Forget two-oh-oh-eight, welcome two-oh-oh nine! Well, it’s not exactly midnight at where I am now, but I write this early post anyway for many reasons. 1. It’s 2009 already in some parts of the world. 2. I won’t be able to post at midnight as I may be busy 😆
Wish you all the happiest new year, and may all your new year resolutions come true!
Few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the cancelled tv shows where I listed the scheduled air date for shows that are on their season finale. Crusoe only has 1 season with 13 episodes. From what I knew, there was supposed to be a Crusoe tonight and the last 3 episodes will air on 2009. However, I was surprised when I tuned in to NBC and found Beijing Olympics 2008 opening ceremony instead. So I checked with NBC.com, and it appeared that they’ve changed their schedule quite a bit. So here’s the updated schedule for the last 4 episodes of Crusoe:
‘Smoke and Mirrors’ airs Saturday, 1/10 at 8pm ET
‘The Hunting Party’ airs Saturday, 1/17 at 8pm ET
‘The Traveler’ airs Saturday, 1/24 at 8pm ET
‘The Return’ airs Saturday, 1/31 at 8pm ET
Well, I guess it never hurts to re-watch the opening ceremony again. It was spectacular.
Merry Christmas! Merry Kwanza! Merry Hannukah! Whichever one you celebrate, or if none of them, happy holidays to you all! 😀 May this holiday season bring you joy.
I’m off to celebrate more, see ya later 🙂
Sorry for a week delay in announcing week 9 of Hulu Award Nomination. Due to holidays, last this week’s nomination is stretched for more than 2 weeks 🙂 so it’s not too late to vote.

This web original category includes content that has been produced or released exclusively on the web. Just like not all reality shows are good, not all web originals are good. This time, we are nominating both the worst and the best at the same time, from the same eligible nominees.
I’m sure you’ll have your opinions on which series/movies you think deserve an award. It might be tough to pick just one, but don’t worry you can nominate more than one. So comment away 🙂 You can also still nominate from last week’s categories: Best Leisure/Travel Show, Best Cooking/Food Show, and Worst Reality Show. Just scroll down or click here.
If you never heard of any of the show and interested in watching it, you can always borrow or rent the DVD, or to watch it for free, go to Hulu.com and search for the title, just make sure that it belongs to the right category. Again, if you cannot watch Hulu (I understand that Hulu currently is only available in US), you can still nominate any of these shows if you happen to know and like any of them.
Also, if you are interested in voting for other previous categories, you can always go to TheHuluReview.blogspot.com to vote for your favorite shows and movies in the comments section. Each category is conveniently listed in the upper right corner of the main page. Happy commenting 😀
On this episode, Crusoe and Friday’s friendship was again put on a test. Crusoe was a little smug believing that he was smarter than Friday, who was uneducated. He pointed out that he had to study algebra. Friday had a “manhood” test too on his tribe, and Crusoe wanted to know what it was because he thought whatever Friday could do at 12 years old, he could do it too.
There were a series of tests on Friday’s tribe: walking on hot coals, jousting, bungeejumping, and duelling with crocodile. Friday failed the last test because he was afraid; he watched the boy before him got attacked and injured by crocodile so he chickened out. He believed that he’d made his father dissapointed in him, not to mention the whole tribe. He was a failed warrior.
Crusoe on the other hand, wanted to prove that he was (slightly) better than Friday by doing all the challenges, except the last one because Friday refused to tell him what it was. He insisted in asking Friday what it was causing Friday to be a little touchy. Friday was angry because Crusoe took the test as a game, and it was very important and serious matter for Friday. When Crusoe found out that Friday failed the test, he encouraged Friday to re-do the test and pass it. Friday told him to forget it.
However, Crusoe fell into his own trap and landed on a tree branch hanging a few feet above a lake with a “giant killer crocodile” waiting to eat him. Because he was injured, Crusoe couldn’t hang on to the branch any longer, and he fell down. Friday had to let go of his fear and duelled the crocodile to save Crusoe. And of course, he passed this time. Here’s a clip from last night’s episode:Vodpod videos no longer available.
Again, if you missed this episode (like me), you can watch it on hulu.com/crusoe or nbc.om/crusoe. Four more episodes until Crusoe returns to England along with Friday. Stay tuned 🙂
Last week, we had Best Leisure/Travel Show, Best Food/Cooking Show, and Worst Reality Show. For this week, we have a couple new categories, but with end-of-year holiday, we have about 2 weeks for these categories. That’s said, I’ll post the new categories next week. So, those of you who wonder about this week’s hulu award nomination, stay tuned! Well, if you can’t wait, you can always go to TheHuluReview.blogspot.com 🙂
