Michael finally has an appointment with bureaucrat Perry Clark, who might review his burn-status, but treats him with ruthless suspicion as probably too good to be true. Meanwhile Sam makes Mike take the case of desperate mansion house-sitter Nick Lam, whose girlfriend Dawn just became the latest kidnap victim of Colombian Lucio Velasquez's ransom-specialized gang. Nick's insecurity forces the team to capture and 'turn' gang member Lucio Velasquez while setting up Sam as Fi's corrupt bodyguard by way of lures. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?


Keen viewers will notice a sharp cut after Sam says "Thanks Mike. It's just Photoshop." This is because no matter how many times they tried to keep the scene going after that line, Jeffrey Donovan could not help but lose himself laughing at how Bruce Campbell delivered it. Eventually they just picked the scene up from after the line. See more »


Fiona breaks Lucio's right foot as an excuse why Lucio did not phone in to the Reyes, but in the next scene, Lucio is driving Reyes. If Lucio's right foot was really broken, he wouldn't have been driving. See more »


Michael Westen: [voice-over] Work around spies for a while, and you learn to be careful when it looks like you're getting what you want. You tend to let your guard down - get careless. Calling the cops on someone can teach you a lot: a foreign agent will run, so might an armed assassin. A bureaucrat's gonna... act like a bureaucrat.

Good show and good actors.
12 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This Kelvin Yu -The Asia actor, he is very good actor, I felt that he is not acting at all,he is more like a guy at next door. we would like to see him back to the show or a few more episodes. We saw him at "Without a Trace" on CBS network. We understand that he also is in the movie -"Harvey Milk",which is coming out this September. We also love the show so much and we love both leading actor- very handsome and the beautiful leading lady. You have a very good team, with those talent supporting actors and actress. We also enjoyed all of scenery appeared at shows. The shows are more entertaining and relaxing for us. We hope the show - "Burn Notice" will stay for at least ten years more. Good luck.
