Stepping out of the back of the eighteen-wheeler he was riding in, Michael Westen is greeted with an exploding plane, dead bodies, and one hog-tied, live "client", Jimmy. The phone rings, and a female voice, calling herself "Carla", lets Michael know that if he gets this man back to Miami, and help him play ball, she will finally let him know who burned him. After agreeing to help his new client, Jimmy, steal data from the fortress at Security Associates, and get the man's family back, who are now being held hostage, Michael enlists the help of his friends Fiona and Sam.

Did You Know?


Michael's cover ID ("Terry Miller") is actually one of the producers. See more »


When the police officer picks up the planted automatic weapons, he does so with his bare hands, without gloves. This would be a fatal mistake for any real police officer, as it would compromise any fingerprint evidence that could be on the weapon. See more »


[first lines]
Michael Westen: [voice-over] As a spy, you get to spend a lot of time alone... Whether you're in an Indonesian prison, a cave in the Afghan mountains, or the back of a cargo truck, it comes with the job. You're trained to make the most of it, plan your next move, go over your intel, review your training, but, when you've cleaned your gun thirty times, and reviewed the past tense of every verb in five languages, you start itching to make a move.

Scintillating Season opener .....
10 July 2008 | by (Ogden, Utah) – See all my reviews

Guns Ammo and Gabrielle Anwar.Who could ask for more.and the pace is cracklin'. I still think they should get Richard Edson on the show at some point he could play such a great Miami Scumbag. I love that guy. This show just makes me want to be in Miami. Last time I was there there was a traffic jam. Someone had gotten out of a car to save a 4 foot alligator and chased him till he dove into Indian creek. Got to get back there to experience the Burn Notice ambiance. This show is what makes TVshows shooting in a given city so Vital. It's a seductive postcard for Miami. It is a burn notice city now. And so much more intelligent than Miami vice this show. Just wonder how many Feds are technical advisors and people from 'the company'. Oh well at least they're not out being black ops contractors for blackwater or if they are it's in their spare time.
