    Hey Friends,
    Just FYI: This episode was done a few weeks BEFORE the "Saul" episode airing this past Monday...the episode that makes all of this pretty obvious. It was kinda a BUMMER, to be honest. But hey, they still don't give a FULL scientific explanation of everything, so now you know the actual science behind it all!

    I don’t see why there’s a point in making this video. Anyone who’s watched the first three seasons and has common sense knows that Chuck’s “allergy” is all in his head.

        Seems more like a phobia than an actual condition.

          The show made this very clear in the first few episodes. Also I hate you.

                    MatPat, you think 182 pages is much? The notes that James Madison took during the first and second Constitutional Convention were over 600 pages collectively!

                        Finished Season 4 and came across this video and I have no idea why it even exists. I mean the show itselfs reveals that it's a mental disorder and isn't "real" He wasn't faking it

                          Chuck is sick, but with mental illness, not an electricity allergy. He has a strong delusion that he's allergic to electricity because he can't emotionally cope with his wife being gone or whatever

                                I LOVE the pacing of BCS. I love slow pacing and both BB and BCS excel at this. There needs to be more shows like this.

                                    Wasn't this just very obvious? Why in hell would anybody torment themselves through a 182 page long science crap, just to realize this? Maybe you did all this work to add evidence for your statement, but it felt like you thought the nocebo thing was a tremendous realization, the way you put it. He even discussed the possibility of being mad in the serie. No way on earth could make the whole electric allergy up. Props to you guys for putting in all this effort, but what a waste of time!

                                          It was obvious that this was in his head even way before the end of the first season, anyone who pays attention to the show would know that. You don't need a 15 minute video to say something that most people knew from the very start.

                                              To chuck it was real but in reality it was all in his head as saul proved in court when he had a pickpocket plant a fully charged battery in chucks pocket.

                                                but chuck wrestles with the idea that the EHS could totally be in his head which points to bigger psych issues.

                                                      Hahaha. That intro was 100% better than El Camino.

                                                      Wait: BCS has low ratings? I love BCS.

                                                        Not going to talk about how he probably committed suicide. Ight

                                                          Honestly I enjoyed Better Call Saul just as much as Breaking Bad. Actually I enjoyed it more only because of the drumstick scene.

The show clearly shows that Chuck is suffering from a mental illness. And anyone couldn’t tell that by simply watching the show, which matt obviously didn’t do, they may be mentally ill themselves
