Posts Tagged ‘opening ceremony

Few weeks ago, I wrote a post about the cancelled tv shows where I listed the scheduled air date for shows that are on their season finale. Crusoe only has 1 season with 13 episodes. From what I knew, there was supposed to be a Crusoe tonight and the last 3 episodes will air on 2009. However, I was surprised when I tuned in to NBC and found Beijing Olympics 2008 opening ceremony instead. So I checked with NBC.com, and it appeared that they’ve changed their schedule quite a bit. So here’s the updated schedule for the last 4 episodes of Crusoe:

‘Smoke and Mirrors’ airs Saturday, 1/10 at 8pm ET
‘The Hunting Party’ airs Saturday, 1/17 at 8pm ET
‘The Traveler’ airs Saturday, 1/24 at 8pm ET
‘The Return’ airs Saturday, 1/31 at 8pm ET

Well, I guess it never hurts to re-watch the opening ceremony again. It was spectacular.

Well, technically it has started few hours ago, but since I just finished watching the ceremony, it’s officially started now for me 😛 I missed the first 1.5 hour (so I missed the ancient China part and many beautiful chinese girls dancing 😦 ). Anyway, from the portion that I saw, the ceremony was breath-takingly superb. They really take full advantage of the stadium (that’s specially designed for this event), the lightning, the customs, and the performers to make a great show.

Just a side note, from the number of fireworks used in the ceremony, it’s no wonder that the city is full of smog. I mean seriously, fireworks are bad for atmosphere and toxic to living being. And when used excessively, the danger multiples. Yes, I know they are pretty and spectacular, but they are a threat to the environment. 🙄 I’m not an environmental activist, but I am aware and have some knowledge about what is bad for our planet.

Okay, I’ll rest my case about fireworks now. So back to the topic: the Olympic Games 2008 has officially started! 🙂 Let the games begin and may the best players win! 😀

Just finished watching online 5th episode of Burn Notice (aired last night). Michael found out Carla’s little hideout and planned to get more information. From the “simple” surveillance camera that Michael implanted, Sam figured out a loophole on the security system – an opportunity for Michael to sneak in. So they went, but when Michael was just few steps away from the building, he got a call for his side job so he had to bail. I knew that he’d lost his chance, and he did. The second time, he got in, but Carla already left a present for him, a video message with him on it, a Champagne, crossword message, and some files (I assume it’s a new job OR Carla’s surveillance showing Michael’s activities or something). I wonder why Michael never use a disguise. I know he won’t look cool anymore, but disguising is part of spy work, isn’t it?

Michael’s side job this week is to help Trevor to get him out of a robbery job. He wanted to bail from the job because he promised his son he wouldn’t be doing it anymore, but he couldn’t run out of town because he was on parole. The scheme that Michael developed for this job was very good and smooth, I really like the this week’s story.

Anyway, Olympic’s opening ceremony will be on NBC 7:30 pm EST. The event actually already started this morning in China, there are some amazing pictures of it on msn.com. So I went to youtube to see if anyone uploaded it already, and someone did, but the video was removed saying “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by a third party.” I can understand NBC want to protect their rights of showing the ceremony exclusively in US tonight, but I hope (crossing my finger) after they finish airing it, they’ll let the video on Youtube for people who miss it on TV and don’t have DVR.
