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:

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 😀

Good luck and Hai~Majide!!

So I tuned in to NBC at 10 pm EST because it was a habit (of watching My Own Worst Enemy) and there was a new “looking-for-love” type of show: Momma’s Boy. This one is quite funny tho, and not too much cat-fight and bitching (because the mothers are staying with the girls). There are 3 guys who claim that they are momma’s boys and they bring along their moms to find their love. But as always, to add the excitement, the boys’ choices are not mom’s choices.

Another drama: one of the mother is a racist to the core. She doesn’t want any color-skinned girl for his boy. I cannot believe it that such human still exist. I don’t know if she’s just hired by the producers to act like that to add spice to the show or what, but darn she makes herself a good villain. She wants her daugher in law to be white,  catholic, and do whatever she says; it’s insanity. Go marry your own son!  😛 The other moms are okay, but of course, they’re not happy with their sons’ choices. One of the mom is already in love with a girl and keeps on pushing the girl to his son 😆

Anyways, I don’t really watch the whole full hour of the show because I keep on switching the channels. Not sure if I’m going to watch it again; I might if I really don’t have anything to do. But I’m sure this show appeals to broad audience. If you’re interested in watching it, go to NBC.com, I’m sure that they have the first few episodes of the show uploaded there.

Continuing the Hulu Award Nomination, this week’s theme is Drama. There are 4 new categories this week and they are: Best Dramatic Movie, Short Format Series (Comedy), and Short Format Series (non-Comedy). For drama and comedy lovers, I’m sure you’ll have your opinions on which movie, TV show, and short series that you think deserve an award. 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, especially we have the most nominees so far. Click on read more to view the eligible candidates and to comment.

Well, for some people summer is a great time to relax. I totally agree. Another thing that I love about summer, a lot of new TV shows and new seasons of the others.

These past few weeks, I spend a lot of time watching TV when I want to relax or just have nothing to do. And ever since I wrote about Japanese Game Show post and I saw how many people are actually have the same interest as me, I would like to share more about what I watch on TV.

I like funny tv shows, I watch American Funniest Home Videos and other similar programs. So, it’s natural for me to like the japanese game shows on ABC. I don’t watch MXC often though, because I just don’t know when it’s airing (I think it’s usually in the afternoon, when I’m working). Other TV show that I currently watching is: The Mole (also on ABC). It’s a show where a group of players compete and/or play as a team, and one of them is The Mole who will always try to sabotage every mission. The goal of the game is to figure out who’s The Mole, and the player will the most knowledge about the mole will win in the end. It’s on halfway of the game, only 6 players left. I think next Monday, it’s gonna be a recap of the half season.

Another channel that I watch a lot is USA. I’m waiting for new seasons of Burn Notice, Monk and Psych. I like those 3 shows very much, and I do my best not to miss them. And if I do, I’ll make sure watch it online :-P. I love action and I love comedy, so of those 3 my absolute fave is Burn Notice. I didn’t watch the first season when it aired. But I got to watch one of the encore episode and fell in love. So I finished watching the first episode online and can’t wait until next week when season 2 begins. It’s a story about a spy who get fired, so he’s trying to figure out what’s going on while taking “part-time” jobs to help regular people in trouble.

When I’m in the mood for something more serious, I watch Law&Order and CSIs, but not very often. I also watch cartoon. I love watching The Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Naruto, Bleach, etc. I watch American Gladiator, and I will watch Olympics this coming August. Oh, and I also watch HGTV and Food Network for some ideas. Hmm, that’s all the TV shows I watch, that I can think of now.

Poor Olga

Posted on: July 2, 2008

Just finished watching both Wipeout and JGS (I survived a Japanese game show), hillarious as expected. Although the wipeout’s contestants on this week couldn’t break the time record of last week’s players on the last round. On JGS, I’m dissapointed that Olga was elimitated (not that I wanted Darcy to be elimitated either). I think Donell should’ve listened to Olga and put Meaghan and Mary to face off. Meaghan did a poor job on the human-crane game because she was nervous and let the nerve and emotion consume her. And in my opinion, Olga is a stronger player than her. Olga and Donell are the loudest, but the strongest contender on Green Monkey team. Too bad the coalition is over now.

As usual, during break, I switch channels and see if there’s anything else interesting on TV. And I found out that TBS airs 2 hours of Family Guy. I was torn between watching the japanese game show or family guy. I had a thought to just watch family guy instead because I can watch JGS online at abc.go.com (like I did with The Mole). But I ended up watching more JGS because I was curious.
