Another strong early "Vice" tale
2 March 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

From the dramatic pre-credits sequence involving an unexpected shooting and a high-speed chase involving two vans, "Cool Runnin'" is an exciting and witty episode that is not short of real emotion.

As with so many episodes of the series, this is an example of excellent television. It is simply a joy to behold - every scene is a gem. Although "Miami Vice" has a gritty edge to it, there's always an element of escapism to the proceedings, even if it's just an opportunity for the viewer to admire the beauty of Miami itself. Not all of the scenes are set in beautiful surroundings, of course. This tale certainly has its seedy locations and they add genuine atmosphere to the proceedings.

In this episode, Crockett and Tubbs realise they're both prepared to cut corners in order to get the right result.

The late, great Charlie Barnett makes his first appearance in the series as the likable Neville 'Noogie' Lamont.

8 out of 10.
