In the voice over, Michael says using the Ethernet cable makes a good antenna. He actually cuts a power cable and uses the ground wire. See more »


Fiona Glenanne: [frustrated] I still think we should set off the charges, blow a hole in the wall, rush in... Beats waiting out here.
Sam Axe: Yeah, that's good, let's get Mike and the hostages killed because you have the attention span of a 3 year old.

Fighting Back Without Fighting
7 May 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) finds himself trapped in a bank which is being robbed by a vicious and well-organised group of thieves. If anyone resists, hostages will be shot - how can Michael sabotage the robbers without their realising...?

A supremely clever episode of a smart series that sees Michael use his spy-skills to confuse, bedevil and arrange a series of "accidents".

Humour is provided by sidekicks Sam and Fi (Bruce Campbell and Gabrielle Anwar) who are both wonderful as always. Bruce probably gets the best line when a girlfriend blows him off due to his "exciting" lifestyle and he smacks a bank-robber with a cry of "Ya ruined something special!"

If you haven't been "Burned" by this series yet, this could be the episode to do it.
