Given there is still half a season to go, to send off Volkoff to prison without a fight (or some other kind of twist) would be unfair to say the least. With …Read On »

The Cat Squad.” The set-up is a simple – Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) doesn’t have anyone she can invite to her and Chuck’s (Zachary Levi) engagement party, so he does a little digging and finds out she was part of a CIA super-group of sexy spies …Read On »
On CHUCK, the spy comedy/adventure/romance series now in its fourth season on NBC (and airing Monday nights), Zachary Levi’s title character, a relatively novice secret agent who still works at the Buy More, has finally proposed to his dream woman/spy mentor/partner Sarah Walker, played by Australian actress Yvonne Strahovski. As Chuck has been pining for Sarah since Season One, and they’ve gotten together and broken apart a number of times, what does this new turn of events mean for the couple? Strahovski gives us her views on this and other developments. ASSIGNMENT X: Chuck and Sarah are now engaged, but …Read On »

The Seduction Impossible” episode of CHUCK. Consider this a nice little treat for die-hard CHUCK fans. After a first half of the season showcasing the Big Bad villain …Read On »
It’s no surprise to CHUCK fans that “Vs. The Push Mix” would have served as some sort of series finale if the show didn’t get picked up for its back nine episodes for Season Four.
Of course, the show did get its full season pick-up, so now “Vs. The Push Mix” serves as an excellent half season finale – wrapping up tons of subplots and setting the stage for the second part of this season which looks like it might be about, “we need a Big Bad.”
One of the things that has made CHUCK such a great series throughout its four season run, is the quality of guest actors that have popped up for one-shots and multi-arcs.
From Chevy Chase to Brandon Routh, CHUCK is a show that gives people a chance to show a different side within a quirky TV show that feels like an expansive action movie every week.
Come on CHUCK fans, we all knew that there was no way Chuck (Zachary Levi) was going to be able propose to Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) without some complications.
Of course, that’s the pleasure of “Vs. The Balcony” a light and fun episode detailing some routine spy stuff in France accompanied by Chuck’s constantly foiled attempts to propose to Sarah.
Rapunzel let down her hair, finally (and in 3-D) as Disney held the World Premiere of their new animated film TANGLED at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, California. It was a long backdrop that was painted to look like Rapunzel’s hair. Wigs were handed out to some of the photographers, myself included and we wore them while shooting. Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (Flynn Rider) posed with us as the photographers on the carpet shot our photos. It was fun, except that the long wig kept catching on everything! Walking the carpet were the stars of the film, …Read On »
For the geeks like myself who love CHUCK, “Vs. The Leftovers” was filled with the kind of pop culture chocolatey goodness that you couldn’t help smiling throughout while watching. First off, you get Linda Hamilton as Mom Bartowski saving the life of Chuck (Zachary Levi) and then saying the infamous TERMINATOR line “Come with me if you want to live.”
The last thing I would ever call CHUCK’s super-hot spy Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) is “the giant blonde she-male.” Yet, that becomes one of the funnier running gags on “Vs. Phase 3,” an episode where Chuck (Zachary Levi) is fighting for his life and the loss of brain cells in Thailand as villain Adelbert De Smet (Richard Chamberlain) goes digging in his brain for the Intersect.
