Burn Notice (season 5)

{4.5/5} “As a spy, you get used to the idea that you sometimes have to ask your enemies for help. It’s not an easy thing to do but unfortunately the best information is often in the hands of the worst people.”

Michael is finally back in the employ of the government. After being stuck in Miami for 4 years he gets to make trips to exotic places like Venezuela and Canada. The people who burned him have all been dealt with — although he does have some lingering questions. Meanwhile, there are still people who need his help. Jesse now has a day job in private security but he helps out when he can.

Burn Notice season 5 originally aired in 2011.

As with season 4, the individual episodes remain gripping. The ongoing story is a bit wearying, with Michael being forced to do things he doesn’t want to do by yet another person. Of course, it would be risky to change the premise of the show.

The season ends with a fairly surprising conclusion, that makes you immediately want to start watching season 6.

Dylan BakerĀ (Spider-Man 2) plays Michael’s boss, Raines.
