For those of us in a certain age bracket, with a certain taste in entertainment, Bruce Campbell was all you needed to say to get us to watch Burn Notice. And for those of us who loved MacGyver or playing Ninjas & Super Spies, getting hooked took only until the first commercial break.
Burn Notice is full of great characters who struggle with what it means to be family, friends, and lovers. They are good at what they do, but not perfect, by any means.
There is just something about watching hyper-competent people make mistakes that feels right and good.
