What could make for better television than rogue spies and women in bikinis? Not much, I say. Miami is the setting and spying is the game.
A spy has gotten his 'burn notice' (that is you're fired in spy talk) and decides to return to his hometown of Miami. He is out of money and wants to get to the bottom of who had him 'burned'. To make some money he takes some freelance jobs as a detective.
Watching this television show you get humour, espionage, action, twists, and suspense. Former CIA operative Michael Weston (played by Jeffrey Donovan) has been blacklisted in the intelligence community and has to rely on his training to somehow get his stolen identity back. He is helped with that goal by his ex-girlfriend Fiona (played by Gabrielle Anwar), a former IRA affiliate herself. Michael does have to get to the bottom of who burned him before it is too late.
