Some deep family stuff
14 February 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

"Child's Play" opens with some pretty dark stuff - Crockett shoots a kid in the line of duty - and there's some nice material to work with here. Don Johnson certainly offers a great performance; and I like that they used his brooding to bring back Caroline and Billy (what better time for Jan Hammer to bust out with Crockett's Theme?). Eventually, it moves a bit away from this, turning into something larger with Chicago gangs and gun running (not to mention Isaac Hayes and Ving Rhames).

But it's really about the painful decisions brought about by the high cost of Vice work. Don Johnson owns this episode, and as the later seasons go, it's a winner.

8/10
