While I have not finished watching yet - I am six episodes into the fifth season - my opinion of the show is solidly formed: pure perfection. I don't get emotionally invested when it comes to television. Movies, tv shows, it doesn't matter; I watch them, maybe think a little about what I just watched - if the material in question is really good - and that's it. End of story. I move on to something else.
Chuck is different. It may be billed as comedy, romance et cetera, but don't let that fool you. This is not a show to watch if your goal is to de-stress, unwind, lift your spirits, or just kick back and let your thoughts wonder. This show will at some points turn you into an emotional wreck, really put a damper on your mood, and have you dread the next scene. At other times, you will feel euphoric and brimming with joy. Chuck is masterful at what it wants to do: provoke an emotional response from the viewer. You will cherish every second spent in the wonderful world of Chuck. I am just glad I chose to start watching after all five seasons had already aired. Suspense would be crushing with all the assorted cliffhangers and twists. Be mindful, these are great cliffhangers in a great story. Music too is divine - one of my most played playlists.
None of the above would be possible without the magnificent cast. Whoever was in charge of casting should have their name etched in gold. Yvonne Strahovski and Zachary Levi are a match made in Heaven. Chemistry between them is amazing, and that is the reason this show is so good. Quips, fights, cold feet, awkward and embarrasing situations, skewed communication, and genuine showing of love and emotions between characters. It's all there, and it's all believable thanks to the great acting skills of these two. To be honest, I'd be perfectly happy watching a show with just the two of them on screen. I really hope Yvonne Strahovski lands another great role on another successful show very soon. She deserves it, and I hope that the fact she isn't American actress doesn't hinder her career in any way.
Something my girlfriend said while we were watching the show really stuck with me. She said that this was not a comedy, it is in fact a road map of relationships. Every couple will tell you that practically every situation on this show arose in their relationship at some point. Ok, not the spy stuff, unless you indeed work for the intelligence agency. And that is what makes it so great. That and seeing the unconventional ways Sarah and Chuck deal with those bumps on their road to happiness, while bullets, or, more likely; tranq darts are flying above their heads.
As I said already, I haven't finished watching yet (in confidence, I'm stalling because I don't want it to end), but I sense that they will not get their picket fence house with the red door, and it will all probably end on the ominous note. Even though I'll end up sad if my predictions turn true, this show is probably the best I've ever watched (even more engaging than the Game of Thrones). I am thankful for a great journey, no matter how it ends, and I will return to this show every once in a while.
Slight edit after finishing watching the show. The ending is perfect. True, it is sad. But it is also a happy one. Things have gone full circle. Memories were lost forever... or are they? Either way, after they get their toes out of the sand, Sarah and Chuck will create new ones, and find their love again. Perfect ending for a perfect show.
I recommend you watch it and savor every moment. Try to take it slow, if you can. It will last you longer. :)
I just watched last episode from the series , and since then i have this feeling of sadness,wich doesn`t go away.The way it ended it`s just something that i would of never imagined,i was just hoping it will all be good.I understand that the producers intetions were to leave it as an open ending , but instead of that it just shattered me appart.
So like the other here i am asking you to please make another movie,or season.
Everybody of as - fans of Chuck love this series. There were some weaker moments like in every show but many more moments were amazing. The whole show is amazing(Yes I said is because for me it's still not over!) from season 1 to the last season 5.In every season we have something new, for example: First season - new series.. we could get to know Chuck and every other character.. we could see how the intersect works and also we could see and feel this chemistry between Sarah and Chuck(of course it was present in all seasons).
In the next every season there was something new.. like Chuck with new intersect and other things which everybody knows because everyone of as watched the show.
One thing which didn't change was love between Chuck and Sarah. It was from the beginning to the end. Of course, the situation between Chuck and Sarah was changing. They started to be together.. they got married and all other stuff, but they love each other. We remember how many difficulties they and their love had to fight through the whole show to end-up together.
