I am pleased with the Season 2 Blu-Ray set I purchased at Amazon. The case was sturdy and all the disks still in their mountings. The picture and sound seem superb on my Panasonic blu-ray. I feel like the player makes more difference than I would normally expect with this digital format. The set is technically fine by my viewing of the first blu-ray disk.
As tv series sets go I am a little sad there aren't more "features". Just missing scenes from several episodes, a few commentary tracks, and a featurette I have not watched yet. I would like to have seen outtakes, gag-reels, making-of mini-documentaries, interviews with the actors, producers, and directors, and additional background information. The Stargate DVD sets did this sort of thing pretty well. These would add to my perceived value of the blu-ray season set vs streaming of the plain shows.
Still, I love Burn Notice I can't knock the blu-ray set. It still gets 5 stars. Keep at it Michael Weston. Your fans have your back.
I hope this helps someone.
Having someone else yanking Michael's chain became a great plot line & Karla was great for that. The clients that Michael got were top notch stories & the underlying theme of trying to find out who burned Michael blended in real smoothly. There were great guest stars this season with Michael Shanks being my favorite. His character of Victor was fantastic. He's a great stick for the carrot. Sam & Fiona were great in their roles. Fiona is a fantastic character right from the very beginning. (I would love to meet & date a girl like her.)
I think that anyone that enjoys good dramas that have good comedy in them will really enjoy Burn Notice. Start with Season 1 & keep going through Season 2. You'll have a hard time to stop watching to do anything else.
I recommend this series & this season to anyone, anyone at all.
I got turned on to this at Netflix and was blown away. This is the best TV show I have seen for a long, long time. Mix Miami Vice, Macguyver, the Bourne movies and add a touch of noir detective voice over, and you get the idea. The blend is fresh, exciting, enjoyable to watch, well written, shot, and acted. There is a great blend of drama, action, and comedy, and the writers manage to throw in plot twists and multiple story arcs which keep one guessing, yet do not feel contrived.
The characters seem real and believable. The mix and chemistry are great, and the development of characters and long term arcs is very well handled at all levels. Good job to everyone involved in this. In this day and age, it is not easy to create and maintain a good show like this.
Highly recommended. I am going to buy seasons 1 and 2, and am waiting anxiously for season 3.
UPDATE July 4, 2010:
I have now purchased the first three seasons and watched them all. The quality holds up nicely and the show remains really good. I am getting to see the 4th season on Hulu, and will buy it when it is out on DVD. The 4th season started out a bit slow, but seems to be getting back on track. Unless the quality of the show tanks, I will remain a fan and buy the series as it is available on DVD.

Burn Notice is the story of a C.I.A. spy who gets fired and left without support, he gets a "Burn Notice"
Whilst he tries to find out what has happened he has time on his hands and so gets sucked into helping people with desperate problems
using all of his spy craft.
He is assisted by a reformed I.R.A. terrorist Fiona, (Also his girlfriend) and a former Navy Seal Sam Axe.
The show is genuinely funny with clever stories plus the ongoing drive to find out why he was fired.
Burn Notice is well written and Jeffrey Donovan is charismatic as Michael.
This is one of the very best, we all really love this. It is good looking, driven by great characters, full of exciting action scenes, with a witty voiceover full of spy hints and tricks. The main characters are likeable and amusing, while the peripheral characters are less annoying this time out. Onto the second series and it is still fresh, with not a single dud episode here.
In each episode Michael Westen goes beyond the law to sort out someone's problems, generally besting the criminal or corrupt with considerable guile. His use of different personas to trick people is a real joy. There is also an overarching story arc where Michael attempts to find out who was responsible for the original burn notice and why. The danger with any series is that they settle into a familiar format and style which then becomes repetitive. The overarching story arc avoids this, as do the shifting dynamics of the key and peripheral characters. The story arc inevitably hots up considerably at the start and end of the series with friends and foes appearing again.
There are a few extras, and the delight of a disc with former Cagney and Lacey star, Sharon Gless on it. Four discs are packed into a standard DVD size, handy if you don't want DVDs taking over your house.
I've got the next series on pre-order and cannot wait for it to arrive. If you enjoy stuff like N.C.I.S. - Naval Criminal Investigative Service - Series 1 - Complete [DVD ], Sledge Hammer - Series 1 [DVD ] and Leverage - Complete Season 1 [DVD] [2008 ] and you can get this then you are in for a treat.
Have only just come across this series and we absolutely love it. It has everything - suspense, intrigue, humour, danger, sunshine
and a great location.
The top four recurring actors are new to us - apart from Sharon Gless - and they are, without exception, all fantastic.
I can see us enjoying this series to the end of production - Season 7 - and it will make great winter watching for us along
with Castle, Blue Bloods and Scandal.
Bring on those cold dark dreary nights - we're ready for them.
The action sequences are brilliantly done, and the cast are very good. Some of the episodes are more entertaing than others.
Overall, I would recommend the series as a top notch american import.
