Burn Notice: Season 2 - Rotten Tomatoes

Burn Notice: Season 2 (2008-2009)




Critic Consensus: Burn Notice's sophomore season marks the welcome addition of Tricia Helfer to the cast, but otherwise continues the predictable -- and thoroughly enjoyable -- formula of its inaugural year.

Tv Season Info

In the second series, Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) is still looking for answers about his burn notice. He finds a lead in the mysterious Carla (guest star Tricia Helfer), who works for the organization that lead to his dismissal and who recruits Michael to perform tasks for her. But while he plays Carla's game, he also keeps up his day job helping out Miami locals plagued by an assortment of shady characters, including con artists, smugglers and thieves. By his side through it all, as always, are his faithful pal Sam (Bruce Campbell), his ex Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) and his mom, Madeline (Sharon Gless).

Critic Reviews for Burn Notice: Season 2

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (10)

The series was clicking so well by the end of last season that the idea of changing the format seemed odd. But despite the introduction of Carla, season two "Burn Notice" is pretty much the same as season one.

The interplay of the core group has enough ambivalence and shadows to keep the show intriguing.

Not only an entertaining blend of action and drama, but also contains a wonderful sense of humor.

While the first season had a bit of a rocky start as they smoothed out the problems in the pilot, the second season has really taken off.

It's got great performances (especially from Donovan who should be fielding offers to lead movies at this point), brilliant writing, and rewards both causal and faithful viewing.

"Lesser Evil" might be the best episode of a series full of brilliance.
