Review - Burn Notice Season 4 Episode 14 Hot Property

I wonder how I would feel if I watched Burn Notice for the first time tonight. Would I be on the edge of my seat? Excited? After nearly four seasons of watching the team pull of scheme after scheme, I've become rather jaded about the show. I watch passively--follow the story, get the gist of the burn notice progression, but mostly I don't really care. I can't remember specifics, but everything feels likes it's been done before, even if it is cool.

"Hot Property" features the return of Natlie who, if I remember correctly, pretended to be a kidnapped woman and Fi bought her story completely, so their relationship is strained to say the least. She has the team steal a dangerous gas before double crossing them. The gas is recovered in the end and Natalie is turned over to the feds. Along the way, Michael and Jesse come to an understanding after Madeline's urging. And the search for Walsh leads to an auction which Jesse procures enough money for. Overall, "Hot Property" is a good episode with plenty of confrontations, and stays largely in familiar territory.

Score: 8.7/10
