Well, the open calls for new season of I survived Japanes Game Show has been wrapped up in LA, the last stop for the audition. I didn’t go though, I decided I’m not a reality show type of material because I’m so boring 😆 I do want to participate on the games, just no cameras when I’m making fool of myself please 😛 So yeah, no more auditions available for the show, but I’m not sure if they still accept application through email. But if you just found out about this and wanted to apply, you can always send the application email. Click here for the email address and other information. Also, there is a link to apply for wipeout.

Other than that, Burn Notice is back! Just watched it yesterday on USAnetwork.com/burnnotice. Continuing the last episode, Carla said that it wasn’t her (or her men) who tried to blow Michael up, so Michael was assigned to find out who wanted him dead. All new Burn Notice episode on Thursday, Jan 29 on 10 pm EST.

Good luck and Hai~Majide!!

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 🙂

Tonight on Wipeout: Wipey Award! The best of wipeout moments over the past few weeks, with categories like: Best Dance, Best Romance, and many more. Even though it wasn’t really a new episode, but it was really funny. It’s the funniest wipeout moments. Miss it? Watch it online at abc.com

Right now, it’s Japanese Game Show. In this finale, the players competed individually, no more green monkey or yellow penguin. And every challenge was an elimination challenge, the player with the lowest score or longest time would have to say sayonara to $250,000. Read to find out who won Japanese Game Show Finale. 🙂

*Update: ABC is casting for 2nd season of I Survived Japanese Game Show & Wipeout, click here to find out how.

Anyway, for those of you who wondered what does Majide really means, you’re not alone. Someone asked that on Yahoo! Answers, and out of many answers, I quoted these 2, since I think they are the best answers:

はい (read: ha i) means yes.

majide is soured from (真面目に)  マジで (read: ma ji de)、マジ (read:ma ji)  means true,real.

本当に=ほんとうに (read: hon to ni?) means “is it really?” so you can replace majide with hotoni. majide= hotoni.
hai majide=”Yes, really””Is it true?” or “no kidding”.

The other one is:

The Japanese translation of Majide (マジで?) is “seriously?!” in an inquisitive, yet exclamatory sense, meaning roughly “you have to be crazy.” The Japanese characters for the on-screen logo shown on the wall in the program read “Honki de” (本気で) (meaning simply “Seriously” or “Wholeheartedly”).

OMG, this week’s Japanese Game Show is sooooooooo funny! They had to cross dress. Meaghan wearing a tux was okay. But Donnell (I’ve spelled his name wrong all along) and Andrew had to wear a gown! And in the middle of the game, Andrew’s gown fell down showing his hairy chest. The game was pretty simple, but the spinning chair was so fast. Anyways, Meaghan screwed up by putting the heart lock on her back (maybe she was too dizzy), and after that she took the key and dropped it causing Green Monkey team to lose a good amount of time. BUT, in the end Green Monkey team won! I’m so happy for them. 😛

This week’s reward is better than previous ones. Meaghan and Donnell got to stay in the most luxurious and modern hotel (priced at $12k a night). They got to ride in a limo, get a room w/ private chef and waiters, private swimming pool and get to order whatever they want – gourmet of course. And Meaghan ordered Pizza (yes, you read it right) and got it! 🙂 I don’t blame Meaghan for ordering a Pizza. As much as I like eating any type of cuisine, eating the same style of food for weeks will bore anyone. I so want to trade place with any of them.

On the other hand, Yellow Penguin finally lost after winning 4x in a row. They had to spend a night at a capsule hotel, where everything is tiny. Bento box was small and cold. And the capsule room was tight and confined, and it’s more like corpse’s chamber at morgues. They were also given nurse-like pjs.

Of course, Justin and Andrew were pretty smart. They made their own decision, because they didn’t want to face each other. So against Belinda’s will, Andrew volunteered himself and dragged Belinda down to elimination game. The game was changing clothes, and there was a special guest who played the game with them. They were told that that guy was the champion of fast clothes changing. But he actually got a twin 😆 so he always won. Belinda had better experince in changing clothes, so she won. Time for Andrew to go.

So next week 2 people on each team, one guy and one girl. Apparently next week is the final episode, so out of those 4 people one will win $250,000.

Today’s wipeout players didn’t do so good on the wipeout zone. 3 of them took more than 16 minutes to complete, compared to the average 8 minutes from the previous weeks’ players. Well, this week, the wipeout zone was made more challenging. The pool was filled with foams, so when the players fell down, they had to swim through the foam pool.

On other news, the winners of the Burn Notice book, The Fix, had been announced on Tod Goldberg’s blog. No, I wasn’t one of the lucky winners 😥 I guess I have to buy the book by myself. To see the winners of the contest, visit Tod’s blog here.

Betrayal

Posted on: July 22, 2008

As I thought, it’s not possible for Green Monkey team to compete with only 2 people. Yellow Penguin team had to let go one of their member to Green Monkey. Donell automatically wanted Justin because they were buddies. Justin wanted to move over too, but he knew that Yellow Penguin team was stronger so it was better to stick to the winning team. In the end, Cathy volunteered to move to Green Monkey team because she knew she had been performing badly in the past few weeks.

