      Season 2 – Burn Notice

      2008 Crime Drama List
      94% 16 Reviews Tomatometer 96% 50+ Ratings Audience Score Michael Westen is steamed -- or, more precisely, burned. His career as a spy ends when he gets a "burn notice," the covert equivalent of a pink slip. Stuck in his hometown of Miami, he intends to find out who did this to him and why, although that's not easy to do: With the burn notice attached to his name, he is cut off from his usual contacts and has to fly under the radar of the intelligence network lest he tip off his secret enemy. So it's a good thing he can rely on help from Fiona, his ex-girlfriend and IRA spy, and his friend Sam, also a former spy. Then there's Madeline, Michael's mother, a hypochondriac but probably not a spy. Read More Read Less Watch on Vudu Premiered Jul 11 Buy Now

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Burn Notice's sophomore season marks the welcome addition of Tricia Helfer to the cast, but otherwise continues the predictable -- and thoroughly enjoyable -- formula of its inaugural year.

      Previous Heather Havrilesky Like a smarter, funnier, modern-day version of The A Team. Jul 3, 2019 Full Review Nancy Franklin New Yorker [Bruce Campbell's] suburban-dad looks have given way to a warm, scruffy bearishness, and he ambles through Burn Notice as if he were having the time of his life. Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Aubry D'Arminio Entertainment Weekly Finally, the plot was about Michael's bad side. May 7, 2018 Full Review J.M. Suarez PopMatters Not only an entertaining blend of action and drama, but also contains a wonderful sense of humor. 7/10 Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures While the first season had a bit of a rocky start as they smoothed out the problems in the pilot, the second season has really taken off. 4/5 Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Matt Goldberg Collider It's got great performances (especially from Donovan who should be fielding offers to lead movies at this point), brilliant writing, and rewards both causal and faithful viewing.

      Previous Kevin M Better than season one and season 1 was great Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/04/22 Full Review Audience Member Try as I might I just couldn't stick with this show by the end of S2. I know I'm in the minority here but I just found it incredibly vanilla and boring, following the same well-worn formula it has been using since S1. It had its moments of course, but it still didn't come across as anything special, but more like the same Jack popping out of the same Box time again, and with diminishing returns in terms of surprises and good writing. This show isn't just burnt it's toast, with its scripts in great need of being cremated! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Gets a little ridiculous. Car accidents, shooting up Miami in front of witness, no citizens IDs anyone. They would all be either dead or in jail by now. Houses getting blown up. Lol. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Michael Westen's hunt for the people who burned him heats up in Season 2 of Burn Notice. In an effort to get his life back Michael goes to work for the people who burned him, but secretly he gathers intel on their organization in order to get out from under their control. Tricia Helfer joins the cast as a recurring character and serves as an excellent villain for Michael to match wits with. Also, several interesting guest stars make appearances, including Oded Fehr, Tim Matheson, MC Gainey, and Dina Meyer. Additionally, the writers do a good job at coming up with new cons for Michael and his crew to pull off, while also teasing the larger conspiracy that he's involved in. And, the action sequences are especially well-done and add a lot of energy and excitement to the show. Incredibly strong, Burn Notice delivering a fun and thrilling second season. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/09/23 Full Review waleed a zalama. beastly mid-season finale and season finale. (2 viewings) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review donald g Season 2 is where the series hits is stride, and there is a big-budget finale reminiscent of a James Bond film. I thoroughly enjoyed this whole series but the prime years were seasons 1-5, a mixture of james bond, austin powers, and "The Sting" (about con men), this series has it all.
