'Out Where the Buses Don't Run' deserves every bit of its esteem. Simply put, it's "Miami Vice" at its best, packing all of the show's genre signatures (action, mood, shootouts) and also showing the perils of the job and what these cops are up against. It's off-kilter from the very beginning and it builds to an ending that I can only describe as a foregone conclusion . . . but still a major rug-pull.

But it wouldn't have nearly the impact it does without the right casting choice for the unbalanced ex-cop at the center of all of this. That end, Bruce McGill is what makes this episode. He's charismatic, unnerving and memorable in every respect. The guest stars in this entry are all high-caliber but McGill stands as one of the show's very best.

Outstanding.

10/10
