4.0 out of 5 stars schizophrenic, 16 Oct 2013
This review is from: Burn Notice - Season 6 [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
I have all the series and looked forward to this latest one.
The series starts off very strongly with Fiona in prison and the rest of the team outside trying to find a way to have her released. These half a dozen episodes are great, and having a parallel story about her prison life gave the episodes far greater reach and depth. However, all good things change, and the next 6 episodes take on the same sheen as the older series with various strange clients with strange needs.This peaks with an unexpected death, before the last 6 episodes which are, frankly a re-tread of previous episodes that return Westen to the kind of episodes we have seen before .
I was very disappointed that such a strong start would be squandered in this way.
How many times can we watch Westen go through the same rig-a-marole of getting pushed into doing something in order to.....satisfy someone else?
I am not sure that the writers can keep this going for much longer, as it is clearly falling into a seen-it-all-before mode.
So a split rating of 5 for the strong beginning and 3 for the increasing weakness and total implausibility in the later episodes, comes out to a 4.
