Voodoo causes headaches for Crockett and Tubbs
30 June 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Tale of the Goat" is an average episode of "Miami Vice" - while it is a relatively fast moving and good looking episode, it fails to fully engage the viewer. The premise, however, is an interesting one - the boss of a crime organisation who is apparently deceased is seen alive and kicking.

Tubbs has a larger part to play in this tale unlike some of the previous episodes where he has been overshadowed by his partner.

The music from Jan Hammer is excellent as always and there are accompanying tracks from Todd Rundgren, The Fixx, Nona Hendryx and Red Rider.

8 out of 10. Good but could have been so much better.
