As of today, 9/7/2010, Season three is now available on DVD and Bu-Ray. It comes out to four discs on the Blu-Ray set, and five for the DVD.
For those who are HD fans I have one very good piece of news, the inferior menu structure from the first two seasons has been fixed; it now loads much like a DVD to a top menu, they no longer start with the autoplay of the first episode in the disc. Sure, everyone who routinely sits down to watch seven episodes at a time will be inconvenienced by this, but for the rest of us its an improvement.
The contents are similar to past seasons. Deleted scenes for some episodes (yes the same scenes that have been floating around the internet for a while) are present on each disc for the appropriate episodes. While the final disc includes an overview featurette, with some very good interviews (my favorite, Brandon Routh explaining how Chuck being saved by a fan campaign means the fans should have some say in the show. Don’t think about it too much, your brain may explode) called “Chuck-Fu and Dim Sum”. Very little effort is made to explain the season or the fan reaction, but I suppose this is not the place for it anyway.
There also a Jeffster Mockumentary and the mandatory gag reel. I thought the gag reel was better than S2, not as good as S1; some very funny stuff here, especially the much discussed Jeff in Shaw’s shower moment.
