Marvel at the Chuck Season 3 teaser poster!

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 15th 2009 9:00PM
I haven't been a regular viewer of NBC's spy spoof Chuck, but after seeing this poster, I'm wondering if I should start.

It's got everything that makes an action comedy series great: face kicking, Chuck Taylor All-Star hightops, leggy blondes with weapons, dark suits and what appears to be a secret lair underneath a set of stadium bleachers.

You can see a new video preview of the third season, which starts Sunday, January 10, 2010, by clicking here. Apparently, Chuck is going to get to do some face kicking off his own since he now has the full skills of a spy. That may or may not be a good thing, but then again it is moments like these that make TV shows so interesting.

Get ready for a brand new Chuck Bartowski

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 7th 2009 3:15PM
Fans of Chuck know that something happened to him in the season finale that is going to take the show into a whole new area: Chuck Bartowski now has the skills of a spy and not just the info stuck in his head. In this cool preview of the new season (which Vik Sahay talked about a bit in last week's podcast), we get a quick recap of what happened last season and a taste of what's to come when the show comes back on January 10.

Zachary Levi previews the new season of Chuck (and thanks fans)

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 23rd 2009 4:44PM
If you haven't heard, Chuck returns on January 10! For a while it looked like it wouldn't come back at all and then it looked like it might be a late spring return or even a - gasp! - summer run, but it's back in January (and with more eps than originally thought). Here's a sneak peek of season three featuring Zachary Levi.

NBC wants more Chuck (and so do I)

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 28th 2009 11:39PM
ChuckHey Southland fans: sorry about the cancellation and everything. But NBC has ordered more episodes of Chuck! Woo-hoo!

Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly is reporting that NBC has upped the episode order from 13 to 19. Not sure why they didn't just make it 22 (a full season), but regardless, this must mean that NBC really wants to get behind the show. Or they realized they really don't have anything else in the wings and want to please the fans they do have.

Gone Too Soon: Firefly

by Jason Hughes, posted Sep 14th 2009 11:02AM
Firefly
When I first started exploring this project, there were a few shows that I knew were going to be important to hit. This is the first of those. Firefly was Joss Whedon's sci-fi western series. The show mustered disappointing ratings in its short eleven-episode run on FOX.

Since then it's gone on to near mythic cult status. There was such an outcry of support from its loyalists, the Browncoats, over its cancellation that the producers made a feature film sequel. That movie, Serenity, answered a lot of questions about the future fate of the cast. Unfortunately, like the television series, it couldn't find quite enough people to show up and tune in to warrant a sequel. Nevertheless, the few morsels of Firefly we did get are enough to prove that this is one of the most innovative and enjoyable series ever to hit the airwaves.

Big-screen Superman suiting up to join small-screen Chuck

by Jason Hughes, posted Aug 27th 2009 6:29PM
Brandon RouthIt's not a permanent gig, but it seems like he might wish it is. According to Michael Ausiello, Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) has signed to appear on Chuck as the new leader of Operation Bartowski. This puts him in the role of mentor to Chuck, which is the good news. The bad news is he'll also be a rival for Sarah's affection.

But what does this mean for Casey? Where will he be during all of this? Why do I have to wait until March for the new season of Chuck, NBC? Hey, make me a deal. If one of your new shows tanks, or if The Jay Leno Show fails to deliver, bring back Chuck earlier. How about October. That works for me.

Why intentionally put a show on the shelf for that long, anyway? Especially if that show is still trying to grow its audience. Would it hurt you to put on some Chuck reruns once in awhile? Don't you get tired of all those Law & Order repeats all over the schedule? People love lighter fare in the summertime.

New Chuck poster unveiled

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 24th 2009 11:04AM
ChuckI haven't watched the season finale of Chuck since it aired, but didn't both Chuck and Morgan quit the Buy More? I was wondering that as I looked at this new poster for the new season. It shows Chuck in his shirt and name tag and Morgan standing in his outfit with the Buy More gang.

It's a cool poster though (here's a giant version of the pic). Looks a lot like a poster for a 70s movie. NBC has renewed the series for 13 episodes.

Jane After Dark: Firefly

by Jane Boursaw, posted May 24th 2009 7:10PM
FireflyI'm almost to the end of Firefly, my Jane After Dark readers' choice for this week. I really love this series, from the quirky characters to the general theme of a band of renegades burgling their way through the universe.

