My last and FINALE ode of Ode Week 2011 is to my current favorite show, Burn Notice!!!
Burn Notice is about a spy named Michael Westen who used to be the best in the biz UNTIL he got “burned” (which means fired in spy-lingo) for things he didn’t do. He was dropped in Miami, Florida where he found his old girlfriend Fiona and an ex-Navy Seal friend, Sam Axe. He’s tries to figure out why he was burned, but in the meantime helps regular people with problems (like if someone pulled a scam and stole their money, things like that.)
Seems simple enough right? This show is action packed and I think it’s so funny!! The writing is witty, characters are so likeable* and let’s be honest – I just love spy things.
My husband and I often watch very different shows. He will watch very serious and sometimes depressing shows that paint a picture of the depths of sin and broken humanity.
I on the other hand? I want to be entertained. I want to watch things blow up, laugh at jokes and see people get help. Also – when I like something I watch it over and over again. Burn Notice is often going on in the background while I’m cooking or baking or cleaning. I go in phrases with my favorite shows. But Burn Notice has been holding my attention for quite some time now. Which reminds me… I haven’t watched it in a while now!
We don’t have cable, so we can’t watch it in TV, BUT we first started because they play old seasons on Star 64!! So I HIGHLY recommend you start watching – either the old or the new! Burn Notice comes back November 3rd. It’s on USA on Thursdays at 10pm.
As a general rule, I don’t like any music by Kesha, Lady Gaga or Katy Perry… but this Burn Notice video to a Kesha song called “This Place About to Blow” makes me smile:)
Yay for Burn Notice!
