This Hulu clip is from the ‘Ask a Spy‘, part of the Burn Notice series from USA Network. In this clip, master spy Michael Westen (portrayed by Jeffrey Donovan) tells you how to Burglar Proof your home.
Great, so now pro thieves will be kicking out your drywall too.
Like the show, the clip is semi-serious information blended with a wry sense of humor. I’ve been catching back episodes of it on Hulu and enjoying them so far. The series is supposed to come back on the air in the summer of 2008 with a second season. I guess that’s as long as the writers strike doesn’t delay it.
What is a ‘Burn Notice’? In espionage terms it’s when an intelligence agency brands a former employee as being unreliable in some way, particularly to other intelligence agencies. In the series, Michael Westen gets dumped back in his hometown of Miami after being ‘burned’. He has no resources other than his considerable spy skills so he puts those to use and tries to put his life back together. Of course, action and wry humor ensues as he deals with everything from tense relationships to exploding cars while trying to put his burned life back together.
