Recaps for Burn Notice

What's Hot Today


Though certainly not the most impressive thing about the Burn Notice series finale, "Reckoning," it was still splendid to hear everyone's opening credit soundbites worked into the dialogue throughout the course of the episode. Sam got to say his "bitchy little girls" line, Fi said "Shall we shoot them?" and Jesse even got to say a version of "That's how we do it, people." Though a bit more somber with "I guess that's how we do it," after Mike asked him to stay behind and protect Madeline and Charlie. Even Fi got to say the "My name is Michael Westen" line at the end. It might seem like a clunky touch, but for a show that's often chased its own tail I felt like this was just a loving look back at all the characters. Oh, and a small, fun dig at the fact that fans, ever since the end of Season 1, have wondered if the show would ever get a proper opening. Especially after the show stopped being about Michael getting burned by the CIA. Read More... //

Burn Notice Series Finale Review “Reckoning”

It’s so hard to say goodbye. Especially to a show like  Burn Notice . I really don’t even know where to begin. I guess I’ll have to start by saying that the finale was absolute perfection. As someone who has been on this journey since the beginning, I wanted the end to mean something. I wanted all of the sacrifices, wrong turns, and losses to add up to lessons learned and at least some happiness achieved. The finale delivered on all of that and so much more. This is going to be long. You have been warned. Read More... //

Burn Notice Series Finale Review: The Final Mission

After more than 100 episodes, Michael Westen completed his final mission, bringing down James Kendrick. In the process he saved Fiona from Sonya, which resulted in a " Reckoning " for Michael, and as a result he left the CIA realizing that he no longer wanted to go back to being a spy.   While I admit I still want more Burn Notice , I can say that this ending was so full of awesomeness I wish I could give it more than a 5 star rating.   Read More... //

Review: 'Burn Notice' served notice and, in the end, still roars

The USA series about an out-of-favor spy helped to redefine TV's leading men. As the show reaches its finale, it remains wholly true to itself. While television pundits work themselves into an honors-English lather deconstructing the minutiae of "Breaking Bad's" final episodes, let us pause for a moment, crack a window and possibly a beer, and consider Thursday's final episode of USA's "Burn Notice," a show that had profoundly altered the television landscape before Walter White was barely a mad gleam in Vince Gilligan's eye.  Read More... //,0,4689969.story
