Only one more episode left, sadly. This season, in my opinion, has been quite a return to form for the show. The episodes have been a great mixture of action, romance, sadness, and more comedic than seasons past. I'm gonna miss this show.

Watched the entire series up to this point quite recently. It's okay.
I liked it better when Chuck wasn't so confident and competent... and before he got the girl. Although his gradual progression from loser to super-spy, I have to say, was pretty organically done.

Yeah, my favorite episodes are definitely in Seasons One and Two when he was the awkward loser pining for the unreachable Sarah. Comedically too, I thought it got a biiiit too serious in later seasons, but the storytelling and overarching themes improved with the Ring and Volkoff plots.

The old days, are the best days. Which can apply to many other shows:

I'm gonna miss the heck outta Chuck when it ends this week. After last season's dorkiness I feel like this final season has come back strong, and rightfully so as it'll send off the show on a positive note instead of on a whimpering sour one. I hope they simply tie all the loose ends up this Friday; I'll be pissed if they pull some kinda open-ended "Chuck got the intersect back... again!" garbage. Minor nitpick: I don't really buy Sarah's want to quit the spy life. IMO she's become the damsel in distress more often it seems as of late than normal . Could just be me though. on a related note I'd like to know what you PEELers think about John Casey and Verbanske's relationship. Necessary? Filler? Good? Bad?

SGB: SpongeBob died after the cheesy movie was made. Then Hillenberg left, then it started sucking ass. He wanted to end it there, but nope. Too much of a money-maker!

Yes, he's always been a real treat to see during Chuck's run. He played the part of Volkoff SO well he'd damn near convinced me he could legitimately go out on the town and kill somebody in real life if he wanted to. Dude can act.

Yeah, it's a shame he only got to do two Bonds. He was a good Bond.

I buy it in a way. She'd never wanted any of the whole serious relationship/marriage thing before because she was a spy and spies don't do that unless they want to hurt people, but now she's realised she does want it perhaps and therefore doesn't need the spy life to be happy? That was kind of the gist I got. But she definitely has seemed more wimpy lately.
Also I thought that whole 'get together and crush the intersect glasses' thing would actually be a great way to end it. They should also bring his dad back into it somehow. shifty

I don't know if I quite like it. I was hoping he'd get back with his wife, what with his daughter getting to know him and such. But I also get that in the real world it wouldn't work out like that, but TV isn't the real world!

I loved Dalton's character too. I think even though Season 4 wasn't all that good, he was arguably the best villain the series ever had.

Yeah, it's a shame he only got to do two Bonds. He was a good Bond.
So I've heard, despite everyone's bawwing at how Brosnan didn't get the part, therefore he "sucks" as Bond. Bullshit, he reaks of that type of role. He was born for that type of role.

any1else: I suppose I feel the same as you do, but something about it screams "weak plot turn" more than it does "legitimate evolution of Sarah Walker". You know, 'cause her whole life she was running about more or less, so five years to suddenly learn she wants to stay put in one place? Chuck must be one HELL of a man to convince her of that so quickly. I guess that's sorta how I view it.

Nasty: No question. For all of S4's weaknesses and corny aspects, Timothy Dalton provided ample entertainment value into an otherwise (more or less) forgettable season. He was a villain with truly ruthless intentions, and yet felt realistic, unlike Decker who was just a complete god-mod troller who pissed me off.

He did the darker, more gritty and closer to the novels version of Bond long before the decided to go that way with Daniel Craig.

I wouldn't actually call that "sudden".

So is season 5 worth watching? I've seen the first 4 seasons, even been on the set.
Is better or worse then season 4? For me the show peaked at season 2.

I think it was better than Season 4, maybe even Season 3. It had a very different dynamic than Season's past.

Yes. I don't really like Daniel Craig as much as Brosnan because he did so well. He was a natural fit for the role and IMO he's already been branded as Bond since he took the gig. Bullshit for getting out because he wanted to expand his acting to be more than Bond. In my eyes he more or less fell off the radar then and there.

I feel like in those five years, Sarah was primarily still the same up until she finally got with Chuck last season and married him. It was then that it all started to play in that direction and I guess I felt like it seemed rushed in that sense more so than the whole five years thing I mentioned in my last post. Five years is a long time, sure, but Sarah and Chuck only just recently jumped into the married life/slow down/kids mode. Perhaps I'm over-exaggerating quite a bit here with my words. I should type this stuff out when I'm fully alert and free of distractions. I don't know what I'm saying anymore... Who're you again?

RS: I think it's worth investing time in to, yeah. IMO it's a step above season four (although I think four is the lowest point of the series so...) and it obviously will be the last season produced. Ya might as well try and catch up since this Friday's the real ending forever. Big two-hour send-off. Hope it doesn't troll everyone. As Nasty mentioned, the season has a different dynamic, a different feeling to it. Chuck's learned to cope without the Intersect, SarahxChuck has been expanded upon some more, and it gets ever darker plot-wise. That's not to say it throws out the formula it's been using for it's whole run, it just has less humor incorporated I think, or if it's the same amount, it's light-hearted moments are amply placed in just the right spots.

I think it's good that they didn't just push the reset button all the time to keep anything from progressing. Characters should have meaningful growth and development in both themselves and their relationships with each other.

God. Damn. The writers. Just... damn them. Want to cry because it's the end, and just... ARGH, no spoilers!

Now I know the heartache you guys felt that watched Futurama finish up on FOX (before it gladly returned!)
