  • Gloria Goodale

    Brisk and witty, this is a good showcase for Donovan's super-tough-guy-with-a-heart-of-gold persona.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    If “Burn Notice” can keep up the energy and the inventiveness of its pilot, it’ll be a must-see summer series for me.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    The dialogue is always to the point, yet it gives even the bit players enough room to create something memorable.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    These folks know how to hit a note, and hold it, which means "Burn Notice" doesn't wobble around wondering how serious/silly to be. Its pitch is perfect.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    I'll take Jeffrey Donovan as Michael Westen in USA's delightful new action comedy Burn Notice.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    It makes a smart, charmingly irreverent first impression, thanks to its pleasantly warped, deadpan writing and performing.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Gillian Flynn

    A standard detective story that's brightened by unusual characters and snazzy dialogue.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    The show is slick and funny and a lotta fun.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    A little heavy on exposition.... "Burn" is at its best when Westen is outwitting and outracing bad guys.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    Looking for something new and different on TV? It's not Burn Notice. Looking for some summertime fun? It is Burn Notice.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Graced with a sly voiceover and strong supporting characters, it's the kind of breezy romp that dovetails nicely with [USA's] most popular fare and which manages to look more effortless than it surely is.

    Variety Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    This show has no illusions of being anything more than a solidly made and terrifically entertaining TV distraction, neat and crisp as citrus soda.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    Mr. Donovan is likeably lighthearted and cool as a smart-mouthed loner; his character is a watered-down version of the kind of wiseguy once played by Michael Keaton.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    It’s got a low-hum basic-cable charm, fueled by personality, breezy cloak-and-dagger ingenuity and smart-ass dialogue rather than a flashy, budget-driven broadcast network complex.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    The goal is little more than light, disposable summer entertainment — and the show may even get there, if it can strip away some of its more annoying drags.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Entertaining, stylish, and, most of all, slight.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Hal Boedeker

    The show stumbles at maintaining a breezy tone and a professional sheen.

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • Charlie McCollum

    The series is not great television by any means, but it has a kind of breezy charm and sly wit that make it one of this summer's better new shows.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    It wants to be a smart-aleck comedy/thriller hybrid in the spirit of Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen, but the jokes are rarely clever enough and the thrills rarely exciting enough.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    The pilot is neither thrilling nor funny enough to earn notice.
