Aptly named, this one's a downer
7 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fresh off the series opener and right out the gate, the show's focusing on the tragic side effects of being a Vice cop. The clothes are flashy, the car's a dream, but Crockett and Tubbs rely on solid backup during an operation. And they walk that line on a daily basis, always at risk of getting in too deep and losing sight of what's important. This is what makes 'Heart of Darkness' resonate.

To that end, Ed O'Neill does a pretty good strung-out cop performance, and there's a sinister undercurrent running throughout all of this. Even so, that's one bitter ending and the seeds of our detectives' mistrust of the Feds are sown here.

7/10
