Today marks the fifth anniversary of the Chuck series finale, and one of the most controversial final episodes in television history.
It was an emotional time. Many of us had been fighting for this show since season 2. We were invested in Charah, in Carmichael Industries, in Casey and his daughter Alex, in Morgan and his growth (and Alex), in Ellie and Captain Awesome and Baby Clara, in JEFFSTER! and the Buy More. I remember weeping as I watched the final episodes the night before and wrote up as non-spoilery of a preview as I could.
Then the rest of the world saw those final episodes, and there was much to say. Our annual survey showed that most people liked or even loved the finale, but the final scene of Chuck and Sarah on the beach left many viewers feeling like the ending was ambiguous. The debate over the finale was long and fraught. We even invited Chris Fedak to join us on Chuck vs the Podcast and answer your questions.
But that was then. The question for today is, how do we feel about the finale now, in 2017? In the grand tradition of ChuckTV.net, we’ve created a survey asking you that very question – and a couple more, of course. You can take the survey by clicking here. We’ll run the survey through Friday, February 17, then publish the results.
We also invite you to share your memories and current thoughts about Chuck in the comments section. Viva Chuck!
