Oh, right. I forgot. Where was I?

I’m actually trying to say that the second season of Burn Notice, a delightful little lighthearted action/drama/mystery/near-sitcom show, starts this Thursday. It’s about this guy named Michael Westen (played by Jeffrey Donovan ["he’s sooo cute” comes up from downstairs]). He’s this super spy guy who gets fired. Burned. And all his money and everything else disappears too. So he’s stuck in Miami Beach, all sun and bikini babes, trying to figure out what happened. Being flat broke, he does whatever he can to avoid moving back in with his nagging, chain smoking mother (excellently played by Sharon Glass) and deadbeat brother. That “whatever he can” is the weekly episode of him helping out some regular schmoo who’s being screwed over by the mob, the government, cheating business associates, etc. And for a few bucks Michael solves the weekly case by being a combination of MacGyver/A-Team/Mission Impossible and The Saint. And sometimes he finds a clue about who burned him.

Along the way he gets a little help from his one remaining friend Sam (Bruce Campbell), who used to be another spy guy but now he’s a bit of a drunk. And more than a little help from his mostly-girlfriend Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar. You saw Pacino in Scent of a Woman? That was her). She makes it all worth watching. That is, if you appreciate former models who have matured a bit but still kept their slender shape. Damn. Wow. Fiona is this former IRA assassin. Fiona is smart and dangerous, and always just this close to violence. Which makes her sexy as all hell. Oh, and Michael has a nice old Charger Sebring to drive, though it frequently needs work as it’s always getting shot up or set on fire.  Season Two will also feature more of Tricia Helfer, former underwear model turned actress. The one who played the Cylon Number 6 in Battlestar Galactica. Not that there’s anything wrong with that either.

It’s a fun show, light and breezy, and the eye-candy factor for guys who are over 30 is first class. ["But he’s sooo cute!!” comes up from downstairs again]

Two other USA shows, Monk and Psyche, start up on Friday. Both are funny in their own way and usually worth watching. But they don’t have Gabrielle.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
