Not that there was much doubt.
Chuck Versus The Honeymooners! Honeymooners jumped out to an early lead that it never lost. And it makes sense that this one should win. It’s the episode that restored many fans faith that the show could remain fun with Chuck and Sarah together while avoiding “The Moonlighting Curse”. Join me after the jump for details and comments.
So Tuesday September 24th at 9PM EDT/6PM PDT we will be re-watching Chuck Versus The Honeymooners. In addition to twitter (hashtag #Chuck to keep it simple) we’ll be live-blogging here for those without twitter. For our foreign friends you can convert the time here, and for those who want to synchronize their watches as well as possible, go here. Remember to convert to the 24-hour thingy and look for 21:00:00.
We’ll be reminding people throughout the week and up until re-watch time. At some point we want to take a run at most tweets per second, so we may be setting up some synchronized tweets at pre-set points in the show. Come here or watch twitter for details.
See you all Tuesday, September 24th at 9PM. Spread the nerd.
I’d like to give a special thanks and shoutout to both Mel of ChuckTV.Net and Kris of WeGiveAChuck.com for helping spreading the nerd (regarding the votes). ChuckTV and WGAC (and hopefully their followers) should be joining us for Chuckiversary and what fun that will be!
As this is an anniversary rewatch, we will certainly have more to say on the date about Chuck (in general) and the episode in particular but for now here are some interesting tidbits that you may or may not have read about Chuck vs. The Honeymooners or as I like to call it, “fun for everyone.”
– Ken Tucker of EW! review of Honeymooners:
“Fans know that Chuck doesn’t operate with the biggest budget in prime time, and so we were charmed by the mileage “Honeymooners” got out of that little stateroom barely big enough for Chuck and Sarah’s bed. The plot that made it difficult for C. and S. to give up the spy life (they believe they’ve come upon a Basque terrorist trio on the train) also allowed for some nicely choreographed close-quarters martial-arts fighting, some of it while C. and S. were handcuffed to each other.”
– Sepinwall, previously of NJ and now Hitfix:
“If anything, putting nerd turned spy Chuck (Zachary Levi) and spy turned nerd-lover Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) together has actually made ‘Chuck’ better”
– Feinberg of HitFix
– Mo Ryan, formerly of Tribune, now AOL/Huffpost.
– Our very own Chuckthisblog (rewatch) recap…
– And finally the day of Honeymooners live viewing, rapid reactions. That’s a blast from the past right there! So much good stuff.
