I had seen commercials on TV for this show called Burn Notice on USA, but I had never watched it. A week ago I rented season one and really liked it. This would make a really good gift for someone who likes spy-humor action shows. This show is about Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) who was a spy until his agency gave him a burn notice. Meaning they have black listed him. He gets flown to his home town of Miami and dumped. He is on a mission to find out who had him fired. He has a few contacts like his gun-loving ex- girlfriend Fiona, a washed up womanizing ex-agent Sam (Bruce Campbell), his gambling addicted brother, a sketchy money launderer Barry (Paul Tei), and his neurtoic mom(Sharon Gless). Michael is making money helping people for a living. The show has witty humor, cool gadgets, action, fighting, and an overall good storyline. I think the show is casted really well. This is a fun show. I like that it is not over the top serious but not too goofy and seem stupid.
