USA Network's Burn Notice returns tomorrow night, and if E! Online is to be believed, the Cagney and Lacey reunion on the episode will be a good one. As we all know, Tyne Daly reunites with her old detective buddy Sharon Gless, who on Burn Notice plays Michael's (Jeffrey Donovan) not-exactly-modest mommy.
On the Burn Notice episode, Michael forces his mom to cultivate Tyne's character as an intelligence asset. According to him, they share a wardrobe and a cigarette brand, "good stuff" even for the post-Cagney and Lacey generation, i.e., essentially anyone who were born on the latter of the 80s.
Don't get attached to Tina (Daly's character) though, since she ruled out appearing on Burn Notice on a regular basis suppose the opportunity arises. "At the moment I don't have time. I'm doing the Caberet, I actually open tonight in San Francisco and then New York and LA and wherever else it is unintelligible. Yeah so I'm doing my Caberet and after that I'm obliged to play in Washington."
Daly, who had an Emmy-winning stint on Judging Amy up to 2005, added that she really wanted to do theater right after going on the CBS drama. And why not? She has a Tony for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for Gypsy in 1989.
In other Burn Notice news, tomorrow's episode will have Sam (Bruce Campbell) helping Michael investigate his new nemesis, while Michael and Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) continue to "punch up" their relationship after Fiona's attempt to elave Miami and return to Ireland early this season.
