Chris and I were talking about several of the issues surrounding the story arcs after Season 2 … things that CM has brought up on several occasions. I think we talk about these things on Chuckaholics quite a bit, and it’s what makes the site so much fun to participate in. Continuity is slightly different, though. I will go with the current definition…
” In fiction, continuity (also called time-scheme) is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer over some period of time. It is relevant to several media.”
Notice it does mention plot, but I don’t want to get bogged down with plot or arc here. What’s fun about being into a show is often finding those continuity issues and exposing them. That’s really the point of this post…let’s have some fun and post up some of the holes in continuity during Chuck’s run. The pilot was full of them, and a lot of the first episodes as well. That’s to be expected since the Pilot is shot well before any episodes.
So let me start with just a few of the more obvious ones, and then let everyone have a turn putting down their own.
First, Casey calling his mom from the Buy More and saying, “It’s Johnny Boy”, but then later ( in Tic Tac ) finding out that his real name is Alex Coburn.
Second, in The Cliffhanger, Chuck is kissing the bride and reaches up to cradle Sarah’s face. We see the Twist Tie ring they wore during the practice run. When it shows it again and Chuck is about to dip Sarah and give her another kiss, the Twist Tie is gone.
OK Gang…have at it ! Lots of fun to be had on the site here….
