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.

As usual, the music at the beginning and end of the podcast is "Life" by Justin Trawick; we discuss how we found this music at the top of the 'cast.

Vik Sahay and Zach Levi of ChuckOn Tuesday, we're going to be recording our weekly podcast. In honor of the return of NBC's Chuck on January 10, we're going to have Vik Sahay, who plays Buy More cog Lester Patel, on board to talk about the show's return and what fans can expect.

Last season ended with a bang, as most fans already know. Not to spoil anything, but the finale ended with Chuck saying the famous line from The Matrix, "I know kung fu." And, boy, does he ever. Sahay will be able to give us some insight into what's in store for the Buy More crew now that Chuck is going in a new and even more adventurous direction.

Have questions about for Vik about Chuck or anything else? Leave them in the comments and we'll relay them to Sahay during the podcast. We'll even give you credit for any question we use. So, ask away below. Any question we get in before we record the podcast tomorrow (time TBD right now) will be eligible.
