On Thursday, there were 2 season premier of Burn Notice & The Listener, both at 9 pm. So naturally I chose Burn Notice, but thankfully there was another episode of The Listener, so I got to watch the 2nd episode. I just finished watching the the first episode online (at NBC.com). So far, I can say that I like the listener, the concept is somewhat new. The main character, Toby Logan, has a gift of telephatic ability. He used to think that that gift was a curse, but he found out that he could help other people’s lives, by “stalking their thoughts.” So if you’re interested in watching the first 2 episodes, you can do so at NBC.com/the-listener. For Burn Notice, watch at USANetwork.com
Speaking of Burn Notice, there’s a new sweepstakes and this time the grand prize is a trip to Miami plus Burn Notice set tour. To read more about this sweepstakes, click here.
Next Monday is the finale of 2nd season of Chuck, and yet no news from NBC that they gave a green light for 3rd season. On my previous post, I wrote about shows that will or won’t get cancelled, and which ones are still undecided, and Chuck is one of them. I don’t want start ranting again because it’s not cancelled yet, but I write this post to gather all Chuck-mania to voice your opinion that we need more Chuck! Go to NBC.com/chuck and post on the forum, get your family/friends to watch the finale on Monday, April 27, 2009 on 8 pm EST.
Another blogger also had the same idea and he interviewed several Chuck-mania. Read his post here.
After capturing Victor, Michael “interogated” him and he found out that Victor was trying to destroy the organization. Victor was burned and his family was killed, and he eventually found out that Carla killed his family in order to recruit him, so he wanted revenge. He had a file containing Carla’s dirty not-so-little secret. He and Michael were planning to blackmail her to back off while they were hiding in Cuba.
Their plan didn’t go as planned, of course. Carla ambushed them at Victor’s boat. Victor was shot, and Carla tried to talk Michael to be the hero and hand over Victor to her. Since Michael wouldn’t cooperate, Carla was going to blow the boat up, luckily Fiona and Sam got there on time and shot Carla. More people were coming towards the boat and the management, “the big boss,” was coming too. The dying Victor convinced Michael to shot him dead and he could walk out as a hero, by killing Victor and handing over Carla’s file to the management. Since there was no other option, Michael agreed.
Michael got to meet the management, and he was convinced that Michael was a valuable asset. He offered Michael Carla’s position and a raise, but Michael just wanted his life to be normal. The big boss then said that the organization had been protecting him by keeping his enemies away. Michael knew that if he broke the deal with the management, his old enemies could come and haunt him, but he chose his freedom and gonna take his chances. Well, that’s the end of the 2nd season of Burn Notice. We’ll see Michael’s adventure as a “free man” in the season 3. I’m sure that it’s gonna air this summer. I’ll keep an eye when season 3 will premier. 🙂

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.
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.
This week on Hulu Award Nomination: the theme is Sci-Fi/Fantasy (my favorite theme so far). There are 3 new and 2 old categories this week and they are: Best Sci-Fi Movie, Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Series, Best Video Games Coverage, Worst Movie, and Worst TV Series. For science fiction, fantasy, and video game lovers (like me!), I’m sure you’ll have your opinions on which SciFi/Fantasy movie or TV show that you think deserve an award. It might be tough to pick just one, but don’t worry you can nominate more than one. The comments are yours for taking 🙂 So here it goes:
1. Best Science Fiction Movie and the eligible nominees are:
Atom Age Vampire
The Crawling Hand
Empire of the Ants
The Fifth Element
Heroes (the movie)

4. Worst Movie and Worst Scripted TV Series. These are two separate categories, but the eligible candidates are the same from the eligible nominees from the Best Movie and TV shows from all genres. If I copy paste all of them this post will be very very long. Instead, if you really want to see the nominees, follow these links: Action, Classic, Family & Cartoon, Drama, Comedy, Horror, and Sci-Fi/Fantasy. Or, you can just simply nominate anything you want, and if they’re eligible, I’ll take your input into account.
You can nominate any movie/series you want, as many as you wish. If you never heard of any of them 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.
PS: I know that not maybe none of your favorite shows/movies is listed above, but if you just happen to know or like a little, you can nominate them. Since this is a Hulu Award, we can only nominate shows that are available on Hulu. But then again, you can always comment and nominate whatever show you want 🙂 I’d love to hear what shows/movies you like. Happy commenting 😀
Well, last night’s My Own Worst Enemy will be the last episode of the series that you’ll ever get to see. NBC axed the show without giving it a chance for a full season. 😡 I don’t know about you, but this last episode doesn’t bring closure to me. Yeah sure, Henry and Edward could co-exist without them hating each other. They understand each other better and can “pretend” to be each other more convincingly. However, there are still stories to be told, mysteries to be unrevealed. James, Boss of Janus, still has a lot of secrets that I’m intriqued to know. Sigh, I guess I have to just make up my own fan-fiction to make myself satisfied with this show. Anyways, I don’t know how long NBC will keep its NBC.com/my_own_worst_enemy page, even hulu announced that they can only “post up to 5 trailing episodes of the current season for a limited time.” Now my last hope for this series is that NBC will make the DVD of the only season of this show, and hopefully we can get to see another 1 or 2 episodes that are not aired. Fingers crossed.
