Elsewhere, I love Madeline. As I mentioned earlier this year, she reminds me so much of my own mom that I find myself calling home within 12 hours of watching an episode.
This week, Madeline did such a great job of boiling Michael and Jesse’s issue down to its essence of a family fight. I'm sure my brother and I got the same lecture she gave them when we were growing up and got into brawls.
You have to love her straightforward take of “I am not talking about closure, just moving on with it.” You can agree or disagree with her methods, but seeing Michael and Jesse smiling at each other at the end of the episode made it all worthwhile. »

In the wake of the Burn Notice summer cliff-hanger, "Eyes Open" started the fall season off with a reminder that getting shot is painful.
While I understand that Michael was on the wrong side of a gun, and the writers wanted to keep a realistic feel to his injuries, I'm concerned that they're going to drag out this recovery out way longer than is necessary. Or at least interesting.
In this episode, for instance, almost every scene that showed Michael also focused on the fact that he was shot and recovering. I actually tuned out the repeated discussion between Madeline and Fiona after the second time I heard it.
Hey, did you hear that Michael Westen was shot?!?
I'm happy to say that one of the questions I asked about the overall season finally was answered. The show explained how someone just strolled up and took the briefcase after the »

Chicago – USA’s spy hit “Burn Notice” returns tonight, November 11th, 2010 with another solidly-entertaining mix of the cool, the comedy, and the crazy. The middle of season four ended with Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) crossing paths with two lunatics (Michael Rooker & Robert Patrick), being given a list that was the key to destroying the people who burned him, getting into an intense shoot-out, and a horrible car accident. Yes, there are a lot of loose ends to tie up.
Television Rating: 3.5/5.0
When “Burn Notice” is actively pursuing and detailing Michael’s spy past and future — the people who burned him and how he can get revenge while also staying alive — it’s a fantastic spy thriller. No program does this kind of thing better (and several recently, including NBC’s “Undercovers” and even Fox’s “Human Target,” have tried) and I wish the show would commit fully to ditching the »

Psych returns to USA tonight at 10/9c, and you don’t want to miss this episode. Not only do we get the return of Cary Elwes, but the show has saved a very strong episode for its November comeback. Though a huge fan of the show, a few episodes this season have not, Imho, been quite up to what we as fans have come to expect.
There are other reasons that you definitely do not want to miss this episode, no matter what, and I’ll just leave it at that, although the following interview sort of gives things away. James Roday and Dule Hill were on call for a press Q & A recently, and it was the wild time it always is.
In the season premiere “Extradition II,” Shawn and Gus return to Vancouver to visit their old nemesis Despereaux (returning guest star Cary Elwes) in prison at the felon’s request, »

There have been more than a dozen successful TV spinoffs launched over the past couple of decades. And there has also been "Sunset Division."
If you don't remember that little gem, a would-be offshoot of "Crossing Jordan," you're not alone. But it was once a real-live possibility to make NBC's schedule for the 2003-04 season, and viewers got a tease of it in April 2003, when "Jordan" followed Woody Hoyt (Jerry O'Connell) to Los Angeles on a case.
The show didn't go forward from there, however, which makes it one of those would-be spinoffs that actually got a trial on-air run as part of their parent shows but never advanced beyond that. Six of them, including Woody's ill-fated adventures in L.A., from the last 15 years are below.
One caveat: We're not talking about proposed shows, a la the long-discussed "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" spinoff "Ripper," that have never put any action on film, »
The last time we saw Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan), the ex-spy turned do-gooder was crawling around some car wreckage looking half-dead from a gunshot wound. Chances are he’s going to survive that just fine. Call it a hunch. The second half of the USA Network’s “Burn Notice” Season 4 returns this November 11th at 9/8 with all-new episodes. Check out this ridiculously cool promo for the show’s return. No new footage, but it does pretty much sums up the show in one 30-second spot. »
This just in: the show's main character survives. He also returns with new adventures on November 11.
While the following preview doesn't offer any new scenes, it should get fans in the mood for more Michael, Sam, Fiona and company, as they finish off the season that started this summer with six new fall/winter episodes. Get primed for them now:

Our sneak peek of Universal’s recent releases continues with season six of the Fox medical drama House. Let’s take a look inside the next volume of happenings at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital…
I’ll admit that when it first started, I was a big fan of House. Midway through the first season, I was introduced to it by a friend and followed it all the way through season two. However, by mid-season three, the show had rubbed me the wrong way one too many times, and I bid adieu. I haven’t watched it since. When I got the chance to review this season, I wondered: had it changed? Was House still so insufferable that I could no longer root for him as the show’s protagonist? Was the show still having all the major female characters fall over him? Was it still carrying the soapy plotlines »

