'Cool Runnin' concerns itself with dead cops and crazed Jamaicans but the real action is with a new recurring character: Noogie Lamont. And between you and me, he's a great addition to the show. When done right, a rap-layin' hustler can add some flavor to the proceedings, and Charlie Barnett's spastic physical comedy really makes it a likable character. Barnett's also got some nice chemistry with Don Johnson and it adds more definition to Crockett. The guy actually cares about his informants.

Noogie never got a chance to overstay his welcome on the show, and it's always nice when he shows up in an episode.

7/10
