Random information on the term “Portent”:
An omen (also called portent or presage) is a phenomenon that is believed to foretell the future, often signifying the advent of change. People in ancient times believed that omens bring a divine message from their gods.
These omens include natural phenomena, for example an eclipse, abnormal births of animals and humans and behavior of the sacrificial lamb on its way to the slaughter. They had specialists, the diviners, to interpret these omens. They would also use an artificial method, for example, a clay model of a sheep liver, to communicate with their gods in times of crisis. They would expect a binary answer, either yes or no answer, favorable or unfavorable. They did these to predict what would happen in the future and to take action to avoid disaster.
Though the word “omen” is usually devoid of reference to the change’s nature, hence being possibly either “good” or “bad,” the term is more often used in a foreboding sense, as with the word “ominous”. The origin of the word is unknown, although it may be connected with the Latin word audire, meaning “to hear.”
Random information on the term “OMEN”:
As Chuck is a comedy series with strong ties to both geek and tech-culture, and also part of the “spy” genre, some emphasis is placed on technology within the show. Technologies in the show usually drive the plot (most notably the Intersect), but some gadgets are directly for comic effect (tennis ball grenades). Some of the devices in the series are accompanied by a nod to pop-culture, such as the GLG-20 listening device. There are multiple references made to James Bond in particular.
During Chuck’s first season, the Buy More was used as the main base of operations by the team, although by Season 2 it was largely replaced by Castle. Located in a strip mall near the “Large Mart” (a parody of wholesale retail stores like Costco and Sam’s Club), much of the store is a typical “big box” style electronics retailer. However, the government made numerous modifications to some areas of the store to facilitate the team’s operations throughout the course of the series. By the end of the first season Fulcrum began to identify the store as a place of interest, and sent an agent to infiltrate and monitor the store. Fulcrum has on several occasions attempted to determine what the government’s interest in the store is, and by “Chuck Versus the Predator”, they identified it as a CIA substation.
