Burn Notice - TV Series
 
Is anyone else following this series now? I'm not usually into American TV shows but now I've downloaded the latest episodes this, it's possible it's actually getting better! :thumbup:

It's not like Bond type spy film because: 1. Cracked ribs hurt. 2. The only clever devices are of the two cellphones wired togeather or homemade napalm. 3. The bad guys are, pretty much, normal people.

Nicely shot with great locations, plenty of nice totty and dare I say it's actually quite funny in places! (I mean for an American series, of course ;)).

Torrents are available and we're still only half way through series 2. Well worth a try IMO :).

I do not watch anything American apart from LOST and that is only when I am in the mood.

Except for this and sometimes The Simpsons I'm with you there really (Except for "Lost", after one and a half episodes I gave up caring if they where going to get off the island TBH).

It's easy to watch the Sopranos, watch the first two and last two episodes. All the others are pretty much like the first two.

Not so sure about Family Guy myself actually, bits I find funny but it's not very consistant.

If you wanna watch something really good, I suggest The Wire. Excellent show.

I'll check that out.

I've been downloading this thing by Simon Schama (who I notmally find very, very boring) called "The American Future - A History" and it's actually very good :).
