Another home run!!!
27 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the 4th and last episode in, we'll call this, the "bad boy" series. Like the others, this one doesn't disappoint. In my opinion, it wasn't quite as good as the other even though everyone else seems to think it is.

The episode starts off nicely and is great up until the end where it seems rushed and is rather boring. The acting however, by both Johnson and Thomas especially, is some of the best ever in Miami Vice. This is probably where the rave reviews come from. The supporting acting is great also, with most of the guest stars coming back from the last episode. Matt Frewer, does a particularly nice job.

I think the MV crew would have been smart to continue this "bad boy" story until the end of the season, which would have set up a particularly AWESOME season finale. No matter, this was a great one. 2 episodes in to season 5 and I'm loving it.
