Tweets Of The Week

The final days of Chuck , Moffat on the music of “The Doctor, The Widow And The Wardrobe” and light-switch-licking. Yep, light-switch-licking

There’s a reason you may have noticed Chuck featuring fairly frequently in this regular roundup of sci-fi celeb tweets over the past few weeks. That’s because around about now the crew will be filming the final ever scenes of the show, which airs in the States on 27 January 2012 after five years on the air. It’s been a tumultuous half-decade on this side of the screen, with the show constantly teetering on the brink of cancellation due to its so-so ratings, but on-screen it’s been nothing but a success. There isn’t a sweeter show in all of science fiction, and it remains one of the few guaranteed fun 45 minutes of the week, with a band of lovable misfits to pick up the slack even when the mission of the week disappoints.

The other reason Chuck features fairly frequently in Tweets Of The Week is that it happens to have one of the most active casts on Twitter. All of the key players tweet regularly (though if you follow @ adamsbaldwin , you’ll know why he doesn’t appear as often as the others) which means we’ve been given an unusual amount of access to the final few days of a series for the price of a few “follows”. Needless to say, for the cast and fans of the show it’s been a teary week:

@ Y_Strahovski We wrapped the Buy More last night around 1am. Said our final goodbyes as we walked out of stage 17 for the last time

Shot the very last scene of the series yesterday... Woke up with puffy eyes this morning from crying all day AHH!! Five more days ........

@ ZacharyLevi And that's a wrap on the Buy More. She was a good ship, and served us well.

@ Scott_Krinsky Putting in some final hours with @MarkChrLawrence %26 # VikSahay

The "LAST" night in the Buy More:(. Jeff and Lester tired from a hard days work.#VikSahay


It’s not all been puffy eyes though. Chuck wouldn’t been Chuck without a couple of laughs and some happy memories:

@ steven_moffat To clarify: any Doctor Who movie would be made by the BBC team, star the current TV Doctor and certainly NOT be a Hollywood reboot.

Movie thing: David Yates, great director, was speaking off the cuff, on a red carpet. You've seen the rubbish I talk when I'm cornered.

Also a true fact: @murraygold will break your heart in The Doctor, The Widow And The Wardrobe. Stuff the writing, it's all about the music.

@ WilliamShatner @TheRealNimoy I don't know about her hair buns but @CarrieFFisher 's buns are better than Spock's ears. And they can hear better. MBB

@ jwrinzler Saw last five reels of Director's Cut of Jedi--some scenes different/longer. Saw Lucas's re-cut of sarlacc scene. Writing, up to page 40...


Where the deer and the antelope shoot you in the face.

@ DamonLindelof If you name a movie "War Horse" there is a reasonable expectation said horse will wear armor and/or shoot flames from its nostrils.

@ ERICBALFOUR # Haven family on our way to the @Syfy Holiday event in NYC! Bangerang!!!

@ jamesmoran Ooh, day 3 of Children of Earth on Watch tonight, at 00.40. On Watch, so probably cut to bits with ad breaks mid sentence.

@ AntoniaLThomas Just bought a nice new pair of @Converse , definitely essential footwear!


@ MoTancharoen Reunion. # Dollhouse
