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.

Critic Reviews for Burn Notice: Season 2

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (7)

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.

Between the glamorous Miami setting, the high-tech capering and the dry humor, Burn Notice made for fine summer escapism: gripping but ultimately undemanding.

What was once a summer pleasure is now a bit less pleasurable.

Burn Notice resumes its second season like a sarcastic friend whose absences may not be lamented but whose reappearances are always surprisingly well met.

It's a hipper "Magnum, P.I." with a James Bondian sense of low-key humor.
