TV Series Review: Chuck (Season 5)

Continuing from the eponymous cliffhanger ending of the fourth season finale, "Chuck Versus the Cliffhanger", the fifth season will feature the series returning to its roots. With their new-found wealth, Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah Bartowski (Yvonne Strahovski) own the fictional big-box store Buy More, as well as their new freelance spy organization, Carmichael Industries, which includes John Casey (Adam Baldwin) and Morgan Grimes (Joshua Gomez). Meanwhile, Morgan acts as the human possessor of the government database known as the Intersect, and Chuck is forced to act as Morgan's protector in the same way that Sarah and Casey were to Chuck in past seasons.

When i heard Season 5 will be the last of Chuck i was both happy and unhappy. Unfortunatelly, they didn't really tell us it would only be 13 episodes. That was a surprise that i didn't like.

Even though Season 5 starts, as the summary above describes it has many changes and more than one plot in. As always Interesect is the main part of the story and this time it's not Chuck the one who has it.

For me, season 5 was a lot better than Season 4. It was closer to the oldest season with the missions and everything than follow a big plotline. To also see how the characters have now changed is pretty awesome too. Especially when someone like Morgan has the intersect. There were many good episodes with Ellie and Awesome playing spies too, and even the duo Jeffster has more screentime than before.

The best part was easily the last 4 episodes, where something really unexpected happens and it turns that series into an entire different plot. You may have already see around, how sad was everyone with the ending and that wasn't just because the series ended. The ending was not the ideal perfect ending but mostly something that matched and gave you sweet-sad feeling at the end. Personally i didn't expect to be so sad about it. I thought i would be able to live without the series but it really made me want to have more but i can't say it didn't put a smile on my face too. The flashbacks was the most difficult part and they did an amazing job putting them at the right time that i'm pretty sure they made many people cry.

Chuck was one of my favorites series i ever watched. It was funny, geeky, with lots of action and every episode was entertaining. I'm really happy i followed the series and the actors around for the last 3 years ( i didn't start it when it first came out) and i'm already missing it. I highly doubt there will be ever a series to fit its place since it had an originality which yet, i haven't seen around.


  1. I love this show!! One of my favourites....I'm gonna start the last season soon and I'm sure I'm gonna be sad about it....Anyway, I'm gonna miss it....I hardly doubt if there is going to be any other series as great as this one....

  2. i know that you like this show but i really don't.. i have seen the first season and a bunch of other episodes and i didn't like it. i find the story boring and very unrealistic (i know it is a tv show and i watch more unrealistic shows), also i don't like the main actors..


There is lot of spam lately at the posts, so for a while i will put up the comment moderation. Sorry for that, i really don't like it but i thought it might stop the spamming. It will be down soon enough! Thanks a lot :)
