“My name is Michael Westen. I used to be a spy.”

Burn NoticeI just watched the final episode of Burn Notice, and fuck it, it was amazing. Even though is not that popular, I consider it one of the most awesome series I’ve watched.

The show begun with Michael, a spy for the CIA being burned, this brought him to Miami, where he met with an old friend, a crazy ex-girlfriend, and his mom.

It’s genre was mainly action, but it had some amazing pieces of comedy, drama, and a really deep plot line that can be easily followed.

In the first 6 seasons you get some “spy wisdom”, which are Michael’s monologues telling you common lifehacks and tricks you can use with common items, and even some psychology tricks. Of course, some are not meant to be actually tried out, some are just plain funny, and yet there are many that are 100% useful and can be easily done.

The plot moved away from comedy on the 6th season, on which drama and action started to pour into the characters, and it was considered a “WTF” from fans, but the 7th season made that “WTF” completely worth it. It just blew my mind, and yes, there were many, MANY explosions, just remember is a TV show, not everything is real.

You know spies… bunch of bitchy little girls.
