So, unless you have been hiding under a rock, you have heard by now that the episode of Chuck airing Monday, February 2nd, as well as certain commercials during the Superbowl, will be aired in 3-D. What you may not know is how to find those pesky 3-D glasses, and we are here to help! A list of the retailers who have the glasses has been provided by the kind people at RTWV Online.
Take my advice, print the list. I drove around aimlessly trying to remember it from memory, and had an afternoon made of fail until a phone call to my friend, Becky, saved me.
Target is on the list, but I was told by the manager at my Target that they did not have them, and had not been told they would be getting them in at all. Otherwise, the list is solid. Oh, and they are free, and come in sheets of four pairs. I was frankly a little shocked Pepsico didn’t take this opportunity to make us all buy at least a 20 oz bottle of Pepsi, but that is just my cynicism shining through.
Happy hunting! I can’t wait to see Chuck in a 3-D!
Update: We’ve all been wondering if those glasses from My Bloody Valentine, starring Jensen Ackles (see now at at theater near you!), will work for viewing the 3-D episode of Chuck. This lead to a science lesson from my brother, Bobby, and the following press release from the people who are bringing us this episode of Chuck:
Outside of the movie theater, televised video pieces such as the ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’3D trailer, the SoBe Lifewater 3D advertisement and the special 3D episode of Chuck will use an emerging technology, ColorCode 3D, to create a new way to view 3D in the home. It is a significant advancement over traditional 3D technology that has been available in the home and we believe ColorCode 3D provides the best quality experience that is currently available for the home viewing of 3D.
The point? Get yourself to one of the retailers on the list before its too late! The technology used to film 3-D on these two mediums is quite different, and not compatible in terms of the viewing experience. If you have a pair of 3-D glass that has reddish orange plastic on the left eye and bluish purple plastic on the other, you are good to go! Whew! Who know? Well, except my brother obviously.
