Chuck Vs. The End

So maybe not a lot of you watched Chuck. That's fine. A lot of people didn't. But I did, and I'm going to talk about Chuck.

Chuck is a show that nearly died three years ago, and instead improbably survived the death camp that is NBC for three seasons, and roughly nineteen possible season finales.

In the past five seasons the show has featured great villains:

Musical numbers:

pretty neat action scenes:

and things that somehow combine most of those things!

Anyways, tonight is the TWO HOUR SERIES FINALE. Let's talk about Chuck.

    I loved Chuck for the first few seasons
    But this season, we moved and set the tivo up incorrectly. So by the time we learned we had messed up, it was already too late to catch up. Have to catch this last season in other ways!

    If that's all there is my friends, then let's keep dancing

    Chuck was my feel-good show to offset stuff like Breaking Bad and Dexter. I'm kinda sad that it's ending, but it's definitely time.

    At least I'll still have Parks and Rec.

    I enjoy Chuck and will be sad to see it go.

    I am concerned with how it could end after last week's episode though.

    NBC Admits To Never Actually Making An Episode of 'Chuck'
    LOS ANGELES—The NBC action-comedy Chuck, familiar to millions of viewers from its long-running promo bumpers, does not actually exist, network executives admitted Friday. "We had a very successful, very expensive promotional campaign, but to be honest, we never actually bothered making a pilot," NBC spokesperson Grant Twombly said. "I guess everybody just assumes everybody else is watching it, because advertisers have jumped on board, and DVD sales are somehow doing great." A ratings analyst reached for comment confirmed that "people can't get enough of that Chuck."

    Because tie-in novels for TV and movies usually suck?

    Not all the time. They made Chuck comic books.

    Fuck it then.

    Archer's coming back, so that's all I need. Besides Fringe that is.

    That's a show that is always on the brink of collapse but isn't poop like Chuck in recent seasons.

    Yeah, I am looking at you, Geebs!

    I only have antenna reception for local channels and one episode several weeks back didn't record very well, so I haven't kept up because I don't want to miss an episode in between because there is storyline I'd miss. And friggin' hulu stopped having it available online to watch at all, so I'm SOL until the last season comes out on DVD.

    I watched chuck but really lost interest this season but I'm watching this here finale.

    Um, it probably should have ended a while ago.

  • DJ EebsDJ Eebs Moderator, Administrator admin
    I'm really enjoying the finale so far

  • rhylithrhylith Death Rabbits HoustonRegistered User regular
    Not gonna get to watch this tonight because my friends are out of town. We're gonna get together on Tuesday and watch it at my place.

    Chuck's never been stellar TV, but it's always been a lot of fun and always makes you feel good. Hopefully most of the actors involved end up getting more roles after it is over.

    With the Cinematic Marvel Universe coming together Yvonne Strahovski would make an excellent Carol Danvers.

    I think they'll probably find work pretty easily. Most if them, anyways

    I just want them to make out to bon iver, it hasn't been ever as good as it was then.

    But I also like Sarah Connor and the weinerlicous costume, this finale is OK. The first hour made me fairly sour.

    Yeah I guess I could do without more Morgan.

    As long as Adam Baldwin gets more work. He seems to keep getting doomed to cult classics.

    I wouldn't really call being on a five season show as "doomed".

    I really liked that finale, you guys.

    I know a lot of people kind of fell by the wayside as the show went on, and I know it had some rough stretches (it never really matched the consistency (and budget) of the second season, for one), but I think the whole "fun little show" thing is kind of...I dunno, not really fair. It was fun, and it was light at parts, and it certainly never aspired to the level of something like a Breaking Bad, or whatever.

    But it had a great cast, and was full of great characters that did grow and change over the course of the series, and a bunch of really memorable moments and argh you know what, I loved this show, and even though I'm glad they got to end it the way they wanted, and I'm glad it got five seasons, I'm still really sad that there are no more new Chuck episodes to watch.
