Photo: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment. I hope this photo is all right to post. I love this lady, and really want to honor her acting abilities here. Always one of my favorites, Sharon Gless has exceeded herself in her very touching, funny and wonderful role as Michael's Mom in Burn Notice, one of my all time favorite TV shows. Not only is this show well written and cleverly conceived, the acting is a treat. With a cast of professionally topflight actors, every week is an hour of the quality television which makes owning my TV worthwhile. I don't own TV shows as a rule, but that rule is shattered for Burn Notice! Madeline is my favorite character, and since I well remember Cagney & Lacey I recognize the character! Very crusty, very practical and educated in the school of hard knocks, this feisty lady has given mature women a lively, rich, funny and admirable icon. I mean I could hang out with this lady and we'd get along fine.
