For the final season of “Burn Notice” Matt Nix takes the series to a very dark place; this means no jaunty salsa inspired theme music, virtually no bikini babes strutting around, and lots of soapy drama, Mike crying, Fiona crying, Jesse crying, heck even Sam looking a little misty. Make no mistake; the breezy “Burn Notice” of the first few seasons has been left behind. Once again we find Michael being manipulated by an omnipotent foe into doing their bidding in order to save friends and family. This time it’s the CIA on one side and cultish figure James (John Pyper-Ferguson, Tex on “The Last Ship”) who runs some sort of off the books organization the folks at Langley want to see taken down.

Michael and Fiona have parted ways and she’s got a new boyfriend while Michael’s getting cozy with a Russian acolyte of James named Sonia (Alona Tal, cheerleader Meg from “Veronica Mars” who happens to be a knockout blonde). Michael and crew wind up rescuing her from the Russians who haven’t taken her defection to James very well. Supposedly she’s been held for 2 weeks in a black site being tortured. Inexplicably there’s not a mark on her, hair and makeup are perfect and she looks ready for Vogue cover shoot.

Mom Maddie Westen gets custody of deceased son Nate’s child Charlie. Maddie has certainly evolved over seven years and is way more comfy with the spy business. That said it’s quite lot to ask us to buy her unrealistically helping Fiona with a kidnapping, blowing up a loan shark’s office, and waving around a handgun like it’s no problem. Her character’s ultimate fate will no doubt trouble some long time fans.

Meantime Sam and Jesse’s lives appear to be status quo. Without going into the plot details there’s plenty of torment for Michael trying to decide how to save his friends while he’s torn between his CIA handler’s demands and his growing regard for how James’ operation is doing good work (with albeit sometimes questionable methods). Some viewers may like this sort of thing but I missed the good old days of helping folks out tough situations and the lighter mood of the first 3-4 seasons. Within the 13 episodes the writers insert certain tag lines for the characters to speak one more time like Sam’s “You know spies, just a bunch of bitchy little girls” or Fiona’s “Should we shoot them” which was about all the fun you were going to get on this last outing of the show.

Frustrating elements for me included Fiona’s adoption of the Walther PPK pistol as her weapon of choice. It’s a great little pistol (just ask 007) that’s easy to conceal on a small person but only has a 6 shot magazine (assuming .380 caliber). In the final episode when an opponent is shot and she’s got the opportunity to take their bigger caliber, higher capacity handgun she just leaves it on the ground…not smart when you’re trying to shoot your way out of a bad situation. Later she and Michael have their backs against the wall and are down to Fi’s PPK she says she has 3 rounds left, then shoots 2 of them, tosses the pistol to Mike who then shoots at least 3-4 more shots, must be a Hollywood gun.

The iconic black Dodge Charger makes an unexplained comeback midway through the season and is in perfect shape; glad to see it but didn’t seem probable as I think it was blown up in Season 6 (again). Speaking of cars, part of the action takes place in Cuba giving the set dressers an opportunity to display an array of classic 50’s and early 60’s American automobiles. While I love these cars the ones used for the show are pristine looking like they just rolled of the stage of a Barrett-Jackson classic car auction. Not only does the team manage to procure show winning cars but they mostly are bright tomato red…ideal for stealthy and covert operations. Then again there’s Fiona’s red Hyundai…

We get to see Sam in Navy dress blues at the end of the final episode and once again must be the same wardrobe consultants from “The Fall of Sam Axe”. It looks pretty legit overall but again for a guy for whom the core of his character is that he’s a Navy SEAL they don’t have him wearing the SEAL trident badge! He’s looks like he’s wearing some surface warfare officer insignia instead…one of the most famous military insignia and it’s twice now they have used the wrong thing.

The DVD has very limited bonus features, given the bleak tone of this season it’s amazing there was a gag reel at all but not surprisingly it’s only a couple minutes long. There’s also a 10 minute vignette about ending the series that’s mildly interesting. All in all if you’ve been a long time fan of “Burn Notice” then you must watch the grand finale despite the fact that it’s strayed far from its appealing original vibe.

I loved Burn Notice -until I started watching this season. It's very different from previous seasons. It's in soap opera format - the story line is continous from one episode to the next- the background " music" is all drumming such as you'd expect for a tense climax scene but it's on all the time - it's depressing and defeated- I'm only 2 discs into it but I don't think I can keep watching it - it's that bad. I'll go through the other seasons for the 4th time and still enjoy them. No wonder the show ended. They took a completely successful series and changed it and ruined it.

