Desperate Measures - but why ?
24 August 2012 | by (Bangalore,India) – See all my reviews

Summer finale was truly outstanding!! So first Anson had been the antagonist for the whole shadow spy network , what happened to his "Management" Friend ? It sure seems like Tom Card is a puppet ,he doesn't appeal to be the one pulling the strings, damn isn't there anyone you can trust in Burn Notice?Story so far has been pretty intricate and has a good script ,it seems to run along the lines of Prison Break . Extremely curious to know what the episodes unfold this November , hoping that they have a good angle to the events so far. Great Direction indeed,though Michael Western's Character seems more of the aggressive and desperate type this season , relative to the other 5 this season has very less of the whole Former Spy aiding desperate people.
