Get Ready for the Scorching New Season of BURN NOTICE

July 9, 2008 by  


I’m going to be honest here. I was a little hot and cold during last year’s first season of BURN NOTICE.  I was a big fan out the gate but as the summer progressed I found myself putting it off and watching other things, and before you knew it I had TiNo’d almost the entire season.  Feeling overwhelmed I kind of gave up on BURN NOTICE and moved on.  But then a few months ago I started catching repeats on USA, and once again I was drawn into the enterprising world of Michael Westen and his crazy but lovable cohorts. Having caught up  on season one I am happy to report that I’m back on board for season 2, just in time for the season premiere tomorrow night at 10/9c on USA.

I got a sneak peek at the first two episodes and I think you’re really going to dig ’em.  The writers really found their groove towards the end of last season and I’m happy to report that they are still in the zone in season 2.  The action is, as always, fantastic, but its the ironic, dry humor that really pulls me in.  And once bothered by what I thought were Michael’s gratuitous voice overs, I now think the writers have found a way to use them to move the story along while also adding some color.

I want to be careful not to spoil too much of “Breaking and Entering”, the first episode of the season because I want you to check it out for yourself, but I will tell you that the show picks up right where it left off last season – with Michael pulling into the mystery van (a la K.I.T.T.) per the instructions of the mysterious sexy voice who has claimed to have burned him. But it’s not long before the action begins and Michael is forced into action with the promise of meeting his new adversary, Carla – played by the uber hot and uber talented Tricia Helfer of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA fame.

Michael is charged with helping out an innocent man who finds himself in a tight spot when Carla kidnaps his family in exchange for his help with some pesky computer files. As always Sam and Fiona are there to help (which begs the question…do they do anything but help out Michael?) And now that Michael’s mother Madeline knows of her son’s career path will she let her paranoia get the best of her?

But the real question is, can Michael deal with working for the very people that burned him?

Scenes from tomorrow night’s premiere…

Ladies, as if Jeffrey Donovan wasn’t eye candy enough be prepared to swoon when he whips out his…fake foreign accent (whoa, what did you think I was going to say?). Gabrielle Anwar continues to be hands down the sexiest cougar on TV today, while Sharon Gless and Bruce Campbell continue to be the legends that they already are.

If you missed out on BURN NOTICE last season, don’t fret.  Tomorrow night’s “previously on Burn Notice” will be enough for you to jump in and watch without being totally confused.  And if you want to play hooky from work tomorrorw, check out the BURN NOTICE marathon on USA throughout the day.

And make sure you swing on by GMMR tomorrow for a new BURN NOTICE contest with lots of fun prizes.
