My Say On Blu Ray Blog: Chuck – The Complete Fifth Season (5/8/12)
Chuck is one of those shows that always seemed to fly under the radar…it’s fans loved it, but it was never a big winner in the ratings.
I think I figured out why.
Chuck is one of those shows that is tough to categorize. Is it action? Drama? Comedy? Romance? Truth is.. it’s all of the above, and as it’s final fifth season hits Blu-ray.. it’s a great package to pick up and watch from the beginning. NOW!!
In May, Warner Home Entertainment will bring Chuck: The Complete Fifth Season to Blu-ray. The final season of NBC’s cult television program finds the title character (Zachary Levi, Tangled) struggling to become a full-fledged spy.
From Warner’s official synopsis:
“Without the CIA as backup, Chuck will have to rely now more than ever on John Casey [Adam Baldwin, Firefly: The Complete Series], Sarah Walker [Yvonne Strahovski, Killer Elite], and a new Intersect — Morgan Guillermo Grimes [Joshua Gomez, Chuck: The Complete Fourth Season]. Across this thrilling final season, Chuck will find that his wits, his friends, and his family are the only backup he needs.”
