@ J_Tati: I wish I had been too but around the middle of season 2 GG basically became a waste of time for me - DS lost thier spark and CB were mind-numbingly boring. I had never really paid much attenton to CB - always just thought they would have a fling and then move on. When TPTB decided to elevacate them to "EPIC LOVE" status I was thoroughly confused and had to go back and re-watch some old episodes to see if I had missed anything...of course I hadn't, I didn't happen.
CB has to be the most over-hyped relationship I've ever seen...but then I have to remind myself that I am not within the target demo for this show and so I guess in the land of tweens and bored adult women...this is what constitutues for great love? Sad state of affairs if you ask me. CB has little foundation and absolutely no substance unless you count year after year of Blair constantly degrading herself to prove herself wothy of Chuck's love while he at the same time plays games and treats her badly. Serously, do women find this attractive in a man? Shame on you writers.
For me, and alot of others (non Chuck fans, non shippers, media), Dair was the only bright spark that came out of this mess and I'm glad to see that I'm not alone. Whatever Chuck/Chair stans see in CB they can have tbh because after six seasons and a season finale that showed me CB together with a kid...I'm STILL shaking my head about the fact that they completely skipped over actually showing me a relationship on screen that would've warranted such an endgame...but their fans are eating it up...I guess some people like Ikea some people like Ethan Allen!
Anyway, I'd glad to see that I'm not alone...again, never hated any of the characters but just seriously never understood the over-hyped Chair relationship and maybe I'm a decade too old to do so. Too bad I didn't discover you guys sooner because based on the previous posts I've seen, I think I would have enjoyed what appeared to be some lively, witty discourse!
I should add that I don't really have any issues with the majority of Derena fans...just a few who get nasty from time to time. As I've said before, Derena fans tend to like Dan (or at least I hope they do) so I have no complaints there...we just happen to think differently about his true HEA. However, Chair stans have always been a boil on the butt of humanity...and decensy for that matter...truthfully, I never really hated Chuck...just Chair. However, Chuck stans make me want to hate Chuck.