I absolutely love this show! The cast is amazing; really incredible chemistry! Some of the stunts they pull are far fetched to be sure, but well executed so it works anyhow. The personal drama between Michael and Fiona is realistic enough to be emotionally compelling, and all the characters form this peculiar family. There is tons of action, exciting plots, and lots of Robin Hood style helping the little guy that makes for good TV. The real world is full of crap and crappy people so I enjoy the idea of someone actually putting their butt on the line for someone else just because it is the right thing to do, now and then. I have always liked Bruce Campbell and Sam Axe is the same charming rogue we have come to expect from him! Excellent show!! Watch it from the beginning!

4.0 out of 5 stars"I Hate to Say It, Sammy, But I Think This Thing is Far From Over."

In the last 15 years, TV has changed dramatically. Instead of mostly stand alone episodes, many TV shows tell multi-episode stories. That’s why I respect it when show runners and TV networks set end dates for series I love. It gives the show runner a chance to end the story how they want to without dragging things out too much.

Of course, sometimes the tenor of the show has changed. That was the case with Burn Notice. I got into the show just before season 2 started airing, and I’ve been a loyal viewer ever since. However, with season 6 the show got darker, and that continued with Season 7 of the show.

When season 7 picks up, it has been nine months since we last saw Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) and his friends. In that time, no one has even heard from Michael. That’s because as part of the deal that got his friends released from CIA custody, he’s been deep under cover in the Dominican Republic to take down a terrorist organization. If he can do this, maybe he and everyone else in his life will finally be free.

Of course, as he finally gets in with the group, he finds he needs help and he begins reaching out to his friends again. Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell) and Jesse (Coby Bell) are more than ready to help, but Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) has moved on; she even has a new boyfriend. And Michael’s mom Madeline (Sharon Gless) just wants her son to come home so she doesn’t lose anyone else. Will that even be a possibility or will he wind up exposed and dead?

The darkness of season 6 continued with season 7, and I didn’t like that. The show had always put our heroes up against overwhelming odds, but here the odds seemed worse than normal. The humor that the show had often had also dimmed. There were still some good lines, but I missed the mood lightener it had presented.

Of course, a few episodes before the end, there was a twist that really darkened things. I was not a fan of that at all.

So it was with much reluctance that I sat down to watch the series finale. But I was very pleasantly surprised with how things ended. No, it wasn’t all light and warmth, but it was very satisfying, and even more importantly, it felt right. We sent these characters out with style after seven years.

And I loved the nods to some of the elements of the series in the finale, too.

The show has always been known for its action, and that was still a strong point here. The stunts and explosions are as big as ever. I will admit that one or two were a little obviously fake, but most of the time I believe what I’m watching.

These actors have always brought their characters to wonderful life, and this season was no exception. In fact, while I didn’t like some of the places the plot went, I always bought it thanks to the great acting.

There were 13 episodes in this final season, and they are presented here in their native wide screen and full surround sound on four discs. Looking for extras? You'll get the standard deleted scenes and gag reel as well as a featurette on how the end of the show was created.

So if you are a fan of Burn Notice, you owe it to yourself to find out how things end. It may not be quite the journey you hope for, but the end of Season 7 will satisfy.

5.0 out of 5 starsWhen You're a Spy.......

This review is mostly for the entire series, with some comments on how it ends.

I just completed a series marathon of Burn Notice, over the course of the last three weeks, and if you watch 111 episodes (I haven't bothered with the Axe movie) in that compressed a time period, you notice some things. One, is that "I need a favor" might be the most spoken phrase in the entire series, usually spoken by Michael. Another is that all three Westons are pains in the ass, though you still like them. Michael is selfish and demanding, Madeline truly believes that she knows best about everything no matter the topic, and Nate is your classic screw-up, though all have a nobility that makes you forgive them. Fiona and Sam have personalities that fit the series (always on-call, full of innovative ideas, loyal past the point of common sense), while Jesse was a breath of fresh air, as well as a fourth body that allowed for bigger action sequences. But I liked them all, and the six actors involved were very skilled and have a great on-screen chemistry, no matter the combination.

