Winter's Hottest Show

If you haven't seen Burn Notice, USA's show about a blacklisted spy, we suggest you take a mental break and escape to the alluring Miami landscape where the series takes place. It's got the style and dry humor of James Bond mixed with the non-stop action and clever tricks of MacGyver. Not to mention, the protagonist, Michael Westen (played by Jeffrey Donavan) has one of the sharpest TV wardrobes this side of Sterling Cooper. His iconic, all-American aviator shades and crisp, cool suits would make any man consider joining the spy-trade. Trust us, this isn't a show you're gonna want to miss. - Jack Archer

Thursdays at 10 pm EST on USA.
