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.

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.
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.
This is an entry-level episode of sorts, which might be good if new people begin watching the show from here on in.
