    Just a reminder, Burn Notice starts up again Thursday.

    I bet there's going to be a guy who seems to know who burned Michael/why Michael was burned. Throughout the half season, Michael tries to outwit him while doing episodic assignments. I also bet one of his clients is going to be a hot chick. Despite last season ending in Washington, DC, he'll be back in Meeeami.

    Meanwhile, I'll wonder if Fiona has a job. I know she worked some place in the pilot/first season.

    I knew I shouldn't have clicked it but I couldn't help myself. Now the season is ruined.

    I'm in. But for how long depends where the story goes this season. The show is starting to run its course.

    I've wondered. Where did Fiona's accent go? She had it in the first half of S1 then poof, all gone

    My wife likes it, so I'll watch it. Fucking worst acting on TV -- and that sucks, because I like everyone on the show, they just don't do well together.

    I actually like the acting on the show, right up until Michael tries to pull some stupid undercover tough guy shit and then he's just dumb. Or Sam with his Chuck Finley character. Blech.

    At least TitanTV's description makes a little more sense, though it's been done at least three times before:

    Burn Notice

    "Company Man"

    So we already know who burned Michael. So now he wants to know why. So I'm guessing next season he will want to know the day and time they burned him. The following season he will want to find out where exactly did they burn him. Finally Michael will know how they burned him.

    Wasn't Robert Patrick's character the head of the organization that burned him?

    The Unit did have their issues with the CIA.

    I still have 16 of the 18 episodes of season 4 to watch. The last three episodes I watched were blech so it's been hard getting up the motivation to start watching again.

    I'm not a criminal so I don't know how criminal enterprises work. But you'd think by now word would get around the Miami crime circuit that if there's a dark-haired dream boat you've never seen before offering you a way to expand your business exponentially and talking in a goofy voice, shoot him on sight.

    I love this! I was bitching about the goofy voices to my wife a couple of weeks ago, it seems that's all he ever does, change into a weird shirt/coat, put on a goofy voice, and insinuate himself into the bad guys organization.

    I'm halfway through last night's episode of Burn Notice and I've begun to realize that I'm growing Entourage-level hate for this show. Now who plays the chick hacker?

    Would Entourage-level hate for the show be started out as a cool little show that turned into a guilty pleasure. But then the show took a turn for the worse. But you still watched it either because there was nothing else on or you wanted to see how bad it was going to get. Then you realize you have better things to do with your time and punched out of the show altogether?

    I'll still haven't figured out who the chick hacker was. She was definitely hot. Although I thought it would have been cool if Michael would have just turned his foot a little when it was on her throat.

    The show really has run it's course. Though it doesn't help that the show following it is sooo much better right now.

    Technically that did happen (show I kind of liked but never loved but now truly despise), but I'm referring more to the you watch it and you're like "Fuck you. You have to realize how stupid and hacky this entire thing is. Fuck you for disrespecting my intelligence." I never backed out of Entourage, and with its final season starting next week I won't, but with this show I couldn't even make it to the end of the episode. I just fastforwarded to find the best scene with Eve, the hacker chick.

    It was Aviva, the non-Emma Stone chick from Superbad. So thank you Superbad for giving us Emma Stone and this chick.
