What was ‘Burn Notice’ about?

According to Looper, Burn Notice hit the airwaves in 2007. It followed the adventures of a CIA agent named Michael Westen (played by Jeffrey Donovan). Michael wakes up one morning to discover that he’s now an ex CIA agent who has been “burned.” This means he’s now considered untrustworthy.

He’s lost his job and has been locked out of all his assets. He’s also not allowed to leave Miami, or he will be arrested. He now has no money, no job, and he’s suddenly an outcast among friends and colleagues. So Michael set out to figure out what happened. Who is after him and why?

For the next seven years, the series followed Michael as he used the skills he learned in the CIA to help people in crisis. He’s the guy they turn to when they can’t seem to get support through official channels. He also searched for answers about why his life changed overnight. 

It was a big hit

Burn Notice aired 111 episodes before it ended in 2013. The Hollywood Reporter says that at the time, it was one of only three series on the USA network that had more than 100 episodes, a benchmark that makes a series very attractive when it comes to syndication deals. 

The show started with a bang, debuting as the top scripted series in the summer of 2007. Its ratings continued to climb over the next seven years. It was so popular that it spawned a standalone TV movie in 2001, called Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe.

It even led to a digital graphic novel named A New Day. If you’re one of the show’s many original fans, or you’re intrigued by its potential for binging, there’s one important question: Where can you watch it?
