Critic Reviews for Burn Notice: Season 5

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It is perfect escapist television and, for those who love it, this satisfying season will tick every single box.

Let's hope Matt Nix can figure out how to put the genie back in the bottle. I have little doubt he will and the premiere was used to tie up a few loose ends before we move on.

The episode itself has a temporary new status quo.

"Company Man" was a fun, curveball of an episode but I don't exactly know where it's placed our characters.

October 20, 2017 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

It's not quite a standard-issue Burn Notice episode, in that there's no client or side-case, and there is some added tension between Michael and his Miami pals now that he's presumably back in the fold, but it's close enough for government work.
