Friday Odds & Ends: Chuck, Mr. Fox, A Serious Man and awesome mitts

+ Good morning and happy Friday to us all! First up, Sci-Fi Wire has a conversation with "Chuck" executive producer Chris Fedak on what to expect for next season. I didn't get a chance to watch much "Chuck" last season but this interview makes me want to tune in all over again.

+ Check out this photo gallery of celebs shot at this year's Comic-Con. Prettiness abounds...but with a shocking lack of BBC America stars. I am sad.

+ I hadn't even heard of "Fantastic Mr. Fox" until yesterday but now I really, really want to see it. Based on the novel by Roald Dahl, it's directed by Wes Anderson and stars the voices of Meryl Streep, George Clooney, Owen Wilson and Bill Murray. And did I mention it's stop-motion animation? Here's the preview.

+ Oh and hallelujah, there's another Coen brothers movie on the horizon. It's called "A Serious Man" and the A.V. Club has the preview, which is something of a work of art in its own right.

+ And finally, wouldn't baking be even better with these beauties to keep the third-degree burns away? Yes, Pac-Man Oven Mitts. They are deliciously awesome. (See what I did there?)
