1 December 2010,
According to THR.com, Chuck is the Number 1 torrented TV show for this week. I know it's illegal and all, but how cool is that? If only NBC took note.

Here's a list of the top pirated TV shows on Pirate Bay:
2.Gossip Girl
3.The Event

why is it illegal to download something that is broadcast free to the viewer?

Anonymous on December 2, 2010 at 2:09 AM

Firstly because they own the rights so it depends on them who they share it with and how. Secondly: It was made by their money what they get back if you watch it so they get more advert proposal or when they sell it as a dvd or when foreign countries tv channels buy the show. If you share it, there will be less dvd buyer so they earn less money.

I wouldn't be able to watch it otherwise

I pay my sattelite bill and they air Chuck. It is however not possible with my working hours so I do watch it on quasy illegal sites without feeling guilty since I have paid for the show and Sweden is so far behind on episodes so it doesn't affect ratings.

Yeah cause I'm in Australia and we have to watch it online if we're even half decent Chuck fans! :D

Go Chuck!

If it's on my DVR I have every right to download it, mostly because i'm too lazy to walk to my living room :P

Same here. In New Zealand we are only just up to the final episode of Season 3 next week. I watched one Season 4 episode when it first came out and was hooked!

Posting the same I posted in TVBTN

When I was in US visiting my sister for 4 weeks I watched Chuck live and when I was back in Sri Lanka(yeah that’s where I was born and live) I catched 1st two season in AXN(Asian cable channel) and after that only way to watch Chuck for me is torrents and other warez sites.Buying DVD’s online and bringing ‘em here costs me dvd prize + 50% tax(yeah my “greaT” government put 50% tax for online DVD sales and ebay items,even it is a small 1$ thing.I know that is crap but what can I do :( :( ) which will costs me like 100$ for single season,I don’t have 400$ kinda money for a tv series O.o.Anyway when my sister visit here in 2011 she will buy and bring me all 3 seasons-legit which I will pay later,and that will be profit for NBC(WB ofc :P ).This is the story for most of outside US Chuck(and any other tv series fans,I do same for HIMYM,HF-0,NCIS,WWE Raw,Kyle XY,Leverage) fans and gladly in my countries law atm torrents are not illegal,won’t be illegal for some time too(they got bag loads of other crisis’s than torrents and warez right now) :P :P :P .About the topic heading of course no.

i agree with cro...

Bea on December 2, 2010 at 9:42 AM

there's no other way to watch chuck if you live in a coutry where not even the first season has aired...

The Captain on December 2, 2010 at 12:22 PM

I agree with all other comments.For me to feel good about myself, I buy every season DVD from Amazon in blu ray (even though I live in Sweden) and watch the show on swedish channels even when they're on season 3!

NBC should take actions with this problem. So they will know how many viewers watch Chuck around the world!

Comment by chris0805 on December 2, 2010 at 4:28 PM

woohoo go chuck give us the promo video please
oh and dont say where you downloanded it or watched it online they might block the site than

Anonymous on December 2, 2010 at 5:17 PM

Sorry NBC... my country is way behind, season 2 ep. 3 and after the first season long ago here in Denmark I also started the torrent path, the show is just THAT good :)
If only NBC would allow download or stream via NBC.com outside US I would gladly pay money for that service. Go Chuck.... :)

Anonymous on December 2, 2010 at 8:45 PM

this only shows how great is Chuck. And yes, I also leave out of the US and the only way I can watch Chuck is by downloading it. If NBC made a copyright with world wide channels to air Chuck, it would see their gains increasing like 10x... They know who are the US spects (around 5.5 millions) what they don´t know is the world dimension :)

You can view it at nbc.com/chuck when you're in the inet with a vpn or something like hotspot shield.

Anonymous on December 2, 2010 at 10:13 PM

As my countrymen 'CRO' said (I am almost certain that we are fellow countrymen)... In some countries it is the only way and I hope no one will interrupt.
I watched the pilot on TV, and there was no further series. And I really liked it, so I looked for a series on the net, and saw that it had already started the 3. season. I have not slept for 7 nights in a row as I needed to review the first and second season.
Now I'm hooked on the series and can hardly wait for the next episode.

As many before said, I'm from Slovakia and I can't watch it here, because on NBC.com can watch things only americans. But I don't use torrent to download :) If they could coun't things like fileserve.com and rapidshare.com etc., they would've found more people. If I didn't wanna cross the law, I'd have to wait enormous ammount of time to watch it in here, but with terrible dabbing.

Anonymous on December 3, 2010 at 12:30 AM

I would watch it on TV, but NBC is 'blocked'. Though there is a channel I can watch with a French translate(that I understand cause i'm bilingual)... they are only in middle season 3 now... So i download it cause I want to re-watch episodes, in English, with the original voices.

Anonymous on December 3, 2010 at 7:30 AM

As chuck fan in Australia its just getting to hard .
Sites are being blocked... I've watched most of chuck on line, but I still went and bought all the seasons on DVD.
We can't wait till next year to buy season 4
Will loose interest in chuck very soon :-(

Anonymous on December 4, 2010 at 5:30 AM

Yea, in Australia, we are behind and I don't even know when it is on! It is such a great show and for some reason it wont let me watch it on the NBC website? :(

Chuck is cool. :)

Comment by CHUCKster on December 4, 2010 at 7:15 AM

As much as i really appreciate CHUCK being the topmost pirated show on the web, i just want to say "Please try to watch live. And buy the DVD! ;D"

But honestly, I'm not surprised about this 'cause let's face it -CHUCK IS THE BEST SHOW EVA! ^0^

Anonymous on December 4, 2010 at 12:12 PM

of course I also bought the DVD's, anything to keep this show alive.

Anonymous on December 8, 2010 at 12:44 AM

I just have to repeat what the others have said. The only way for me to watch Chuck is doing so illegally, sadly. Unless I want to watch season two. It's the same as with any other show, perhaps the networks should think about that.. I'd happily pay to stream HD Chuck from NBC's website.

Adrastea on December 9, 2010 at 3:25 AM

Cro is right! By the way, how AWESOME is the fact that Chuck has viewers in all the world?

Dittersdorf on December 29, 2010 at 10:19 AM

Definitly NOT cool.
Pirating shows = shows get canceled due to no one watching them when they are aired, and lack of puchicing the dvds through legal means.
