Chuck is back with new missions, a new business -- and no Intersect. The stakes are high as Chuck sets out to become a full-fledged spy. But without the CIA as backup, Chuck will have to rely now more than ever on John Casey, Sarah Walker, and a new Intersect -- Morgan Guillermo Grimes. Across this thrilling final season, Chuck will find that his wits, his friends, and his family are the only backup he needs.]]>

Using money from Alexei Volkov, last season's leading villain, Chuck, Sara, Casey, and Morgan go into the private spy business, only to discover the competition can be quite fierce. Carrie-Anne Moss (Matrix) has a recurring role as the cutthroat leader of a rival firm, and as someone with a history, and maybe a future, with Casey. Morgan, who ended up last season with the Intersect in his head, discovers the hard way the challenges of having super spy skills, and in the process damages his relationship with Casey's daughter Alex. Chuck, reduced to basic nice guy computer nerd, goes through his own period of painful adjustment, before having to face his greatest opponent one more time. Sara Walker's long-missing mother will make an appearance at a vital moment, while fans will be treated to additional fun with the BuyMore gang, and to additional Bartkowski family comedy (and drama over Chuck and Sara's future).
Team Bartkowski will face a series of threats from rogue CIA agents, including one who sets up the team for the crime of the century, leaving the team with a choice of jail or life on the run.Read more ›
Season 5 is the last TV season we'll have for Chuck. If you own seasons 1-4, you'll need 5 to complete the set. If you don't (yet) own those first seasons, I must ask why? Chuck gradually lost its ratings over the years, yet there is much to love in season 5, and in all 91 episodes.
There are high points in every TV season: great guest stars like Bo Derek, Mark Hamill, and Danny Pudi were supplemented by arcs with Carrie-Ann Moss and Richard Burgi. There's a house with a white picket fence; trips to Miami, Vail, and Japan; and the Intersect (long filled with secrets) which has more secrets to tell. The canon (the backstory built with each episode) takes some hits in one particular episode, but it's still our Chuck.
The two-hour series finale aired in the US last night. Fans of Chuck's early days at the BuyMore and as a begrudging member of Team Bartowski will see much that they love. Those who wish for spy fights and gun battles will have something to enjoy. Fans campaigned to save Chuck season after season. Whether we saved the show or not, the season 5 finale seemed to me a reward created for the fans. If you buy this DVD, even if you've never seen Chuck in action before, the finale "Chuck v. the Goodbye" will be your reward.
I'm giving this 5 stars for the sake of being a fan and because I haven't had a favorite show in soo many years. But I'll be honest with what I didn't like about this season:
There was a somewhat annoying plot and I feel it didn't work well with all the other seasons (I won't spoil with who it was, so I'll keep it vague). It just didn't make sense that someone received it and barely qualifies as an agent.
In my opinion, most of the 5th season, like others said, just didn't have that connection the other 4 had.
Overall though, winning my heart from the Pilot episode, the 5th Season is a must buy. You have to know how it all ends. Towards that last few episodes- you start to see how hard it was on the actors and actresses to close off this fantastic show. The chemistry with everyone (both on set and off) was one of a kind. It was so unique...even fans felt that connection with everyone in the show. Hell, we kept the show alive for....3 seasons, right? I signed petitions, supported subway like it was my lifeline for food, bought Chuck merchandise, etc. haha.
I honestly hope....hope hope hope....we get to see Zach and Yvonne in some random future project together, or just see them in another awesome show (together or individually) because I admire their personalities both on and off the set.
Hopefully this somewhat helps. Thanks for reading my review.
Also Chuck and Sarah shared a lot of post marriage problems like starting a family and finding a house. It was cool to see these two try to figure out married life while shooting some bad guys. Casey gets a love interest in Carrie Anne Moss which was a nice touch for the gruff Colonel, and wouldn't you know it there was a Matrix reference added for her. The ending while a little controversial was excellent in my opinion. Anyone about to watch the finale should watch the pilot right before it. There are a lot of references to Chuck's first mission. There will also be an extended version of the finale along with audio commentary for the episode (It's about time). Even if you didn't like the finale at least the writers got to end the show on their terms.
I'm rating this in advance of buying it because I think we all know it isn't going to look great on Blu Ray. It never has been the standard for high definition. I doubt things will change now.Read more ›

Considering the 5th season comes out in May, I'd assume it would be September or closer to the holidays no?
