A modern morality tale on the perils of gambling
20 August 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"The Fix" is a strong episode from Season 2 that shines with its superb cast. Directed by movie legend Dick Miller, the opening bird-filled sequence is exciting and sets the scene for a memorable tale. I don't know if Miller is interested in exotic birds but the pre-titles action occasionally pauses for yet another angle on a parrot or other feathered friend before cutting back to the heroes in pursuit of the bad guys! The unmistakable Harvey Fierstein appears as corrupt lawyer, Benedict, while "Seinfeld"'s Michael Richards plays the creepy main baddie. Basketball legend Bill Russell steals the show, though, as the judge who is the victim of his own gambling habit.

While the finale is almost trademark "Miami Vice", this is a well paced and gripping morality tale.

9 out of 10. As always, Hammer's music is perfect for the mood of the show.
