Vik Sahay and Zach Levi in ChuckHappy pre-Thanksgiving! Before you dive into the feast and football, dig in for some Chuck talk first. Vik Sahay, who plays Lester Patel on the NBC geek hit, joins me, Jason Hughes and Kona Gallagher to talk about the show's new season, which starts on January 10. Here's a hint about the season: Jeffster is mentioned a few times during the interview.

Before and after the interview, the three of us talk about:

  • Why Mondays, especially at 8, is such a brutal timeslot,
  • Oprah's "retirement" and if she'll ever have that same kind of platform again,
  • Our picks for the week, and more.

Run time is 1:15:52.

I hope this winds up on google when someone wants to see a great TV show. It's CHUCK!!!! It's a sitcom that has everything; action, adventure, romance, comedy, you name it; and CHUCK has got it. I can't wait for third season to start. At the end of season two, Chuck loads the intersect back into his brain. He then knocks out about eight spies who are about to shoot him and Sarah Walker and John Casey. Chuck takes them all out singlehandedly as he's now a master of Kung Fu. It now seems that the reins holding back Chuck Bartowski is off. I only hope now when they go on their secret spy missions that they take a plane as the Buy More was limiting writiers to the Los Angeles area. If they get a plane and go overnight on secret spy missions around the world, he terrorists and counter spies and Fulcrum better beware. Also I want to see two face traitor Emmitt Milbarge get his due after he set up Big Mike and took away his job as head manager. I also hope we see Morgan back at the show. Devon, captain awesome knows Chuck secret but I also think they ought to finally include Morgan in on the secret. Also Jeff and Lester need to play more musical numbers in order to take away ratings from American Idol nerds.

Great stuff but why didn't you let Vik answer the Subway question at the end? I don't think it was rhetorical.

Love Vik's interview, he is so adorably charming - the anti-Lester, if you will. And still, I need my Lester fix...counting down the days 'til January!
