Stone cold
3 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One thing I've always liked about 'Stone's War' is that it's unusually jam-packed with pop songs, and they're all great. It's something you take for granted - you know you're getting '80s songs in a Miami Vice episode, but it's a treat to be turned onto something new (like Steve Jones' Mercy, for instance).

This episode directly recalls last season's "Back in the Real World" with the continuing misadventures of Ira Stone (Bob Balaban), this time covering the hot-button issue of American forces in Nicaragua. Sadly, that also means the return of G. Gordon Liddy, who isn't top-=shelf villain material. The other big reveal is Crockett's brand-spanking new Testarossa with the requisite car chase to show it off. It's no Daytona, but it's still a big deal.

'Stone's War' is a bitter pill. The bad guys end up getting away with it and Crockett's left with the broken pieces. But it's a good way to wrap up the Stone sage and one of the better episodes of the season.

But seriously, the songs are fantastic.