Tonight’s japanese game show was so funny! Poor Cathy and Belinda, they’re suspended in the air with their teammates throwing balls at them, and their opponents pulling them from side to side. 

Belinda had the upper hand, her weight played important role because Meaghan wasn’t strong enough to pull her around. Also, as Justin pointed out, Donell and Meaghan swing Belinda from left to right in almost perfect rhythm. It’s so predictable that Andrew and Justin didn’t have too much of a hard time aiming her. Moreover, Belinda was smart, she helped her team by catching the balls that missed and stick it to herself.

Since Yellow Penguin team was first, Justin and Andrew had the advantage of making a strategy by watching Green Monkey. They only pulled Cathy quickly after Donell threw the ball so Green Monkey team didn’t get as many balls as they could. Meaghan didn’t do a good job either because she was having a hard time aiming. 😦 Boohoo, Green Monkey team lost by huge number: 24 to 7. They had to learn how to make Mochi and then they had to make 100 of them. But they got to vent their frustrations by hammering the mochi rice. On the other side, Yellow Penguin team got to go to an ancient shrine to received blessing and learn archery.

Donell and Cathy wanted Meaghan to go to elimination round because she did the worst, but Meaghan tried to work around it. But both Donell and Cathy didn’t want to go to elimination round. Cathy thought Donell did a bad job because as a football player he should’ve performed much better, and Cathy defended herself that there was nothing that she could do if there were no balls around her to catch. According to the game rules, if Green Monkey team couldn’t decide who to go to elimination round, Yellow Penguin team got to choose the 2 people. Donell was confident that he’s not going down because he was sure that he Andrew and Justin were in ‘silent’ alliance. Meanwhile Meaghan lobbied Andrew of Yellow Penguin to put Donell into elimination round, and Andrew agreed.

Since Green Monkey was undecided (like Meaghan wanted), Yellow Penguin choose Donell and Cathy. Poor Donell, he believed so much in Justin and Andrew, but he was betrayed because afterall he’s the biggest competition. Once Donell’s gone, no more guys in Green Monkey team, and it’s good news for Yellow Penguin. Andrew clearly said he didn’t care Meaghan or Cathy as long as Donell was on chopping block. I couldn’t help but think that it’s Donell’s karma. He betrayed Olga, who trusted him, eliminated few weeks ago (read here for story). Now he was betrayed by Justin and Andrew, who he thought would save his ass. I’m not a believer in Karma, but this is mind blowingly obvious.

The elimination game was simple but still funny. The players had to find 3 solid doors out of 7 to bump into. Poor Cathy, the first 3 doors she chose was a fake one so she wasted a lot of time getting smacked by crazy gorilla and panda. Pissed Donnell was so focused he finished the game very quickly. So it’s time for Cathy to say Sayonara.

Well, next week won’t be a good week for Green Monkey team. I don’t know if Donell would find out that Meaghan betrayed him too, but he’d be pissed at Justin and Andrew for sure. Anyways, on the preview of next week’s episode, looks like a funny game is in store. Can’t wait to watch it. 🙂

Tonight’s wipeout is great; more balls than ever before. Also tonight’s wipeout zone was made tougher because the spinner is wrapped in plastic allowing only 2 sides to jump into and the players had to crawl to the other end and use the other opening to exit. In today’s wipeout, the only girl left is the runner up. She did a wonderful job, and only lost for less than 1 minute.

Poor Mary

Posted on: July 15, 2008

In today’s Japanese Game Show, the players have to dress like babies: diapers, hat, and pacifier! I laughed so hard, but I feel bad for them at the same time. They look hilariously silly and hideous. Anyways, this week’s challenge is similar to Wipeout’s Dizzy Dummy. Basically some players are spun around, and after that they have to walk in a series of obstacles.

Green Monkey team lost again 😦 they’ll be down to 2 people next week. Mary did a good job, but based on Meaghan’s immunity pact, Donell and Mary should go to elimination. Donell used up this dilemma to make Mary break the pact. But Mary couldn’t make herself to bail, so they had to face off in chicken-egg game. They had to oil themselves and cover themselves in feather before breaking eggs with their butt. Mary managed to pop 10 eggs, while Donell got 11 before time ends, so Donell won. I kinda wanted Mary to win because she did the best, and Donell gave the worst performance on the main challenge. I don’t know how Green Monkey will compete next week with only Meaghan and Donell 😐

The Yellow Penguin team got a treat to go to a Japanese village to watch soba (japanese style noodle) making, and they get to eat the home-made soba. Cathy, who afraid of foreign stuff, hesitated to eat, as usual. On the other hand, Green Monkey had to work de-shelling clams. Poor guys.

This week on wipeout: no one seemed to be able to pass the last obstacle on the first round. Everyone bounced off that wall. I think the wall have technical issue. I love this week’s 3rd round, the dreadmill. The contestants have to use flipper flop while running in accelerating dreadmill. In the meanwhile, there are some dolphins, crabs, lobsters, and floating balloons that hinder their way. They have to stay as long as they can in the dreadmill before they got booted into a foam pool.
