Genuinely gripping drama
18 May 2007 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

As the first season of "Miami Vice" draws near, "Evan" demonstrates the show's ability to deliver gripping television cop drama with Hollywood production values.

The opening is explosive and dramatic with a failed police raid on a warehouse, accompanied by Peter Gabriel's "Rhythm Of The Heat". Stirring stuff, as you'd expect from director Rob Cohen.

The episode unfolds beautifully with a top drawer performance from Don Johnson, one of the most underestimated small screen actors. The tension from the previous episode between Crockett and Tubbs continues here as Ricardo desperately tries to understand what is haunting his troubled partner.

William Russ is excellent as the title character, the tortured Evan, a man on the very edge.

Jan Hammer's theme for Evan is one of his strongest pieces of music from the first series and adds yet more gloss to the proceedings.

Full marks for this episode. They just don't make shows with production values like this anymore. I love "Miami Vice" when a large proportion of the action takes place at night and this episode is full of atmospheric shots of Miami after-dark.
