    Better episode than last one. I am starting to like the interaction with the mom. But it was a fun Con, and Michael got paid in the end.

    Might have a new "friend" at the Pakistani Embassy

    I think this was one of my favorite episodes so far out of the entire series. I liked to see Michael turn another spy into an asset. He's done that before with other people but this was a guy who is a spy also and it wasn't easy. They still had to have him cave within the allotted time, but it was fun.

    I'd like to see less Michael helping people and see this move into more of Spy Games.

    I have to check my SP. I keep missing these and having to catch them later in the week.

    I'm pretty sure the formula is set in stone now. Each show he'll help out someone, maybe get paid, maybe not. Around the elements of helping out that person the story of the Burn Notice will move forward, just a little bit.

    I loved this episode. Sam really cracks me up when they have him play various characters.

    Wow! I can't believe there aren't more comments on this thread - this is such a great show!

    The interaction of the characters is really entertaining - the writers are doing such a good job.

    I watched the episode and liked it but I was clearly doing something else at the time so I don't remember it very well. I'll have to watch it again this week so I can catch onto some of the little stuff.

    Another good episode. But I have a couple of questions.

    Why was Michael looking for a mirror for his Charger? How/when did he lose it?

    When did he give Fi the Saab? I vaguely remember him stealing/renting one but how/when did he give it to her?

    The premiere seemed like it was floundering. The last couple of shows, it is picking up speed again. Loved the way he screwed the Pakastani agent. Also, LOVE the Sam the lawyer guise. This was a really good episode.

    One of his past clients couldn't pay him, but was leaving the country and leaving everything behind, including the car. Michael already has a car, so he gave the guy's car to Fi.

    Good episode!

    What I found funny was how Sam's hair kept getting darker and darker with each new disguise this week. Then in next week's previews, it was decidedly NOT gray anymore. It's obvious they are trying to make him look younger.

    Also in the voiceover at the beginning, they changed the dialog about Sam to "an old friend who WAS spying on you for the FBI..." Thought that was and interesting change (and accurate since he wasn't anymore).

    We love the show. My wife said that out of all the current shows (L&O:CI, Monk, Psych, In Plain Sight, etc) this is the one she truly looks forward to!

    I did like how the one guy asked him if he needed the box of cellphones. Duh, he uses them for every job to amke things out of. Of course he needs them!

    That was the perfect gift to give a psuedo spy! :D

    I loved how the mother offered him $200 to pay for his help. :rolleyes: :D
