This episode should just have been called “Cody’s End”. And it’s also my end, and the end for an awful lot of viewers. The show is ostensibly a behind-the-scenes look about “who’s moving on”.

But we all knew all that going into the show, and we were able to see them pick and choose the story line they wanted to portray.

The “Glacial Downfall” episode was the last “adventure” with Cody Lundin. Anybody who was hoping to see any reason for his firing was sorely disappointed. If anything, there was plenty there if you were looking for a reason to fire Joe Teti, but I guess that sort of idiocy was what the producers were looking to continue.

What I found most interesting was that Joe’s tirades against Cody were so typical of what we barefooters have to put up with.

“Deadly Dunes” was the second-to-last episode with Cody Lundin. It was actually quite a fun watch, even though it did still have a few frustrating bits of misinformation in it, and the usual arrogance of Joe Teti.

“Desert Dunes” took place in Oman, in the Arabian Desert.

We continue our countdown to the end of Dual Survival as we knew it, or at least to the end of why any barefooter would care about the show.

Today I’ll look at the second part of “No End in Sight,” in which Cody and Joe are wandering through the jungle in Sri Lanka.

Normally, about here I’d let you know what new show is on tonight, but “Misty Mountain Drop” was the final episode of this season (Season 3). There are some reruns tonight (at 6, 7, & 8, EDT).

As far as the executive producer of the series is concerned, Season 3 did very, very well in the ratings. I’d guess that that means we’ll see a Season 4 next year.

So now, here are my thoughts on last weeks show, “Misty Mountain Drop”.

Dual Survival: Twin Peaks

First, don’t forget that there will be a new episode of Dual Survival on tonight at 9:00pm EST. The new one is titled “Meltdown” and the description says:

Joe and Cody dodge hippos and elephants as they search for water and shelter in Zambia.

There is also sad and very unfortunate news. One of Joe Teti’s best friends was killed yesterday morning in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles. Mike Donatelli, along with two others, was involved in a military-style reality show for the Discovery Channel when the crash occurred. Mike was a former Army Ranger, Green Beret, and Delta Force Ops Sgt. He left behind a wife and two children. There are news stories here, 3 dead in helicopter crash on Discovery Channel reality TV set and Reality Show Cast Member Who Died in Crash Was Special Forces Veteran. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all his friends and family.

Now, on to “Twin Peaks” (and you can catch the rerun of it at 8:00pm EST just before the new episode).
