The Heart of the Matter



I feel like this video encapsulates the reason we're seeing so many "macho-Chuck" stories lately, which isn't something I'm going to actually talk about here, so I don't know why I just typed that except it's kind of true. Technically, the video is a well-edited project (save for a couple of WTFrea?! moments that I won't get into here because I'm not mean), well-timed to the music picked, but damn if it doesn't show the one thing that brings me back to this show again and again: the heart.  The show is called Chuck, not The Intersect.  This video flirts with giving new viewers a background about the show, but fails because it doesn't really give us a sense of the core cast (no Ellie, no Morgan, very little Buy More, doesn't explain Shaw at ALL (granted, that one's a puzzler to begin with, as Shaw is just hard to explain without multiple facepalms and a bottle of Jack)), and it has none of those fun emotions and hang-ups and day-to-day minutiae that make Chuck stand apart from any other show about a guy who becomes a cyborg/enhanced.  If I'd watched that with no prior knowledge, I would have just been like, "Um, okay?"

I mean, if I were going to send a video out to friends of mine that don't watch Chuck, I would definitely not be sending that one.  This one that Aardie linked on his blog a couple of weeks back?  Oh yeah.


It's a much closer rendition of the series' character and ethos and pathos and all of those fun speech class words I haven't gotten to use in a few years.  (okay, maaaaybe I would like it quite a lot more if Chuck used punctuation, but it's a cute video nonetheless)  If I sent a friend Darth Razorback's video without following it up with, like, an entire playlist of Crystal's videos, I would feel guilty of deceiving them with what Chuck is really about.  I mean, the video is all about "yay!  cool technology!" when the show gives us things like shooting a rocket launcher between somebody's legs with a straight face (not that that moment wasn't funny, but the point stands).

Oh, and SERIOUSLY, SARAH JUST WON A TUBEY!!!  Or more!!!!

Anyway, sorry, I got really, really excited there.

And just to celebrate how awesome Sarah is, I'll post this video here, too:


And if you check my twitter today, I'll be posting random quotes from Bank Job and Fates. While the mxpw's away (sleeping), the Frea will play (and get in trouble for it later).

  3. When is the Bank Job going to be posted?

  4. @Richard-I'm just spit-balling here, but judging by the status bars on the left, I think the Bank Job's going to be posted on September 1. :)

    Anyway.

    Letters to Ellie was an excellent video, one that I showed to a couple of friends. If I ever want to get a guy to watch Chuck, though, I usually show them Crystal's "Sexy Bitch" video.

  5. Funny, I scratched my head after watching that "Intersect Inception" video earlier. I liked it from a "technical" POV, the video is well done, but the story is weird. Going from the Pilot to the S2 Finale to the S3 Finale... I know the focus was on the Intersect but... Like you said it isn't Chuck.

    Anyway, the person that made that "E-mail to Ellie" video, made 2 others. One is called "The B Team" and is pretty funny.

  6. Frea! Can I just say this? I love that you posted dates on the progress bar. It's really like waiting for your favorite tv show's next episode. You have something to look forward to, and you know when it is coming. Simply put, we Fates fans are completely spoiled little brats. Or at least I consider myself one. Completely spoiled. You post little snippets, you tell us when you're going to post the next installment, and you talk to us. A lot. And I really appreciate it. Uhmm... That's all. Good day to you! It's waaaaay past midnight here on my side of the world. Thanks again!

    PS: Sorry that I have totally gone off tangent here. I'll comment on the videos posted above when I'm fully awake.

  12. Thanks for the tweets Frea - it's good to have you in the twitterverse.

    So this morning I uttered Bored Now (do I hear Carina's voice?) and went back to look at some of your other writing. Have to admit I hadn't read "To Sleep, Perchance to Scream" but glad I did now. Your Fates universe really is tightly tied together, isn't it? You did give us a little more insight into the complex character the Fates Sarah really is and we learned a little more about her trip to DC. The line "But most of all, she wanted the government to butt out and quit making Chuck's life hell." really struck me, but I wasn't sure why.

    So then I went back and re-read Bunny - written after To Sleep I now see - and wonder about the line that Sarah: "coming in to hit him (but never with this much anger or fear or rage) and even though he can see she's upset, she's still going. So when I'm bored I extrapolate (fancy word for daydream I suppose) and a question popped into my mind.

