Burn Notice has quickly become one of my favorite TV shows for several reasons: explosions, guns, yogurt, mojitos, comedy, drama, romance. And I love the three original main characters, Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan), Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell), and Fiona Glenanne (Gabrielle Anwar). I hope you enjoy my fun tribute to Burn Notice highlighting some of my favorite moments from seasons 1-6. Music is "Bodyrock" by Moby. Burn Notice is the property of the USA network.
