Another great Season of Burn Notice
on July 13, 2016
Season 6 of Burn Notice makes up for a somewhat less than stellar Season 5. Personally I have never liked the plot device of inserting a primary character in prison. Sure it's understandable that writers want to amp up the drama by putting someone viewers care about into jeopardy but the prison scenario has been overdone and is so full of cliches that it's painful to watch. The season of the excellent "Justified" where Ava Crowder was in jail was the worst- everytime the action switched to that storyline it was tedious. That said, my fears for more of the same this season with Fiona in prison were not assuaged by the first few episodes. Fiona went through the usual prison stuff (threatened by other cons, dealing with corrupt guards, etc.) and it looked bleak but happily Matt Nix and company bail her out after a few episodes. Afterwards the show really picks up steam and was back to the great action packed series the fans love. Some crazy things happen and the killing off of a significant recurring character was quite a surprise too. So glad Nix and his team have redeemed this great series and I'll be sad to watch the final Season 7 knowing it's all over. Surprising technical glitch was when gun-happy Fiona threatens to give a guy a "9mm tracheotomy" when she's holding a Walther PPK on him. The problem is the PPK is not chambered for 9mm; .22 and .380 yes, but no 9mm.
