Best TV Shows to Watch on Amazon Prime: Burn Notice

Burn Notice is a great show about a former spy. It was on the channel USA Network from 2007-2013, but now you can watch it for free on Amazon Prime.

In total, there were seven seasons of the show, and 111 episodes. Each episode is about 45 minutes-1 hour, so it is another great show to watch if you have a lot of time on your hands. I really enjoyed the show because it is not like your typical crime/detective show; since this was produced by USA Network, I think the show creators had more leeway to experiment compared to shows on CBS/ABC/NBC. This helps to make it feel more unpredictable and dramatic, almost like an HBO show.

The show is about a spy named Michael Westen, played by Jeffrey Donovan, who has been “burned”. Basically, this means that he has been fired as a spy, and it likely has something to do with someone he knows outing him. Throughout the show, Westen tries to find out who burned him, and what exactly the reason is.

While Westen trying to find out who burned him is the overarching plot throughout the show, there are also individual cases in most of the episodes; Westen often helps out people in need whenever he can, while also trying to figure out his own personal life. The balance between the two is always really interesting and dynamic, and the show does a great job of blending them together.

I would say that this show is up there with White Collar as two of my favorite shows of all time. They were both on USA, but I think this just means I enjoy the style of the USA shows. If you enjoyed watching White Collar, I would 100% watch Burn Notice if you haven’t already. If you haven’t seen either show, get watching!

Burn Notice Recommendation Rating: 3

1: Something worth checking out if you have time

This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.

NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.

I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
