In my house the USA Network shows “Burn Notice” and “White Collar” seem to follow gender lines. My husband really enjoys “Burn Notice” whereas I much prefer “White Collar.” After watching the hilarious “Burn Notice Roasts White Collar” featurette on the season four “Burn Notice” DVD I understand why our preferences fall this way. “Burn Notice does feature more explosions and sarcastic and clever commentary. My husband enjoys the Michael Westen voiceovers which are a hallmark of the show.
“White Collar” comes across as more cerebral because the characters have to figure out how they are going to outsmart their next suspect. As the “Burn Notice Roasts White Collar” featurette points out, there is a lot of walking and talking that goes on during the show. “White Collar” fits what I like in a TV show, meaning it has more comedy than action and it’s light-hearted.
Actually, both shows are excellent and the new DVD releases offer plenty of entertaining features for dedicated fans.
Combining deadly thrills and intricate plot twists, the explosive Season Four of “Burn Notice” is the show’s hottest season yet! Master-spy Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) is back, and this time, he’s joined by Jesse Porter, a no-nonsense counter-intelligence expert who has been burned himself. Along with go-to guy Sam and the dangerously sexy Fiona, the team takes on a barrage of outlaw biker gangs, drug dealers and a worldwide terrorist threat. As tension mounts, uneasy alliances are forged, friendships are tested, and a lethal game unfolds when Jesse vows to find and kill the one who burned him.
“Burn Notice” Season 4 contains sizzling never-before-seen bonus footage such as “Sam Axe’s Guide to Ladies and Libations,” “Burn Notice Roasts White Collar”, “White Collar Roasts Burn Notice,” audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes stunt featurette, gag reel, and tons of deleted scenes!
Compelling characters and thrilling plot twists make “White Collar” one of television’s slickest, sexiest shows! Matt Bomer returns as sophisticated conman Neal Caffrey, who teams up with FBI Agent Peter Burke (Tim DeKay) to investigate an intriguing array of crimes ranging from extortion to murder. Now, reeling from the death of his girlfriend, Neal struggles to unlock the secret behind a mysterious music box and find Kate’s killer, even as his partnership with Peter begins to crumble.
Featuring exclusive bonus footage and extras including a spotlight on fan-favorite Mozzie, behind-the-scenes with Matt Bomer, “White Collar Roasts Burn Notice” , “Burn Notice Roasts White Collar” and a hilarious gag reel, “White Collar” Season 2 is not to be missed!
