A Pretender reunion on Burn Notice

Posted on August 30, 2011 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Back in the 90s, there was a nifty little show on NBC called The Pretender, which I should probably do a Lost Gem on at some point. It starred Michael T Weiss as an almost unique genius who can be anyone he wants to be and uses his skills to help the innocent and punish the guilty by pretending each week to be a different person.

If that all sounds a bit familiar, maybe it's because you've been watching Burn Notice, in which Jeffrey Donovan plays a spy who uses his skills to help the innocent by pretending to be all kinds of other people.

What's interesting is that Donovan actually played Weiss's brother, another Pretender, on The Pretender.

And this week, who should guest star on Burn Notice except Michael T Weiss. There's fun for you.
