  1. Great work, now I'm gonna be on that page forever thanks to that gif... :)

    Got a question though. Will Chuck tell Elli in the near future that he's still a spy?

  2. Sorry, I can't answer any questions... I am busy watching that animation.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Please Magnus any hot scene between Chuck and Sarah?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I wonder who Sarah will be fighting, zondra or Amy, whoever it is I reckon they are fighting because Sarah stole Bryce from one of them :)
    And btw nice animation.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Look at that gif! Does it get any HOTTER?!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Of course it's hot Magnus even if i'm not gay everything about Sarah is hot but i meant hot kisses or more.... ;)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I don't know. I am doubting we will see a hot kiss all season but... maybe they surprise us.

    ReplyDelete
  8. If Corina & Morgan are in bed together It's not going to set well if Alex found out Plus He's going to deal have to with Casey's Fury.

    ReplyDelete
  9. there will be any episode about governer?? I am wondering

    ReplyDelete
  10. That's the best animation I've ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  11. First off, that is the HOTTEST they've made Sarah look in a long, Long, LONG time.

    Second @angelpoo12, the teaser didn't say that Morgan and Carina are in bed together, only that Carina is in Morgan's bed. I expect a scene where Carina surprises Morgan and he tries to shoo her out of the house before Alex sees her.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Are you having a place to ask for spoilers/teasers for your next pod cast?

    ReplyDelete
  13. That gif is mesmerizing. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Is there any chance that Morgan will end up handcuffing Carina to the bed and leaving her there? You know, like she did to Casey back in season 1. I don't find that character even remotely likable, and she should be punished for trying to destroy Morgan and Alex's relationship.

  15. Wow. Clicked on the source of SARAH and well, I saw the comment: "Thank you Yvonne for making me question my heterosexuality". And you know what I couldn't agree more with that statement. That is freakin pure hotness.

    -Never

    ReplyDelete
  16. Gee, thanks, Magnus...there goes a good 5 minutes that I could have spent on productive activities, shot to hell because of that wonderful GIF you put up...God Bless you, sir! :-D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ratings ruined my super happy mood. I need more spoilers to cheer me up :(

    ReplyDelete
  18. (drool) still looking at the GIF.

    I might just have fallen in love.

    -Never

  19. Tom says....

    This just in:

    "TVLine | What happens to Mama B now?
    FEDAK | She’s still part of the show.
    SCHWARTZ | And you haven’t seen the last of Volkoff either.

    TVLine | Really? Will they be a major presence in the final 11?
    FEDAK | They’ll both be in multi-episode arcs."

    http://www.tvline.com/2011/02/spoiler-alert-chuck-bosses-on-volkoffs-return-a-chucksarah-wedding-and-season-5/

    Big yihaaaa!

    ReplyDelete
  20. So... now it is safe to say what that picture teaser was all about. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. So thats what you meant by Season ending differently because of back 11??

    YES!!! More Volkoff!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I can see Carina sneaking into Morgan's bed while he's not there, and then him waking up to her with a "Holy crap what are you doing here" sort of expression, and that would be priceless.

    Still mesmerized by that gif, by the way. And very safe to say what the picture teaser was all about.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Has it been out right said or implied that the Vivian character takes a romantic interest in Chuck? I've seen people talking about it but I don't know if it's spoiler or speculation.

    ReplyDelete
  24. No one with any valid sources has said Vivian is a romantic interest.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks. It gets confusing when people start getting really deep in speculation. It starts to bleed together. I should really just stay here.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Everyone should just stay here. Everything else is just speculation. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I can't totally wait to watch Chuck vs the Cat Squad!

    For the interview Ausiello talked about a LOVE triangle with Vivian and Fedak answered that will be a different thing this time...so I guess it will appear as a triangle at the beginning but then it will be just this Vivian in love for an engaged Chuck with a jealous and in Kombat Mode Sarah! So UNILATERAL LOVE for the first time!

    Btw Magnus I think SHE CAN BE HOTTER THEN THAT...Every time she gets a whole new level of hotness! XDDD

    ReplyDelete
  28. Are you more excited to see 4.14 and the belly dancing along with Roan , or 4.15 with Carina and what ever trouble she will cause ?

    ReplyDelete
  29. If Ausiello doesn't say "Vivian, the new girl in a romantic triangle" then he doesn't mean that. So, he didn't say it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Wait OK i slow. What teaser picture and what is it about.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Compared to folks on other Chuck fansites where negativity is abound, what's your thoughts on Ausiello anyway? Is he one of the uh.. 'good guys' I guess you'd say? He's always seemed to be a big fan of Chuck, at least from what I've read.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Magnus,
    First off I'm pretty new here (not to the show, just the site) and its downright fantastic.

