In addition to a fantastic cast, Burn Notice has become famous for its very unique MacGuyver like fight sequences. Whether they're making a rocket launcher out of a pipe and soda cans, a claymore mine out of a microwave and some silverware, or a tracking/listening device out of a tiny pink cell phone, there's just something immensely satisfying about watching Mikey and his crew deal with their enemies via a combination of making weapons out of household objects, advanced special forces hand to hand combat, and general cleverness. More than anything else our heroes outfox their enemies into destroying themselves.
Burn Notice is a great show to just sit back and enjoy the fun fight scenes, the funny moments, and the touching ones as well. And all seven seasons for just a touch over 100$ is an absolute bargain. I highly recommend both this box set and this series.
But there are plenty of reviews out there about this show; I wanted to discuss the Complete Series box set in a little bit of detail for anyone considering it. I have to say that out of several other box sets I have seen and owned, this one is very well done. When you first see the long rectangular form of the box, you might be afraid that they went with the typical method of making a "book" of the series with all of the discs held in cardboard sleeves, which is frankly a terrible way to store DVDs. However, this is not the case with Burn Notice; instead, the cover of the box slides off to reveal a sturdy, top-loading box, containing separate plastic DVD cases for each season (they appear to be the same cases as if you had purchased the seasons separately). This makes storage and use of the discs much easier and safer than most other box sets, and I appreciate that they didn't just go for the cheapest packaging option.
The DVD cases are stored in two rows, four in one side, and three in the other, with a cardboard spacer filling the gap. The good news is that if you remove the spacer, you have enough space to store an eighth DVD - making the perfect place to put your copy of "Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe", which is a nice touch to round out the collection.Read more ›
have missed one. What a great cast that worked so well together. When I watched the last show I teared up..
I became very fond of the chemistry between Michael and Fiona so the final show made me smile.
Thank you for making a great series. My compliments for Matt Nix and his exciting story line and also
to Jeffrey Donovan for his directing also.
My best to Michael, Fiona, Sam, Jesse and Madeline on any other projects that they may encounter. Also,
congratulation to Micheal and his new baby.
I will miss all of you!

The series revolved around Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan). He used to be a spy until he got a phone call in the middle of an operation. Suddenly, he had to get out on his own, something he just barely managed to do. Next thing he knows, he’s been dumped in Miami. For better or worse, it’s his home town, which means having to deal with his chain smoking mother Madeline (Sharon Gless), a woman he doesn’t necessarily get along with all that well with. The only people who are still talking to him are his ex-girlfriend Fiona Glenanne (Gabrielle Anwar), a gun runner for the NRA, and Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell), an ex-Navy Seal who also happens to be reporting on Michael to the feds.
With no job history that he can report, Michael has to start earning money however he can, so he reluctantly takes jobs to help those in need. He takes on your average problems if your average problems happen to be drug runners or gun smugglers or kidnappers or gang members or extortionists or any other number of things. Along the way, he meets Jesse Porter (Coby Bell), a man in a situation much like his own. Meanwhile, he also is trying to figure out who burned him and why so he can go back to work for the CIA. However, that conspiracy may be much more complicated than he ever expected.
For the most part, the episodes followed a pattern.Read more ›

|Fall of Sam Axe||
That picture is customer uploaded, not Amazon. The description doesn't mention anywhere that the Fall of Sam Axe is included so I'm not seeing how it's misleading.

This set I believe to be just the seven season original packaging and art work in one package

Burn Notice Season 2 looks absolutely wretched on Blu-ray, so you are not missing out there. I think it was a combination of poor sales and the high amount of complaints about the picture quality that led USA to forgo issuing any more Burn seasons on Blu. Then again, White Collar Season 1...
