There's trouble in paradise for former CIA operative Michael Westen and his cohorts, and the streets of Miami are hotter--and deadlier--than ever before in the action-packed, adrenaline-charged sixth season of Burn Notice! In hot pursuit of his old nemesis, Michael must take down Anson Fullerton and find a way to free Fiona from prison, where she is being targeted by a murderous foe. Michael goes full force to save Fiona as he takes on cold-blooded assassins, diabolical drug cartels, uneasy alliances, and explosive danger at every turn, until an unthinkable tragedy leaves him reeling and rocks his team to the very core.

If you're considering purchasing this box set then I assume you already know and love this show, so my review is more about the actual set. I was very happy when I opened the box. Each season has it's own dvd case with information about the season on the back. The box itself is really pretty on the inside and has the picture of the 5 main characters walking on the outside (the same image Amazon has for the product). I watched the first three seasons so far and the quality is great, even though it's not blu-ray. I was pleased with the video and sound; both seemed to be as good as it gets in DVD. While I was watching I forgot I was watching a DVD because it looked great!
I was really on the fence about spending the money to own this set, but I'm really glad I did. This is an amazing show and this box set doesn't disappoint either.
There's two things that I'd like to mention as possible cons, but neither felt bad enough to lose a star. The first is that The Fall of Sam Axe is not included (I bought it on blu-ray for only $8, so NBD) and the second is that the set is wide, making for awkward placement with your other DVDs/Blu-rays/Box sets. Instead of setting up the DVDs to be in one stack, the box splits them into two stacks next to each other. Depending on how you store your movies and shows it might be hard to find a place for this set, but I don't think that makes the set not worth having!! :)
Overall: If you love this show, don't be turned off by the lack of blu-ray and the long box set. For me, the joy of this awesome show far outweighs these small cosmetic factors.
I have refused to purchase some multi disc series in the past because of cheap packaging that ends up damaging the discs. like the cardboard sleeves do. I am so glad they did not go the cardboard sleeve route that a few other companies have done just to save a buck.
Cons: Not Bluray
DOES NOT INCLUDE "THE FALL OF SAM AXE" must be purchased separately. (it does have a slot for it to be added though)

I will be honest I was scared when I have read that only seasons 1-2 are pal and 3-7+fall of sam, are ntsc since I don't have region free dvd player but all it is, is that the dvds are still region 2 meaning they will play on any pal dvd player (in my case ps3) but the video output will be ntsc, meaning if your tv doesn't support this format you just won't see anything (which If you have hd tv should not be problem)
But on to the dvd review, it's great. The quality of the video could have been better if it was a blu ray release but it's still great.
All the bonus features are great for me Cos I'm a fan but I would not say they're a selling point for casual watchers as they're not that entertaining but they're informative!
Apart from these niggles which make the business of watching several episodes one after the other ('binge' watching) tedious, the picture quality is not that good. Very grainy and 'soft', compared with what could be achieved by Blu-ray, or even modern SD discs.
But I don't let these things spoil my viewing pleasure.
The only reason that i haven't given this 5 stars is because of the shows insistance of recapping at the start of every episode. Any one who watches the show knows the premise, we really don't need the "My name's Michael Westen...." spiel in every episode - especially after season 1!!!!
I wanted to buy Ray Donovan but seeing the prices I would rather do eBay much cheaper. Greed is alive and well especially in Britain.