    As straight forward as you can be, what is your sense on a season 5 pickup for Chuck? I honestly cannot make sense of it one way or another. One minute it looks like its a lock, the next it seems doomed. I know your not making the decisions at NBC (nor is this the right place for this question) but I'd really appreciate whatever you have (whether it be inside info or gut feeling) on this.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ausiello loves CHUCK and is still the loudest and most popular voice working to promote it.

    Mike G, talk to me in four weeks. Right now, it is probably 65/35 for renewal. In four weeks it might be 80% for or against renewal. We just have to see how everything else performs.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ok so with what happened last night and the official description of Cat Squad and your teasers can we use the term "Engagement Party" and not be way off base? I just see a call back to the only episode of the first 8 from last season I liked, Three Words, being appropriate here. IMO they can never fix the name reveal but they can sort of fix ignoring the ending of Three Words with this episode. Can't wait for the very sweet Sarah/Carina scene I'm fully expecting

    BTW Push Mix is top 3 for me with Phase Three and Honeymooners. The engagement scene was simply perfect. Though I would call it the best 20 minutes as the Volkoff/Chuck scene was simply fantastic. And I loved GBecks being in the doorway!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Okay so I am also slow (could be that its almost midnight) but regarding the teaser picture...its safe to say the teaser was about what?
    Laura

    ReplyDelete
  36. My guess is based on what I have heard is that the new girl is going to play on Chuck's sympathies because she is going to be "nerdy" and thrown into the spy world and Chuck will serve as her protector. It's not going to be a romance thing for Chuck, but it's going to be a "big brother" type relationship for him. Unfortunately for Chuck, I think in the end she will be similar to Chuck and end up being "her father's daughter" and side with her dad in trying to destroy our hero and heroine. I say h&h because this isn't just the "Chuck" show now, it's the "Chuck & Sarah" show... it's made the best transition from WT/WT to a full on duo of heroes in the history of television. A 5th season would be a dream. I doff my cap to the writers and producers. I never in my wildest imagination believed any TV show could surpass my holy trinity of Northern Exposure, Farscape, and BSG!

  37. NBC.com has the full ( without the credits ) version of the preview up .

    wowza !

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh man... full preview without credits... so... so.... hawt!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. stupid wheat things commercial....

    but very hot.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ok, you are really hyping the Sarah hawtness on twitter...i hope you are not overdoing it like JS did with final 10 mins :) .

    And i hope that what we saw in promo is not most of it and we actually see her using her "skills" on mission as well...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Harku, I know that I have failed you so many times that you have no faith in me... but you will see. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Magnus will we see Sarah using her "hotness" with Chuck ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your answer make me think that it's going to be very hot between Chuck and Sarah :)
    Thank you Magnus you are the best:D

    ReplyDelete
  44. Magnus, now I remember you commented how Sarah got hotter when she finally got together with Chuck in honeymooners.

    And now we have a proposal/progression and Sarah take a new step up on the ladder of hotness:)

    Is it safe to say what Fedak meant with the comparison of honeymooners and this episode is the aftermath of the new progression between Chuck and Sarah?

    /Oliver

    ReplyDelete
  45. J asks ...

    Is the belly dancing scene in their apartment a kind of make up on Sarah's part for her seducing the mark that horrified Chuck ?

    If that's the case , Sarah should seduce someone in EVERY episode if it leads to that kind of hotness . ME-OW !

    ReplyDelete
  46. J, no. Sarah isn't making up for anything. She is trying to get her way.

    ReplyDelete
  47. J says ...

    So your teaser about Chuck wanting to wait and Sarah trying to get Chuck to see things her way . This is Sarah's way to convince him ? I bet it works lol .

    ReplyDelete
  48. Magnus last time i asked you about passionate kisses between Chuck and Sarah you didn't know,now do you have some news about that or more like a bed scene? ;)
    Thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Wait - devious girlfriend/fiancee Sarah using her Feminine Wiles on Chuck to get her way?

    And we get to watch?

    Hot damn!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Haha. Yeah, I had a feeling Sarah probably wouldn't have to 'make up' for seducing her mark. Yeah, Chuck *may* be surprised by how quickly she did it, but I doubt that at this point, it'd really upset him. Then again, I could be completely wrong.

