The incredible thriller that is Burn Notice has come to dominate the ratings of television. With its intelligent plot, dynamic characters and spy vs. spy intrigue, this show has attracted an incredible following. This film, which is one of USA network’s biggest hits, has just been renewed for an incredible 7th season and shows no signs of slowing down.
While most series only last 1 or 2 seasons depending on popularity, Burn Notice’s 7th season shows that the show is popular and here to stay. It is known for its appeal to all age groups and walks of life because of its excellent writing and incredible characters.
In order to fully appreciate the staying power of this show and its status of king on USA Network, It is important to consider its past. Where it came from and how it appeals to so many thousands of people are important questions to consider and we need to first take a look at its basic premise.
What is a Burn Notice?
The concept of basing a show around a burn notice is an inspired one. A burn notice is, in short, a shunning of an agent. Intelligence agencies send out burn notices to inform any and all agencies that the person mentioned is considered highly suspect or unreliable. This, one can assume, can easily destroy an agent’s life. He or she has suddenly lost their job, their contact and even their history.
That, in a nutshell, is what happens to our protagonist Michael Weston. In the blink of an eye he goes from a super-spy to a complete nothing with no credit history, records or even identity. He has to rely on family and friends that he left behind years ago to help him get his life back together. Thankfully he has some strong backers in his corner with his old flame Fiona (played by Gabrielle Anwar) and Sam Ax as played by the king of the B-movies, Bruce Campbell.
Each of these characters, as well as his rather unique mother Madeline(played by Sharon Gless) help him to solve cases to make ends meet while working to get his name cleared. The incredible rivalry and charisma that this diverse cast of characters brings to the show is no doubt a large part of what makes this show so popular.
Another important part has got to be the unique and intelligent plots. Each case that Michael Weston and friends (and family) take together is always a great challenge and a lot of fun. From infiltration to gadgets, this show has everything that a thriller lover could ever want. The fact that these plans are always developed using wit and charm increases the depth of the schemes.
