Burn Notice

Burn Notice


Spies don't get fired ... they get burned.


Secret agent Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) just received a burn notice -- a statement that a spy is unreliable and has been effectively fired -- for unknown reasons. Now, Westen must find out who issued the notice and why they did it without being able to use the resources and contacts he once had at his disposal.

While searching for answers, Weston receives help from Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar), an ex-IRA agent and Michael's ex-girlfriend and Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell), a former Navy SEAL skilled in surveillance. And then there's Madeline (Sharon Gless), Westen's overbearing mother who is unaware of her son's profession.

Created and written by Matt Nix, Burn Notice combines a mixture of action and a fresh sense of humor that combined result in a new breed of spy.

This Show Is Made of AwesomeRating: 15 likes, 0 dislikes

With nothing else but repeats on on Thursdays during the summer, I decided to give Burn Notice a try. The "Pilot" episode was awesome -- fast-paced witty dialog, interesting characters, and a great plot. And after that episode, I was hooked. Each episode combines humor and action in a way that is unlike any other show on television. Read more

Burn Notice Season 5: Burn Notice is Hotter then E...Rating: 0 likes, 1 dislikes

With the new season of Burn Notice in full swing, it seems like Mike is in hot water with the CIA since the death of Max, his old CIA handler. However, with Agent Pearce on the investigation, Michael seems to have this under wraps with no problems at all. There is one problem though. Agent Pearce doesn’t give up that eaily. There are many different actions that Michael is going to have to take to avoid this woman’s radar. Luckily, his friends Sam, Fiona and Jesse are there to save his skin while he tries to uncover the person or people who framed him for the murder of Max. This season has proven that Burn Notice isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. This is often the top of discussion because of the sudden twists and thrills. Read more

Westen mentions having some guys in Miami that can help with the mission. Burke is uninterested. Westen inquires about the next job, which Burke vaguely skirts around. They enter into a run-down building and meet with a new guy who Burke is considering for his next job. The man hardballs Burke, saying that his price has gone up after learning about the company Burke wants to strike. Burke coldly warns the man not to do this. The man is not intimidated, pulling a knife. Westen jumps into action and pushes the man down on the table, sticking his knife into the table. The man tells Burke he wants something extra. Burke obliges, by sticking the knife into his belly. Burke then looks at Westen, a huge smile on his face, and asks his about his guys in Miami... read more.
