Exclusive Interview: CHUCK co-creator Chris Fedak and co-star Joshua Gomez on the final season – Part 1
NBC’s CHUCK, now in its fifth season in its new timeslot on Fridays at 8 PM, is the brainchild of creators/executive producers Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz. The title character, played by Zachary Levi, started out as a nerdy employee at the Buy More who was transformed into an inexperienced super spy when his brain became filled with the Intersect, a wealth of espionage knowledge that also (at the end of Season Two) included fighting skills. Over the years, Chuck fell in love with and finally married his spy handler Sarah, played by Yvonne Strahovski, and befriended grumpy fellow spy […]Read On »COMMENTS (1)

The actress is actually a free spirit, and a self-proclaimed Hippie with a quick smile and fantastic sense of humor. ASSIGNMENT X was lucky enough to get the chance to talk to Hamilton this week […]Read On »COMMENTS (5)

The Family Volkoff” is the final straw. Just be rehashing these familiar themes, it comes off as incredibly annoying as it runs this familiar back and forth into the ground.

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.”COMMENTS (0)
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.COMMENTS (1)
