USA is the best there is right now for original new television shows. Burn Notice is my new favorite. To me the top TV series right now include Monk, Burn Notice and Psych, among the traditional network giants such as Criminal Minds, NCIS, The Unit, Numbers, the CSI's and Law and Orders. Maybe there is hope to get back to originality rather than the insipid "reality" series that perpetually rip each other off. In Burn Notice, the locations are fantastic, the characters original and engaging, the action both intense and amusing, and the whole thing moves so fast you can't wait until the next week. Thank God for DVRs, but for the first time I am recording the traditional shows and watching the USA series real-time!