    Anyway, with her 'trying to get her way'.. I have a feeling she may want to push that wedding up, and is using that bellydancer outfit to try and change Chuck's mind. If that's the case, oh god do I hope that scene lasts more than a minute and a half. Can you tell us if it does, Magnus? >.>

    Also hoping for a real, passionate kiss at some point. Timeline wise.. I wonder how long it's been between the end of 13 and the start of 14.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Like I said, she is not making up for anything.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Well alright then. Thanks, yo.

    ReplyDelete
  53. maybe chuck saying "yeahh...." in the promo is Sarah asking if they can do whatever it is her way, then seducing him (with the shake and the look) and then he agrees.

    In vs the seduction in season 2 we had the same thing (with sarah coming into the buymore) and she is seducing him now.....?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Will Morgan face the wrath of Casey in this episode? Can we expect to see Alex demonstrate her fighting skills again?

    Popeye Doyle

    ReplyDelete
  55. So the title of the episode is dual purpose Roan Montgomery seducing his way through Morroco? and Sarah putting the moves on Chuck to get her way. So I guess if Chuck has any blood and sense left he should be saying no to what ever it is she wants.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Well... it is OK to say no to your woman... sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Pete said - "Wait - devious girlfriend/fiancee Sarah using her Feminine Wiles on Chuck to get her way?"

    Well she's only wearing what a girlfriend would wear to seduce her boyfriend. She's only protecting her cover.

    And yes, it doesn't cover a thing....

    ReplyDelete
  58. i like how little this conversation is about 4.15

    ReplyDelete
  59. You mean there's more Chuck beyond Sarah in that outfit?!?!?!?! ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  60. Pete: Nice call back to the first time they "slept" together for their cover's sake.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Sorry, I meant Paul, not Pete. Have to give credit where credit is do.

    ReplyDelete
  62. This scene better be hotter than the bikini one from Coup d'Etat (4x4) Chuck definitely missed an opportunity there. Put the book away for goodness sake.

    -Melissa

    ReplyDelete
  63. Magnus are they going to keep the engagement secret from Gen B or their family too?

    Theano

    ReplyDelete
  64. I think that the decision to wait is related to their living arrangements. Either they want to get their own place and Sarah wants him to tell Morgan right away and Chuck wants to wait till its all set or they want to ask Morgan to find his own. Sarah then uses her "special talents" to try to get her own way.

    Then the Carina incident makes Morgan realize that he needs to do it himself. That fits with the synopsis that just came out for Masquerade.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Sarah also finds out about Barstow and wants Morgan out asap! Never ever get in the way of the giant blonde shemale and her mate!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Magnus please will we see a jealous Sarah in episode 16?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I don't know but i would love to see some Jealous Sarah around this Vivian character like in episode 2 with Sofia :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. I think you are going to be disappointed.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I think Anonymous is refering to the new hottie who has joined the cast.....at which I say that chuck is a nester like snow white, he aint going anywhere and sarah knows that......

    ReplyDelete
  70. I think to all fans it bears mentioning or reminding...depending on you attention span or memory...chuck gave up HANNAH for sarah! He is and never will be going anywhere, you give up the Hannah for any girl, that girl knows she has you for life, tell them Magnus! WHAT UP!

    ReplyDelete
  71. No Magnus i can't be disapointed after all we had this season,i'm really really happy but i have to say that the only disappointment is the lack of passionate kisses but we can't have everything :).I still love the show very much.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Once Chuck gave up Hannah, that was it. There is no way to upgrade after that. Hannah to Sarah... where do you go from there? God?

    ReplyDelete
  73. The lack of passionate kisses maybe TPTB way of torturing the fans that gave them such a hard time in season 3 (I am Joking BTW)...so the lesson to a fan whether crazy or not.....never bite the hand that feeds you and complain like a panzee!

    ReplyDelete
  74. LOL. From Hannah to Sarah to God.. that had me laughing hard. Good one.

    So, the synopsis for 4x16 came out, and it didn't mention Sarah/Yvonne anywhere. Obviously she's the one character outside of Chuck/Zachary Levi that doesn't need to be spelled out that she'll be there, but I just found it a bit odd.

    ReplyDelete
  75. That's because Sarah is dead. No, wait... Chuck has broken up with her. No, wait... she is in a coma! No, wait... she is busy taking dancing lessons!

    Oh no, I remember now, she is in the episode as she normally is.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I can't wait to see a hapless Morgan being caught in the middle of a potential catfight between Carina and Alex. I wonder what Chuck will think of the situation?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Obviously. Suppose I'm just used to seeing "Yvonne Strahovski also stars"

    ReplyDelete
  78. I love how a gif can generate more comments than a podcast...that's it Magnus, give the hard work up, all we need is some hotness lol:D

    Ereptor

    ReplyDelete
  79. Yep, I should quit doing the podcast.

