That's not Tubbs!!!
23 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was really hurt that this 2 part episode had to come at the expense of Zito dying. What I found more interesting was that a stand-in was used in one of the major action scenes. During the final action sequence in the shopping mall, Crockett and Tubbs both have driven their own cars to the scene. If you look closely, the man that jumps out of the Cadillac is not Tubbs, but some stand-in. You even see the same guy when he draws his gun. He looks nothing like Tubbs, and actually looks a lot older. Tubbs is not seen throughout the entire shooting bonanza, but later on on Crockett's boat. I wonder why PMT wasn't available for that scene?
