Michael T. Weiss appeared in an episode of Burn "Notice" (2007), alongside lead Jeffrey Donovan, who played Jarod's younger brother Kyle. The episode before this had a character played by Patrick Bauchau. See more »
In Season 2, episode 4, Jarod sends miss Parker a cardboard box containing a Viewmaster picture disc, and a live lobster with a note attached to it. Moments later, Mr. Lyle enters the room, and Broots, who is now holding the lobster, tries to hide it behind his back. However, when the camera pans around Broots from the back, the lobster we see is fully cooked, and hence red. See more »
I remember watching this show when it first started (I was in 7th grade) and completely loving it. Then, I stopped watching, I assume, because I couldn't fit it into my schedule. I got hooked again when I saw "Pretender: Island of the Haunted" last December, and now I watch the show everyday on TNT. I just can't get enough of it! Something about it makes you just seem glued to the TV. I don't know why this show was cancelled as it was so great (even its final season), but I am glad that they made a few movies. Hopefully that will continue! New and old Jarod fans appreciate it!!