I remember these 5 years, how much they mean to me.. and if I think about that, that Sarah doesn't remember anything I mean she doesn't feel this love which they were building for last 5 years.. these years mean much less.. . I know the producers think that we can figure the ending out for ourselves but It's not the same.. I would have to see that to believe that Sarah still love Chuck, that she still wants to buy the dream house which she always wanted and move in with Chuck together.. I'd like to see how they talk about children again and every normal things which you talk about when you married.. plans for the future etc.
This could be fix if we have one more season or movie. I know that the season it's a small possibility that it can come into existence of course it have to move to another network like CW or something like that , but The movie.. it can happen, at least I hope that. If it won't happen I'll still love "Chuck" and I'll still be watching "Chuck" because it's the best series which I've ever watched and when I get to the ending again I will think.. no.. I will know that after that kiss she remember this strong love to Chuck and that she can't live without him.
At least a movie in which Sarah gets her memories back..........they deserve it, we want it ..........othewise the other seasons have no meaning..PLEASE its a request....we cannot process the final episode........it is very sad
God, it's so sad! When the realization of the END sinks in, it's almost unbearable. I almost cried, you know. It was like a good-buy with a good old friend.
Brilliant show, beautiful characters (literally, in case of Sarah, yes!).
Some episodes are better, some (Volkoff-related) are not so good, but all-in-all, probably, the best show I've seen (and I've seen a lot!).
In tribute to the last season I've re-watched all seasons in a short time, and it was very warm and happy experience...
Mainly, because I envy Chuck. I have no such a perfect family, no besd/chldhood friend and no "Sarah" in my life... So, watching this and sharing characters feelings created a few happy moments in my life.
So, goodbye, and many thanks for the show! Hope there'll be something near as good someday.
One of the best shows I have watched in a while. It is very sad to see this show ending but as the saying goes; everything must come to an end. Chuck VS GoodBye was beautifully scripted but I also think that Chuck deserved to be entirely happy and have the woman in his life to know and remember all they went thru together.
KUDOS to the writers, producers, directors and all the actors in the show.
So sad to see my only true favorite tv show end. Chuck was the only tv show i actually watched, from Pilot right to Versus the Goodbye. I believe the ending was perfectly scripted but i felt it was unfair for the dedicated viewers seeing our Chuck get so hurt throughout the process when he tried so hard to get Sarah from day 1, especially the troubles he went through in seasons 1-3. From fighting over her with Bryce and Daniel too trying his best to get her to commit to their relationship. I just feel Chuck and us (the fans) were robbed of seeing him entirely happy. Even though it shows them both easily sparking up their relationship again with Chuck telling reminiscing stories about how they met & bonded i still feel a little bit unsatisfied. All of it happened so quick, i don't think i will be ever committed to another tv show again. Chuck is number 1 to me.
Sad, sad day has come. One of my favourite shows has ended. Now I'm crying while loughing - kinda sad ending with a twist: never give up, if you missed something, work hard and you may get it back.
Although everything fell apart there is room for speculation what may happen next - Chuck and Sarah may work out new reletionship, Chuck has the Intersect back (so spy work, here we come :) ) so ending prepared for us by authors can induce our imagination - use it to make your own end of this terrific story.
I was looking forward to the stoyline of Chack and Sarah getting a house with a white fence with a dog. Then having Sarah having a baby. I think that leaving the show at a hanger like it did was NOT a good move because now Sarah has little to no memories of Chuck and her life, Chuck has the "power" again, Morgan and Alex moving together and Ellie and Devon moving to a new job.
I mean REALLY end the storyline that you started!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wasnt NOT pleased at all! I wish that the show was able to keep going. It was our fave. Sad time :(
I loved the season finale because it brought back memories of why I started loving the show in the first place. all the little glimpses of the past and the comedic parts with Morgan really showed that the writers didn't forget how to write a great script! like many others I fell in love with Sarah the first time she walked into the buy more ( Yvonne is sooo stunning, gotta love her).
Because I started watching chuck when it was near the end of the third season, I just went though the available episodes within a couple days. the show kept me up till 5-6 am because the plot and amazingness of this show were perfect. like many others I was constantly on edge waiting for Chuck and Sarah to get together...and until season 3 episode 12, which was probably the best episode in my opinion, the writers kept tempting our minds to think that its finally gonna happen. anyways getting back to the subject of the finale, at the end of the first half where Sarah says bye to Chuck I finally had that feeling I had all the way through to s03e12. The feeling that you must find out what happens next and see how they get back together!
