Was the subject of a skit on Saturday Night Live called "What is Burn Notice?" during the Ashton Kutcher/Them Crooked Vultures episode. See more »
The opening sequences show what is presumably Michael's bank record. The shot shows a screen dated last quarter 2004. The series went to air in 2007 and is presumably supposed to be current time with screening time. The bank shot is therefore of details about three years earlier than when he was burned. See more »
By the end of the first show, the 1-1/2 hour premier, I was hooked. Donovan (remember him from The Pretender?) is charismatic and believable as the spy left out in the cold. I was pleasantly surprised to see Gabrielle Anwar. She starred in a friend's indie film and I wondered what happened to her. And Bruce Campbell.. well who doesn't like him? He adds good depth as Michael Western's grizzled friend. Great cast and sharp writing with Miami serving as a superb backdrop. This series has a load of potential so I'm hoping people will jump on board and start watching. I'm tempted to give it 10/10 as I didn't see anything that I didn't like. I'm looking forward to the new episode tomorrow (Thursday). This show is better than most movies coming out this summer. Great blend of action and humor.
