Revisiting Chuckaholic’s Vision
First, I would like to take the time to welcome JD, Gary, Paul, Sarah, Andy. Clara and YStrahovski.PHILS for your contribution to the site. Your voices are what inspired me to create Chuckaholics back in January. I am proud of the work we do on this site, and furthermore working with you in making Chuckaholics a memorable site for everyone to enjoy.
That being said, I have to make point of emphasis on this site’s mission. Twitter or Facebook doesn’t give me a real opportunity to give my opinion on a Chuck Movie and or new season because there isn’t enough words that can describe what I want to say.
I am not trying to discourage the movement about fighting for a Chuck movie, but let’s put it in the harshest terms possible. If Zac can’t move the powers that be towards getting a movie started. We the fans don’t have a pray in getting through to WB. After all the show was very fortunate in getting 91 episodes to begin with.
We can send letters, stomp on their door steps, and other means of trying to get the job done, but until WB sees $$$ in considering making a movie all we can do is wait. So, instead of cursing Yvonne and Zac. Let’s not ruin the memories we already have.
It is safe to say most people didn’t like season 5. In fact, I stop watching season 5 after Sarah puts on the Intersect glasses because my heart won’t bare to watch Charah fight and seeing Quinn erase Sarah’s memories, which for me it felt like the creators and writers destroying the Sarah character on screen.
All the work Yvonne put into Sarah Walker gone just like that. Its not fair to her or the viewer to watch such a heinous act. Now that I got my rant out of the way. Back to why I am writing this article.
Those that wish for a season 6, I am sad to say, but its not going to happen. The cast are off doing other things, and as much as Zac keeps fighting for Chuck, he too will have to return to work sooner or later, he is too good of an actor to stay at home.
A movie or even a reunion show would be more applicable. Imagine the budget they can get for a movie.The action scenes would be enhanced. I don’t want to be a party pooper because I am not saying I don’t want more Chuck memories, but we first have to take steps in order to accomplish that dream. We as Chuck fans need to stop using the word fan and replace it with family. Those that support our cause can direct message me or JD if you are interested in joining our family.
JD, I loved your article about getting organized, but there is something I have to remind you all. Chuckaholic’s mission is not just about seeking a movie or new season. Its about creating a place Chuck fans can call home.
There is difference between being a fan base and that of which becomes a family. Family stick together, and we fight for the same issues that stand before us. We show support for Zac at Nerd HQ or watch 24 for Yvonne. Adam Baldwin’s new show The Last Ship is typical Adam, but we love him because of his work as Casey.
I will help or endorse any opportunity for Chuck fans to promote their work. Chuckaholic also invites all those that have fan pages, blogs or any other means of showcasing their passion for Chuck to join us. Use Chuckaholics as a platform. Expenses are not an issue because I take care of that. We want to create the best Chuck site, and not just for seeking a movie that may never happen.
We do it because we love Chuck, and 91 episodes offers a lot to talk about. We don’t need Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz to fix anything because in my opinion they did what they could.
It is very difficult to run a show, when you get constant budget cuts, threats of cancellations and pressure to script stories based on what the network wanted. It handcuffs the creators to deliver a show they truly want. Do you think they wanted to let CS Lee and Julia Ling walk. No, it was clear in several articles they had big plans for those characters, but cuts forced their hand.
People often complain about how season three turned out. A lot of fans have said they split after Chuck vs The Mask, but let’s put ourselves in their shoes. We don’t know what went on during creative meetings. If NBC came to Chris and Josh about making changes to the show. What choice did they have? Those that hold the gold make the rules, and if you ask me the first 12 episodes of Season Three were highly questionable on who was behind the writing or decision making.
So, remember campaigning for a movie is fine and dandy and I have wrote articles about that such as Operation Bring Back Chuck or bringing Chuck Back to life, but Chuckaholics mission is so much more than getting the movie.. Don’t lose site of the mission at hand. Chuckaholics is the home for all things Chuck, and it is already taking shape. So, follow us, join in on the discussions. I mean it when I said Chuckaholics is your toy so play,
