Synopsis
When intelligence agencies need to dispense with one of their spies they serve a burn notice. A burn notice informs other agencies that the spy has become unreliable, effectively ending his or her career. The USA Network's BURN NOTICE follows Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan), whose intelligence career comes to an abrupt halt after a botched job in Nigeria. Westen returns home to Miami, Florida, only to discover that he has been cut off from all his contacts in the agency and his bank account has been frozen. Without a penny to his name, Westen decides to work as an unlicensed private investigator, using the money he makes to launch his own investigation into his fate with the intelligence agency. Westen's new career presents him with plenty of opportunities to delve into Miami's seedy underbelly, with drug dealers, gunrunners, prostitution rings, and gangsters all coming under his watchful eye. A strong supporting cast includes Gabrielle Anwar (SCENT OF A WOMAN) as Westen's ex-girlfriend and former IRA agent Fiona Glenanne; Bruce Campbell (THE EVIL DEAD) as Sam Axe, an aging lothario who is Westen's only remaining connection with the intelligence world; and Sharon Gless (CAGNEY & LACEY) as Westen's overbearing mother, Madeline. Vital clues into Westen's burn notice are revealed as the film progresses, and he often has to use all his ingenuity, including some intricate skills with electronic devices, to find the answers. This release includes every episode from the first season of the show.

My husband and I are enjoying these thoroughly. From the initial ads, I expected something more gritty and was disappointed. Once I started watching the episodes in the right spirit, I was entertained. These are enjoyable procedurals, in which our hero is instructing us in the arts of elaborate cons and low-grade paramilitary actions. I'm always a sucker for plots that involve improvising weapons and espionage tools out of readily available consumer products. None of these shows will strain your mind; they're basically a 21st-century Travis McGee thriller.
