Here is a brief rundown of my thoughts regarding the final season of Chuck. I plan on doing a much longer post when the show officially ends next year, but I wanted to jot some things down while yesterday's panel was still fresh in my mind. What follows are my personal opinions only.
You can see my thoughts after the jump.
P.S. New Curtain Call entry drops tomorrow AND the Fringe Rewatch is back, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel (chat starts at 7:30 CT).
Today is Sunday, so that means that, sadly, quite possibly the last ever Comic Con panel for Chuck has now passed. I say quite possibly only because with NBC, one can never be too sure that the network won't get desperate and extend Chuck yet again. But I think we all know that is very unlikely to happen and I can't deny that that makes me sad.
For you see, while my...affection for the show has lessened somewhat over the years, this is still my fandom. I am really going to miss Chuck when it's gone. I know what most of you are probably thinking. You're probably thinking that by Chuck I really mean Yvonne, and we all know I'd be lying if I even tried to deny that. So yes, I will miss Yvonne most of all. Frea will probably need to be on suicide watch after the series finale. Either that or I'll have to go to some kind of rehab facility to get over my SWP addiction. But be that as it may, I actually will miss more than just Yvonne Strahovski and Sarah Walker. Hard to believe, I know, but it's true.
I'm going to miss this fandom and the people I've met in it. I don't plan on disappearing, but I've known enough fandoms over the years to know that when most shows end, the fandom tends to break apart too. And that will be a sad day. So while I still enjoy the show and still like Chuck and Sarah and will always be a huge Yvonne fanboy, I just wanted to say thanks to this fandom for making me want to stick around till the end. I've made some real friends because of this show and I'll always be grateful to the show for that.
I also wanted to say thank you to the people who've read my stories, thank you to the people who write stories, thank to those who read this blog and comment, thank you to everyone who follows me on twitter, and the biggest thanks of all to those of you who link me to stuff about YS/SW. Haha. You guys are all awesome and I hope to see you around even after the show ends.
As for the final season itself, I just say let it ride, guys. I intend to just watch and hope I enjoy. That's one of the biggest reasons why Frea and I will most likely no longer be doing any mxpw vs. Frea reviews. Do what you need to do to enjoy the show. If Morgansect gets too much for you, you can think of ways to console me after I no longer get a weekly dose of Sarah Walker. Sounds like a good use of your time to me!
So what were your impressions about Chuck's panel at Comic Con? How do you feel about the show ending? Will you also be sad about no more Sarah Walker? Let me know!
