First! NO HASHTAG for September 14th. Instead, we will type out We Heart Chuck as three separate words, in honor of the American Heart Association fund raising effort by the campaign of the same name. That is right, absolutely NO HASHTAG for this week. It is time we test to see if we can trend common words as opposed to hashtags. Might as well start now. So, your tweets could look like:
Chuck and Sarah are so cute together in this episode! We Heart Chuck
Second, we may be changing terms every week. So, check back here every Tuesday or Wednesday for the new strategy.
Third, now for the strategy:
Based on the poll, the majority want to continue into Season 2 of CHUCK in order. So, we will do that. However, since there are some people who can't find it in their wallet to spend $2 to $3 a week on CHUCK (I spend more than that a day on tea), I am going to offer up alternate strategies for them.
We watch Season 2 in order from First Date to Ring. You can purchase the episodes via iTunes, Amazon, Playstation Network, and XBOX Live or find some other method I don't want to know about (well, not publicly at least).
AMAZON - $1.99 per SD episode; $35.02 for the whole season (savings of $8.76)
AMAZON - $2.99 per HD episode; $52.62 for the whole season (savings of $13.16)
iTunes - $1.99 per SD episode; $39.99 for the whole season (savings of $3.79)
iTunes - $2.99 per HD episode; $59.99 for the whole season (savings of $5.79)
Playstation Network - $1.99 per SD episode; no full season price offered; no HD offered (no link either)
XBox Live - 160 points = $2.00 per SD episode; no full season price offered; no HD offered
ALTERNATE STRATEGY #1
Watch any random episode from the second half of Season 2 on NBC.com, selected from Third Dimension to Ring. Fans will watch at the same time as the main strategy group and tweet as normal. You will likely annoy the rest of us with your tweets about Best Friend and Colonel every week, but whatever. If you can't afford the episodes, or find some other way of acquiring them (I told you! I DON'T WANT TO KNOW!), then this is at least a way that you can join us and help the trending. :)
Alternate Strategy #2
Watch Season 1 over again. I don't care in what order. Just tweet like a maniac.
There you go. I do not recommend buying the entire season yet, unless you really want to own it now. NBC and WB might have the correct order of episodes coming for online viewing (looks like NBC's license for the second half runs out on the 20th of this month).
