Burn Notice

    Anyone else watching this show (on USA Network)? I am hooked. One of the writers called it a modern-day Magnum P.I. (or Equalizer), and it's hard to disagree. Jeffrey Donovan is good as the lead and Bruce Campbell has the perfect role for him.

    Anyway, I'm hoping others are watching as everything else new I tune into gets canceled (I'm also watching Mad Men, so beware).

    Has anyone watched Damages at all? Glenn Close and Ted Danson are great, but the show reminds me of 24 or Lost -- if you miss an episode -- you're completely out of the loop.

    I like Burn Notice, too.

    Burn Notice is setup for automatic recording in my DVR. The show has been a lot of fun.

    Damages is also setup. I haven't watched the most recent episode (number 2) because the wife and I haven't been able to get the schedule in tune to watch it together.

    Jeffrey Donovan can't carry a show. I think Gabrielle Anwar is still hot enough that people will continue to watch to see her occasionally in ridiculously inappropriate clothing, but the show won't last.

    I don't think Donovan is being asked to carry the show. They've been a supporting cast around him and have good scripts. Of course, not sure of the ratings but it has been getting good reviews.

    I really, really like this show. Looks like it'll be a Thursday night staple along with "The Office" and "My Name is Earl."
    It has the great ingenuity of "The A Team" or "MacGyver" along with its strong spy/action moments. I loved that he built up on the blackmail stuff on the guy who's tracking him - the rental car upgrade, the photos of him in his apartment and the new business they deposited money into. That was a nice little turnabout.

    The Lantaur jinx (which I was reminded of while watching burned-off episodes of Knights of Prosperity) is over. Burn Notice has been renewed.

    is it me, or has Gabrielle Anwar gotten even hotter than she used to be?

    Not sure...but her hotness and the presence of the great Bruce Campbell got me to give this one a shot.
