedak, it was revealed that “Greta” is not the name of the CIA agent, but rather an acronym. So just what does G.R.E.T.A. stand for? Well according to Fedak and Josh Schwartz, the answer might just come from CHUCK fans.

“We’re letting the fans pitch as to what the G.R.E.T.A. acronym stands for,” says Fedak. “Josh and I are terrible with acronyms.”

So here’s your chance, CHUCK fans! Weigh in on what YOU think G.R.E.T.A. stands for. We’ll post some of the best acronyms over the next few weeks and we’ll let your fellow CHUCK fans decide which G.R.E.T.A. suggestion is the best.

The winner of the best acronym will receive CHUCK S3 on DVD as well as the acknowledgment of being awesome!

Get extra creative! Want to really sell your G.R.E.T.A. idea to fellow CHUCK fans? How about sending in a video explaining your brilliant acronym? Upload your vid to YouTube with the title: “CHUCK vs. G.R.E.T.A. – Give Me My” and share it with us. We’ll post the best vids!

Who else would YOU like to see as future G.R.E.T.A.’s? Fedak already got his wish of having Summer Glau on CHUCK. Here’s what he said when we asked about a guest star wish list…

    General Retail Employee Trainee Agent

    Simple, efficient, even sounds like a typical no nonsense acronym.
    I personally liked SharlzG’s and Painter 117s because I feel if it is a government acronym it would typically be no nonsense if possible for something like this, or at least I’d WANT it to be if I were the government person in charge of coming up with “cute” acronyms.

    I’m not sure if this is the way to submit an idea for the acronym but if so here’s mine.

    this is another possibility that it thought of
    Government Raised Essentially Trained Agent.

    or you guys could come up of a mix of them like

    Government Raised Emergency Tactical Agent

    GRETA = Ground Reserve Espionage and Tactics Agent

    Since it is a CIA/NSA project the first 2 letters would be a code for depatment running project. So I would think GR would be the change from the ZR that became defunt after the learned Castro assassination attempt project ZR/Rifle. So Great would be GR/ E.T.A. would the last three letters would still be an anagram. GR/ Electronically Trained Agents.
