Trivia

In the open when one of the thugs shoots the victim a second time he says "You don't look so bad - here's another" which was reported (likely incorrectly) to have been said by Bernhard Goetz in a highly publicized New York City Subway incident which occurred the prior year (1984). See more »

During the sequence where Crockett goes out on his motorboat to think things over, the sun keeps moving up and down as the camera cuts back and forth between the flashbacks and Crockett on his boat. See more »

A splendid episode of this classic series
16 May 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Nobody Lives Forever" is a superb episode of "Miami Vice" from director Jim Johnston. Beginning with action accompanied by George Thorogood's "Bad To The Bone", the opening sequence climaxes with the ketchup strewn destruction of a lunch truck. Good, messy fun!

There's romance in the air for Sonny Crockett who has fallen for the undeniable charms of beautiful, up-market Brenda, played by Kim ("Manhunter") Greist. As a result of this relationship, Crockett's work starts to suffer, posing serious questions about his future as an undercover cop.

There's a terrific soundtrack to this episode, including Red 7's "Heartbeat". This seems to be a Mann favourite - he used this for the end titles of the aforementioned "Manhunter". Another memorable track is Glenn Frey's "New Love".

Don Johnson's performance is pitch perfect and the episode is both realistic and moving.

There's great continuity with earlier story lines. Here, mention is made of the untouchable Lombard, last seen in "One Eyed Jack."

9 out of 10.
