Apparently, I’ve been remiss in mentioning how great USA’s “Burn Notice” enough times for at least one very important blog poster.
If you haven’t seen this campy drama about a secret agent who is trying to figure out why he got ousted from service – and who is out to get him – you are really missing out on a treat.
When spies get fired, they don’t get a letter from human resources, they get a “burn notice.” Jeffrey Donovan (“Touching Evil,” “Hitch”) stars as Michael Westen, a spy who has been burned and is investigating who did it to him and why.
Gabrielle Anwar (“The Tudors,” “Scent of A Woman”) stars as his ex-lover and IRA spy Fiona, Bruce Campbell (“Evil Dead,” Army of Darkness”) as Michael’s only friend and former spy himself, Sam, and Sharon Gless (“Queer as Folk,” “Cagney & Lacey”) as Madeline, Michael’s hypochondriac mother.
Stuck in his hometown of Miami, a place he never wanted to return to, Michael Westen is unable to utilize his normal contacts. He needs to stay under the spy network radar, so he puts his Special Ops training to use to help those who the police can’t or won’t, in order to fund his ongoing personal investigation.
TRAILER FOR “BURN NOTICE”
My favorite character is Sam, played by Bruce Campbell, who has wowed us over the years with his films , but especially his starring role in “The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.” That series was produced by Carlton Cuse, who now helps head up a little series called “Lost.”’
But back to “Burn Notice,” which airs at 10 p.m. Thursdays on USA. Yes it’s been renewed for a second season and will be coming back summer of 08.
Season 1 ends with a two-hour season finale on September 20th starting at 9 p.m. on USA.
