Nerds and nudity. What more could a fan want from an episode of Chuck?
Star Zachary Levi directed Friday's episode, "Chuck vs. the Hack Off" (8/7c on NBC), in which Chuck (Levi) and his team are trying to track down a possibly devastating computer virus. "It's one of our nerdier episodes," co-executive producer Chris Fedak told reporters at a set visit this month. "There's not as many hack off jokes as you'd think [there would be]. We learn a little about Chuck's backstory, who he was before he met Sarah, a little bit about the hacker side of Chuck."
As the spy series Chuck rides off into the sunset, we grilled cocreators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak for their favorite eps.
Chuck Versus Santa Claus (Season 2, Episode 11)
This episode comes from our two great inspirations:
The final season of Chuck is underway, and nervous fans are unsure of what to make of the titular Nerd Herder working without the Intersect.
"I'm a little hesitant to actually tell you if he'll actually get it back or not," co-executive producer Chris Fedak told reporters on a call to promote Friday's episode, "Chuck Versus the Bearded Bandit" (8/7c, NBC). "Chuck with the Intersect was a little too easy. We wanted to have more fun this season going back to Season 1 and Season 2 Chuck where things were difficult and complicated and he had to come up with his own Chuck solutions to problems."

Before we eat that last footlong and pour a 40-ounce soft drink out on the curb, there are 13 more episodes of Chuck left in its fifth and final season, kicking off Friday (8/7c on NBC).
Much has happened to our titular Nerd Herder-turned-spy and his friends, family and fellow agents in the past four seasons. And for the most part, we're fairly satisfied. We've seen Chuck (Zachary Levi) come into his own as a spy and as a man by finally marrying Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). We've met his butt-kicking parents (Linda Hamilton, Scott Bakula), saw Ellie and Awesome (Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin) have a baby and even witnessed Morgan (Josh Gomez) find romance.

Our roundup of the most memorable moments of the Emmys:
14. Worst Opening-Number Follow-Up: Emmy host Jane Lynch takes viewers on a tour through a fictional building where all TV sets and characters supposedly reside. Highlights of this exercise in randomness: Lynch tests out the laugh track at The Big Bang Theory, horrifies the Mad Men ad guys with tales of fast-forwarding through commercials and Slushees her Glee alter ego. The song ends on the line, "There's no place like TV ... except for HBO -- it's not TV."
