      Season 4 – Burn Notice

      2010 Crime Drama List
      83% 12 Reviews Tomatometer 93% 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 Jan 09 Buy Now

      Burn Notice — Season 4

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Burn Notice declines to rock the boat in a fourth season that revels in its narrative slickness and the easygoing repartee among its ensemble.

      Previous Aaron Riccio Slant Magazine There's nothing wrong with a show that just wants to comfortably bask in the Miami sun -- so long as it rolls over and shows some fresh skin every once in a while. 2/4 Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Alan Sepinwall HitFix I like the cases of the week just fine -- and in periods when the mythology is floundering, they're the reason to watch. Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Brian Tallerico No program does this kind of thing better... The cast of the show has gotten better every year and they're more than up for the challenge of dramatic plots that don't tidy themselves up in 44 minutes. 3.5/5 Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Kevin Carr 7M Pictures I continue to like the relationship between Michael, Fiona and Sam, and by this season, things have gelled far beyond their tenuous structure in the earlier seasons. 3/5 Dec 7, 2018 Full Review J.M. Suarez PopMatters The fourth season of Burn Notice may have had its share of large overriding mysteries and twists, but it didn't abandon the smaller stories that always offered more insight into these characters and their motivations. 7/10 Dec 7, 2018 Full Review Robert Fure Film School Rejects The problem was, for me, the creators wanted to come back with a gigantic bang, so they shoved in a bunch of explosions, three or four storylines, a cameo by Michael Ironside, and some CGI aircraft.