But even though it's set 500 years in the future, Firefly isn't your typical sci-fi space series that includes all manner of aliens and weird creatures. They're on a spaceship, and yet they rob trains. How cool is that?! It's like Alias Smith and Jones meets Babylon 5.

As with the other Whedon shows I've watched – Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel – the stories are fun and deep and fanciful (yes, I said fanciful), but it's the characters and their interactions that make the shows.

Hmmm ... NBC.com is calling the Chuck season finale a "series finale"

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 28th 2009 11:48AM
Chuck vs. the ringThis is probably the web site version of the swine flu, meaning PLEASE DON'T PANIC, but it seems that NBC's web site is calling last night's awesome Chuck season finale ("Chuck Me!" - there's your catch phrase, fans) a "series finale" (on the right, near "Next On").

Of course, this could just be a lack of communication between the network and the people who maintain the web site. Maybe the person writing the headlines and posting the videos and putting up the descriptions put "series" instead of "season." But since Chuck is on the bubble and fans are really anxious to see if the show will come back for a third season, any little sign of news (good or bad) is something that gets our attention.

Zachary Levi takes 600 friends to Subway

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 27th 2009 4:47PM
Back when I worked in restaurants, I think my co-workers and I would have been freaked out if 600 people showed up to eat ALL AT ONCE. I hope the people in the video below had some warning. It's Chuck himself, Zachary Levi, taking 600 fans to Subway in a campaign to help save the show (the season finale airs tonight). Not the best video in the world, but you get the idea when you watch it. Save Chuck! (thanks to reader Argus for the video!)

Sneak Peeks: this could be the last episode of Chuck ever

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 27th 2009 10:36AM
Tonight is the season finale of Chuck. Of course, you probably also realize that it could very well be the series finale of Chuck. Sure, it's a show with a big fan base, and quality-wise it's one of the best things on NBC. But that doesn't mean that NBC will realize what they have and renew. Not when they can save money with Biggest Loser: Pets or whatever show they come up with to put on Monday nights. Here's a sneak peek of tonight's season finale.

Here's how you can help save Chuck

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 20th 2009 1:02PM
ChuckChuck airs on NBC tonight at 8, and the season finale airs next Monday night. It's actually in danger of being canceled. But a major campaign has started to get the show renewed, and this time TV critics are getting behind it too.

Alan Sepinwall has written an open letter to NBC not just pleading with them to renew the show but also giving logical, business reasons to renew it (product integration, a good show for recession escapism, etc). He calls the show the best thing on NBC right now. Not sure if I exactly agree with that (I love 30 Rock too), but it's certainly one of the top 10 shows on TV right now.

Chuck season finale will be satisfying (even if there's no third season)

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 2nd 2009 9:22AM
ChuckChuck is one of my favorite shows on TV right now. It's so ridiculously entertaining that I haven't even thought for a second that it might not be renewed for a third season. But that's a possibility.

Co-creator and producer Josh Schwartz tells Sci-Fi Wire that even if the show is not picked up for another season, the season finale will be very satisfying for fans but at the same time will be a "game changer." Schwartz says the finale (and they are considering this a finale, because they don't know if they're going to be renewed or not) will launch the show in a new direction. It's actually the finale that they've been planning to do since the first episode.

Tricia Helfer and other hot chicks coming to Chuck

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 21st 2008 5:11PM
Tricia HelferNBC's Chuck is about to get an added dash of sexy to go along with the unbelievable level of sexy that already exists on the show. I'm talking about Yvonne Strahovski, not Adam Baldwin.

Battlestar Galactica favorite Tricia Helfer will guest star in this season's 18th episode as a spy who is assigned to Chuck. No, she isn't replacing Strahovski, this is only a one-episode thing (though I bet the door will be left open for her to come back). I'm guessing there is going to be some tension between both female agents when it comes to helping Chuck.

Chuck - VIDEO - Comic-Con Report

by Keith McDuffee, posted Jul 28th 2008 11:30PM
chuck panel
There are only so many hours of television I can fit in a day, so I'm picky and particular about what I watch. Chuck is one of those shows that I watched early last season, I liked it, but for reasons I can't think of, it didn't make the cut. Seeing as it was good enough and is clearly popular enough to have a second season, with the first season DVDs out in a couple of months, I may have to do some catching up and find a way to fit it in.

This session was great for fans of the show, as the first five minutes or so were filled with a video montage of scenes from next season. I'll describe some of those scenes in my summary below, but I'll start them off with SPOILER in case you don't want to know.
