Firewall & Iceberg Podcast, episode 55: Press tour, 'Big Love' and 'Chuck' creators Josh Schwartz & Chris Fedak
It's been a while since we had a guest interview on the Firewall & Iceberg Podcast, and since I'm still in California for the TV critics' press tour, Dan and I decided to do the latest one in person. So Thursday afternoon we broke away from a series of TCA field trips in order to visit the office of "Chuck" co-creator Josh Schwartz, who joined us and co-creator Chris Fedak for a long, strange, at times informative, at times hopefully funny interview as "Chuck" prepares to return with new episodes on Monday. If you're a "Chuck" fan, hopefully you'll enjoy it, but it's also entirely possible that it has destroyed our relationship with the show. We really don't know.
In addition, Dan and I shared more anecdotes from the second half of press tour, and also offer a review of "Big Love" season 5. The run-down:
