Yeah, the long wait is over! Chuck Season Four is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD. A long season of 24 episodes, and a nice collection of extras means this set fills four (!) Blu-Rays or five (!!) DVDs.
The new content is a lot of fun as always. The extra scenes are maybe less interesting than in years past, there seems to have been less controversy about direction this year. Or maybe the tighter shooting schedule just meant less for the cutting room floor. So while a couple of the scenes are quite funny, I would say only the couple removed from Cliffhanger (buzz has it the episode was originally very over-length) really added valuable exposition. There is also a featurette of Josh Gomez practicing his spy skills (quite funny, right through Yvonne kicking his butt); one of Jeffster on the lam; and another on Zach Levi’s work as a director. The S4 gag reel is funny just like the previous entries. The Blu-Ray set also boasts a “Chuckipedia Interactive Experience” for episode 4.07; I haven’t played with this yet so I can’t really comment on its worth.
As always, most of this content has already been available on-line. But I would ask everyone who can afford it, to support our favorite show and buy a set (or two…)
