User Reviews

An excellent first season episode
2 April 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Smugglers Blues" was inspired by the song of the same name by one Glenn Frey. In fact, the talented Frey appears in the episode as the guitar playing bush pilot, Jimmy Cole.

This is, not surprisingly, a fan favourite. The episode has a great use of locations and a fast-moving plot, with Crockett and Tubbs journeying to Cartagena in Colombia. Accompanied by Frey's "Smugglers Blues", the tale is entertaining, tense and gripping.

With a kidnapped Trudy in genuine danger, this episode has a nail-biting and memorable finale.

Again, Paul Michael Glaser shows his usual strong directing skills here. Jan Hammer's soundtrack is the icing on this delicious Miami cake.

One of the best stories of the first season - 10 out of 10.
