    Remember the bank hostage episode from two years ago? I do not know why Burn Notice has lost its touch, but that magic from Seasons 2 and 3 just is not present anymore as the show feels so formulaic on a weekly basis. Michael gets a case, he rejects it at first, but eventually decides to help the guy out. Sam mentions a tactic from the 1980's to get them out of a jam, they do it and everyone is happy.

    The show is still good, I have to write that, but lately B Note has just been mailing it in. Hopefully they can turn things around.moreless

    • Michael: You got caught stealing a BB gun?
      Sam: Mike, it was a Red Ryder, okay?

      The Red Ryder BB Gun is a BB gun made by Daisy Outdoor Products and introduced in 1938 that resembles the Winchester rifle of Western movies. It is arguably the most famous BB gun in American history.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Michael: (voice-over) Spies don't always make decisions based on training, experience, or potential success of a mission. Sometimes, it's just a matter of doing what you think is right, even if it means putting your fate in the hands of a stranger.

    • Michael: (voice-over) In a hostage crisis, first contact with the police is critical. One wrong word from a hostage-taker can be the difference between the start of negotiations or the start of an armed assault.

    • Michael: Right now, Sam and I are in the middle of a hostage situation.
      Fiona: Jesus, Michael! Well, tell me where you are and who's holding you.
      Michael: It's more like...we're the hostage-takers.

    • Michael: (voice-over) In the field, you can never count on your first approach being successful. You have to be ready to change tactics on the fly. Spies learn to make lightning-fast observations and connect the dots just as quickly.

    • Michael: (voice-over) Spies don't always have a choice of hiding places. Sometimes it comes down to taking what's available. But if you have to hide in something that's designed to be airtight, you better hope the danger passes before you run out of oxygen.

    • Michael: (voice-over) Spies spend a lot of time traveling, but they don't usually end up in the most desirable destinations. You're much more likely to find yourself visiting a rebel camp in the Philippine jungle or a hidden bunker in the mountains of Pakistan than lounging beach-side in the Bahamas. But even when you do find yourself in a vacation paradise, it's still all about business.
