So we watched the first episode of Burn Notice

Ten days ago*, a crack spy was cut off for something he may or may not have done. He promptly escaped from the Nigerian Warlord he was standing next to at the time to the Miami underground. Today, still followed around a lot by the FBI, he survives as a soldier of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if he can be arsed, maybe you can hire Michael Westen

Very good fun, very silly, and getting by on some nice action sequences a certain amount of grittiness and a whole load of charm. I suspect that the general pattern is going to be much like the A-Team's job of the week, albeit somewhat less silly. I like that they're giving him an arc, so that there's something to follow through. Bruce Campbell is awesome as ever, and I'm hoping that Gabrielle Anwar get's less annoying as she goes along**.

We enjoyed it enough to have ordered the first season DVD***


*Seems close enough by my reckoning.
**And that her Irish accent does something so that Julie doesn't make faces whenever she opens her mouth. Apparently "it's better than some, but not great".
***The first thing to get hit by my resolution.