    Does Sarah know why Chuck was in the bunker in Siberia for five (yes 5) years?

    She knows, doesn't she? It's going to come out in Act IV isn't it? It's going to make Chuck wonder what he really knows about Sarah Walker even more than he did, isn't it?

    Or - I could be totally wrong. But hey, Not Bored Now!

    Thanks for listening ;-)

  16. The Intersect Inception video reminds me of those parody vids where someone takes a movie in one genre and recuts it to a completely different genre. Like taking Bourne Identity and turning it into a romantic comedy. If Chuck had been the show this promo is leading us to believe it is, I doubt we'd be anticipating a next season right now. The elements it is casting a spotlight onto have been largely underexploited.

    I've always believed that the real emotional gravity in the show could be summed up in the scene at the end of the pilot, with Sarah explaining the Hobson's choice he would have to take if he wanted to stay out of the bunker. And thus the drama was in Chuck's ability to not only reverse his slide in the "real" world but grow into the person who could deal with the "spy" world on his own terms.

    All of the trappings, including the government, villains, family, the BuyMore and even the Intersect, they've all been used pretty much exclusively to drive Chuck's journey and have only been developed well enough (arguably) to do that job. Focusing on one of these weak elements as if it's the show's center is either a manipulative attempt to cultivate interest in fans of that element or if done genuinely, just exposes the vid creator's fetish for said element.

    No, actually, I'm in a fairly good mood today, why do you ask? ;)

    Or I'm evil myself, and think that if you manage to write your new favorite line in Chapter 3, I, as a reader and fan, will get two favorite lines! But no, your readers wouldn't be evil, right?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I hope Sarah doesn't know why Chuck was in there. Otherwise it means she's been lying to him, kinda. She probably has done some research though. But she wouldn't have find out. It's too big for her to access that information. On the other hand, she did plan his escape... But that could have been just because she knew it was big (because it was a well preserved mystery) and he wasn't getting out. In short, I have no idea! :) I hope they find out together later, though.

    I re-read "To Sleep" and I was thinking Part IV would more be about: "There's no way I can trust you, Sarah. You know that."

    Thinking about it, that could also be related to the bunker and what she knows about it... I should stop now!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Well, Sarah has a lot of secrets. That's just part of being a spy. She's kept her identity secret for the most part, Chuck doesn't even know her real middle name, which is something he definitely had down by this point in canon.
    Also keep in mind that Sarah joined the CIA before she was even fully matured mentally, so she may be projecting her own self-image issues onto the Chuck of her dreams. She did it once when she was in the bunker and had the almost-sex dream, it's probably a theme that has come up time and again, depending on the foul, loathsome things she's had to do in the name of the greater good. As she told Chuck in Chapter 14:

    "There's a lot of hurry up and wait, a lot of not knowing, a lot of guess-work that never pays off. You'll hurt people, and you'll tell yourself it's okay because it's for the good of the country, but at the end of the day, the country won't know the first thing about anything and there will still be a hurt person out there. You need to have a thick skin, and you need to learn to be able to cope."

    And we know, from her advice to Chuck in 35 and the fact that she was staring at the hole from the bullet that missed his head by inches, just how good Sarah is at listening to her own advice.

    So is she keeping a secret from Chuck? Oh, she's Sarah Walker. It's like they put it in "Mistborn," a fantastic novel by Brandon Sanderson: there's always another secret. That phrase was practically crafted with this character in mind. Is it as big as you think? It's Sarah Walker. We may never know.

    But it's also Frea, which means it could be anything.

    Personally, I think it's this: she's not a natural blonde. Ohhhhh, I said it!

    Aardie - Yeah, EXACTLY! Which is weird because I usually love cross-genre recuts just for the cleverness, but this one bugs me.

  23. Ayefah25.8.10

    I've suspected since the "Alma Mater" storyline that Sarah might at least have an inkling about why Chuck was bunkered. But as Crumby said, if Sarah has kept that information to herself for all this time while letting Chuck think that he was put in there for being incompetent, that's a big effin' deal. She would have to have really, really excellent reasons for not telling, or at least a high level of uncertainty about whether her suspicions were true.

