    BURN NOTICE


    SEASON TWO

    The Emmyâ*-Nominated Sultry Spy Drama Turns Up The Heat In High-Def
    On DVD June 16 From Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment


    CENTURY CITY, Calif. – When spies get fired, they don’t get a letter from human resources - they get burned. Get revenge as the USA Network original series “Burn Notice” Season Two explodes onto Blu-ray Disc and DVD June 16 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Combining the best action/thriller elements with surprising humor and an iconic new breed of espionage, the second season heats up as blacklisted spy, Michael Westen hones his unique skills for new clientele. After being fired from the IRA and dumped in his hometown of Miami without money or resources, Michael (Jeffrey Donovan; Changeling) struggles to put his life back together and find out why he has been “burned.” “Graced with a sly voiceover and strong supporting characters” (Brian Lowry, Variety), the show also stars Gabrielle Anwar (“The Tudors,” Scent Of A Woman) as Fiona, a beautiful ex-IRA operative who happens to be Westen’s ex-girlfriend, Bruce Campbell (Bubba Ho Tep, Army Of Darkness) as Sam, Michael’s closest buddy in town and Emmyâ Award-winner Sharon Gless** (“Queer As Folk,” “Cagney & Lacey”) as Madeline, Westen’s hypochondriac mother.

    This new season follows Westen as he takes on all new death-defying assignments in hopes of getting closer to his new employers, the people that were possibly responsible for his departure. Joining the cast this season is Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Gallactica”) as Carla, the woman who may be behind Michael’s “burn notice.” The “Burn Notice” Season Two Blu-ray Disc and DVD sets feature all 16 episodes and bonus features such as cast/crew commentaries, gag reel, deleted scenes and more. The Blu-ray Disc set will be available for a suggested retail price of $59.99 U.S. / $76.98 Canada and the DVD set will be available for $49.98 U.S. / $69.98 Canada.

    I would LOVE to buy this. Shame it will be region locked and probably won't get a release in the UK. I just don't understand Fox.

    I agree. It's a breezy, fun caper show that has a marvelous zest in the writing and acting. And the ratings for its second season were up greatly impressing the bigshots at USA.

    Wait, am I missing something? Season 1 isn't available on Blu-Ray is it? Why wouldn't they take this opportunity to release season 1 on BD as well?
