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.

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
