Archive for the ‘My Own Worst Enemy’ Category

There’s an article on MSN TV about shows that might get a closed curtain this Fall and other new shows that get green light for 2nd season, like Fringe, The Mentalist, Entrourage, True Blood, Burn Notice and Psych (yay!). There are also some shows that are still on question mark, including My Own Worst Enemy, but I really hope that this one will last for at least 1 full season. Today Christian Slater came to Ellen show to promote his show, and he said that he’s just filmed 7th episode.

On the article, the author also lists 10 shows that he thinks might be cancelled: Til Death, The Adventures of Old Christine, Privileged, Lipstic Jungle, Terminator: Sarah Connor, Gary Unmarried, The Unit, The Ex List, Knight Rider, and Pushing Daisies. I don’t watch any of them; I only watch Knight Rider and Terminator once or twice, but I just can’t fit those 2 shows on my schedule to watch it regularly. 

Anyways, there’s also a forum there for people to discuss their thougts on which shows to go, and some people are unhappy their favorite shows are about to be cancelled. I feel for them because I was (and still am a little) pissed at ABC for canceling The Mole. 

I can’t be a judge on which shows to go, but I know which shows that I want to see next season, and some of them are: Burn Notice, Psych, and Eureka. The three shows are on their mid-season break and will return early next year. For reality shows and game shows, I’d love to see 2nd season of I Survive Japanese Game Show as long as they have fresh new ideas. Wipeout is always refreshing, and its 2nd season is on the making. For Crusoe and My Own Worst Enemy, I’d like to see the full 1 season to decide whether or not I wanna watch the 2nd season. However, I doubt that Crusoe will have 2nd season, afterall, I think it’s a miniseries based on books. Of course, the writers can always write new materials, but if it’s not good, it’s better to leave it as it is.

Update: this website provides the update of shows and their status, whether they’re cancelled, still in production (at least until next season) or likely renewed. According to the lastest update, Chuck, Prison Break, and Ugly Betty have high chances to be renewed.

That’s all that I can think of at the moment, I’ll add more once I think of something else. What do you think? Which shows should stay or go? Comment away 🙂

So in this 2nd episode we know that the switch between Henry and Edward is broken and the organization cannot fix it, at least for now. So Henry must carry on Edward’s duties and vice versa. It’s a little tough on Henry though doing Edward’s job, he had to interogate someone. During Edward’s job, he had to be accompanied by Raymond, because Henry wasn’t capable in doing Edward’s job. Funny thing though, Henry’s job, especially his domestic duties with his wife, it was Edward who got to do the job, and this made Henry unhappy.

Anyway, in this episode Henry found out that the memory that he had over 19 years was fake. None of his old school friends was real, even his 8th birthday video was a fake. So he went to his college buddy, a doctor, to get a CT Scan of his brain, and he found out that there was a chip implanted on his brain. Terrified of Edward finding out about this, he even made a password (which only Henry knew) with the doctor. But in the end, Edward found out about this because the insurance company called his wife, and the next thing Henry knew, his doctor friend had died. Whether or not Edward killed him, we’ll find out next week.

Youtube has been down for more than one hour. This afternoon when I visited it, it has an announcement that it’s going to have a maintenance. But usually the website keeps on running during maintenance, just a little slower. I’m not sure what’s going on, but I’m sure that it’s going to be alright by tomorrow.

Anyway, I’m watching Chuck, where Chuck got to know a little bit about Sarah’s background. Apparently she was not a popular girl in high school by a name Jennifer Burton. Anyways, the bad girl this time is Jennifer’s nemesis from high school who married a nerd just to get his technology. She said Sarah should’ve known from the start that she would never marry a nerd if it weren’t for something. I think Sarah and Chuck beg to differ 😛 Anyways, the girl that play the villian this time is Nicole Richie. I’ve seen her face once or twice somewhere.

So after this is Heroes, and then new episode of My Own Worst Enemy (the one that I’m really looking forward to watch). I might or might not write another post after I watch those two shows, we’ll see.

I wrote a post about the pilot of My Own Worst Enemy few days ago, but I didn’t have the link for the full video of the first episode. Here it is: http://www.nbc.com/My_Own_Worst_Enemy/video/categories/season-1/568182/ Also, since this show is NBC’s, it’s also available on Hulu.com: http://www.hulu.com/my-own-worst-enemy. I’m pretty sure both sides will upload the 2nd episode after it airs.

For those of you who don’t know what Hulu is, it’s a website owned by NBC universal that has a collection of videos and clips form movies, TV series, and news from FOX, NBC Universal, MGM, Sony Pictures Television, Warner Bros. and more. You can also watch your favorite (ongoing or retired) tv show episodes like: Friends, Family Guy, The Simpsons, and more.

Tonight was the premier of My Own Worst Enemy on NBC (10pm EST). It’s about Edward and Henry, same person, just different personalities. When Edward is “awake” on a mission, Henry is “asleep.” Edward is a spy and a womanizer, whereas Henry is a dedicated family guy.

This story began where Edward and Henry woke up at times they’re supposed to be asleep; Edward woke up at Henry’s house and Henry woke up during Edward’s mission causing him to be arrested. He was rescued by Raymond (a.k.a. Tom, Henry’s fellow officemate). Raymond/Tom was just like from Henry/Edward.

Anyway, so Henry found out about Edward, and a little bit about his secret. Funnily, Edward was the real person, and Henry was the alternate personality created by the organization Edward worked for. Edward is very secretive, even the Handler what Edward was thinking, so it’s up to Henry to reveal that. Edward volunteered to split his personality to prove his “free will.” The organization wanted to fix the situation because Henry found out too much about the organzation. So they re-brainwashed Edward/Henry.

But everything couldn’t go back to normal, because Edward’s nemesis, Oozie (not sure how to spell his name), came to Henry’s house to kill him. Thankfully, Edward already told Henry on a video what to do, so he could save his/their ass. So in the end, they know each other and they communicate and send message to each other through video. That should be interesting, I remember Henry told Edward, “there’s a difference between driving someone’s car and driving someone’s wife.” lol.

All in all, I like this series and I’ll be watching it again next week. If you miss it, I suggest you go ahead and watch it. I’m pretty sure that NBC will upload the pilot episode on its website: http://www.nbc.com/My_Own_Worst_Enemy/video/
