My name is Michael Westen. I used to be a spy. Until I got a burn notice, I was blacklisted. When you're burned, you've got nothing: no cash, no credit, no job history. You're stuck in whatever city they decide to dump you in. Miami. You do whatever work comes your way. You rely on anyone who's still talking to you. A trigger-happy ex-girlfriend... An old friend who used to inform on you to the FBI... Family too... if you're desperate... Bottom line? Until you figure out who burned you... you're not going anywhere.

A “burn notice” is an official statement issued by an intelligence agency to other agencies. It states that an asset or intelligence source is unreliable for one or several reasons, often fabrication. This is essentially a directive for the recipient to disregard or “burn” all information derived from that individual or group.
