Memorable episode with outstanding performance from Bruce McGill
3 June 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Out Where the Buses Don't Run" is an episode that I must have seen half a dozen times since its original broadcast. As a result, the impact of this tale may have been diminished through repeat viewing but it remains a strong episode nonetheless.

Opening with The Who's "Baba O'Riley" and an appearance by Little Richard as a preacher, the episode hits the ground running and doesn't pause for breath. There are many memorable scenes and the incredibly atmospheric sequence with Sonny's Ferrari roaring through the night streets of Miami accompanied by Dire Straits' "Brothers In Arms" will have hairs standing on end.

Repeat viewings have made me question some plot elements but it remains a solid episode with Bruce McGill delivering a stand-out performance as retired Vice cop Hank Weldon.

8 out of 10. Haunting.
