A few weeks back I had a funny story I never got around to telling so I thought I’d share. Sunday night, the 10th I was awakened to a throbbing sensation that while not common, is familiar; I feel a root canal coming on! Yes indeed, several (and by several I mean eight) Ibuprofen later (it was like throwing handfuls of sand into the Grand Canyon wondering why it wasn’t full yet) I was ready to have Chuck knock the darn thing out. You see this was the Sunday before Chuck vs The Tooth. On my drive back from the ancestral home Monday morning I decided to try a few extra strength Tylenol. First I am in no way associated with that product, but wow. Pain free the rest of the day. The bad, I was so pain-free my dentist couldn’t identify the tooth by testing, and even though I was darn sure I pointed the right one out, she’s shooed me off to the endodontist Tuesday morning with strict instructions NOT to take painkillers before the appointment. So Tuesday morning I got a root canal, and just for irony sake, I’d pointed out the wrong tooth. Life and Chuck mirroring each other again. But that’s not why I’m writing or what this post is about. Present evidence to the contrary.
We’ve got an epic game changing season finale tomorrow night, and things may get a bit dull after that. So we here at ChuckThisBlog will probably be taking some breaks and scaling things back a bit, but we don’t want to go totally off the air. This is just too much fun. We’ve been kicking around a few ideas for things to do in the interminable four months till the next new episode of Chuck. Let’s discuss and hopefully get some feedback after the jump.
So here we are, facing a few months without Chuck. Better than the alternative! In this interregnum between season 3 and 4 we have a chance to do a few things. Catch up on past episodes, re-watch with some new context, organize to make sure there is a back 9, and just have some fun in a more or less angst free environment discussing Chuck. So here’s my sort of request and/or assignment. Start thinking about what you’d like to fill the gap with, and where you, our most valued resource, would like to see this blog go. Since this is a hobby for all of us keep in mind somethings just aren’t going to happen. A podcast, well there are several, and it seems our interest is limited. A page that is more forum oriented? There has been some thought of that as an add-on. Overall we think our particular niche in the Chuckverse is the essays and the discussion and the atmosphere we manage to maintain, and we want to stick with our strengths rather than duplicate other sites. But all suggestions are valuable, they do keep us thinking. So, feel free to post a few here, or think about it for a few days. After the excitement and buzz of the finale dies down we’ll try to come back with some polls and suggestions for your consideration. And as always, thanks for stopping by. In the mean time I thought we could get a quick snapshot of how we liked the season before the epic and awesome finale changes everything.
Pick your top three.
