Too many of those and it will begin to hurt the show because the rest of it is quite intriguing and suspenseful. Batman actually seemed to have a bit more of an animated personality in this one - until he got shot in the gut. That one caught me off guard, but the Detective having an epiphany and helping at the end didn't.
I am not a big fan of Burn Notice either, but some of the actions in that show are more believable. On one episode Westen walked into a security conference and pretended to be a member. The people there started asking questions and chased after him. He ran for his life and, of course, got away.
The makers of this show, I don't how to call it, are just lazy. They must have figured, hey we have the famous "Lost" guy here. Whatever we put out there, those fans will eat it up.
Want to know what else is impossible? People don't walk after being shot in the leg, much less in the leg and in the gut by sniper riffle.
