    My nephew (7) got me started on this show. Luckily we have Netflix so we watched the first 5 season’s. We had to wait 9 months for season 6 to air on Netflix’s. (we do not have cable) The 6th season came out on Netflix last Friday. We started watching Saturday night and just finished season 6. I just found out today that this is the last season. What are they thinking?? this is the best show ever!!! I don’t watch a lot of TV and we are all going to hate to see this show go. Wish there was something more we as viewers could do to keep it on the air.

    I am going too REAlly miss this show.. There are only a few shows I watch and this is one of them. I think USA and nix made a huge mistake of ending the and adding so much seriousness to it. I have been watching the seasons all over again and I love the quirky and funny, airy episodes. There is one show I absolutely hate on USA an it is psych. How in the h$”& it’s still on I ll neve know.

    Why is the show ending anyways? Is it the cost of production? Is it low in ratings?? Why USA why?? Good television programs are hard to come by these days.. I tried watching an episode of Graceland but it just doesn’t cut it for me. It doesn’t spark an interest. Burn Notice is one of those shows with great story lines, great actors and you can definitely see the chemistry between all the actors/characters.. I watch USA because of Burn Notice.. I have been watching Notice since the very beginning

    We have been a huge fan of Burn Notice for 7 seasons now. Each season I never thought that the writers and actors could top the previous season however they did each and every time! Personally I would love for characters Mike and Fiona to remain a couple. Fiona is unlike any other character strong, sexy and passionate for Mike. Jessy, Mike, and Sam are always helping the underdog. Mike does it without killing people unless necessary and I love his voice and the way he narrates the scenes. I will be very sad to see it end they are trying to compare Graceland to Burn Notice not a good move in my opinion. Not the same chemistry if you love Burn you will love Graceland I think NOT! If you are going to end Burn please let us have the passionate fantasy of Fiona and Mike getting together and not for the CIA. Like it when they are hero’s and help people. Graceland needs more chemistry, can never compete with the past that Mike and Fiona have from Ireland then meeting again in Miami it’s just so hot!!!

    Please do NOT cancel the show. Look foorward to it every week. I agree with others. Bring back the format of helping other people.

    This is one of my FAVORITE shows & I DO NOT want it to end. I can say that I liked it better when the y were a close “Gang” of “do-gooders” using Their skills to help those in need.
    The cast has such a Unique bond that I could continue to watch forever If they just continued their small business of helping people. I’m a little tired of the CIA Being Michael’s number one priority, And I would love to see Fiona and Michael together.
    With the correct writing staff, this show has several more seasons left. I am very sad to see it canceled, and would love for you is a two change their mind and renew the show.

    I love the show and am EXTREMELY disappointed that it will be ending soon. I watch and record it every week. I watch very little on tv, this was something I looked forward to every week. It is a show you just love, for the cast, plots and adventures with a positive end product. It protrays accomplishments with ingenious story lines. I hope the network changes its mind and extends the life of the show.

    This is one of the best shows ever. Hasn’t gotten old in 7 years. They always axe the good ones because they never look at online consumption. IMDB ratings are more accurate than the Studios!

    Love this show. Can’t wait for new episodes every week. Am I the only one who thinks that this show should continue or what?

  10. K. Padilla says

    Just discovered this show I concur with all the above remarks! It’s a great show and so is the casting! So sorry it’s being cancelled…please keep the reruns on TV!

    Loved this show since day one!!! Can’t believe this is the last season!!! USA wouldn’t know a great show if it bit them in the A**!!!!

  12. rob r. says

    Has usa network lost their minds?! Why would you cancel the best show on television?! Burn Notice has everything you could possibly want. Suspense, action, drama, humor, chemistry, characters we care about and originality too. I hope at the very least another network is smart enough to pick this wonderful show up. Whoever does won’t regret it!

    • says

      I agree please pick this show up we record it so we never miss an episode ! If USA doesn’t want Burn please networks someone pick it up! We love every character the chemistry, humor, passion is unlike any other show!

  13. sefra f. says

  14. Bobby says
