Adam Baldwin on the Save Firefly and Chuck campaigns. This interview with him (and Zachary Levi) was conducted at T1 last weekend.

Another Baldwin? Just how many of them are there...?

crystalsinger, do you honestly not recognize Adam Baldwin from Firefly? Or are you just joking round?
I didn't get wind of the save Firefly campaign until after I knew there was no chance it could come back. We knew it was dead at that point. Chuck is nowhere near that position. I'm cautiously optimistic, but obviously it's not my call. But I think we're on the good side of the bubble which is a good place to be.


This sounds like a pretty positive position for Chuck fans!
I'm pretty confident Chuck will come back, and have been for a while. Also, I don't watch the show, and probably should.
Chuck = awesome. I was a doubter at first.

Hope it gets renewed.
Chuck is easily my favorite show on TV right now. I hope it comes back.
And Adam Baldwin is someone with the last name "Baldwin", he is not one of "them".

I also hope "Chuck" returns, it has a great heart with emotional truth in it - unlike Dollhouse alas, which may have intellectual truths, but no heart.
I have a strong feeling, if Chuck turns up on The CW miraculously, it'll do the same as Reaper (i.e. badly). T:TSSC I think would be a nice addition for The CW for some reason. Surely it isn't a bad pairing with Supernatural.

Anyway, I've only a few episodes of Chuck and I so want it to come back! Two seasons just feels too short for a show like it. I think NBC will actually be swayed by all these Save Chuck Campaigns.
@TamaraC: Eh, I'm not much of a Browncoat, and I don't know all the cast's real names (unlike, say, how I know the actors who played even relatively minor characters in Buffy). *shrug*

I've watched Firefly, but well after the fact, and mainly 'coz I enjoyed Serenity (first time I tried watching Firefly before that I was 'meh'...).

But yeah, a quick Google and I now of course realise who he is and the context. I guess I still have the "Baldwin = unending band of brothers" reflex... Bad me. ;-)

I think some people have less of a problem with someone not knowing who Adam is or isn't, and more of a confusion about why you keep spelling his last name wrong when it's right there in the title of this thread. ;)
I love Chuck, and I would be surprised if it didn't come back. Its renewal has seemed very likely for a while now.
And the Baldwin brothers spell their last name without the "Y" also.
"Likely"? I don't think that word means what you think it means.

Nikki Finke says that Chuck has already been renewed, so...fingers crossed.
In an item that was deleted twice from here because every other media reporter -- and Zach Levi and Josh Schwartz -- says there's no decision, and the original plan to announce tomorrow was pushed back, possibly by two or three weeks.

ETA that now TVbytheNumbers claims -- but partly based on Nikki's completely unsourced report -- that Chuck announcement comes tomorrow. What that does -- or does not do -- to Levi and Schwartz just like a day or so ago saying that plan had changed, I have no idea.

Finke is sometimes wrong. I did some digging last week as a friend of mine likes some Chuck, all I could find out was that NBC is haggling about price. Since Medium has been officially renewed over the weekend, it's possible the price haggling will now stop.
Quoth The One True b!X:

I don't know what on earth you're talking about... ;-)
