Fans have swooned over the final music cue at the beach… when you hear the touching story behind Tim writing it, you’ll connect even more with the song. Did you know that Joshua Gomez likes to play a modular synthesizer? How many guitars are on Tim Jones’s wall? The hardware and software Tim uses to record the music?

We also have several musical interludes, including the full “Question and Answer” cue, and a sample of Tim Jones’s solo work.

103 – Goodbye, Chuck!

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!

Then, Chuck composer Tim Jones takes us into the studio, and demonstrates many before and after versions of Jeffster songs, explaining his process, and gives many funny and interesting anecdotes.

Of course, there’s also a ton of Jeffster music, including some never heard before versions and mixes.

Both part 1 and part 2 are available today!
