Will 'Chuck's' Last Six Eps Be As Good As the First Thirteen?

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 6th 2010 5:31PM
Zachary Levi in 'Chuck' - 'Chuck Vs. The American Hero'Most 'Chuck' fans know that last night's episode, 'Chuck Versus The Other Guy,' was originally designed to be the third season finale. That was, of course, before NBC surprised Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak with an order for six more episodes, bringing the total to 19.

Don't get me wrong; 'Chuck Versus The Other Guy' was one of my favorite episodes this season. So many stories advanced and got tied together, it made for a very satisfying hour.

But that's because the stories were supposed to be wrapped up. For all Fedak and Schwartz knew, this was going to be the last episode they ever did. So, did things wrap up a little too neatly last night, leaving the last six episodes as some sort of long, energy-free epilogue? I'm not sure.

'Chuck' - 'Chuck Versus The Other Guy' Recap

by Brad Trechak, posted Apr 5th 2010 11:50PM
Chuck(S03E13) This would have been an excellent season finale. In fact, had NBC stuck by their original episode order quantity for 'Chuck,' this would be the season finale. But they didn't so it isn't. We did see the storylines for this season thus far wrap up nicely with the added bonus of seeing the next logical step of the one that has been around since the first season.

The episode was particularly enjoyable. There was comedy, drama, romance and a little bit of action (although more action happened off-screen, but there was enough emotional action to more than make up for it).

Four Reasons Why 'Chuck' is an All-Time Favorite

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 5th 2010 11:06AM
ChuckOne thing that TV fans love to do is create their list for "My Favorite TV Shows of All-Time." Every few years I calculate mine, and for several years, the list didn't change that much.

Oh, maybe a couple of shows switched places or maybe a show dropped from number five to number eight, but for the most part the list stayed the same. That all changed a couple of years ago when I had to add both 'Mad Men' and '30 Rock' to the list. I still haven't figured out which two shows in the top ten I'll have to take off.

I'll also have to add a third show to that list, and that would be NBC's 'Chuck' (tonight at 8 on NBC). I don't know if it wedges its way into the top ten, but it's definitely top twenty. Here's why.

Sneak Peek: the Return of 'Chuck'

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 24th 2010 6:07PM
The best part of this sneak peek at what's coming up on 'Chuck' this Monday (oh, I can't wait until the Olympics are over) is the font and special effects they use in the beginning. I'm pretty sure that's a nod to the Superman movies and the fact that both Brandon Routh and Kristin Kreuk are in the 'Chuck' cast.

It looks like everything that could possibly happen on 'Chuck' is going to happen in the new episodes, and it all looks fun.

Watch for 'Chuck' to Get Very Dramatic

by Brad Trechak, posted Feb 6th 2010 2:30PM
ChuckThere is only one more episode of 'Chuck' before NBC puts on the brakes in order to broadcast the Winter Olympics. For those in need of their 'Chuck' fix early, USA Today and co-creator Josh Schwartz has put up a clip from Monday's episode in which Chuck and Sarah argue about... stuff. I would have probably noticed the content of the discussion more if Yvonne Strahovski wasn't changing her clothes throughout the entire conversation. An interview with Schwartz follows the clip.

'Chuck' has been very enjoyable this season with the episode guest-starring 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin being the highlight. Even Kristen Kreuk, who was way too whiny as Lana on 'Smallville', has been cute as a button during her run on this show. It was a concern when Chuck got the new intersect at the end of the last season that the show would be less interesting to watch. Thankfully that hasn't been the case. 'Chuck' returns on March 1st.

'Chuck' Season 3 Episode 3 'Chuck vs. The Angel de la Muerte' Recap

by Jane Boursaw, posted Jan 12th 2010 1:33AM
Chuck: Chuck vs. The Angel de la MuerteWhat happened on this week's 'Chuck' season 3 episode 3, 'Chuck vs. The Angel de la Muerte' -- in 100 words or less.

Yes, there was a case in tonight's episode, and yes, Awesome got a piece of the spy action, but the relationships took center stage.

While protecting a foreign dictator at a black-tie dinner, Ellie grilled Sarah about her feelings for Chuck, while Awesome did the same with Chuck. The non-lovebirds say it's just business, but of course, we know it's just a matter of time.

Chuck season three -- An early look

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 7th 2010 1:02PM
This Sunday night, Chuck returns to NBC for a special two-episode, two hour jump start into season three. Expect to be dazzled. NBC was good enough to send an impressive press kit for Chuck's new season, including five episodes.

For those of you who were concerned about how the show would handle the many changes promulgated by the end of last season, you can relax. While it's no spoiler to reveal that Chuck now has the fully integrated Intersect 2.0 inside his head, complete with martial arts skills and other talents (Flamenco guitar?) it's also not a surprise that having all that in his brain doesn't mean that life is any easier for a simple, Burbank IT guy.

NBC wants you to know that Chuck has action, romance, and comedy

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 23rd 2009 1:31PM
I really like this new series of promos for Chuck. It was always a show that could have been cancelled, so it's great to see NBC promoting it with new TV promos, posters, and these new web promos. If some fans haven't seen the show, they want you to know that it has Action! Romance! Comedy! The show returns on January 10.

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.

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.

'Chuck' Set Visit: Cast Talks Season 3, Guest Stars, Zach Levi Directing & More - VIDEO

by Maggie Furlong, posted Nov 5th 2009 6:00PM
Zachary Levi, 'Chuck'The set of 'Chuck' is almost as much fun as watching the show. One minute, there's a smoke machine going off in a scene -- a sure sign that the danger is about to begin -- and the next, star Zach Levi is on a break, testing out new video games in the comfort of his TV living room.

The much-anticipated third season of NBC's cult favorite show is still waiting on a premiere date, but in the meantime, you can catch up with Chuck and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski), as well as guest star Brandon Routh, who is playing Shaw, an expert on this season's nemesis organization, The Ring.

"We have a lot to look forward to -- we've raised the stakes a little bit," teases Yvonne. They've also continued their tradition of bringing in awesome guest stars like Routh, Kristin Kreuk, Angie Harmon, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin and Armand Assante, two of which will be playing love interests for Chuck and Sarah. We'll give you one guess ...

Get the behind-the-scenes scoop and find out who Casey (Adam Baldwin) will be grunting at this season, what funnyman Yvonne would love to have on the show and why Zach -- who's directing an episode this season -- says 'Chuck' is a lot like 'Cheers.'
