Prepare To Be Scorched!

If you haven't seen USA Network's breakout action series, you've missed out on a great show. Burn Notice features slam-bang action, violence, quirky characters, the absurd, crackerjack one-liners, and Bruce Campbell. Yep, this one has it all.

And it's coming out on DVD June 17th. This is a series you'll want to own if any of the above interest you.

Jeffrey Donovan plays Michael Westen, a CIA operative who's been burned (declared untrustworthy) and put on ice down in Miami instead of killed. All his assets (money and former contacts) are cut off from him. He's literally homeless.

In order to find out what happened to him, he has to set up business as an unlicensed private eye and only gets bottom-of-the-barrel cases no one else will touch. And clients that lie to him.

He reluctantly enlists his ex-girlfriend Fiona Glenanne (Gabrielle Anwar) to help him. Unfortunately, they have a bad history together, she's an ex-IRA member, and violence is foreplay for her.

Bruce Campell plays Sam Axe, an ex-Navy SEAL, who did a lot espionage work himself.

The Burn Notice DVDs are supposed to have commentary by cast, creators, and crew on every disc. That alone is going to be worth the buy-in on this set.

The series is also the basis for at least three novels that will start hitting the shelves in August '08.

Man, I do love this show. I had not heard about the DVDs, but I'll be buying these badboys for sure.
