A brilliant start to the second season of Miami Vice...
11 February 2008 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This two part season premiere feels more like a film. The script writers on this knew what they were doing and they succeeded. "Prodigal Son" is a brilliant start the second season of Miami Vice. It's got everything: Story, Action, Music & Style. Jan Hammer's score is absolutely fantastic. Crockett & Tubbs in New York, amazing. It's a shame that they didn't do any other episodes this one in the later seasons because this was the one that made everyone want to watch Miami Vice and it's the season which made the show do very well in the ratings. Rating 10/10, I could watch this episode over and over again and I wouldn't get bored. Miami Vice is one of the greatest achievements in television history and of the 1980's.
