Decent episode...but who's doing continuity?
4 August 2007 | by frankenbenzSee all my reviews

Considering Crockett's black Ferrari Daytona was blown to smithereens in episode 2 it's hard to explain how it shows up in this episode. Zito's beard appearing and disappearing from one episode to the next was an issue before, but this one takes the cake.

Another issue that's really getting under my skin are the A-Team like shootouts where the bad guys couldn't shoot straight to save their lives. One of the greatest strengths of Miami Vice was it's realism, but with more and more studio sets and silly shootouts popping up, I'm starting to lose respect for this series as I revisit it for the first time since I was a kid.

All in all, this is decent episode with a great cameo by Willie Nelson.
