Returning for its fifth season and promising more suspense, more drama and more action than ever before. Burn Notice stars Jeffrey Donovan as Micheal Westen, a blacklisted spy who winds up stranded in blue-sky Miami. While technically still considered a civilian, Michael Westen works with the CIA to investigate and dismantle the secret organisation that burned him; all the while Michael searches for answers to the questions that have plagued him ever since his arrival in Miami: Who gave the order to burn him, and why?
Six months have passed since he was welcomed back into the fold, and still Michael finds himself no closer to getting the answers he seeks. Beside him, as always, is the beautifully hot tempered, bomb-happy Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar); our favourite Mojito-loving retired Navy Seal, Sam (Bruce Campbell); and the team’s newest addition Jesse (Coby Bell), who’s quickly getting used to his new life in Miami. Sharon Gless stars in her Emmy®-nominated role as Michael’s sharp-tongued mother Madeline.

Whatever, in the depths of winter, this series, as well as serving up some fine acting, writing, directing and production of stories surrounding the exploits of 'burnt' spy Michael Westen-played with naturalistic aplomb by Jeffrey Donovan alongside equally fine supporting acts by Gabrielle Anwar, Bruce Campbell, Sharon Gless and Paul Tei-delivers some welcome Miami warmth and sunshine to one's living room.
That is one thing that stands out about this show-the excellent use of real Miami locations in which the drama is set. It adds to the authenticity.
As for the drama, well, the main characters are warm,likeable, well intentioned people-which helps draw you in and feel real concern for the various predicaments they encounter...Predicaments that, it has to be said, bear more than a passing resemblance to those encountered by Jim Rockford.
Indeed, think 'The Rockford Files', crossed with 'Mission Impossible', shaken and stirred with a dash of 'James Bond', all set in modern day Miami, and you will be some way to getting what this show is about. Above all, though it delves in to a variety of, shall we say, less pleasant aspects of human behaviour, it is ultimately a positive, uplifting show where one is left in no doubt that, ultimately, right and good will prevail.
Burn Notice is the story of a C.I.A. spy who gets fired and left without support, he gets a "Burn Notice"
Whilst he tries to find out what has happened he has time on his hands and so gets sucked into helping people with desperate problems
using all of his spy craft.
He is assisted by a reformed I.R.A. terrorist Fiona, (Also his girlfriend) and a former Navy Seal Sam Axe.
The show is genuinely funny with clever stories plus the ongoing drive to find out why he was fired.
Burn Notice is well written and Jeffrey Donovan is charismatic as Michael.
That also means the review will spoil the end of season 4. There’s no way around that.
Season 5 picks up a few months after Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) has gotten back into the good graces of the CIA. While he’s not fully back on active duty, he’s been involved in missions to help take down the organization that burned him. It looks like they’ve got them all, but something doesn’t feel right to Michael. His friends Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell), Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), and Jesse (Coby Bell) tell him to let it go. Even his mom Madeline (Sharon Gless) thinks it’s a chapter he can put behind him.
And then his contact at the CIA is murdered and Michael is being framed for it. Obviously, someone isn’t quite done with him.
Meanwhile, Michael still reluctantly takes on cases to help people who are being threatened by dangerous criminals. Over the course of the season, Michael and his friends take on human traffickers, a loan shark, corporate spies turned hostage takers, and a diplomat dealing in illegal blood diamonds.
Okay, so for the most part this season feels like business as usual. Michael and his friends go up against dangerous criminals and use their spy skills to take them down against overwhelming odds. The little tweak is that now Michael is at least working unofficially with the CIA, something he’s been working for since season 1. Frankly, the story of his burn was becoming so convoluted; it needed a reset and somewhere new to go, so I’m glad they took this step.Read more ›
Disc itself is absolutely fine - played well, casing is fine. Glad we bought it
But about the 5th or 6th episode,things started to get back to the level of previous series, and the last 4 episodes, were very good.
The emergence of a great villain had a terrific boost , such that a real cliffhanger ends the series 5.
Roll on 6!