Despite some slight apprehension after watching the most recent trailer -- the one with Steve Buscemi as Tony Soprano in period dress -- there are few upcoming series that have me more excited than HBO's Boardwalk Empire. That happens when the pilot is directed by Martin Scorsese, written and created by Sopranos stalwart Terence Winter, and stars Buscemi, Michael Shannon, Michael Pitt and Michael K. Williams (though where is Michael Weston when you need him?). Well, the news just came into Movieline HQ: The series will premiere on Sunday, September 19 at 9pm, meaning Mad Men will have some testosterone-y company on your DVR. »
“Covert Affairs”, from creators/writers Chris Ord and Matt Corman, is exactly how you would imagine the CIA from the USA Network’s other spy show, “Burn Notice” is like. You know, the place where Michael Weston is always trying to get back into after being burned, but we never actually see it? I would imagine it’s something along the lines of “Covert Affairs”, only less shiny. Speaking of “Burn Notice”, how about a cross-over episode with “Covert Affairs”, guys? Think about the possibilities. Until then, we’ll just have to be satisfied with Piper Perabo, which, I’m happy to say, is a pretty good consolation prize. Perabo plays rookie CIA agent Annie Walker, a world-traveler and linguistics prodigy who is brought into the fold months before her training on the CIA’s secret compound The Farm is completed. Annie is given a not-all-that-convincing reason for her premature »
What MacGyver was for the 1980.s, Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) is for the 2010.s. With just enough cheesy dialogue and action, USA's "Burn Notice" is quite the spy adventure. In the second episode of season four, Michael takes it upon himself to save Jesse Garcia (Coby Bell), the counter-intelligence spy he accidentally burned last episode. Both Sam (Bruce Campbell) and Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) are against Michael getting involved but they help him out anyway. Fiona and Michael scout out Jesse.s office and place a tap on Jesse.s line, all while staging the break-in as a disgruntled laid off-worker. The tap comes to be useful as Michael and Sam overhear Jesse setting up a meeting with a contact »

I will admit, as much of a fan as I am of the USA Network’s “Burn Notice”, the Season 4 premiere last week left me a little … bleh. Maybe it’s just me, but I was expecting more of a game changer of a premiere after last year’s season finale, which found leading man Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) being walked through a black site detainment facility with a hoodie over his head. Oh sure, the “library” that he finds himself in towards the end of the episode (and where the Season 4 premiere picks right up at) left me perplexed, but I had assumed it was just some mind game by his captors. Turns out, not so much. It’s just more of “Management” trying to convince him to work for them. Eh. Then, before the first act is even over, Michael’s back in Miami doing what he’s »
While most shows are on hiatus for the summer, everyone’s favorite (former) spy is back – as Burn Notice returns this Thursday for the season four premiere. After three months, fans finally get to find out what happened to Michael Weston after being captured by some less than friendly figures.
The season four premiere of Burn Notice picks up shortly after the events in the third season finale. With the mysterious Simon back behind bars and management’s head-honcho returned safely to his desk, new adventures face Michael as he focuses on tracking down those responsible for Simon’s escape.
Although, this time, Michael will have more than Fiona and Sam to back him up. With Coby Bell and Robert Wisdom guest starring for the fourth season, the new characters will prove to be extremely beneficial to Michael…

The last time we saw Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan), he was being led through a dark, dank hallway with a bag over his head. Uh oh. Our boy is going to be tortured! Or worst, thrown into a dark hole and left for all of eternity! As it turns out, not so much. Michael’s “cell” wasn’t all that uncomfortable, actually, so what the hell is going on? Check out how Season 4 begins (hint: it takes place exactly after the Season 3 finale) with two sneak peek clips and two promos that show Michael already back in the swing of things and blowing stuff up with badass girlfriend Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) and trustworthy sidekick Sam (Bruce Campbell). “Burn Notice” Season 4 begins next week on June 3 on the USA Network with the episode “Friends and Enemies”. »
Lisa Edelstein has revealed that she can relate to her House character Cuddy. Speaking to What's On TV, Edelstein explained that she understands why Cuddy is struggling to choose between Lucas (Michael Weston) and House (Hugh Laurie). "To me, Lucas is one of those relationships you have when you just wish you could have a normal relationship," she said. "She has a child now, so she really needs somebody who's actually going to show up for her and be consistent and show up for her child and be consistent and be good in bed and easy to be around and make her laugh once in a while.

I like Matt Nix. His other show, Burn Notice, doesn't try to reinvent the wheel on spy procedurals, but it provides nice post-modern touches on the genre: Its hero, Michael Weston, is likable, despite his best efforts to appear otherwise, and he narrates each episode with do-it-yourself spy tips and thoughts on the show's larger mythology. Nix's latest project, The Good Guys, premiered last night on Fox (the show will return on June 7), and like Burn Notice, it's not super complicated or densely layered.... More >> »

Lisa Edelstein has revealed that she likes fans having such strong feelings about her love triangle on House. Edelstein's character Cuddy is currently in a relationship with Lucas (Michael Weston), although many viewers want a romance between Cuddy and House (Hugh Laurie). "I think it's fantastic that people are so passionate about it," Edelstein told TV Guide. "It's very hard to watch two people that you think should just get together not get together. It's very painful because you get attached to an idea. "But I don't think the exploration of House and Cuddy is over by any stretch of the imagination. I just think she could not go further with him until she tried something else. There's no way. She has to try to live the life that she thinks is the more correct way of (more) »
