  • A fun, well-acted episode. Nothing to write home about, though.

    As light as air, but very much watchable, Burn Notice is in no hurry to change gears anytime soon. The main plot this week is benefited by an injection of lighthearted action-scenes, but the rest of the episode never really kicks off in any significant way: Fiona is still trying to bed Michael before he leaves town, and we discover that Michael has some serious daddy issues. And, once again, we're teased about the overall arc during the final moments of the episode. Michael comes off a lot more competent as an agent during this episode, and the fact that we're being introduced to agents from his past fleshes out the character a wee bit, but the show still feels too self-contained, too restricted, and very by-the-numbers. And I really am trying to get my head around Fiona's Americano accent, I am, it's just...well...it's ridiculous. Still, it tickled me when Dublin was casually thrown into conversation in certain scenes.
