Bruce Campbell Rocks
Verified purchase
This is the second season of Burn Notice that I bought, at a very good price. As a Bruce Campbell fan, you'd think that I'd get a few more, but each of these seasons came with broken DVD cases. This last one I almost returned because the case seemed to have been stepped on.
Working at home to avoid the Corona Virus, I placed the disks in a DVD wallet, then I noticed that the other season I purchased a few months ago, that the case was equally flattened by what might have been a size 11 work boot. When you open the case the disks fly out like Snake Plisken escaping from New York... I don't think Bruce Campbell would like that, and I'm certain Gabrielle Anwar would not approve of their fans being treated this way.

"Mike, You Just Burned a Spy."
Verified purchase
When you're a spy, you learn a special set of skills that help you do your job and stay alive. But what do you do with those skills when you are fired? That's the dilemma that Michael Westen has been facing ever since being fired from his job at the CIA and dumped in Miami. And it's also the premise of Burn Notice. Season 4 is as hot and exciting as the previous seasons have been.

This season finds a big shake up to the cast. Yes, Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) is still the main character. When he gets in situations that are over his head, he still calls on former girlfriend and gun dealer Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) and ex-seal Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell). His mom Madeline (Sharon Gless) is even still around to drive him crazy. So what's the change? They've added Jesse (Coby Bell) to the team. In the season 4 premier, Michael is trying to get some information for the puppet masters that burned him (so he can use it against them) and inadvertently burns Jesse in the process. So Jesse joins their team, all the time vowing to take down the person who burned him, not knowing its Michael.

Even given this extra character, the setup of each episode is pretty much the same. There's a case of the week that Michael is reluctantly drawn in to. They help a lawyer targeted for death by a biker gang. Michael and Sam get taken hostages while trying to help a conned man get his money back. A clinic doctor is harassed by drug dealers. Fiona and a client's wife get kidnapped. Michael even goes to prison to help a man escape before he is murder.

But each episode also continues the overall storyline. This season, Michael is closing in on a list of those who burned him, but he's in a race for that list with some very bad people. Will he get it and clear his name or will he wind up dead?

People seem to be in two camps on the new character of Jesse. Some argue that it messed with the chemistry of the characters and was an unnecessary change to the show. I usually fall into the "If it ain't broke, why are you fixing it" camp myself, and I can certainly see their point. However, I liked Jesse. The fact that he shook up the dynamics on the show is a good thing, in my opinion. They play a bit with a love triangle involving Michael, Jesse, and Fiona, which actually adds something to the will they/won't they tension that Michael and Fiona have had all along. Plus the storyline he gets in the second half of the season adds a depth to the show that it hasn't had before. No, Jesse wasn't a necessary change, but I think he was a good one.

Even without Jesse, this show is still great. The case that the gang works on each week is always very entertaining. I watch the show for that more than anything else. They always manage to throw in some twist I didn't see coming, and I am always wondering how they will get out of the mess they are in. Naturally, they do it with lots of car crashes and explosions. This is the best action show currently on TV. I don't know what their budget is, but I buy just about every moment of their effects and stunts.

The ongoing story is a bit of a mixed bag. Either I'm bad at remembering what is happening from week to week or they throw things in at random that don't necessarily make sense from what happened last week. I've given up trying to keep track of all the twists and turns and just let the story unfold. While it doesn't seem to be as tight as I would like, I still find this aspect of the show fun and entertaining. I will say this, with how they left things in season 4, I don't see how they will move forward in season 5, but I can't wait to find out.

The acting on this show is top notch as well. The main cast knows their characters and does what each scene calls for whether it is action, a bit of humor, or more dramatic emotional stuff. And the guest stars never let us down either.

Season 4 upped the usual episode order to 18, and all those episodes are in this four disc set in widescreen and full surround sound. Extras include deleted scenes, a gag reel, a featurette about the stunts, audio commentaries, and "Sam Axe's Guide to Ladies and Libations." The creators of this show and White Collar are friends and have a lot of fun giving each other a hard time, which explains the pair of features "Burn Notice Roasts White Collar" and "White Collar Roasts Burn Notice," both of which can be found on the season two set of White Collar as well.

Burn Notice has always been a fun, action packed show, and season 4 is no different. You'll soon find yourself caught up in the action and twists of these fun stories.

Still full of action
Verified purchase
This show is really good if you like a lot of action. The plots are well written, but you do wish they would finally reveal who burned Michael; I realize the main theme of the story would be over and then you'd just have a string of rescue missions, but I'd enjoy that too, because that's actually the most exciting feature of the show. I love the background of the show(sunny Miami) and all the pretty people (especially when you live in a snowy part of the region, its delightful to watch) I particularly like FIONA. She is one fearless woman; only weakened by her love for Michael and he her(which can at times weakens him), but that's true to life I think. I also like the continuation of each season and the reminders of what was last seen, so the viewer will know where they're at in the saga. I like the family like feel of all the characters together and their loyalty, that's part of the charm of the show. If you like ACTION with a good pace and sunny backdrop, this is a show for you. I wanta add too, there's a lot of McGyver details (I worry if people would try coping for real sometimes) that are informative and intrigueing. That's MY take!

DVD for personal viewing. Fun series with good characters. The blood and guts don't splatter all over the screen. Hurrah for the good guys and boooo to the baddies. They usually get what's coming to them.

As awsome as EVER!!!
Verified purchase
In its 4th season Burn Notice continues to crank out high octane fun. The show has evolved a bit and does not concentrate soley on Mike and the gang saving an everyday person from some sticky situation. He continues to unwind the mess that is the USA intell departments. The show continues to find ways to bring in a NEW nemisis every year that tries to controll Mike's life. If you have never seen burn notice I say start at season 1 episode 1 and you'll enjoy this hour of escape. While the episode have a stand alone plot, there is also an overall plot that carries from week to week. This overall plot deals with who, what, when and why, michael was kicked out Burnt hence Burn Notice) of the US spy biz. Fiona is hot and Sam is the best supporting actor of any TV show going now. From episode 1 of season 1, the chemistry is amazing. The plots are fun and the premise is unique. The actors just fit the show like a glove. Take in the first 6 episodes and you'll be hooked. Unless your one of those brainless reality show drones. Keep it up USA and Burn Notice. I want atleast 10 season!!!

Took burn notice to a new level of intensity
Verified purchase
With all the reviews covering details of the season I'll focus on my impressions of the season. This is the season of tension and threat. Michael is getting back into the CIA bit by bit, then he gets framed for his handler Max getting shot. From that moment on he is out of control and desperately getting lost in the task of understanding why and getting some control back.

Season 4 raised my blood pressure compared to the previous 3 seasons. It was very good but different and more tension filled in a manner that spanned episodes. It built the platform for even higher tensions in season 5.

I already miss Burn Notice now that the series is over. I can only hope for the "after dinner mint" that would be a burn notice movie or two.

More of what makes Burn Notice so much fun.
Verified purchase
I've really enjoyed Burn Notice, overall, and felt like Season Four continued in much the same vein as its predecessors...a little tongue-in-cheek, but Michael is still largely in command of his fate (which became less and less a factor in the rest of the series...it became darker and darker and Michael became more and more of a puppet dancing at the end of someone else's strings). I still like things about the later seasons...but this is the last one that I have been able to watch without shaking my head and asking, "What did you people think you were doing with that idea?"
