This Thursday night, on USA Network is the Season Finale of Burn Notice. God it feels like this season has gone on forever, the networks really need to get better at scheduling and stop these artificial 5 month breaks. I still love the show, but felt like it lost the momentum it was building because of the break. The same thing is happening with all the CW shows, all the long breaks have taken me out of Gossip Girl, OTH, 90210, Supernatural, etc. Anyway, back to Burn Notice, I love this show and have been on the band wagon ever since I did a weekend Set Visit last summer. It has a very cool cast and slicker setting. This season they really focused a lot more on their, as Creator Matt Nix says, “Serial but missable” mytharc which is who burned Michael and why.
As the story unfolds I’m not sure if I really care anymore. I find the stand alone eps and the relationship Michael has with those around him far more interesting. The PR , Marketing and Creative teams deserve a lot of credit, because BN is one of the few return Cable Shows that continue to do well this year and the clips for this Thursday’s season finale has me looking forward to watching. In preparation for Thursday’s season-ender we have some more interviews with the cast and crew, I’ll post a new one every day for the next few days. These aren’t the ones that EM participated in, if you click the Burn Notice tag you can see all of the EM Interviews. First up is Tricia Helfer. I’m not sure when this particular conference call took place since we weren’t involved. As usual the BN folks are VERY talkative people so this interview is very LONG. I’m not going to edit or format it, it’s a straight copy and paste. It’s a good read.
