The Birth of a Superhero: Televisionary Talks to Zachary Levi of NBCs "Chuck"

While the holidays might be over now, there's at least something to look forward to with the return of several television series over the next few weeks. Not to mention the much anticipated arrival of Season Three of NBC's Chuck (my advance review of which can be read here).

I had the opportunity to visit the set of Chuck back in the fall, when the start of Season Three seemed uncertain (remember when we weren't going to get any Chuck until March?), and had the chance to sit down with the cast for a series of video interviews. (You can view my interview with Yvonne Strahovski here.)

Given that the holidays have just wrapped, I'm giving Chuck fans a little extra treat this year in the form of a condensed nine-minute video interview I did with Mr. Chuck Bartowski himself, Zachary Levi.

Watch as I sit down with Zachary Levi on the series' courtyard set to talk about what's coming up on Season Three of Chuck, the eleventh hour renewal, Chuck's relationship with Sarah, the new Intersect 2.0, the birth of a superhero, and more.



Season Three of Chuck launches January 10th at 9 pm ET/PT with a two-hour premiere before moving to its regular timeslot Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on January 11th.

Thanks Jace! The new Intersect will be a showcase vehicle for Zach on all fronts. The true measure of his acting range will be unleashed!

Less than 2 weeks to go now. WooT!

Happy New Years to you!

Another great nugget Jace, thanks!

I just love Zach's passion and warmth he has for this show and it's fans. The fact that we love a guy like Zach himself only helps to makes us love the character he plays more. What a stand up, class act he is and he deserves all the accolades, praise, and love in the world. Please make sure to let him know how much we support and root for him.

Can't wait to see how Season 3 unfolds!

Words can't express how excited I was when my favorite show got saved by us fans! It was disheartening to learn we wouldn't see any new episodes until March but when I heard it would be Jan. I couldn't believe it! For once I have something to look forward to in Jan. Can't wait to see the new Chuck! Love you and all the cast! See you Jan. 10th

Just spent New Year's Day re-watching the last few eps of Chuck... Love the interview and I adore that Levi quoted "The Little Mermaid."
Bring on Jan 11th! (Well Jan 12th for me in Australia)

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

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 .

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
