Storyline

Crockett & Tubbs and Switek & Zito have been taking turns protecting a man who's going to testify against a dangerous drug dealer. While under Switek and Zito's watch the man after getting a letter, runs. Castillo sends Crockett and Tubbs to find him, telling them that the man needs to testify in 48 hours. So they go to the Glsdes where he came from to find him but it's not exactly what they are use to. But they eventually find him and he tells them that he ran because the drug dealer got his daughter and will kill her if he testifies, which was in the letter he got. But he knows fully well that the dealer will kill her even if he doesn't testify so he ran and waited for them to show up so they can help him save her. Problem is that the place she's being held is fortified and they have at least three times more men than they do. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Crockett and Tubbs in a gripping Everglades adventure
10 March 2007 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

This tale takes Crockett and Tubbs from the seedy streets of downtown Miami to the marshy swamplands of the Everglades. When a protected witness, played by Keith Szarabajka, disappears while being looked after by Zito and Switek, Crockett and Tubbs race against time to find him. The chase leads to the Everglades and an unexpected chain of events unfold.

An exciting and unpredictable episode, "Glades" has a great soundtrack including tracks by The Animals and INXS, excellent performances from the cast, a fast pace and enough action to please most viewers.

9 out of 10.
