Ask the Addict: BATTLESTAR GALACTICA & HOUSE Spoilers, CHUCK 3D and More!

Where the Frak have you been? Do you think you can just throw up an “Ask the Addict” anytime you damn well feel like it? I have needs you know! — TVLover28

The TV Addict: Look people, “Ask the Addict” is a two way street. One that only works when you actually take the time to you know, ASK THE ADDICT! Which is why we’re back. Because it turns out that more than a few of you have yet to discover google have some really great TV questions which I’m going to do my absolute best to help answer. Ready….

I’ve been pulling my hair out all week long trying to find a pair of 3D glasses in time for Monday’s 3D episode of CHUCK. Help me TV Addict, you’re my only hope. — DownWithFulcrum

The TV Addict:
The good news is that according to our sources, and by sources I of course am referring to NBC’s official CHUCK news page, 3D glasses can be picked up for free at any of the the following retail locations: Kroger, Ralph’s, Frys, Safeway/Vons, Supervalu, Food Lion, A & P, Pathmark, Coburns, Fresh Brands, Hy Vee, Nash Finch, Roundy’s, Winn Dixie, K-Mart, Dollar General, Hess (select stores), CVS (select geographies), Meijer (on 1/31) and Target (on 1/31). CHUCK’s big news page also claims that, “Should a display’s supply of glasses run out or if a retailer near you does not carry the glasses, consumers can call 1-800-646-2904 to obtain a pair for free.”

The bad news is that if you currently reside outside the United States you’re pretty much out of luck. Unless of course you can scrounge together a cheap pair of plastic sunglasses, a red and blue permanent marker (ie. Sharpie) and a flat piece of clear plastic (ie. a transparency sheet) which combined, can easily be MacGyver’d together to create your very own pair of 3D glasses. Assuming of course you can follow these ridiculously instructions (Click for Video)

[Update] After checking in with our good friends over at NBC publicity, we’ve been informed that our attempt to MacGyver together our very own pair of 3D glasses will not work! Furthermore, viewers must use the “Color Code” glasses as the footage has been processed so it works with the Color Code technology.” D’oh!

Please tell me tonight’s episode of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA more than makes up for what Michael Ausiello called last week’s, “painfully tedious and self-indulgent art film.” — AusholeCharterMember#4

The TV Addict: What can I really tell you about tonight’s episode of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA other than it’s FRAKtastic? Well, it turns out a lot. Because I recently had the pleasure of viewing what I’m calling BSG meets Valkyrie and holy Frak it rocked! Sworn enemies are forced to work together to quash a Zarak and Gaeta led revolt, Starbuck and Lee Adama heat up the flight deck by doing their best Mr & Mrs. Smith impersonation and to cap it all off, the episode ends on a “to be continued…” so exciting that we pretty much can guarantee the death of at least one (possibly two) major characters when the episode concludes.

Is there any hope for a fourth season of FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS? — shanemd (via twitter)

The TV Addict: It certainly look so, at least according to Brian Stelter’s incredibly informative TV Decoder Blog which reported this week that, “Ben Silverman, the co-chair of NBC Entertainment, sounds hopeful about a fourth season of the critically acclaimed drama.”

I need 3cc’s of HOUSE scoop, Stat! — ThirteenHater

The TV Addict: Since your insurance only covers you for 2cc’s a scoop, you’re going to have to settle for the following. On Monday’s 100th episode of HOUSE, Foreman’s attempt to sneak Thirteen into the clinical trial will have serious reprecussions for both of their careers. While two of your favorite Princeton Plainsboro docs start off the episode in under the sheets.

Any update on the ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT movie? — BlueMan4ever

The TV Addict: No. But, if you live in Toronto, fall between the ages of 17 and 27 and would like the opportunity to ask lone hold-out Michael Cera himself why he has yet to officially sign on the dotted line, stay tuned to next week to discover how you can become an extra on his upcoming film Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.

Any word as to when the final three episodes of PUSHING DAISIES are going to air? — to_paraphrase (via twitter)

The TV Addict: The facts are these: No. But I can tell you that “the episodes were fantastic!!!” thanks to our good friends over at who were lucky enough to be invited by Bryan Fuller himself to a very special exclusive screening of the final three episodes held for the DAISIES cast and crew. And in case you’re wondering, no we’re not at all insanely jealous that our good friends over at got to spend an evening with the entire cast of PUSHING DAISIES. Really.

    Psst, Daniel, the Chuck 3D glasses have violet-blue/mustard-yellow lenses, not red and blue.

  • Josh Emerson

    I got my Chuck 3D glasses at Dollar General. They had a huge stack of them.

  • Vance

    I was wondering if us Canadians even had a chance to get the glasses. I’ve heard nothing from City about it.

  • Jasmine

    eeeeeeeeeeeeee…..KARA/LEE!!!! omg…now i’m superexcited about BSG!!!!!

  • Linda B.

    I have a pair of glasses from when i went to see Journey to the Center of the Earth last year. Will these glasses (red and blue) not work if the new lenses are violet blue/mustard yellow?

  • Gabi

    sorry if I sound really stupid right now, but what difference would it make to watch CHUCK with the 3D glasses, and watch it without? Would I miss anything? See things different? Can someone explain, please?

  • Ace

    I have looked at the Food Lion and Target nearest to me and have had no luck finding the glasses and I’ve read that NBC’s number says they are out of them. I guess it isn’t that big a deal to not see it in 3D but Chuck and Casey in 3D, yes please. :-P

  • Josh Emerson

    Agreed Ace. And Capt. Awesome! Sarah might be billed as the hot one on that show, but there are more than enough good looking guys in the cast.

    i would squeal with joy if FNL somehow got a new season!!!

  • Shafiii

    Can I watch the 3-D episode off my DVR later or online? Does it matter? haha, 3-D is too intense for me!

  • TVFan

    As long as you’re not wearing 3-D glasses you have nothing to worry about.

  • John Jira

    You can all pick up the 3-D glasses at Buy More. :-)
