Not much to say about this one.
25 July 2012 | by cory5521See all my reviews

Not a bad episode. Tucci did an excellent job, as he did during his first appearance and it was cool to see Windcott in such an early role. The problem is the show never really did anything and had a very predictable ending. A "mail in" story as was common with many of the episodes in season 4 & 5. The guest acting saved this one from the gutter in my opinion. Not much else to say but I need more lines of text so here goes the blah.

It kind of reminded me of a season 1 or 2 episode but it was just completely weak. There was a scene where Crockett and Tubbs hop in the Testarosa and haul butt while some cool music plays, but even this scene was a watered down version of seasons past. You could do a lot worse as far as MV episodes go but don't expect too much.
