Best episode ever
11 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is my favorite episode of Miami Vice, maybe my favorite episode of any TV series. For a show that was heavy on style and action, not too mention the typical cop show format of good guys chasing down the bad guys, this episode is also surprisingly leftist. In fact, it's more leftist than shows from truly liberal series like Lou Grant or LA Law. "Stone's War" features superb performances by Bob Baliban and G Gordon Liddy (reprising their roles from an episode of the previous season). The plot revolves around Liddy supplying arms to unnamed fighters in an unnamed Central American country (but it's evident that it's about US arms being shipped to the Contras in Nicaragua). The last scene, set to Jackson Browne's "Lives in the Balance," makes a powerful, unforgettable statement.
