I just got done ripping "Honor Among Thieves?" from Season 4, so I thought I would make a positive comment to balance my negative one. This is probably Don Johnson's best piece of acting in this season, maybe the whole series. There were many truly great episodes, "El Viejo", "Shadow in the Dark", "Out Where the Buses Don't Run", "Down for the Count" "Payback", "Definitely Miami", etc. But this one does not get the same buzz, probably because it is carried by the force of the acting, not the shootouts or action scenes...in fact it is the shooting at the first that sets up the rest of the show. I know the end is a bit weak, where the gun runner dies (his fall is lame, I admit), but the strength of the episode is that it takes what Vice usually dishes out for entertainment, a shootout, turns it on it's head and makes the hero, Crockett, a bad guy for doing the right thing. I think it is one of the top 5 episodes of the whole show - give it a look.