    ReplyDelete
  80. no. no you shouldnt! don't listen to that man!

    but.... while your at it, I'm sure there is a gif from the new eclectic promo that rivals the one here...

    ReplyDelete
  81. OMG was just on spoilertv website and they have a new promo for Chuck/Cape/Harry's Law who's theme was literally "I'm Awesome." With the 5-10 seconds for Chuck nothing new was learned about the episode itself but more footage of Sarah's belly dancing. Couldn't make out what Sarah said but did hear Chuck's high pitched stuttering reply. Talk about truth in advertising that was Awesome.

    Poor Chuck. For most men its difficult enough to win a disagreement with a woman but his has no problem doing a sexy belly dance or if Hard Salami proved anything, she can cry on cue. As if it wasn't obvious already, he will never win an argument.

    ReplyDelete
  82. OMG the new promo just upped the hotness factor...! o.O

    ReplyDelete
  83. See, at this point they will spoil all the hotness before we see it.

    Though, nothing wrong with that!!! Should put eyeballs in front of the TV.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Sarah says "Sound like fun?" Ahhhhh Yes it does!!! My god though the look in her eyes in the new promo is the hottest look she has ever had. They are so captivating there is no chance in hell she doesn't get her way.

    Yvonne has looked incredible before many many times but even disregarding the costume the way she looks at Chuck simply takes my breath away.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I´ll wager that Chuck will still win the argument. Chuck nearly always gets his way whenever they are disagreeing on personal issues.

    But I don´t really think that is a bad thing, because Sarah mostly seems happy with whatever the outcome is. (Thinking about moving in together, engagement, unpacking...)

    Usually whatever Chuck wants moves their relationship forward and while Sarah can be reluctant about those steps, she seems quite happy with the results.

    Maybe it´s different this time, though. But I could see Chuck initially agreeing with Sarah during that belly-dancing scene, only to take go back to his original position later on.

    That gif is part of Sarah trying to convince Chuck to see things her way, isn´t it?

    ReplyDelete
  86. rich says..
    I like that they are only spoiling the hotness. no plot points being given away is awesome (i suppose they could be giving away part of a plot point with the belly dancing) we get to enjoy it for a week, and not have to know what the story will be about!

    My one speculation question... mission is in Morocco, Sarah belly-dancing is in Burbank. Does it have any part in the mission, or is Sarah doing this purely to seduce him?

    ReplyDelete
  87. I am sure chuck will put up a decent arguement once the blood returns to his brain, but can we really blame him if he thinks with something other then his brain?

    ReplyDelete
  88. I have seen this suggested elsewhere and I love the idea. That Sarah's "performance" is suggested by Roan and comes at the end of the episode. Kind of a reverse Montgomery. Love that idea and Roan despite all he says about spies not falling in love seems to be a romantic at heart and recognizes how they truly feel about each other.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Come to think of it why does chuck leave his house? Why does he even leave his bedroom? Actually more importantly why does he leave his bed? Why does he just not walk around with his mind in the sky with the biggest smile on his face? I would if I were him!

    Oh wait I am a girl....whoops my tendencies came out......

    ReplyDelete
  90. rich says
    uplink... awesome. There are so many ways this could go. Arguments, Seduction, Roan seeing what has happened between Chuck and Sarah, relationship advice, and bellydancing. lots and lots of bellydancing. =D

    ReplyDelete
  91. Rita Hayworth: "Every man I knew went to bed with Gilda... and woke up with me.” As hard as it is....never confuse reality with fantasy....or you become.....CRAZY

    ReplyDelete
  92. Well that was the theme for S1 and S2. If this is about Sarah getting what she wants, it could be a tease then a shoot down (but in a funny, yet hawt, way). That is "looks like fun?" "yeah" "well not until you do XYZ" and then she walks off leaving Chuck hot and bothered.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Yeah I would kick morgan out straight away! I remember when I got engaged, you tend to ..... everywhere! Same with wedding night, honeymoon and basically the first few months of marriage. So this is a very vital time for mr bartowski, as ellie said in angel de le muerte it is so easy for the magic to wear off after marriage! So time is passing by, the little buddy has to get gone now!

    ReplyDelete
  94. Greg, if you think they are going to kick him out, then you don't know this show.

    ReplyDelete
  95. They won't kick him out. They would move out before they kick him out but I think he will ultimately leave on his own. From the description of Masquerade it looks like he will be thinking about it after the Carina incident.

