Burn Notice: "Friends and Enemies" Review Season 4, Episode 1


Advance Review: I'll be the first to admit that Burn Notice is an explosively fun show with likeable characters and an infectious, breezy tonality that draws you in. But I also have to state for the record that I had high expectations entering into Season 4. I had hopes that the show start exploring new territories; new elements. There is a pattern to Burn and the show now, after three seasons, must be evaluated by its growth. It's evolutionary path away from the established pattern. One might start asking themselves: "Do these people need to stay in Miami?" "Could Michael possibly ever find a different love interest?" "Will they ever find a way to successfully incorporate Madeline without making her a hindrance/vulnerability?" Perhaps these questions are a little ambitious for a series that's patterned after Robin-Hood procedurals like The A-Team, The Equalizer and Spencer: For Hire. The show will most likely always be about Michael, Sam and Fi using their soldier expertise to help out the less fortunate denizens of Miami, so the wiggle-room will have to be in the serialized arc that usually book-ends each episode; which has been, for three years, Michael trying to get his old job back and encountering villains and rogues (russian doll-style) along the way.
