I finished KyleXY on Netflix and was looking for another series. I caught an episode of Burn Notice when I was in LA and thought I liked the premise, so I added that to my queue. Unfortunately, Neflix does not have Burn Notice on streaming, only on DVD, so I had to dig up that copy of A Home at the End of the World they sent me awhile back and return it so they'd send me Burn Notice. I have to say, they got my return and sent out the next one within 24 hours of my mail carrier picking it up. That's pretty fast turn around.

I've only seen the first 3 episodes, since they only send one disc at a time. :/ but I am liking it so far. The lead hits a lot of my buttons. I see the discussion on SPN forums all the time about whether or not you'd watch The Dean Show or the Sam Show. I was always kinda on the fence. I mean, until this year I would've said I'd always watch Supernatural just as long as Dean was on it. Turns out that's really not enough, but I didn't have a good feel for what The Dean Show might be like until I saw Burn Notice. I think this is everything I love about Dean Winchester except he's not played by Jensen Ackles. That's a huge, very sad EXCEPT, but *shrug* I guess now we know I would watch the Dean show. LOL.

Also, in the realm of completely random, my butt hurts. I did a weird Spartan Race workout of the day yesterday. I ran out one mile (just under 10 minutes) until I was at the top this hill I like to run. It's a pretty steep hill on a quarter mile loop so you run up one side and down the other without having to turn around and go the other way. So, the workout was a mile warmup, 200 meters to the bottom of the hill, 50 walking lunges, sprint 200 meters to the top, slow jog to the bottom, 50 pushups, 200 meter sprint to the top, jog down, 100 squats (50 regular and 50 plie squats), sprint to the top, jog down, 30 burpees, and 1/2 mile cool down. Um, I do all of that stuff on a pretty regular basis, but never all in the same workout. My butt hates me today, and I think I slept 10 hours, but woohoo!

Oooh, cool! I've always been intrigued by Burn Notice having caught part of an episode once and was all, really have to watch that some day, but never got the chance. I will definitely make the time now! :D

OMG you are a machine woman! Go you! You must feel fantastic being so fit now. Well except for the sore butt! :P So have every right to be so damn proud of yourself hon, you have come so far, well done! :D It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it.

I've bitten the bullet and have made a concerted effort to manage my weight. So far it's been 4 1/2 weeks and I've lost just over 10kgs, so am very happy with myself and feel fantastic. I've got a LONG way to go but am very happy to do what I'm doing for the rest of my life without feeling any hardship or punished. :D I've never had so much energy, it's great. :D

Again I have to say, Go YOU! Congrats on taking control of your health. *g*

I can't make a real comment on Burn Notice yet since I've only seen a few episodes and am waiting on the mail man to bring me more, but I like the lead. He has a lot of the qualities I love about Dean Winchester without the hangup of being all about someone else.

Oh, and I have to say I love that Gabrielle Anwar is in it as well. She's at least my age and wears things I keep saying are 'too young' for me. Hee! Love her.

Now you got me curious about Burn Notice, because you know, I'd totally watch The Dean Show lol.

Btw, a bit OT here. My son told me that Hodgins from Bones looked a bit like Dean. At first I was, like, NOPE. But then, I looked closely at his eyes, and yeaaa ... there *is* a bit of Dean in Hodgins. What do you think?

I'd say check out Burn Notice, but I've only seen a few eps, so I can't say whether it stays good or not. But yeah, it's like watching Dean Winchester be all about Dean Winchester, which is what I'm not getting from SPN anymore.

I kinda agree about Hodgins. Back in the Season One epis, I didn't pay much attention to him, because the giant bushy hair just kinda squicked me out, but after he cleaned up a little, I do catch myself looking at his eyes and expressions the same way I do with Dean, and he's a giant dork, which is also something that I find incredibly endearing about Dean.

I wrote once on a Dean centric forum that Burn Notice was is what would happen if Dean left for the military instead of taking care of his family.

We are re-watching Burn Noice now thanks to Netflix.