Did the overall plot narrative get drawn out a bit? Possibly, until the final season here, where Michael finally began to unravel after all he's been through. Jeffrey Donovan pulls it off so skillfully that it makes me wonder why they didn't do it earlier, when it would have been just as realistic. How USA Network gets these great actors to lead their shows (Bomer, McCormack, Shaloub, etc in addition to JD) is fascinating, especially given that they're genre shows that, Monk excepted, are never going to win awards.....given that they're genre shows. Bruce Campbell is playing what can only be described as the Bruce Campbell role, and ably does the comic relief. Sharon Gless......I would have liked less of her frankly, that character needed smaller doses, but she's a great actress and elevates the role above the typical 'mom'. Coby Bell might just be the best actor of the bunch, while Seth Peterson (Nate) grew in the role, which the writers noted as they gave him more to do as the series went on. The various guest stars and recurring players (Dead Larry, Barry, Dixon) were ably done and had distinctive personalities. I'm not sure the show could have handled an eighth season without a re-jiggering of the main plot line (Michael being burned), but I would have liked to see them try, as The Mentalist has tried to do over the last few months. Perhaps the actors were ready to finish, or the ratings were declining just enough, I don't know.

The end? I'm happy that it's an end, that the series wasn't just cancelled abruptly and left on a cliffhanger. That's all I'll say about it, other than that I enjoyed it. Burn Notice is a very well acted, competently scripted show that delivers 45 minutes of action at a pop, and I'll miss it. I hope the actors go on to other interesting projects, as well as series creator Matt Nix, I'm greatly looking forward to his next show.

Amazon has asked me 6-7 times to rate Burn Notice: Season 7, but I made it a point to wait until after the #Final Burn to post this. First things first, Season 7 is a giant 13 episode Arc from start to finish. After the second or third episode, season 7 breaks the "Michael Westen" episode formula we've come to know and love and takes a more cinematic approach. Season 7 has a handful of reunions from Michael's past that bring out both the Angels and Demons kept within Michael. More than anything this season, Michael Westen and his inner being are the spotlight of this final season. We get to see all that is and has made the character over the years-- good and bad.

From the Pilot(S1E1), to episode 111(S7E13) Burn Notice has captivated my heart and mind, a true testament to what can be accomplished on a TV Show's Budget. If you're anything like me, Season 7 will not disappoint. From the Season Premier to the Series Finale (#Final Burn) you'll be kept on the edge of your seat while the writers, cast/crew, and those lovable characters take us down a road I didn't think was possible.

I couldn't have asked for a better Final Season. Grab some Yogurt, you're in for the long haul.

Burn Notice is exceptionally acted, skillfully written and captivating. It is refreshing that a show allows the actors to carry the scenes, not depending on in-your-face or overt shockers for a faux boost that comes together after a shoot. Each episode offers subtle nuances, personality/chemistry and tonal changes that are truly noteworthy. I used to chide others for having "favorite shows" and Burn Notice has provided me the same healthy addiction. The Michael Westen character, while fallible (yet all the more authentic for that reason) makes me think about overcoming odds to do the right thing, even if others do not/cannot/will not understand motives or see the big picture. It is inspiring and motivating...and highly entertaining!

The characters are believable and have developed since season one in depth that continues to endear and surprise. This is a show that for the audience, has set benchmarks that will be tough, if not impossible to follow. Could Michael Westen have been acted any better than by Jeffrey Donovan? No way! Would the dynamics of family and friendship with Michael Westen's character have been better portrayed than by Sharon Gless, Gabrielle Anwar and Bruce Campbell? Highly doubtful. If you have not enjoyed this show from season one you are missing out. Don't hesitate to become a fan! Thanks to Matt Nix, Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle, Bruce, Sharon, Coby and the rest of the cast, writers and crew for seven seasons of great entertainment! Hope to see you all in future projects.

Intense -Unsurpassed - Unrivaled - Unparalleled - Beyond Compare - Supreme - Sensational -Astonishing - Amazing - Extreme - Powerful - Extraordinary and so many more!

The series Burn Notice (BN) is in a category all of its own. BN is one of the best (or possibly THE best) action series in many years...or even ever (Covert Affairs is a good one too). I can't even count how many times I'v watched the entire series!! This season is, well...all of the adjectives above and many more!

When the last show ends you'll find yourself struck in AWE with your jaw hanging and your heart racing (although that often happens with BN). As you all know BN is an amazing action/drama series and this one even better.

You really should get the entire series and watch it before 7. 7 has many references to previous shows so pay attention. If you've seen BN as many times as I have, you'll catch all of them!

This is one of those serious that no-matter how many times you've seen it, when it's on you still watch it! Like NCIS I can just watch it when it's on, BUT it's in a totally different category as BN.

YOU MUST SEE THIS!!!!! YOU MUST SEE THIS!!!!! YOU MUST SEE THIS!!!!!
