Trivia

It's mentioned often throughout the series, that the name "Michael Westen" is notorious throughout Russia. Russian Intelligence talks about Michael Westen as having done too much damage to be one person (they think "Michael Westen" is a code name for a Special Operations team) and they use his name and tales of what he's done to scare rookie operatives.

Goofs

Miami is relatively small (less than 40 square miles, making it smaller than San Francisco and Washington D.C.) and yet no one ever recognizes Michael Weston, despite his interacting with HUNDREDS of people during the series' run. See more »

A cool show with lots of potential
8 July 2007 | by sixtwentysixSee all my reviews

This show has stylish, cheaply made and lots of fun. Donovan has a lot of charisma but Bruce Campbell and the other supporting cast really make this show pop. Miami is great location for this show. In the future it would be cool to see it move around season to season. The show is smartly written and avoids most of the spy standards. It would be nice if they reduced the amount of voice over. It tends to distract from the suspense, but it's not driving me nuts or anything.

I'll keep watching to see where this show goes, I think it has a lot of potential and is a great, light, fun summer watch.

USA appears to have a winner on its hands with this new summer show!
