Miami Vice in New York City
8 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Season Two of Miami Vice started with a bang in this feature length episode which saw Crockett and Tubbs going from the jungles of Columbia, via the Everglades, to New York City in pursuit of a Columbian drug dealer who is killing any DEA agent who gets close to him.

When they get to New York they try to draw out the Colombians by putting it about that they have stolen a large quantity of cocaine from the Miami police evidence locker, unfortunately it seems nobody is interested. The situation is confused when Tubbs meets an old girl friend and Crockett is seduced by a beautiful but potentially dangerous woman.

As with all episodes the look is very cool and accompanied by a great sound track. There is plenty action, most of it bloodless even though people get shot... while wearing clothes that look almost perfect for showing blood; just a sign of the times that it was made, it seems odd now that it was considered a violent series at the time.
