Just wondering do you think Morgan will ever learn more then the little gun training he had in the last season with Casey. I know Morgan is the guy that brings in the humour for most of the episodes but don't you think it would be cool if he would do more then that in the episodes.PS I am writing this is before the episode airs so as far as I know they might show morgan training with casey since sarah and chuck are going to be in Milan in this episode but if not what do you think.
FYI, if you comment in here prior to the podcast coming out, I will just delete it. Post your comments in CYT42 thread or somewhere else. This, right now, is for QUESTIONS that will make the CYT43 podcast.
Any chance of seeing Chuck or Sarah going balistic over thinking the other is dead? We have seen Sarah react sad to thinking Chuck is dead but never seen Chuck freak out over thinking Sarah died.Hennie
Now that chuck and Morgan have reputations as master spies will they get any code names apart from the Carmichael brothers, maybe the grey ghosts.
Is there a chance of Chuck being kidnapped this season, possibly as leverage against his mom?
Do you think Jeff Zucker leaving NBC will have any effect on Chuck's renewal prospects?-Morgan's Beard
Any words on whether Katrina is coming back or not?Thanks, Megan
Do you think NBC presentation as chuck being an asset to comcast increases the likelihood of a renewal, also since the WB has invested in a billboard for chuck (I hear they only put these billboards up for long running shows) does that suggest that they have faith that chuck may not get cancelled anytime soon?
How will Jeff and Lester and Big Mike react to the new and improved Buy More and will the Buy More react to them? Also, Who will be the manager of th store, Big Mike or General Beckman?
Assuming "The Frost Queen" story is a metaphor or foreshadowing of things to come this season, can you say anything about how that arc is panning out and also, will there be any more parallels between Mama B and Sarah?-Courtney
In the upcoming fight between Chuck and Sarah will both sides be represented equaly or will it be more one-sided?
Has the CIA been quietly looking for Mama B just like they were for Orion?
Will tunnel vision overcome Chuck during his search for his mother, perhaps putting a strain on all of his interpersonal relationships?
Will Mama B's motivations be suspect through the whole season so we're left guessing or will it unfold in a manner in which once we know everything there is no question as to whose side she's on?
Will Mary have the same reservations Stephen did about Chuck being a spy? Will she be supportive of his relationship with Sarah?
Will Casey go to Chuck or anyone else for advice on how to bond with his daughter.
How accurate is spoilertv.com cancellation table, because chuck got the same demo rating as undercovers but chuck is labelled as in danger but undercovers which cost more and was promoted more and is deemed looking safe? I do not get the logic there. What kind of ratings does chuck need to get in order for more episodes a 2.5 or higher?
Out of everything you know that's coming up, what storyline do you feel will be the weakest? From what you know does it feel like the new writers have a good handle on the characters?
Alot of people say Morgan was season 3's MVP. As of right now who do you think they will be saying that about in regards to season 4? Also what character do you think will be the most under utilized?
I read on fanforum your post about upcomming season, where you said that you're excited for what is comming for Sarah character + we'll see the most character development from Sarah and Morgan this year. Can you elaborate a little on that?
Will we ever see Chuck get properly injured during a mission? We've already seen Sarah in the hospital and Casey been shot.
twitter: @cameron0114I think most of the 'shippers' are pretty happy with the current status of C/S relationship : BUT: can you tell us what will be the next - or most significant event that will affect them [ either good or bad ]
Is the show ever going to address Casey and his ex fiance?
Last question :You wrote that upcomming arc this season will be amazing, but year ago you said that season 3 arc/Shaw character will be great too. So what happened last year that what looked great on paper turned to be not so great on screen + Shaw character eneded up being total lame ass and what makes you so sure that it won't happen again?
Just finished watching the episode of Chuck and was wonder first is there going to be sexy scenes of Sarah in every episode if so Thank you god you know you are thinking it to magnus and Second why was Bronson Pinchot in the episode of Chuck he was in the episode for like 5 seconds and then that was it.PS is there going to be a different Greta every episode because it seem pointless since Greta hardly does anything at all.
I´ll try again to ask about Morgan: Do you know, if he will be in every episode this season, or does he have to miss some like he had to in season 3?
