Burn Notice 6×02 — “Mixed Messages”: Sigh, I guess the writers are determined to stick with angry, angsty Michael for a while, huh? I guess his demeanor fits, given the current circumstances, but this sure isn’t the fun show that I used to enjoy so much. I hated the case of the week (or perhaps “op” of the week would be a better term) because it was all about Jesse and some guest actor that I didn’t recognize. There wasn’t nearly enough of Michael and Sam, and the boys just don’t work as well without Fiona to balance them out. Plus, 2 seconds of Maddie just isn’t gonna cut it either.
I know I sometimes complained about the formulaic nature of the early seasons, but I’ve now come to appreciate the tried and true approach. Bring it back!
