This week on Burn Notice, shocking news to everyone: Michael had a fiancee. Samantha showed up at Michael’s house asking Michael for help. She was forced by a black market trader to steal a government chips in order to get her son back. Even though, Sam assured Michael that the boy wasn’t his, he still wanted to help her. So they worked together to trick the guy to give up the chip and returned it to where it was so that Sam was safe from FBI, NSA, and many other government agents.
Sam’s showing up stir up some drama for Michael. The other Sam didn’t have any opinion, but Michael’s mom and Fiona weren’t too happy with the fact that Michael never told about being enganged. Anyways, Sam cleared up the situation by saying that it was she that proposed to Michael, and Michael confessed that he left Sam because he was in love with Fiona.
On other thing, Victor contacted Michael and they agreed to meet. Victor only wanted to be friends on his term, they disagreed and Michael knocked him down. Now he has big choices to be made: make Victor his friends on mutual term, or turn Victor in to Carla in exchange for his freedom. I think Michael would choose the first choice, but we shall see what he’ll do next week. Speaking of next week, I believe next week’s episode will be the finale of the 2nd season, so it’s gonna be good. Mark your calendar March 5, 10 pm EST on USA network for the finale.
There’s 1 more show that’s going to be added to my sunday-tv list: The Celebrity Apprentice. When I found out that it was on Sundays, I was afraid that the time slot would clash with The Amazing Race. If it happened, I wouldn’t know which one I would choose to watch live. If you know me, you’d know that I’d rather watch 1 full show and watch the other later online, instead of switching channels like crazy. Hmm…maybe I will choose Amazing Race over The Apprentice because there will be more drama in the Apprentice (not really a fan of bickering).
Anyway, I don’t have to choose now. I was so happy when I found out that The Apprentice will air at 9 pm EST, just right after the Amazing Race.
As promised, I’m going to list all the official nominess for all categories of our very first Hulu Award. Our job as panelists is over, we have proposed nominees that we think are worthy and now it’s your turn to cast your vote. As you might have guessed, it’s going to be a long post, so click on read more to see and vote. 🙂
This week on Amazing Race, the teams went to Munich, Germany. There they had to take a sky gondola and one of the member had to “fly” down the hill using parachute. It’s tricky however, because when wind blew hard, they had to wait until it calmed down. All teams but one chose to run/walk down the hill by foot. For Mel, from father-son team, hiking down the hill wasn’t an option because of his old legs, so he had to wait. After all team left, Mel & Mike felt so hopeless, but miracle happened and their team was the 5th team finishing the first task.
On the second task, it was road block: Balancing Dolly or Austrian Folly. Tammy & Victor who had lead the race since the beginning won this leg of the race by far. I truly believe their team is very solid and strong (just like Nick & Star from last season), and I actually like them better than Nick & Star because Tammy & Victor aren’t cunning and they’re respectful towards other teams. But from next week’s preview, it seems that they’re gonna have some disagreement. If they can resolve the problem quickly and peacefully, I think their team will go far.
On other sibling team, LaKisha & Jennifer, they already showed their frustration towards each other. They did their tasks okay, but they kept on getting lost which wasted time. In the end, there were 4 teams competing to make it to the pitstop. Because it was dark, it was harder to navigate. Linda & Steve were eliminated tonight; it was a little sad because it was close with Christie & Jodi. But, considering that Linda got lost when hiking down the hill, they did pretty good on the rest of the race. And even if they weren’t eliminated, I don’t think Linda & Steve would go far because they’re competing against teams that have younger members.
Just finished watching yesterday’s Burn Notice online, for those of you who wanted to watch it online too, go to www.usanetwork.com/series/burnnotice. I just realized that since it’s back on TV, I haven’t blogged anything about Burn Notice. I used to do it faithfully every week. Well, hopefully I’ll remember to write Burn Notice post every week again from now on.
Anyways, Michael’s side job this week was to help Claude, a father who wanted to seek justice for his daughter. Jean Pierre Duman, the culprit, was a fugitive from Haiti; he lived under an alias in Miami. Michael planned to get the documents from Duman to uncover the truth. The plan didn’t work though, because Duman’s father suspected Michael. Since plan A didn’t work, Mike and friends used plan B, to kidnap Duman. And who could kidnap a spoiled rich guy better than Fiona? The plan worked well, and Duman was shipped back to Haiti to face his trial.
Other than the side job, Michael found out the guy who tried to kill him. It was Victor, the guy who Michael (was forced to work with by Carla. He’s also a burned spy, and their mission was to steal a pimped riffle (episode 206). Victor managed to get away from Michael, but the question remains why? My guess is that Victor doesn’t want Michael around for either of these reasons: a) Michael is too dangerous, and he doesn’t want him to work for Carla. b) Michael is too dangerous, and he doesn’t want to compete with him. I know my guesses are pretty lame, we’ll find out what’s really going on next week 🙂 Don’t forget to watch Burn Notice every Thursday 10 pm EST at USA Network OR you can watch the latest episodes online at usanetwork.com.
Been a litle busy since last weekend. I just had time to catch up with last week’s Burn Notice and Monk. Michael was still in the quest to find the person who wanted him dead, he didn’t get any info, but that guy (whoever he was) was alarmed when Mike was trying to poke around. I also just watched this week’s Chuck, where Chuck and Sarah had to pose as a married couple. Pretty funny, but in the end their relationship got a minor set back. Just in case you wonder where I watch the shows (no I don’t watch them from DVR), I watch them online at the network’s official website: NBC.com and USANetwork.com
On other news, Hulu Award will have official nominees for all categories hopefully by next week. I’ll post the list of all nominees (or perhaps the poll link from polldaddy) so you can vote 🙂 Speaking of polldaddy, I’ve had some ideas for poll on by blog for a while (before wordpress had the feature). Now that they have it, I can’t remember what I wanted to do with the poll 😆
The new episode of the latest season of The Amazing Race just aired today at CBS. As usual there are 12 teams of two, some siblings, some couples, some close friends. Click here to see the full cast of this season’s Amazing Race.
So first destination is Switzerland, which by the way is very beautiful. The first challenge was a road block, where one person from each team had to bungee jump (2nd highest in the world) on a dam. The second task was to carry 200 lbs of cheese down the hill, sounds easy, but believe me, it wasn’t easy at all. Well, if you miss this episode or want to watch again, go to cbs.com to watch it online.
