Seems like an attempt by Michael Mann to make a spin-off
17 May 2009 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This episode is a little half-baked with Crockett's protégé Hardin joining the "YCU" or "Young Cops Unit." This hip, young unit listens to heavy metal, respects women, says no to drugs, and catches bad guys! We see a young Laura San Giacomo in this episode as well as the good-looking science/computer lady.

All in all, the episode was nothing more than an after-thought at the end of a great series in hopes of keeping the Miami crew working on a new spin-off. It's not hard to see why a 13 episode deal wasn't ordered. What was needed was a bigger, badder bad-guy with even more explosions, gun fights and babes in bikinis. Michael Mann just needed to have his writers produce something a little more higher budget to keep the public and the execs interested.
