Tough To Get Involved With Some Of These Drug Stories
18 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some of these drug-related stories were a little confusing in spots. Here we have two villains but they almost competitors. One is grooming the other to take over but the young one acts like he's going to do whatever he wants. Then we have a former girl of the boss, who is now a hooker but then gets transported back to the boss, thanks to the young guy. It does get confusing. Even more when Crockett thinks the girl could help break the case but Tubbs has zero confidence in here.

We also have some guy named Ivory, played by trumpet great Miles Davis. What's his connection? Once again, I wasn't exactly sure. I do know Davis is a lot better musician than actor. The program did this periodically: invited some singer or musician on the those as a guest actor. Most times they couldn't act.

Thankfully, "Silva" made things a lot easier for me halfway through the show when he eliminated the competition and then Crocket went into his "Sonny Burnett" imitation.

Overall, this wasn't that good episode for the above reasons, and one other big one: nobody to get involved with. The only possible "decent" person was Silva's girlfriend but she was unlikable too, and weird-looking, hard-looking woman. At least I heard one of my favorite songs of the '80s: "Slave To Love" by Bryan Ferry.