    I can't believe I'm speculating about Sarah lying to Chuck about something this big. Frea, you make me such a paranoiac! But we still don't know what Graham told Sarah that first Prometheus day, do we? Just one of my many many many many many *gasp* MANY questions.

  24. Because of my theory that Chuck is Face, Ellie is Mr. T, Orion is Murdock, and Mama B is clearly Hannibal?

    Nice try, mxpw. Nice try indeed.

  25. (Is there some Hayloft Gang out there? +26?)

    It's funny that you said: "She's kept her identity secret for the most part, Chuck doesn't even know her real middle name, which is something he definitely had down by this point in canon." Because I find Fates Sarah way more sharing than Canon Sarah. I feel like she talks more. And she just let Chuck go meet her father!

    About the trust thing, I was quoting that as her subconscious that was talking to her. Or something like that, anyway. If Chuck doesn't know why Sarah like him, Sarah doesn't know why he would trust her. In "T,L&CIA" she didn't get how Ellie could trust her just like that.

    I was just thinking if "To Sleep" is her nightmare, well her fear wasn't that Chuck wouldn't overcome is condition, or that he would stay the Intersect, or put in a Bunker after he had it removed (which lead me to think she doesn't know) but it was that he'd marry Jill and wouldn't consider to be with her because he can't trust her.

    So "obviously" she has secrets, and some of them may lead Chuck to stop trusting her or at least not be able to trust her as a girlfriend.

    But does she know everything about the bunker? Maybe she thinks she does! lol That would be even more complicated! She didn't know it was 5 years, and not 3, or did she? lol

    Reading Fates is a lot like the spy stuff: "There's a lot of hurry up and wait, a lot of not knowing, a lot of guess-work that never pays off." But it's fun!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Truth is we don't want to know, yet! Will see in time! But it has to fun for you and mxpw to see what we see, what we miss, what we interpret wrongly and what we interpret right. if we do interpret anything right, of course! :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ayefah - Sarah has never let knowingly Chuck think he's incompetent. In fact, every time Chuck has tried to make the claim, Sarah scolds him. It distresses her that he thinks that way at all. Especially because she thinks he's neat. :) Say what you will about her whenever, she's 100% in Chuck's corner and probably will always be (now if Chuck would just join her in that corner, there would probably be...yeah, that sentence could get Rated R very quickly if I keep going).

    And if she is keeping that nature of a secret from Chuck, holy hell, that's huge, almost to the brink of making her completely unlikeable. And the last thing you want to be doing is writing a romance where one character becomes completely unlikeable. It's bad form.

    Crumby - I see Fates and canon Sarah on about the same level, only Fates Sarah lives in direr circumstances where she needs this guy to trust her and understands that there needs to be balance. If Chuck is going to have faith in her, he needs to know why he can do so. So she's a little braggier about what she can do, she lets him see hints of her humanity, that she went to Harvard, meeting her father (though that may have been Jack's influence). I make her sound cold and calculating here, but she's really not, I promise. The paradox here is that Chuck already completely trusts her, as she proved herself time and again to him on the journey across Russia and Europe. Canon Chuck, on the other hand, probably would have done a lot better with the reassurances that Fates Sarah has been laying down.

    Of course, with her nightmare in "To Sleep," the brain gives us some strange dreams sometimes, and Sarah's subconscious always seems to tell her more than her conscious does. For example, her first dream we visited in W&T, yes, turned into a sex dream (almost), but buried in there were elements that Sarah was upset about the loss of Cabo and everything it meant, and that she wanted comforting of some type, and her brain cast Chuck, the guy she had just met, into this role. Again, her subconscious realizing something the rest of her wasn't letting her see? :) Chuck has proven quite often that he understands Sarah and that he's willing to be there for her, or as he constantly puts it, to wait her out. The scale's not balanced between Chuck being there for Sarah and Sarah being there for Chuck, but this isn't a competition.

    Also: hee. A lot of hurry up and wait to Fates indeed. Though I will argue about things never paying off--didn't I pay off the Team Bartowski gag from Chapter 8? Sure, it took me until Chapter 34, but I paid it off!