    ReplyDelete
  96. You guys put way too much emphasis on things you haven't even seen yet.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Magnus I have heard all your podcasts and read most of your blogs, I am sure that you have mentioned that you have had pretty girls and we all know from your posts what you think of lame kisses.....You sound like a passionate guy.....would you not want to kick morgan out if you had a girl who was pretty and hot like sarah and you lived in chuckville? I mean chuck told morgan in beefcake that he would not move in with him but with sarah, why cannot he tell him to move out so that he can really live with sarah?

    ReplyDelete
  98. Greg, nope. I would never do that to my bro. Whenever he wanted to go, I would be supportive but I wouldn't even hint at him leaving before he was ready to go. I can make good use out of one room. :)

    ReplyDelete
  99. J says ...

    I think the synopsis of 4.16 in regards to Morgan is him pondering saying " I love you " to Alex . There is no way Morgan is going to be moving out of casa Bartowski anytime soon .

    Though it would be funny if Alex moved in with Casey , and they had a series of scenes with Morgan sneaking out of Casey's apartment . lol

    ReplyDelete
  100. I don't understand why people want to screw over Morgan just because Chuck and Sarah are engaged now. I assume he pays half the rent so that appartment is just as much his as Chuck's. Trying to get him to leave would be especially bad considering how chill he was about Chuck not even talking to him before inviting Sarah to move in. Plus Sarah has been pretty supportive of the bromance so I don't see her pushing for it anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  101. J says ...

    This Monday's episode gets 100 out of 100 no matter what in my book .

    I look forward to this weeks podcast . Just one observation though , a good 5 minutes should be spent discussing the belly dancing scene and the hotness involved . Oh , and a chuckzee cameo would be pretty cool too :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. Could be he's thiniking of asking Alex to move in..... ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  103. rich says
    Paul: sounds evil! I hated when she did that to him in 2.02. but I suppose in this case she might not be just using him

    so all you married people, what future could chuck and sarah be discussing between engagement and marriage, if not housing?

    ReplyDelete
  104. This week's podcast won't be out until Wednesday because a friend who has done a few podcasts before is going to be on, and she is on the west coast so we have to do it later. Hopefully Kevin and Mike can make it, but I haven't talked to them about it yet. So, if we have three guys on, then you know we will ONLY talk about the belly dancer scene. Otherwise, I guess we will actually talk about the episode. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  105. Hey talking of chuck and morgan living together, when you think about it morgan has kept up his side of the hot chicks walking semi naked in the apartment deal for the audience. Morgan has had carina and alex and chuck has had hannah and sarah....So morgan has every right to stay, he has filled his I am awesome and do not forget it! part in the bro code that exists in chucks apartment for viewers and the characters alike!

    Oh no! those tendencies again! I should see someone!

    ReplyDelete
  106. @rich

    most of us, I hope do not personalize the show as much as to worry about the bracelet, or if she is wearing the ring or any other mundane aspect as to constantly monopolize a blog with it. Just focus on the awesomeness they are giving us and enjoy....gee z. Chuck and Sarah aren't a normal couple so the rules really don't apply.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Hi Magnus,

    Can you or anyone please explain Gordon's Rita Hayworth Quote, first who is she? secondly what is the point of it? it seems random!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Jane, the Internet has an easy search function.

    The quote means that actors are not the characters they play.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Oh I know that! I have been on set on tv shows and see the actors get constant makeup and other touch ups while filming......so I know that what we see is a fantasy! That these actors/characters are human and do not always look like gods. I was just wondering why he decided to post that comment it is not like we do not know the reality.

    ReplyDelete
  110. Jane, if you know that, then it wasn't directed at you. Not everyone seems to know that.

    ReplyDelete
  112. It also goes to that some people put up a persona for the public world yet have a much different personality when you get them alone.

    BTW, it's a sad time when folks don't know the personalities from Hollywood's Golden Age.....

    ReplyDelete
  113. I am loving what we are hearing about the next run of episodes. Seems like they are really pushing Chuck the smart spy and hero. That is one aspect that has been under served since he got the 2.0 many times.

    Along those lines IMO they need to end the Ellie being clueless story like now. They have shown her to be a very bright woman and great at manipulating the men in her life, now its time for her to be shown that she realizes Chuck has been spying again all along. Even a blind person could read the signs, Chuck lives with and is marrying a spy. She just called another spy part of the family in Casey, she sees that Chuck got their mom back after 20 years. He leaves for days at a time WITH both Sarah and Casey, I mean come on now. Besides Devon is a terrible liar and what happened to the laptop and her father's car? Did she forget about those?
    Let's end this now and don't show her so clueless and let Chuck fulfill the family destiny please. She is a great character and would be better served if she knew and accepted Chuck's destiny. Magnus can you at least hint if that is finally going to be dealt with?

