Burn Notice Heads Into Season 8 Nears Episode 100
Burn Notice, a breakout hit on USA, heads into its 7th season this summer. Burn Notice follows the exploits of disavowed CIA spy, Michael Westin, played by Jeffrey Donovan.
The show is rapidly heading toward 100 episodes (here’s an episode guide for you at http://burnoticeepisodeguide.com). Burn Notice started back in 2007, when cable channels like USA began counter programming by putting on original series programming in the summer time, to counter all the repeats on the major networks. And it’s worked.
With a Burn Notice episode guide you can brush up on the back story and subplots and all the goings on with the characters. It gets complicated!
Justified Rolls Along on FX
Justified (see http://justifiedepisodeguide.com for more), based on novels by Elmore Leonard, has found a home on FX as it works its way through season #4. While movies make big money and turn actors into “stars”, it’s television where most of the quality writing and acting parts are nowadays.
No longer is there the stigma attached when a big movie star doing a guest spot (or taking a starring role) on a television show was considered a step down.
This clearly shows in T.V. shows like Justified, where Timothy Olyphant stars as US Marshall Raylan Givens, posted back in his home state of Kentucky.
Without the pressure of expectations on a major network (where shows no longer get time to build an audience, unless you’re a pet project and ratings don’t matter), and being a mid-season show (seasons debuting in January), Justified has been allowed to grow and flourish and is one of the best acted and well-written shows on television today.

Revolution, a new show on NBC, has been the breakout hit of the new fall television season. Revolution is based around the question of what would happen if all the power in the world stopped working.
Not just electricity, but everything whether it was gas powered, wind powered, solar powered or even battery powered. All gone. And no idea how to get it going again.
The show takes place 15 years after the power goes out. In true J.J. Abrams style (think Lost, Fringe, Cloverfield, etc.) he uses flashbacks a lot to bring us the lives of the characters both before the blackout and during the early times, right up to the present.
If early ratings are any indication, Revolution will be around awhile. Check out the Revolution Episode Guide for more information > http://www.revolutionepisodeguide.com

After 5 seasons, Fringe, one of my favorite tv shows, will be coming to an end. As far as ratings, the show started off quite well but ratings deteriorated. You can check out http://fringeepisodeguide.com for more.
Fringe garnered roughly 8 to 12 million viewers in season 1. Season 2 saw a drop to 5 to 8 million viewers.
Season 3 saw a drop to under 4 million viewers per episode a little over halfway through the season and the show never recovered.
Season 4 was only able to get 2.5 to 3 plus million viewers, a far cry from season’s one and two. Sadly, this led to the decision to make season 5 the final season.
Fringe was an interesting science fiction drama that followed what was possible with science today, where that science was going, and the rights and moral obligations we had with this knowledge. Could we really play God? Should we? What would be the consequences of those actions?
This was something with which Walter Bishop, a scientist on the show, struggled. In his younger days, he never thought about consequences. He felt, as a scientist, he only had to deal with the science, to learn and advance our knowledge, not to think in terms of morality, consequences or right and wrong.
