"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

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.

Pilot Inspektor: CBS' "Smith"

I may just have to change my original "What I'll Be Watching This Fall" post, as I sat down and finally watched CBS' new crime drama Smith this weekend. (What? It's taken me a long time to make my way through the stack of pilot DVDs.) While it's on following Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars on Tuesday nights (10 pm ET/PT, to be exact), I'm going to be sure to leave enough room on my TiVo to make sure that I catch this compelling, amoral drama. While one can't help but be impressed by what might just be the most marquee-friendly cast in primetime--Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen, Jonny Lee Miller, Amy Smart, Simon Baker, and Franky G all star and Shohreh Aghdashloo has a recurring role--the pilot's premise alone earned major points in my book: it's a crime drama from the point of view of the criminals, who engage in high-stakes heists. But don't be alarmed; it's nothing like NBC's short-lived Heist . Instead, think of it as The Italian

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous season

The Daily Beast: "How The Killing Went Wrong"

While the uproar over the U.S. version of The Killing has quieted, the show is still a pale imitation of the Danish series on which it is based. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, "How The Killing Went Wrong," in which I look at how The Killing has handled itself during its second season, and compare it to the stunning and electrifying original Danish series, Forbrydelsen , on which it is based. (I recently watched all 20 episodes of Forbrydelsen over a few evenings.) The original is a mind-blowing and gut-wrenching work of genius. It’s not necessary to rehash the anger that followed in the wake of the conclusion last June of the first season of AMC’s mystery drama The Killing, based on Søren Sveistrup’s landmark Danish show Forbrydelsen, which follows the murder of a schoolgirl and its impact on the people whose lives the investigation touches upon. What followed were irate reviews, burnished with the “burning intensity of 10,000 white-hot suns
