Really enjoyed the "Detective Cagney and Detective Lacey" joke. Show seems to be utilizing the supporting players better this episode. This show seems to be off to a good start and I am ready for the next episode.

Yeah, it was good to see more of Bruce Campbell and that he'll be a part of future stories and not just someone who comes in and out of various episodes since I couldn't tell how much of a role he'd play from the pilot.

Not as good as the premiere, but still a great show.

Yeah, in her first scene even.

I liked BC more in this episode (he played a bigger part), but the episode kind of dropped in quality. I was thinking it should have been longer, like the pilot.

I agree the second episode wasn't quite as good, but it was still pretty strong. If that's the worst the show gets, we'll be very lucky.

I'm surprised so many liked the accent here. In other places, I have seen people complaining about the Irish accent. I am guessing that was probably a note from the network. I'm with you fellas, though -- I liked it.

I echo what was said already: second episode not as strong, but I'm certainly glad Bruce got a lot more to do this time around. But, there just wasn't enough MacGyver-ing.

It's funny how he doesn't really care about the little jobs he's doing, it's all just a means to an end, figuring out who burned him.

Two episodes in, and it's already becoming a can't-miss for me.

True, but there was a nice bit of Bourne-esque espionage chicanery in the pre-credits bit. I loved that whole scene.

I guess I'm in the minority in thinking the second episode was just as good. This one's easily on the season pass for me.

I couldn't be happier to find this hidden jewel of a show! I had my summer viewing pinned on John from Cinci, but that just didn't work out for me.

Actually, I need to give credit to my wife; she caught a random ad for the show and tivoed it. First she finds The Dresden Files, now Burn Notice. I'm really losing my touch on finding shows before her...

What I like about this show is that it's a combination of old shows for me. It has the Magnum/McGyver/Silk Stalkings feel that just cracks me up.

I also thought this episode was on a par with the first. Both had occasional pacing problems but were lots of fun. Glad to see Donovan as the lead.

Dug the second the show too. Would like to see/hear Fiona's Irish accent come back. Big laugh from the Cagney & Lacey line. A good balance thus far with the odd jobs and finding out who/what's behind him being 'burned'.

The 2nd ep was a bit better than the first I think. Im really liking this show. I wonder if itll be an 8 ep season like Monk.

Has anyone seen the bonus stuff on USAs website?

Really liked this episode as well, and the show is already a can't miss for me. I think that I read there was 13 episodes planned for this season, but I could be wrong.

Burn notice got 3.944 million viewers for the second episode. Almost identical to it's premiere, which means that it didn't lose any audience.

Does this show take place in Miami? I couldn't tell...

Also, while G.Anwar is super hot and all, she's done something to her lips that makes her look kinda weird, and it's creeping me out a little.

Oh, and I coulda' done without that high school girl's silly antics, but it was a fun episode nonetheless.

Still hot, though. But the lack of accent is really starting to bother me. I do like that she's hiding a slight lilt, though, as though she's a Mick with a good, but not flawless american accent. Nice touch.

I agree, it looks as if she is putting lipstick a little bit around her lips to make them look bigger instead of just on her lips . Looks horrible though.