  29. Re: the poll
    Hayloft: "For the last time, I was using you for body heat. I was not snuggling."
    "Cuddling. Cuddling was the word I used."

    Bungalow: She'd also managed to climb into bed and true, she wasn't cuddled up against him like in the hayloft...

    From Chuck's POV, the Hayloft seems better to readers that want a glimpse of Chuck and Sarah together. I'm surprised Sarah's comments in Fates 36 did not sway the vote. I changed mine after that chapter.

    Chuck Internet fans have been able to influence things like Tubeys, Teen Choice awards, and E!Online polls. As TPTB have said "we are also a little frightened of their ability to control the Internet." So this poll might be hacked.

    If we can get DA Sarah to force mxpw to finish DA, then we can get both and it won't matter :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Frea things does pay off! 36 was kind of a pay off chapter in fact (for me at least). No I was thinking about the guess work cause we're often wrong!

    Thanks so much for answering, again!

    And MyNameIsJeffNImLost I'm contemplating making a comment called "Why the Bungalow should win this thing". lol :)

    I was thinking the same thing about getting both. Especially when it seems that Frea would like to write it, you think: she's gonna write it either way. But hey, she's only human and she can't right when she sleeps, or can you Frea? ;) Bungalow supporters have to help or out here!

  31. Oh and Peter O, my brain worked during the night about what you said.

    In the Bank Job glimpse we got, Sarah was "punished" or something by the CIA. Maybe Bryce jealousy just created tension that lead to some kind of screw up. Or maybe Sarah investigated a little and the government tried to make her stop. Whatever it is, something happened and Sarah isn't their golden girl anymore. It has to put things in perspective for her about the government. And we're far away from that meeting with Graham.

  32. What makes you think Sarah was the one who screwed something up?

    What makes you think anything was screwed up at all?

  33. I have a hard time thinking about Sarah screwing up anything to be honest. :) I'm just trying to find a reason for her being lend to the DEA. But now that you pointed it out, she didn't seem to now why she's being punished. Roh I'm gonna have to go back and read it again after that.

    Anyway, the fact that she doesn't really now why she's, I don't remember the term, "reoriented" or something like that, supports my "they tried to put her away" theory. Hihi! Or not.

  34. Frea: "And if she is keeping that nature of a secret from Chuck, holy hell, that's huge, almost to the brink of making her completely unlikeable. And the last thing you want to be doing is writing a romance where one character becomes completely unlikeable. It's bad form."

    So, it is a romance! See mxpw! See!

    "..she wanted comforting of some type, and her brain cast Chuck, the guy she had just met, into this role."

    Another reason why you give us time between chapters - so we can re-read and catch what we missed.

    Crumby: "Oh and Peter O, my brain worked during the night about what you said."

    Welcome top my nightmare - they never really stop for me. When it gets too bad I play this song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Da69-pu_pqc
    "I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round, I really love to watch them roll"

    mxpw "What makes you think Sarah was the one who screwed something up? What makes you think anything was screwed up at all?"

    I don't think anyone screwed up. Me thinks it's because someone wasn't - just a thought.

  35. Here! I’ve done it! Before going into specifics, I have a question for you mx. (Is that ok if I call you mx? It just easier to say in my head…) Is your birthday in 5 days or is it just the deadline for the vote and the victorious scene will come out on your birthday later?

    Now with only 5 days left to vote, may I present you my “Why have I been convinced to switch my vote from the Hayloft scene to the Bungalow scene?” comment.

    First what are we really talking about here? Let’s do some research.

    - The Hayloft Scene:
    At the end of Chapter 3 “Wild Blue Yonder” Chuck convinced Sarah to sleep for 4 hours in a Polish Hayloft. We leave them as they’re falling asleep. Next thing we know, they’re in Greece at the beginning of Chapter 4 “Don't Mess With Mrs. Rogers”. That’s when we heard about what happened in the Hayloft: cuddling. I’m not sure about the delimitations of the scene but my guess is: from the moment they landed in Poland to the moment they left the place to take their little walk.

    - The Bungalow Scene:
    I may be wrong here about the delimitations of that scene, but from my understanding it seems that this scene goes from the moment they arrived in that Greek Bungalow in Chapter 4 “Don't Mess With Mrs. Rogers” until the moment they left it. From Sarah’s POV that scene has an entirely different part because Chuck and Sarah separated for a moment.

