Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Created by Josh Schwartz ("The O.C.") and Chris Fedak, this high-concept action comedy follows a regular 26-year-old everyman whose life is thrown into disarray after his friend, a CIA agent, sends him an e-mail that results in the world's secrets becoming embedded in his mind. Chuck Bartowski is just an ordinary guy who spends his days solving problems at a computer store with a band of nerdy cohorts and longing to find a woman who can appreciate him. He never asked to become the government's most powerful weapon--but suddenly the fate of the country lies in his unlikely hands!]]>

Chuck was really only 4 seasons long. The first was cut short by the writer's strike and the 5th was only a 13 episode season. It was a show that was always teetering on the brink of cancellation. but managed to survive. The die hard fans may remember that it came out the same year as the Bionic Woman reboot which NBC promoted constantly. This is the show that should have been pushed, and if it was it may have had better ratings at the outset. But even without the massive promotional machine it managed to hang around. While having Yvonne Strahovski in various stages of undress from week-to-week probably helped that, it was the overall quality of the series that made it what it was.
It was another show that had an ensemble cast of relative unknowns, which ended up working well. Everyone from the main characters to the Buy More ancillary characters did a great job in their roles. The series gave all the characters a chance to have a story, and really evolve. There were also a lot of nerdy pop culture references throughout the course of the show. There were references to Star Wars, Die Hard, Groundhog Day, Back to the Future, Dune, James Bond, The Terminator, and on and on.Read more ›
I have only watched season 1 so far but I have been very disappointed by the setup of the blu-ray. It is nearly impossible to get to an actual menu for episode selection. Instead it just wants to play them all in order without a true menu option. This would not be a problem if I was going to watch a marathon but is HIGHLY inconvenient when I only want to watch one episode a night before bed and am therefore forced to skip ahead 2-4 episodes to get to the current one I want to watch.
This should not be called a Collector set, as there is absolutely nothing special about it. You don't get any additional content or special features and there isn't even special packaging. All it is is a thin cardboard type box that holds the five seasons, in their original cases when they are sold separately. The only thing good about this is you can get it cheaper than buying the seasons individually.
Granted I'm not complaining much because it was a deal, even if I already had the first season on dvd; however, it irks me that they could call this a "Collectors Set". This title could be misleading to some who already have the series and are expecting something special because of it's, "Collectors" status. It is simply a bundle of the original cases for the seasons, packaged together, and nothing more.
I really loved the Chuck series.
The story of Charles Irving Bartowski and his girlfriend turned wife Sarah Walker and their friends and family tickled the funny-bone and told a fine story about family, friends and obligation. While the show didn't change lives, it did change how we looked about the way we support our favorite shows.
Chuck was always teetering on the brink of cancellation and the die-hard fans of the show not only wrote NBC to keep the show on the air but they also spent their money supporting the sponsors of the show. This and cost-cutting moves by the producers of the show made it financial feasible to keep Chuck on the air. We bout Chuck merchandise and the DVDs and Blurays. A very creative fan posted the unofficial Chuck Soundtrack along with CD art for the rest of us to assemble.
So, with many of the Chucksters already owning all 5 seasons on DVD/Bluray, WB released the complete Chuck boxset. Here's the problem. There was nothing special for the fan who spends the $150 or so to buy the set, save a nifty box. Not good enough.
Warner Bros. spend millions of dollars on marketing for other projects, so why such a generic presentation? Other posters have articulated ideas on how to properly reward the fans who shell out their hard-earned bucks for the set. All they would have had to do was ask the fans. We're pretty easy to find. They showed up every year at ComiCon. They patrol the fan sites and they're surprisingly articulate.
I strongly recommend you stay away from this product until it becomes as special as the series.

Although, I'm not 100% sure... I tried to do so some research because I wanted the blu-ray set that had the 3D episode included. It seems that there was a special edition set that has a sticker on the front that states the 3D episode was included. The regular boxed set doesn't have the episode in... Read More
