Filled with real explosions and set to a revved-up score, the show plays like a high-tech version of a Stephen J. Cannell production in its mix of action and humor. If yogurt addicts Michael and Fi keep fit, Sam and Michael's mother, Madeline (Emmy nominee Sharon Gless, recalling her role in Queer as Folk), drink and smoke with impunity, but they always come through in the clinch. Furthermore, Tyne Daly drops by for a guest spot, making for a welcome Cagney and Lacey reunion. Though this set eschews commentary, it includes a featurette on the hard-working stunt team and highlights from a Comic-Con panel. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

If you recall from the origin of the series, Westen was a super spy who was put on burn notice. A burn notice is when a spy gets left out in the cold or as he puts it in the voice over at the start of each episode "...when you're burned you've got nothing; no cash, no credit, no job history. You're stuck in whatever city they've decided to dump you in. You do whatever work comes your way." Fortunately for Westen he was left stuck in Miami.
And in Miami Westen was fortunate to have contacts like an ex-flame Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) who has an explosive temper to match her skills with weapons and bombs, a friend from his past and ex-Navy SEAL Sam (Bruce Campbell) who keeps him in touch with information and his mother Madeline (Sharon Gless) who, well, does all the things a worried mother would do. I mean what would have happened had they stuck him in a small Midwestern town?
Westen, played superbly by Jeffrey Donovan, has shown in two previous seasons that while killing was his living while going up against bad men around the world, he truly has a heart of gold. Each episode formed around two core stories, the first being about Michael attempting to find out who burned him and the second being a case where he had "clients" that he had to help with one problem or another.Read more ›
Regardless, season 3 is definitely worth owning, but unless you're a die hard fan that needs to have these episodes on display right now, consider waiting for the price point to drop. You're pretty much getting JUST episodes with these DVDs, and it would be a much cheaper route to just purchase the episodes in a digital format instead of shelling out close to 50 bucks retail. Let's hope season 4 gives us the stuff we want to see with a television DVD release.
EDIT: The specs of the season four DVD set (releasing this summer) are quite promising. Kudos to them picking up the ball again.
Updating this review in late August....I had a hunch Matt Nix's focus was too divided what with starting the new series, "The Good Guys." Maybe that was the reason he didn't take the time and effort to add the expected extras to the BN 3rd Season DVD set. Even so, I dutifully, set the DVR to record the new series, expecting it to match the caliber of BN. Gave it a shot but couldn't make it past the 2nd episode. Not a winner and, sure enough, it's been pulled.
Message to Matt: You're probably not a "one-hit wonder," but, seriously? You've hit the target on Burn Notice. But try to stay humble. I'm of the opinion that your creation, its concept and writing, are all first rate....BUT....without the cast you have in place, it may not have been such a hit. As good as BN has been, it's the synergy (hate that word) of all the elments in BN that have made it a winner, including the ones you don't have to renew contracts with....the gorgeous city of Miami and God's glorious ocean. Those components were completely absent in Good Guys.Read more ›
