What's on your mind?
Okay, we're all here because we loved the show. But let's face it, there were some issues with season five that put a lot of people off. Honestly, though, they aren't at all insurmountable. Everything that was done, can be tidied up in a well written script that deals with the problems with logic and precedent established in the series itself.
So starting with the elephant in the room; the Sarah situation. All ready been dealt with. Believe it. We saw this play out all ready with Morgan being subsumed by the flawed Intersect. He reverted to a previous, albeit more dickish, self. Chuck recognized the 7th grade Morgan from when he had grown his first mustache, "...thought he was cock of the walk; cool, sarcastic, mean. Made our lives a living hell..." Chuck reminded him about Meredith Lester, the queen of the eight grade, and how she had pantsed Morgan, and how they had gotten back at her. When Morgan managed to cut through the fog of the Intersect and pulled up the memory Chuck held out to him, he remembered who he really was almost instantly; "...we shaved off my first mustache and sprinkled in on her sandwich. I remember - that's who I am." This is the advice that was given by Ellie, the nuerologist, who would know, and she recommended this exact treatment, appealing to the memory of a patient, telling them who they'd been before, effectively unlocking their memories. So Chuck did the same thing for Sarah. He gave Sarah all their memories together, and the depth and intensity of the memories, let's say catalyzed by the kiss, restored much of who she really was. She remembers Chuck, she remembers them. Like Morgan's loss of movie trivia, there are going to be a few holes, perhaps peripheral connections like Alex and others not as intimately attached to her will have been lost, but Chuck - she remembers.
Point two. The frozen assets. They were frozen, not destroyed, not confiscated. And they were frozen during an illegal op. The fact that the man who cut them off from their funds was revealed to be a traitor and rogue would be in their favor. Plus they have Beckman on their side. Not to mention the fact that any shark tank full of lawyers would be delighted to work on getting their funds released to them while wearing nothing but barbed wire suits just for the opportunity to earn a .5% commission if successful. Remember, there's in the neighborhood of 835 million dollars at stake. Even at .5% that's enough incentive to make lawyers go into an absolute feeding frenzy, and still leave more than enough for Chuck and Sarah. One clear strategy is to make clear that the funds belong to the firm that saved the world from the Omen virus, the powers that be would be required and requested to payback such a firm with a friendly gesture, Chuck and Sarah would have quite enough to convert Carmichael Industries into the cyber security firm it should probably be.
And that was the third issue. Carmichael was just too small to be a viable spy for hire gig in the long term. Carrying through the in story proposal to shift to cyber security, they're all ready half way there, especially if you bring in the former Nerd Herders as analysts. Let's face it, after the inevitable, and likely repugnant, scandals that will lead to Jeffsters! slinking withdraw from Europe, they'd be ready made analysts that could be closed up in offices and taken out when needed. Carmichael Industires could even be in a cooperative agreement with Verbansky sharing muscle or tech back and forth as needed. Of course, if it were me, would change the name to Carmichael Associates, since it's more accurate, but that's a small point.
These are the big ones. There are probably a few more.
This show sucked! It let me down in a bad way, it started out extremely fun with the super spy, sensitive, romance you would want in a show then the screw it up by the first episode of the third season.
hey there people need your help, my gf and i are huge chuck fans , and her birthday is in a few weeks , i wanted to give her a replica of the bracelet chuck gives to sarah in saison 2 in the christmas holiday on the buy more , i know a guy who make good replicas but don't have an image of the bracelet could you help ?
Does anyone have video of the preview they showed at the NY Comic Con Panel? This was halfway through season three when the panel was only Schwartz, Fedak, and Yvonne. I remember it had clips from Broken Heart, Tic Tac, Dream Job, and The Ring. My exhausted Google search has failed me!
First, let me say I would like to club the individual whose idea it was to end the series the way it did. But, I do think some clues were inserted into the final episodes that seem to indicate Saraha and Chuck will be OK.
First, Sarah knew something was out of place at the Weinerlicious.
Just before Sarah shoots Chuck, she notices Sarah & Chuck carved in the door frame and remembers she was the one who made the carving. Her memories are tucked away, she just can't access them.
