Good memories
25 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know this show was all flashbacks and clips, but it was most of the best, with a really good beginning.

I'm a sucker for the sentimental and this episode was chalk full of it. Also, when I rated this, I had to consider what it would have been like to see it as a Miami Vice episode for that week. Some of the scenes in this episode had not been seen for several years at the time which would have had a much cooler affect than if you were to buy the whole MV box set and hammer (no pun intended) through every season in a month.

One major gripe I do have is that I expected it to be flashbacks from Crockett's point of view, as in life flashing before your eyes. Instead it was a conglomerate of the past with everyone from Vice chipping in a memory.

As "filler" episodes go, they could have done much worse but also much better.
