A gritty, hard edged tale
28 June 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is one of the darker "Miami Vice" episodes featuring prostitution, drug abuse and murder. An ageing drug dealer's seedy passion for a beautiful young woman gives Crockett and Tubbs the opportunity to bust the bad guys.

As the credits were coming up on the screen, I found myself wondering just how many times the final screen shot shows just a close-up of Sonny Crockett. There's no doubt that Philip Michael Thomas' Tubbs is overshadowed by his partner in the majority of the stories. In this episode, Tubbs is actually a less sympathetic character than Crockett, showing little sympathy for the plight of the young addict who is helping the two detectives.

Bryan Ferry's "Slave To Love" is the strongest track from this episode.

8 out of 10 - this one leaves a sour taste in the viewer's mouth but it's quality drama.
