Burn Notice is one of those shows that sorta sneaks up on you, much like its covert, ex-spy characters. At first, it seems like a pure action show where men are men and stuff blows up. But then, you go deeper and it turns out to be an intelligent, fun show that not only features action and explosions but actual characters and stories you care about a well.
Obviously, USA feels they’ve got something special too because they’ve given the show an additional two seasons. The news broke late yesterday via a USA’s exec’s Twitter account, which is where all the best news is coming out these days. Just in case you’re not familiar with the show, it concerns “burned” spy Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) who’s former employers drop him in Miami penniless and with no work resources after they decide he’s no longer useful.
Once there he teams up with friends Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell) and Fiona Glenanne (Gabrielle Anwar) to find out who burned him and also do a little PI work on the side. He also occasionally has to deal with his mother (Sharon Gless), who also happens to live in Miami too.
It’s a fun show with some great actors and is definitely worth a look if you’ve never watched it before. And now, with USA giving it two more seasons, you’ll have a chance to do just that.
Burn Notice returns Thursday, June 3 at 9/9C on USA.
