I have been answering fan questions on the podcast but have also received questions from other adventurous places around the Internet and figured I would put them here. Some of the names have been changed to protect the guilty.
HERE WE GO! Oh wait... DR stands for DARTH RAZORBACK and not "doctor." Some people were confused back in the day. Oh and.... SPOILER WARNING! Also, please do not copy and paste this on another site. Just link to this blog. Thanks.

DR, I love everything you do and want to have your babies [I may have also edited some of these to make it seem like people love me more than they do]! My question is this: what is the chance of a back-6 or back-9 for CHUCK season 4? Also, what do you or your insiders think is the chance of a 5th season? Thanks. Please bless me, lord DR. -- Obi-Wan Shenobi
My insiders have indicated that while a back six is more likely, that a back nine is still possible. Personally, I think a back 33 should happen so the show can get to 100 episodes. But that is just me. As for a 5th season, I think that is unlikely. But anything can change in the next few months. May the dark Force be with you my apprentice.
Dear DR, I am digging season 4 and everything but I don't get why the show won't bring the sexy sex back. They could show Chuck and Jill having sex, or starting to, in season 2, but now Chuck and Sarah, who are full blown in lovezies, are hell bent on a snuggle fest. What gives? Are they afraid of showing people in love doing the nasty? Is puritanical idiocy infecting the show? Are the show runners asleep at the wheel? I think they are sucking up the chemistry between Chuck and Sarah by never having them do much more than bunny kiss and cuddle. What say you? -- Air Duct Ninja
I brought this up on the podcast before they put Chuck and Sarah together... people in love, who are in a relationship, are difficult to make/keep sexy hot on television. This is one of the reasons why TV executives fear putting their romantic leads together. You can't have them making hot love every week, but you can keep the hunger for hot love going forever if you keep them apart. Granted, this show COULD do it. But they seem to not want to... and this is not just conjecture on my part. My SSFI ninjas tell me that some of the kissing and bed scenes have been shot hot and heavy but then edited down to safe and sweet.
I have actually read where fans think Zac and Yvonne don't like each other and that is why their chemistry is not as explosive as it used to be... but the actors are still giving it their all and putting passion into their scenes when the script calls for it. It is the show runners who have purposely edited some hotness out, starting with 3.12. And the scripts for season 4 have been pretty tame, so the actors are not going to suddenly start making out like crazed love tigers when the script calls for a tender kiss. So, ask Fedak or Schwartz why they are doing that. Perhaps Josh is taking all the hot scenes and giving it to his other show.
First, will you marry me? Second, I know the show runners have said they learned their lesson and won't be putting anyone between Chuck and Sarah but they haven't said whether or not they will be splitting them up at any point. So, can you tell us if they are planning a split-up this season? There is an episode called "First Fight" that has me worried. Thanks and I love you, dark lord of the Sith. -- Pining Woods
First, maybe... send pics. Second, yes. It is coming following "First Fight." Though, it doesn't happen until the following episode "Fear of Death." So, you get a lot of Chuck and Sarah together episodes until then. Enjoy it while it lasts!
Will we see any of our favorite characters like Carina or Sarah's dad return this season? -- Someone Who Doesn't Listen to the Podcast
If you listened to the podcast you would know the answer to this. Why do I put in all that effort if you can't even make an effort to listen?! WHY?!?!?!?! Anyway, not that I know of... but I would love to see them return. Maybe if there is a back six/nine. May the Schwartz be with you.
I sometimes see you tweet "Pancakes!" Does it have any secret meaning other than being a reference to "Dream Job"? -- Clueless Poopsicle
It has several meanings, actually. There is an insider meaning that I cannot share. There is a pancake meaning... which is a love for pancakes. And then there is the Metallica reference... and you should only click on that link if you like dirty, dirty words and metal. May the Cliff Burton be with you.
You said this season is going to be epic and that it will "go down in history!" But so far it isn't blowing me away. Is there something coming down the line that made you say that or were you just hyping it to get people excited? -- Doucheaholic
I am digging this season. Sure, it is not superduperawesome but that is mostly because the budget is TINY. You have to appreciate what they are delivering on a budget that couldn't deliver 30 minutes for some cable shows! On that level alone, this season should go down in history... HISTORY. But there is stuff they are doing this season that I think is pretty daring. Though, on paper a lot of this can sound better than is delivered. Plus, things I heard about prior to the season starting, or episodes being shot, have been changed. Sometimes that happens due to budget and sometimes because someone in a position of power decides to change things.
Dear DR, will there be a Chuckfest 2? If so, when and how much will it cost? -- Chuckaholic12
Looks like it. It will be awesome. It should be announced very, very, very soon. Donations will go to Zac's charity of choice. It will happen next month. Tickets will go for a few bills (remember, this is for CHARITY). I think it will be better than the last one... and the first Chuckfest was great.
Dear DR, will I be showing up again in an episode this season? I know you liked my role in the premiere. -- Chuck's Hairy Chest
Yes. You do appear.... in a scene where the new Greta shaves you off! Hah! Finally a Greta gets to do something important. OK, that second part may not be true.
Dear DR, will Timothy Dalton have a mustache like in Hot Fuzz? -- Sarah's Hairy Chest
Great question! It is kind of a sheepish... trucker style... thing.
DR, in a recent interview, Sarah and Ryan said that Ellie and Awesome will be showing Sarah what a normal life is like. Can you tell us more about that? Does that mean that Ellie and Sarah will have scenes where they develop a relationship and become friends? Will Sarah be taking advice from Ellie? Thanks! -- D'ole Fart
That is a really interesting question, one that requires a pretty involved response. No.
Kristin D Santos just posted another one of those "someone will get engaged" things on her site and Chuck and Sarah are not on it! I guess that rules them out this season. Why would the show runners not give us at least that, since the show might not even make it past these 13 episodes? -- Pop Rocks
If I had a million dollars for all the things I know about CHUCK that Kristin doesn't... I probably wouldn't be wasting my time answering questions on this blog. I would be watching my bunny sniff cocaine off a hooker's arse on my frakin' yacht! I mean, come on! I could sail the seven seas with a boatload of Perfect 10 models! Woohoo! I am the lizard king! I can do ANYTHING!
Wait... what was the question?
