Tonight on Crusoe, everything was revealed. Why Jeremiah Blackthrone did what he did to Crusoe, and Crusoe finally found out the truth. Apparently, Jeremiah was Crusoe’s uncle. Crusoe’s father was actually William Blackthrone who was the sole heir of Blackthrone’s fortune. If the secret leaked out, all Blackthrone’s would be Crusoe’s and even if Crusoe died, all the fortune would go to Crusoe’s kids.
Jeremiah came to the island to finish Crusoe off, then went back to England and adopt Crusoe’s kids and just made sure that they didn’t live up to age to claim their rights. Good (and cunning) plan, and meanwhile Jeremiah sent out a group assasins to kill Friday and Crusoe, he and Crusoe’s brother in law went to Crusoe’s treehouse to search for the piece of paper that hold the truth. Frustrated because he couldn’t find it, Jeremiah burnt the treehouse down.
Luckily, rain fell down and there were some remains of the house. Crusoe found his bible and the hidden piece of paper. He tried to traded it with his (and Friday’s) freedom from the island. Jeremiah tricked Crusoe, he still wanted to kill Friday. Crusoe fought for it, and jumped down to the sea with Friday. So they were left in the island again. However, Jeremiah didn’t get his wish too, there was actually a sick man on the ship, and the disease was contageous. The whole ship wouldn’t make it back to England.
So Crusoe and Friday were still on the island, but sooner or later, Olivia (and perhaps with Suzannah and her kids) would come to the island to reunite or rescue Crusoe off the island. I haven’t read the book so I don’t know how the story ends on the novel. However, as for Crusoe the series, this episode is the finale. If you miss tonight’s episode, you can always catch up at nbc.com/crusoe or hulu.com/crusoe.
Just watched Howie Do It, was funny, even though there was one prank that had been used before (funny bunny the singing telegram). My favorite prank for today was the Surprise Patrol, so hillarious, and the guy’s slowness made it even funnier! If you missed it, go watch it at nbc.com/howie-do-it, tonight’s episodes should be uploaded by tomorrow.
Speaking of NBC, tomorrow is the finale for Crusoe. So if you’ve been following Crusoe since the first episode (like me), tomorrow we’ll see Crusoe returning to England and all secrets would be revealed. I haven’t read the novel yet, but I’m curious whether Friday will come with Crusoe to England, and what will happen to him. Tune in tomorrow Saturday, 8 pm EST for the last episode of Crusoe!

Well, the open calls for new season of I survived Japanes Game Show has been wrapped up in LA, the last stop for the audition. I didn’t go though, I decided I’m not a reality show type of material because I’m so boring 😆 I do want to participate on the games, just no cameras when I’m making fool of myself please 😛 So yeah, no more auditions available for the show, but I’m not sure if they still accept application through email. But if you just found out about this and wanted to apply, you can always send the application email. Click here for the email address and other information. Also, there is a link to apply for wipeout.
Other than that, Burn Notice is back! Just watched it yesterday on USAnetwork.com/burnnotice. Continuing the last episode, Carla said that it wasn’t her (or her men) who tried to blow Michael up, so Michael was assigned to find out who wanted him dead. All new Burn Notice episode on Thursday, Jan 29 on 10 pm EST.
This week’s episode this the 2nd to last episode. Next week will be Crusoe Finale, where he will finally return to England. As always, before the climax, the story becomes complicated.
Crusoe and Friday heard a banging sound and when they went to check it out, they found an English ship on the sea. The ship was sailing far from the shore though because they thought the crews (on small boat) crashed and drowned when trying to reach the shore. Crusoe and Friday rescued one of the men who survived, and Crusoe knew him. But alas, he wasn’t exactly a good guy. When following Crusoe’s flashbacks and seeing what’s going on in England, everyone was trying to erase Crusoe’ s existance. Also on the Ship: Crusoe’s brother in law. I bet their intention to come to this island was not to rescue Crusoe but to eliminate him.
Anyways, Crusoe was so happy to meet this bloke – his godfather – because he thought he was on the rescue mission to search for him. This fella, Jeremiah Black-something, just like any other people, thought Friday was Crusoe’s slave and didn’t want to believe otherwise. Friday, of course, didn’t like him, and he was right. That guy lied to Crusoe about what happened to Suzannah. Friday reminded Crusoe that he couldn’t put his trust on this bloke, but Crusoe didn’t bother. Crusoe believed that people on the ship would send out a rescue team to search for Jeremiah, and this thought was enough to fool Crusoe.
After that bloke met up with his guys from the main ship, he ordered his crews to kill Friday first 😡 and after that…. to be continued!
Olivia (the pirate girl) wasn’t helping either. She came back to England and rescued Suzannah (who was a wreck) but she wasn’t being very honest either – she had a feeling for Crusoe afterall. But Suzannah found out the ill-actions that her brother had done so far to her and her family.
I think at this point, the whole Crusoe story is coming together – just like the book. Anyways, don’t miss next week’s episode, where all the betrayals would be revealed, and Crusoe will reunite with his wife 🙂 The Crusoe Finale will air on Saturday, January 31 at 8 pm EST on NBC.
Continuing the Hulu Award Nomination, there are a couple new categories this week and they are: Best Talk & Interview Show, Best Informational Show, Best News Show, Best Major Network, Best TV Network, and Best Movie Studio. Yes, it’s quite a list of awards we are nominating this week, which means the offical winner of each categories will be announced soon 🙂 It might be tough to pick just one, but don’t worry you can nominate more than one. So comment away 🙂 Again, I’m using excerpt due to the long list of eligible nominees. Click on read more to view the eligible candidates and to comment.

When nominating on Hulu Award, I always come accross some of my favorite movies/tv shows. And on Best Cartoon Series, there are a couple: Family Guy, The Simpsons, and Futurama. Futurama is my all time favorite cartoon series, made by the same creator of The Simpsons. I even like it more than the first two, but it was cancelled on 2002 (boo!). I don’t have all the DVDs of every season (they had 5), but I used to watch it on Adult Swim on Cartoon Network. But now, they stopped playing it too 😡 Anyways, if you’ve never heard of Futurama, rent the DVD. You won’t regret it 🙂 Oh, in case you’re wondering, Futurama is about Fry, a guy who got frozen on the 20th century and wake up on 30th century. There he befriends a robot named Bender, and work as a delivery guy (w/ a spaceship) to his great-great-great nephew, who also happens to be a scientist.