    I......uh...... who.......... what are you talking about? I don't care about the ring or the bracelet. and what mundane aspect of the show are you talking about exactly?
    All I do is enjoy this show. I also find that I enjoy it more when I get to read ideas about an upcoming awesome episode. If that is not what this blog is about then by all means, someone set me back on course

  115. Do you think NBC is not promoting Chuck on purpose ? Like if they think the show is going to get 1.7-2.0 every week it's on why waste the money it ? Less money they spend promoting it , the more profitable it is right ? It sucks though , with a promo as hot as this one I'm sure more casual viewers would tune in with a little promotion .

  116. Of course NBC is not promoting CHUCK on purpose. They promote or don't promote every show on purpose.

  117. Pooja how can Sarah best kiss be with Bryce when you just excluded a hotter kiss (salami) It is like saying that the hottest and most passionate scene would be cole and Sarah in the hotel room if not for the colonel and phase three bedroom scenes! Some people just do not know hotness!

  118. who will be watching chuck vs the seduction in preparation for tommorow night? Its an amazing episode. soo excited to have John Larroquette back.

  119. Chuck and Jill... hottest kisses. Those two kids were meant to be together!

    Or Chuck and Hannah... oh my.

    ReplyDelete
  120. :) I love when you fluster the shippers.. but yes, I agree.. the Chuck/Jill sexy scenes during the Jill Arc were DAMN hot...

    If only TPTB grace us with something similar for CS

  121. Hey Magnus,
    A while ago you said that you may be able to say more about the upcoming Sarah and Ellie scene! So is there anything more that you can say about it, for example if it will be in the next episode or not.

    Also, it is known that the wedding for CS would have been in 413 if they had not got the back order episodes, but are you allowed to say more about when the engagement was suppose to be in the original plan. If it was suppose to be before 411, then I cannot even imagine what 411 would have been about!

    Thanks once again, and thank you for making me waste countless hours watching the gif of Sarah's belly dancing!! :)

  122. cmon now. obviously shaw and sarah.

  123. I agree with you Magnus when you say Chuck and Jill "hottest kisses" but i would give anything to see Chuck and Sarah kissing like that ,i just can't get why we don't have these kisses and a hot bedroom sex scene like Chuck and Jill had,my gosh Zac and Yvonne have so much chemistry that for me it's frustrating to not using it for those kind of scenes :(

    ReplyDelete
  124. I think I know when they intended to have the original engagement but I don't know if I am allowed to say.

    ReplyDelete
  125. I do not know but schwartz said that he thought that they should do an engagement in 11 and wedding in 13 but fedak vetoed that idea.....maybe they were pulling the fans legs because right now it does not matter since the wedding will definately be this season! the website is already up! So if you guys want to see the honeymoon....nielsen families tune in!

  126. Mark, the show runners have their own version of the truth. We can call it "show runner truth."

    ReplyDelete
  127. I honestly hope they throw some good obstacles in the way for Chuck and Sarah, like the argument angst in the next episode. As they become more committed to eachother quarrels could be that much more fun. They flush out their feelings while we know that underneath they do have a rock solid relationship.
    I am really hoping we get more than just an episode of that.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Chuck and Jill were the hottest by far. They never really used the Hannah character like she really could have been used.You could also tell Chuck had a true interest and history with Jill.
    @ rich...it was just a comment, it was along the lines of people obsessing over whether they should/would kick out Morgan or things that really don't mean anything. It wasn't personal don't get offended....sorry I mentioned it.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Hannah (as much as I loved her character) was used as a device to highten the tension and add more wieght to the overall story, instead of a 3 dimensional character who added anything to the show. The romantic interests of both shaw and hannah were used as a substitution of flushing out shaws character via flashbacks. If they had a 19 or 22 episode order off the bat, hannah may never have been in the show and they would have spent 3-4 episodes showing shaw just to be the same as chuck, they may of showed a flashback to when he was at college (maybe a geek like chuck), how he met his wife (an agent like sarah) and what her death did to him, etc and that would have made his character more compelling because it would show what could happen to chuck and sarah if something goes wrong and also we could sympathise with him and because it would remove the romantic interests it would have made him a character worth routing for. But having only 13 episodes this was not possible and so hannah served a superficial purpose and was never able to have that really hot scene with chuck....ce la vie.