Sarah had to be totally overwhelmed with what had happened so her reticience in just saying everything is OK and back to normal is understandable.
The DVD Casey gave her was physical evidence that she fell in love with Chuck. Sarah KNOWS everything about their relationship is true, she just can't remember or feel her emotions about the relationship, or so she claims. Sarah is moved to tears when she sees herself declare her love for Chuck and her anguish in not knowing what to do in the complicated situation. While Sarah may not feel her love for Chuck at that moment, it is evident Sarah feels an emotional sense of loss at what she had with Chuck. Sarah now knows she, at least for a brief time in her life, was not the emotionless spy she believes herself to be. Sarah now knows she is not only capable of loving someone, she loved "her Chuck."
Sarah remembered how to defuse a bomb using a porn site virus that she had seen Chuck use before.
When Chuck went in serach for Sarah, she was already at their special place on the beach. Sarah shows Chuck she is aware the place is important and special to them by asking him if it is important.
Being present at their spot on the beach is an important indicator as Sarah is searching for herself. She went directly to their special place, almost as if she is waiting for Chuck to come and "fix" things for her.
Sarah seems more at ease when Chuck tells her he will demand nothing from her, he only wants to help her.
Despite "knowing" the events, Sarah asks Chuck to tell her their story. It is an emotional telling as she laughs, cries and smiles at the highs and lows of their love story.
When Chuck tells Sarah Morgan's silly idea about a magical kiss and tries to laugh it off, Sarah, in her no-nonsense tone, asks Chuck to kiss her. Without hesitation, Sarah closes her eyes, smiling ever so fainltly and kisses her husband with a tender familiarity, not a lustful passionate kiss.
The kiss is not just a tender kiss, filled with affection from her husband for her, but one Sarah wants. Sarah knows their history, she knows Chuck loves her and she knows she loved her husband.
The only thing Chuck is asking from Sarah is that she trusts him. Her reaction to the telling of their story, her request for the kiss and the fact they continue kissing as the screen fades to black indicates Sarah's desire to be with Chuck. It appears Sarah has decided to "trust" Chuck and the fact she is capable of love.
Sarah has gone from pushing Chuck away to asking him about the relationship and gambling the kiss will restore things.
Sarah may not remember but she seems to want the relationship.
Adding up all the "indicators" and it looks like Chuck and Sarah will be OK.
I still think the ending stinks.
Does anyone think I have made a reasonable case for things working out despite the losy storyline?
My new kitten, I named him Hairball.
how come in previous seasons it was said to be impossible to remove the intersect from chuch's head... then in later seasons, the intersect is removed and installed easily
I know(I think) this episode is in season 1 or 2(my favorite seasons) but I can't find that particular scene anywhere.
So, I remember Chuck walking into yogurt place and I know Sarah and Cassie were eating sth(or he was eating sth) and Chuck tells them someone is here(or sth) and they run out, go into action mode...Please help! :)
ask me any questions you want!!!
"Malena", "Marlena" and "Melena" here; "Marlena" on Wikipedia. Consensus and/or authority/reference to settle this wanted (or is Malena her real name, Marlena and Melena her cover identities? Seems a bit _close_...)
Chuck is an amazing Television Show, the first time i had watched it i was addicted. on season 5 "Chuck Versus The Goobye" i think that it just leaves viewers in the dark, i think that the creaters should make a season 6 so that its viewers arent wondering what happens next, I myself would like a season 6. The point is the show was a great hit, why does it have to end when it has only just begun, im sure the creaters could have some really great ideas about for season 6 if they had too, so why not bring back a great tv show instead of just completley canceling it.
Is there any possibility of there being more Chuck graphic novels or simply novels like those written for burn notice? This would hold us over until the movie comes out and open Chuck up to a newer wider audience.
Okay so in Chuck Versus The Santa Suit shaw tells chuck that when he saw Decker he flashed on him and so got to know all his 'dirty secrets', but then why didn't Chuck flash on Decker the first time?
Is it true that John is a big book collector? Long time ago I saw him on a TV channel talking about his book collection. How would one get in touch with John to ask him about a book from 1830?
