Season three of BURN NOTICE does much to forward the story of ex-spy Michael Westen's attempt to rejoin the spy world while at the same time rounding out the story of Michael Westen the human being. While that may not sound like much in a weekly action series that takes some doing. To do so with the perfect combination of action, humor and story is even tougher. But the people behind this series make it seem easy.

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.

I would never promote drug usage of any sort, but this show is media crack! They lure in the audience with their superb storylines, witty banter, romantic teasing, and "how-to tips." The chemistry between the cast and the way they outsmart the bad guys...priceless. Throw in some interesting clients and wacky side-kicks and you're hooked. I started watching the show during it's third season. After viewing a couple of episodes during a marathon one day, I found myself out purchasing seasons 1 and 2 DVDs. I fell in love. In season 3, you will see how the characters have developed and genuinely love each through thick and thin. Now, I'm going through withdrawals waiting for the remainder of season 3 to return in January 2010. What can I say? I'm addicted. This IS must see T.V.

Our family thinks "Burn Notice" is the best show on TV now with "The Closer" 2nd. Great character development on both shows. Note: To get the full flavor of both shows and the character development, we think you should start at Season One with both series. No matter how tempted you are to get to the "meatier" shows in the following seasons, take the time to watch season one's set-ups for both of them. Don't get us wrong, they are *both* great first seasons, but the characters and plots get much more complex as the shows mature. Trust us on "Burn Notice" however, the shows a winner, and should be up for multiple Emmy Awards. This show has some of the best writing, casting, acting, directing and editing on TV.

Its a great show with a dynamite cast and great writers, all with a sense of humor to add a light touch to things. Its nice to have a show thats not a sitcome that has characters you can like. This has got it all.

Chances are if you're reading about season 3 of Burn Notice, you're already a fan of the show. I'm not going to talk about the episode quality in detail here, it's the same fun show it always was. But this DVD set is completely bare bones when compared to seasons 1 and 2. There are no audio commentaries, no gag reel, no deleted scenes, pretty much no extras to speak of except for two short, simple featurettes involving the stunts of the show and some fun with Bruce Campbell at Comic-Con. These extras were alright...but that's all you get.

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.

ALthough this isn't some masterpiece, the characters are well developed, not overhyped and cheeky. The whole series takes on a smart, creative, and tongue in cheek attitude. Think classic Sean Connery Bond stuff. All set in sunny, bikini-laden miami. I'm never bored and can never quite tell what's going to happen (other than Michael solving the problem in an original, interesting way). Highly recommended as fun & smart spy series.

Lack of any commentaries, gag reel, outtakes, deleted scenes makes this DVD set a real disappointment. Matt Nix, we can assume this was your decision....you addressed this on your tweet as a message to those who wanted this, saying it would be tough to get everyone together and how tough it is to find the time or some such garbage. Not a good decision, Matt. Has the show become so popular that you don't think you have to give the extra effort anymore? Check out the message boards on the show's page on USA Network to see that your fans are not happy with this. Never a good idea to take your fan base for granted.

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.