    @ac: no problem. I see how it was relevant to what other people were posting, but not me.

    I hope that at least Sarah has a watchful eye when Chuck is tasked to do whatever with vivian. Magnus, I want to see Sarah express some sort of nervousness or tentative jealousy when Vivian enters in 4.16. Should I get my hopes up, or should I think that Vivian is there for a completely different reason and they won't even go there (for example maybe team b knows she is volkoffs daughter right off the bat)

    ReplyDelete
  131. Why would Sarah worry about Chuck looking out for another woman? Sarah is the head cheerleader. Vivian is the head chess cluber. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  132. I think they done with the jealousy thing, at least on Sarah side.
    But I think we already see a little jealous Sarah, in the 4.02. That is realy funny
    as Magnus said , She has no reason to be jealous. And She actualy not just a girlfriend anymore, She is Chuck's fiancée.
    But I think I would love to see a " possess" Sarah. If this is make sense :S.
    if someone end up being jealous , it is Chuck LOL this is his nature.
    Even if they are going to be Married, Chuck is always going to be insecurity at some level.
    But may be not :)

    ReplyDelete
  133. rich says
    awww c'mon. think of all the jealousy from Sarah in the fat lady, which was Chuck with a super attractive brunette being really smart together.

    I have always thought that the one thing Sarah might feel insecure about herself with chuck is his raw intelligence, and him being able to connect that way with people like Jill, but not with her.

    you know you want to see Jill come back and Sarah be jealous, and at least on paper Vivian looks a lot like Jill. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  134. Rich, do I really have to explain the difference between what was going on during the Jill arc and what is going on now?

    ReplyDelete
  135. rich says
    and when I say jealous I mean something more like protective. not liking that he is taking interest on any level in people that if it wasn't for their relationship, he would like to get involved with.

    hey. I can dream! I want something like Jill again!

    ReplyDelete
  136. and no, no you don't. I completely understand. its just season 2 nostalgia.
    :)

    ReplyDelete
  137. Pray for a 5th season is all I can say. While I don't know exactly what is happening in those final four episodes, I don't see them doing any jealousy story line.

    ReplyDelete
  138. I just think those things wouldn't work very well in post-marriage chuck. When I imagine such a season 5 I see Chuck and sarah going on an awesome honeymoon, having a couple of super minor marriage issues, and just watching everyone else find their love-legs.

    In all honesty a post marriage CHUCK just doesn't make any sense to me. kinda like Frodo at the end of the lord of the rings...

    ReplyDelete
  139. Thank you Magnus. Jealousy is such an unattractive emotion and personally I don't want to see it from either of them. They are long long past that. The scenes in Suitcase were fun but that wasn't jealousy. That was more a girlfriend saying "what are you looking at, Chuck?" And lets face it Sarah is much hotter than she was.

  140. I'm pretty disappointed that Casey's role has been reduced to simply being Alex's dad. Will he get the chance to be a vital part of the team again?

    @ ZLP..
    zlp if thats evn ur name (courtesy magnus),,,, u r right some people just know hotness,cole and sarah is by far hottesst scene ever includng colonel nd phase three,,ok may be phase three a bit,,chuck and jill kisses were hottest,,nd nw that u have mentioned it, cole and sarah was the hottest hotes scene yet on the show for me atleast,,u find them c/s hot cause they are our favourate charater bt if their was a award for hottest scene it wud go to cole and sarah,,,then to phase three or colonel ,,,,as for the sarah kiss i still think sarah kissed better brice may b because they were couple or smthng bt in case of chuck in that period she wasnt even aware of her feeling for him,,there was almost a guilt factor after that,, so ya i wud still go with wht i said sarah shared better kisses with brice,,,hhuummm.................i wish it cud hav been chuck,, although he is now for her permanently,,,, god i love love stories

    ReplyDelete
  144. Pooja I would go as far as saying that you do not even recognize when a person is into a kiss or not! take out the hotness for a second and look at how sarah kisses chuck compared to the other PLI's and I mean really look closely and that will tell you all you need to know about how she feels and how he makes her feel! If you do not see if then, wow, no wonder the divorce rate in this world is 50%!

    ReplyDelete
  145. What I find amusing is that the folks who are pushing Vivian to be a LI for Chuck are likely the same ones who had a meltdown every time there was one introduced the last 3 seasons.

    -Was this supposed to be a hint/teaser? Or just a broad analogy? I couldn't tell with the winky face at the end. Also, aside from the blonde thing, I have trouble envisioning Sarah as head cheerleader of anything, but that's just me.