Hi magnus just saw the episode and wow, what an excellent last scene between chuck and sarah, she really does love him and he loves her, great work by the actors, I actually believed it. Is this the way forward? if so then I am totally on board with this new direction.
I just like to say that first and foremost I was wrong, I never thought that the chuck and sarah relationship would be like this, I thought that the chemistry and relationship would become stale, but after these first two episodes boy was I wrong! Magnus do you know whether sarah will have reservations going forward about marriage and kids, in previous seasons it seemed like something she wanted with chuck especially versus crown vic. So it this just another plot device they use going forward?
Podcast finished recording so the last 3 questions did not make it. So here are the answers:1. I don't know if Morgan is in every episode but I imagine he is.2. This is essentially the way forward.3. I know the answer, Jim, but I should not answer that because it would take away any tension. ;)
no love for the summer glau hate.
Thanks for answering my questioni and thanks for the podcast. It was kind of messy, but still a lot of fun to listen. I simply adored the episode. Liked it a lot more than last week even. Can´t wait for the rest of the "girly" season. I hope we will get to see all the eps.Hope you will feel better soon.
I don't hate Summer Glau. I just don't see what is special about her. The only time I liked her a tad was on DOLLHOUSE. Otherwise, I just don't get the lovefest. Awelle, of course the podcast was messy... I was in massive pain for most of it and have no idea what I said, for the most part, in the final 35 minutes or so. I could have edited it so it sounded less crappy but I just wanted to get to bed and not think about it.I watched the episode over this morning and liked it more but still think that model can't act.
Hi Magnus,This was a great episode, but that ending moment did feel like a macguffin, because sarah already told casey in season 1 that she was thinking about having a familly and kids. I suppose they could play it off as her maybe thinking it but actually coming to that moment and having to follow through scares her a little, but we all know that she will go through with it because she loves her chuck. I must admit though it always suprises me that some writers can really get the best out of two actors like rafe and lauren and ali, it suprises me because it is only words on a page but still I am impressed with these two relative newbies.
They are not newbies anymore. They are the cream of the crop now.
Hi Magnus,As a person who knows the industry, do the chuck people get money for every product on display in the buymore? If they do I cannot understand why people say get rid of the buymore and buymorons, because then the show would seriously lose a lot of money, if not then I agree get rid of them, lol.
Luke, great question... and I wish you had asked that on the podcast. The answer is NO. They do not get it for EVERY product. But they do for some. And if you get rid of the Buy More, then you will lose a lot of viewers. Terribly short sighted and bad idea.
Hi Magnus,A 1.9 for yesterday, OMG, we are in trouble ! I really do hope tha something happens to create an uptick so we can see the last 11 episodes.
The only positive is that the event went from a 3.7 to 2.9 and chase went from a 2.5 to a 2.1 so ..... Well lets just see because they actually got a lot of promotion.
Ratings don't really increase on their own. And since NBC is not going to market the show, I don't think we should kid ourselves into believing the show will pick up. However, a 1.9 with no promotion is no reason to panic. We will see all 13 episodes with that rating.
I don't think greta 2 was pointless but if they are going to all be like Olivia Munn then it's but I can see your point that was my bad. I will try and write and ask hopefully better questions next time.
The real question Magnus is if undercovers drops below 2.0 Wednesday and Chase is at 2.0 or below in the next few following weeks, then what do Chucks odds look like to get a back 9 pick up if it hovers at 1.8 to 2.0 with no advertisments?HJ
Hi Magnus,I know that it can be crazy to judge a season or even a series after only 2 episodes, when chuck debuted last season and it got a 3.0 and stayed around a 2.5 until mask, do you think that mask and fake name were so bad that fans just abandoned the show and that is what is killing us now. Because the ratings dropped to a 1.9 for beard and tic tac, two very good episodes and chuck has not recovered since the shaw debacle. It seems no matter how much awesomeness that TPTB are giving us or have gven us since those episodes 3.13 onwards fans have maybe not forgiven them and are unwilling to return.