Throughout the last hour of my favourite show, they just kept stalling that moment of reuniting the two of them and I was getting anxious because there was like 5 min left and its still not happening :( even though Chuck and Sarah are kissing in the final scene...and even though there were signs that Sarah was remembering things from the past...it still didn't cut it, and I was deeply disappointed. yes we can probably guess that in time Sarah will remember her past with Chuck, and that they will live happily ever after...but since we didn't get to see it ourselves, I feel as though @tvnut77 said it best stating we've been left unsatisfied.
I will definitely miss this show very much, and am more than likely to watch the five seasons over again some time in the future...but I will always miss the missions and comedy that the cast of Chuck enlightened us with for the five seasons of this great show.
Chuck has always been about fun. It never took itself too seriously and that's one of the reasons it has always been a great show despite the ratings. After watching the show religiously for five seasons I couldn't wait for the series finale and knew it wouldn't let me know. And it didn't...
Until the end. Sarah losing her memory was a decent storyline to end the show (not my favorite but not the worst idea). BUT to end the series and she still does not remember Chuck, that's just wrong. You can argue that artistically it made sense and it didn't follow the generic tv show path, but since when did Chuck have a problem being generic? This was the worst decision the writers ever made on this show (yes, worse than Morgan getting the intersect). I'll always love the show but that was terrible and will forever leave me unsatisfied.
I have watched this show from Episode 1 and loved it from the beginning. I just watched the finale tonight and was so sad that Sara didn't get her memories back. Poor Chuck! The geeky guy gets the girl and it should have worked out. Why couldn't they have worked a way to where Chuck's dad was still alive and sends something to Sara to bring her memories back? And once she gets her memories back, she goes back to find Chuck?!?! Anyone know how to start a campaign to get this show back? I would love to sign up for that!!!
I'm lucky that I decided to look at this show, especially I thought before I watched was going to be some sitcom or something. Boy was I way wrong, this show has laughter, action, romance and development. You will never stop watching this show a found myself constantly looking at reruns back to back like I seen it for the first time. Chucks development starts off kind of slow but entertaining at the same time. So, patience is the key here. But really great show and character development.
I have watched Chuck since the beginning, and it really has been the little show that could. Many times now the show has been on the bubble and thanks to it's loyal following, luck and NOT being on FOX it got the chance Firefly never did. However, to all good things there must be an end. I would rather Chuck end on a high note than see it keep going and stagnate just because it might make a bit more money (Im looking at you LOST).
Chuck is truly unique in the fact that it combines comedic elements with fantastic action sequences seamlessly. It is a show which pretty much has it all: gripping story lines, brilliant acting, blend of lighter and serious moments and i have to mention the nice soundtrack throughout the show. The actors fit their roles perfectly and in particular i love the chemistry between chuck and sarah. I am so glad that this show got its fifth season allowing writers to nicely wrap up the story and i just hope that the show keeps on delivering entertaining episodes in the coming weeks.
honestly the story is going down the drain ... they should try to change the setting instead of changing or developing the characters too much... morgan should always be morgan... he shouldnt be the intersect cause he aint no chuck bartowski if you know what i mean... build the character in a way that some should not replace the lead character and i wouldn't mind if Eleanor and captain awesome become spies too...
I hate that chuck lost the intersect! If it was me and i lost it i would feel like theres a part of me missing. You can tell he's upset that morgan has it now. I really do hope that Chuck gets it back cause if he dont then it ruins the show pretty much. I hate that morgan has! I just hope that chuck gets the intersect back!
This is simply just a great show, with great actors and a great script! This is my favorite show of the moment. And i hate it that season five is the last one. I hope that NBC decides there should be a movie. I am also curious how the show will end.
I have loved the show since i saw the episode. A great click between the cast and of course THE beautiful Yvonne Strahovski. Man i love this show! Atleast we got an fifth season and the episodes are getting beter every week. I also hope that Chuck gets the intersect back, nut i don't think that will happen.