  147. J asks ...

    I can't remember if anyone asked this before , but your " Sarah seduces her mark " teaser is not referring to Chuck and the belly dancing scene was it ?

    ReplyDelete
  148. rich says

    J I think you could be on to something. I can totally see magnus doing that. awesome. maybe that is why Sarah isn't making up for anything with the belly dancing. because her mark is him!

  149. I read post on chucktv forum regarding your comment about 4x18 and Sarah character.

    And i was wondering, since last time you have commented about how ppl don't really understand Sarah character was during 3x12 podcast...so will we be comming back to explore this side of Sarah later on this season...the not self empowered one...even if it will be in more "digging in the past" kind of way?

    ReplyDelete
  150. Sarah "not self empowered?" I am not sure what you mean by that? Sarah is always self empowered. All I said was that I was interested to see how people react to her character. Fedak talked about the same thing in a recent interview. The way she reacts to some things is very interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  151. So this is about Sarah reacting to the normal life stuff that will come up with the wedding planning?

    I can´t wait to see that. I wonder if the deleted scene from the season 2 finale with her freaking out about Ellie´s wedding planning and coming seriously close to panicking will be an indication of how she will deal with her own wedding. I think she wanted Chuck to get Ellie back to normal, didn´t she?

    Maybe they will keep going with their gender reversal stuff and Chuck will be some kind of groomzilla. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  152. Ahem, i remember pricesly how you worded it back then in 3x12 podcast, that from all the woman in Chuck's life Sarah is the least self empowered. And then you went on about how some ppl don't understand Sarah character.

    ReplyDelete
  153. Hi I think you said in that American Hero podcast..... that sarah is not a badass chick, well she is a bad ass chick when she needs to be but that is only a side of her. Her real side is damaged and she needs a man in her life, I know people are not going to like hearing this but she is a daddy girl and she needs a daddy in her life....she needs chuck to function as more of a human (that last sentence was me).

    When I realised that this is a sarah season sort of I was kind of hoping that we would see flashbacks to what sarah was like before she met chuck, like flashbacks not to high school or when she ran cons but flashbacks to her days as langston grahaems wild card enforcer...that would be fantastic, although dark but fantastic!

    ReplyDelete
  154. Harku, in season 4.... she is self-empowered because she has stability. This shouldn't be this difficult for you to understand.

  155. rich says
    If the "chuck is horrified at how easily Sarah seduces her mark" is Chuck is horrified about how easily he is seduced by Sarah, what could chuck possibly be agreeing to? really can't wait for this episode!

    ReplyDelete
  156. I think you didn't understand my point, i know perfectly well how much Sarah has changed since then, but my point was that it was last time you said something like that, about how some ppl don't really understand Sarah character and was wondering if they explore this side of her character that you were talking about back then...if not than nvm.

    ReplyDelete
  157. I can't say more about it for now.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I knew that Chuck would say no to Sarah despite the dance. :D

    And that was a clever spoiler about Chuck being pissy with Sarah for seducing her mark so easily. So it didn´t really work in the end.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Heh... yeah, she seduced him easily but he figured it out in time. :)

  165. Some joker on the NBC board's is pounding the drum that there is a bug in the intersect and that there is going to be a whole plot line about how Ellie put a virus in the intersect to foil Chuck being a spy. It's moronic.

  168. Why would I need to watch the promo? If Chuck was having flash problems, I would know it. So, seems like you all are speculating incorrectly based on very little information... again.

  169. Not only speculating incorrectly, but speculating badly!!! Why would the writers go to a well that is bone dry? Two major flash issues in the last 20 episodes alone. Like I said: It's moronic.

    ReplyDelete
  170. It actually kinda looked like he was accessing something new in the intersect. I'd like to think Ellie's tinkering would have made it more efficient and given him more access to it. The end of the Ellie MD fixing the PhD's snaffu hasn't really added much to the story. You know, besides Chuck getting the 2.0 back and functioning. Just my opinion.

    ReplyDelete
  171. rich says
    the show runners kind of suggested that the something would be added to the intersect in the latest version. should we look at that as "show runner truth" also?
    me personally I like that chuck is doing things on his own without the intersect, but cmon, the intersect is awesome! I want him to use it and it to be part of the story.
    you suggested in a long ago podcast, that they would explore "why he is different, why he can handle the intersect while others can't" (which I don't understand cause they were going to put it in bryce AND all those fulcrum agents)
    can you give any clarification?
