This latest season of BURN NOTICE, one of the best TV shows on the air right now, was decidedly different in tone if not in execution as Michael Westen, Fiona Glennanne, Sam Axe and Jesse Porter face a much more insidious threat than they have before on this show, and this show has seen plenty of threats.

We begin with Michael being embraced once again by the CIA, under the purview of his old handler Raines (the always great, but sadly under-used Dylan Baker) and while he's in a probationary period, he's putting all of his old skills to work with his new partner Max (Grant Snow) and has a new case officer, the sharp and attractive Agent Pearce (Lauren Stamile). He's living in something resembling bliss also, with Fiona moved into his loft, desperately trying to make the place more hospitable. Sam is back down to his "fighting weight", as we saw in the tie-in TV movie THE FALL OF SAM AXE, and Jesse has a flashy job with an independent, high-profile security contractor. Madeline is also dating!

The first few episodes of the season deal mostly with Michael sliding comfortably back into working as a spy again, bantering with his pals, becoming somewhat domesticated by Fi, and outwitting the bad guys. Things turn for the worse with a shocking death that Michael is intended to be framed for, and our heroes scramble to track down the real killer, while keeping the intrepid Agent Pearce off their backs.

I am a huge fan of this show, but I don't completly agree with the other reviewers about how great the last season was. It was still very good, just not like it has been in the past. The only real standout in this season was Gabrielle Anwar's Fiona. You were able to see new depth to her character that you hadn't before. In past seasons she was always willing to do whatever it took to help their clients, but the show never explored her as a person. This season we were better able to see what she was willing to sacrifice for the greater good of those whe loved, even if it was her freedom. This was a big turnaround for someone who I always thought was a little selfish and narrow minded. Like I said she was always willing to do whatever it takes, but usually in her own terms. She relentlessly pursued her relationship with Michael, but she would always threaten to walk away if he did something she didn't like. While the changes in Fiona were good, I did not always like the changes in Michael. Too many times this season, he went too far, and sometimes it looked like the othere could never pull him back. I think the she runners were trying to show us what he was like pre burn notice now that he was back with the CIA, but I still did not like the changes. These things I could have forgiven and still given the season 4 stars, but the worst part was the shows under utilization of Bruce Campbell. I felt that Sam spent most of the season in background. I think that he is one of the best parts of the show, and I hate that he was only used for occasional comic relief. All in all, I still love burn notice, and faithfully await the next season.

I had been getting a bit tired of Burn Notice. It was becoming too obviously formulaic and the antagonists were getting sillier and sillier. Each season the people Michael's team was fighting against became ever more powerful - they could circumscribe world governments and they became less and less believable as time went on. What new super power of evil would the team be fighting against next, I asked myself after Season Four - the Devil? I stopped buying the DVDs after Season Two - But. I can't wait for Season Five to become available. The creation of Anson as the antagonist is inspired. He really could qualify as the Devil; he is so believable that it is chilling. He has tied the previous four season together as we get glimpses into Michael's past. The use of a highly intelligent, skilled psychologist as Michael's foe, bringing the evil back to one man, makes the series believable again.

If you think of Anson as Archangel Lucifer and Michael as Archangel Michael - the two ultimate warrior foes - we could be set for an heroic battle in the next season. I can hardly wait for next summer.

Best show to come a long ever! It is more realistic and believable. Fiona and Michael need a little more romance. Best of all,it is interesting enough for both men and women to enjoy together. Being Irish born,I can relate to them. We started watching it because there was nothing better on. And boy were we glad there was nothing better on. It has become our number one show,the only one we hate to miss. I can't wait to see the next episode. A big thank you to the writers and especially the actors who do an awesome job. Your fan sewma

What changed this season? A new producer? Something? I watched seasons 1-4 in preperation for season 5, and was immediately struck by jerky, badly cut filming during scenes, stiff character postures, terrible dialogue and a wooden serious atmosphere. I felt like characters had turned into charicatures of themselves, trying too hard, acting over the top, ect. Example: Fiona had turned into a girly girl more concerned with her hair, clothes and vacation spot than anything worth while. She's always been a fashion minded, at times femanine woman, and I find no fault with that, because she always had an edge and a strong attitude, a strong person.

Scenes were rushes, clipped and jumped from face shot to face shot on who ever was talking. I didn't see any of the nuances that I had come to enjoy with Burn notice, the facial expressions and subtle tones of voice that conveyed more than words alone could. I went online to see if I could figure out what, if anything has changed, but in the end it doesn't really matter I suppose. Overall, I am very disappointed in Season 5 so far.

Okay, so the season has gotten a little better as it has gone on, or maybe I've gotten used to the "different" prsentation. I'm feeling a little more invested in the plot and I'm feeling more interested in the characters. The narration has also improved (those times when there is a few seconds of freeze frame and Michael gives us a bit of explination or insight into spying and such which were one of the best points I felt). I've upded my review by one star.
