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’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 last week’s story, Edward found out that his parents were killed by Janus, so naturally, he became disloyal toward the company he’d served for many years. He agreed to steal Falcon (something to do with missile) and hand it over to KGB as an exchange for the help. He doubled back the security testing that was held by Janus and steal Falcon instead. However, just before the exchange, Henry woke up, and things became messed up because Janus sent Raymond to hunt the traitor down. Raymond managed to kill the KGB agent, but Henry managed to escape unscratched and his identity hidden.
In this episode we learn about Edward’s parents. His father was a CIA agent, and Edward was actually a great kid. Due to seeing his parents died in “accident,” he decided to be a spy to find out who killed his parents. The fact that was given by KGB agent made Edward wanted to betray his country just to find out the truth, but Henry talked him out of it and Edward returned the Falcon. He also managed to saved themselves from being revealed as the traitor who had a deal with KGB.
So this week on Crusoe, the mutineers were still on the island. But Crusoe and Friday found a way to leave the island for good. My favorite moment this week was when Crusoe said, “Ship doesn’t grow on trees.” But then, they found a ship stuck on top of trees 😆 The ship was stuck up during high tides, and on it, they found a corpse, a gun, and a compass. This discovery made Crusoe really excited about the high possiblity of escaping from the island. Even the wind and tide was on their side. Even Friday was becoming more curious about England and the people there.
Unfortunately, their compass was burned, so Crusoe wanted to steal one from the mutineers. They managed to do so, but they were caught when trying to get out from the camp. When they tried to shake off the pursuer, they got lost in the part of island they never wandered to and bad things awaited them. Friday fell on a steep hill, fell into a cave, and got his shoulder dislocated. Luckily the log that hit him didn’t break his leg. Moreover, the high tide was coming.
Friday told Crusoe to just leave him there and took the boat leaving the island. Friday even said that he didn’t belong in England where he would be seen as a slave, but Crusoe said that he was the best friend he ever had and he was determined to help Friday there no matter what prejudice they would face. However, Crusoe couldn’t move the log, and the water was getting higher and higher. Friday promised Crusoe, if he made it out of this incident alive, he’d come with Crusoe to England.
Crusoe had to wrack his brain in order to save Friday, but finally he got an idea. He used rock as weight to lift the log and threw it to the cliff. So Friday was saved, and they came out of the cave. But they were too late, their ship was taken to the sea by tides. But it was a good thing too because their ship wasn’t strong enough to sail over the ocean. It was wrecked before it reached too far. Their stolen compass also broke, so they were back to square one again.
I think I already know what my next week’s post title would be: Crusoe and Friday and the Tribe. It looks like they are going to encounter the native tribe (Friday’s family) and again, other plans in escaping from the island. Anyway, this week’s Crusoe quote: “By borrowing I mean, taking it and never giving it back.”
This week, the peaceful island was once again disrupted by foreigners. This time, a group of people (England ship crews and their hijackers) came to the island. Crusoe, wanting to get out of the island, made a deal with the ship captain that if he successfully gave the captain his commander-ship, the captain would take Crusoe and Friday out of the island. So Crusoe and Friday made a plan to free the captain. Initally, Crusoe wanted to recruit a kind-hearted pirate member, but he turned out to be a woman, and Crusoe hesitated. Their plan B is using the skulls and bones that Friday collected to scare the crews.
The plan worked, but due to some circumstances, they couldn’t help the captain. Friday and Crusoe’s duel exercises come in handy because they had to duel the captain and his right hand man. Friday managed to hurt the mutanerous’ leader, but I doubt he died. Crusoe managed to escape from the ship with few wounds, but the ship crashed into corals, so it looked like they were stuck in the island, and Crusoe still had hopes in leaving the island for good. We’ll see what happens next week.
