It's mentioned often throughout the series that the name Michael Westen is notorious throughout Russia.

This show has stylish, cheaply made and lots of fun. Donovan has a lot of charisma but Bruce Campbell and the other supporting cast really make this show pop. Miami is great location for this show. In the future it would be cool to see it move around season to season. The show is smartly written and avoids most of the spy standards. It would be nice if they reduced the amount of voice over. It tends to distract from the suspense, but it's not driving me nuts or anything.
I'll keep watching to see where this show goes, I think it has a lot of potential and is a great, light, fun summer watch.
USA appears to have a winner on its hands with this new summer show!
