Review - Burn Notice Season 5 Episode 10 Army of One

With the summer finale of Burn Notice right around the corner, my tolerance for the show is dipping quite a bit. After another round of explosions and a lead to begin the episode, I sat there and thought of how stupid the show's format is. Since the first episode, Michael has been hunting for clues to his burn notice and he gets further in each episode. But it just happens over and over and over and over and over again, without fail.

So this week, Michael gets a name after Fiona and Sam kidnap a poor guy and get him to recover data from a computer. Big deal? Not really. We're in for another round of shooting/explosion/escape/bigger bad guy. This wouldn't be too bad if the main plot was remotely interesting. It's the thing with Michael leading around a bunch of dummies, a formula that's been cracked too many times around. The added twist is that there are hostages, but even that scenario isn't fruitful.

Score: 7.9/10
