Editor's NoteWhen intelligence agencies need to dispense with one of their spies they serve a burn notice. A burn notice informs other agencies that the spy has become unreliable, effectively ending his or her career. In the breezy yet adventurous tradition of MAGNUM P.I., the USA Network's BURN NOTICE follows Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan), whose intelligence career comes to an abrupt halt after a botched job in Nigeria. Westen returns home to Miami, Florida, only to discover that he has been cut off from all his contacts in the agency and his bank account has been frozen. Without a penny to his name, Westen decides to work as an unlicensed private investigator, using the money he makes to launch his own investigation into his fate with the intelligence agency. Gabrielle Anwar (THE TUDORS), Sharon Gless (CAGNEY & LACEY), and Bruce Campbell (EVIL DEAD) co-star in the continuing adventures of Westen. Included here are all 16 episodes of the series' second season.
