Goofs

The arms dealer is asked for "Mossberg 870" shotguns. In fact, Mossberg has never made a model number "870" as all of their models are in the 500s. Remington Arms makes a Model 870 which is likely what the writers meant, but weren't able to use for some reason. See more »

Has it where it counts
23 July 2017 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

With a name like 'Baseballs of Death' (silly though it is), one can't be blamed for assuming this'd be about, y'know, baseball. I mean, look at hos many other sports have already been used on the show: jai alai, basketball, grand prix, football.

Turns out it's a euphemism for cluster bombs, and this is another tale of gunrunning to third-world conflicts. It plays out according to Miami Vice formula; the team (all of them, not just Crockett and Tubbs)happen on a no-good Chilean with DEA ties and run down all leads until the big chase scene. But it moves, and proves an engaging episode.

For a wildly uneven season, this is terra firma.

7/10
