"Chuck": What Are Your Hopes for Season Three?

I've gotten some lovely emails, tweets, messages, and comments from Chuck-starved viewers who were overjoyed to see the lovely Yvonne Strahovski turn up on their computer monitors yesterday via the video interview I did with her on set a few weeks back.

While Season Three is still a ways off (who knows when for sure), I thought I'd take this opportunity not to rehash rumors or spin some spoilers but find out what you, the viewers, want to see in Season Three of Chuck.

So take this opportunity to offer up some predictions (no spoilers!) or creative suggestions for the upcoming storylines, romantic permutations, and diabolical scenarios facing our favorite spies next year.

Any and all thoughts encouraged as we keep up our vigil for new episodes of Chuck...

Being in fear of S3 being the last :S I would like to see Chuck and Sarah get together, preferably married!

Casey to get a boyfriend.

Chuck to come to London on a mission would actually be amazing.

Chuck vs James Bond!

Ellie and Captain Awesome have bigger roles, they are great!

More musical amazement from Jeffster!

After last year's Super Bowl promotion where the cast was singing & dancing, I've wanted a musical episode. But, now with Glee, it would look like a rip-off, I'm afraid.

So, instead, I'm thinking of a foreign mission of some sort would be fun.

Oh, and somehow more Bryce Larkin. I think I'm the only Chuck die-hard fan who actually likes Bryce.

I'd like to see whatever gets us a quality season 4.

1) Role Reversal - or as you called it the push/pull of Chuck and Sarah.

Hoping to see Chuck become a more proficient spy. Hope to Sarah open up more emotionally.

2) That the 13 Episode arc runs unchanged due to the additional episode order.

3) Treat the 6 additional episodes as a 3.5 mini-season and have Team B. go abroad on an international mission.

I go along with OldDarth. Instead though the additional 6 could involve some Papa and Mama Bartowski reunion with more Ellie involvement

Chuck by far is the best show on TV and thanks for the opportunity Jace to talk about season 3. I am looking forward to quite a few things (in no particular order):

• More Jeffster! for sure, how funny would it be for them to be recruited by Team Bartowski to help them with something. Comic genius!
• The potential butting of heads between Casey and Shaw. I wonder how Sugar Bear is going to feel about the new man on the team.
• Captain Awesome involved in the spy world. He’s only going to make missions, well, more Awesome! (pun intended)
• Big Mike and Morgan taking back control of the Buymoria.
• I would love to see Anna brought into the spy world.
• Hopefully a run in with Harry Tang while Morgan and Anna are in Hawaii.
• Finding out just exactly what The Ring’s purpose is and how they differ from Fulcrum.
• Intersect 2.0 and how Chuck handle’s being “Neo” in a sense.
• Chuck and Devon’s struggles with keeping Ellie shielded from the spy world.
• Hoping for more Scott Bakula (Orion), John Laroquette (Roan Montgomery), Mini Anden (Carina), Gary Cole (Jack Burton), Jordana Brewster (Jill Roberts), and pretty, pretty please…..more Matt Bomer (Bryce Larkin), I mean come on, the dude can’t really be dead, right?
• Would somebody please get the fabulous Ali Adler a cameo!!!! She’s an absolute rock star for this show having written some of the best episodes of the series, and although all the love for Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz is well deserved, Ali needs to be given huge props for all she does. (FYI all you “Charah” shippers, you have no greater ally then Ms. Adler)
• Chuck and Sarah to organically embrace that “love” as Yvonne was talking about, and the emotional and heartfelt continuous journey they are taking to get there. They are hands down the best TV couple on the air right now.
• Beckman in action! It was great to see her get out from behind the desk last season in “Chuck vs. The Predator” and I look forward to more of her presence with Team Bartowski this season.

And last, but not least, a season 4 pick-up announcement next summer! Season 3 is going to be one heck of fun ride and I can’t frakkin’ wait!!!!

More Scott Bakula. I thought bringing him in added a great dynamic to the show.

I'm not sure there's anything else in particular I'd like to see. I know they're going to keep adding obstacles to Chuck and Sarah's relationship, but I'm tired of the rotating couplings that only last 2 or 3 episodes. Bring in someone for longer, make them actually a threat to the couple.

I'm excited to see what the story is behind The Ring and what their relationship is to Fulcrum and the rest of the government organizations. Also ready to see the role Awesome plays, now that someone in Chuck's inner circle finally knows the truth (or some version of it). Hopefully it'll keep Ellie from worrying so much. And I'd like to continue to see more back story from Sarah and Casey. Those are always some interesting episodes.

But more than anything - just bring the show back asap.

I want a season of Thrilling episodes, and since it is Season Three, Triple the amazingness of the last 2 seasons

>Team Bartowski taking on an international mission.

>Let Chuck and Sarah's relationship develop organically; they're both spies now, not asset and handler.

>Bring back Jack Burton and Steve Bartowski. Bring on Mama Bartowski and Mama Casey? May I suggest casting Sela Ward and Gena Rowlands, accordingly?

>More Ali Adler scripts!

>Give Ellie more to do; take advantage of Awesome's involvement in the spy world and maximize the comedic aspect of it (McPartlin was great doing that freak-out scene when Ellie questioned him about Chuck's whereabouts in the "Colonel" episode)

>Don't drag out the Ring mystery too long; unveil/explain it

I'd honestly like to see a kind of transition for Chuck sort of like Jamie lee Curtis in True Lies.

I agree with the whole bringing in more family members to flesh out the leads.I also think these should be the role reversal aspect to it.A lot of the content and info I've read hinted at there being a few new obstacles and people brought in to shake up Chuck and Sarah's relationship,but why not make Sarah the "damsel in distress" and have Chuck to the be the one that comes in guns blazing and save her?

Oh and some may not agree but I think Bryce should return,and he should be teamed with Chuck (come on I may not be a Trekkie but I really liked the talking in Klingon back and forth at the end of Nemesis!)

I really enjoyed the Orion/Chuck's dad arc, so I hope they bring back Chuck's mother for a similar multi-episode story arc. It would be very interesting if Chuck's mother was a CIA agent and his father's handler to begin with.

I would also like to see more serialized storylines, and not so much romance/love triangles. Sometimes the soap opera storylines are too boring for me.

I would not mind to see more of Sarah's father, perhaps as a prisoner of the Ring to force Sarah to cooperate.

Finally, is it possible to bring back Harry Tang as an ally for Chuck? He believes Chuck is a spy.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t
