A stunning episode - thrills, spills and unexpected twists for the show
2 March 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Calderone's Return" starts in an undramatic fashion with a light-hearted pre-titles sequence involving Zito and Switek on surveillance duties. As soon as the theme tune and credits have ended, the show shifts gear and the action begins. When the men that Zito and Switek are assassinated by a professional hit-man, a list turns up with Crockett's name as a future target. Crockett's life is never a simple one - he is faced with the double whammy of a potential divorce or the possibility of a swift death from an assassin's bullet. To make matters worse, it transpires that Calderone himself has requested the hits.

Jan Hammer recognises the need for some first-class music in this episode and we are provided with the first appearance of the excellent "Crockett's Theme". Even the Pointer Sisters are "So Excited" at the ensuing action that unfolds.

Ending on a dramatic freeze frame and the sound of squealing tyres, we are advised that this tale is "To Be Continued".

9 out of 10. A genuinely exciting and emotional episode.
