January 27th was a day of tremendous excitement, which we now mark with sadness as the date we said “goodbye” to Chuck. The 2-part finale, comprising ‘Chuck vs. Sarah’ (written by Rafe Judkins and Lauren LeFranc, and directed by Jay Chandrasekhar), and ‘Chuck vs. the Goodbye’ (written by Chris Fedak and directed by Robert Duncan McNeill), was a true love letter to the fans.
Filled with suspense, emotion, twists and turns, incredible acting, and a cornucopia of callbacks, this series finale was one the cast and crew can be proud of. It leaves us filled with hope as the characters we love ride off into the sunset.
This marathon podcast features photos and videos from viewing parties in several cities, as well as a unique privilege… thanks to Chuck composer Tim Jones, you will hear his music cues underneath our discussion of the finale! He will also be interviewed in our next podcast, which should be released in the next week.
Speaking of Tim Jones, we discuss how you can help a Chuck soundtrack become a reality. We also discuss the topic of a Chuck movie at length, including what you can do now to help. The best plan is to put dollars into Warner Brothers’ pockets — visit Chuckazon to pre-order Chuck season 5, and order any other seasons you are missing!
There have been numerous blogs and news sites featuring coverage of the finale. In particular, CNN interviewed Gray for their Geek-Out blogs, and Gray also posted his thoughts about how Chuck changed his life, in his own goodbye to Chuck at chuckpodcast.com. Check them out!
