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 »
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!
