Chucktoberfest: The Beer Bash

The Internet Is Our Big Tent

Thanks Again to Frea O'Scanlin for the logo.

Chuck fans rule the web.  We know this.  Chuck, the actors, the couples, if they’re in an online poll and they’re in Chuck, chances are they’re going to win.  At least place or show if not outright win.  Chuck fans have an online presence like no others I’ve seen since Firefly.  So Chucktoberfest was a way to make that work for us, and modest as we here at ChuckThis are we’ll share the credit for the back 11 order with you, our wonderful readers.  Oh and you’re welcome for that sunrise too.  But here at ChuckThis, like Costa Gravas, first we fight for our show, then we party.  Monday night it’s party-time.  Nerdstyle.  Online.  With Video by Frea and helpful links, again, after the jump.

OK, so the idea of socializing online while watching Chuck isn’t exactly new, but you got to admit it’s a perfect fit with Octoberfest Chucktoberfest.  A big tent filled with picnic tables where people laugh and drink and talk and drink and sing and drink.  So the internet is our tent and our tables are twitter and the various boards like us, ChuckTV, the NBC boards and all the rest.  So let’s celebrate the recent happy news and convince TPTB we need another season in classic ChuckNerd style.  Blow up the internet and go pillaging through twitter and the NBC boards.  If you have a laptop and wireless internet watch TV and comment or tweet during the show.  Note the sponsors and tweet or e-mail them.  Just have fun joining in a night of Chuck knowing there are at least another 18, and hopefully 40 more to come.  Break out the iPad, the iPhone, the Blackberry the Droid or the Apple II, the Atari64, whatever just find a way to join in.  Swing by your beer store and pick up a tasty adult beverage from one of our sponsors on your way back from the Subway if you wish.  See you online in about 25 hours and counting.

So here’s an awesome how to video from Frea O’Scanlin on Chucktoberfest. Give it a look and remember to tell Frea thanks for helping us ludites out with the techie stuff.  😉

About Ernie Davis

I was born in 1998, the illegitimate brain child and pen name of a surly and reclusive misanthrope with a penchant for anonymity. My offline alter ego is a convicted bibliophile and causes rampant pognophobia whenever he goes out in public. He wants to be James Lileks when he grows up or Dave Barry if he doesn’t.  His hobbies are mopery, curling and watching and writing about Chuck.  Obsessively.  Really, the dude needs serious help.

    And the first toast goes to…

    Frea For The Video! Many thanks, and Cheers!

    • Ernie Davis says:

      I’ll drink to that!

      • Frea O says:

        Thanks, guys! Sadly enough, I won’t actually be able to participate in the Beer Bash, cos I’ll be on a plane, but I’ll raise my Dr. Pepper or whatever substitute Delta serves for my glorious, glorious elixir of life to you! 🙂

  3. herder says:

    Any recommended beverage from the sponsor list, Bud? Stella Artois? generic Octoberfest beer? Should there be drinking games ie sip when anyone says Chuck, when Casey grunts or Sarah emotes?

    • Faith says:

      Drinking game! Classic. All 3 please.

      Some chuckaholics and I had one last season for the finale: everytime Shaw appears or was mentioned we drank some Southern Comfort (whiskey without the gaming) and coca cola. We still may not like him, but at some point in the night we no longer cared haha.

    • Ernie Davis says:

      The decision was Stella and any Anheuser-Bush product as the beer sponsors. There was also an executive decision that since Canada was a sponsor in some markets any Canadian beer would count as supporting Canada. If anyone knows of another beer sponsor please add your voice. I know that Heineken was big in Honeymooners.

      Drink whenever someone refers to themself or another as a spy. It’s the season 4 version of “all these secrets” in season 1 or “a real spy” in seasons 2 and 3. On second thought don’t, you’d be in the emergency room by the second commercial break.

      • JC says:

        Last season I had party where we drank every time “real spy” was said. You had to do a shot if Sarah said it with a frown. It was like reliving my college days.

    • herder says:

      What I was trying to figure out were those lines which call for more than a sip. My own partial list follows:

      Chuck – an actual girlish scream.

      Sarah – full lioness mode “Don’t hurt him/it’s my job to protect him…from anything/I’ll never let anyone hurt you”.

      Casey – An elaborate insult “…coming from the one who can’t keep her chocolate out of Bartowski’s peanut butter…”

      Morgan – full out boundry crossing with Chuck.

      Ellie – When she shows the steel within her “you’re a Bartwoski, act like one…”

      Awesome – Either when he silences a room with a blunt remark or tries to lie (and fails miserably).

      Jeff – Any mention of his drinking pants.

      • Faith says:

        Hmm. That requires actually paying attention. After awhile that’s not possible 😉

        I’d go with every time the word “awesome” “Chuck” “grunt” is mentioned. And ok, a Sarah lioness event.

        LMAO @ Jeff’s drinking pants.

  4. Ernie Davis says:

    So here’s an idea. If you are going to be on twitter (I am though I may try to multitask) if you do a search on #Chucktoberfest and save it you can quickly retrieve all the #Chucktoberfest tweets whether you follow the person or not. Spread the nerd.

    I say a Chuck girlish scream, a real possibility in this episode, calls for a drain your beverage. Grunts, Chuck and awesome are all sips. A Chuck and Sarah kiss, or a we need to talk moment… I dunno, I’m thinking sip based on past episodes. A show of Charah love beyond the chaste kiss, perhaps a drain the beverage? Thoughts?

    This could be dangerous. Based on having to work basically all weekend I took tomorrow off…
