People have asked me "Why is May CHUCK month?" And I look at them as if they are strange... like, shouldn't EVERY month be CHUCK month? Isn't that the question you should be asking?
Though, I do have a logic behind choosing this month.
The month of May in the year 2012, is the final time we have a new DVD/BD release of a television season of CHUCK. And that should be reason enough to celebrate 5-seasons of a show we all love. If you didn't love it, then why are you here?!
Speaking of the DVD/BD release, you should make it a point to order one, or both, or multiple copies of both, at the links below.
Chuck: The Complete Fifth Season
Chuck: The Complete Fifth Season [Blu-ray]
There is also an apparent BOX SET for CHUCK that I still haven't heard much about and may or may not contain an actual box... set... or is, what I suspect it to be, just all the seasons in one package (which I do not consider a real box set). However you can order that at the links below:
Chuck: Seasons One - Five

I don't know why the "box set" is more expensive than buying individual seasons but if you want to give WB extra bundles of cash, go for it. Otherwise, I'd order the seasons separately.
I realize some of you don't buy DVD/BD's anymore, or so hated the season 5 finale that you refuse to buy it, but I know that many of you want to see a movie some day, or a continuation of the story, and the ONLY WAY THAT WILL HAPPEN is if people buy lots and lots and lots of this stuff. Because WB isn't going to entertain great ideas for continuing the series until they think they can make a profit.
Our star, and all around great guy, Zachary Levi had some great ideas and detailed them here in this interview... jump to 11:50 point for the start of the interview:
As I have been saying for months, and Zac details, WB isn't open to any new age ideas for bringing the show back until they see a return on their investment. That's where fans come in.
Yeah, yeah, I know... you don't want to hear it. "I DON'T WANT TO HAVE TO ACTUALLY WORK FOR SOMETHING! I WANT TO JUST SIGN PETITIONS AND PRETEND LIKE IT MEANS SOMETHING!"
Sorry... but if you want a movie, you're going to have to kick some ass, take some names, and spend money. The only thing you should be signing is your name to a list called "I Bought CHUCK Season 5!"
Alright, enough of my preaching.
But What Will We Get During CHUCK Month?!
So we're not just going to post one article this month and expect you all to do the heavy lifting by yourselves. We plan on writing several articles; a handful of CHUCK 91 features; a bunch of top 5/10 lists or podcasts; and maybe a surprise or two if I can make it happen!
I also plan on digging up some old material that some of you may have missed, including fan videos, events, and articles. These things should be released every few days so come back often. Though, I am debating whether or not to release anything on the weekends. It all depends on what you all want... so comment below.
We're also taking requests, so if there is something you want to see, let us know. WE WILL MAKE IT HAPPEN!
