View Full Version : "Burn Notice" - New on USA starts tonight

6.28.07, 7:05 PM
The advance reviews for this are pretty good. Variety compares it favorably with Rockford Files, a good mix of drama with comedy on the side.

The press release summary:

A spy, Michael Weston, receives a burn notice for an unstated reason, effectively firing him. He has spent the previous decade working for the government in Eastern Europe and returns to his hometown of Miami to get his life in order.

Michael will stop at nothing to find out why. Shut out from his normal contacts, but still driven to right wrongs, Michael needs to stay under the radar in order to stay in the game.

Michael's ex-girlfriend, Fiona, is trying to help Michael in his quest. Being an ex-IRA operative comes in handy for her.

Working against Michael is his mother who calls him constantly and tries to get him and his brother back together.

Stars Jeffery Donovan, Bruce Campbell, Sharon Gless & Gabrielle Anwar

First episode is 6.28, commercial free. 10PM on USA

We're going to record and watch. Hoping to find another show for at least the summer. Pickings seem pretty slim at the moment.