Chuck up + .1 to a 2.0... I am gonna call it now Magnus. Chuck gets a back 6 / 9 before The Event. It seems to be free falling. I think the Chase and Undercovers both get canceled.HJ
I enjoy the buymorons from seasons 1&2 but the last two seasons Lester and Jeff have went from funny to repulsive, and in my opinion are dragging the show down with their grotesque comments and actions. Chuck and Sarah are still magical and I loved the look on Sarah's face after she was tossed onto the bed. The missions were pure Chuck combining action suspense and hotness. I am glad they showed it but did not dwell on Sarah's jealously and Panic scene. I was expecting a reaction at the painc scene but totally cracked up when it happened. Before you push the no pick-up button, how many unmarketed stable shows do you see?
ChrisNice podcast! I agree with with your fellow podcasters that some scenes were just a little too mushy, I hope they keep that to a minimum. Loved the catwalk scene as well but not a big fan of the nose bleed.It reminded of that one episode from season 2 when Sarah thought Chuck blew up with the car, I couldn't get myself to feel bad for her because I couldn't take my eyes off of that dreadfuly crusted dried up blood around her nose. =)
2.0 final? Damn. OK, now I am impressed. CHUCK should be moved to Fridays so it can thrive there. Or, something that would be a last ditch effort to make it a hit, move it to Thursday nights at 10pm.Luke, I don't think the content of the episodes caused the mass exodus. Daylight savings caused the biggest problem and that general audience never returned. I think we are seeing now that without promotion, the CHUCK fandom is around 5 million and a 2.0. I think they will go wherever the show goes.HJ, I am not going to call anything... but at this point, I see no reason to not pick up the show IF it continues this number. The next few weeks will give us a clearer picture.BJ, can't agree with you there... and I am not someone who enjoys "repulsive" humor. I think some people have simply decided that it is "repulsive" humor and so they will find something "repulsive" about it. And I think if you don't market most shows, that they will drop to LONE STAR level (and mind you, that was marketed).Chris, the only scene I did not like (love'ish scene) was when Chuck and Sarah were being fired upon by the guards and Chuck sees Sarah through the crack of the door and says he loves her. Laaaame. The rest I loved. Sorry to hear about your OCD. ;)
So chuck kept steady ratings in the key demo, and NBC's other shows fell, what does this mean? If all the other shows keep falling below chuck, does this increase the liklihood of more episodes, I mean I have seen chase, the event, undercovers, outlaw and I think in the end they will all go below chucks rating of 2.0, so where does this leave NBC can they blame it all on chuck?
What fans of CHUCK have to say about other NBC shows is meaningless to me. Most of you have no objectivity. You just want everything else to fail so CHUCK looks better. That makes for very boring preaching-to-the-choir conversations. Please stop.
Hi Magnus,Looking back at this episode, I am not a romantic, so I enjoy the action and comedy and fun this show brings, but I have to say after watching every episode, I agree with what Jess said in your living dead podcast. That final scene between chuck and sarah, they look so happy and I am thinking what jess said, it is hard to understand why she kept it at arms length for so long, they are so happy, what were they thinking, what were they doing, it is crazy I know, but still! Great podcast by the way, I hope you guys keep getting your predictions wrong on the ratings though, lol.
Magnus, looking back on the comment you made about Chuck moving it's time slot to either Thursday or Friday, what do you think the likelihood of that happening is? I completely agree and am curious to see if NBC could possibly make that kind of move this early in the season.
I would say there is maybe a 10% chance right now.
Magnus... Looks like Parenthood hit Chucks numbers last night. Does Chuck prospects improve in your eyes with some of NBC's shows crumbling around Chuck? Or do they just scrap the lot of them including Chuck... Honest assesment at this point?HJ
HJ, it is just way too early in the season to guess. We need a few more weeks of ratings.
OK, I watched Undercovers tonight. It really sucks! Why on earth did they put this on the fall lineup rather than the Cape. The Cape looks awesome from what I have seen. It may be my new fanboy show if Chuck is cancelled.Honestly I think Undercovers is toast within the month. Twitterworld seems to agree with me. The writing sucks and the actors are not good. I bet its under 2.0 tomorrow. I will donate $5 to whatever you choose if I am wrong ;)HJ
No flaming, baiting, trolling, expletives, or racism allowed. And NO DISCUSSIONS of the actor's personal lives ever.
