What's the Arfcom consensus on the USA show Burn Notice?  I recently found it on Netflix, and have made it to episode 7 or so in the first season.  Looks like the typical USA programming, and Bruce Campbell is perfect in his role.  Not sure if I'll make it through 100+ episodes or not, but so far it has my attention...

I like it.  Just don't pay attention to some of the incorrect firearm references or the fascination with Sigs.

I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Fiona could have been hotter. Her skin was like leather.

My mom likes the show, she generally has shit taste for TV shows so I  didn't bother with it.

its a fun show.

If you are one of those who cannot turn a blind eye to Hollywood getting gun stuff wrong... then walk away.

Otherwise enjoy!

I liked it. It dragged a little in season 5, iirc. Most shows do though.

It was good till they brought in the new guy, don't even know his name. After that  I quit watching.

I liked it but I  stalled out and lost interest by the last season.

I think that's what I got tired of it.

Sometimes yes. But most of the time there was just something "off" about her. Looked like a lot of surgery.

I didn't make it till the end...

It's decent.  You'll get bored around season 4 or there about.  Only so many times they can say "if you want to know come with us".  I dunno, worth a watch to waste time in any case.

Worst acting in a TV series, maybe ever.



Turrible

I moved to Florida and started drinking Mojitos because of Burn Notice.

I used to love this show.  It was warm and sunny and made me feel happy when it aired during the winter.

It went downhill after the season where the main chick had major work done to herself.  She showed up looking entirely different, and the show seemed to suffer after it.  I don't remember what season that was though.

Burn Notice & Justified  are in two completely different leagues. They're not even the same sport
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 8:53:40 PM EDT
It was a fun show for the first 2 or 3 seasons, but it got repetitive after the 3rd season. I did not even see the last season, so cannot comment on that.

Just do not take it seriously. It is light weight entertainment and that is all it ever pretended to be. The A-team is a good comparison, the biggest difference being a lot of bad guys actually died on Burn Notice.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 8:53:42 PM EDT
It is a great show. I was very disappointed when they took it off the air.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 8:53:47 PM EDT
It's entertaining, just don't take it too seriously.



The guy who plays Michael is not a very good actor, but somehow he plays the roll very well. I guess he's just a good fit.

Burn notice was a fun ride for several seasons.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 9:26:46 PM EDT
I enjoyed the show. Not the best but good overall
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 9:27:35 PM EDT
The first 3 seasons were great.

It is worth it to watch all 7 seasons at least once.
Link Posted: 5/1/2015 9:29:04 PM EDT
It was great till 5...just ignore the ar15s with no sights....
