    I thought he was giving up too early. Apparently he thought so too. :)

    It was a decent episode. A little arc movement, a little more background story, and even a little emotional growth.

    This show is very refreshing. Enjoying it tremendously.

    I'm curious, however, how long his pursuit of the information behind the burn notice can last. He seems to get a new clue in each episode. Also, if Michael is such a threat to the US, wouldn't the FBI start to wonder why he continues to let the bad buys live and get arrested rather than just blowing them up or something? At some point the FBI has to be clued in on the fact that Michael isn't credible threat to anyone except bad guys.

    Will we ever find out what supposedly happened to cause it. Perhaps he got to close to something?

    My understanding is that he is limited to Miami for some as yet to be named reason.

    The FBI guys admitted that they have no idea why they are watching him, only that they were told to.

    I'm guessing it's Fiona who arranged to have the burn notice issued, to try to rekindle a relationship with Michael. She was there in the beginning, turns up every time he turns around, and makes herself available and helpful, which is out of character for her with anyone else. His mom might have a hand in it too.

    They stated in one of the first two episodes that if you stay in the city you were dumped, the spy handlers will basically leave you alone but if you leave that city, they will send every possible type of law enforcement officer after you.

    Enjoyable episode. I was surprised he didn't go for the fake FBI informant earlier then try and get them to back off by approaching the lawyer.

    I am really enjoying this show. It doesn't stay long on the DVR before it gets a look and that time is getting shorter each week. A great summer ride!

    I like it too. I watch it the same night it airs, that's the sign of a good show.

    One of the better shows of the summer, we just love it at our house. I agree with the Fiona thing too.

    It's pretty good, for sure -- almost as good as The Closer, though not quite IMHO.

    Really like the show. I guess lack of TiVo/DVR in a hotel room and no slingbox is not always bad. I was out of town last weekend and started watching this because they ran all the first few episodes over and over on the weekend. Just finished watching the latest episode, very entertaining show.

    Always nice to find something unexpectedly enjoyable. Especially in the middle of the summer.

    Great show - so he has used a modified cell phone twice now for his undercover work.

    Last week - to trigger a car bomb
    Last Ep - to call on a motion sensor

    He also used one as a bug. Was that in the pilot?