    So first reaction: CUDDLING? I want to see that Hayloft scene!!! Yep, except…

    1/ In that post, Frea specifically said: “Oh, and speaking of polls, I'm kind of surprised everybody is voting for the Hayloft rather than the Bungalow in mxpw's birthday poll. You're really missing out, I think... :)”

    Tease, you say? Maybe. But that’s not all.

    2/ An Anonymous comment on that same post said: “While it would be fun to get her perspective when she sneaks into the bungalow around Chuck's sensors and sees him sleeping and then being suddenly awaken by Chuck's flash (if that is the part you are talking about, I could very well be wrong), I'm still more interested in reading about her reaction to waking up "cuddling" with Chuck in the hayloft.”

    And Frea answered: “All very good points, on the surface, but I challenge you this: which scene is Chuck fully clothed in, hmm? And don't forget about the powerful force that is Mission Mode Sarah in eradicating pesky things like emotions. :)”

    3/ Finally, like it wasn’t enough already, again on that post, KGP’s comment “Well, I just changed my vote from Hayloft to Bungalow. I'm now expecting some seriously sexy Charah moments =)” generated Frea’s “KGP, I promise you, if Bungalow wins, nobody will be disappointed.”

    Still not convinced? I’ve got more.

    4/ On that post, Frea commented: “Yep, I'm happy the Bungalow is slowly gaining ground, as there are several fun things about Randy that I would love to reveal in that story, and of course, Sarah Walker's tired emotions are all over the place.”

    Not a Randy fan? Fine, next.

  38. 4/ On that post, Frea commented: “Yep, I'm happy the Bungalow is slowly gaining ground, as there are several fun things about Randy that I would love to reveal in that story, and of course, Sarah Walker's tired emotions are all over the place.”

    Not a Randy fan? Fine, next.

    5/ On that post (where there is an awesome excerpt from The Bank Job btw if you missed it – coming September 1st), Frea said: “Sarah's plan was a little too set for it to be thought up on the fly. Might want to encourage people to vote for the Bungalow to get a glimpse of more. Hayloft doesn't reveal much.”

    6/ After that, an Anonymous commenter smartly remarked: “It seems as though Frea is more interested in writing the Bungalow scene, that should tell us all something.”

    Well I can’t speak for Frea, but that’s also how I see things, especially after she mentioned the scene in…

    7/ Chapter 36 “The Canyon Is Not Enough”:

    "Chuck, I've seen you in nothing but your boxers before. It's not a big deal."

    "You have not."

    "Excuse me? What were you wearing when I had to climb into bed with you in the bungalow in Greece?"

    The bungalow in—Chuck abruptly flashed back to that moment and went the color of a siren. "Oh crap."

    "I'll have you know you tried to spoon me, too."


    So what do you say now? Half naked Chuck trying to spoon Sarah? It seems to me that Frea wants to write that scene and just gave us the counter-cuddling argument!

    So in short, the Bungalow scene will contain:
    - Interesting things about Randy, he is Sarah’s ex and Jack Burton ex-associate after all.
    - More about Sarah’s plan to get Chuck out of the bunker, and by extension maybe a little more about those 2 years Chuck and Sarah have been apart.
    - Sarah coming back to the Bungalow, coming in by the window, seeing Chuck’s pictures, and finding Chuck in his boxers.
    - Sarah climbing to bed with half naked Chuck trying to spoon her.
    - And Sarah Walker's tired emotions are all over the place.

    And how do we now all that? Whereas the Author herself said about the Hayloft: “Hayloft doesn't reveal much.” Frea has been giving up all those elements about the Bungalow scene. And did she ever disappoint us?

    Oh and mx, I know what you’re gonna say. That scene is for YOUR birthday. True. I just hope I’ve convinced you! :)

  39. mxpw may just be happy because I've mentioned the word "Kindle" several times. :)

    And some of those things about Randy may not be true, just for the record.

    Re: Hayloft Scene or the Bungalow Scene

    As for me I really hope, Frea writes both the stories. Now all we have to do is bank on mxpw to win some bet with Frea and as a consequence to that she gets to write the scene that loses out in the poll.
