Looks like Gabrielle Anwar is as confused as the rest of us as to why her
excellent series Burn Notice took a mid-season break last September after
its red hot debut last summer. But thank goodness the series returned last

I did watch and I was tremendously moved and excited and hopeful. I’m
thrilled that this is where we’re at. I actually became a US citizen so
that I could vote for Mr. Barack Obama. I’m a true, certified Obama groupie.
