And so the third, darker, season of "Miami Vice" begins...
11 April 2008 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"When Irish Eyes Are Crying" is a strong opening to the third season of "Miami Vice". Starring a baby faced Liam Neeson, this tale never sat comfortably with me in the '80s as it attempts to cover the subject of the IRA. Such a difficult and complex topic doesn't really fit the "Miami Vice" format and some lines are awkward and contrived. Tubbs is sporting spectacles, perhaps to add an element of pseudo- intellectualism to the proceedings.

Despite these reservations, it's not a bad episode and it has some unforgettable scenes, particularly Crockett's visit to an arms dealer. There are times when it may not be a good idea to question the quality of a dealer's wares...

Gina, played by Saundra Santiago, has never looked better. She radiates a natural beauty here and delivers a solid performance.

This season has a harder edge than the previous two and uses a more sombre colour palette. On the fashion side, Crockett starts to roll up his sleeves. Gone are the pastel colours, replaced with a darker wardrobe.

8 out of 10. This episode contains music from Lennon, The Pogues and Patti LaBelle and Bill Champlin.
