This is a fun, high-spirited series. The actors are easy on the eyes and the writers keep things moving right along with a lot of ingenious variations on cops and robbers. The show strikes a nice balance between kidding around, menace, romance and family, but the predominant note is sheer joie-de-vivre. P.S., the commentaries are focused and informative, and don't miss Donovan's audition; watch his eyes.

Some minor problems that are expected in a new show. It just gets better with each new season. Didn't like the portrait of Michael's mom, season two is much better. Our whole family loves this show, something we can do as a family, watch Burn Notice!

This is an above average spy show. Well written and filmes in a stylized way with gorgeous settings. Good pacing and ample action. Gabrielle Anwar is showing her age and needs to eat a bit, but is still very nice to look at. Bruce Campbell is...well...Bruce Campbell. I love the guy. I like the show. I wasn't overly impressed with the storylines, but I might give season two a look.

A cross between Alias and MacGyver with mebbe a touch of CHiPs. The actors and writers seem like they`re having a really good time with this show, which makes it fun to watch.

I thought it was annoying. Tries to hard to be cute and funny without being successful on either count.

I think this has to be the smartest show on television. Great acting, great writing, and perfect chemistry amidst the actors. This program will keep you on the edge of your seat. And always wondering whats going to happen next.

This is a great action-packed TV show. Michael Westin was fired from his black ops spy job. He wants to know why. In the mean time he helps people who are in trouble. This show is quirky and funny as Michael plays different characters and narrates how to con the criminals. Staff picks 2009

Michael Westen: [voiceover] But in the end, sometimes making an escape is just about being willing to do what the guy chasing you won't. Like jump off a building.
