090 – Oh, Boy! & Robert Duncan McNeill Interview

Oh, boy! Chuck is renewed… Morgan has the intersect… Chuck & Sarah are married… Volkoff is now Winterbottom, and he & Vivian have given Chuck & Sarah a billion dollar wedding present… Team Bartowski now owns the Buy More and are mercenaries for hire… Yowzer! The season 4 finale, Chuck vs. the Cliffhanger, was an amazing, game-changing episode in all respects. It was intense, full of action, yet tugged at the heart-strings, and even drew some tears on the podcast! We have a lot of fun talking all about it, and reliving all our favorite moments. So many Russians… And if that's not enough, Mel had a great interview with Chuck executive producer Robert Duncan McNeill, who also directed Chuck vs. the Cliffhanger. He takes us behind the scenes of the finale, hints at season 5, and will not confirm or deny whether a certain Bartowski could be back… PLEASE NOTE: This is the last Podcast before Comic-Con San Diego in late July, as we will be taking a much needed break.

089 – Season 5 is Alive!

Season 5 is alive! Very reliable sources (Ausiello, Variety, Deadline, and others) are reporting that against all odds, NBC will be renewing Chuck for a fifth season! NBC has not yet made an official announcement, but it could come at any time, and certainly by Sunday at 2pm, when they announce their fall line-up in a conference call. Chuck is firing on all cylinders… the writers have certainly found their groove, as evidenced in the awesome "Chuck vs. the Last Details," written by Henry Alonso Myers and Kristin Newman. We have a lot of fun talking all about this episode! Let's thank Chuck's advertisers, who certainly played a big part in seeing Chuck renewed -- in addition to keeping up the #NotANielsenFamily Twitter campaign, why don't you find a way to incorporate one or more of Chuck's advertisers into your finale party, and then tell them about it! Please note: many apologies, as there was a technical issue with Gray's video this week. and much of it is out of sync.
