The Best episode of all time
1 August 2007 | by (Slovenia) – See all my reviews

Streetwise from Miami Vice is one of the best episode ever made.Who written and directed this and where they make this episode's.Absulutly outstanding,the best episode.Streetwise tels about a cop plays by Bill Paxton who fall's in love for a hooker.But they were caught and they find a drugs by her,so Sonny has idea to use him to find the drug dealers and Rico plays a pimp who bails out the hooker and try to use her as bait,but it 's not going by the plan.So he must tell her who he is.Too bad was only that the cop die's on the end of the episode.The best of episode was that they were Wesley Snipes and Bill Paxton as special guest stars,and the scene with Tubbs and with Silk played by Snipes,were Tubbs beats's Silk was the best scene.What can i'say the best soundtrack,the best actors and the best plot.The soundtrack of the beginning was great,i'did know that was soundtrack from Don Johnson,it was great.Too bad that i'm only who comments this episode,i read some comments and nobody comment's this episode,why 's that ?The best episode ever made,stay with this episode,you like't.Season 3 of Miami Vice is the best,better than first two.I'agree with the comment who wrote Savage,he was right.
