Covert intelligence operative Michael Westen has been punched, kicked, chocked and shot. Now he’s being burned, and someone’s going to pay. When Michael receives a “burn notice”, blacklisting him from the intelligence community and compromising his very identity, he must track down a faceless nemesis without getting himself killed in the process. Meanwhile, Michael is forced to double as a private investigator on the dangerous streets of Miami in order to survive. Fully loaded with sly humour, Burn Notice is a fresh spin on the spy genre with plenty of precarious twists to keep you guessing and enough explosive action to keep you rivited.

Burn Notice is fantastic. With its wry humour and explanatory voiceovers it's a joy to watch. The premise is simple: each week Michael Westen, tries to find out who burnt him; that is, got him fired from the spy business. Unfortunately to do so he needs contacts and cash, neither of which are forthcoming. So Westen is forced to take on cases that will benefit from his spy skills; cases where the authorities can't or won't get involved, or where clients have been framed. These are often cases undertaken for very little money but underneath it all, Westen is a nice guy, and besides, he needs whatever he can get his hands on; sometimes the reward is the form of information or favours that are a suitable substitute.

During each episode he gives his wry observations on the spy game (a broken home is a good training ground for a spy since you're used to getting knocked around and never get homesick) and demonstrates how to make practical use of those spy skills, be it making a decoy "bomb" that looks real but has no explosive, setting up a perimeter alarm with a floodlight and a mobile phone, or simply getting rid of the next door drug dealer. It's a bit like MacGyver but without the self-righteousness.

Westen is aided and abetted by ex-girlfriend Fiona - ex-IRA, bounty hunter, sexy as hell and hard as nails - and friend Sam Axe - (Bruce Campbell, brilliant as always) ex-spy with a penchant for sunbathing at a pool with a decent bar. Sam is working both sides, informing on Westen to the Feds and using this connection to set the Feds on bad guys Westen identifies during his work.

Format: DVD
Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) is a spy and very good at it. Or at least he was. One day, while in the middle of a covert mission, he is burned. For us civilians, that means fired. Barely managing to escape with his life, he passes out and wakes up in Miami with no money and no idea what happened. Worse yet, Miami is him home town, and that means dealing with his Mother (Sharon Gless) who he hasn't seen in years.

Michael is determined to figure out who did this to him and why so he can get back to work. So while he slowly gathers pieces of that puzzle, he picks up odd jobs as a private investigator. When he needs back up (which is often), he teams up with ex-IRA weapons smuggler (and ex-girlfriend) Fiona (Gabriella Anwar) and friend and former FBI agent (who is reporting on him to the FBI) Sam (Bruce Campbell).

And together the three of them take on plenty of hard cases. They deal with kidnapped sons, drug dealers, smugglers, arms dealers, and assassins. Meanwhile, Michael is piecing together why he was burned. All this leads to a gripping and explosive season finale with a great cliffhanger.

I passed on this show originally, but based on the buzz gave it a chance. I'm glad I did. This show manages to fix suspense, action, and humor in the perfect dose. Michael, Fiona, and Sam have excellent chemistry, which makes their jokes better. And Michael's narration adds some fun, too.

But yes, this show is about the action. Every episode leaves me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out how they will deal with the problem. There are lots of explosions and shooting. This is a show for those who love spy stories.

I will admit, the show took me a few episodes to fully appreciate.

'Burn Notice' follows the fortunes (and lack thereof) of Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan)- a covert operative for the United States government who suddenly finds himself without a job thanks to a burn notice- an order blacklisting him in the intelligence community. Stranded in Miami, Michael has to take various odd jobs as a bodyguard, private detective and thief (amongst others) in order to make ends meet while trying to find out who is responsible for getting him burned. In this quest, he has help from ex-Navy SEAL Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell), former lover and ex-IRA member Fiona Glenanne (Gabrielle Anwar) and- in some instances- his mother Maddy (Sharon Gless).

'Burn Notice' is a brilliant take on the spy genre- it incorporates all of the intrigue and action you would expect a series about espionage to have, as well as introducing memorable characters and a dash of humour to the proceedings. I have yet to meet anyone who hasn't enjoyed it, and will still give my highest recommendation to anyone else.

I bought this box set on the recommendation of an American friend. I hadn't even heard of it but as we seem to share remarkably similar tastes in both TV programmes and music, I took a chance on it. How much did I enjoy it? I got through the entire series in two days and then went searching on the net immediately to see when Series 2 is coming out!
There are many things to love about this series - the characters, the humour, the imaginative methods that our hero employs and the fact that you can't predict where the series will go. The writers have a great knack of constantly finding new twists and directions to take it.
Two things did annoy me at first - the irritating mother played by Sharon Gless and the most appalling Irish accent adopted by Gabrielle Anwar. Mercifully, the former soon mellowed considerably and the accent was dropped after the first episode in favour of a local one (for plot reasons).
Now I can't wait for Series 2 on DVD and it's great to hear that Series 3 has been commissioned.
So go on, do yourself a favour - take a chance on this series, especially now the price has dropped. You won't regret it!
